If they think Troy will stay down forever your an idiot. You have had 3 bowls games since what? 1940. I wouldn't talk too much trash.

RE: South Alabama vs Troy
I'm not convinced USA will beat Troy this year but why wouldn't I as a fan expect a good close game considering Troy only won at home last year because of a freak hail mary INT in the last play of the game?

Or consider that Troy won by 1 point and we missed a 22-yard FG and a PAT earlier in the game... Those misses hurt more than once as they lead to the silly decision to go for it on 4th down (and no FG) at the Troy 5-yard line in the 4th quarter. Troy won the game where it counts, the scoreboard. But I'm not convinced USA wasn't the better team last year. A few mistakes and coaching decisions cost USA the game. I won't talk about the reffing; we all know that the conference took action after the game that the refs didn't take in the game that would have benefitted USA. I know stats are for losers, but I feel this is a game USA should have won (see box score below). That's not to say I'm making a prediction about this game. This year's game could go either way.

That sure is a lot of crying ... also, Sun Belt doesn't publicize suspensions on refs, so you got a link for that?

I don't think USA was the better team. I don't think Troy was either. It was pretty even to me. USA fans talk about that hail mary and refs, but there were two plays where USA got extremely lucky that went for touchdowns and a chunk of those 630 yards. Despite the high yard count, other than those two freak plays, Troy's defense held USA to reasonable numbers. It's not like USA owned Troy from start to right before the end, or even that USA was in control of the game. Troy lead 24-7 at one point and when it was 17-7, Troy fumbled near or in the red zone. It could have easily been 31-7. Hard to do if USA was the better team that day.

Did USA deserve to win towards the end that day? Probably. It hurts to have the rug pulled out from under you right at the last minute after you've made a nice comeback. A similar thing happened to us in 2010 when we were at UAB. Except we were up 23-7, and UAB came back at the end with a hail mary to win it 34-33. No lead is safe with our defense, that's for sure.

At 1:42 and 2:09 on the recap below its certainly Troy's fault these happened, but as bad as Troy's defense is, I've never seen freak plays of those nature from Troy. Early when Troy lead 17-7, Robinson threw a bomb into the red zone, and we immediately turned it over. Despite that and the two freak plays, we still overcame and won the game. Not saying Troy was the better team, but if USA was truly the better team, Troy would not have been able to overcome what it did to win the game.

Just pointing out you can't leave points on the field against Troy in Troy and expect to win. We played well enough to win but made enough mistakes to lose. It happens. Who pulled your string and why do you care?

I never said the refs got suspended. The refs made some questionable calls, but I was referring to the targeting/late hit that occurred right in front of a ref that was not called. The Sun Belt reviewed the game film for targeting (NCAA requirement) and issued a suspension accordingly.

As a side note, Troy winning this game might have saved Larry Blakeney's job... Would he have been able to survive another losing season with a loss to 1st year FBS team and rival USA? I know a few Troy fans that don't think so.

So, that doesn't say anything about the refs being suspended.
