I expect ULM to struggle a little without Browning as well.

I would say UL will be favored in most publications, State will struggle to win more then 7. I haven't looked at schedules, but it would seem Texas State has a number of returning starters including the QB. I'm not as high on USA, because they lost a number of starters on both sides including some very good defensive players.

Jags only lose two starters on offense. One of those is the starting center and he's the only offensive lineman on the two-deep not returning, which doesn't include the return of USA's best lineman, Melvin Meggs, from an injury. The QB will be one of the best athletes in the SBC and one of the biggest arms in the country.
You're right that some valuable players were lost off of the defense, but six starters do return and some backups on last year's team are ready to step up.

Our schedule is pretty tough. Just getting to 2-2 out of conference means beating Utah State and their star QB but we do get them at home. Miami and Tennessee will be tall orders. We don't get Ga. So. or Troy. I think we beat Ga. St., Idaho, NMSU, ULM and App. St. and that gets us to 7. That leaves USA at home and road games vs. TXST and UL. I think we beat USA at our place. UL will be tough but we have had success there so not unwinnable. First trip to TXST and their DC knows us well.

We return everyone form our back 7 on defense. Our DEs are solid. Interior DL is our big unknown. We get back 3 starters on the OL. We return the leading WR in the league, a top TE, a star RB and an athletic QB who won a bowl game and rallied us to beat WKU before they scored on 9th and goal.

We may not run away with the league but don't count us out as we return from our one year departure from our offensive identity.

Winning one game in 15 tries is success?

The last one. The series has always been competitive but particularly since we let Roberts go.

Yes, Ross Metheny only had 2 years eligibility at South. Brandon Bridge, a 6'5" junior is the heir apparent and his back-up will be 6'0" soph Trey Fetner, unless he beats Bridge out as starter which is not likely as Bridge is a super athlete with a rifle arm.

USA vs. Louisiana in Lafayette should be a classic matchup as both should be the top two teams in the league this year.

If they go undefeated with their schedule, they will be in 03-wink Marshall is more likely to go undefeated but has about the weakest schedule in the country.

Lots of "bookmarking" to be had today. See you in Game 8.

With all due respect to Troy, this year will not be the best of times for the Trojans. Sorry.
