Lost two starting WR's and Kam Bryant is serviceable but no world beater at QB to make up for it. We are also small in the trenches unless some of last years redshirts step up. I would put us at 8. Idaho and GSU are still in the bottom and G Southern is trying out a new offense. Best case 6, worst case 9.
I think trying to forecast anything beyond the first 2 spots is problematic.

Or bottom two spots(Idaho/GSU). Yes 3-9 are very fluid. My personal opinion of where App will fall is 6-9. Could I be wrong of course. That's why they play the games. Just giving an opinion.

I agree they are high as well, but who jumps them? Its a new sunbelt, perceptions will change quickly I feel.

I will actually be shocked if we fall below Idaho and NMSU.

Southern Pigskin covers the SEC, ACC, and SoCon and is adding the
Sun Belt since App State and Georgia Southern are joining.

Why is the Arkansas State article filed under SoCon?

They are just now adding the Sun Belt. They don't seem to have a separate SBC section yet.

Presumably because they haven't gotten around to creating an SBC section. They are only covering the SBC because App and GS joined so I doubt they are very versed on our individual teams yet.

I agree they are high as well, but who jumps them? Its a new sunbelt, perceptions will change quickly I feel.

It's tough to say. The conference is pretty level overall. I think Troy will ahve to prove themselves as they have slipped recently and ULM showed what they are without Browning. Yes they have a transfer but not sure what impact that will have yet. I think USA is number three right now. App St may be higher then TXST by having the "easier" confernece schedule. But App St has a lot to prove after last season even if they have returning players.

I think stAte and UL are the top two and GSU, Idaho, and NMSU are the bottom three. The rest is a wash.

Of course someone will surprise everyone and someone will disappoint.

How do we have the easier conference schedule playing Louisiana and stAte on the road?
