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?

I thought y'all dodged them this year. Or is that GS?

That's Georgia Southern that has neither one of them on their schedule.

Yet another reason to want divisions and a championship game. What it GS ends up one game ahead of UL and stAte in the standings? Championship games are a must in a league larger than nine teams in my opinion.

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

Pre season rankings don't mean a whole lot. Orlando Sentinel is ranking all 128 FBS TEAMS. Georgia State is 128 APP 126 Georgia Southern 124 they are on 118 no NMSU or Idaho yet.

Or to stay at 9 sometime in the future.
Then you would have 4 home and 4 away games and everyone gets to play everyone once each year.

Move Idaho to 6th slide the rest down accordingly. Maybe swap NMSU and Georgia State .

That is true and he even admits the SBC is his hardest to predict.

This is a safe ranking. Can't really argue too much with it.

However, my blue-tinted glasses (that are NOT worn at night) have me seeing Southern above USA. My pride and our tradition can't fathom some start-up team being better than us.

RE: Southern Pigskin Ranks Sun Belt Football Teams
So every Georgia Southern poster thinks the correct order is that App State is ranked too high, and should magically be place just below them.

Actual Southern Pigskin Rankings
1. UL
2. Ark State
3. Troy
4. ULM
5. USA
6. App State
7 Texas State
8. Ga Southern
9. Idaho
10. NMSU
11.Ga State
