I think TY's body of work is still too small to make that claim. He had a good year last year but sometimes his numbers were inconsistent from week to week. When I think top receivers, I don't think of him. When I think top pass rushers, I think of Ware.

Osi Umenyora was also from Troy. Though not as touted as Ware, he is/was a top shelf athlete.

All I know is he put about 250 yards up on KC. It gave me nightmares back to when he would play ASU.

Only because guys like Charles Tillman and Ike Taylor [and a host of guys from other SBC schools] played before the SBC was formed.

Tillman is a lock for the hall of fame when he hangs it up.

The Sun Belt Conference was established in 1976.
It began sponsoring football in 2001.

Both Charles Tillman and Ike Taylor finished at UL in 2003, so they were drafted as part of the Sun Belt.

If you want to talk about pre-SBC players, Bill Bergey of state would have to be considered the best ever. A Hall of Fame linebacker for the Eagles in the 60's/70's, he was a first team pick for the "first fifty year NFL team". Can't get better than that.

Loved me some Bill Bergey back then. My fav player at that time.
