Six bowl eligible teams (and they all find a place to bowl)

We don't have much room to talk. We weren't very good until the end of the season, just got lucky playing elon and western carolina last, and then coming in hyped for the florida game.

well, I don't think any of our people are projecting us to be 3rd in the conference either. haha

No, but GaSo did have some posters last year saying they would be #1 in the Sun Belt this year. Check if you want.

I think if Monken had stayed and we brought the triple option into the Sun Belt we would do better next year. Considering that other teams don't run it we would have had a certain advantage. That is not to say that Fritz can t get it done but I see this year being a big learning curve as we enter the league. To me probably our ceiling is 5th and our floor is 10th.

I think you would have done well with Monken, but may actually do better long term with Fritz or Fritzie as some have called him.
The Sun Belt conference has better coaches. App State figured out how to handle Monken's attack. No doubt most of the Sun Belt would have also. Not to say all would have the personnel to handle it.

Tom didn't watch one Minute of App football last year based upon his comments.

RE: My predicted order of finish for 2014-- FB
I actually think Idaho might surprise some folks this year.

Past that, right now, I see the groups almost exactly like Tom does. Three tiers, and truthfully, any order within the tiers is totally reasonable. It's even possible with a key injury that the top and second tier, or second and bottom tier could have quite a bit of movement (but projecting injuries? YIKES).

In the end, I put Georgia Southern over App just because of the no "Cajuns and stAte" game... Though they do have to come get beat in San Marcos, so they might suffer a tremendous hangover from that.

Looks good to me. But App St probably won't finish bottom.

Admittedly App was king of having like 400-500+ yards in a game last season and only scoring 20 points. Almost felt bad for you guys.

I'm thinking 7-5 for the Bobcats and we won't lose to NMSU or ULM. USA is a toss up.

Seriously most Ga. Southern fans will pull for App in other Sun Belt games than the one in Statesboro. When App and Ga. Southern are both good the meeting between the 2 has much more meaning.

Yeah TX St vs ULM was one of the toughest games for me to predict because I don't know as much about your teams but I gave ULM the edge because they were the home team. Same for TX St vs NMSU. NMSU is at home and with both TX St and ULM so I figured they likely would upset one of you.

Did you feel as bad for us after the 38 to 14 beat down we put on you guys in football in 2013?
And yes, I pull for GaSo except when we play, and was happy when you knocked off Florida last year.
But I still hate you guys.

Went to the 38-14 game and I have never heard App fans so down on their team before that game. From talking to people at hotel and around Boone the feeling was that Satterfield was terrible and the team sucked. Of course we showed up and elevated their spirits.

I felt very good until McKinnon went out. After that we looked bad. If nothing else with Fritz here we are going to practice pass defense more. We certainly need it. Our secondary was nothing short of pitiful at App. last year.
