Re: Top 25?

As far as being ranked midseason vs. postseason, obviously we all want to end up ranked, and that's a bigger accomplishment. But the reality is that being ranked earlier might well be more valuable to the program. How many people actually look to see who's ranked #24 in the postseason poll? But if y...

Re: Top 25?

It's wild to me how, after all the hullabaloo over us moving to FBS, so many people seem put out that fans are interested in any program milestones beyond winning Sun Belt titles. We didn't move up to FBS to join the Sun Belt; we joined the Sun Belt to move up to FBS. The Sun Belt was and is a means...

Penn State losing this week really hurt us.
The main way it hurt us is that it allowed Michigan State to jump us, at least temporarily.

Re: Liberty takes down Troy

If you want to cheer for Falwell and his "good Christian" AD who got fired for covering up sexual assault, go ahead. But if you think this loss isn't bad for the entire Sun Belt, including App, you're simply naive.

Re: No more Tuesday

ESPN give TxSt a 10% chance of winning and line is 17 points. Its more like 2% chance and 30 points to me. If TxSt is within 2 scores GS board will lose their minds, they are the best in the Sunbelt in their minds currently it seems. Agreed on the line, that seems like easy money. Of course they di...

Re: No more Tuesday

Rather play on Tuesday than Thursday. At least you don't play on four days' rest, plus no NFL or P5 competition.

That pole is pretty much a beauty pageant.....now 24 in the AP poll would mean something.
As far as I can tell it's not really a poll, just one guy doing the rankings. Agree that actually being ranked in one of the two major polls (or better yet, the CFP rankings) would be the standard.

Marshall did have some violations but I don't believe their wins or their rankings were vacated.

Re: Updated Polls

For all the "our focus" posts, here's the obligatory reminder that this is a message board, none of us are players or coaches, and whatever we "focus" on isn't going to determine whether the team wins or loses. If you are referring to me, I was speaking not of the team but myself. Getting ranked is...

Re: Updated Polls

It will help when we actually beat someone. We have been impressive so far but we haven't beaten a team with a winning record. If we survive the next three weeks, we'll have something to talk about. But, I understand why we aren't in the top 25 at the moment. Nobody's going to put us in the top 25 ...

Re: Updated Polls

Looking at next weekend’s schedule, I’m having a hard time finding the losses by teams ahead of us to help us move up much. Of course that doesn’t mean a surprise or two can’t happen. As always, as long as we keep winning we should keep inching in the right direction.

Re: Updated Polls

Say what you will about polls being meaningless, too early, etc. Personally I find it pretty damn cool checking the top 25 scores every week and knowing they’re directly relevant to App.
