A lot of us, myself kinda included, feel that MTSU is going to come in and be a big time threat right from jump.

In MTSU's last three games, they

Beat a 2 - 11 South Alabama team by less than a TD
Beat a 5 - 7 Troy team by less than a TD
Got Killed by Ark State 45 - 0

I believe they return 16 starters. 8 on both sides of the ball.

I don't know if they come in and be a big threat but I am excited they are in the league. Easy trip to watch the Herd play on the road and Nashville is a fun town. I really hope we bring in WKU as well as that is another program that has their mind right and is an easy trip for Herd fans.

As for us...no excuses this year. Not even if Cato goes down. Fro can step in and lead this team. It should be a fun year again.

Aaron you better believe they are.

Aaron you forgot to mention they finished the season 8-4 (6-2 Sun Belt) and beat Georgia Tech at their place. MTS was 2-1 in their last three games and Marshall was 1-2. I think Marshall would have taken less than a TD win over UAB. We lost to a 3-9 UAB and beat a 5-7 Houston team at home by less than a TD. We did worse in our last three games than MTS did in theirs.

Im just saying, they are not world beaters.

I do not believe they will come in and run through the CUSA East.

I agree with that. They wont run through it but will be one of the top three teams in the EAST.

I just think we're fortunate that at least for now, La Tech is in the west. They will be a bigger force than MTSU

I think they will stay in the West.

They were supposed to start out in the East for one year before moving to the West, but then FAU and MTSU was added which changed that.

I don't think La Tech will be much of a factor in the West this year. I think they lost most of their contributors from last seasons team.

So, we think a team that didn't even go to a bowl last year, in an era than any team with a .500 record goes to a bowl, is going to come in and whip everyone in the East? 

Had we played this year, MTSU probably would've been a FG favorite over us, at the most. And according to a lot of our fans we were a "terrible" team.

Why didn't they go to a bowl at 8-4? Politics? LA Tech didn't go bowling at 9-3 either yet Georgia Tech with a 6-7 record went bowling.

ps MTS beat GT at their place by 20..

LA Tech turned down a bowl bid.

GT got it because of conference rules. But, I see where you're going, in the first paragraph you're implying that GT isn't good, but got a bowl, in the second you're trying to pump up MTSU by saying they beat GT? 

They beat a mediocre GT team, they also lost AT HOME to a FCS team, actually a 7-4 FCS team that didn't even make the playoffs.

a mediocre GT team that owned USC in the Sun Bowl.

MTS didn't get a bowl cause the Sun Belt only has one or two tie in's and they sent three.

A USC team that had lost 4 of 5 and was without the best QB in college football arguably. 

GT was an average football team, their record dictates that. They beat 1 team that was 2 games over .500 on the season, that's it. MTSU beat them, an average team. They lost to McNeese, an average FCS team. 

Sagarin had MTSU as the 84th best team in the country. Two years ago they were 169th. Three years ago 138th. This is the team that we feel are coming in and dominating the East division?
