  1. Preseason polls are almost always just a rehashing of where things finished the year before. We sucked last year. Now if we actually finish 6th in the division this year I’d bet Littrell, himself, would agree it’s time to move on. I don’t see us being as bad as we were last year. Bennett isn’t going to fix the defense overnight, but he’s actually had an off-season to prepare and teach, where last year our brand new DC didn’t…and it showed.
  2. Quinn spawned the greatest avatar in the history of gomeangreen.com. Quoner!? That counts for something in my book. But this is Booger all the way….and then Cobbs, Quinn and Spencer. Booger was unbelievably fun to watch. All four of these guys were, really. Every single one of these dudes played with a chip on their shoulder. Quinn had the TD catch (against LaLa?) where the two defenders collided, knocking his helmet off but leaving him standing, flexing over them on ground. Spenser’s gorilla stomp celebrations, PCobbs ducking under and around would be tacklers. Booger had too many ridiculous plays to name, but my favorite was the fumble recovery for a TD against Baylor.
  3. That’s a dream scenario. Awesome!
  4. I wouldn’t necessarily count the cowboys out. Lamb is not the prototypical slot guy. He’ll eventually slide outside. McCarthy could be looking for that next Randall Cobb type do it all playmaker, which Darden fits perfectly. That said, my money is on KC or Arizona.
  5. Mason Fine, Freshman JaMario, Brelan 2004 2017 2013 Not a loser in the bunch, though. Freshman JaMario is still the second best player I’ve ever seen in green behind Booger. Factor in the entire offense, and 2013 goes to first, 2004 second and 2017 third. Oline matters.
  6. I’ll call for us to be at least .500 this year. I think we obviously win game 1. Then we’ll take one of the UAB/LaTech games. We probably lose the schmoo, Mizzou and Liberty games. But then I agree with Brett, the schedule gets easier from there and we finish the season on a win streak. Not going to pick individual games, because I still see us being inconsistent, but put me down for 6-6 or 7-5. Also, I don’t care how badly UTSA whooped us last year. That’s a win this year. Littrell has proven he can get to .500 with just a serviceable defense. Bennett isn’t going to deliver a world beater defense in year one, but it is going to be much improved over last year and will get better as we get games and experience.
  7. I’m on board elevating basketball. I say that on the day I renewed football season tickets.
  8. My father-in-law played for SFA back then and he says the same things. Both the Snake pit and Super pit were considered awesome and daunting places to have to go play and great to watch a game in. I don’t get all the push to build a new arena. It’s got to be all about luxury suites but I hate the new basketball venues built around suites first. They lose the intensity. The super pit, even half full is still a tremendous game watching experience.
  9. It’s been a few years now, but I had it on good authority that Mac was looking to move up fast. He was taking his assistants with him, too. See the ASU move. What I don’t know is if money was his thing or P5/blue blood bball school. Either way, if money could be a factor it’ll be across the board. We have to bump up pay for everyone of his assistants, not just him. Now, before everyone gets butt hurt, isn’t this what we said we wanted? We want hungry coaches on the rise, not decline. We just need to keep finding those guys and bringing them here and we’ll be fine. Not another Benford.
  10. All that ball movement definitely tires out the defensive perimeter. Asking those guys to trade threes with no rest is tough. Lack of a bench and not enough touches and scoring from Zach are what did us in during that big first half run. We went up against a better team who had a great shooting night and we never found the formula to stop it. Tip the cap.
  11. Schmoo and Mizzou, yes. That said, Buechele is finally gone so QB is an unknown for schmoo next year - no matter the accolades that their transfers have coming in. They’ll have to prove themselves the same way Ruder will have to do here. Don’t know enough about Liberty other than just their record last year. No CUSA school is far and away better than us. I’ll dispute that all day.
  12. Even though we’ve never done it, had the tournament been held last year I was fully expecting at least one, if not more wins. That was the strongest team we’ve had since at least the 90s and proved they could play with top 15 teams. Dang COVID. Our seniors are gutting it up this year, but the team lacks depth. I agree with others who are saying this game is going to come down to guard play. We will hold our own in the post unless Purdue either starts hitting from outside or are able to draw fouls on Zach/Bell. If we keep both of things from happening we might just pull out an upset.
  13. That KC play calling was killing me, though. Your oline is a shambles, so throw down field on every down and make them hold blocks longer?!
