Marshall, North Texas are separating from the the pack

Recommended Posts

Call it Separation Saturday.

Marshall and North Texas did what they do last week. The Herd kept up its stingy defensive ways, in a 35-3 win over Old Dominion. The Mean Green put up 441 yards of offense in a 29-26 win over UTSA, which leads C-USA in total defense.

Clearly the class of the league at the moment, Marshall and North Texas stayed atop our rankings as co-No.2s. 

2. Marshall (5-1, 2-0): The Herd is the first team in league history (22 years) to not allow a TD in its first two conference games.  Up next: Friday, at Middle Tennessee.

2. North Texas (4-2, 3-0): Led by QB Mason Fine and RB Jeffrey Wilson, the high-powered Mean Green are threatening to pull away in the West. Up next: Saturday, at FAU.

We really need the W vs FAU, Marshall looks good so far but look at the rest of the Marshall schedule.. Their last 5 games are tough with the easiest opponent being by schedule being MTSU, if they can survive that then it will be a really challenging game (if we play them)..

Big game as well between USM and LAT.. one of them will have 2 loses

With Marshall having such a tough schedule to end the season, that half of the conference is still wide open and anyone's for the taking.

Our side is still pretty open.  But UNT is firmly in the driver's seat.

If we beat LA Tech, it would take a pretty big upset for us not to win the West Division

We are the only undefeated.  But there are 4 with only 1 loss.  Granted, we gave 2 of them their only loss.  But it's still an open division.  We could be 1 or 2 injuries or even a few bad calls away from having it all slip away.

And if LATech beats us and runs the table, and we are able to also run the table, then we are all several weeks from being the BIGGEST nUTSAck fans that ever existed for the last week of the regular season.

This place would turn inside out.   Let's not let it get that close.   Starts this week @FAU.

I'm not counting ODU, Rice or UTEP as easy wins. This team is different, but if they catch us sleeping on them they could take it to us.

Never said it wasn't open, but even with a loss to FAU this weekend, if we avoid the upset train of UTEP, RICE, or ODU, a win at La Tech would win us the West Division.

Very premature pronouncement, IMO.  But good light reading.  Just keep winning.

Exactly.  Wasn't it just two weeks ago that one journalist said that UTSA going undefeated was pretty much a gimme?
