I knew this was a boomer thread before even clicking the link
I think one point against bama, at their place with the biased refs would be a lot bigger accomplishment than a td shy of the ky
Unfortunately for the Sun Belt, the rest of the country looks at this conference as a joke. We currently have three teams (Texas State, App State, Ga Southern) who were in FCS just five short years ago with another one coming in next season (Coastal Carolina). We have two teams who didn't even have a football program within a decade ago (South Alabama and Georgia State). And now, our conference has made history as the first conference to have a team drop down to FCS (Idaho).
It's great that our teams are competing, but in the grand scheme of things, the information above is our national perception.
