    Eeyore. Put down the rope and step ladder, pal.

    The game is on the Mother Ship. It will be plenty paid attention to. Especially in Vegas.

    Playoff impilications matter a whole lot less to people regionally than most think. CFB is becoming more and more regionalized, just like MLB.

    Nationally, yes, no one will care. But in the SEC / ACC / Big 12 areas, people are taking note. I was talking with some family after the Bama LSU game this weekend, and one of the die hard LSU mentioned how App beat SC and how to his knowledge it was the first time a G5 had beaten p5 twice in one season. He led the convo about sunbelt conf champ implications and definitely had a higher level of respect for the conference than he used to. If we beat App in a close game and then both of us win our bowl games, both should finish season ranked top 25.

    You guys are like Republicans looking for media love. Ain't gonna happen, and frankly I'm not gonna lose a minutes rest worrying about it. When we matter nationally we'll get plenty of hate and some love.

Even though no NY6 slot is up for grabs, this is the first time in recent history that any G5 conference other than the AAC can possibly end the season with two top 25 teams.

    Imagine a situation where UL beats App 14-10 and both finish 11-2; then both hammer a perceived quality bowl opponent. I can't imagine a scenario where App would not be ranked at 12-2 with at least 2 P5 wins, nor where a 12-2 conference champion UL would not be ranked with a win over App and a quality bowl win on the resume.

    This outcome would go a long way toward separating the SBC from the MAC and CUSA, and would close the gap on the MWC.

    BEST part of this deal is that we will be MUCH better next year, especially defensively, while App only returns 3 defensive starters.
    I agree with us being better next season, but don't underestimate App St.

    I agree with MAT here. I will go beyond that and say most sports are becoming more focused than even a regional basis. People follow their own team and little else. Being able to watch your own team every game contributes to that. Talking heads on the networks saying same thing regularly also contribute to that perspective. Major events are of course the exception and the LSU vs Bama game was one of those.

    We having a historic season where we finally have a legit shot at winning out first ever conference championship in the sunbelt and we fighting about where our coach and AD will leave to. Throw in negative nancies who would prefer being miserable as opposed to aspiring to dream and I wonder how many people are actually enjoying this season. Because it seems our success this season has caused more stress for some than enjoyment.

    I don't need a sentence to spend time enjoying a good point.

    To paraphrase "This has been the most relevant, interesting SunBelt in the history of the football playing league as currently construct. If the Cajuns and Neers play for an SBC title, it will also be the most relevant, interesting and nationally paid attention to game in SBC football history."

    Not underestimating them at all. Next man up at App will be pretty darn good. But losing 8 starters on D will take a little time to overcome no matter how good the next man up is.
