    So.....
    Don't be so quick to toss WCU under the bus. Yes, last year's defensive fiasco/disaster/dumpster fire ultimately cost us a good bit. But that situation has been addressed. We won't be back to 2014-15 strength but we will definitely be much improved. We did start to see some light once our DC was fired, especially in the season ending game against South Carolina. We're 2-1 against Mercer and IMHO the two teams have been well matched in all three seasons. So, I expect it to be a well matched game again this season.

    Nope...The Bears are playing a transitional year into the SEC West instead.

    Mercer plays in the second toughest FCS league and then also plays Alabama and Auburn.

    If that doesn't qualify as pretty close to the toughest schedule, it'll do till a tougher one comes
    FU all the time.

    "It's not like we didn't know what was coming. We just couldn't stop them" -WCU head coach Kent Briggs

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the league’s roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    It's manufactured difficulty though. They have no chance to beat Alabama and Auburn. Those are nothing more than paycheck games. I have much more respect for teams that go out and play other quality FCS programs in the non-conference. EWU and UNI seem to do that better than anyone.
