    2. Nicholls. Talented. Ready. If they can put it together.
    3. McNeese- Been too long. Talented.
    4. SLU- Talented. Could get 3rd spot.
    5. SFA- FBS laden. Talented. could get third spot.
    6. UCA- Reloading? Restarting? BIG UNKNOWN!
    7. Lamar- Not there yet.
    8. ACU- Same as Lamar.
    9. NWST- No.
    10. UIW- Um no.
    11. HBU- Not this year.

    What order do you have them?
    I agree with '97 that I would have ACU at #7, but add that UCA should be at #5. Although SFA could really surprise, I think UCA has the better history of winning and I think that will make the difference.

    There's a real good chance Nicholls opens the season 0-4. I'm not sure I know of a more over hyped preseason team out there. Amazing what a couple of close losses (and close wins) to the right teams can do for a program.

    Re: Southland 2018 Fall Thread

    Post your schedule so we can get a good view of what you think might happen this year.

    UCA:

    At Tulsa- FBS loss
    Murray State- win
    At SLU- tossup lean loss
    At SHSU- likely loss
    HBU- win
    At SFA- tossup lean loss
    NWST - win
    At McNeese- tossup lean loss
    Lamar- likely win
    UIW- win
    At ACU- lean win

    I could be way wrong. I've seen the talent on this team. Looks good. But let's see how it plays out with ALL the tough conference games on the road, new coach and new skill players.

    I have been saying that Nicholls is overrated going into the season. We will know for sure the 3rd weekend of the season.

    Nicholls was good the whole season and should have beaten South Dakota in the playoffs. If you are basing this year on the beatdown that Sam put on them last year, remember every team can drop an ugly deuce....:CSU-Pueblo.

    Iím not basing anybody on one game results but who did they beat last year? Barely got by McNeese....besides them who did they beat that had a winning record? Does scraping by the bottom dwellers of the SLC all year make you a ďgood teamĒ? 6-5 for 2018, no playoffs is my prediction.

    9/1 @ Baylor = Loss
    9/8 H Angelo State = Win
    9/15 @ HBU = Win
    9/22 @ SFA = Win
    9/29 H UIW = Win
    10/6 @ McNeese = Loss
    10/13 H Nicholls = Win
    10/20 @ SLU = Loss
    11/3 H NSU = Win
    11/10 @ SHSU = Loss
    11/17 H UCA = Loss

    I doubt we have this many "Ws", but I hope to pull off one between SFA and Nicholls. We are still hoping to be at 5-6 by the end of the year. Will the 5th "W" come somewhere else? Who knows.....

    Re: Southland 2018 Fall Thread

    Forgive me for drinking the purple kool-aid, but everyone so far says they expect to beat Northwestern State. The Demons were 4-5 in conference last year and beat ACU and SFA. This year the Demons have McNeese, Nicholls, and Sam Houston in Natchitoches. Just like with SFA who has some fans thinking Byrd may be a step up from Conque, how about a new staff bringing some pride and fire to the Demons? I really haven't checked to see who they lost or have coming back, but their qb Holgorsen returns. He set a passing record in Cowboy Stadium last year.

    Maybe everyone will beat up on them, but I would caution about being so eager to automatically chalk up a win against them.
