    A lot of cosmetic work has been done to the stadium since then. New fencing around the field, new turf, signage, pressure washing, etc. It is looking better than it has in awhile.

    Of course, they did add that ugly ass yellow handicap ramp down to the field on the north end.

    Re: Southland Off-Season News

    ACU has already offered 18 players from Arizona and I'm sure there will be many more before it's all said and done. This can be attributed to our new DC Clint Brown who recruited heavily there when he was at SDSU. I'm interested to see how many sign with ACU and how strong this pipeline can become.

    NIce! AZ is a great state for athletes. One of our best basketball players came from there..and our basketball coach! The best thing to happen to us was when our previous coach opened a recruiting avenue to Florida and Alabama. We already recruited Texas and Louisiana but got stagnant. Mississippi and Florida have been two strong states for us.

    I find it interesting that only one Southland team is in the top 25 here. While Nicholls is rightly considered the best team going in to this season, the entire upper half of the Southland has gotten quite a bit better the last few years. I don't want to **** on any other program, but I have a hard time buying into the assumption of this poll that Duquesne, San Diego and Monmouth, among others, is better than Central Arkansas, McNeese, SHSU and Lamar. Just like every other poll, I guess everybody is entitled to their opinion. I predict at least three Southland teams will eventually end up in the top 25 by the end of the season. Not sure which ones, though.

    Re: Southland Off-Season News

    With a complete reboot of the McNeese football program, I don't know what to expect from McNeese next season. It could end up being like this past basketball season after the complete reboot of the basketball program. Not very good but the future looks hopefully promising.

    I hope to see McNeese back strong again. I know with nearly everyone coming back to UCA, including those at the critical QB position, UCA will have a better record than last year. But looking at the schedule it appears it may just be a payday year. That's cool. It's not like we get too many home games anyway.

    Re: Southland Off-Season News

    Massey predicts the SLC will finish like this.....

    1. (20) Nichols 11-1
    2. (40) UCA 7-5
    3. (42) Lamar 8-3
    4. (44) UIW 8-4
    5. (50) ACU 6-6
    6. (53) SHSU 6-6
    7. (56) SLU 4-8
    8. (60) McNeese 6-5
    9. (67) NWLA 3-9
    10. (81) SFA 1-11
    11. (107) HBU 2-10

    when you look more closely at projected close scores , the SLC is likely to be a bareknuckled brawl. On Any Given Saturday was never more appropriate than for the SLC in 2019.

    Agreed. Nichols should be considered the favorite but I’m not sure they are clearly that much better than half a dozen other teams. After all, Nicholas lost 4 starters off their OLine and most of their D Line. Sam returns 18 starters. Lamar has some work to do on its D, but returns 9:starters from its potent offense. UCA and UIW get their QB’s back off injuries. ACU returns 16 starters off a team that beat Nichols.
