However, I feel like it's a lazy way to assemble the preseason all-conference team and it leaves out key transfers from FBS schools who will likely impact their respective teams in an all-conference way. But then again who cares it's just a preseason prediction that doesn't really matter anyway I suppose. Just my two cents.
    As a conversation piece, I have no problem with promoting returning players who were productive the year before. I hear ya on transfers and newcomers, and there are circumstances where maybe they should be considered, but we have no idea who will emerge and make all-conference type impact. We can guess but that's all it is.

    He's already getting looks from Pro scouts and teams. He's got great hands and strength. Solid at his position. Hate to lose the kid next year.

    Sorted by total pre-season all-conference players per team.

    Team Total 1st Team 2nd Team
    Nicholls 11 8 3
    UCA 7 4 3
    SELA 6 4 2
    SHSU 6 2 4
    UIW 5 2 3
    ACU 5 2 3
    NWST 4 1 3
    McNeese 3 3 0
    Lamar 3 1 2
    SFA 3 1 2
    HBU 3 0 3

    If a person were predicting the final conference standings, would this be a good measure?

    I don't think SELA will finish that high and I don't think Lamar will finish that low. But then again who knows? It's going to be one heck of an entertaining season.

    Amen to that. I knew last year was going to be a rebuilding year with the talent we lost but I had no idea we'd lose to McNeese and SHSU by a total of 5 points and one overtime...making us nearly 8-3 overall has we won those. But fate. Here's to another GREAT year in the SLC for ALL teams!

    There's a fine line for most everybody. Talent aside, teams that stay healthy, motivated and have a bit of luck in their corner, tend to do well. Those that don't, start looking to next year. It's next year, and a new year for us all ... until about week four or five.

    Yeah those TWO FBS games for most of us may thin out the herd a little.

    At least yours are somewhat winnable. But take care of business during conference play and it won't matter.

Sounds like the coach just wanted to test out his passing attack, got too cute and it ended up costing UCA the game. But that's just me.
