Congratulations to Southeastern. Certainly the greatest moment in the athletics history. Even bigger than basketball making NCAAs in 2005. At least this team has a legit shot at making a run. Geaux Lions! :nana: :nana:...

I am thinking 11-5. That @ Rams game is scary. We lost up there in 2011 with a 13-3 team. And they just blew out the Colts at Indy. 8-0 at home 3-5 on the road is how I see it. Hoping NE can take care of Carolina and Saints at least split with them. 11-5 NOLA and 11-5 Carolina. Then go figure on a t...

FCS rankings are out of whack. Realize SE LA is ranked 88 in Sagarin poll(http://sagarin.com/sports/cfsend.htm) which includes all Division 1(FBS and FCS). I believe they are the third highest ranked FCS team in that poll. I think they are the best team in the Southland. ...

No. I went to LSU one semester. Graduated at SE La. Been an LSU football fan since I could walk. Live in Phoenix now, and a friend of mine who lives here from Oregon graduated from ASU and he is a die hard Ducks fan. So no it doesn't matter. I think it's more about where you are from....
