    Texas State

    As if Houston Baptist wasn't having a shitty enough fall, their year is just going to get worse when they give a bad TSU team their only win of the year.

    Prediction: 1-11 (0-8) 12th in Sun Belt

    Troy

    Am I saving the best for last here? Well, almost. Troy had a strong season last year taking eventual national champion Clemson down to the wire in week 2, handing Appalachian State their only conference loss, and finishing off a good Ohio team in the Dollar General Bowl. They did have a few blemishes losing to Georgia Southern on the last day of the regular season and getting stomped by stAte two weeks earlier.

    Troy is back with vengeance this year however as they return pre-season all conference QB Brandon Silver, a workhorse back in Jordan Chun, their top three receiving threats, and their three interior offensive lineman. They are going to be a force on offense this year.

    On defense they lost their top 4 linebackers but return almost everybody in the best secondary in the Sun Belt and both DTs from a solid D line.

    It's a god damn shame these guys don't play App St. this year. Would be a hell of a matchup.

    Troy opens the season at Boise State in a game that I might lean towards Troy in if it were in Alabama. But it's not so I'm taking the Broncos (as long as the field isn't a slip 'n slide). I don't think they have what it takes to beat LSU either but they should handle Alcorn State and Akron to finish their OOC schedule. I do have them falling in the last game of the season @ stAte in a close one but other than that they run the table in conference.

    I'm just realizing I said that they would beat stAte in the stAte preview. That is incorrect. I do in fact have stAte losing to Georgia Southern and ULL, but beating Troy. Please excuse my autism.

    Prediction: 9-3 (7-1) 2nd in Sun Belt

    Yeah, see.....ignore this part.
    Also this part has been corrected. Just the final place of USA and ULL. Everything else was already good.

    God, I swear I won't fuck up this much on the Idaho Preview and Idaho vs. Sac St. breakdown.

    Hell, it might be easier to just view the spreadsheet. Here's a pic, probably has some tie-breakers wrong.
