Meh..one game is going to make little difference in that perception. Especially when the SBC perception now is that we have three pretty good teams, and 8 really horrible teams.

What we honestly need are the bottom teams stepping up. That's going to increase perception even more than App beating Tennessee.

Yes and no. Winning every possible OOC game will help the SBC. A rising tide raises all ships.

I agree. I just think that even if App, stAte, and GS all put up 10 win seasons, a lot of that accomplishment would be looked down upon if Texas State, ULM, NMSU, and Idaho all struggled to win 3 games.

The perception becomes we have 3 good teams who may or may not be really good because they get 7-8 free wins a year in league play.

Even so, we'd be better off as a conference than we are now.

Remember that the MWC, circa 2004-2011, routinely had teams winning 10-11 games a year, sometimes 2 or 3 of them. Utah, TCU, and BYU all took turns finishing in the top 15 because they won a lot of games. They won tough non-league games and took care of business in league play. That league, too, had seveal teams every year who won 0-4 games/year. That kept Utah and TCU on the outside of the BCS Championship (that, and the obvious bias against non-AQ leagues), but their achievements earned the MWC status as the top non-AQ league.

To me, everyone in the league needs to win more outside the conference, but the teams that can help the conference's perception the most are the ones at the top, not the bottom.
