Well your opinion I guess...

ULM looked a lot better than people give them credit for. They're a better passing team than USA. Saying they're the worst team in the conference is completely unfounded.

Never said they are the worst... but I would place a bet they won't be bowling.

1. Appalachian State
1. Troy
3. Georgia Southern
4. Louisiana
5. Georgia State
5. Arkansas State
5. Texas State
8. South Alabama
8. Louisiana Monroe
8. New Mexico State
11. Idaho

1. Troy: Easily the best win of the week. Deserves this ranking, even though I think it will just be for a week.

2. Appalachian State: Flat out embarrassed at home on the flagship station. Still very talented and will no doubt rebound.

3. Georgia Southern: ULM should have won, but didn't. Looked flat, but ULM had a lot to do with it.

4. Louisiana: Until we find a way to finish drives on offense we are easily beatable. Defense after switching to the 4-2-5 has been impressive. If Peters and Lightfoot continue to play like they did last night they will be 1st All SBC LBs.

5. NMSU: Scary good on offense, even without Rose. Scary bad on defense.

6. Georgia State: Good showing against Wisconsin.

7. Arkansas State: Schitsophrenic.

8. Texas State: Great win against Ohio, completely out classed by the porkers. Somewhere in between bad and good.

9. Louisiana Monroe: Will be dangerous from midseason on. Viator is a good coach.

10. South Al: Injuries, injuries, injuries. Best TE in the league and a pretty good QB.

11. Idaho: Well someone had to be last this week.

RE: Week 3 Power Poll
I like the way some on here feels the Cajuns have to prove themselves before we are taken seriously. Please keep it that way all that matters in Cajun Country is that we woke up 2-1, and 1-0 in conference with a great opportunity to knock off an AAC team this week. But because Only three belt teams won and it wasn't a big head to head weekend for belt teams. My top three for the week would be 1. Troy, 2. GaSo 3. Cajuns after that anybody guess.

Number 2 only because we are still undefeated (a better way to put it, 'We haven't lost'). My feel is we are # 4 as I feel App is still better than us.

Could the Cajuns beat your teams 2 weeks in a row? I haven't really seen much of Tulane, just know that they can run the ball. Pretty good across the DL too.

I went off of this weeks victories because overall I feel until you are beaten you are no. 1 On paper App St may be better than a lot of us but until they do it on the field they are not in my top three which is week to week not overall at least that's how I think they are doing weekly power ranking because if not I wouldn't have us three right now.

RE: Week 3 Power Poll
1. GS: As it stands, the Sun Belt's only undefeated team. ULM gives us fits every year so no surprise they played tough in Paulson.

T2. App: Disappointing show against #25 Miami but that attendance record though

T2. ULL: Solid win to start the conference slate (below 20k attendance? Really?)

4. Ga State: This is what happens when you take the modern SBC lightly. Good job Panthers!

5. Troy: Snuck away from the Golden Eagles with the W. The real Eagles will be watching y'all.

6. NMSU: Nice fight against the SEC, more fight than I thought y'all had.

T7. ULM: We about handed YALL the win on a silver platter. I was shocked at your passing game and how well prepared your defense was. I learned my lesson about sleeping on the Warhawks.

T7. USA: The sails on the boat are losing wind. I think y'all come back by the end of the season to go bowling.

9. Ark State: Do y'all even care anymore? If y'all run the conference after your poor showing in OOC, then I'm quitting football.

10. TXST: Ouch...

11. Idaho: Double ouch...

Honorable mention: Coastal's one point loss to a FCS national title contender

Troy took #2 Clemson down to the wire and just beat the CUSA West Division Champ and you have us #5 behind ULL and GASTATE...

Troy is clearly the best team in the Belt right now, not just because they beat USM but the overall performances over the past three weeks has not shown many weaknesses like the rest have

RE: Week 3 Power Poll
I defended our team two years ago when people said we weren't good because blah blah blah haven't beaten anyone blah blah blah NC State and Georgia Tech are moral victories blah blah blah did not play UL and StAte blah blah blah all losses to Power 5s are the same!

I feel the same thing with people calling "moral victory" with Troy's win over Clemson. It's okay to say Clemson is overrated and probably won't win 8 games, but don't stupidly act like there's much of a difference between beating a bad Kentucky team and narrowly losing to a Clemson team that probably won't get back to the CFP but is a top-25 team.

Weighing the first three weeks across the board, Troy is the best team.

1) Troy

3) Georgia Southern
4) ULM
5) ULL
6) Georgia St.
7) NMSU
8) USA
9) Texas St.
10) Idaho

Troy definitely deserves first. The rest are a crap shoot at this point. ULM probably doesn't deserve 4th, but I am a homer and do think we are WAY better than we have been given credit for, deservedly so albeit after last year. Viator is a good coach and we are young. I think we only get better as the season goes along and will have a similar season like Georgia St. did last year and possibly finish 6-6. Hopefully we make a Troy type move next year.

I can agree with this opinion (though I still feel we are # 4) but I think we'll see a shake up next week.

Great thing about this is Troy could likely go 3-1 in OOC play as we have Umass as our only OOC game left.

Imagine had the refs not screwed us and we beat #2 Clemson
