Either this poll is a joke, or our team is this year. If we turn out to be a lesser squad than Prarie View this season, we better just move down to D3.

**BUMP**

I just notice that Prairie View A&M is on the list and we are not.......goes to show how much pre-season polls are worth. Even discount HEB toilet paper has more valid info in the package that these things.

I hope the team sees this much disrespect being thrown at them and it lights a fire under their @$$ (seriously, Texas Southern and Prairie View A&M received votes and we didn't? What kind of Bush-league crap is that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Prarie View I can deal with cause they had a good season last year...but for TxSo to get votes is just asinine.

Texas Southern now has Bobby Reid and a slew of other FBS transfers. They will be improved from years past.

Bobcat.taxman...to discredit Prairie View A&M is to show a lack of knowledge on the subdivision. That program had the coach of the year and perhaps shocked the whole FCS community with their season. They could be even better this year...I had them in my 26-30 bracket, just on the cusp of the poll.

As far as Texas Southern goes, anyone who follows this poll knows there's always one or two things questionable about it. Same goes for any other polls. A quick glance at the poll shows the only things that really stick out is it seems the SWAC contingent made their voice heard and were the only ones to lend votes to their teams. Not sure why they did this considering TSU did not even get respect in their own SWAC preseason poll(s).

The individuals that vote in this poll are the SIDs of FCS schools and media. It is still considered to be one of the 'big three' in FCS polls with the coaches poll and AGS being the others. The SME broadcasting poll may soon join the group...

Forgot about that.....we get them at home this year.....correct? Wonder what kind of signs and cutdowns my friends and I.......................eeeeerrrr, I mean the Texas State student section will come up with to get inside his head. Maybe dress like an OSU coach and keep yelling "BE A MAN, YOU'RE TWENTY!!!!!!" when he throws a pick or two or gets sacked for a loss. Would it be illegal for us to play a clip of that coach on our jumbotron during the game also? That would be some funny stuff right there!!!!

Why do the Bobcats deserve some love? As it stands right now, in the SLC -- the SIDs and head coaches each picked them behind the five schools that did get votes. So, compared to SLC teams...you are exactly where you are meant to be.

I can agree that some teams from around FCS that did get votes (i.e TxSo) that should be behind you, but those who are in the SLC that vote in this poll did the right thing.

The Bobcats are going to have to earn their stripes and I don't think any of you will mind if the Bobcats come up and "surprise" someone. Doesn't that make it more enjoyable?

I've kept up with TxSo...I know about BR and their other transfers...still no reason to put them on a preseason poll IMO.

Texas Southern has like 50-60 newcomers from what I have been told. No one has seen a roster -- possibly because they do not have an active web site. ;)

I'll leave the banter up to you guys. Please "Hang 60" on them!

Never said there was. :)

I'd doubt we'll see TSU get in the top 25 in the next few years with their current coaching staff. If they do, I predict within two years of that, the NCAA will be investigating something they did wrong to get there.

Post Re: Sports Network - Preseason Poll
WTF?

When is our athletic department going to figure out that losing doesn't help? When f**king Prairie View and Texas Southern get votes...and we don't, it means our program is simply not a factor and no one even notices that we exist. Truly sad.

Let's recap the last TWENTY FIVE YEARS shall we??

ONE great season
and TWO OR THREE good seasons (maybe)
and TWENTY-ONE (or so) suck ass seasons...

I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but that track record doesn't bode well for the upcoming season...or any other in the next 10 years at least.

I'm 40, almost 41 now, and I've only had the pleasure of witnessing one great season from my alma-mater. I just have a hard time believing that things are going to change in Bobcatland before I DIE.

Ugh,
uh...Go Bobcats???
