    Wasn't expecting that at all, but it's definitely exciting to see my team dominate. GG @JustinQuan
  7. 1. (40) Arkansas State Red Wolves (5-3, 3-1 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: Bye Positives: Arkansas State continues to look the part as the top dog in the conference (although there are a couple teams catching up). Georgia Southern should pose almost zero threat to the surging Red Wolves. Negatives: They did have a bye week, so maybe there's a little lost momentum, but I just don't see any way they fall to the Eagles at home. What’s next: vs. Georgia Southern 2. (36) Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (4-5, 4-1 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: vs. Texas State W 31-17 Positives: The Cajuns are really starting to hit their stride in conference play. After the devastating Troy loss, they've gotten two big wins in a row. The offense wasn't going to let anyone get in their way in this one. Andrew Ruiz was an efficient 20/30 for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns. Running back Raymond Herrera posted a nice line of 23/125/2 including a 38 yard touchdown in the third quarter. And the defense stayed strong enough to ensure victory for Lafayette. ULL is now in sole possession of first place in the West division race. Negatives: Louisiana-Lafayette has some tough games to end the year. After the bye week, they have away games against Coastal Carolina and Arkansas State and then get heated rival Louisiana-Monroe at home. They should have an easier time against Coastal and ULM than Arkansas State, but they are anything but guaranteed victories. Lafayette should be able to make a bow as long as they don't make any mistakes. What’s next: Bye 3. (32) South Alabama Jaguars (4-4, 3-1 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: Bye  Positives: South Alabama is still a really solid team despite falling to ULL two weeks ago. They should have their heads on straight following the bye week and I expect them to come out angry against ULM. Negatives: The game is on the road which may make things slightly tougher for the Jaguars. A loss here would essentially eliminate them in the Sun Belt West race.  What’s next: at Louisiana-Monroe 4. (26) Georgia State Panthers (3-5, 3-2 Sun Belt) Change: +2 Last week: vs. Appalachian State W 24-9 Positives: After I had been bashing him the first few weeks of the season, Zachary Mattson has started to look really good for the Panthers. He totaled 239 total yards by himself to go along with 2 touchdowns in this one. Running back Samuel Coyne added 111 yards and a touchdown of his own to solidify the overall offensive performance. Georgia State is now in a decent position for a bowl game if they can navigate the rest of their schedule without tripping up more than twice and I think they'll be able to do just that. Negatives: They didn't score as many points as I would've expected, but they played fairly conservatively in order to make sure they wouldn't lose. Although the rest of their schedule looks pretty friendly, three of their last four are on the road. So far the Sun Belt has shown that anybody can beat anybody so it'll be tough to make it through that schedule unscathed. They start with what looks like the Week 12 Sun Belt game of the week as they take on Coastal Carolina. What's next: at Coastal Carolina 5. (22) Troy Trojans (3-6, 3-2 Sun Belt) Change: +2 Last week: vs. Georgia Southern W 28-18 Positives: Troy has started to look really good at just the right time. This win puts them in first place in the East division. The offense looked almost unstoppable as they gained 371 yards of offense and didn't turn the ball over at all. Jose Lynn looked like a true dual threat, gaining 190 yards with 2 touchdowns through the air and 72 yards and a touchdown on the ground. They won't be out disciplined either as they were penalized just 4 times for 26 yards. Negatives: They weren't able to do much of anything in the first or fourth quarters. If they can't start fast or finish strong, it may hinder their ability to win the East. They also gave up quite a few yards to a pretty bad Georgia Southern offense. Their last three games they play some pretty solid offenses so they'll have to shore that up pretty quickly. It's unfortunate they have a bye this week as they have started to build some momentum. What’s next: Bye 6. (21) Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (3-5, 1-3 Sun Belt) Change: -2 Last week: Bye Positives: The bye week gives the sputtering Chanticleers a chance to regain some momentum and go for bowl eligibility. They're lucky that they get Georgia State at home otherwise I'd be pretty pessimistic in their chances. Negatives: The offense has not been good as of late and Georgia State has got some momentum coming into this one. Coastal will have to be on their A-game to beat the Panthers at home. What’s next: vs. Georgia State T7. (14) Texas State Bobcats (2-6, 2-2 Sun Belt) Change: -2 Last week: at Louisiana-Lafayette L 17-31 Positives: While the results of the games haven't exactly went in Texas State's favor, they've had some young players stand out this year to give fans hope for the future. One of these players is monstrous freshman defensive tackle Jeremy Spears. I know I've talked about him before, but it's impressive how much he appears on statsheets as a DT in a 3-4 scheme. The 6-7 334 Woodsboro, TX native had 4 tackles, 2 tackles for loss and a sack agains the Cajuns. Even if the Texas State faithful don't have much to praise this season, they have plenty to look forward to. Negatives: I'm not sure the defense was aware when this game started as ULL jumped out to a 14-0 lead almost immediately. As the game went on they started to play better, but at that point the offense was too far behind and was forced to be one dimensional and David O'Rourke does not thrive in those situations. I'm sure coach rabidsnowman wasn't expecting a bowl at this point, but this loss pretty much guarantees the Bobcats won't be bowling this year. What’s next: at Appalachian State T7. (14) Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks (2-6, 2-2 Sun Belt) Change: +1 Last week: Bye Positives: Getting a bye week to prepare for one of the best teams in the conference is never a bad thing. They also get the Jaguars at home, so anything could happen. If Martin Johnson has a big day, I could see ULM having a chance. Negatives: South Alabama also had a bye and have also been a much better team to this point, so I'd be surprised if Louisiana-Monroe pulls this one out. What’s next: vs. South Alabama 9. (7) Georgia Southern Eagles (1-7, 0-4 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: at Troy L 18-28 Positives: The offense actually played fairly well despite not having a coach. Ian Sorensen threw a pick, but also went 20/38 for 250 yards and 2 touchdowns. Freshmen Ali Still and Jude Herring were disruptive, with each sacking Troy quarterback Jose Lynn once. Despite their troubles this season, Georgia Southern has the top recruiting class in the conference and should look good for years to come. Negatives: Well despite the optimism last week about the Eagles having a new coach, he has yet to appear on the job. This showed defensively for the Eagles as Troy ran and threw all over them. While I don't think I've talked about him much, JUCO product Messiah Sheppard has been anything but spectacular this year and this game added to that. He carried the ball 13 times for just 44 yards. And while I'm certain they weren't expecting a bowl, this loss officially eliminated them from contention. What’s next: at Arkansas State 10. (5) Appalachian State Mountaineers (1-7, 1-3 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: at Georgia State L 9-24 Positives: They scored a touchdown and freshman LB Zach McNeal had 6 tackles. They didn't give up as many points as I thought they would. There's always next year. Other than that, this team is bad and there are few positives. Negatives: We'll start with special teams. Kicker Gary Smith missed an extra point and a field goal. The offense was anemic yet again. When you get just 159 total yards on offense it's going to be hard to win football games. It's a shame stud receiver Jermaine Jennings doesn't have a solid QB to throw him the ball as he could be a very special talent. It's probably time to start worrying about the future of Mountaineer football as they don't have much talent on the team and rank just 130th in recruiting rankings. Hopefully they can turn it around. What’s next: vs. Texas State

    I'm not sure if you were looking at the wrong row, but these aren't right. Goodson is my backup TE and has 21 yards on the season. Other than that, this is really awesome to get a glance at who some of the premier guys in the sun belt are!

    [2022] Imposter's Bowl Projections: Post-Week 11

    Woo bowling! I'd love to play to UAB, I think that'd be a fun matchup. Now it's time to take care of business the last few weeks so it becomes reality.

    [2022] Week #11 - TNF

    Sun Belt games went pretty much as I expected them too. Georgia State's offensive line rating was unusually low for some reason though. Only surprising thing from this slate to me is the UTEP loss.
  12. I think Arkansas State will take the division and the championship too. I personally think Georgia State will take the East, but too close to tell at the moment. Right now I see you, South Alabama, Arkansas State making bowls for sure and then one or two of the five loss teams. Probably Georgia State and possibly me if I can put together an offense for the last few games.
  13. 1. (40) Arkansas State Red Wolves (5-3, 3-1 Sun Belt) Change: +1 Last week: vs. Coastal Carolina W 24-14 Positives: Salas and Bishop had yet another efficient outing for the Red Wolves. The Arkansas State defense completely shut down the Chanticleer offense, giving up less than 200 total yards. The Red Wolves really closed the game out well in the second half. It was only a 10-7 game at half, but they tightened up their defense and kept the offense humming on their way to the victory. This win sets up the Red Wolves nicely for the rest of the season. After the bye three of their last four games are at home. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Red Wolves finish with a nice nine win season. Negatives: It seems like Arkansas State should've been able to put up more points on Coastal Carolina, given how well their offense has played in previous weeks. Some of this may be due to the offensive line having just a 2.9 rating and giving up a pair of sacks. It's hard to complain too much about this offense and their defense could do no wrong in this one. Hopefully they don't lose any momentum with the bye week coming up. What’s next: Bye 2. (35) Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (3-5, 3-1 Sun Belt) Change: +3 Last week: at South Alabama W 27-16 Positives: What big win for the Ragin' Cajuns. Going into Mobile and coming out with a win was a tough task, but they got it done. ULL clearly came in with a plan to not allow the Jaguars to have anything on the ground. This plan worked out very well as they held USA running back Ray Jay Dougherty to 30 yards below his season average going into the game. With the Jaguar offense neutralized, all the Cajuns had to do was be safe with the ball on offense to win the game. This win significantly helps ULL's chances of a bowl and potentially winning the division. Negatives: With the all-out gameplan against stopping the run, Louisiana-Lafayette did give up some big plays in the passing game. Rafael Higgins was able to pass for 209 yards and a touchdown with relative ease. Coach Dr_Novella might make a point to his team to cut down on penalties too. They were penalized 7 times for 65 yards, and a reduction in that department could lead to more comfortable victories down the road. These were really sort of nitpicky things, because ULL honestly played very well this week. What’s next: vs. Texas State 3. (31) South Alabama Jaguars (4-4, 3-1 Sun Belt) Change: -2 Last week: vs. Louisiana-Lafayette L 16-27  Positives: There's no reason to panic in Mobile. The Jaguars still have the make-up of a solid team and as long as they continue to play their game the rest of the season they'll be fine. Their defense was still fairly disruptive, sacking Andrew Ruiz twice and intercepting him once. Higgins didn't have a bad day, even with Dougherty having a lousy one. They were able to find some big plays over the top of the Lafayette defense and I'm sure this is something head coach rocksaucesundae will look to continue. Negatives: This loss hurts South Alabama quite bit. They are now tied for the lead in the division and do not currently hold the tiebreaker. They'll have to win out and hope ULL loses again if they want to take the West and go to the Sun Belt championship game. Kicker Jeremy Adams missed a second quarter field goal following an interception that killed some momentum they were starting to build. It seems that if Dougherty is shut down, the offense will not function as smoothly and I'm sure this is something future opponents will take note of.  What’s next: Bye 4. (25) Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (3-5, 1-3 Sun Belt) Change: -1 Last week: at Arkansas State L 14-24 Positives: Holding Arkansas State's potent passing attack to just 24 points is no small feat. The Chants were also able to cause some disruptions in the passing game, sacking Salas twice and picking him off once. Of Coastal Carolina's four remaining games, the two toughest are at home, which helps considerably. The loss against Troy makes it tough, but this team is still fighting for bowl eligibility and this bye week should give them some time to get their heads on straight. Negatives: This offense has been bad pretty much all year, save for the Texas State game. This contest was no different. Coastal failed to muster up even 200 yards of offense and that's just not a winning formula against arguably the best offense in the Sun Belt. Reese threw two more costly picks, giving Arkansas State great field position. It may be time for Coach imerman to question whether Reese is the right guy for the job. If Coastal drops their next game, it may be hard for them to stay motivated the rest of the year. What’s next: Bye 5. (23) Texas State Bobcats (2-5, 2-1 Sun Belt) Change: +3 Last week: vs. Louisiana-Monroe W 24-14 Positives: This was a win Texas State really needed to keep motivation through the rest of the year. The defensive line and secondary played very well, allowing Warhawk QB Martin Johnson to throw for just 209 yards and forced two interceptions. O'Rourke and Tellez were efficient enough for their offense to put up 24 points, while only giving the ball away once. Things were really not looking good for the Bobcats to start the season, but this might be the beginning of a big turnaround for them. Negatives: The offensive line play wasn't great, posting just a 2.6 rating. RB Cesar Tellez still was only able to run for four yards a carry despite ULM having one of the lousier defenses in the league. Even with this big win for Texas State, I think their chances of winning the division or competing for a bowl game are low. They still have ULL, South Alabama, and Arkansas State left on their schedule and it'll be tough to make it through those three unscathed. What’s next: at Louisiana-Lafayette 6. (18) Georgia State Panthers (2-5, 2-2 Sun Belt) Change: +1 Last week: at Georgia Southern W 31-10 Positives: This was quite the statement game for the Panthers. They could do no wrong offensively and defensively on their way to an easy victory over their in-state rival. Georgia State raced out to a 21-3 halftime lead and never looked back. Freshman QB Zachary Mattson had a nice performance. He had 170 yards and a touchdown through the air and added 32 and a touchdown on the ground as well. This big win ties Georgia State with Troy for the lead in the East division. Negatives: Georgia State didn't really have any negatives in this one, but it's really no surprise that a team with superior talent was able to blow out a team without a coach. While this is a big win, I would pump the brakes a little bit on the Panthers. They've got five tough games remaining so there's plenty of time for something to go wrong. What's next: vs. Appalachian State 7. (17) Troy Trojans (2-6, 2-2 Sun Belt) Change: -4 Last week: vs. BYU L 10-41 Positives: This loss obviously doesn't count against them in the Sun Belt standings and that's all that really matters. The team actually played with a lot of discipline this week despite going up against a vastly superior opponent. They only committed four penalties and turned the ball over just once. Troy hosts Georgia Southern next week, who is reeling after a blowout loss to Georgia State. This is a great opportunity for Troy to stay at the top of the East division race. Negatives: It would've been nice to see Troy be a little more competitive in this one, seeing as they were starting to gain some momentum with a big win over ULL the week prior. The offense was pretty stagnant, putting together just 182 yards of offense. Jabari Sneed and the Cougar offense didn't have to try too hard to gain any yards against the Trojan defense either. They were very efficient as RB Adarius Galloway averaged over five yards a carry and Sneed throwing just ten incompletions. Fans shouldn't be too worried as this is a top 35 team they faced this week. What’s next: vs. Georgia Southern 8. (16) Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks (2-6, 2-2 Sun Belt) Change: -2 Last week: at Texas State L 14-24 Positives: Freshman receiver Peter Kolb had quite nice day posting a line of 8/85/1. On a day when nobody on the offense could do much, Kolb was a nice beam of hope. Kolb wasn't the only freshman making an impact either. On the defensive side of the ball, OLB Elliott Messer totaled 6 tackles and made a stop behind the line as well. ULM gets a bye next week to prepare for a tough South Alabama team. At least they can hope for some home-field advantage. Negatives: Man oh man this offensive line needs some help. They couldn't get any sort of movement up front against these Bobcat defensive linemen. While Martin Johnson has typically been the leading playmaker for this offense, he let them down in this one. He threw for just 209 yards and turned the ball over twice. As usual, he received no help on the ground with Tion Mays carrying the ball 9 times for just 21 yards. The Warhawks now have to win out to have any chance at a bowl and I just don't see that happening. What’s next: Bye 9. (8) Georgia Southern Eagles (1-6, 0-3 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: vs. Georgia State L 10-31 Positives: Three of the four defensive players are all underclassmen. Once these guys get some more experience, this Georgia Southern defense could terrorize the East division for years to come. Another good thing is that these awful performances shouldn't persist too much longer. After being coachless for just a week, Georgia Southern welcomed in a new, but experienced coach. Best of luck to him as he takes over the reigns for the Eagles. Negatives: Getting trounced by your in-state rival at home is obviously not ideal. The offense couldn't get anything going as RB Messiah Sheppard had just 3.5 yards per carry and QB Ian Sorensen threw two picks. The defense also had absolutely no answer for the Georgia State offense. By halftime the game had basically already been decided. If Georgia Southern has any aspirations of salvaging this season, there needs to be better performance on both sides of the ball starting at Troy next week. What’s next: at Troy 10. (7) Appalachian State Mountaineers (1-6, 1-2 Sun Belt) Change: 0 Last week: Bye Positives: Appalachian State got a bye week to prepare for Georgia State, who are coming off a huge rivalry win against Georgia Southern. Negatives: The Mountaineers are now coachless. This typically means teams perform worse, but Appalachian State already wasn't great so it'll be interesting to see how this turns out. What’s next: at Georgia State
