SFA is not currently losing to PrisonTech! Success.

Also, if we ever get to fielding a great team, a good argument could be made to have College Gameday come down for an FCS week like they've done a few times with other schools. The publicity would be exceptional.

I could be wrong but I think sam already scored a TD on us, and it's only Tuesday

Impossible, they don't let them out of solitary until Friday morning.

Until further notice my cynical self is calling it the "Blowout of the Piney Woods"....... LOL. I hope we come to play. At this point I would be happy if we only lose by 21 points. Unfortunately I don't have much confidence that will be the case. Ugh Ugh Ugh

As I've said before, if we won this game it would be the most college football thing ever.
I don't care if we win another game all year. If we win this game, I will be happy for the rest of the year.

I want to see improvement across the board from McNeese. I want to see the defense flying to the ball and making tackles. Missed tackles have killed us, and against them, it will lead to a blowout.

I don't want to see a high flying offense this week. I want to see a clock grinding, mistake free game, where we move the ball and convert on our opportunities. No fumbles, no turnovers, and no stupid penalties. We play a clean game and we are in the ballpark.

I do believe that SFA is physically capable of winning this game. Going back and rewatching SHSU a couple times this year, they aren't in a class of their own by any means. Obviously it's going to take some mistakes (by the other guys, not us) but it is possible to win this game.

And good lord, would it be huge. My prediction is ugly, but my gut tells me there's a reason to watch tomorrow.

Couldn't bring myself to go, instead I'll be on the golf course, but I'll still be streaming it on ESPN3.

I'm with the golfing class. I'll be hitting some small white balls Saturday. With some luck we might be respectable next year and I'll bring myself to go.

Sam has an average defense, which has been shown all season. The problem is we have a below average offense. I don't see a way we can keep up with them, they're going to score points.

I feel like the less fans that show up the more likely we are to beat Sam.
That is way all 20 fans can rush the field after the game.

Today's the big day. I've been doing everything I can to help the team.

I've helped old ladies across the street, saved orphans from burning buildings, rescued kittens, and spent all morning helping Sam Houston students write appeals to get their sentences as the university shortened. I'm adding all the good juju to SFA Football's Karma account, hopefully it's enough.

I'm going to take this another direction and mention how KC Keeler pee's sitting down...

I've been throwing KC Keeler's name in for every head coach opening around. Certainly Sam can't hit a homerun with every football hire?

I've been calling parole officers, giving them athletes names and saying they have broken curfew and house arrest rules...

KC Keeler is very popular amongst many FBS programs right now. It wouldn't be unrealistic for some team to want to take a shot with one of the most overused systems in college football.

Lots of SFA fans disguised as empty seats. Not surprised.

Extra point bounces off of both uprights and goes in. That's not a good sign for us ...

The announcer just mentioned that Blumrick shouldn't take the snap until there is about 5 second left on the play clock. are they saying that SFA needs to milk the clock already. Sigh

Probably shouldn't call designed QB runs when you're already on 2nd string QB.
