  1. In all of FBS, besides the military academies there are only 4 schools that are not Carnegie classified as a Doctoral University. Instead these 4 are classified as Masters Universities: 3 are in the Sun Belt - Appalachian State University, Coastal Carolina University, Troy University 1 in the MWC - San Jose State University
  2. It is not surprising that it would be tough to get admitted in Engineering CS at SJSU. Sociology at SJSU is the same Eligibility Index (EI) as Physics or Mathematics or Economics at SJSU. Over 80 SJSU majors in Fall 2018 had an admissions Eligibility Index of only 2950. But a 3200 EI was Fresno State's lowest admission standard for any major in Fall 2018. Some majors are higher. http://fresnostate.edu/studentaffairs/are/documents/admissions/fall%202018%20impaction%20criteria%20ftf.pdf That means Fresno State's Sociology major has a higher admission standard than SJSU majors in Physics, Mathematics, Economics, etc. Fresno State's lowest admission requirement increased to 3400 for Fall 2019. Overall it is tougher to just be admitted to Fresno State than to SJSU (although yes SJSU does have some majors with higher admission standards than Fresno).
  3. 3 in MWC markets? The 8 who did not vote for UCF were Brett McMurphy, Jon Wilner, Michael Lev, Steve Wiseman, Dave Reardon, Sam McKewon, Ryan Aber, and Tom Bragg. Wilner is from San Jose but he still included an AAC team, he just currently believes Cincy is better than UCF. Reardon is from Honolulu and he did not vote for any G5 teams, not even Boise. If you are counting Lev as in a MWC market, he is from Tucson. There are no MWC members anywhere in Arizona. He did put Cincy at #25 and had no other G5s including voting for no MWC teams. That seems more of a snub of the MWC from a western voter. McKewon from Omaha? He also voted for no G5 teams.
  4. Fresno's first 2 opponents (USC and Minnesota) both received votes.

  8. No need for Facebook to watch games. Since Mug only said it once, I will repeat it for him as a second plug:
  9. During the DeRuyter era, the APR fell in 5 years from 956 in 2011-12 (DeRuyter arrived in Dec 2011) down to 2015-16's 916. Under Tedford the APR was 957 in 2016-17 and 965 in 2017-18.
  10. I'm noticing that with the exception of the Florida writer, these first three voters are putting MWC teams over AAC teams. The North Carolina based writer did not include a single AAC team. Of course, there are many more voters in Monday's poll. It will be interesting to see the overall comparison of the MWC and AAC in the preseason.

  14. Some of the AP Poll voters are beginnng to release their individual ballots before the pre-season poll's actual release on next Monday August 19. As one of the voters mentions, he may make some changes to what he lists here before submitting his actual ballot. But these do provide a peak at the current thoughts among some poll voters.
  15. Schedules show Oregon State and Central Arkansas also stayed at 12 games. Army is the only OOC team playing in Hawaii which took the 13th game option this year.
