The MWC will have a chance to climb if Fresno and USU win out. Would set up for a nice Champ game. UCF still has to go through the best of the AAC . 

If UCF wins out then in my opinion they deserve to go.   

The gap between Houston and Fresno is more interesting as all the computer rankings have Fresno higher than Houston.  In many cases, Fresno is twice as high as Houston.   Essentially the same Fresno team beat essentially the same Houston team in last years bowl.

 You can tell that neither Fresno, USU, nor Houston are used to this ranking thing. The first time they get ranked this year, and it's like 5 year old kids fighting over whose father has the better job. Boise is the only ones who are used to it. They are the ones saying that we need to let it play out more.

You are underestimating Ed Oliver.  He's twice as good as last year.  He kept the Red Raiders in check.  They only got 605 passing yards...

No one is saying that fact.  We just find the massive jump interesting and those familiar with CA’s dirty underhanded politics from the UC’s suspicious.

The pollsters noticed we put up 49 points and over 500 yards on Texas Tech. Plus our perception and our conference perception far exceeds the MWC.

Texas Tech 63 

Houston 49

 

Did they see you allowed up to 63 points and over 700 yards against you?

Congratulations to Fresno State and Utah State. Both good squads that need to make the most of their position.

I have severe problems with Houston (or any AAC team) going from the top 25 fringe to 17 out of nowhere.

That's AAC championship ratings manipulation being sown for a big metropolitan area. Temple may beat them, but if they do...they may just continue on the same shell game.

Texas, South Florida and Notre Dame have no business being where they are/were. They're decorated cannon fodder at their respective level of football. SEC poll bookmarkers with fans that can afford an overpriced ticket (to their soft teams getting killed).

In Houston's case, exchanging "X" AAC paper tigers for another is one way the press and coaches undermine the MWC's teams - and reality - to the encouragement of a higher advertising TV base.

Iowa hardly moving is definitely a head scratcher.

P6 privlege. That's just the way things are.

 

If you guys would have invested in the MAC brand instead of letting Boise het all of the resources because y'all got desperate for them to stay, then maybe you could get some bias.

Privilege. And I'm glad you're aware of the BS your circumstance is breaded in.

It makes that dip into the deep fryer go that much more smoothly. In my case, I tend not to value opinions from the livestock being fattened. 

If you want real respect you still have reality to contend with. Good luck.

This is a great season for the fans of MWC and AAC. Each conference has teams that might go to the NY6 bowl. Any team might slip. We will all be nervous on every step. Competition makes it much more interesting.

"Also I was just in Texas. Both in Dallas and Houston. I saw more SMU and UT-Dallas stuff than I saw UH stuff. Nobody in Texas cares about Houston. "

The quoted statement is incorrect. Any observation of the number of alumni would show it cannot be true. UH enrollment is about 70,000 If all UH satellite schools in the Houston area are included. Yes, they are different universities but their Diplomas all have the words "University of Houston". They are only separated to allow the main campus to compete for academic rankings. A real poll indicates otherwise. See: http://austin.culturemap.com/news/sports/11-13-13-poll-aggies-beat-longhorns-popular-popularity-texas-college-sports/

Good luck to you guys until you play us.

It's pretty sad that you have to come to a MWC (not MAC) board to prop up how awesome you think your team and conference are. 

"P6" is just as much of a joke as your team was in Hawai'i last year.

Your shitty defense would get you curbstomped by Fresno, Utah State, and probably Boise for that matter.

San Francisco State puts out a lot of diplomas too. Doesn't mean people give a shit about SFSU Gator Athletics.

That's a huge lie but whatever you gotta say to make you feel better about yourself and shitty Wyo who can't even get 30k to their stadium

 

There's literally 14x more people in the Houston Metro Area than there is in the whole State of Wyoming. The State of Wyoming is also a hell of a lot bigger, land wise, than the Houston Metro Area. 

Despite the remoteness, low population density, harsh winter weather, and unforgiving roads, the Pokes still manage to bring in around 20K per game. Which is really pretty good. 

That's about UH's attendance historically. What's your excuse?

Houston will play at Boise next year. It will be a big TV draw IMO. Houston will win if we don't lose our coaches.

Hope you haven't bought your plane tickets yet.  Houston doesn't come to Boise until 2024...
