Good God the disrespect for WKU is amazing


Recommended Posts

I understand the people that are upset with the timing of the Bowl Game. I am not sure I am going to be able to make it 2:30pm on a Monday before Christmas is hard.

 

That being said the disrespect for our opponent in the game is ridiculous. People are pissed because we didn't get a major conference 6 win team. Many people expect a blow out.  Some of our fans must think we are the new Alabama or something.

WKU is a good football team, and I expect a close game. They are a 10 win team with losses to LSU (by 28) and Indiana (by 2) I know Indiana is 6-6 but that is a **** good team, with 1 possession losses to Ohio State, Iowa, and Michigian.

The Seniors on the WKU team were all recruited by Taggs and they will be ready to play. A win for USF here is a Quality win, and to be honest possibly the most win of our season.

Go Bulls, Beat WKU.

You don't understand, it's not about the team but the conference they come from. Funbelt teams no matter who they beat or what their record is will always be viewed as inferior. Also, the WKU brand isn't helping them any. But people expect us to win because we are the bigger dog from a bigger conference. We do seem to forget that this isn't the NFL, but we've been hot so people are pretty pumped. Can you really blame them?

Why are they ranked #25 AND favored if we're the big dog? Why are we, the AAC, NOT favored in any game?

They are a decent team, but I think that most people on here look past them because of their conference affiliation and lack of reputation. WKU strikes fear in the heart of no fan around. I think Taggart will have our boys prepared. He knows their team and personnel well, so we have some reasons to be optimistic.

They are no longer in the Sun Belt.

I'm worried that flsportsfan83 is the voice of reason and sanity. 

However, he's right. We're playing an 11 win team with a senior QB that completed 71.8% of his passes, almost 4,600 yards with 45 touchdowns to only 7 interceptions. Are we better athletically? IMO, yes. However, they execute at a high level on offense. Probably the most efficient team offensively we've faced this year outside of Navy.

Because our entire conference is facing conference champions, a ton of teams that are or were ranked at some point during the year, and P5 opponents. The opponent lineup is strong, but so are we. 

Let's look at the opponent line up. Ten win WKU (CUSA champs), nine win Marshall (runner up in their division), P5 Virginia Tech playing to give Frank Beamer one more win, 8-4 P5 Pittsburgh, P5 Auburn, 10 win MWC champ San Diego State, P5 Auburn, and 9th ranked FSU. Is it any wonder not a single team is favored? Yet we have an opportunity to show we're better top to bottom then any conference in the G5.
