10-1!

Hemi is a Troy fan. Just a FYI.

Pretty decent too.

Could get ugly around here and thier forum during game week. They (although not all to be fair) are pretty much mocking FAU's pre season talk. I cant really argue, are team has NOT walked the walk. Some are taking it further then others, which I am attributing to Sour Grapes over last year. I wouldnt blame them if the roles had been reversed I would be pretty cranky at Troy if they upset our Bowl bid.

In short all of our big preseason talk is resulting in a pretty big crap sandwhich right now, which we all need to take a bite off.

Minn was a terrible game, I saw NO positive improvement or reasons to have hope like I did in the other 3 games.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

This is exaclty why i spend ZERO TIME on other team's message boards.  Not one split second.

Waste of time…

Naw,

Most of the belt boards are pretty good actually. You always have your idiot @$$hat posters but for the most part they are interested in talking football and other things. Ive had some great pure football discussions on the TROY board while fending off the above mentioned @$$'s.

Game week tends to be a lil different. I'm not sure why but the Troy board does get REAL fiesty game week. The MTSU guys and them were going pretty hot and heavy, but at the end of the game everyones back to being football fans. Ill be reading the board over there for thier game week but unless we CRUSH MTSU (which I dont see happening) you wont see any smack from me over there.

I like other boards, gives you a perspective on your team that sometimes the Koolaid masks.

Thanks Owl Family for clearing that up. I have no beef personally with you guys. If you will look back I came back and gave you congrats after beating us at home. (Had to eat a little crow also)  I think you guys are dealing with the hunted instead of the hunter syndrome. It has bitten us all before at one time or another.

We have some people on our board that take shots at some people that are totally unwarranted. I sure you know who I am talking about.  I don't know him personally, but I don't see a problem with most of his post. We all know where his first loyalty is. I do like some good smack talk. As long as it's in fun and not a personal attack.  It has been really rowdy this week with the Oklahoma St fans. They are not happy at all about last year.  Just for the record I was pulling for you in those OOC games and actually picked you to cover against Texas.

I am coming down for the game in a couple of weeks maybe I can meet some of you guys and we can laugh about what goes on with some of the messageboards.  Good luck against MTSU.

Go Troy Go

I warned many of the posters on this board over the summer of setting the bar so high the team cannot possibly reach it. Did I expect anyone to listen? Sort of, but the fact is you hadn't been there. We had. When we won the Sunbelt in 2006, we talked the 12-0 talk, we talked the beating arkansas talk, and all the hype. We did pretty well, but the football team didn't live up to what we had dreamed it would be. When I saw you guys making all those claims over the summer, I felt somewhat like "big brother." You guys did NOTHING WRONG hyping your team. It was simply inexperience as a fan base, that we, Trojan fans had felt the year before.

Hey look, pre-season is all about expecting the best from your team in the upcoming season. Your telling me this offseason you weren't thinking about taking out a couple of BCS schools on the way to winning the SBC?! If you didn't, they I can't consider you a real fan. All fans do it. When it hot during the summertime, everyone drinks the Kool-aid…..
