So do we root for Troy?

Do we root for Troy to do well since they are representing the belt? OR... do we say eff them I hope they lose!?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Much as it pains me, because Ive grown tired of thier arrogance, we definately want Troy to do well and win the NOBowl.

It will only help the belt and whether we like it or not thats were we are for a while.

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

Family connection or not I really dont care if they win or lose. Check out their board. They aren't happy we're going bowling! Especially after we went last year and they sat at home being 8-4. Oh well! We have Howard!

GO OWLS!!!!!!!!

I hope they crush Southern Miss...In fact I hope the C-USA gets crushed so their bowls will think twice about renegotiating with them.

Re: So do we root for Troy?

I just read over their board and it pains me to say this but we have to pull for Troy.  They are the SB Champs and the most solid team (for now) in this conference.  It would hurt the Belt for our Champ to lose to a mediocre Southern Miss.

That being said I feel that this is will become the rivalry game in the conference over the next few years.

GO OWLS!

Honestly, I want the conference to do well and I won't be upset if they win the game….but I won't be rooting for them. I have nothing but respect for the job that their coach does and they obviously have created a very strong program….however, their fans are arrogant and they instantly dismiss any success our program achieves….at least those on their message board. I know that is not representative of Troy fans everywhere (BMarkey seems like a great guy), but I can only comment on the evidence at hand. So GO OWLS and good luck to Troy.

You are absolutely correct BUT we have to look at the big picture.  It's not about Troy, it's about FAU and the Sunbelt.  The more success for our conference the better off we are.  We need to suck it up and pull for Troy.

GO OWLS!

OF course you pull for Troy.

No one on gotroytrojans.com are "mad" because FAU is going to a bowl game.  There is no "arrogance" against FAU.  I started that thread because you guys were the first Belt team I saw with an invite.  What we are questioning is "why" La-La and stAte didn't get a bid. That the "plan" layed out by Wright Waters was "smoke and mirrors" and just wasn't true (at least in the way it was presented to the press, fans, athletes, schools, etc).

I love a good rivilary, but I don't think anyone on the Troy Board is disrespecting FAU, just curious as to how you got a bid and others did not.  I don't think you are any more deserving to go than La-La or stAte and vice versa.  All three (well 4 if you include MTSU) were eligible and how in the world did FAU get a bid to Motor City and the others left out? This is a bowl that WASN'T EVEN considered by the Sun Belt and WWaters, yet showed up today.

Good for you all, for FAU, I hope you represent yourselves in Detriot and bring a boat load of fans, although I don't see it happening.  The die hards will go, but to leave S. Florida and go to Detriot in late Dec?  Probably isn't going to happen.  Now, send you folks to Birmingham or St. Pete, which makes much more sense, then I think you would represent well.

DMarkey, I know your family ties to Troy, know him really well.  In fact have helped him out SEVERAL times with rooms, tickets, etc., and I think his passion is mistaken on the Troy board at times, but that same passion is what others (not me) mistaken as an allegence to FAU over Troy and that simply is not true, unfortunately others don't see it that way.

I will be pulling for FAU and hoping you bring home victory and hopefully some respect by the pontificators to the Sun Belt and it's football programs.
