The SunBelt Footbal Hate meter....

Error Page


On Tuesday, ESPN.com began a series on rivalries and the most-hated teams in the conference. I got through the WAC and the Mountain West and now it's time to turn attention to the other side of the country.

The Sun Belt, Conference USA and Mid-American have rivalries as fierce as anyone even though some of the rivalries of 20 years ago – or even five years ago – have disappeared because leagues have been restructured and some teams have moved to other conferences. But most rivalries are deep-rooted and the level of hatred between the teams lives on.

1. Middle Tennessee – Again, this has little to do with winning and more to do with the fact that three SBC teams call Middle Tennessee State their rival. That's a lot of teams to upset in a nine-team conference.

2. Troy – Ever since DeMarcus Ware and beating Missouri on ESPN2, Troy has been the darling of the Sun Belt and playing it up with games against the nation's best BCS teams. Too bad the Trojans haven't been able to recapture the magic.

3. Florida Atlantic – A newbie in the league, but already a Sun Belt champion and now the team to beat. The Owls have only been playing football since 2001, which makes all those storied programs look a little sad

;D ;D ;D

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

I agree.

We have been the whipping boy for many storied programs including Clemson, Florida, South Carolina, Oklahoma State, Louisville, Kansas State, and Kentucky to name a few. FAU is gaining ground, but at this point it is far too premature to make any comments about putting storied programs to shame.

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!
