    We've had easier schedules since the Bicknell days. We used to play #2, #5, and #17 in the same year. We don't see much of that anymore.

    Oh if you want to count losses to teams with losing records, yeah Skip has a few of those.

    If Skip was so great at ECU and USF, let's see if they will take him back. Here is a link to the USF board. https://www.thebullspen.com/

    Let me know how that goes.

    I don't think we scare too many of the big boys anymore. We are 1-10 under Skip against the P5. Much more of this and we are going to start becoming homecoming opponents. I mean we are a cheap opponent and a sure win.

    You are trying to change the conversation. The original conversation was "holding our own against P5 teams."

    Huh? Here is your post from earlier.

    We can hold our own against pretty good P5 teams (as has Skip), with the occasional win (like Skip), but we've only beat 1 ranked P5 team (Alabama in 1999).

    As you can plainly see you are the one who made the statement that Skip can hold his own against pretty good P5 teams. Then you start listing close games against teams with losing records, holding them up as pretty good teams. So how did I change the subject?

    You might be right, but that AAC East where ECU plays is loaded with teams from the old Big East. Not so sure your boy Skip would be very successful coaching in that conference.

    But I am sure we are both in agreement that USF wouldn't take him back, right?

Don't take my "sunshine" post as believing we will lose. No matter how bad we have been playing, I ALWAYS expect to win!

    Re: +20.5 at Miss State

    Who did this BVDV or our current deal maker? This weekend would be the "second part"? Will our beat writer be able to figure out this series and ask our AD why we got such a crappy deal?

    In 2015, Tech received $700,000 for a trip to Kansas State and $500,000 to play at Mississippi State. The lower amount to play at Mississippi State stems from an agreement that amounted to a three-game series with a game guarantee and a home-and-home series with no money exchanged. The first part of the home-and-home series comes in 2017 when Tech hosts Mississippi State on Sept. 9.

    Not in champ110's case, he's a "Partly Sunny" Pumper. The glass is always half full with him.

    Does it matter? Tech can’t beat a ‘good’ P5 team this century no matter who the coach is. He’s been able to hang with the mediocre-decent ones. He has beaten one. The one he beat has a losing record because they lost to us. Starting with the 2014 season, the only ones with losing records he has lost to are Texas Tech and Kansas State (lost to Arkansas in a bowl.) The rest are;

    2014: Auburn (8-5), Oklahoma (8-5)

    2015: MissState (9-4)

    2016: Arkansas (7-6)

    2017: SouthCar (9-4), MissState (9-4)

    2018: LSU (7-1)
