    Re: A sleeping giant is finally waking up

    Just to further the NY6 talk...

    It is unlikely any G5 team will finish 12-0, like UCF did the past two years, or 13-0 as they won their conference title game, so it will be a 12-1 G5 team, at best. I can see Appy State being in that conversation, at 12-1, with their only loss @ South Carolina. SMU too, with one regular season loss, probably either @ Memphis or @ Navy, but beating a ranked Cincy to finish 12-1. Or, flip it, and an 11-1 Cincy beating SMU to go 12-1. But then! one-loss Boazy and San Diego State figure in the picture too.

    The point is...you don't see CUSA or The MAC in this conversation. If either Tech or UAB run the table to finish 12-1, we won't be close enough in the rankings to factor in. By then, a one-loss Tech could be ranked 20th-ish. But one loss teams already mentioned will be 7-9 places higher.

    You are probably correct.

    Lot's of things can happen between now and Thanksgiving including us losing one or two times. Since Holtz showed yesterday that he is willing to play the game during the regular season I'm hoping we be move up quicker than you anticipate. IMO, we need to be in or very near the Top25 after the UNT game. If we can do that before traveling we could be as high as 15 before the conference championship. That may not be good enough, but if the timing of losses for the teams you mention above works out you never know.

    It's fun to think about. First time since 2015 we've been able to discuss this.

    Did the giant go back to sleep? They don't seem to be posting any more. I will be rooting for them to knock off ULL later in the year though. Good luck to the Warhawks.

    This entire thread is a riot! I can't believe that delusional NLU fan
    (didn't realize they still had any) started this comedy with a USL guy/gal adding their little two bits. We are still their daddy big time.

    The sleeping giant missed the first step on the bean stalk it seems.

    I WAS NOT there but this gigapixel crowd photo promotion at nlulm was a beautiful event as I read about it.
    At some break in the game...I’d say 2nd quarter giving everyone time to get to their seats... they set up this fancy smancy camera at the center of the field to shoot a 360-view of the stadium. A high resolution photo results so people can zoom in on Facebook and tag themselves.
    So, in the announcement prior to the photo session they announce how to tag yourself at the following website....
    Well, when the pic is shot half the people are waving hands, etc. to stand out in the photo while many others are still looking at their phones trying figure out the app.
    One poster today on why his group looked weird in the photo: “They were announcing how to tag yourself as the camera went around the entire field LOL!”

    You gotta love a well planned promotion.

    They do need to play like a giant or at least "Little Giants" and beat USL.

    I saw one of the giants fake an injury after a play. Close the drama department at ULM cause they suck at acting.

    Mel, we are all pulling for the sleeping giants to win against your rival ULL. Maybe next year y’all will actually wake up
