Talking Bull: Awwww Not this again!

No thanks were good for now

So App State is one of those programs that want's into FBS, personally I'm really hoping the MAC avoids going that far south.

AppStateNation | The Unofficial Appalachian State Athletics Blog " CONFERENCE REALIGNMENT: MAC Commissioner Talks Expansion
The only way the Sun Belt expands – is if they get raided by C-USA. The only way C-USA raids the Sun Belt – is if they get raided by the Big East…and the Big East is probably not going to do that.

Yea Missouri we know you're really, really eager to fit in and all but you might want to avoid calling out Georgia *before* you beat them.

This Week In Schadenfreude: Michigan Throws Itself In The Wood Chipper -
I could probably do this entire column just on Michigan after they took a 41-14 thrashing from Alabama and lost starting corner Blake Countess for the year with an ACL tear. Before we get to the Countess thing, we have to deal with something else: me.

MAC Power Rankings from "The Belt"

MAC Power Rankings: Week 1 - Hustle Belt
Suspend your top defensive player and allow 45 points to Georgia. Sure. But the offense mustered 23 points of their own. Alex Zordich looked excellent. I'm not calling them another MAC East contender yet, but might this team finally put up a high-scoring fight?
