    Top 5? They might be top 2 or 3 now that FCS has lost Liberty, Texas State, Georgia Southern, App State, and ODU.

    After giving it some thought - Curt has to be 60 years old +/- 3 years. He's a great coach but why would a program bring in someone at that age?

    I might agree with you if the QB situation doesn't improve. You can't win 7 games in this division with mediocre QB play.

    I actually work for WVSU in Extension... I have a relative who works in the athletic dept as well.. so quite a bit of the stuff about pereception is from myself and many of my coworkers... I talked to my relative over Christmas break and they gave me the low down on whats happening... People are VERY excited... I am also an alum (my first year at State was 1994) and have never seen this much excitement over football...

    I just hope this coach can deliver
