    I’ll be there. Was there in ‘15 as well. Honestly a nice stadium. Just being lower bowl there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Started selling beer this year too. Supposed to be sunny and 60s.

    I honestly love playing Charlotte. I know they don’t help the conference any but I have family there and being opposite of Huntington every year I’m no more than 2.5 hours away from seeing MT play every single year.

    We got 4 tickets, 4 meal vouchers, and a parking pass for $64 with a promo they were running. Sitting in section right next to MT. Top row so we can lean against the concrete wall.

    Charlotte just beat UNT so I bet they will be playing with a lot of confidence. However, I think we have more given our beatdown of FIU. I feel good about this one... hope we don't let our momentum slip away!

    To be honest, I think if MT didn't get the first possession of the second half to score to go ahead when the monsoon hit in the third quarter, that game outcome might have different. FIU had scored late to go ahead in the first half. If they had had the first possession of the second half, I think the whole complexion of the game changes, especially if they score to extend the lead. Playing from ahead for MT in that downpour was huge.

    The win over fiu was great, but I don't think we can take all that much from it, at this point.

    WKU will convince me this was not an anomaly.
    LaTech, So. Miss and UAB are the real contenders in CUSA.

    MT should be favorites with rice and odu, it would be nice to roll off of I-65 into BG 6-5 and not feeling the pressure/question of bowl eligibility. But a loss to wku would mean being 1-4 the last five years against the toppers and just magnify the problem surrounding this coach and program.

    I think MT can beat all four left on the schedule and they really need to do it and get a bowl win as well.

    Not to get ahead of the Charlotte game. Charlotte coach is a sharp, young, aggressive coach and Stock is, well, Stock. Healy is making inroads for Charlotte and picking FBS recruits out of the midstate. Stock needs to win this game for multiple reasons, one of the foremost reasons is recruiting and owning the W & Ls against Healy and stopping the recruiting success in the midstate of that young coach.

    I’m also tempted to make that drive to BG but the last time I did, it was 52-14 at halftime and Stock was standing by himself pouting at the far end of the bench away from our Visitors section. I didn’t go back in 2017.

    For some reason, I have this recurring bad mental image of Stock or West going head to head with Healy in a recruit’s living room.

    So far, we play like crap on the road. I can easily see us dropping this one. It will really come down to how well we limit Renoylds and LeMay. Their D is whatever. If we can run a bit, the field will open up. It will be another even matchup. If we win it, we can win out. Charlotte is hit and miss. They could come into this game not as focused after gutting out a big win for them. Who knows? It's about how bad we want it. What sucks is that we were a blocked punt from being 4-4 and still deep in the east race. arrrrrgh.

    FIU lost 4 fumbles. MT lost 0.

    When teams are fairly equal, winning the turnover battle typically wins the game.

    The fact that we had no fumbles in a monsoon is pretty astonishing to me. Those fumbles were definitely forced too. To be honest, they were not prepared for the rain and we were. We practiced in the rain the day before and they must not have. We were just ready for the rain. It felt like we had a run package designed for the weather when it came. FIU kept trying to pass in a car wash. It wouldn't have mattered who had the ball first. FIU was not ready for the water.

    excerpt:

    ...Middle Tennessee finally stopped their losing skid at 2 games by picking up a win over Florida International. However, the Blue Raiders did not just win the game the Blue Raiders blew the doors off of the Panthers 50-17. The win allowed the Blue Raiders to bring their record to a 3-5 overall and 2-2 in conference play.

    This season the Blue Raiders offense has ended up scoring at a clip of 25.5 points a game. The offense has thrown the ball for 227 yards a game and run the ball for 180 yards a game. The defense for the Blue Raiders is giving up 30.8 points per game. The Middle Tennessee team has given up 269 yards a game in the air and 205 yards a game on the ground.

    Charlotte is heading in the game here after picking up a 1 point victory over North Texas. The win was a challenge for the 49ers, but it still counted as a win. The 49ers win did bring them to a 3-6 record overall. However, the 49ers did pick up their first win in conference play to give them a 1-3 record in the conference.

    The 49ers on the year have been able to score at a clip of 31.9 points a game. The 49ers have ended up getting a passing game for 209 yards a game, but the rushing offense has been able to get 206 yards a game. The 49ers defense has given up 39.3 points a game on the year. With the passing defense the team has given up 221 yards a game in the air and allowed 200 yards a game on the ground.

    The 49ers are playing decent and proved the 49ers can win the games that are close. The problem is the Blue Raiders are a team that has been able to improve gradually and had a decent outing in the last game against Florida International. Look for the 49ers, though, to play better in the game and bring home a strong win. Final Score Prediction, Charlotte 49ers win and cover 35-28.....

    that is because Stock continues to go after undersized players nobody else wants them pack muscle n to them over time. This puts more stress on their joints and then they are hurt.

    Boots always took LB's, put weight on them, and moved them to DL.

    Heck, Calico was an outside linebacker as a freshman before McCollum moved him to WR. Calico might have had more success if he had stayed on defense.

    Maybe it's guys who have minor injuries (not season ending) or perhaps these are guys who might get a medical redshirt.

    That is what you sometimes need to do to get players that have the ability at this level. Getting them on the right diet and weightlifting program is easier than giving them the ability to play. We had a D-lineman come in at 240 and left at over 300 lbs. and a 5th round draft pick on his graduation day a few years back. His name I cannot remember although I should.

    Also a good DE for us is a good 3-4 OLB for the NFL.

    It’s tiny. I was shocked the first time I saw it when visiting Charlotte. There are high school stadiums in Texas that are bigger.
