    Never say never.... but I think it's safe to say that right now, we definitely have the upper hand on the Horsies of MUTS.
    We are with you all the way! So, get out there team and FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! Let's win to-day!!!

    if the Sun Belt Conference was the Justice League, we would be Batman and Middle would be Robin...always playing second fiddle to us.

    So honest question when south gets into the conference next year will Middle Tenn still be our real rival in ten years? Especially if we keep improving facilities and wins getting a invite to C-USA during the conference shuffles.

    I think it's possible to have two rivals in that amount of time. We've beat Middle the past what, five six years?, but it'll run out eventually and they'll win and the rivalry will be reborn on both sides. If one team in a rivalry is lack luster for a few years, the rivalry grows old, but if that lack luster team beats the rival then it's like a brand new monster. I can see us being rivals with Middle, but I don't wanna give South the chance, I'd rather crush them every year and not honor them with the "rival" status

    SoBama will be a natural rival.

    MT is that little rich kid in the corner who's daddy keeps trying to buy his way into beating (Troy) the kid that works hard and does things the right way. Then when MT loses they blame APR exemptions, lower admission standards, Tony Franklin throwing the game, Dasher being rusty, and the Murfreesboro miracle curse. I wouldn't worry about moving to CUSA according to the Flying Blue Unicorn fans they will be moving up first because there are 2 million people in Nashville and MT draws .000000000000047% of those people to their games annually.

    Yeah their location is irrelevant we have just as much of the Montgomery market as they do of the Nashville market. It's always going to be Vanderbilt, Tenn, then schools like Belmont and Tenn Tech getting a share of the pie. Then not to mention Memphis draws a share of the fans also. Troy on the other hand pretty much is established in Troy, Brundige, Enterprise, Dothan, and is a skip and a jump behind Auburn and Alabama in the state capital.

    If you have access to 2 million people and triple the student body of Troy and you average less than 200 more people per game that is not an advantage. That is an epic failure.

    i don't disagree with you, i'm simply pointing out that they have the Nashville market in their radius. that is larger than the Montgomery or Dothan markets. thus they have greater market potential, doesn't mean they can capitalize on it.
