In fairness that was the cry of the Independence Era

Wasn't 1985 or 1986 we had the slogan "We are going after the Best " ? I remember it was complete with some of the guys from the old Miller Lite commercials . That ad played before every movie in the old Pitt theaters and also at the old movie theater over by Carolina East Mall.
It was a cool time. My first game ever was Miami who went on to win the National Championship. We played Auburn, Penn St and we also played WVU the year they went and played for the National Championship. We mostly got our ass handed to us but we were trying to grow a Football program.
I don't think anybody would be excited to play the Ragin Cajuns but yes they are good this year and from time to time they have a good season. They moved to FBS in 1978 and are 6-2 in Bowl games including a 2012 win over ECU in the New Orleans Bowl. They have never finished a season ranked. I have been to their stadium. Nice little place 41k capacity which is perfect for them since they rarely fill it. They are a lifetime sub .500 program but have been a nice little run winning the Sunbelt three times since joining including last year so no real upset against App St. Sunbelt is stronger than CUSA right now with Ragin Cajuns, App St and of course #15 Coastal Carolina. Problem for them is still their perception and they have enough talent in the league where it is harder to run through it undefeated. App St beats Coastal they drop from #15 to maybe barely in the Top 25. For Coastal to make the NY6 Access Bowl they would need Cincinnati to lose 2 games probably. I am guessing Bill Napier could be moving up if the Ragin Cajuns finish this year strong again but if not he is on the short list for open positions and should be on ours if things don't work out with MH
