I could certainly count up 21 teams better than SMU

SMU is ranked #21 completely off name recognition and being 6-0 AAC member. I will believe in them more if they beat Houston. If they are 10-0 going into Cincinnati game it would be great for the Conference if we were remaining a Conference. I guess if they are 10-0 going into that game all of us left behind should be pulling heavily for SMU.

I will say SMU has a great QB much like Coastal. I like Coastal and to their credit they beat two ranked teams last year even if one was a Sunbelt team and one was BYU on a short week quick notice game for them to fly across the country and play mid week. I think if BYU had played Coastal in a Bowl last year they beat them.
Coastal, App St and now SMU are evidence that even with a weak schedule you can get ranked. For all the complaining about AAC additions ECU certainly has an opportunity in coming years to make noise and finish a season ranked.
Depending on when teams leave and new teams arrive our OOC from 2023-2028 is set up for us to finish a season ranked if we can win 10 games
