Probably a bit too low. I am thinking of moving him up to 6th.

I thought he looked great last year. I could see Houston doing much better than people expect.

I think Rob Calabrese will have a great year. He had flashes of brilliance last year (the first half of Marshall), but that entire offense was dysfunctional. Knocking Salem out of the OC position should help Calabrese.

You have to like UCF's receiving corps this year.

Conference LOL, you mean?

Fletcher got into some trouble. Not exactly sure what his status is right now.

I agree with what Brent said - I'd put Case Keenum much higher. That's just me though.

Case Keenum is undoubtedly the best quarterback in that conference. That's not saying much, but rating him so low makes me question how much you've watched of him or the rest of the conference.

Also, Vittatoe has the number two spot locked up. His completion percentage wasn't too great, but it's on par with the rest of the conference, and he outperforms everyone else in any other category.

Patrick Pinkney graduated. His backup, Rob Kass, should be on the list somewhere, although not too high. He's got potential.

How is Joe Webb number three? I know it's the C-USA, but a 5:8 TD/INT ratio should not get you number three on any list.

actually, Pinkney got another year of eligibility.

I was thinking the same thing. I've seen only a little bit of Houston play, like 2 or 3 games, but I like Keenum. Honestly, I haven't seen much of the others, but I think he'd be at least above some of them, even at 6.

I thought Chase Clement was probably the best in the conference (starter at Rice) but I think Keenum has the better NFL chance, obviously.

Case Keenum should be #1 in my opinion.

Watch out for Tulsa newcomer QB GJ Kinne.

UH RB Bryce Beal is also pretty good.

I have updated the rankings to try and reflect the opinion of the posters who have replies.

I heard Fletcher got into some trouble too, what did he do? He is a stud of a college running back, thats for sure. Southern has had some pretty good talent coming through that program lately if you think about Michael Boley, DeAndre Brown, Shawn Nelson, Gerald McRath, Damian Fletcher, and of course Adailus Thomas and Favre but they're older. They are starting to get some serious recruiting pull in Mississippi, they will be a very good mid-major team in the near future.

I guess Fletcher is currently suspended from the team, awaiting Coach Fedora to reinstate him. From this article I get the idea that he will be reinstated before the fall.

It's very close, IMO. 1a and 1b, practically

Sucks that Fletcher's terrible character is gonna hurt his stock in landing a job in the NFL. So much talent.
