Unfortunately the (the swac) hasn't allowed it to go up on their swac digital network. They had it going live so I'm sure it's stored there. Incompetence I'm sure.
lol it's all good, I don't really care to be honest. all hype talk, i wanna see results.

West:
1) TSU - I'm biased of course but we have an amazing coach and I think he has some tricks up his sleeve. D. Griffin is the best wide receiver in the SWAC, I THINK I like the quarterback prospects, and the coaching staff resumes are pretty impressive.
2) Prairie View A&M - I think the excitement around their new stadium will bring the best out of them and plus they are a well-coached team. But also all that excitement can turn out to be a major distraction ... we'll see.
3) Grambling State - Quality team and coach. They'll definitely land in one of the top 3 spots in the West.
4) SU - They're not in contention for the SWAC Championship so the players are not as motivated to play in my opinion. Down year for them.
5) UAPB - Just they've been irrelevant for most of their existence in the SWAC, shit ain't gone change this year.

East:
1) Jackson State - I feel like they're ready for a comeback. Plus I would love to play them the most in the SCG. JSU fans travel well, are fun and passionate which makes it all the better when we beat them in the Championship game. If JSU beat Tennessee State in the Southern Heritage Classic, they will be #1 in the East.
2) Alcorn - They're not a disciplined team, just very talented. I think the success has gone to their head which means it is down hill from here
3) Alabama St - They have a good number of FBS transfers and recruits but just been plagued with inconsistencies.
4) AAMU - Don't know much about them but I doubt they will be above .500
5) MVSU - They don't have the resources to be competitive in the SWAC for football
