I wont do the trip. not many will. I am a big fan. But making the trip down there will be exhausting. The end of the semester is coming and I have to remain focused. Still, I will set up a viewing in my Building's Lounge so that those interested can watch! Go BROOK

I'd expect it to be mostly players family. We do have a couple players from Texas so hopefully those guys can bring a crowd, but in general I don't think there's going to be very many there. What do expect attendance to be?

Well, attendance is a touchy subject around SHSU. The actual attendance number seems to be far more than what's published. So if I had to guess, I would say around 7500-8500 fans, not including SBU fans. It's hard to tell with the semester coming to a close. Hopefully SHSU fans will turn out, especially since this game will be the poster child for smash mouth football.

I'm trying to stay positive. We took Utep to overtime. I have to think Utep attracts better talent than Sam Houston. Sam Houston will throw different looks at us, but I don't think they are head and shoulders more talented than we are. With a good gameplan and good execution, I think we could pull out the upset.

Me too. We need to play better than last we did on saturday, but this team has the talent and the coaching.

Well. I originally though that we were going to be abused... But hopefully it turns out to be the total opposite. SBU should go down there and compete and try to win. It is the #1 seed which still hasn't lost a game. We can be their first loss. I'll be positive about it!

Go Brook

To be honest I think SHSU is overrated. They haven't really beaten anyone.

I think they are good- based alone on the fact that no one has beaten them, they are #1, etc. 

SHSU beat New Mexico (FBS), and crushed Central Ark (top 25 FCS).  And crushed everyone else.  SB lost to Brown (though close), Buffalo (though FBS, awful game), and UTEP (though a respectable showing).

They are in an arguably tougher conference.  Thats gotta go for something, week in and out.

My only prediction is to take the over!  Whats that you think, like 80?  90?
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

I don't disagree that they're good. You have to be to go 11-0. Yes they beat New Mexico in OT. New Mexico is 1-10. Yes they have a better league, but not that much better. You guys can beat them.

Everybody who follows SHSU/FCS football closely knows we got one hella tough game come Saturday. Yes our SOS is weak, but that's out of the players hands. They more than made up for it with the scoring margin. Also, I know UNM lobos are a weak FBS squad, but we still hung 48 points on THEIR field during THEIR homecoming. IMO that is impressive and negates any overrated comments.

Pulled this off katfans.com
"The Kats are 10.5 point favorites over SBU and the over/under is 63.5."
