Mississippi sportswriter says Troy is a better team than Kentucky

sm-tweet

Patrick Magee covers Southern Miss football for Biloxi’s The Sun-Herald and in his latest column he writes that Neal Brown’s Troy team is better than Mark Stoops’ team in Lexington. That’s part of his emphasis on the upcoming game between Troy and the Golden Eagles in Hattiesburg.

Magee writes, “The Troy football team that USM (2-0) hosts at 6 p.m. on Saturday is likely one of the three best opponents that will walk into Roberts Stadium this season. The other two are Marshall and Louisiana Tech.”

He also says, “USM needed Kentucky to go on and have a respectable season to prop up its strength of schedule, but that now appears unlikely. This makes the game against Troy all the more important.”

Read more, including a brief analysis of Drew Barker and the Florida game, in Magee’s Troy preview here.

As sad as it is to admit, we can’t say Magee is wrong. Troy only lost by six at No. 2 Clemson over the weekend, while Kentucky can’t seem to do anything right on either side of the ball.

I can’t believe this is even a discussion in Year 4 of the Stoops era.

    I can’t disagree. Can you imagine how badly we’d get beat AT Clemson?

      We’ll probably get a pretty good idea October 1st. Ground and Pound: Ground and Pound.

    I think it is true. UK has better players than both schools but they have better teams. Time for Neal to come home.

      Even though I like Neal a great deal he is not the answer. Best case scenario for UK is if a good coach from another conference wants to try to coach in the SEC. If not then we are back to mid major coaches or DC/OC.

      I’m confused; you want to lose your coaches and AD’s to UK?

      Yeah, I had some little pathetic troll using my name. I figured I’d let her ride it out. Happens after a loss – the retards come flowing.

      She is an idiot if she thought she was fooling anyone.

    There is no way troy is better than kentucky. It’s what’s happens every week, a power 5 confrence team does not take a lower level conference team seriously, and has no motivation to give it all they got. While the lower level team is trying their butts off, and playing like it’s their superbowl. No disrespect for troy, I respect near brown and what he’s got going there but that’s just the facts. I think that’s what happened against southern miss in the second half, kentucky thought they should win because they were the better team, then it finally occurred to Southern Miss that they weren’t going to get another chance against an sec, and they started giving it all they had. I think the loss to Florida was just a result of the demoralization we felt after week 1.
