The introduction to the gameday preview. All the info you need to get you started The teams and numbers. Giving their schedule strength, roster strength, and overall potential.

 
PRLog - Aug. 19, 2012 - EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- #121-124:
Welcome to the big leagues
#124: South Alabama
Schedule strength: 122
Roster strength: 124
Overall potential: 123

The short on the Jaguars:
South Alabama has only been playing football since 2009, and have taken slow steps to prepare itself for the leap to the FBS level. They can win, and started off its program winning 17 straight against minor programs, and have been competitive against FBS competition. Playing in the Sun Belt, a win or two, maybe more is possible.
#123: Texas-San Antonio
Schedule strength: 121
Roster strength: 123
Overall potential: 124

The short on the Roadrunners:
Playing only their second season ever, going 4-6 last year, UTSA will have a long haul of it. Head Coach Larry Coker may have big time coaching experience (Miami FL), but in the end a win may be a stretch.
#122: Massachusetts
Schedule strength: 119
Roster strength: 116
Overall potential: 120

The short on the Minutemen:
UMass has a long history at the D1AA level and has been competitive. Playing in the Mid American Conference Eastern Division and a non conference schedule of lesser FBS teams will help make their initiation to the top level not as rough as the other three schools entering the top tier this season.
#121: Texas State
Schedule strength: 120
Roster strength: 91
Overall potential: 121

The short on the Bobcats:
Dennis Franchione has been at the helm one season and had mixed results, going 6-6 last year. Texas State has a pair of Division 2 titles to its credit, back when it was known as Southwest Texas State, but this is the big leagues. The Bobcats should be able to keep games interesting, and could win a couple.
