The announcement that Middle Tennessee would officially join the Conference USA in 2013 was quickly followed by the release of the Blue Raiders' first C-USA home and road opponents. Combined with the out of conference games put together by athletic director Chris Massaro, 2013 has the potential to be the most exciting slate in program history.

Middle Tennessee fell victim to the college bowl system this past Sunday, discovering that they wouldn't be playing in a postseason bowl despite putting up an impressive 8-4 record. Fans, players and even media were stunned by the snub and the fallout has played itself out over the past few days.

When the 2012 season began, Middle Tennessee looked to be stacked at running back. With Benny Cunningham, Jeremiah Bryson, William Pratcher and Drayton Calhoun vying for playing time, folks didn't expect to see a whole lot of Jordan Parker. Fast forward just a few months and now fans can't wait to see what he's going to do next.

It's been six years since Rick Stockstill arrived in Murfreesboro. During his tenure, he's done almost everything you could want him to: taken the team to multiple bowl games, won a share of a league title, produce multiple All-Conference players and put together the basis of a winning program. Yup, he's done just about everything … except beat Troy. Saturday, he'll get another chance.

The Blue Raiders sit at 3-2 and 1-1 in Sun Belt play as they prepare to travel to Miami to take on Florida International this Saturday.

It was an active week in the Sun Belt conference. There were several conference games plus ANOTHER big non-conference victory for the league. While there's plenty going right for the Sun Belt in 2012, the race for the league title is about to heat up as teams get further into Sun Belt play. So that begs the question ... how do the INDIVIDUAL teams stack up when you compare them against each other?

Middle Tennessee is set for a big homecoming game this Saturday when they host the Warhawks of Louisiana-Monroe. Both teams have signature wins over BCS teams so far this season and the winner of this one could spend the rest of the season vying for a Sun Belt championship.

This time last week most Blue Raider fans were preparing themselves for the worst. Even the most die-hard optimist likely approached the Georgia Tech game with a cautiously subdued state of mind. And to be honest … who could blame them?

Early in the first quarter of last Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, the Blue Raider offense was in a do-or-die situation. They had already ended their first drive early with an interception that led to a Yellow Jacket touchdown. Now they were on shaky ground in the middle of Tech territory.

At some point, I'll write an official postgame story, but this is more of an instant reaction blog. That's more out of practicality than laziness, but at this point I'm far too pumped to truly examine this game. But then again I think most Blue Raider fans are too pumped to read a run of the mill breakdown, so … here we go.

Three games in and this team is still a mystery to me, but then again I'm not exactly alone in that. The Blue Raiders started the season with a thud, but have showed improvement in each game since. Unfortunately, those wins came against two of the worst teams in the FBS, so it's hard to say exactly what to look for the rest of the season. I'm still gonna give it a try though.

This isn't your father's Sun Belt. The league has played admirably thus far on the young season, as evidenced by accolades being lumped on the conference from various national publications. With that in mind, BRZ's own Kurt Mullen has taken it upon himself to rank the entire league team-by-team from top to bottom. Keep reading for more.
