UL quarterback Blaine Gautier


College Football Talk, recently released their Sun Belt conference predictions for the upcoming 2012 season, and the website picks Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns to finish in fourth place this year.

They pick FIU to win the league, followed by Arkansas St., WKU, and then Louisiana.

That's pretty similar to what the Sun Belt Conference coaches voted at the league's media days, but that poll had UL third, and WKU fourth.

Ben Kercheval, who actually writes the piece for College Football Talk, picks Troy to finish fifth, followed by ULM, North Texas, Middle Tennessee, FAU, and South Alabama.

Not a whole lot of surprises here. Most people, magazines, and websites, have pretty similar predictions, with most saying the four teams with the best shot of playing in the postseason being Louisiana, FIU, Arkansas St., and WKU, with Troy being one of the teams that could jump in the mix.
