You can't walk into a game thinking you're going to lose. For that, I applaud Troy. They believe they can win. But claiming that some 6'2", 210 pound sophomore is going to own Darren McFadden? Boris Lee? Never heard of him. The smack talk from the Troy message boards is linked here.
I also have to give some props to the Hogvillians when props are due. The best retort was "If there was one guy who could single-handedly stop Darren, he wouldn't be playing for Troy."
