Polls mean nothing if we don't handle business this weekend. The attention is nice, and it's been a while since we've received it, but the proof will be in the pudding. I was once on the ranking bandwagon, but the humble pie from the last few years modified my way of thinking.

This isnt the last few years........And that is exactly what we are going to do this weekend. TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS against a Top 10 opponent.

Our offense, especially the OL, needs to come out on a mission. Stay strong, stay fresh.No penalties.

We need a statement win to break the top 25. If it doesn't happen this week, it may be too late if we beat Chatty.

Also that loss against Samford is looking better and better considering they beat Central Arkansas...a team that is 5-1 including a victory over and FBS team. Their air raid offense is for real, and personally I think they're better than any Elon team that played in this conference back when the air raid was their staple.

The Socon is for real but we absolutely need to beat Chatt/Citadel and everyone else on the schedule or we will be left out. Last year a 6-5 MVFC team was allowed into the playoffs, so arguably the 7 D1 wins barrier isn't as rigid as it used to be (translation: 2002/2004 Wofford teams would have gotten in in the current format.

The problem is, we won't have had any quality wins at 7-4 with losses to Samford, Citadel, and Chatt. Just "tough showings." Our strength of schedule means nothing if we don't have any quality W's (though if we're sitting at 6-4 going into VMI we better play our @$$es off because ya never know). There would be no "statement game" to lift us off the bubble.

So, I have to reiterate how important this game is. I would put our playoff probability right now at about 40%. If we win, I'd say it's 70% (going up 10% with every win hereafter, and dropping 30% for every non-Chatt loss).

Beyond the playoff stakes, the fact that it's homecoming and perhaps the third top 10 team to come into Gibbs in 10 years (App 2007, GSU 2011), this is an absolutely huge game. Calling it the game of the season is an understatement. Are we "back" or not? I'm inclined to say we are so long as we play respectable but outside of my homer bias, there's just nothing special about a 4-3 team (even though we could win 4 straight and make the playoffs still)

Attention is nice and I suppose the rankings help post season rankings if you are involved, but I have never heard a coach or player say they were playing for a ranking. They play for championships, and for Wofford, there is no championship without a win over The Citadel. The Terriers must avoid mistakes and force the game to be played on Wofford's terms. If the game is within a touchdown at the end and we get the ball, I like our chances.

To be honest, first game I have been REALLY excited about in way too long. Really looking forward to a great tailgate, nice fall weather, and seeing some great SOCON football. Should have a big crowd for homecoming. Playoff-like atmosphere. Go Terriers.
