Okay, I went back and crunched the numbers, and here’s the deal: My initial reading of the stats in the ’06 Wofford Game Notes led me to believe that the college’s SID computed the conference’s top winning percentage based strictly on conference games, but the figures just didn’t add up. As Eyes of Old Main suggested might be the case, the SID tallied overall records to come up with the SoCon’s winningest team. Here’s the breakdown based on overall records from 2002-06. Wofford is actually the SoCon’s second winningest team over that period. Still not too bad. Sorry about the confusion everyone.

From 2002-06 W L Pct
App. St. 44 17 .721
Wofford 42 17 .712
Furman 43 19 .694
Ga. Southern 38 22 .633
