Does our non-conference record really matter?

Postby woffordgrad94 on Sat Jun 07, 2014 9:30 am

If we play a tough non-conference schedule with a lot of so-called money games our overall win-loss record will likely suffer for it no matter how good a team we think we may have this year. Would this be a problem? Or does it not matter as long as we win conference games? I personally like seeing our record be as good as possible-I would like to win over 25 games this year. So I would schedule some winnable D1 non-conference games (no Toccoa Falls, Emory & Henry, Erskine, etc. as those games get low attendance and help nobody). But I am emphasizing the wrong thing?

It would help seeding, and might increase our chances of playing in one of the alternative post-season tournaments. The SoCon announced last week that the conference would financially assist teams trying to get a home game in one of the non-NCAA post-season tournaments.
