East Tennessee St squeaked by Mercer. They have lived on the edge successfully all season. Samford plays them in the last week of the season. Right now there are 4 teams that can tie with 2 losses, I believe.

We'll be lucky if we make the playoffs with the paper mache schedule we have and our lack of quality wins.

ETSU is about the only "quality" win we have.

If ETSU beats Samford, we will finish 4th in the conference standings (assuming Samford wins out, we win out and Furman wins out).

We will be the fourth place team in the Socon. We will not make the playoffs.

There is no tiebreaker for second place. Neither FU or Samford has an OOC D-I win.

IF ETSU beats Samford (I doubt they will), then Samford would finish the season 6-5 with only 5 D-I wins. The Bulldogs need to win the autobid to make it in.
As I pointed out in the playoff thread, our resume may be weak, but it's the best of the contenders. FU and Sammy played tough teams and lost.

Our close loss at D1 Wyo should be worth something.

Wyoming has turned out to be a very poor team, and in retrospect we probably should beat them. We have been rated higer than Wyoming in the RPI.

They are 4-6, having won their last two, and several of their losses have been close, including to top 20 FBS teams.

Wyoming is not a great team, but they could be much worse.

We didn't think we would get help on Sammy from Citadel and we aren't they are off to a big start againt the bellhops. No upsets so far. Mercer and Chatty tied at the half with no score, which is a little different.

If El CID holds on to beat Samford and we lose. SoCon will be a 1 bid league. Book it.

Citadel wins. I have negative thoughts of Wade Lang.

OK, here's how I was feeling before the kickoff today. I thought one of the Socon games would be an upset. However, at kickoff it was like playing poker. When you look around the table and can't find the fish it probably is you! It was looking like we were the upset at kickoff. Then, somehow, someway, The Citadel comes back and stonewalls the team that tore us apart last week and then runs over them like a bulldozer! Suddenly we have found the fish and it's not us!!! Some mathematician is going to have to figure out the scenario for the auto bid, but unless ETSU hammers Samford we might be the highest seed out of the conference. I have not checked the FCS scores, but I know E-Loan got hammered again. In the southern region Kennesaw St is the biggie, but they play NO ONE in their conference. I don't know how good we are-it fluctuates between pretty good and terrible.

In the "one more thing" category; Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think Wofford has received even one Player of the Week in the SoCon in any category this season. For the highest ranked team in the league that seems to be pretty ridiculous. We may play more as a team than any other, but we have some pretty good players on the field doing well at what they do.
