Go to this link for a very fair preview article from the LU FCS beat  writer here in Lynchburg.  http://www2.newsadvance.com/sports/2011/nov/14/liberty-stony-brook-delving-numbers-ar-1458363/?referer=None&shorturl=http://bit.ly/s6rLVj

Just six days remain until kickoff on Long Island for the Big South championship game between Liberty and Stony Brook. As far as I can tell, this marks the first time that two Big South teams have been undefeated heading into the final game of the season. And one thing is for certain this time: Thereís no consolation prize involved. No one gets a share of the title this year without winning this game, and thatís great for the conference.

Whatís on the line? Obviously, a spot in the FCS playoffs. The winner gets in, the loser goes home. To reiterate, neither team will get to seven Division I wins without winning this game, so neither will be in play for an at-large berth. I know, I know. Itís a suggestion, not a requirement. Well, Iím suggesting that no FCS team has ever received an at-large bid without getting to seven DI wins, and that wonít change this year.

It's mind boggling that in the new FCS Coaches' poll, Liberty is ranked #15 and SBU is not even receiving votes.

Relax, the poll desn't come out till this afternoon.  They update the records over the weekend so it looks new but it's not.   My guess is we will be 15, 16 and you guys will be around 20-23.

And the coaches poll is nearly universally panned as a complete joke.  No one pays attention to that one.

I think a lot of those numbers are misleading. For whatever it's worth, Priore thought that Gardner Webb had the best run defense that we would see outside of Buffalo and Utep.

Looks like the stage is set.  Even the long range weather outlook  seems promising.  For what it's worth  could be  near 60 and clear Saturday afternoon. Perfect football weather!

weather looks good so far. This will be a great game. Hoping that a lot of LU fans come out and makes this more of a real championship in which both fan bases are in great numbers.

As of now, I am waiting for the Poll and wondering if there is any chance that the big south can have two ranked teams. I doubt it, but it surely would be great for the upcoming game.

TSN Poll has liberty at #16, and Stony Brook receiving 135 votes but not ranked. My hopes of having two ranked teams for the upcoming game wont happen.

What do you mean? The AnyGivenSaturday.com Poll (the only really decent one in FCS) has SBU at #25. Both teams - at least in my eyes - are ranked going into Saturday.

I though the The Sports Network poll was the most followed one. I know there is hundreds of polls and some include SBU in the top 25 but I've seen TSN used widely and they still don't have us ranked.

TSN is generally regarded as a horrible poll by those in the know, Sports Network as well. Neither police their poll as well as AnyGivenSaturday, and big FCS fans ignore the Coaches Poll completely.

In my eyes, the only true poll is AGS.

I'll take that into consideration next time I look at the polls Redwyn. I don't know much about the reliability of the Polls. Thanks for the info.

Lets spread the word on the game guys. We need everyone out there this November 19th! Seriously!

I really don't understand why Liberty is ranked so far ahead of us. Robert Morris isn't a better win than Lafayette.

Polls are primarily based on reputation.  Liberty has earned some respect in recent years and SBU is earning it right now.  I think you'll find yourselves very pleasantly surprised by how you are treated by pollsters next year if you win on Saturday.  We're paying attention and seeing that you guys deserve a ranking.  Not everyone follows the Big South as closely as we do.
