Leaving the Big South was always going to be a positive move. It was a football only move and made all the sense in the world. Even now the Big South has two teams that could finish 10-1 overall, but still not get a seed and be ranked behind us because of the weakness of that league. It's also actually weaker now than when we were there. Us, Coastal, and VMI are all gone, and Liberty is gone after this season.

The Coaches poll has been a farce this year, but even they have us at 15. STATS has us at 12 which is more accurate. Win out, and I think the selection committee will look favorably upon us. The only threats to us from a seeing perspective are Southern Utah and Elon (if they beat JMU). South Dakota is certain to lose one of the next two at least, and WIU has three losses. We're looking good guys. Just take care of business. A conference title is still a possibility too, but needs serious chaos.
