Buffalo is getting killed by Ohio on national TV right now. 37-10. Yikes. They should still win their division and play for the conference title, but this doesn't look good at all. They were receiving top 25 votes.

Some scores from around the country:

Alabama 10 Citadel 10 at the half

Maine 14 Elon 10 at the half, we need Elon to win in order to claim a share of the CAA title with a victory at Albany today

Villanova 21 Delaware 7 at the half. Delaware choking big time against probably their biggest rival for the second year in a row. They could be in regardless of what happens, though last year they missed the post-season after losing this game. Would take some of the luster off of our signature win this season.

Army 14 Colgate 0 at the half, Colgate still probably gets a seed even with a loss, though not a high one, they're likely second round opponent for us.

Towson vs JMU kicks off shortly. Not sure a seed is even possible for SBU anymore barring total chaos, but even then I still don't know what the preferred outcome for this game should be. A JMU win makes our loss to them look better, a Towson win makes our blowout loss to them not look so bad. I'd rather have the ladder. Winner of this game gets a seed even with a Maine victory. Maine got lucky with the CAA schedule this year missing us, JMU, and Delaware.

Maine has two kick returns of 93 and 95 yards for TDs.

Elon trailing by a point 26-27 with 4 minutes left in the game. They have all three time outs and just kicked the ball off to Maine again. It's not over. I wouldn't say things are great, but it's not over.


EDIT: Maine fumbles the snap on a third and five. Will kick the ball back to Elon with ~3 minutes left. Elon has all of their timeouts left I believe.

Maine hangs on to win 27-26. Elon falls to 6-4 and is probably out of the playoffs.

Villanova is up by 3TDs on Delaware right now with 2 minutes to go. That one is all but over. UD will now be firmly on the playoff bubble.

JMU is leading Towson 24-10 at the half.


All we can do now is obliterate the puppy dogs.

Not SBU related, but watch the highlights of the LSU vs Texas A&M game. Or just watch the final two minutes and the overtime periods if you're seeing this and haven't had the result spoiled yet. That's a game that will be on ESPN classic in 20 years. Lucky I was able to witness it.

Earlier today I put a post and it looks like it was blocked so I will reword and hopefully it will not be blocked this time

I'm probably one of the few people who thinks Coach P is dong a good job and glad he will be here for the next 4 years. The question that I want to know from everyone who bashes him and the AD for extending him is will any of you come in February when SBU has their signing day event and ask Coach P and Sean the tough questions about recruiting and how this team is being run because from all the posts I have read everyone has an opinion so that would the time to address those burning questions.

Camp, I have in the past. Do you honestly believe for one second, coach P cares what fans have to say? Trust me he doesn't.
Fans all over the country on every forum discuss,  argue,  complain,  agree about their team they are passionate about.  But for fans to go face to face with a HC is not appropriate and is wrong. It could actually get ugly.. I don't recommend it.

Buffalo loses the MAC Championship game to Northern Illinois 30-29. They had a 29-10 lead late in the third quarter.

If you didn't know any better, you'd think it was Coach P there on the sidelines for Buffalo lol  ;D ;D. In all seriousness that's a rough way for them to go out. This is still their best season in program history, but as we all know, it's awful to be one game away from winning the conference just to have victory snatched away from you in heartbreaking fashion. We know that feeling all too well.

I seriously doubt anyone would remove Campi post. He is and always was a true gentleman. Must be a computer thing.

Watching the JSU/Maine football game. Ferguson, Maine QB is the real deal. He has a rocket arm and very accurate. If SB can find someone close to his caliber,  then they would be scary.
Maine smoking JSU in the first half, so far..

Their defense has been lights out all year and they had an FBS win over WKU. Definitely the most underrated team in the CAA and probably the FCS this entire season. This is what we could be if we had a QB.

Maine beats Jacksonville State 55-27. Maine will advance to play the winner of SEMO vs Weber State.

JMU loses to Colgate on a last second field goal 23-20. Congrats to the Raiders. They'll play at NDSU next weekend barring a collapse by the Bison.

It would be fairly easy to chalk the loss up to the distractions surrounding Coach Houston, though JMU's QB threw 5 interceptions, so the fact that it was even close is a testament to JMU's defense. Coach Houston is certainly out the door and will not return next year as he's now rumored to ECU.

And to those who criticize us for being critical of Coach P, just take a gander at the comments JMU fans are saying about their national championship winning coach:
