We need Maine to make it as far as possible so that it doesn't look so bad for the conference. If they make it to Frisco, all the talk about the league being overrated will end overnight. Of all the CAA playoff teams, they were the lowest ranked one by the computers despite being the conference champion.

JMU losing to Colgate had a whole lot to do with the Mike Houston rumors during the week leading up to the game. I don't believe he prepared the team all that well, and by some of the playcalling decisions he made late in that game, you could tell he wanted them to lose so he could move on to ECU. The only really ugly loss was Towson losing by two scores at home to Duquense. That just shouldn't happen and was a real black mark for the league. As far as the rest of the conference was concerned, Delaware had to play JMU, so one CAA team was going to be eliminated regardless. Elon was banged up after a boatload of injuries and were underdogs on the road at SoCon champ Wofford. Our game could have gone either way, though to be fair we were on the road against a team that turned out to be better than we thought they were. Not a horrible loss. Only Towson was an embarrassment to the CAA.
