    A&T will be a darkhorse if they don't win the MEAC. Wins in the OOC and running thru the MEAC will make them a 9 or 10 win team come NOV

    Idk, A&T didn't do themselves or the MEAC any favors with their playoff performance last year. I think it's going to be harder and harder for a MEAC team to get an at large playoff bid as the years go by without any representation on the selection committee.

    If A&T beats Charlotte FBS and Gardner Webb, and they don't win the MEAC, it will be hard to leave them out while putting in a 7-4 team. But then again, i've seen crazier things

    Re: Athlon's Projected FCS Playoff Teams

    I've followed Wofford football since 2003, and really closely since 2007. I don't think I can remember a single time we were picked to win the Southern Conference (we were always in App/GSU's shadow). I don't know how I feel about this pick.

    Oh that National Champion D2 school, yes I have no doubt the rest of the SLC would have had no issues beating that team. Kansas, you really going back 10 years?? Those Kats would have had trouble beating anyone so if you go back that far you are correct, Sam does have a history of losing those games. Heck our 2003 team got smashed by Tarleton.

    That D2 team was much better than anyone in the SLC, and 98% of the FCS for that matter. They would have demolished the Bears. I don't see PV being that good.
