    SoCon Week #3 Pick 'em

    Last week I was 6-2 as a result of some fabulously bad performances. So here is where I have at it after this week:

    1) Wofford - Is quite possibly the luckiest team in the SoCon with two conference wins in the barn.
    2) The Citadel - Won in a rout on the road.
    3) Samford - Is last Thursday's performance a sign of things to come?
    4) Mercer - Had nothing to be ashamed of yesterday.
    5) ETSU - No shame in getting hammered by the top dogs in the FCS
    6) Western Carolina - Hammered one of the weakest links in FCS
    7) Chattanooga - Both losses were against ranked FCS and FBS opponents
    8) Furman - Lost to an Elon team that was also fabulously bad
    9) VMI - Catawba are you kidding me?

    Furman @ NC State - Wolfpack chews them up
    The Citadel @ ETSU - I foresee an improved performance from the Bucs but not enough
    VMI @ Robert Morris - I don't see VMI winning this one
    Mercer @ Auburn - The War Eagles fly in this one
    Western Carolina @ Gardner-Webb - Catamounts win one on the road
    UT Martin @ Chattanooga - Mocs win their first one here
    Samford @ Georgia (Beatdown of the Week) - Samford finds out the hard way who the alpha dogs are
    Once upon a time, I was an ETSU alumnus who attended Appalachian State. But then the "evil ones" (Paul Stanton and Dave Mullins) killed it and I became an Appalachian State fan. A few years later:

    - Paul Stanton retired
    - Dave Mullins "retired"
    - Appalachian State moved on to greener pastures in the Sun Belt.
    - ETSU brought back football and came home to the SoCon.

    It's going to be great being a Buccaneer again.

    NC State over Furman - Not a good day for Furman, but the money will be a winner.
    The Citadel over ETSU - May not have 52 points scored against ETSU, but ETSU is better than Presbyterian
    Robert Morris over VMI - VMI will not be able to overcome Robert Morris
    Auburn over Mercer - Tough day for the Bears
    Western Carolina over Gardner Webb - GW is a little tougher than Davidson, but Western will still pull off the win.
    Chattanooga over UT-Martin - This will be a good test to see where the Mocs are at this point of the season.
    Georgia over Samford - Samford will score points, but Georgia will have a field day with the Bulldog D.

    Re: SoCon Week #3 Pick 'em

    1. Wofford: VERY tenuously at the top after two rather unconvincing performances. But they're the only team with any conference wins and they started at the top. They're here until beaten.
    2. The Citadel: PC stinks, but it was a dominating performance. Dogs look tough. Definitely a SoCon and national contender to me.
    3. Chattanooga: The best 0-2 team in FCS. Still could win the conference.
    4. Mercer: Impressive against the Terriers; just couldn't hold on. May be poised to make great strides in the SoCon this season.
    5. Samford: 2 wins over relatively weak opponents; these Bulldogs have a long way to go on defense. But they can still get it together and contend.
    6. WCU: Moved the ball well at Hawaii. The Davidson game tells us nothing. Still unproven to me at this juncture.
    7. ETSU: The may well deserve a higher spot, but still unproven to me. A win vs. Limestone is not enough and they predictibly couldn't stay with JMU. Bucs still need to show me more.
    8. Furman: Really wet the bed at home against a bad Elon team. I now see they still have a ways to go.
    9. VMI: The Keydets' woes continue. They might be in for a winless 2017.

    NC State dispatches the Paladins of Furman 42-14.
    The Citadel downs ETSU 31-13 for its first conference victory.
    Robert Morris defeats VMI 42-31.
    Auburn takes its Clemson frustrations out on Mercer 45-10.
    Gardner-Webb is decent. They score a mild home upset over WCU, 27-24.
    Chattanooga holds off UT-Martin for win number one 28-23.
    Georgia scores at will and destroys Samford 55-7.
    Wofford enjoys a bye week.

    Re: SoCon Week #3 Pick 'em

    NC State
    vs Furman
    The Citadel vs ETSU First two games The Citadel has relied on the run. If the same ETSU run defense shows up that showed up against the Dukes and during the first half against Limestone, then this game may be closer than some think. If not, then loss #2 for my Bucs
    Robert Morris vs. VMI I want to pick VMI, but I just can't
    Auburn vs. Mercer
    Gardner Webb vs. WCU
    UTC vs UT-Martin

    2-The Citadel

    Reason number one why I am a bandwagon fan: the Ivy League football teams are not playing at their best nationally.
