    Davidson actually was in the original Colonial League (now Patriot League) for football....not sure how it worked exactly (provisional status?) as they nevah played Holy Cross during that time (mid-late 1980s).

    ETA: Just found this...I'm sure I've read this before in the past but interesting reading 31 years later:

    Will it be a positive or negative correlation ?

    Yes.

    This year we're dividing the year founded by ranking. If it's an odd number, you take the highest place digit and add it to your ranking number...if it's even, you subtract it from your rank number.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, I went to the #106 school in the Midwest region.

    Please slow down. I don't know this geology stuff.
    The only untenable situation is the one you are in right now. Support the dissolution of football at Missouri State University.

    Yeah, I saw that. We had been #1 in the South region for like ... forever. Or at least a bunch of years recently. Not sure what changed this year.

    Sorry...sorry, my bad.

    Ok, how about this one...
    1. Grab a handheld calculator
    2. Take MSU's current Sagarin ranking (189) and multiply that by the US News Ranking for MSU in the Midwest region (106).
    3. Take that number and multiply it by the major interstate that goes through Springfield, MO (44).
    4. Multiply that number by the number of years left on Steckel's contract including this year (6)
    5. Add the cost of attendance for non-Missouri residents for a year at MSU (24,383).
    6. Take Brodie Lambert's longest run last season (46) and Breck Ruddick's total rushing yards last season (49) all as one number (4649) and add that to your previous result.
    7. Turn the calculator upside down.
