    Re: Furman @ Samford. Socon game of the week

    Furman is already in the playoffs win or lose Saturday...The question is whether Samford will be?

    Re: Furman @ Samford. Socon game of the week

    I CANT WAIT TO SEE THIS ONE. 2 GOOD TEAMS DOING BATTLE.

    Samford playing for its post season life
    Furman looking to get a piece of the ship.

    Lots of things on the line....the loser will be sweating bullets for about a week until they get to see their name called on Selection Sunday.....or not.

    I am just glad we got our part of the SOCON done.......this game is pressure packed.....

I gather from what is being said here that we don't have a snowball's chance anyhow. Furman has a better resume' even if they lose, and Blazejowski(who is a great QB and person IMO) is so much better than Hodges, that we are doomed. Hey, maybe Herink of ETSU should be #2 - didn't he have over 400 yards of passing vs Furman?
    Also, Furman has the SoCon tradition, NC, and is obviously the best choice to represent the SoCon in the Playoffs. There is even a threat of rain in Homewood for Saturday. I wonder if Samford should just do the right thing and forfeit this mismatch?
    Samford is a great team... I just hope fu can somehow get out w a W. somehow. I mean that. You have beaten' Wofford (only team to do so) and whalloped Mercer - no one else held Mercer to 3 points! You have a lot of talent.

    *thank you for the response on injuries ! "Our last game vs ETSU we had 3 new starting O-Linemen. The center, RG, and RT. Our best WR, McKnight, has a shoulder injury.

Wasn't the Omari Williams kid listed as out one game too? Did he play v ETSU? thanks for answers. Figure I will watch the game replay but wanted to ask - you know your stuff. We are missing our 3 starting LBs but have been since game 4. Our CBs have been changed but not due to injury I don't think

    Not if AGS is a good poll. !! Last year the AGS poll had every AQ and at-large included included in their top 25 poll. The entire playoff list was in the AGS top 25. No exception unless an AQ from a weaker conference. Furman is currently 14 (13 if you take out NCAT) and Samford is about 18 (17 without NCAT). If 14 loses away at 18 then that probably puts Furman at 20th (19th without NCAT)? Are you saying AGS has it wrong ??

    Re: Furman @ Samford. Socon game of the week

    AGS is the best poll, period.
    But as has been mentioned in other threads Furmans SoS and wins are unimpressive.
    If games break certain ways this weekend the bubble will be packed an I think that leaves Furman on the outside looking in.
    At any rate, take care of business this saturday and no worries for the 'Dins

    Re: Furman @ Samford. Socon game of the week

    I hear ya. Just for what I was saying This one was last year. FU will be an AGS top 25 win or lose this week - at 14 we aren't falling out of poll
    ---
    The AGS poll nailed the field last year as well. This was the poll released prior to Selection Sunday (autobids are underlined, at large are bolded). Grambling and NC Central weren't eligible since they were in the Celebration Bowl.

    Rank Team: Total Points First Place Votes
    1 North Dakota State Bison 1636 32
    2 Eastern Washington Eagles 1631 24
    3T Jacksonville State Gamecocks 1509 4
    3T James Madison Dukes 1509 4
    5 Sam Houston State Bearkats 1505 4
    6 The Citadel Bulldogs 1364
    7 South Dakota State Jackrabbits 1284
    8 North Dakota Fighting Hawks 1208
    9 Youngstown State Penguins 1019
    10 Villanova Wildcats 1004
    11 Chattanooga Mocs 966
    12T Richmond Spiders 917
    12T Central Arkansas Bears 917
    14 Charleston Southern Buccaneers 814
    15 Lehigh Mountain Hawks 788
    16 Wofford Terriers 755
    17 Cal Poly Mustangs 585
    18 New Hampshire Wildcats 393
    19 Grambling State Tigers 357
    20 Samford Bulldogs 334
    21 Weber State Wildcats 277
    22 North Carolina Central Eagles 270
    23 Illinois State Redbirds 267
    24 North Carolina A&T Aggies 216
    25 Albany Great Danes 214


    Although to be fair I think the STATS poll also projected the field correctly last year after talking out the ineligible teams and the autos.
