    Southern Conference Week 11 Power Rankings/Pick 'Em

    I was 2-3 last week. VMI got their first win while ETSU claims a share of the SoCon title. Here is where I have it after this week:

    1) ETSU (IN) - Claims their first SoCon title in program history.
    2) Samford (OUT*) - Keeps their autobid hopes alive for another week.
    3) Wofford (1 of 2) - Failed in their quest to lock down a share of the title this week.
    4) Furman (OUT*) - Spoiled Chattanooga's chances
    5) Chattanooga (1 of 2) - Fell off the tracks
    6) The Citadel (OUT) - Surprised on the road
    7) Mercer (OUT) - Got themselves a not too shabby QB
    8) Western Carolina (OUT) - Suffered a second-half collapse
    9) VMI (OUT) - Finally got a win.

    * can only see the playoffs with the autobid

    Autobid Status
    ETSU claims autobid next week with Samford and Wofford loss.

    This Week's Games
    Mercer @ Chattanooga - Mocs find a way to get another win
    Furman @ VMI - Paladins ensures a winless conference team for another year
    Samford @ The Citadel (Upset Special of the Week) - Lowcountry Bulldogs defend this house
    Wofford @ Western Carolina - Would love to pick the Catamounts in this one but they're done

    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, came home to the SoCon and won their first SoCon title.

    IT'S GREAT TO BE A BUCCANEER!

    I don't see why you keep listing Furman as "OUT"

    7 D1 wins is not a prerequisite. The Paladins have no control over a hurricane that caused a game cancellation. At 6-4, they'll have a resume as good as many 7-4 teams with a win over a lower division squad.
    FU all the time.

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the league’s roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    I like The Citadel's chances against a coach who needed two years to figure out Jayson Foster should be a quarterback...

    No, see my post in the other thread. Furman loses the point tie breaker big time if your scenario above happens. Furman is screwed most likely even if they win out. And beating Mercer is not a given in any event.

    It will become clearer after next week.
    FIRE THOSE CANNONS!

    No way dude you are wrong, think how ridiculous that would be to decide a tie between 3 teams by looking at other completely unbalanced games, that is absurd

    Furman has given up 46

    Wofford has given up 51

    ETSU has given up 57
