    SLC Title Reasonings

    The clarification details Incarnate Wordís possible finish, and perhaps its opportunity to clinch at least a share of the Southland championship and its NCAA AQ, despite only playing eight conference games instead of nine like other teams do.

    In the Southlandís scheduling format, 10 of its 11 football teams play a nine-game schedule, while one team must play eight games.

    If Incarnate Word is the only remaining two-loss team at the end of the regular season, it shall be Conference champion and the recipient of the NCAA automatic berth.

    So IWU plays 8 conference games.

    IWU plays a post season game vs. Iowa State on Dec. 1 while the FCS playoffs begin Nov. 24th.

    Conflict much SLC?

    What would have happened if SFA would have had a good year and one of their conference games were cancelled due to rain? Hmmm...

    Thanks BEAR, I had just referenced this in the Bracketology thread, but this discussion may need a thread all its own.

    I do believe it was written in the UIW/ISU contract that the game would be cancelled if UIW makes the post season.

    Yeah, but I don't think a lot of us actually knew how that would play out when it came down to both the auto and at large bids. This helps clarify some.

    The SLC is up a creek without a paddle if 7 teams go 5-3 this week and the games of the last week are cancelled for whatever reason. 7 teams with the title. Talk about handing out trophies just for playing.

    A 5-4 team in the MVC would be up for one of the eight seeds in the playoffs.

    Can't happen. Valley plays an 8 game schedule.
