NEC Pick Ďem Ė Week 11

Only three conference games this week:

Wagner at Sacred Heart (-3.5) Noon
St. Francis at CCSU (-14) Ė Noon
Duquesne at Robert Morris (+6.5) 1:00 pm

  • CCSU, Duquesne and .... Robert Morris are all 4-0 in conference, and some combination of the three teams will play each other the last three weeks of the season. While Iím anticipating CCSU and Duquesne each being 6-0 when they play on 11/23, Iím not completing ruling out a three way tie where they all finish 6-1. Iím pulling for them this weekend, but I expect Duquesne to prevail.

  • CCSU is up to #15 in the AGS Top 25 Ė which may be the highest ranking Iíve seen on here for an NEC squad. I still think that may be a little high, but I understand why they are ranked there. They havenít had a game decided by less than 10 points since a 5 point loss to Eastern Michigan in Week 4 (which is their only loss on the season.) While they should have little trouble against my Red Flash (who never seem to play well at CCSU), I still canít completely get passed the fact that CCSU barely survived Fordham and Merrimack earlier in the season.
