Yeah, and I don't necessarily disagree, I'm just not prepared to give them 4 seeds or whatever the heck the number is thrown around. 3 Seems appropriate (and I'm calling the Sac State upset).
Yeah and a decade ago we had App state and Georgia Southern in the socon, but we're not allowed to count them, for whatever reason (that elevates the socon numbers to 4).
I think the SoCon deserves credit for what App State and Georgia Southern accomplished while they were in the conference. That has no impact on how I would rank Wofford, Furman or any current SoCon team though. It also means that the SoCon only gets credit for I believe 2 of Georgia Southern's 6 national championships.
