Was texting with a buddy of mine who is a grad of SELA, which apparently gives a degree to anyone. With them losing Saturday it made things very very interesting. We talked about how next week's game could be for a championship again and three teams could share the title. Wanted to bring this up to see what everyone else thought.
Current Standings and opponents remaining
SELA - 7-2/5-1 Southland
Incarnate Word - 7-2/5-1 Southland
At Houston Baptist
Nicholls - 5-4, 4-2 Southland
at Southeastern Louisiana
Factor in wins for the Lions and UIW against NSU and HBU, then Nicholls wins their last two it would look like this. If Nicholls loses one or both, then it would be less complicated.
SELA - 8-3, 6-2 Southland, 8 D1 wins, 0-1 vs FBS
Incarnate Word - 8-3, 6-2 Southland, 8 D1 wins, 1-0 vs FBS
Nicholls - 7-4, 6-2 Southland, 7 D1 wins, 0-2 vs FBS
So does the Southland have any shot of all three making the playoffs since there would be a three-way tie for the title? Has a league champion ever missed the playoffs? This could be a great scenario for the Southland if all three get in, or worst nightmare if one or two of the conference champions are watching from home. I have no clue who gets the auto bid. I think it would be crazy if three of the six teams make it but who do you leave out?
