Anyone still doubting the Farmingdale Fairfield auto bids? You told me to hold my horses with my preseason selection but this is ridiculous.
So basically your down to two teams now with long shots to squeeze in, SCSU which lost two tight games to Fairfied and George Mason which can score in bunches but I don’t think is strong enough defensively to beat the top two. Rowan who can’t score lost to Delaware who has played nobody. Quinnipiac lost by over two touchdowns to Farmingdale, lost by four to Fairfield and tied Rowan. I don’t think Cal is that strong this year I haven’t seen them though but heard they are nothing special, good but not great.
Waiting for today’s Farmingdale at Fairfield game to see the gap between the top two teams. Offensive team versus defensive team. Farmingdale needs to stay out of the box constantly
Farmingdale takes a bunch of stupid penalties in third period blows a 4-1 third period lead but wins it in overtime.
I did a basic “computer ranking” in excel. I just took last year’s top returning 15 from the computer ranking and added UPJ, and UCONN (just curious about how one team from that conference would shake out). Be advised I could only take into account the games that the teams played against each other, or else the formulas wouldn’t have worked. Below are the results:
I re-ran the excel I had made. Deleted PSU-Altoona, and added RMU, Maryland, and IUP, so that I included all teams from the big three conferences, plus Fordham and Ramapo from the MCHC. Due to lack of crossover games I couldn’t include the New England conference:
