--The SoCon got four wins on Wednesday and two of them were over D1 teams. To beat that, the
SoCon won two road games. Wofford beat Gardner-Webb and Davidson stunned Charlotte in overtime. Those are two decent wins for the SoCon. So, in a way, it was good work by the SoCon on Tuesday.
--On the other hand, the SoCon lost in blowout fashion two winnable games. Samford was beaten at home by UT-Martin by 16, beating down the favorite preseason darling in the SoCon, dropping them to 0-7 against D1 competition. Furman, who early in the season was looking much improved, was hammered by Fordham on the road by 31 points. Yes, Fordham was a definite favorite. But they probably should not be beating Furman by 31 points.
--On the reasonable side of the ledger of losses, Western Carolina lost by 8 at Coastal Carolina. The Citadel hung close with Navy, but lost by 5. Those are both respectable losses for the SoCon.
--I had been looking forward to some posts from Dash regarding the Presbyterian loss on Tuesday night. While the analysis was not too....ummmm....colorful, but his initial instant reaction is worth reviewing.
--From the good side of the SoCon ledger on Monday night, The Pendulum has a write up on the Elon win over VMI.
--For those who haven't been following the Dork Tour, I invite you to. Very good reads.
