    I believe our Sycamores will earn at least 2 W's from that list. Maybe more! These guys are not going to roll over and let someone kick their butt each week. Go Sycamores!!!

    I think you would have to say the "Top 30" and SIU at 47th wouldnt make that list.

    so to be in the top 70% of the conference you have to be in the top 24% of the country.

    perspective i guess.

    OK, I'll be more abstract then. There are 10 teams in the MVFC. In the latest poll, 8 are either ranked in the top 25 or receiving votes.

    The only ones not on there are us and Missouri State.

    I think we beat Missouri State on homecoming for our first and lone MVFC win this year. We keep Mallory and in 2019 we find out if he's Lou West (remains winless and gets fired halfway through the 2019 season) or Trent Miles (started out awful then built a winner by his third year).

    SIU and WIU are both on the road so those will be tough--but they are the other two possible wins. Heck, if we beat Quincy, EIU, and get 3 MVFC wins that's a 5-win season! I'd vote to give Curt a Lansing-esque 5-year automatic rollover contract if that happens LOL.

    I wont disagree with anything except that Lou West didnt play in this FCS/MVFC landscape.

    That’s why I put “or getting votes.” Hope you weren’t an English Lit or Joirnalism major, Bob! Nothin but love for you! See you soon.

    Sorry, I suppose I should have NOTICED the "receiving votes" comment. That must be why I am out of touch. However, if you add the receiving votes schools, it skews the numbers so 70 and 80% isn't correct either, but I love you too so fuck the math.... counselor. Going to the game on the 30th. (the "guaranteed" win)?

    Do we have a new school? I see 7 schools in the top 35, by your criteria. 70% are rated in the top 35. I'll buy that. Like I said above, fuck the math. I am not sure many on here do math very well anyway. How about half the conference are in the TOP 20? Now THAT'S impressive.
