This week Keith and Pat discuss not only the big games from the past weekend but also take a snapshot of which conferences exceeded expectations and which underperformed.

  1. well done well done look forward to it each week might be the best 50 min. of my day…on a side note can we have who they play next put back on the top 25 listing??

  2. A couple OAC comments:

    – John Carroll’s out-of-conference loss shouldn’t carry too much weight. Many in the OAC did not expect them to be competitive with CRWU. The program has been in decline since the 2002 playoff run and may be battling Wilmington for the bottom of the conference this year.

    – Keith mentioned the last time Mount Union missed the playoffs was sometime in the 90’s. It was 1991 when they finished the season 8-1-1

  3. Neil — yes, that’s on a to-do list. Takes a little more work, hasn’t been done yet and there are other Top 25 display issues to work out first.

    NWOhio — agreed that many did not expect JCU to be competitive with Case, but we did, and that was part of what we based the preseason ranking on was our expectations.

  4. interesting national perspectives as always.

    not sure i agree clu overlooked/wasn’t focused with plu – could be the lutes were/are simply better? guess time will tell.

    on final comment – a minor correction (how could i resist?): fisher isn’t hosting hobart – the game is in geneva and it’ll be the first home night game in the statesmen’s 117 yr history.
