RACE TO CAA 6-2 or BETTER

CAA Undefeated Teams bonus points if these are the 3 teams you predicted would be undefeated at this stage of the season
Rhode Island (5-0) / (3-0) ... win 3 of 5 (@ Towson, @ Villanova, Maine, New Hampshire & Elon) ... OOC game remaining @ UMass
Villanova (4-1) / (2-0) ... win 4 of 6 (@ Albany, Rhode Island, W&M, @ Elon, Stony Brook & @ Delaware)
William & Mary (4-1) / (2-0) ... win 4 of 6 (@ Maine, Towson, @ Villanova, @ Delaware, James Madison & Richmond)

CAA One Loss Teams
James Madison (4-1) / (2-1) ... win 4 of 5 (@ Richmond, @ Delaware, Elon, @ W&M & Towson) ... OOC game remaining vs Campbell
Delaware (3-2) / (2-1) ... win 4 of 5 (@ Stony Brook, James Madison, W&M, @ Richmond & Villanova) ... OOC game remaining vs Dixie State
New Hampshire (3-2) / (2-1) ... win 4 of 5 ( @ Elon, Richmond, @ Albany, @ Rhode Island & Maine) ... OCC game remaining vs Dartmouth
Elon (3-3) / (2-1) ... win 4 of 5 (New Hampshire, @ James Madison, Villanova, @ Towson & Rhode Island)
Towson ((2-3) / (1-1) ... win 5 of 6 (Rhode Island, @ W&M, Albany, @ Richmond, Elon & @ James Madison)

CAA Two Loss Teams
Richmond (2-3) / (0-2) ... win out (James Madison, @ Stony Brook, @ New Hampshire, Towson, Delaware & @ W&M)

BYE-BYE
Maine (1-4) / (0-3)
Stony Brook (1-5) / (0-3)
Albany (0-5) / 0-3)

Rhode Island, Villanova, James Madison and New Hampshire ... JMU & Villanova, are the best teams so far; URI & UNH have friendly schedules
William & Mary ... @ Maine & Towson must wins; win 2 of 4 vs Villanova, Delaware, JMU the records don't matter game vs Richmond
Delaware ... @ Stony Brook, W&M, @ Richmond are must wins; must win 1 of 2 vs James Madison & Villanona and beat OOC Dixie State
Elon ... probably needs to win out with 1-2 OOC record, which include FCS loss to Wofford.
Towson ... also has a 1-2 OOC record (loss to FCS NDSU) so they too need to win out for 8 overall wins.

Everybody getting excited for the big showdown with Nova at the end of the season? Better get those tickets ASAP, will surely be a barn burner and sell out. Can't wait to see what Rocco can do in 2022 with another year of recruiting. We should have 14 QB's on the team by then. He should adopt that catchy slogan Built Back Better.

You may well be correct Dan, but gazing westward I’m considering the real possibility that a 7-4 /5-3 CAA team will be left at home. In a nutshell, Nova, JMU and that’s it for CAA playoff teams unless someone else can get to that magic 8-3 / 6-2 mark. The playoffs may well be MVFC and Big Sky heavy this year.

How could any 7-4 CAA team be included in the FCS playoffs- Teams/conferences west of here are so far superior in their football quality this season that even JMU looks susceptible to losing again( if it's humanly possible against our powerful CAA teams). Heck, any decent coach with a solid defense like ours would have beaten JMU Saturday if he had a clue about creating an offense and recruiting better OLs, QBs, OC coaches.

Our frustration is overwhelming our love for our university. I hate to be the one to state, that as I have implied before, CR does not possess the athletic prowess/experience/knowledge to hire coaches. Maybe she as the expertise in her swimming which she competed in. In Fundraising ,she is a quality leader. This is reality.

We have had a tough time with hiring quality ADs for a long time. The result is an athletic program going downhill on a slippery slope that has no moguls! We're in big trouble as I post.
Keep the faith kick butt go Hens

Agreed on the possibility; Weber, for instance, just kept itself alive for a Big Sky at-large. The SoCon also has ETSU and VMI trending positively in a pretty deep league.

7-4 is no guarantee. I do still view it as required to be on the bubble, in the conversation. Doesn't mean you'll get through the door :o
