    Using the same logic that seemed to be in vogue when the PSAC faithful used it to justify WCU staying at 5, NDC losing to the #2 team wont result in them falling!!

    As a bubble them, WCU on a two game losing streak would be devastating.

    None of it matters. The CIAA will have that 8th spot. Wait and see.

    Possibly...as would an outlier winning the PSAC and/or MEC tourney.

    I could 'possibly' see Concord or Charleston doing it. But ... not good odds.

    PSAC ... not so much. There's too big of a dip past the top teams. A one-game upset, maybe. But not multiple. Kutztown or UPJ could win a big game but not a couple in a row.

    Depends on who Lutz and UPJ beat. If they take out supposed frontrunners IUP and WCU, PSAC would be wide open.

    Thanks to IUPBI for posting this week's regional rankings. I've been asleep most of today as I've battled a cold and have been on meds, so I haven't been online too much today.

    Three of yesterday's Top 10 (region) go down last night -- Mercyhurst, West Chester and Notre Dame.

    Virginia State won its first game in the CIAA.

    UMMM, if UPJ beat IUP and WCU that would mean they are in the PSAC championship game. DUH!

    IUP isn't playing in the first round.

    So what hurts more, #4 Hurst losing to a bad unranked team, #7 WCU losing to the #10 team or #8 NDC losing to the #2 team?

    Obviously Mercyhurst took the worst loss but how far do they fall?

    That and what effect does WCU's two game losing streak have?

    Based on all the movement this week, Mercyhurst could be in a precarious spot. ESU has a head to head win over them and if the Warriors move up, no reason to think Fairmont won’t also. And if their PSAC tournament ends with a third loss to SRU they could have a real problem.

    Here's my guess -- based on the events of last night:

    1. IUP
    2. West Liberty
    3. Virginia State
    4. Fairmont State ----------- yes, 7 losses but they've played a good schedule and the metrics like them (although ESU would murder them in the 4-5 game)
    5. East Stroudsburg ----------- red hot, yes, but those three ugly (real early) non-conference losses are still part of their body of work
    6. Mercyhurst -------------- ????
    7. Shippensburg
    8. Notre Dame

    9. West Chester
    10. Slippery Rock

    If Slippery Rock beats Mercyhurst for a third time ... it's going to be hard to keep SRU out. Pair those three wins with the wins over IUP and West Chester and they will have a very solid resume.

    How far could East Stroud climb in the rankings given any potential scenario. Say ESU wins the PSAC and VSU doesn’t win the CIAA, could they vault up to 3? Is that possible?

    What will kill VSU in any tie-breaker scenario is the fact they are just 0-1 against regionally ranked teams -- for the entire season.
