2) Three Big Questions
Last year Incarnate Word shocked the world and went from laughing-stock to playoff team. Could Houston Baptist be an early pick to do the same?
What has happened to Wofford? It didn’t look like Samford would win a game this season the way their season started.
A season ago, a LOT of people wanted to downgrade Montana for struggling with Drake for 2.5 quarters before putting them away. They fell in the next AGS poll from 14 to 16. South Dakota State did the same exact thing on Saturday, and actually gained a first place vote in the poll. One season it’s horrible for a 14th ranked team to not dominate Drake from the get go, the next season it’s excusable that the #3 team in the country was only up 14 on a lowly non scholarship team.
Why haven’t they been getting the same response?
