Lance gives a little more guff to Kris for being absent and then moves on to some conference style predictions.
He first tackles the AQ7 mashup for this season. He thinks ACU has stepped up a bit and looks for them to cause a little trouble for at least 1 of the top teams in this conference. UCA is his pick. He loves those 3 letters together apparently.
“Kris” picks EWU to win the Big Sky. Lance goes over all the teams briefly and picks EWU as an omage to Kris I guess?
Big South – gets a look too. You’ll need to listen to get any more information on this one. Okay, Lance like Monmouth.
CAA – JMU is the easy pick but Lance thinks the Delaware Blue Hens are going to go round the outside and take the crown like two trailer park girls.
We slide on by Ivy & MEAC to keep his focus on playoffs.
MVFC – This conference is loaded, there is no doubt about it and who gets the nod? NDSU may squeak by all the other quality and take this over again by the end of the year according to LB.
NEC – Sacred Heart? Bryant? Can CCSU come back from an embarrassment in Week 1 and win the conference. Probably gonna be SHU says Lance.
OVC looks like it will probably go to Austin Peay at first blush.
Patriot League – Holy Cross, nuff said.
Pioneer – Lance thinks Dayton stops struggling but USD still takes it at the end.
SoCon – Furman, ETSU, VMI, seem to look like early favorites. The Paladins get the nod but unfortunately won’t be able to celebrate at Tommy’s Ham House if they win it. I loved that place!
Southland – SELA, Nicholls, UIW look to be the favorites and which one out of these? SELA looks to be the one that should make it.
SWAC – Lance keeps thinking that maybe a team from this league with get back in the playoffs and because it will be an interesting watch he recommends keeping an eye on A&M…Alabama that is, for the crown.
UNI to Sac State
UCA to Missouri State
Towson to UNH
Sacred Heart to Bryant
