Norwich/SUNY Maritime game should be interesting/important one too.

Thanks for keeping the running update going.
CWRU and Wesley look like locks (not that either of them is a surprise).  Even with a loss, they're probably in.

SUNY-Maritime hasn't beaten anybody, and they do have their two toughest games coming up (Norwich & Mt. Ida)...but they are still favored to go undefeated.

Salisbury is almost definitely BETTER than SUNY-Maritime, but is probably stuck on the outside looking in unless they can beat Wesley and/or SUNY-Maritime trips up.  Too bad; going 7-2 with losses to Hampden-Sydney and Wesley is a nice season.

Hard to imagine any of the two-loss teams getting in, although WashU might have a case if they run the table (given that they'd have wins over Wabash and CWRU).

If HSC and Wesley are both undefeated and ranked in the Top 3 of the Final South Region rankings, I think that Salisbury might contend as a Pool C bid.

One-loss Hardin-Simmons still has to play McMurry.  HSU has non-conference/in-region wins over Whitworth and Willamette.

Week 7 is too early to definitively state what the post-Week 11 Pool C picture will look like. This time every year there look like a ton of worthy teams and some years a bunch lose, and some years, not enough do to make two-loss teams worth watching.

You are right about Salisbury being better, and I wish the door was open to two-loss teams a little more, but this is also part of the reason Salisbury is joining a conference, so it can get a fair shake at a playoff spot. Plenty of two-loss teams get in via AQ.

Also, H-SC isn't finishing undefeated, so clearly this is all moot. :D

Note that WashU's win over Wabash is non-regional and technically would not be considered by the committee unless the commitee had to get deep into secondary criteria, which is doubtful.  On the flip side, WashU's loss to Wittenberg isn't regional either.  If the Bears were to win their three UAA games, you'd assume that WashU and CWRU would both have 1-loss regional records, and with WashU having a h2h result over CWRU the Bears should be considered ahead of CWRU...if, of course, the two were at the table at the same time.

If Case, Wesley and SUNY Maritime go undefeated they should be locks. SUNY is obviously weaker compared to other teams but they'd have a shot to defeat at least one team depending on who they get matched up with, but they'll fall out pretty fast.

Unless they get matched up with St. Lawrence, SUNY-Maritime would be a one and done...

I hate to ask this, especially when I could just do the research and find out myself, but how many pool B's are there this year?
