Hunter vs the Hunted (Roll Call)


 Share

Recommended Posts

Now that we knocked off Temple we move up to a  Hunted spot as opposed to being in the Hunter (spoiler roll).   Cincy and USF both clinched bowl eligibility this week so there in no pressure as far as that is concerned for either team.  On the flip side though We have the ONLY shot other than Temple to represent the AAC East in the championship game.  Cincy is mathematically out of that race.   We can not let our guard down,  We need to play with the same or more intensity than this past week( bigger goal is within reach).  

Cincy and UCF will be looking to play spoiler role for sure.   Lets take care of business in our house(Friday vs Cincy) and Thanksgiving in our second home of the season (UCF's bounce house)(I suspect we SHOULD have as many or more Bulls fans in their bld than they have considering their record, date of game and the beatdown heading their way)   

 ROLL CALL for Thansgiving :  Got my tickets   section 233 row B

Cincy is not mathematic out of it. sits out there is that Cincinnati could still win the division if they win their last two games against USF and East Carolina, and Temple loses to Memphis and UConn. That's all it would take for Cincinnati to be playing in the title game. Because they would win a three-way tie at 5-3 with Temple and USF. (Based on divisional record and then the head to head win over USF.)

Gotta take care of Cincy in the Ray Jay, this will be as big a test of character as Temple. Longer history with the Bearcats, always a respectable team. We owe them.

AGREE Cincy will be a test and battle.   Looking at common opponents and  their schedule,  this is a VERY WINNABLE GAME.  They beat AAMU the week we beat FAMU by similar score, they lost to Temple by 8, (we beat them by 21), They barely beat Miami Oh by 4, lost to Memphis by 8 ( we lost to Memphis by 7, They beat a bad Miami Hurricane team by 11, they lost to BYU by 14, They beat UConn by 21, (we beat UConn by 8), they beat UCF badly 52-7 but who hasn't?. they lost to a good Houston team by 3, beat Tulsa by 11 yesterday.   Think we match up well with them,  Our defense is made for teams like Cincy.   Our offense is clicking lately as well.  So if we play our game, play to win , not lose, limit mistakes,  we should win by dbl digits.

Good catch there,  looks like ur correct,  IF all 3 of us end up tied than Cincy would have tie breaker over us (winning the head to head), Will they have tie breaker over Temple since Temple beat them already ?

that is a good question, I suspect that temple would have the tiebreaker. It is amazing how complex all of this is, but I am just glad the bulls are winning.

Here's the AAC Tie Breaking procedures that confirms what you're saying:

Divisional Champions
The divisional champions will be the teams from each division with the highest winning percentage in all conference games – both divisional and non-divisional.

In the event of a two-team tie within a division, the head-to-head winner between the tied teams will be the championship game representative.

In the event of a multiple-team tie within a division, the following tiebreaker criteria will be used, in order:
  · Head-to-head record against the tied teams
  · Divisional winning percentage
  · Record against each team in the divisional standings, in descending order
  · Record against common non-divisional conference opponents
  · Overall winning percentage
  · Most recent College Football Playoff Selection Committee rankings (provided the highest-ranked team won its final game)
  · Average of selected computer rankings

If, at any point during the tiebreaker process, the criteria eliminates all but two teams, the two remaining teams would revert to the two-team tiebreaking procedure to determine the representative.
