Old Mossy Horns
I can think of a few ACC losses (historically mediocre teams) that would probably hurt your SOS and ranking more. If App has a season like the last 4-5, they will probably be ranked inside the top 50 all season, and likely inside the top 40 with no bad losses.and why add two more games to the series if that is the case.. they dodged them this year specifically because they new they were out gunned. Heck with a limited crowd and in Winston they should have had an advantage.. they are used to playing to an empty stadium
Simply put, anything non conference that isn't cartel 5 has to be a win game. App isn't a powder puff. They know it.
