One of the best links ever on “playoffs.”
Here is what we understand the scenario to be for the Gamecocks.
GAMECOCKS WIN AND EKU AND T. TECH BOTH LOSE: JSU is undisputed conference champion and goes to the playoffs. EKU could easily lose to Martin, but it is hard to imagine Tech losing to Peay.
GAMECOCKS WIN AND EITHER TECH OR EKU LOSE: If this happens and the OVC gets two teams in to the playoffs, the Gamecocks would get a bid. Last year two OVC teams got bids.
GAMECOCKS, EKU AND TECH ALL WIN: If this occurs, our guess is that JSU would be on the outside looking in. Not sure what the selection committee looks at, but EKU and Tennessee Tech both have head to head advantage over the Gamecocks.
