The out of conference performance will be a factor.
This is on point so let's explore.
I doubt if Savannah State's wins/loses affect the SIAC at this point however, if they do count their schedule will bring down the SOS. They lost to Fla Tech which is ranked 66th behind FVSU. Playing VUL and EWC probably hurt if they count SSU. Charleston and Alcorn are no help.
Albany State losing Missisppi College will hurt unless they keep winning they are 2-2 in DII play. If they continue to win beating W. Georgia will definitely help and losing to the #1 Ranked school (Valdosta) actually should help.
Fort Valley - Not sure how much beating unranked Shorter and and Fla Tech will help. FAMU does nothing.
Morehouse - AAMU does nothing while Edward Waters probably hurts.
CAU - Losing to Livingstone hurts and losing to Allen probably has the SOS at 0.
Benedict - Losing to Fayetteville St and J.C. Smith probably hurt the SOS real bad.
Miles - Struggling against the team that lost to Allen probably hurts more than the loss to MO S&T. Edward Waters is another killer to the SOS.
Central State - unranked Quicy and Sothwest Baptist appear to be headed for a losing season. Then there's AAMU and Edward Waters again.
Tuskegee - Losing to Bama Stank means nothing, however losing to WSSU hurt especially since they are having a dismal season. W. Alabama recently dropped out of top 25 so it might not be as bad. But looky here Edward Waters again. EWC is single handedly destroying the SIAC SOS this year.
I know they are trying to come in but they are hurting you now IMHO.
Kentucky State -Shines against FBS and FCS opponents then turned to shyt in conference. Here comes Edward Waters again and Lincoln Mo has lost to everybody.
Lane - two FCS, NAIA Texas College and you guessed it Edward Waters will have you on the couch doing the playoffs.
NOTE: This is just one black man's opinion, right or wrong.
