Great win over RMU on Saturday. Let's keep the momentum going with a win over the " Dukes " this coming Saturday. Congrats to the team on the NEC football championship and gaining the AQ to the FCS playoffs. Go Blue Devils !!!

If I am not mistaken this is the first time a Central football team has won 10 games, of course for most of the history of the school they did not play 10 games but nevertheless, this is a remarkable season. And to think that all this came after losing an NFL caliber QB to graduation! Go figure!
An eleven win season would make this the greatest football team in the schools history. An NCAA tournament win would be even better, but now I am getting ahead of myself.
Its on to Duquesne.

Said it early and still believe. We need to get that ncaa win, even if it’s only one.

Also, anyone know why they were celebrating BEFORE Bryant did us a favor? Even to have the Comish there to present the trophy? Pretty sure JJ or Larry did the math and it was not a forgone conclusion when they took the pile on picture? Duquesne made it interesting to boot...

Yes the celebration seemed to be premature.
Maybe this was the reason? with the win over RMU, Central was guaranteed a tie for the title. In the event of a tie all teams concerned are considered co champs. The tie breaker is only to determine which co champ goes to the NCAA tournament.
from the NEC website:
CCSU can earn at least a share of the NEC title with a win over RM
[,,,,,,]
The tiebreaker procedure will be used only to determine a league champion for purposes of a postseason opportunity.
