Default Playoff race...Updated QP's

Chuck said that going into tonight the magic number for 3rd was 19.5 for E.K. to eliminate Albany....
Albany went down to Minot 5.5 to 1.5 tonite which should reduce the magic number to 14 for the Miners to wrap up third for that return trip to face Pitt.

If the team plays well, hoping we can get half that tomorrow (which would be the first 7-0 if I'm not mistaken) versus the Krunk who visits Pikeville.

I am hoping they will just replace the Albany/Pitt makeup game the 11th with E.K. play-in game if Albany is mathmatically eliminated.

Last year we ended our home season against Minot with the final game being a doubleheader with the Steelers. The X were blown out by the Skyrockets in a two game sweep. Needless to say they never made the playoffs.
This time, the X need to beat whoever our opponents will be following the doubleheader.
It still bothers me that you have Atlanta to host and we don't.

Yep, it's 14, and that takes into account that Pittsburgh matchup. So now the Miners can actually eliminate Albany straight out if they 7-0 ATL and 7-0 Minot.

the Xplosion attracted the record crowd(2,582) vs Atlanta. So I see no reason why we can't get at least that for the doubleheader on the 11th. But the X have to start promoting again.

Keep in mind that you got a forfeit win earlier this season in ATL whereas the league told the Miners they HAD to play in the same gym that the X were allowed to not play in due to temps in the 40's..... and this was when the Krunk was full rostered... before the financial struggles stripped the team to 5 players. So it seems the X have already benefitted from the Krunk, plus you get the GF forfeits...

the steelers being there will draw 2000.... if you add in the 3-500 that have interest in the X, plus the 1-200 that the Miners will have you should pull between 2400-2700 (perhaps 3000) if they replace the Patroons with the Miners

Regardless of whatever article was printed in the Troy Record, at this point there have been no points awarded based on forfiets for either Albany, East Kentucky or Pittsburgh. Albany remains at 19-22, East Kentucky at 23-21 and Pittsburgh at 23-18. If they do finally decide to give those points out, it will have little to no impact, as each team would receive at least two 7-0 victories (Albany would receive 3, the others 2). Not sure they'll even award those points at all

i just wish there was some sort of league announcement regarding the play-in game date so that fans desiring to travel can make arrangements given that it will likely be mid-week.

ot, a lot depends on whether the X promote. I remember seeing a lot of tv ads leading up to the doubleheader, which drew over 1,500. But I've seen nothing yet as far as the 11th, leading me to believe that they may be waiting for official word. The X website still has the last win over the Miners.

FO, I'm sure you are probably right. I emailed the league office and I received a replay saying "we did what we felt was best for everyone". That's nonsense(imo), but whatever. Given how they handled certain teams, I guess I should not be surprised. I'm just disappointed.
