I'm thinking about football!!! Nice little HERO Sports article about teams that didn't get in last year who might this year. (FU and Chatty on the list too)
A third SoCon team on this list shows just how insane the race in the standings is going to be. This conference is going to be incredibly improved, but the teams within it need to perform well in the nonconference to get more than two bids into the playoffs. The Citadel may not be on many people's radars nationally, but the Bulldogs should be with about 10 returning starters on offense and seven on defense.
This team went 5-6 last year, but was a pest in the SoCon. The Bulldogs pushed teams at the top of the standings, yet couldn't seal the deal and lost three SoCon games by seven points or less. Two of those came against co-champs Wofford and ETSU. With Brandon Rainey experienced at QB and the addition of SHSU transfer RB Remus Bulmer, this team is loaded and looks to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
