First of all, Furman is completely legit. That's a Top 10, probably a Top 5 team in FCS. You can't convince me otherwise until I see them in a dogfight with a school that isn't in the FBS.
That being said, my issue is the nature of the loss. I'm OK with taking a loss to a very good team, but we got embarrassed. I just don't believe, at this stage of our program, teams should be embarrassing us. Particularly a team that won 3 games 3 years ago. Not that Furman isn't supposed to improve (they have in spades), but it just appears we haven't kept up. That's my biggest issue. With our facilities and all Mercer has to offer, I just have a hard time stomaching we are this far behind Furman. We clearly are based on today's results, but that doesn't mean we should be.
Again, I'm not taking anything away from Furman. They have gotten real good real fast. But I just don't believe we should ever be in a situation where we get our ass whipped in a conference game like we did today.
Maybe I'll feel differently tomorrow. I'm salty as hell right now tho.
Come all ye loyal sons and daughters, ring out the victory song. United all each foe we'll conquer. The battle now will not be long. The Orange and Black is proudly flying like a sign high in the sky, That leads us all in triumph. For Mercer we will live and die!

Welp, it’s looking real bad out there. Looks like best scenario is a 4-8 final record, and worst case a 2-10 finish. Not good. Pulling hard for this team to turn it around and prove me wrong! Halfway point of the season I know they expected more. It feels now like the Presbyterian game was added because they knew they needed a gimme win, not to pad stats on a championship season.
