I am wondering if bringing in all of those schools would Be good for Mercer. I don’t know if those schools would feel a connection with us logistically unless their fan bases/alumni travel or have a presence in and around Atlanta.
Hopefully over time, rivalries between the privates (included W&M in that category because they resemble a private in a lot of ways) will develop. It takes time and big games to really develop a rivalry.
Who is Mercer's top rival in conference? Not obvious. We have to win to be hated.
Would welcome all of these but the snooty Phoenix. They already thought they were too good for the SoCon once. The SoCon conference RPI is looking strong this year, something like 10 or 11 out of 32, one behind the A10.
