LSC Preview -Southeastern Oklahoma

2007 Recap
The savages came into the 2007 season with high hopes, but the wheels came flying off pretty quick.

Before the season even started they were dealt their first blow when starting QB Justin Pitrucha was ineligible to play. After an easy win over Northwestern Oklahoma, they went on to get blasted by Tarleton (41-17) and Abilene Christian (41-3), upset by A&M-Kingsville (27-17) and devestated in a heartbreaker against A&M-Commerce, 41-39 in Triple Overtime.

After starting off the season 1-4, it just seemed like the Storm could never get their feet under themselves and win the games they had to win to claim the North Division for their own.

Big Games
Week 10 - Texas A&M-Commerce - The Savage Storm will travel to Commerce to play the Lions for what could be the deciding game for the LSC North. Most believe these are the 2 top teams in the division, and it could all come down to that game.

Best Case Scenario
7-4 While 7-4 may seem like a bit of a low estimate for their best case scenario, with the schedule they face it would be a good season. Games @ Tarleton, @ Midwestern, ACU, and then @ DIAA Northwestern University will be extremely tough to win. But if they win every other game, which is possible, they would finish off with a 7-4 record and win the LSC North.

Worst Case Scenario
3-8 Would be about the bottom of the barrel for Southeastern this year. I don't see how it could happen but if the wheels completely fly off, wins against Northeastern, Central Oklahoma and East Central could be all there is for them.
