Half the field is already gone after one week of the 2018 Reverse Survivor competition*, including our only really good ranked team.

The teams that are on to better thing:

Half the field that won games did so in Reverse Survivor-offs, which isn’t that surprising. But this week, we only have two Reverse Survivor-offs, both of them in the state of New York. Stony Brook hosts Hofstra on Long Island, while Binghamton travels to take on Hobart in Central New York.

Candidates To Leave The Island

I like Hobart and Hofstra in the Reverse Survivor-offs, but there are a few other teams that could also get off the island.

Drexel might not beat Villanova in their midweek matchup, but have a good chance against a Marist team that has struggled during the season. They picked up a win yesterday afternoon against a pretty bad Binghamton team. The Dragons are winless after losing to Virginia and Albany, and that was expected anyway.

I can also see Hartford with either Fairfield or Harvard. The Hawks played St. John’s and Bryant tough and have good opportunities to knock off one of those aforementioned teams this week. St. Joe’s and Stony Brook (if they can’t beat Hofstra) also look to have good odds to get their first win of the season.

*Hampton is also winless, but since they’re still in a transition schedule that features many Division II and III schools, they are not eligible for this season. To include a program that doesn’t play a full Division I schedule in this competition misses the point.
