Reverse Survivor: Hartford off the island, Bellarmine, Binghamton, Mercer still on

Three teams are left with winless record, but it could go down to two in a couple of weeks.

One team left the island this past weekend in the 2019 Reverse Survivor competition.* The America East has one representative left, while the SoCon still has two. Last week, probably the best remaining winless team got a win to start America East conference play.

The team that is on to better thing:

We may have one final Reverse Survivor-off remaining. More on that shortly.

Reverse Survivor Week 5

Team Record Next Opponent Date Opponent After That Date
Team Record Next Opponent Date Opponent After That Date
Bellarmine 0-7 vs. Richmond 3/23 @ Mercer* 3/30
Binghamton 0-6 vs. Albany 3/23 at Stony Brook 3/29

*Games that could be elimination games if teams are still winless at time of game.

Candidates To Leave The Island

So for the past two weeks, the team I declared (or semi-declared) the best winless team won a game that weekend. I don’t think it continues this week since I think Bellarmine is the best winless team left. But they play the Richmond Spiders on Saturday. That’s tough.

The Binghamton Bearcats have to face off against the Albany Great Danes to kick off America East conference play. They have Stony Brook next Friday. The Bearcats will play Hartford, who won their first game on Saturday, in late April. That’s probably their best chance of a win.

The Mercer Bears have the best chance to win this week when they travel to take on the VMI Keydets. However, this Keydet team is a much better group than they have been in previous years. It should be a close game.

If Mercer and Bellarmine do lose this weekend, we’ll have one final Reverse Survivor-off next Saturday between the two SoCon opponents.

*St. Bonaventure is also winless, while Hampton has not won a game against a Division I opponent. Since the Pirates are still in a transition schedule that features many Division II and III schools and the Bonnies are a first-year program, they are not eligible for this season. To include those two programs in this competition misses the point.
