Lunardi's Logic

The Spartans were the best team in the MEAC all year long despite finishing a game back of Savannah State in the standings. Norfolk beat Savannah in the team's only meeting of the season and won seven in a row to claim the only MEAC title that matters. I hope they at least get a good steak in Omaha.
