I don't think it's a possibility to have 4 teams with the identical records with a 8 game league slate.

Hmmm...let's see....pretty sure it's possible for all 9 Teams go 4-4....right?

Then if we 'flip' the outcome of 1 game, we have 1 @ 5-3, 1 @ 3-5 and 7 still at 4-4
Then 'flip' another game's outcome of 2 of the 7 remaining 4-4 Teams and we have 2 @5-3, 2 @3-5, and 5 at 4-4
Repeat...3 @ 5-3, 3 @ 3-5, and 3 at 4-4
Repeat 1 more time...4 @ 5-3, 4 @ 3-5, and 1 @ 4-4.

Seems possible to me....no?

So, if 4 finish 6-2, 4 would have finish 2-6? Is that possible? I'm genuinely curious.

I don't know man. FUBeAR Jr. is the dude with the Comp Sci major & Math & Econ minors. I'm a Liberal Arts guy. I Googled for a calculator to suss this out, but didn't find anything useful. Probably wouldn't take too long to run all of the possible combinations of the remaining games though...So...I got a little crazy...and...YES...there is a possible 4-way tie for 1st with the following scenario....there may be others, but I just wanted to prove that there was 1.

W L W L W L W L W L Tot W Tot L
Wofford 4 1 Mercer 1 Samford 1 WCU 1 6 2
ETSU 4 1 WCU 1 Mercer 1 Samford 1 6 2
Chatt 3 2 VMI 1 Furman 1 Mercer 1 6 2
Samford 3 2 Wofford 1 Citadel 1 ETSU 1 6 2

Hard to read...but IF...

Wofford beats Mercer, loses to Samford, and beats WCU...AND
ETSU beats WCU and Mercer, and loses to Samford...AND
Chatt beats VMI, Furman, and Mercer...AND
Samford beats Wofford, The Citadel, and ETSU...

Oh - Furman can 'swap in there' too, just by changing the outcome of their game with Chatt.

Then all 4 have 6-2 SoCon records and the apocalypse is upon us!

Check my math though...

That sounds right...seeing the league does not have a documented tie-break for a 4 way tie, I imagine it would go as smooth as a SoCon video review.
