(STATS) -- With its regular-season finale on Thursday night, Libertys players can watch the final full weekend of FCS action unfold from the comforts of their dorm rooms knowing theyll at least share the Big South championship regardless of their own result.Thats about all they know.Liberty (6-4, 4-1) lost control of its own playoff fate Saturday, but that doesnt mean its game at No. 16 Coastal Carolina is without meaning. Far from it, in fact, in the first game of what should be a wild weekend in the Big South.Charleston Southern (6-3, 5-1), ranked 14th, revived its hopes of back-to-back conference crowns by blasting the Flames 48-26 in Lynchburg last weekend, leaving those two teams and Kennesaw State with one league loss apiece. But in Libertys case that was its final conference game, so while theres the guarantee of a share of the Big South title, the automatic playoff bid that goes to the winner is still very much up in the air.The Buccaneers will grab it with a victory Saturday against the Owls (8-2, 3-1), but if they come up short their at-large aspirations will disappear thanks to a schedule thats only produced five wins over Division I opponents. Should Kennesaw State pull the upset, that automatic bid will go to Liberty.I really hate depending on other people and thats the kind of situation were in right now, Flames cornerback Chris Turner said. Weve just got to depend on somebody else to put us in the playoffs when we had the opportunity to do it ourselves.While Charleston Southern needs the auto bid, theres hope for Liberty and Kennesaw State to get in come Sunday morning even without it. For the Owls, beating Charleston Southern would give Brian Bohannons program a signature victory in its second year of building from the ground up.Its important to understand where we are, first of all, Bohannon said. If were fortunate enough to go beat a really good football team on Saturday, youll have a football team that is 9-2.Theres no question in my mind, if we take care of business, youre talking about maybe one of the hottest teams in the country. I dont think there is a team that would be more deserving to go play in the playoffs than Kennesaw State.The Flames played a difficult schedule, falling at Virginia Tech in September before hanging with SMU well into the fourth quarter. They also played Jacksonville State and won at Kennesaw, though the 22-point loss to the Bucs will certainly be fresh in voters minds.Enter Coastal Carolina, which is likely the last team Liberty wants to see as a potential spoiler.The Chanticleers won parts of three straight Big South titles from 2012-14 but are now transitioning to the FBS, so they wont take part in the FCS playoffs despite having a resume that would probably put them there otherwise. Theyd love to bid farewell to the subdivision by playing even a small part in the demise of Liberty, which is the only current Big South program that Coastal Carolina is under .500 against (6-7).Chanticleers coach Joe Moglia has made no secret of his animosity toward the Flames, who in his mind havent conducted themselves well before, during or after beating Coastal in each of the past two seasons.One of the things that a lot of people are not crazy about is their players ... spend a lot of time mouthing off at you, Moglia said. Theyre doing that at the beginning of the game, theyre doing it at halftime, theyre doing it during the game, theyre doing it during warmups. I dont find that particularly classy, so I wont miss that part.The man whos helmed those 2014 and 15 losses wont be standing on the sideline across from Moglia. Liberty coach Turner Gill is serving a one-game suspension for a self-reported program violation earlier this season, leaving defensive coordinator and safeties coach Robert Wimberly in charge.Hes well organized, he understands the university, understands the way we go about doing things, understands how I coach and how we lead the team, Gill said, so I thought he was the best person to give us the best chance to win this football game and lead our football team.To review: Charleston Southerns in with a win Saturday. A loss and its out, ceding the Big Souths automatic bid to Liberty. Even if the Bucs win, the Flames could get in with an impressive win over Coastal. Kennesaw State needs to beat Charleston Southern and hope the committee likes the Owls overnight success story. The Chanticleers are driving into town hoping to create chaos for their old pals before riding off to the big city.Got it?Come Sunday, the Big South is hoping two teams can say they do, too. Wholesale NBA Jerseys . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. NFL Jerseys China . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. . Here are his mid-season NBA awards. MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. Cheap NFL Jerseys . PAUL, Minn. Wholesale Authentic NFL Jerseys . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. One of the more enduring sets of data we can rely on for matchup purposes in the NBA is interior defense. Which is to say, the majority of teams that were poor in rim protection last season are again proving to be generous around the circle so far this year.The NBA tracks defensive allowance rates from all over the court, which can be helpful when were seeking to stream, build daily lineups, or choosing between close frontcourt calls in setting those lineups. Take a look at the 10-highest field goal allowance rates less than five feet from the basket this season.The league-average allowance from this range is 58 percent, so there are plus-matchup metrics on the interior when facing these teams, interestingly enough, made up almost exclusively of Western Conference clubs. Compare this group to last season, when the Lakers allowed opponents to shoot 63.3 percent from less than five feet, highest in the league. This suggests the Lakers will continue to be among the top interior matchups for frontcourt talents and drive-heavy guards. So, its no surprise to find them ranked?29th in defensive efficiency against opposing frontcourts this season, per Hoop Stats.The Timberwolves ranked 28th in defending this area of the floor last season, and are again third-worst in this space. The presence of Karl-Anthony Towns might create a reputation among fans that this team can protect the rim, but this information counters that premise. The Timberwolves are last in the league in defensive rating with an astoundingly generous 115.9 points yielded per 100 possessions over the past 10 games. We can confidently start our fantasy assets against Minnesota.The Kings were No. 26 in defending this interior space last season and rank just 24th this season, while the Pelicans were 29th last year and again return to the leagues bottom-third in paint protection. Keeping with this trend, the Wizards and Rockets also have been quite generous within five feet of the rim for consecutive seasons. Given that rim protection is dependent on personnel, as well as scheme, its reasonable to expect these teams will continue to struggle in defending this part of the floor.There is a seemingly helpful correlation in place for rebounding efficiency and rim protection, as the Mavericks, Kings, Pelicans, Lakers and Wizards all rate in the bottom-10 in rebounding percentage over the past 10 games. Leveraging this type of information when seeking differentiation for daily decisions can be essential to fantasy success.Fantasy Forecaster: Dec. 19-25The holiday weekend ahead makes for a somewhat unique schedule. The vast majority of teams are limited to three games, as the league takes Christmas Eve off, instead of going with the noormally-full Saturday slate.dddddddddddd This doesnt preclude some teams from earning favorable setups relative to the rest of the league, as marquee rosters in Cleveland and Golden State each enjoy inviting meetings with Brooklyn and its fantasy-friendly, pace-driven scheme. Then, of course, we are gifted the coveted Christmas matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers on Sunday.The Thunder also enjoy a strong upcoming stretch, as they play four up-tempo opponents. Not that Russell Westbrook needs much matchup assistance to produce elite numbers, but it helps to note the Hawks and Timberwolves are both ranked in the bottom four in defensive efficiency against point guards this season.The 76ers face an ugly stretch with just two games, but at least they are against up-tempo and soft defensive opponents. The spacing of the two games also suggests we could see Joel Embiid suit up for both contests. Both the Raptors and Hornets also face two-game slates, so streaming from these rosters will prove challenging in leagues with transaction limits.Access the downloadable forecaster chart PDF hereMatchup ratings are based on a scale from 1 (poor matchup) to 10 (excellent matchup). These are calculated using a formula that evaluates the teams year-to-date and past 10 games statistics, their opponents numbers in those categories and their performance in home/road games depending on where the game is to be played. The column to the left lists the teams total number of games scheduled, as well as home games, and lists the overall rating from 1 to 10 for that teams weekly schedule.Positional targetsThe Nets and Nuggets are two teams we want to target for point guard play. We witnessed Damian Lillard going ballistic on Denver this past Thursday night, while the Nets lead the league in pace and have proven to be soft both on the glass and in defending the paint. Facing Philadelphia is also a plus-matchup for point guards, as the 76ers rank 25th in defensive efficiency. With Jerryd Bayless out for the season, facing an offensively gifted but defensively deficient Sergio Rodriguez is a great setup for lead guards.At the two, the Kings and Knicks rank 29th and 28th, respectively, in defensive efficiency against shooting guards. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, appear uniquely soft against shooting guards. The Clippers, with J.J. Redick netting heavy minutes, have been a solid matchup at the position for some time. In the frontcourt, the Blazers remain the best matchup in the league given their lack of size, while the Lakers, Mavericks, Nets and Wizards are all favorable setups.
