Ferrum Football ranked 86th in the Nation

Out of 238 teams, Ferrum has been ranked 86th by D3 football.com, according to their release of Kickoof 2009, an online overview of all D3 teams. While this ranking to me is somewhat lower than I originally expected, changes to the Panthers roster have probably relegated their position somewhat. D3 football.com has predicted a 5-5 year for the Panthers, resulting in being one of three teams tied for third.place in the conference.

The D3.com predictions for the rest of the conference are below:
