  • Top 10 10/31 release

    Fyi, the FCS selection committee will release their first (and I think only) top 10 tonight at half time of the Ball State/Toledo game. It will be interesting to see where we sit right now. I'm guessing we'll come in at 7. Here's my prediction for the top 10.

    1. NDSU
    2. JMU
    3. Kennesaw
    4. Davis
    5. EWU
    6. Weber
    7. SDSU
    8. Elon
    9. Wofford
    10. JSU

    Considering NDSU will likely have the 1 seed, I'm hoping for the 6 or 7 seed come selection Sunday. Not that I don't think we can win in Fargo, it would just be so sweet to knock them off in the championship.

    I believe the Valley will have 4 in the top 10. UNI might be a bit of a reach though. SDSU will be in the top 5.
    1. North Dakota State
    2. James Madison
    3. South Dakota State
    4. Kennesaw State

    5. Illinois State
    6. UC Davis

    7. Weber State
    8. Elon
    9. UNI
    10. Delaware

      Hoo boy... the amount of MVFC bias this would take to happen and the ensuing rage from the rest of the FCS would be amazing... However, with Illinois State's loss to Missouri State (non playoff team), there's no way they are in the top 10 with 3 losses. UNI has losses to Montana and Western Illinois (potentially both non playoff teams) and 3 FCS losses total, again there's no way.

        No way IMO. ISU and UNI won’t make the top 10.

          MVFC shouldn't have more than 2, max. And it's possible they only have 1. The committee doesn't weight SoS the same way we do. I'd imagine JSU and Colgate will both make an appearance in the top 10.

          My guess:

          1. NDSU
          2. KSU
          3. Davis
          4. JMU
          5. Weber
          6. Elon
          7. Colgate
          8. SDSU
          9. Wofford
          10. JSU

          In my opinion, the 10 teams right now are:

          1. NDSU
          2. DAVIS
          3. JMU
          4. WEBER
          5. KSU
          6. SDSU
          7. DELAWARE
          8. EWU
          9. WOFFORD
          10. COLGATE

            I hit 9/10 teams and 3/10 exact spots. Not too shabby.

              8/10 for me. 3/10 exact spots. UNI didn't surprise me, but Illinois State I thought would squeeze in at 10. Maybe a little bias, but more based on their strength of schedule.

                  Looking at where things sit, it looks like realistically with winning out we probably max out at the 5 seed. I donít see us jumping most of the teams above us outside of Elon and Weber, both of whom I think are pretty high to begin with. Even if JMU loses to Towson I doubt they drop that far, people nationally are still viewing them as the JMU of the prior two years IMO. Also, if Towson were to win out I wouldnít be surprised to see them jump over us with the wins they would have.

                  Thereís just no way to justify a .500 team in the top ten, SOS or no. Thatís just a whole lot of bias.

                    Sign me up for the 6 or 7 seed, please (ideally 6). Would like to avoid 8 for sure. If we can't get the 4 seed, I would rather get the 6 or 7 seeds than the 5 seed if we're going to be on the road either way. The chances of the 2 or 3 seed losing their first game will be greater than NDSU losing in their first game.

                      Maybe Iím just batspit crazy but I kinda want a crack at ndsu again. I donít think we win necessarily, but if we get healthy before that game........I think itís more because that would be the sweetest feeling W weíve ever had. I was pretty disappointed that it was JMU who ended their run and not us tbh. That being said, getting sent to the JMU side of the bracket has its own delicious revenge possibilities as well. Iím so torn

                        What would be sweeter? Going into their place and knocking them off or doing it in Frisco? I chose Frisco, because that means we actually made it to Frisco for once at least.

                          In Fargo. Couple of reasons. If we do it in Fargo we should be able to win in Frisco against whoever we play. Second reason is we would get to be the ones who stopped one of their best teams ever from making it to the championship game. Third reason is I think the loss would hurt more at home for them than in Frisco, and we owe them a lot of fan emotional trauma from over the years. Last reason is tickets to Frisco and lodging will be a million times cheaper and more accessible.

                          That said, an all xDSU chipper would be LEGENDARY and the tailgate would be INSANE. Neither one is a bad option.

                            You make a solid argument. I love factoring in which one would hurt worse for them and inflict the most emotional trauma, LOL.
