    I'm really interested in what a potential second round matchup might be for us as well. If UND and UNI make the field, I'd say there's a good chance they get paired up in the first round with the winner to Brookings. But outside of that, I think we would likely see some eastern and/or southern team in our bracket. The non-seeds are going to have lots of Southland/CAA teams, in addition to probably two OVCs and maybe two Big South teams. I'd put my money on us getting a Maine/Wofford/Semo type team up here in round 2 (assuming we dont get UND) if we can beat USD.

    This year in the FCS, I think its

    NDSU

    JMU/UM/WEBER/SDSU/SAC


    ISUr/UNI/Montana State/NOVA/Wofford




    Everyone else.


    Point being, I think the first round or two of the playoffs should present us with some very winnable games.

    Agreed with your team tiers. I can't wait to see the bracket.

    Regarding the easier to beat them in Fargo or Frisco talk... I've got an argument for each side.

    Easier to beat them in Fargo? Are you kidding me. We have to travel, stay in a hotel, eat a catered meal, wait around all day in a hotel room on gameday killing time. They get to have no bus time, sleep in their own beds, eat a pregame meal where they always do, relax in their own homes/apartments/dorms the day of the game. They get to play in front of their own fans, don't have to pack their own travel bags full of equipment, etc.

    Easier to beat them in Frisco? Are you kidding me. We both have to travel. Spend a week or so there. Attend pregame festivities (I am assuming there is some sort of team vs team chicken wing eating challenge, hospital tour, etc. that all goes on throughout the week). They would be used to it all and treating it like any other game and not thinking about the extra curriculars that could throw them off. We will be all big and googly eyed taking in all the extra curriculars and not as focused on the real reason why we are there.

    Lot easier for me...be in the NDSU bracket, go to Fargo, Bison are a 2 TD favorite...we have beat them ONCE in D-1 days...come home.

    Be in the OTHER bracket, beat every other team and get to Frisco (if we can't do this, we go home; or win those games and wind up in Frisco, where we are not in the Dome, play NDSU, unless someone else beats them. Result, we are either #1 in FCS and national champions, or, worst case scenario, we are runner-ups and #2 in the nation. I like this scenario a whole lot more.

    For the sake of just playing new teams in the playoffs too, I just want to avoid Fargo. And I'd rather get beat 55-0 in Texas in the championship than lose in the semis in Fargo.

    Also, we have some unfinished business in both Harrisonburg and Missoula, and the chance to re-write those chapters in Jackrabbit football would be hard to pass up. Especially JMU. Ever since our game there in 17, there's been this idea that they are the "other" elite program on the country. Its them and NDSU, and then everyone else. All this, despite the fact that we've played in the same number of semi finals as they have this decade, more quarterfinals, and haven't missed the playoffs since 2011. I've rewatched that 2017 game a few times. That game was close at half despite our incredible negative turnover margin. If we play a clean game, we're playing in Frisco that year imo. But we didn't, and the rest is history. I'd like to revise the narrative in Virginia this year. If we can't get a 4 and host a quarterfinal, I want the 6 or 7. Especially if the 3 is Sacramento State.

    JMU has several Frisco appearances in recent history and 1 championship after going through Fargo. We’ve had more consistency but they’ve shown to have a higher ceiling. Nobody is the other elite team in the country. The Bison have taken everything the past decade aside from JMUs 1 championship.

    I would put JMU a thin slice above everyone aside from NDSU. Especially being that they’ll have home field throughout which they’ve earned by going undefeated in fcs.

    I'm in the "to be the best you have to beat the best" school. I don't care where.

    is
    The ISU QB took high snap and got hurt bad in the last game against Mo State. Change the complexion completely. A higher seed maybe if we win today.
