You're assuming Fordham gets left out with one loss?

Fordham's opponents this year have a cumulative win-loss percentage of something in the range of 41%

(that puts them 116 out of 124 FCS teams)

I see SUU on the list, their schedule is a little lackluster but I liked what I saw last week.

Yeah, but with only one loss and an FBS win (yeah, I know, a really bad FBS win...), I have to put them in well above the host of 4-loss teams that will still make it.

Three SoCon teams this year and just one from the Big South that dominated it? Seriously?

Fordham's getting in. They have an outside shot at a seed, too.

SCSU is almost certainly in, as well.

YSU ain't safe given how they closed the season.

Had a pretty tough schedule near the end of the season with EWU, NAU and Montana State on the list. Thankfully we won the games we did (including an FBS win) so we should still get in.

Not trying to sound like sour grapes because my team is out, but this looks like one of the weakest fields in years. NDSU fans must be salivating.

IMO, Fordham is in and SUU is out.

I get what you're asking but honestly Lafayette is lucky 24. I think they are worse than the NEC or Pioneer champs. That's hard to believe.

I'd put SHSU in over TSU and JSU and consider them a push with Chatty and Samford

The locks for at-larges are Towson, Montana, NAU, McNeese, and SDSU.

That leaves the following teams competing for 8 spots.

SUU
YSU
UNI
Samford
Chatty
SHSU
TSU
JSU
Chuck South
Liberty
UNH

Looking at it this way, I'd throw out CSU, Liberty, and JSU.

(am I missing anyone?)

Looks good to me.

It's hard for me to go 'all-in' with Tenn St, but folks seem to like 'em this year.

I think The Committee may look at UTC as more 'bubble' than the rest of us ... their SoS turned out to be really weak.
