2018 Final Big Sky Power Rankings

Postby JALMOND » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:15 am

What a season!

1. Eastern Washington Eagles
2. Weber State Wildcats
3. UC Davis Aggies
4. Montana State Bobcats
5. Idaho State Bengals
6. Cal Poly Mustangs
7. Montana Grizzlies
8. Northern Arizona Lumberjacks
9. Idaho Vandals
10. Portland State Vikings
11. Northern Colorado Bears
12. Southern Utah Thunderbirds
13. Sacramento State Hornets

Good luck to those Big Sky teams fortunate to make the playoffs, as well as the rest of the playoff field. This was my 15th year of doing these, and this year was perhaps the most difficult of them all.

Not that I’m going to bitch about whether we’re 7th or 6th, but I think we thrashed cal poly IN cal poly...

I would put Weber ahead of EWU due to the fact that Weber beat the Eags head to head. Oh and the fact that WSU is the #2 seed in the playoffs is another solid reason to put WSU as #1 in the power rankings. Also Montana should be lower. Much Much lower :rofl:

The Griz had a winning record. All the teams below them had losing records.

But you're not irrelevant, if it wasn't for you there wouldn't be an egriz, and if there wasn't an egriz there wouldn't be countless hours of entertaining reading material...Montana is more important to the conference than you think.

Exactly. If not for eGriz, you'd have to read, say, the Idaho message board and spend most of your time fighting the urge to douse yourself in gasoline. :?

Don't worry. Whenever you lose none of us read the board Chris made for you because no one cares.

I don't actually care if other fans visit our board or not, as for me I only go onto egriz for entertainment purposes, since it's anything but a hub for intellectual conversation. :coffee:

Hey man, visit it all you want. Just be sure to thank the horrible Griz fans for providing you with eGriz, the Weber board, CS, AGS... basically everything. Man, even when we're terrible we have to keep everything afloat apparently. You're welcome :thumb:

Nope. EWU is number 1 in power rankings, and don"t get ahead of yourself bucko, a 14-6 win over EWU in Ogden, without All-American Gage Gubrud & a young Qb starting his second game, isnt exactly "convincing." Relax & remember: EWU is big d*ck in Big Sky.

Again the game against Weber was his 3rd start as he started for Eastern last year against North Dakota :tothehand: Also Weber beat Gubrud in Cheney last year...this is no longer a viable excuse.

We aren't talking about last year, genius. We're talking about this year, and the coaches poll has EWU ahead of Weber, AFTER the game in ogden!

https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/ ... aches-poll

In other words, people in the know agree with Jalmond's Power Rankings. Now Ryan, I'm going to tell you something..... & I want you to remember it and think of this when Weber St goes down in these playoffs, okay?

You continue to claim your QB was starting in only his 2nd game...which is a lie. And you continue to mention that you were without Gubrud as if him playing would have made a huge difference when last years game in Cheney WITH Gubrud starting proved that isnt a guarantee. The Coaches can believe whatever they want, but at the end off the day the opinions that really matter was the committee's and obviously they thought Weber is better, hence getting the 2 seed.

.

More importantly in that game, we were down to our 4th and 5th string OT's. Weber's front 4 is very talented and got up field fast, disrupting the RPO. Plus you guys blitz from every position on any down. That's one of the reasons your defense is so effective and I admire the **** out of it.

It was a perfect storm coming down the Wasatch.

Both starting safeties, Mitch Fettig and Tyson Prunty were also dinged up for that game as was Kettner Kupp but our defense played well none the less.

Play that game again with a healthier o-line and more reps under EB3's belt and I like our chances.

EWU and Weber's rankings were a toss up only because of the h2h. You had a bad loss to NAU and played some relatively close games while we blew out everyone else. EWU's SoS was a little higher too. I wasn't surprised to see you get the 2 seed as the committee doesn't drill down all that deep and highly values h2h but there are 100's of people on this message board and AGS that are better at evaluating and ranking teams than the committee. Most of them had EWU ahead.

Hope we see you again in Ogden.
