As we've seen many times, number of scholarships does not mean a better team or a win.
And that works both ways which I’d like to think is the reason the committee now recognizes DII wins.

It's also because most of the committee is too lazy to pay attention to the actual opponents. Not joking. There are a LOT more folks here and AGS that know a ton more than the committee members. :nod:

Yep. They see KSU's shiny 10-2 record and go "pick them! pick them!" without delving into who those 10 wins were actually against.

KSU runs an excellent offense and can play physical football. They do what good teams should: beat inferior opponents by a lot of points. You can only play in your conference and the teams they put in front of you. In my opinion there is no need to exclude them on the subjective. They are a winning team

Yeah, it's not KSU's fault they play TWO NAIA teams in addition to their soft Big South schedule. :roll:

Play a better schedule or run the risk of people dismissing you.

Sunday 12:30 PM ECB on ESPNU is the 1 hr selection show. Odd, because it used to be on around 11:00 or 11:30 AM, and only a half hr. Hr is nice, more coverage, but that overlaps with the 1 PM NFL games..

Won't mind the hour if they still release the bracket in the first 5 minutes.

So what? KSU is taking care of business. Why make excuses for a team that's on the bubble when KSU has clearly qualified as an FCS contender.

No 2nd place team from that conference should ever be considered a bubble team. THAT’S the observation.

KSU is ranked high enough in the polls I looked at to easily qualify for the 26 team playoff field.

All the polls had Sac higher coming in, though. The polls aren't supposed to be used, of course, but the committee's thinking will likely be similar.

It's possible, but with the head to head win for Weber i think it pushes them ahead.

Well, maybe, but the blowout loss to Montana was recent & Sac blew out Montana. Sac was also the only team to have a winning record against the rest of the top-5 in the Big Sky standings.

I think the fact that we played all three, and went 2-1 will help. But either way, will it matter?

Sorry, new to this whole "playoffs" thing. :)

Not making excuses and if we get woofed that's the breaks and I'll understand. But we'd pimp slap KSU now, along with half of the playoff field.

Question: Are ANY of the HBCUs playing ball with the playoffs? Or are they BOTH out for the bowl payday?
