I-AA Game of the Week - WEEK THIRTEEN

Post by 89Hen »

By my estimate, the field is pretty well set, just jockeying for seeds at this point.

Really a dud of a week IMO. Can't recall a final week with honestly so little on the line.

The only team I see with a chance of playing their way out is Nicholls if they get boat raced by SELA (can still get in).

The only team I can find that could play their way in is SIU with a win over NDSU (doubtful).

First time in 3 years the Griz/Scat game hasn't been for a playoff spot.

I picked the Bobcat game. SIU has been playing great, might be a good game as well.

This year's Cat/Griz is for seedings instead of making the playoffs. Although the Griz have a good shot at getting seeded regardless of whether they win or lose.

There are around 8 teams vying for the last 4 at larges. I don’t expect you to know this.

I know a ton of Griz fans and a few cat fans and I've only heard it spoken Griz/cat on here. As an impartial judge I'm going to have to lay down a ruling............................................................................................

Why would you want to mix your jizz with scat? Is that some weird Montana tradition? ;)

This may be SIU's play-in game, and need to keep it close. SIU does have a FBS win and FBS loss, and a win over Tennessee Martin, that could get them in ahead of Marty. Other 3 losses are to SEMO, SDSU and Ill St.

Please provide the list. I only see... UND/Nicholls and SIU with a miracle win (as I mentioned).

Win and in (next opponent, SoS, best wins (.500 or better teams in Massey Top 60, or FBS)

Albany 7-4 @ 5-6 Stony Brook / 3 / UNH, Towson
Towson 7-4 vs 4-6 Elon / 12 / Maine, Citadel
Furman VS Point (DII) / 41 / Chattahooga
Tennessee Martin 7-4 @ 5-5 Kentucky / 47 /
UNI 7-4 VS 1-10 WIU / 4 / Illinois State
SIU 7-4 VS 11-0 NDSU / 28 / UTM, UMASS.
Nicholls 7-4 @ 7-3 SELA / 48 / McNeese, UCA,
SELA 7-3 VS Nicholls / 53 / Central Arkansas



Seventeen locks right now but assuming Furman beats Point that's 18 locks. Assuming UT Martin loses to Kentucky, they are out. SELA VS NIcholls adds one to the locks, making it 19. UNI beating WIU is also a relatively safe bet so call it 20 locks.

Remaining Bubble for four spots based on probable outcomes from this week's games:

KSU 10-2 (close to being a lock but there's precedent for them being not).
SIU 7-5 (No bad losses, bad how much does the committee value the UMASS win?)
Maine 7-5 (Would close on a 5 game win streak, strong SoS, no. bad losses)
The Citadel (FBS win better than UMASS but bad loss to VMI)
Loser of SELA-NIcholls 7-4 or 7-5 (lack of OOC quality wins JSU might be viewed as one for SELA)
McNeese 7-5 (Lost h2h to Nicholls but beat SELA and has a slightly better SoS than both)
UND 7-4 (Solid SoS, but loss to EWU. How much does the committee value the Davis and SHSU wins?)
EWU 7-5 (4 game win streak, highest SoS of this group, bad loss to Idaho, only decent win UND)

Any upsets in the win and in group muddy things further but this group may have an upset or two as well

You're really reaching on some of these to make it look like there's a lot on the line this week. I stand by my statement of the worst last week I can remember.

It's admittedly a weird year where there's very few quality wins and h2h matchups between the at large hopefuls. Last year, two 6-win teams got in and UIW and Lamar were surprises. That might become a trend with the Southland and OVC improving a little while the SoCon continues to be down a little. Hence the reach. No one saw those Southland teams getting in.

But I'm ok with new blood getting in. The opening Saturday with 8 games all televised is like Christmas.

I like football.
