    So you're saying that a 9-2 Lumberjack team should get a bye over an undefeated Fordham team that has beaten Villanova and an FBS team on the road?

    I will give you Chattanooga and probably Charleston Southern, but not the others for now. Maybe Youngstown if they lose to ND St. Coastal did lose to CSU but it was on the road, and they have three other solid road wins.

    Don't fool yourself - your resume is not better than most of these teams. It may be on par, but is not better. The Big Sky has their fair share of bad teams.

    I can make an argument that the Big Sky is only the 5th best conference this year, from top to bottom.

    Top 4 of Big Sky would be undefeated with Fordham's schedule. But I will give them credit for Villanova win. They are a definite seed.

    YSU's schedule? Three jokes OOC, clobbered in FBS game, and then squeaking through MVFC, which is no better, once you get beyond NDSU, than the BSC.

    What solid road wins does Coastal have? You counting Liberty, or SCSU, or EKU?

    You can make that argument, but it doesn't mean you'd be right.

    You can argue that the sky is green, and grass is blue, but again, you'd lose

    maybe true but I'm guessing none of these teams would do better with NAU's schedule and at least a couple would have lost to Montana, Cal Poly, or both.

    The Missouri Valley is the best conference in FCS. UNI is nearly in last place, but they won @ Iowa St and thrashed McNeese St. top to bottom it's unmatched. The Big Sky has some bad teams at the bottom.

    Yes, I am counting all 3 of those as solid road wins for Coastal.

    2013 is the worst year for the Big Sky since 2007.

    A healthy UNI is no where near the bottom of the MVFC...sadly that have been the case the last 6 weeks

    UNI - if they hadn't had the injury bug, would be a seed, likely. But they did - that is part of the game.

    If those are solid road wins, then so are Sac State, UC-Davis and Cal Poly.

    Plus, Coastal doesn't have any wins PERIOD as good as NAU over Montana. Hell, South Dakota is a better win than anything on Coastal's schedule.

    Not easy in the MV or BSC, and very dependent on your OOC schedule, but easier to get to 8 wins in the BSC and you'll pay less of a physical toll getting there
