    Beware, SXU is perenially ranked in the NAIA polls. If I were to rank the best college football programs in the whole of Chicagoland...

    SXU
    North Central
    Northwestern
    Wheaton
    IWU
    Chicago and the rest

    (You can probably swap the first and the second spots)

    Oh, I am by no means discounting the capabilities of SXU. My displeasure rests solely on the fact that it doesn't count as a DI game for us. So, assuming we are able to fill out our schedule with an FBS team, we'll have our 8 games against MVFC teams, one FBS game (likely loss), the game against SXU (which doesn't "count" if we win it), and the game at Northern Arizona (we beat them this year, but they're a good team and it'll be at their place next year).

    If we beat SXU and NAU and lose our FBS game, we can drop maybe 2 MVFC games to finish essentially 7-3 (technically 8-3, but as we know, non-D1 don't count). That's in a year where we play at the Fargodome, at the UNIDome, at ISU's Hancock Stadium, plus SDSU and everyone else. You essentially have to be a Top 10-caliber team to go through all that and only lose two (or fewer games). We might be there next year, I don't know at this point, but I don't like that we don't get that extra game as more of a "leeway". As for the precedent being set for a 6-win team to make the playoffs, last year we had beaten 3 other playoff teams, had technically finished 3rd in the conference, and had (according to Massey) the #1 toughest schedule in the FCS. With a NAIA team on our schedule, and having swapped out Missouri State for Youngstown State this and next year (we didn't play MSU the last two years, which is why we were slightly ahead of UNI for SoS), I don't think we can count on SoS as a factor.

    Obviously I'd prefer to just win 8+ games and make it a non-issue, but you just never know with the MVFC...some years we just all beat each other up and end up on the bubble.
