    Worst team to make the playoffs?

    Since I started all these threads technically with the Best team in history, I feel like making another one. Obviously we have the Worst champion thread, but this one is about the worst team to have just made the playoffs. I’d say Lehigh’s 5-6 team last year was pretty bad.

    Watching Monmouth at UNI in the playoffs last year was interesting. Monmouth was crap and should not have been in.

    Re: Worst team to make the playoffs?

    I don't think there's been a unit that has ever been part of the playoffs worse than Lehigh's defense last year. Lehigh was the unusual case of being a preseason Top 20 team, being picked to win the PL/return to the playoffs but ultimately sucked (even though certain goals were met) due to a horrific D. The Mountain Hawk offense had a 1st team All-American RB, an elite WR in Troy Pelletier, a killer #2 WR in Gatlin Casey, a top tier FCS QB in Brad Mayes and a very good OL. But, again, the defense was a complete embarrassment.

    2013 Lafayette (5-6) deserves serious consideration
    2006 Lafayette (6-5) wasn't very good either

    There have been some bad MEAC and PFL teams to make it.

    Both 5-6 PL champs make a strong claim for the title. There have been some very bad MEAC, OVC, Southland, PFL, and Big South teams as well.

    GFCC against Richmond has to be up there somewhere.

    I think they were the best 5-6 team. Good offense.

    Re: Worst team to make the playoffs?

    In no particular order:

    1) Lafayette 2006 (6-5) -- to give them some credit, I seem to remember they at least had a pulse against eventual runner-up UMASS in the first round.
    2) Lafayette 2013 (5-6) -- IIRC, they managed to somehow draw Fordham, Colgate and Lehigh when their QB's were hurt that week. UNH just scored again...
    3) Every PFL rep excluding San Diego the past two years
    4) Morgan State 2014 (7-5) -- lost to a dumpster fire Holy Cross team, coached by Crusader alum Lee Hull
    5) Wagner & Colgate 2013 -- up there for worst pillow-fight in FCS playoff history

    MAYBE true that they shouldn't have been in but I wouldn't put them among the worst playoff teams ever. Give UNI some credit -- playing in the dome not an easy task. Maybe chalk up the blowout to Monmouth experiencing some stage fright.

    The D2 team across the river from Fargo would have beaten Monmouth and probably the D3 team that was very good in Moorhead also. Oh ya, UNI took their foot off the pedal also.
