    Re: Worst team to make the playoffs?

    I vote Monmouth from last year. They had just lost by 31 the last week of the regular season and must have fizzled out from a good start to the season. I dont know if they had any injuries or anything....?
    I watch some of the UNI Vs. Monmouth game and UNI couldn't have beat them any worse. It was 46-0 in the third quarter and they were just blowing them off the ball.

    It legit was like watching a high school team play against UNI. Size, speed, play calling (that’s saying something against UNI), etc. were all as por as I’d ever seen from an opponent outside those winless ISUb teams.

    So Nicholls this year or the SHSU team that advanced in 13?

    And yet Monmouth ran over and around Patriot Leaguers Lehigh, Lafayette, Holy Cross and Bucknell last season. Lehigh, because of the historically bad defense, was worse than Monmouth last year. So if you vote for Monmouth then it has to be Lehigh.

    Monmouth 31 Lafayette 12
    Monmouth 46 Lehigh 27
    Monmouth 35 Bucknell 13
    Monmouth 48 Holy Cross 36

    Don't think you should be considered the worst playoff team if you actually win a playoff game.
    First they came for the journalists and I said nothing. Then no one could find out who they came for after that.

    Re: Worst team to make the playoffs?

    Sorry but Monmouth is nowhere close to worst playoff team ever.

    They DEFINITELY weren't the worst team in the field in 2018 -- Lehigh, please take your trophy.
    They DEFINITELY weren't the second worst in the field -- Monmouth beats Central Connecticut by double digits if they play head to head.
    They MIGHT not have been the third worst in the field -- Nicholls was rated lower by Sagarin even after the massacre in Cedar Falls.

    The Hawks were overmatched by a Valley team on the road halfway across the country. Blowouts happen, especially when a team becomes demoralized ten minutes into what they immediately realize will be their last game, knowing they can't stop their opponent.

    SHSU in 2009 lost to Montana 54-0 in the quarters. Why? Montana is a TOUGH place to play in the postseason, not because a historically bad team was on the field.

    The Holy Cross game was not as close as the final score indicated. We benefited from converting 40+ yard Hail Mary's both at the end of the first half and end of regulation. Only time I've ever seen or heard of that happening in a game.

    a couple of your 1 blowout and out LU teams are certainly worthy of consideration

    Lehigh's one-and-done team this year probably gets my vote.

    I actually don't think Lehigh had ever been blown out in their first playoff game prior to the 2016 debacle against UNH. I don't think Lehigh was THAT bad in '16 (they were actually favored to win the game they lost 64-28) but certainly foreshadowed the total lack of any defense this season.

    I cannot think of a playoff team that Lehigh 2017 could beat. Maybe Dayton from a few years. Even Lafayette 2013 would have ripped us I think with Reed at his peak. Not sure how many awful MEAC or OVC teams there have been the past decade, maybe we could outscore them. Maybe not.
