    So if Nick Saban suddenly resigns this summer we will know why.

    PS, I was rooting for El Cid in both games and was happy for them.

    That was a good day. Pig fans jumping off bridges. Fires set to stores. Cats and dogs sleeping together. Earthquakes. Famine. Desolation of desolations.

    Bear fans laughed.

    Talk about a team that doesn't belong in the SEC.

    WIU at Illinois should be on this list

    Last year, Illinois went 2-10 with a only 3-pt win over Ball State and 13-pt win over Western Kentucky. At the end of the season, Sagarin had the Illini ranked #126 in all of DI, below teams like Akron, UNLV, and UMass. In fact, by ranking alone, they would have been 8th in the MVFC, ahead of only SIU, MSU, and INSU. Most sites I've looked at aren't projecting U of I to improve much, if any, this year vs last year.

    Last year, WIU went 8-4 with regular season losses to USD, NDSU, and SDSU (all playoff teams) and then by 2 points at Weber State in the playoffs. At the end of the season, Sagarin had the Leathernecks ranked #82 in all of DI. How things will change from last year to this year remains to be seen, since it's harder to find predictions for FCS teams this far out. WIU has also beaten FBS teams in each of the last two years (although not P5 teams).

    If the game was played at the end of last season, Massey's matchup predictor has WIU a likely 27-24 winner, with about a 59% win probability.

    I'm not saying we will win, or that we'll even be favored, but I think the matchup is close enough to at least deserve a mention.

    Almost, but I think the toucan flew in.

    I know this is an article about FCS taking on the bigger of the big boys, but the MWC sure thinks it is the P6.

    WIU can definitely win if they’re as good as last year. I’d say WIU wins 31-28.

    Anyone want to bite on UNH over Colorado? Would have been a good candidate for this particular list.

    A couple of years ago for sure. But ive seen the Buffs in person a few times last 2 seasons and they've turned a small corner or 2. Have gotten much better at developing talent.
