    I don't see JSU or Wofford getting left out at 8-3. The playoff committee is not going to put 2 7-4 CAA/MVFC teams over 8-3 JSU/Wofford (especially not Wofford with a top 25 win). They aren't going to make it the MVFC/CAA open.
    If UNI and WIU win out they will both be 7-4 and most likely will be in. But... the way this season has been going it wouldn't surprise me if either would drop a game down the stretch. Bubble teams from other conferences should be hoping that would be the case. Both ISU teams also have a chance to get to 7-4 but both would have only 6 DI wins.
    If I was a betting man I would put money on the Valley not getting more than 3 teams in the playoffs. It's been that kind of year, lots of teams stuck in the middle.

    Let me rephrase my original point:

    If the second place CAA/MVFC team is 7-4, they will get in over an 8-3 Southland/Southern/JSU. But not the 4th place CAA/MVFC team. That's not to say that there won't be multiple teams from the CAA/MVFC at 7-4 getting in, but that you will not see more than 1-2 and not the 8-3 teams.

    Here's another thing to consider:

    The playoff committee isn't going to sit there like many CAA/MVFC fans and think "how many CAA and MVFC teams can we stuff into the bracket before we even have to look at those plebs!?”

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    Exactly. Leaving McNeese last year at 9-2 was an outlier, especially since they didn't have a good win, but usually you'll see the decent conferences get the benefit of the doubt.

    They haven't don't that in previous years either when the CAA and MVFC made up half the at-large field. Teams from those two conferences just generally have the highest SOS so they get more leeway in terms of W/L record and therefore are most likely to get a good number of at-large selections. This year is no different in that regard.

    Yep, it's possible the MVFC only gets 2 bids if the conference goes nuclear on itself in the last 2 weeks.

    Should be a crazy weekend ahead, as pointed out in another thread 23 of the top 30 teams in the AGS poll play on the road this weekend

    Count me as one who wants to go to seeding everyone and letting it play out.
    FU all the time.

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the league’s roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    Nope. I think that is a stupid idea. Actually, if I were king of the world, everyone would get their name put in a hat and matchups would be randomly picked. If a team is truly the champion they have to be able to beat everyone, so does it matter, really? I know most would hate that, but I like the random nature of it. But I hate regionalization more. The top 8 can be designated still, but the rest of the bracket should be random.
