    We could probably start a thread on this just with UNH examples.

    Helps having your boy on the selection committee. Last season it was over 7-4 Delaware. I thought neither team deserved to go, but UNH was less deserving than UD. Your Towson example is more egregious. All to keep their phony playoff streak* alive!

    I wonder if the spin machine go into full gear this season if they win out to 5-6 !! LOL!!!
    But we beat JMU...
    But we finished with 4 straight wins....
    But we have a phony, propped-up playoff streak* to preserve...

    Why not just allow 8 teams in this year? After 8 (which may be a stretch) not may worthy of a playoff bid.

    This would be one of the worst years for that. Youíll have several unseeded 7-4 or better teams that could make a run. Nova did it in 2010 at 7-4 beating #3 seed SFA and #2 App State on the road before losing late to EWU in the semiís.

    Absolutelty, if there has ever been a year for an unseeded team to make a deep run, this looks like it could be it. The amount of chaos in the teams that appear to be seeds that has happened this year, nothing would surprise me short of San Diego upsetting ndsu in Fargo somehow.

    Any precedence that our AGS knowledge base can remember for a situation like this?
    I have a solution. If it comes down to WIU and MSU, make NCA&T stay home and let two real teams from good conferences into the playoffs. NC A&T has played no one since their first two games and the MEAC is trash. If you can't win the MEAC then you don't deserve a bid.
