    FCS Playoff Records by Conf: 2011-18

    On the MVFC thread, I said I would pull the playoff record results by conference. Let me first point out that I purposely selected 2011-18 because that is period subsequent to the Colonial's domination of FCS landscape for the period 2010 & prior going back to 2003 .. they clearly dominated that era. My point in doing this is to shed some light on fact that MVFC continues to get short end of stick. And the playoff results in the last 8 years bear that out ... even removing NDSU from our results.

    My thanks to Clenz for the running start with his sspreadsheet for 2014 & prior.

    Below are playoff records for 2011-18 by conference, with MVFC split into NDSU and "not NDSU". I also split the conferences into Pools A & B based on # of games played ... meaning conferences that have recently relied more on autobids would fall into Pool B. I then compare Pool A and B, including further splitting Pool A into Pool A exc NDSU and MVFC.

    I would then point on that MVFC excl NDSU has outperformed every other conference over this period with a .553 win %. Note, if I removed MVFC head-to-head playoff games, our win % would improve to about .600 against all othe conferences. Colonial was not far behind at .515, but imagine that number if we removed one of their best teams from their results. So the notion that MVFC is Paul McCartney and the Wings .. well, the Wings are doing quite well on their own since 2011.

    But the larger point is how on earth did we only get 3 teams into playoff in 2018 ... the FCS selection committee reverted to their old ways 2013 & prior, when MVFC was routinely screwed out of playoff bids. And if ever a conference deserved 6 teams, who wuoldn't assum MVFC 2014 should have had 6 .. but no Colonial got that distinction in 2018 and went 3-6. Then the other insult in 2018, 2 teams with identical 6-4 D-I records from Southland got bids over a 6-4 MVFC team .. on what planet does that make any sense .. Southland had been the 4th bext conference the last several years .. yet got 3 teams just like MVFC ... 2 of which were 6-4, while ISUb 6-4 stayed home.

    Sp never mind NDSU domination, the rest of MVFC flat out has deserved more bids and better seeds. 2018 took a step backwards. Quite simply, our playoff record would tend towards the average if the committee was more objectively considering MVFC teams for playoff bids and giving us more at large bids ... the results below are all the evidence one should need.

    Sincerely,

    One of The Wings
