NDSU is who we thought they were, after playing a creampuff schedule so far the Bizon beat a good-looking Montana team. Looks like the Valley title still goes through Fargo. We Also learned the MVFC >Bigsky, and that EWU doesn’t need to play defense, question is when they run into a team that DOES, what happens? We also learned boys and girls moving to the sun belt yes it gets you 20 extra scholarships, but you have to play on Thursday to be on National TV. This week we will learn about JMU and Deleware, WIU and SIU, UND and Montana State-especially if they can rebound from the heartbreaker against EWU. Have a good weekend

Alright here we go the reason we are named for what we are. the Championship playoffs:
Here are my thoughts-Patriot(lehigh) enjoy sitting at home you can’t lose by 25 to a 5-6 team and expect to make the playoffs.
Chuck South-schedule better AND go 10-3 and we’ll talk. UNI has an open date next year, Troy Dannen’s # is online.
First four out-
Here they are:(in no particular order)
EWU-Big Sky AQ
Montana=-Big Sky AL
Coastal Carolina-Big South AQ
NAU-Big Sky AL
Tn ST-OVC AL
SUU-Big Sky AL
Lafayette(I hope they send you to NDSU)-Patriot Auto
Sacred Heart-NEC Auto
Bethune Cookman-MEAC auto
Feel free to comment/I am open to discussion, I will post pics in the AM
EDIT:Dumping the third OVC bid(Jacksonville State) for a fourth MVC bid(yes call me a homer) Here’s the reason, there are not many teams(except maybe the top 5/6) that would take UNI’s schedule and NOT have struggles, especially with an FBS win and three OT losses. (16 points and we are #1 and undefeated) The pieces are for the most part back in place for the Panthers(only Sawyer and Farley still out) and this team looks very good, call me a homer, but I think the conference strength helps as well.
Well folks, what a great few weeks of football. In the span of the last three weeks three top-five teams have been knocked off. So really who is fit to challenge NDSU for the National Title? UNI played close with them, but then dropped an egg against a better-than their record SIU. Towson has struggled with its colonial brethren. It looks like a potential re-re-match of SHSU vs NDSU may be in the works as SHSU drubbed then no.2 EWU, however SHSU struggled against a Lamar team that has of yet been unimpressive. While NDSU pulled it out against UNI it appears that yes they can be beat, but will a team put together a complete game and take the W from the Bison? I know that this year is going to remain very interesting when it comes to the playoffs, hold onto your hats lets have some fun.
So its week 6 and we know a heck of a lot more from week 5. Gardner webb beat their d2 pretty handly, we will reserve judgment till after this week. I want Saturday to be here so I can watch football and drink beer.
As it is picks this week, last week we went 2-3(freaking bigsky)
This week we have a lot of good action:
#1 NDSU vs #4 UNI-UNI with David Johnson leaping over several defenders to convert a game-winning tw-point conversion as the game ends 15-14. Defense, and whoever has the ball last keys to the game.
#22 UNH vs #2 Towson, I have been a Towson doubter for the most of the season, yes that conneticut win was ok, but its looking a lot like UNI’s win over ISU(FCS over crappy FBS team) this game I think will show how good of a team Towson is. Towson 23-14.
Southern Illinois at #9 SDSU-in Carbondale the egyptaion flying dogs who eat children win, since its in Brookings SDSU 28-24.
#20 Lehigh vs. #8 Fordham-
Fordham 35-21 Not sure but Fordham is playing VERY well.
That’s it boys and girls, have fun be safe and we will see you next week.
