So this is something that has probably been discussed, re-discussed, and just for hecks sake re-hashed, well I have been thinking about this-with the recent defections from FCS to FBS of some powerhouse programs has the EC fallen behind the WC? After 8 straight EC championships the WC has claimed 3 straight with no EC team getting beyond the semi’s. The balance of power took a major shift west when perennial powerhouses Georgia Southern and App State announced their impeding departure from FCS, especially with recent resurgence of programs such as UNI, Montana, and Eastern Washington, not to mention the appearance of 2-time defending champ NDSU. This case was very obvious that the WC is superior to the EC when only one team in the top ten was an EC school. The NCAA may have been ahead of the game in moving the national title game away from the East coast and into a more neutral location. Feel free to post your thoughts.

Alright here are my playoff predicts:(top four are seeds-everyone else just who is in)
1.North Dakota State
16.Sam Houston State
Well this is turning out to be an interesting season boys and girls, but I am going to focus on a couple of surprise teams for the year. While a few weeks back I gave the kiss of death to the Citadel bulldogs maybe I can reverse that curse today.
First I have to give a shout out to the bison of NDSU, and as much as it pains me to say they have proven why they are the best team in FCS by absolutly stomping the then-no.3 team Youngstown state in the dome in Fargo, this team seems highly unstoppable at this point, however we are only halfway into the season so you never know.
Now onto the surprises, First the bulldogs of Samford I tread lightly as their only “big” win on the season was against the citadel, and they got stomped by a decent Georgia Southern Team. As long as I am on the SOCON track, these next few weeks in the SOCON will determin ALOT as the top 3 teams(GA southern, Wofford, Samford and a down App State Team, all play basiclly round robin the next few weeks, My guess, Wofford comes out and shows that they are the class of the leage, going on the road to beat GA southern and App State)
Cal Poly-I say they are a surprise because well they have a high chance of ending the season with only one loss (@EWU) but when you compare thier schedule it isn’t all that tough, with no Montana State or Montana. However they could be a dark horse in a Big Sky sans a traditional powerhouse Montana.
Who are your Darkhorses this season.
