The fact that UNH remains ranked is a joke.  Their FBS win is overless 0-5 GA Southern.  They lost to Holy Cross - a 2 win FCS school. They also lost to SBU while we remain unranked (or ranked 26th depending on how you see it). UNH has yet to beat a team with greater than 2 wins thus far this season.
The boys have to just keep on rolling.  Cannot afford to wind up with same record as UNH or Nova at end of year - both are darlings of the FCS polls and when it comes to FCS playoff seeding. JMU, Richmond and Elon already appear headed for playoffs.  Can't count on CAA getting 6 spots.  And Delaware also is coming on strong.


Clearly, SBU is off everybody radar in the CAA and in the FCS poling.... All they can do now is just keeping winning. 7 wins wont get them the playoffs, that's for certain..

one spot out of the rankings: http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/fcs-coaches-poll

18   New Hampshire   191   4-2   12
19   McNeese   189   5-1   21
20   Nicholls   127   5-2   23
21   Western Carolina   125   5-2   25
22   Northern Arizona   102   4-2   24
23   Weber State   90   4-2   16
24   Illinois State   79   4-2   15
25   Montana   58   5-2   NR
Others receiving votes: Stony Brook (50),

Talk about snubbing their noses at SB. WOW!!! You beat a formerly #12 rank team and you dont move up in rankings??? Clearly SBU is off everybody radar!!

The FCS has us at 22 and UNH at 18, go figure.

No way did they have 12,000 at that game. I dont think they had 8,000. Seats empty all over. And to respond to an earlier post, someone needs to tell the DJ in the booth to stop playing music when SB is on offense.

I've always question the attendance at the homecoming games in the past. But for the sake SB football, I'll go with what they say. SH has big expectations for this program..

Everybody knows the coaches (or whoever the hell actually votes in these things) don't actually watch the games. I think once the committee sits down to decide the seeding for the playoffs and whatnot, we'll get a more fair shake. The Massey composite has us at 17 and New Hampshire down at 45 lmao. The computers look at us much more favorably and those will likely be taken into consideration come playoff time. I wouldn't freak out yet.

7 wins may not get us in, but perhaps we wouldn't deserve to be in with 7 wins. We avoid JMU, Elon, and Villanova this year, so winning the Richmond game becomes more crucial than it otherwise probably would be. Montana is an FCS blue blood and who knows how many the MVFC will get into the playoff. I've always said though that 8 wins will get us a spot and 7 will keep us in the conversation for one. The Richmond game may decide our season. Win it, and there's no reason we can't win out, finish 9-2, and potentially get a bye. Lose it, and who knows. We should at least finish with a winning record since Wagner is still on the schedule.

is it fair to say that there is more to it than just the W.

meaning, if it's a close call for a berth, doesnt it matter how we beat teams.

Beginning next year SBU, Delaware, Villanova and Towson are bracketed together so these teams must play each other going forward.

Is there a source on this? More insight into how the CAA comes up with the football schedules would be nice.

The conference rebalanced   the teams placing us with Delaware , Towson and Villanova .  We have the CAA North with UNH , Albany, Maine and URI and the CAA  South with W&M. Elon , Richmond and JMU . We will continue to play Albany  as our rival team each season as  we do now.   We are the CAA I guess  Mid Atlantic Division .

The CAA wanted to bracket teams by where they are for travel consideration the remainder of who they play will be done randomly. I also think that Albany will remain on our schedule

This was put out prior to the 2017 season by the CAA

Ah, I see. Didn't think that would matter all that much given we're talking football and the CAA is quite compact geographically in the grand scheme of things. Our team really doesn't need to fly to games all that often anyhow. Compare our footprint to something like CUSA which has to fly all their teams (not just football) all over the place on a weekly basis and we really don't have it bad at all.
