Very Crappy bracket. Going to JMU the second round. No bye week. That sucks. I thought our team did enough to deserve it.

The average IQ on the Committee has to be under 100! Football coaches doing what they do best and thatís being dumb!

Because of proximity - Elon is in North Carolina and Furman is in South Carolina.

Stony Brook gets screwed with the 2nd round matchup!  Shouldnít surprise me, because football coaches(current/former) at all levels show they are some of the dumbest people on the planet on a weekly basis!
Elon and New Hampshire would each have an easier matchup in the second round!

So true. Stupid regionality. NCAA needs to end this regionality/locality BS. Itís the playoffs. Every program should be able to fly their team.

Not only that, but Wofford with their joke schedule of Big South and SoCon teams gets seeded despite needing double OT to beat 3-8 Chattanooga and only beating 1-10 Gardner Webb by 3 points. What bull****.

Get this though, the FCS committee chairman? Richard Johnson, the athletic director at Wofford  >:( >:( Such bull****. Totally no conflict of interest there being the committee chairman and getting your own program a seed which they don't deserve.

If Heilbron was the committee chairman, do you really think we'd be unseeded and have to travel to JMU in round 2?? No friggin way. It's just as unfortunate for JMU though, because we're a WAY stronger opponent than they should be facing in the second round. They're number one and they have to face a team that was in the running for a seed in the second round?? They should be playing CCSU, San Diego, or Lehigh in two weeks as the #1 seed. Not us. This regionalization **** has to end.

They say "no rematches," but of course Elon vs Furman is a rematch and guess who the winner plays?? WOFFORD!! Furman vs Wofford would be yet another rematch even though the committee tries to avoid first and second round rematches. Again, utter garbage.

That stupid "400 mile radius" screwing everyone over with the match-ups. It is what it is. One game at a time.

On to Lehigh @ the House LaValle Built!

Set your calendars and lets get as many people out there as we can. Eat a lot of turkey and then pack some more calories for Saturday!

Lets go Seawolves!

Not too bad considering they have an easier game in Lehigh than they would in Central Connecticut (New Hampshire's draw). Hard to say which SB team will show up on Saturday, so who they meet in the second round doesn't matter if they can't get past the first.

Hmmm, seems like SBU didn't get the best draw.  Will play JMU in 2nd round, if we beat Lehigh.   Is the assumption here that both Elon and NH had a better strength of schedule than SBU?  Maybe Elon, but NH finished at 7-4 vs. our 9-2.  Strength of schedule for NH compensates for a full 2-game lead over them in the CAA?   Sound a tad flawed to me.

In any event, congrats to SBU, let's take it one game at a time.  Great to be in the playoffs again.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

AD of UNH is also on the selection committee. May be thatís why they get in over Delaware and get to face #4 rather than #1. I am still pissed.

We also have the head to head over UNH. It's BS.

There ya go. These things are all decided by Athletic directors oftentimes of the schools involved and despite claiming that they "recuse" themselves out of discussions of their team, I don't buy that for one moment. They all have their biases and make things easier for their own program whenever possible.

We need to get SH in on these committees.

Duh, forgot about the NH head-to-head.  Clearly, location not an issue either here in the Northeast.  Sounds like politics as usual.  Just need to take care of business at home vs. Lehigh.  The bullseye is clearly on the back of JMU, so looking ahead (prob not a good idea), there will be no pressure up at JMU.

I hope Bolden and Bedell are both ready for Saturday.

The upside though is that Lehigh is the weakest team in the entire field. Even weaker than non-scholarship Pioneer League champion San Diego. They've got a 5-6 record and we're at home in the playoffs. If we can't win that one then the whole coaching staff should be shown the door.

There is politics inside each program & with the selection committee; UNH has a member on the board.

We need to fix our playing calling & put together a sound game plan; last couple games it has been ineffective.  We got very lucky with this win; we were out played.

Maine gave up 275 yards  per game in passing & if wasn't for that hell mary throw we would of only had 185 total yards in the air & our run game was terrible.

Take away the 1 run for TD from 33# they average under 3 yards per carry; JMU is going to put up lots of points & they are going
to run the ball.

Who is calling the plays; i heard that P over rides the playing calling from the OC & P comfort zone in running inside off tackle.

 When you have the size we have use the big men in short yardage; you half to get them reps in practice to be efficient & they are not getting many reps in live scrimmage during the week; #5 was getting hammered in tight coverage over the middle & he doesn't have the size.

The line has had issue the last 2 weeks; we should be using TE & getting the ball out in space more & we did not run 1 double TE set the whole game. 

 We look horrible through 3 quarters & we got very lucky to walk away with this win.

We have 11 players w 5-6 years of experience at D1 level; this is the primary reason why are were we are this year.

Lot of politics going on; if you have a son in the program or your involved with sponsors w kids in the program & if your really think this team is efficient on the offensive side of the ball then it's time rethink your understanding of this game...

We run 4 plays with different variations; 2 plays we run 50% of the time OFF TACKLE & 20-25 YARD FADE.   We have to many studs in the stable to be limited to this play calling......& at every position RB, WR TE we have players that are not always 100% efficient so cut the crap about certain players. 

Talking out of your A** ; some kids were coming off concussions & some times it takes weeks & sometimes months to get back to 100%; 13# across the middle after last week...very scary call.

Time to open up the play book & get these kids reps n practice so they are efficient in the games.  If we use these things to our advantage we will be hard to stop in the short passing game & run game & it will open up the deep ball.

Size, speed, & quickness all are advantages when used correctly.

You should be very careful about saying that on this board. There are a couple of people who take negative criticism of our coaches very seriously..  Coach P and others cant do wrong, ever!!!!!!!!!!
