Does Benson have to put a bid in? Whatever happens, 50% of our offense and 50% of our TDs was on crutches with his leg in a brace and is waiting on an MRI per TV. It would be a plus for the program,

but our defense (barring some miraculous play) would be up against it. It'd be fun to see them in there, I have to admit.

Are we really debating about if it's a good thing if the team is in the playoffs!? 80+% of this board voted the team would finish between 3-6 wins...and now they got a chance at a playoff game. Hell, this program took one hell of a step forward this year and I feel that people are being all doom and gloom. If the program can nail down the QB spot and bring in a recruiting class, I really think this team is 2 years away from making serious noise in FCS.

The NCAA makes the first-round matchups first (based on no conference rematches and minimizing overall travel costs) and only then opens the bids for home games by non-seeded teams. So it depends on who you're matched up against. I think the minimum bid is $30K

Thanks. Wasn't aware of that. Oh, I do believe they have done enough to be considered for the playoffs. I'm just realistic that losing so much of your offense and scoring at this late date puts a lot on the shoulders of the defense unless some offensive playmakers can step up big time.

If I am UA I start scheduling games vs. Missouri Valley...pretty obvious the selection committee is in love with that conferences. If you can beat one team there and then compete in CAA, help out. Forget NEC teams.

We don't need to do that. I'd rather have 6 home games and win 8 games. We do that and we're in every year in the CAA. That's the recipe for success for us.

 

Stinks that Samford got in but ISU beat Northwestern....

 

No one to blame but our own team. Best Delaware and we're in and maybe hosting.

I'm disappointed for the Srs., but overall it was a good season. I've been bringing different people to games this season. They've generally had a good time and some have already attended multiple games. We have a long way to go in spreading our product to the local community. It's way better than the previous AD, but still miles to go for marketing and communication. Aside: loved the music at the pregame.
