    Chances of the FCS Playoffs?


    Register to remove this advertisement
    In my opinion we have slim chances to make the FCS Playoffs. If we continue this roll and beat ISU and WIU then I think we have a solid chance at the playoffs. For now I do not think we will make it due to a tough last 2 games.

    We control our own destiny until we donít anymore... Gotta win out and see how everything else plays out. Outside chance but Iíd say they will have made a hell of a run at it.
    Roll Timber!

    Just the fact that it is even a thread in November tells you how great of a job this coaching staff has done. Then you add in the injuries, especially to the defensive side of the ball and it is even more impressive.

    If we win out Id say we have a reasonable argument. These next 2 games will be a sonofabitch to win though. Did 46 come back in after he got hurt? I saw a couple guys down that might cause ILSt to leave their punter at home

    Playoffs started this week in my opinion. Each game is the next big game. With the youth on the roster these close games are invaluable for the players and coaches. Celebrate for 24 hours and onto the next one. Great game. I will be in the crowd for sure next saturday. Go Trees!!!!!!!

    The guys have to win out. Period, end of discussion and even then it is going to take some stumping because some of the FCS upper guard let their lower ranked schools beat them this week and they have additional matchups over the next two weeks. You need anyone in the Top 10 or way out in front of their conferences to win out so they become locks for auto bids.

    There were quite a few upsets in FCS this weekend that will lead to us likely getting into the receiving votes section, I'd think. With Western Illinois storming back, they'll likely be in the Top 25 if they beat USD next week and you have another team or two in front of them slip. We have Illinois State who will likely fall into the 20-22 range I'd think so that potentially gives you two Top 25 opponents to finish out the season.

    1 North Dakota State (160) 8-0 4000 1
    2 Kennesaw State 7-1 3777 2
    3 James Madison 6-2 3665 3
    4 Weber State 6-2 3416 4
    5 Eastern Washington 6-2 3209 5
    6 UC Davis 7-1 3158 6
    7 South Dakota State 5-2 3084 7
    8 Elon 5-2 2789 8
    9 Wofford 6-2 2688 9
    10 Jacksonville State 6-2 2337 12
    11 McNeese 6-2 2209 14
    12 Colgate 7-0 2046 16
    13 Delaware 6-2 1790 21
    14 Illinois State 5-3 1781 11
    15 Towson 6-2 1774 10
    16 Stony Brook 6-3 1479 15
    17 North Carolina A&T 6-2 1414 18
    18 Princeton 7-0 1345 19
    19 Central Arkansas 5-3 1261 13
    20 Nicholls 5-3 1003 20
    21 Sam Houston State 5-3 661 23
    22 East Tennessee State 7-2 567 25
    23 Maine 5-3 548 24
    24 Dartmouth 7-0 435 NR
    25 Southeast Missouri State 6-2 316 NR

    RV: North Dakota (314) , UNI (262) , Florida A&M (169) , Chattanooga (163) , Idaho State (160) , Rhode Island (87) , Western Illinois (32) , San Diego (20) , Monmouth (20) , Alcorn State (12) , Montana State (4) ,Samford (3) , Lamar (1) , UIW (1)

    Don't want to be debbie downer, but I guess I will be. If #46 is done, we're done. That defense was a pretty porous the second half and once he went down, the floodgates were open. If several of the other defenders that went down are also out going forward, I just don't think you have the pieces behind them to beat two Top 25 caliber teams. I'd love to be wrong.

    I hope the staff is working the phones right now and reaching out to their FBS contacts for potential impact transfers. Boyle has proven to be a dynamic QB and we have him for one more year. They need to get another back in here that is ready to go out of the gate and another dynamic WR to pair with Hendrix. If they can do that, the offense could be pretty dynamic next year especially with the other guys that have stepped up like Caton.

    On D, they need several guys to come in out of the gate. They need to find at least one solid DT that can plug space, another backer to pair with Jonas and at least one more corner. If they could find another pass rusher, even if situational guy, that would be fantastic. These are all pieces that need to come in ready to play Day One.

    If we were doing this next year, I wouldn't be that impressed, it would be about what I expected, but the fact we've done this well in Mallory's second year has me quite impressed. I think we could very well lose out given all the injuries and I wouldn't be disappointed. I think we're already set up well for next year. I'll be excited going into the season for the first time in a long time. Thank you to the coaches and players for that!

    As for the playoffs, I'll worry about it if we in fact win out.
    Fear the Trees!

    Does anyone think this call was our 7th win? Maybe someone could screen cap it better rather than me invest 2 weeks on how to do it

    Looked to me like the ball might have hit the ground as he landed...
