  1. League play starts!...Sort of

    Besides probably a few die-hard fans in California, the release of this week's D2football.com top 25 poll surprised very few when a 3-0 Humboldt State team was left off the list. Specific to Division II football, as respected as the D2football.com poll is for fans, it doesn't determine the playoff spots. Those NCAA regional rankings begin coming out in mid-October, and that's where Humboldt State should focus it's time when it comes to polls.
