    Aye what do ya know, Mankato is finally #1 in the most important poll! The question is if MSU Mankato stays there if they win out?!

    the committee can still bump CWU past Midwestern into 7th if they so choose, correct? So that all 4 conferences are represented.

    Maybe, the fact that they havent already and did not have them in top 7 in the first set of rankings i think is telling.

    Yes, looking at SOS for the other teams. Tarleton will have 1 less D2 game, Duluth has an awful SOS left. Win out and you'll get your bye.

    With the GNAC not having Earned Access....I think CWU being 8 might be telling. Their SOS is by far the lowest of the 10 listed..and their loss to WT is gonna be huge I think. MW State beats WT to end the season and will then have a win over the common opp that CWU lost to....at home no less. I think that's a dagger.

    Kato stays at 1..I think. Tarleton has a lower SOS after the next few weeks, but has 2 wins over top 7 teams..nobody else has that. Mines SOS will go up....so they could find themselves at 2 or 3. UMD likely drops to 4 if Mines wins out....almost a certainty.

    Chadron falls out in the coming weeks as they play Mines. APU could be dangerous if they won out and beat CWU....as their SOS is above .500.

    11-15 in the RR would probably be BSU, SCSU, USF, Augie, Winona, etc. All with 3 losses. I think BSU is at the front of that line and Winona would likely be around 10 if they win out also. FWIW.

    With Tarleton being #2 now, with 1 less win, I think the committee isn't placing much emphasis on that 1 game difference..as winning percentage is still the same. Only the #1 seed gets a bye.

    I am aware. I stated if Mankato wins out they will get a bye. Tarleton won't jump them with having 1 less game (and having pretty poor opponents left the last 2 weeks).

    I won’t believe it till I see it. It was suppose to be that way last year but nope!! CWU comes out of nowhere (well not really) and robbed Mankato of getting a #1 seed.

    Barring any crazy upsets, at this point I think the first round matchups will be MSU-Texas at Mines, TAMU-Commerce at Tarleton, and Pueblo at Duluth.

    My predictions for next weeks rankings

    1.Mankato (10-0) a great win against a good coo team whose team is better than what their record indicates.

    2. Tarleton St. (9-0) got a win against a weak team.

    3. Duluth (10-0) got a win against a weak team. With mines getting upset today I don’t think Duluth falls to 4 due to weak sos.

    4. Colorado Mines (9-1)
    5. Colorado St. Pueblo (9-1)
    These two could easily flip but give the nod to mines due to H2H.

    6. Texas A&M Commerce (7-2)
    7. Midwestern St. (7-2)

    Both teams are neck and neck but Commerce got the W against Midwestern.

    8. Central Washington (8-2) SOS is killing the wildcats right now!!!!

    9. Chadron St. (7-2) boy.... did next weeks game against mines just get a whole lot more interesting!

    10. Azusa Pacific (7-3) A win vs CWU will keep the GNAC out of postseason play.

    The committee can avoid all first round conference matchups if they want to do so pretty easily here. Pueblo at 3, CWU at 7, not saying that comes into play here this week but watch for the final ranking they could do just that. This barring any big upsets of course.

    Everyone keeps forgetting that CWU only has one D2 loss. Keep that in mind. Their SOS is terrible yes. But they have only lost to one D2 school

    You are correct. That is because they played no one decent.

    I personally think that method is dumb imo but we shall see what happens.

    APU only has 2 D2 losses also.

    If Chadron (who I just haven't seen as a playoff team) beats Mines....then things get interesting for certain. Hard to think Mines doesn't rebound and blast them tho.

    As you listed, the really isn't much need for a change in the rankings.

    Having the National Champs coming to Duluth would make for an interesting R1 matchup..but Commerce clearly isn't what they were a year ago with Luis Perez at QB.

    Eh, I'd prefer to watch non-con match-ups if possible to be honest. At least in the first round.

    Chadron very likely puts points up on Mines, I don't think they put up more than Mines puts on them though. Could be another shootout.
