    Default SR 4 Playoff matchup predictions? (11/10)

    My own opinion...

    1. Minnesota St.
    2. Tarleton St.
    3. Minnesota-Duluth
    4. Colorado Mines
    5. Colorado St. Pueblo
    6. Texas A&M Commerce
    7. Midwestern St.

    8. Azusa Pacific
    9. Central Washington
    10. Winona St.

    This is how I see it right now but I think the committee will have something different from my opinion.

    If that's the actual setup they'll switch it around to something like...

    1. Mankato
    2. Tarelton
    3. Duluth
    4. Mines
    5. Commerce
    6. Midwestern
    7. Pueblo

    Would the commitmee place two 2 loss teams over a one loss Pueblo? Considering Pueblo beat commerce this year... I feel like compared to past years it’ll be harder to avoid first round conference matchup’s. Tomorrow we will find out how determined the committee is of avoiding first round conference matchup’s!

    Very much doubt they go to this extreme to avoid conference matchups. Mines losing last week made it pretty tough to avoid as do all the H2H scenarios among these 7. Does Azusa perhaps slide into #7 with that solid road win yesterday?

    They did have a better SOS than CWU but I think it’s unlikely. Now had MSU-Texas choked today then they sneak into the playoffs...

    I think there's a 50/50 chance APU lands there. They have a better win than anything MW has and 1 more in-region victory..and these are things the committee looks at. Otherwise they will have basically the same SOS. I went from thinking APU had a 20% chance to starting to think they might land there.

    If I’m a maverick fan, the team I wouldn’t want to play the most is Colorado St. Pueblo because of how they match up to our style of playing..

    FWIW. My guess:

    1. Minnesota St.
    2. Tarleton St.
    3. Minnesota-Duluth
    4. Colorado Mines
    5. Colorado St. Pueblo
    6. Texas A&M Commerce
    7. Azusa Pacific

    The Mines loss makes it difficult to avoid R1 conference matchups. But I'm going with the feeling that Azusa will make it.

    I'm more worried about a team that can throw the ball.

    In a sense I would too but the teams that sling the pigskin around aren’t very physical. Prime example is Midwestern st. Colorado Mines is slimilar to Midwestern. I think they’ll get some yards on us but our defense wouldn’t break in the endzone. Their defenses are non existence for the most part so I wouldn’t worry at least in our region.

    Now Pueblo worries me because how physical they play and they have similar size (maybe bigger) lineman than us. But their offense isn’t as explosive but their d is pretty tough to score on.

    Offense doesn't put up the numbers of Mines but they are healthy this year which is big, the playoff game last year the backup QB started and then the starter came in but he was nowhere near 100%. Of course, weather greatly hindered much as far as throwing the ball that day. Bernard McDondle is also fairly healthy, he was out for the year last season, he's the Pack's most explosive RB. If Pueblo is able to make it to Mankato I would expect a similar game as last year. First though, looks like they'll prob have to go beat the only team to defeat them this year and that won't be at all easy up at Mines.

    Good guessing!! The commitmee really values each conference getting a representative in the postseason. Only shocked that Azusa pacific got in over Midwestern.

    Azusa had a better win, on the road, and really not a bad loss. Midwestern looked terrible the last two weeks of the season also.

    Could not get the selection show for some reason. Who are the possible opponents for MSU in round 2?

    I do think I would rather face mines than Pueblo. I believe Mankato either led the country or were tied for the lead in team sacks. I don’t think the mines offense would have the time they are used to having to throw the ball. And Pueblo played mankato really tough last year.
