Rat Dogs, Sammy & Vermin. Rat Dogs and Vermin in same bracket. Looks geographic based again.

Some of the traditional FCS powers are missing this year:

Montana, Montana State, S. Dakota, EWU, Richmond.

Guess we aren't the only ones w/ a "down" year.

All three in the same side of the bracket is crap. I hate vermin, but have a feeling Wofford may suffer the same fate as us last season in our rematch.

They gave furman a rematch with elon.

At least make them go out and play weber st. or u.n.i. or some other obscure team in some remote town.

Not a rematch for the first game. Stupid.

Looks like the committee does things in this order:

1.  Picks the 24 team field.

2.  Selects the top 8 seeds & plugs them in to the 2nd round, so that if everything goes according to the seeding #1 would play #8, #2 would play #7, #3 would play #6 & #4 would play #5.  Top 8 seeded teams get home game for 2nd round.

3.  For the 1st round, the home team is picked based on submitted bids, & 1st round games are matched based on geography, so the visitor doesn't have to travel more than about 400 miles.  Rematch, same conference, better record/ranking does not matter.

Note that NO ivy League teams are allowed in the playoffs due to their conf rules...  it is a money issue.

there would be an additional 2-3 teams in there is they were allowed.

Don't believe money is the issue, Ivy limits football to a 10 game season and bans participation in playoffs to limit impact on academics and prevent overemphasis on sports; not a bad idea. 81 you forgot Youngstown St which went from national runner up to a 6-5 season, we weren't the only team to take a nose dive this year

not quite...Ivy League doesnt allow their teams to go to playoffs.  Funny that they allow their basketball champion to participate in the basketball tourney...and yes, that is a $$ issue...They want it!!
