UND was bout 38th in the latest Stats poll. That's a lot of places to jump to make the playoffs.

At least 7 of those schools were Ivy League and the MEAC had one.  So that’s 30th with a couple teams with losing recorded ahead of us.

Are we looking at different polls? I see 26th STATS, tied 32nd coaches

The CAA has six teams with three losses that can potentially qualify.  But two can be knocked out next weekend, as Elon plays Maine and James Madison against Towson.  But Stony Brook and Delaware can lose too.  

The Southern Conference might get three, but the Southland and OVC don’t deserve even one ( but they have autobids).

The good thing is UND hasn’t been blown out by an FCS school yet.  Other four or five loss teams have been.

That's the old one (week prior) before the loss to Idaho.

Good call, the NCAA website should probably update that.

Insanity. McNeese just got eliminated too. Just lost to Northwestern State in double OT.

Both JMU and Towson are in, they are playing for a seed. Elon might be in some trouble though since they had a cancelled game but the comittee might show them some mercy. CAA clearly going to get at least five in. 

I think the big game for UND next week is really Montana-MSU. You have the trump card on the griz.

@gundy1124 our boy, Smokin Joe Proethroe had 250+ on 40 carries tonight. 

Only Smokin Joe, and about 200 other college running backs, are capable getting 250 yards on 40 fullback dives.

Incredible.

I'm not sure on the strength of schedules of some of these leagues.

Next week you have:

McNeese (6-4) playing Lamar (6-4)

Montana (6-4) playing Montana State (6-4)

UWI (6-4) is playing Iowa State on 12/1 (make up game for Iowa State)

Chattanooga plays South Carolina

Assuming South Carolina beats Chattanooga, not sure what to make of UWI's schedule, but I'm counting them out. The other two I mentioned are loser out games. Dartmouth can't make the playoffs, San Diego is already in. Alcorn is #38, but not sure what kind of league they play in. UND looks to have a legitimate shot IF they win next week.

Just how large is Doug Burgum's fortune?   I thought when Great Plains was sold to Microsoft, Doug's brother had a larger stake in Great Plains than Doug did?  His brother (name escapes me) is a UND Grad and on or was on the UND foundation board.  Might see an on campus stadium in GF before a new one in FGO???

That's what I am thinking as well.  UND has to be <shutters> Griz fans

The Big Sky rep being the Montana's AD definitely adds an extra layer to the drama that will unfold. Digging into all three teams schedules, I would say Montana State (w/ win against Idaho) would have a better resume than UND if both were at 7-4, since it's basically even outside of that. 

Let's go Griz!
