Just dabbling a little, jknezek.  I wasn't going to unveil this year's eliminator table until after week 5.   :)

I know. And I'm much too lazy to actually hang up Halloween decorations. But still... let's not have end of season nuttiness encroach on the joy of simply having the first few weeks of football back. FBS does enough of that already...

Dear lord people. It's week 3. Many teams haven't played a conference game yet. There is plenty of time to hit up playoff scenarios when we at least hit October.

This is like people who hang up Christmas decorations and play Christmas music before Halloween. You shouldn't need a license to use their bones as Halloween decorations...

I ran my first 2017 playoff projection before Christmas 2016.

UMHB and Springfield are undefeated thru week #6.

If UMHB goes undefeated and Springfield were upset, would HSU jump Springfield in the criteria?

If Springfield loses, for sure.  Hardin-Simmons may well be selected before Springfield even if Springfield gets to 10-0 and Springfield would wind up going in via Pool C as Centre did a few years ago.

Wally, I am glad to hear your assessment. I did not want to sound like a "homer" on that point.

I would love to see HSU versus Springfield, even if it meant flying the Cowboys to Massachusetts!

A Pool B bid for HSU would take care of worthy team

Pool C for undefeated Springfield would seal up the East Region for a Pool C bid, and then throw the remaining 4 Pool C bids back to the selection committee.

Back in 2005, we had the Division IV Discussion when about 100 schools wanted to pull out.

If we had D-IV and a bid-to-access ratio of 1:6.5 for football, like we do for Hoops and Baseball, then we might have about a 12-team playoff for D-IV*** and its 80 schools and about a 26-team playoff of the remaining 170 schools in D-3.  Those extra 6 bids would alleviate the log jam that we have with the #2 and #3 and #4 contenders for Pool C in the Regional Rankings.

Wasn't part of the (thankfully) stillborn D-4 idea was that they're wouldn't be playoffs there?

Hmm... if that was the case (and I can't remember), I would have thought some of those involved would not have been... and others would have been more interested. I could be wrong, but I don't remember the playoffs being part of that. Heck, those schools could still say they are not interested if they wanted to (i.e. NESCAC football).

There was definitely discussion about whether a national championship would be offered in "D-IV" but since we didn't get far enough down that road, there was no actual decision.
