Will post the poll with the voters that have turned in ballots. I'll add in Hansen and Massey for replacement...

Thanks for finishing this FANOFD3. It was interesting to see how our local voters placed the teams vs. D3.com. The top 4 were pretty close in both polls, the rest of the D3 poll is not as knowledgeable as the ERFP (IMO). Hobart didn't even get any points in the D3 poll, of course , I might not be totally objective  ;)

My guess is that the national guys didn't take the post season win (Hobart) and the loss (Ithaca) into consideration.

Copied this over from our FB page. It's kind of silly, I know, but hey, keep an open mind and have some fun with it like I did, if you're up for it.



Call me crazy, but I had this idea. It's kind of "fantasy football" but bear with me. Note there are some caveats (e.g., this assumes that a NESCAC team or two wouldn't be able to or otherwise join in).

Anyway, here goes:

“COVID-shuffle” / regional realignment. Goal would be a shortened but still decent sized regular season, so games would have to be mostly equitable, so teams in pods could play teams out of pods (e.g., Norwich vs. Springfield) to get to 7 or 8 regular season games.

Granite Mountain Pod (6)
• UNE
• Husson
• Maine Maritime
• Plymouth State
• Norwich
• Castleton State

South Shore Pod (6)
• Salve
• Curry
• Mass-Maritime
• Mass-Dartmouth
• Bridgewater State
• USCGA

City Pod (8 – maybe pull in USCGA or just have that be USMMA's one OOP rivalry game)
• West Conn
• William Paterson
• FDU-Florham
• Montclair State
• Rowan
• Wesley*
• USMMA
• SUNY-Maritime

Central/West Mass (10 – split into two mini-pods. Left WPI out for now given RPI and MIT decisions. They are still TBD, but have to imagine pressure is on their president to not play for PR reasons)
Worcester area (“East”)
o Becker
o Anna Maria
o Dean
o Framingham St
o Worcester St
Springfield area (“West”)
o Springfield
o WNE
o Nichols
o Fitchburg St
o Westfield St

Upstate NY Pod (14-team split)
“East” (7 teams)
o SLU
o Union
o Hartwick
o Utica
o Morrisville State
o Ithaca
o Cortland (could move them or IC into West as an OOP game and put a team like Hobart here instead)
“West” (7 teams)
o Hobart
o Rochester
o Buff State
o Brockport
o SJFC
o Alfred
o Alfred State

Keystone Pod (10 teams, two mini-pods, could be more if some of PAC is brought in)
• 9 PA MAC teams plus Keystone (ECFC)

Out of scope:
Southeast Pod (also would split into 7 team mini pods)
• 9 ODAC plus Catholic, Gallaudet, CNU, Salisbury and Stevenson

Also - we could possibly pull in the SE if we had a secondary PA group, e.g., the PAC which has 8 teams planning to play this fall (at the moment).

For “playoff bids”

Granite winner vs. South Shore winner = play-in (i.e., NNE pod winners).

Other pod winners will be easy if a team goes undefeated, but a little trickier in round robin and would require tiebreakers if multiple teams have one loss, kind of like how it is already.

Playoff Rd 1 (neutral, single site bubble – probably in West MA (Stagg Field?) or maybe Albany area (UofA or similar) which are probably the most equidistant location to all the others, give or take an hour or so.

Game 1 - City Champ vs. North NE Champ
Game 2 - Upstate East vs. Upstate West
Game 3 - Central MA vs. Western MA
Game 4 - Keystone 1 vs. Keystone 2 Champ

Rd 2

Game 1 vs. Game 2 winner
Game 3 vs. Game 4 winner

Regional Championship

Game 1vs2 winner vs. Game 3vs4 winner
