Had WNE not gotten the one #16 vote, I would have had the entire Top 25 (Hope instead of Brockport on my ballot).

Not sure where to put this question so I will ask it here. Is there a D3 bracket challenge anywhere to be played? Not finding it on the D3 photography site.

Ice Bear says this is really a good looking poll. Ice appreciates the work and thought that obviously goes into it each week on a national scale. Ice believes in D3 with so many teams, not tons of coverage (like D1), life's busy schedule, etc, it certainly isn't easy to come up with this. Nice ****ing job.

Ice Bear also like the recent discussion. Honestly he doesn't know exactly how he feels about the AQ system. At times he likes it and at others it annoys him because like what has already been said it does not include the best 32...or however many, teams in the country. Ice knows there are so many reasons why this is, many valid and/or practical. He guesses he should sit back and really think about his view of the current playoff set up in D3 football and across the board.

Believe it or not, I think the AQ system and having a field of 32 as it is now reduces arguments.

Question for the group, does a loss in the first round drop a team out of the top 25 and open it up to a team that wins a non NCAA (bowl) game?

Ain’t that the truth.
Well said Smed.

Does anyone really look back and think, "We were ranked #25 in the final poll!"?

Teams that don't get ranked often enough to take it for granted might.  The D3 top 25 is a pretty exclusive club, really.

So how does the final poll shake on out? I view the first 4 as North Central, Wheaton, Mount Union and UW-W. Am I incorrect in that thinking? And is St. John's, Muhlenberg and Mary Hardin-Baylor the next 3? And if so, in what order? Who rounds out the top 10?

Since SJU defeated Wheaton in the Quarterfinal, and based on last years final ranking, I would think; 1.} NCC, 2.) UWW, 3.) SJU, 4.) UMU, 5.) Muhlenburg, 6.) Wheaton, 7.) UMHB.

Could swap #3 and #4. And switch around #5, #6 and #7 in any order.

How can you put that much space between
a) NCC and UMU
b) SJU and Wheaton
