I believe they should count as significant wins in the same way a win against a quality opponent does

Our problem is that the rules for all D-III sports as set by the membership and the Championships Committee of the NCAA only consider such games as secondary criteria.

The new OWP/OOWP criteria have been implemented to modulate some of the "wins against really bad D3 teams".

My reference to that they should count when ranking team in the poll.  Ralph is correct that for the OWP/OOWP criteria they do not.  It would not be fair to count these types of games for or against either team.  In fact, I would encourage them by allowing them to be outside the 40 game limit.

Jim expresses the sentiments well.  I think that a D-1 game is a good experience, and local D-2/NAIA games may be good for the community and easy on the budget and missed class time, especially for midweek games!

I don't want a team making a habit of D-1's to the detriment of the rest of the D-3 schedule.

What do we say about Louisiana College's win over D-1 Nicholls State.  LaCollege will have to work hard to earn one of the four berths from the ASC-East in the ASC Tourney.  (That means that Louisiana College may be only the 7th - 10th best team in the ASC!)

In 2004 Blackburn College (SLIAC) beat Southern Illinois University - Carbondale.
