  1. If you told me last year that Delaware can beat Northern Iowa, I'd have laughed at you. The Raekwon-less Panthers is sad...
  2. Nice win by the Jackrabbits!
  3. Damn... JMU and EMU confuse me so much. Nice try @TheSam. Gotta work on that run D
  4. Nervously hands both coaches the official complaint form.
  5. Ah shoot. Fixed! With a few changes to the middle of the pack for rankings.
  6. Holy crap it's on time this week! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 Illinois State Redbirds (3-0) Previous Rank: 2 Last week, I think someone said the Redbirds were underrated. Think you might have been right. Devon Wardwell doesn't deserve his name. Because he didn't play just well. He played AMAZINGLY. This might actually be the best single-game performance we have ever seen from an FCS QB thus far. Near perfect at 25/29 with 350 yards, 4 TD, and 0 INT. It just doesn't get much better than that. Frankie Boone with 109 rush yards and a TD, as well. No team is excited to face this team... Rank 2 North Dakota State Bison (3-0) Previous Rank: 1 BYE Coming up: vs UNLV Coming up: BYE Rank 3 Delaware Blue Hens (2-1) Previous Rank: 3 BYE Coming up: at Northern Iowa Rank 4 Harvard Crimson (2-1) Previous Rank: 5 Fresh off an upset over FBS team Army, Harvard came out looking to continue their winning ways. Cameron Whaley had another great day, capped off by a bruising 40 yard rush for a touchdown. The Brady/Beckwith connection was special today, too. However special teams saved the day (and almost ruined it). Harvard kicker Davenport was 1/2 on the day on FGs and the Panthers's kicker was 0/2 and the game ended up a 3 point difference. Talk about butt clenching. Coming up: at North Dakota Rank 5 UC Davis Aggies (2-1) Previous Rank: 9 After being dropped 6 spots last week (an hour ago...), the Aggies came back with a vengeance. Felix Luck completed 65% of his passes for 333 yards and 3 TDs. Randarious Brown, called out last week, made an impact rushing for 61 yards (though half of that on one run) and a TD. The defense, in this one was the star of the show. Nothing super flashy, but definitely employed the "bend, don't break" style of play, allowing only one touchdown, late in garbage time. Coming up: BYE Rank 6 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-2) Previous Rank: 7 Just like last week, the Wildcats manage a very good 4th quarter. Coach Sam has got this unit running sprints all day just to get heir stamina up, and it shows. A 14 point 4th quarter almost completes the comeback. Kenneth Love did what he could and it almost worked. Jack Mayberry will have to step it up if they want to win more games. Coming up: BYE Rank 7 James Madison Dukes (1-2) Previous Rank: 4 The offense could not get going. Every bit of momentum seemed to grind to a halt from penalties as the Dukes were penalized 8 times for 72 yards. Despite rushing for 98 yards, Samuel Jones could not find the endzone and Cooper Fleming didn't hit 200 yards through the air. Defensively, lots of sacks, but nothing to show for it. Coming up: vs Eastern Washington Rank 8 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-2) Previous Rank: 8 What do you even say to this one? Absolutely gut-wrenching. The Jackrabbits hung with a strong ACC opponent the whole game, but just could not find the endzone in OT. Isaiah Best played some of his BEST ball until the costly interception in OT. You just hate see it happen., but we know Best will come back stronger than ever. Best did it all himself on offense in this one, for sure. Shaun Clemons terrorized the UNC Oline. Coming up: at vs Yale Rank 9 Youngstown State Penguins (1-2) Previous Rank: 13 Last week I said "an OK performance for Brad McCaffrey." Brad seemed to take offense to that, so he threw for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns. Nelson Jr. and Shields each broke the century mark and had hauled in two scores each. The Penguins are dangerously looking like a one-trick pony, however. When McCaffrey plays poorly, so does the rest of the team. Coming up: BYE Rank 10 Eastern Washington Eagles (1-2) Previous Rank: 6 The Eagles started off slow, but managed to finish the game on a high note. It was, unfortunately, too little too late. Samuel Connor had over 250 yards passing as well as 2 touchdowns. Eastern Washington, however, will likely be asking themselves "what if?" as two drops at a critical junction of the game from White and Chandler really ruined things for the Eagles. Defensively, the problems are more apparent. Frankie Boone was like a free range cattle in this one. There was nobody who could stop him. Coming up: at James Madison Rank 11 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (1-2) Previous Rank: 10 BYE Coming up: vs Harvard Rank 12 Northern Iowa Panthers (0-3) Previous Rank: 11 Looking nothing like the scary Panthers of last year, the team has struggled. Pete Martin had a much better game in this one, rushing for 47 yards, but a third of his yards came from one single run. The offensive line is not doing him any favors. 2 costly drops in this one as Beckwith seems to struggle finding his receivers. The kicking game ultimately lost this one, though. Two missed field goals turned into a 3 point loss for Northern Iowa. Coming up: vs Delaware Rank 13 Portland State Vikings (0-3) Previous Rank: 12 Not enough. That was Portland State in this one. By all accounts, an average performance. Nobody really stood out in this one, and the score showed it. Riley Aldridge will want to hit the practice field and try to improve his accuracy as he threw just 50% on the day. Coming up: BYE Rank 14 Florida A&M Rattlers (1-2) Previous Rank: 15 Like their opponents, the Rattlers were shaky and unconvincing in this one. Kicker David Hutchinson showed off his consistency, nailing 3 of 4 FGs. Florida A&M was able to consistently drive deep into enemy territory but just could not score TDs consistently. The team will need to work on their redzone offense this week leading up to Montana. Coming up: at Montana Rank 15 Montana Grizzlies (0-3) Previous Rank: 16 A better game, in this one. Gabriel Gage did not look super horrible as he did hit 240 yards and threw a TD, despite the pick. James West was able to salvage the day with a short touchdown run. Defensively, the line was able to do well to hold Troy Norris to 15 yards and generated 2 sacks. Coming up: vs Florida A&M Rank 16 Yale Bulldogs (0-3) Previous Rank: 14 ...Yikes. Logan Hayes had an ugly game, hitting just 101 yards and 2 INT. Nothing worked. Nothing at all, today. James Betts looked like a god against the Bulldogs. Just, wow. Credit is due, however, to the Yale special teams? They got the opposing kicker to miss 2 XPs. Coming up: at South Dakota State
  7. The editors would like to apologize for the delay in pushing the power rankings out this year. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (3-0) Previous Rank: 1 Daniel Taylor again showing everybody why he won the starting job this season. Scoring two on the ground including a blistering run early in the 2nd half for 41 yards. McAllister seems uncharacteristically off-beat with his receivers, so we will have to see if they can get it back together again. Otherwise, a very solid performance on all sides of the ball. Coming up: BYE Rank 2 Illinois State Redbirds (2-0) Previous Rank: 6 Last week, I think someone said the Redbirds were underrated. Think you might have been right. Devon Wardwell doesn't deserve his name. Because he didn't play just well. He played AMAZINGLY. This might actually be the best single-game performance we have ever seen from an FCS QB thus far. Near perfect at 25/29 with 350 yards, 4 TD, and 0 INT. It just doesn't get much better than that. Frankie Boone with 109 rush yards and a TD, as well. No team is excited to face this team... Coming up: vs Eastern Washington Rank 3 Delaware Blue Hens (2-1) Previous Rank: 8 Barack Holmes, THE PRESIDENT. 151 yards and 2 TDs including a monster 43 yard scamper. Despite not being the most accurate in this one, Erik Jenkins managed to throw 2 TDs with no picks. A hell of a game, and quite the upset! This team is scary. Very scary, indeed. Coming up: BYE Rank 4 James Madison Dukes (1-1) Previous Rank: 4 BYE Coming up: vs UC Davis Rank 5 Harvard Crimson (1-1) Previous Rank: 9 AN UPSET OVER AN FBS TEAM!!! Cameron Whaley was RUNNING RIOT! 128 yards, 2 touchdowns! Beckwith near perfect! So much AWESOME. Coming up: vs Northern Iowa Rank 6 Eastern Washington Eagles (1-1) Previous Rank: 7 BYE Coming up: at Illinois State Rank 7 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-2) Previous Rank: 5 Just like last week, the Wildcats manage a very good 4th quarter. Coach Sam has got this unit running sprints all day just to get heir stamina up, and it shows. A 14 point 4th quarter almost completes the comeback. Kenneth Love did what he could and it almost worked. Jack Mayberry will have to step it up if they want to win more games. Coming up: BYE Rank 8 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-1) Previous Rank: 10 Munnerlyn may not have been at his best in this game, and it almost cost the Jackrabbits. They sneak by New Hampshire in this one with field goal to seal the deal. Defensively, it was a great game until the end when South Dakota State just could not stop Kenneth Love. Coming up: at North Carolina Rank 9 UC Davis Aggies (1-1) Previous Rank: 3 The thing is, the Aggies played well. The Redbirds just played well-er. Felix Brown continues to throw as much as he can, throwing for 334 yards, but also had an interception. Randarious Brown wants to get in on the action, but he just can't get things going in this one. The defense is concerning in this one, allowing over 450 yards and they allowed a TD to like every WR on the Redbirds roster. Coming up: at James Madison Rank 10 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (1-2) Previous Rank: 2 An absolute SHOCKER in this one. North Dakota fell apart at the wrong time. Micah Maxwell, we aren't quite sure if he was even at this game. The Crawley to Chambers connection was generally OK, but 2 drops really hurt the Fighting Hawks. Defensively, it was an absolute mess, in this one. Nothing worked, it seemed, as Eric Jenkins and Barack Holmes ran the show. Coming up: BYE Rank 11 Northern Iowa Panthers (0-2) Previous Rank: 12 A sketchy 3rd quarter ruined this potential upset. Despite scoring a touchdown in this one, Pete Martin has had trouble filling in the ridiculously large shoes of Raekwon Thomas. Northern Iowa will want to take better care of the football moving forward. Defensively, they are getting to the QB, but not enough to make a difference yet. Coming up: at Harvard Rank 12 Portland State Vikings (0-1) Previous Rank: 11 This performance was the opposite of last week. No player could find the endzone in this one, though Rashaad Rivers tried his best. Travis Clinton was clinical for the Spartans in this one and the Vikings could do nothing to prevent San Jose State from scoring. The Vikings will need to go back to the drawing board and figure out just what went wrong. Coming up: at Florida A&M Rank 13 Youngstown State Penguins (0-2) Previous Rank: 13 An OK performance from QB McCaffrey in this one. 2 interceptions, but did throw 3 dimes. The team will want to get Troy Norris more involved to help spread the ball around. It was a very, very good effort all around against a good Northwestern team. A better defense for the penguins may have spelled an upset here. Coming up: vs Montana Rank 14 Yale Bulldogs (0-2) Previous Rank: 14 It was not a great week for the Bulldogs. Granted, it was North Dakota State. Samuel Black continues to impress, recording 7 tackles in this one, but the rest of the team seems to be mis-stepping. Coming up: at Wake Forest Rank 15 Florida A&M Rattlers (0-2) Previous Rank: 15 BYE Coming up: vs Portland State Rank 16 Montana Grizzlies (0-2) Previous Rank: 16 BYE Coming up: at Youngstown State
  8. Wtf Brad McCaffrey!?
  9. Gutted for SDSU. @llamas Amazing effort. Oh my god. SDSU had no fumbles, no missed FGs, and no 4th down conversion attempts. That means Best through a pick to end the game I feel so bad for the guy.
  10. Think you might be right. Waiting on next week...
  11. The editors would like to apologize for the delay in pushing the power rankings out this year. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (2-0) Previous Rank: 4 A strong game from the offense in this one, spreading the ball around nicely. Defensively, however, things started to show signs of weakness towards the end. This was an issue last year for the Bison, and it could be an issue again with a weaker defense on paper compared to last year. Still though, the team did well, but do need to watch the number of penalties being committed. Coming up: vs Yale Rank 2 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (1-1) Previous Rank: 1 Not bad, all things considered. Crawley threw the ball 51 times. Yes. 51 times. And did manage 350 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT. Not bad. Unfortunately, RB Maxwell only managed 40 yards on the ground. Two WRs broke 120 yards, which was good. The defense just kind of gave up in the 4th quarter, though. Coming up: vs Delaware Rank 3 UC Davis Aggies (1-0) Previous Rank: 11 A strong first half helps the Aggies win their first ever FCS game. Felix Luck threw for 333 yards and 4 TDs and is starting to look like a top FCS QB. RB Randarius Brown will be wishing he was able to make a bigger impact as he only rushed for a dismal 24 yards on 9 carries. The passing game, like I mentioned was on fire. Two 100+ yard receivers and lots of balance. Expect a deep playoff run for this team. Coming up: vs Illinois State Rank 4 James Madison Dukes (1-1) Previous Rank: 7 The first every meeting between JMU and Portland State, and it was a very close one. JMU needed some late-game herocis from Cooper Fleming and crew to pull this one off. Samuel Jones shows everybody why he is a top RB scoring 2 TDs and rushing for 128 yards. A long 46 yard TD run impressed everyone watching. Coming up: BYE Rank 5 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-1) Previous Rank: 2 Encouraging stuff from the offense towards the end of the game, but the defense really let the Wildcats down on this one, giving up 14 pts in the 3rd quarter. Offensively, the team did well, but Mayberry needs to be completing more than just 50% of his passes. Coming up: vs South Dakota State Rank 6 Illinois State Redbirds (1-0) Previous Rank: 12 The Redbirds were never going to lose this one. They start off their season really strong. 308 yards and 3 TDs for Devon Wardwell and 129 yards rushing with 2 TDs for scary Frankie Boone. Defensively, they sacked the Montana QB twice, and collectively the team won in all phases of the game. A really complete performance from the Redbirds. Coming up: at UC Davis Rank 7 Eastern Washington Eagles (1-1) Previous Rank: 3 This one was ugly. Connor showed everyone why he is one of the best QBs in the FCS, but it was just not enough against a very good Memphis team. This game looks like it may have broken an NCAA record for most passes attempted in one game at 113 attempts. Not sure. Someone look it up for me. The defense is going to want to figure t hings out, however. They allowed 6 TDs through the air. Six. Coming up: BYE Rank 8 Delaware Blue Hens (1-1) Previous Rank: 5 Last week was a pretty good effort, and this week, despite the loss, I think is a really good effort. They took a really scary Purdue team on and came out doing pretty well. Eric Jenkins did not have a great time against this Purdue secondary, but Barack Holmes managed 102 yards on the ground including 1 TD. The defense did very well, but fell apart towards the end of the game, so there are some stamina issues here. Coming up: at North Dakota Rank 9 Harvard Crimson (0-1) Previous Rank: 6 BYE Coming up: at Army Rank 10 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (0-1) Previous Rank: 8 BYE Coming up: vs New Hampshire Rank 11 Portland State Vikings (0-1) Previous Rank: 9 A very nice effort here. Rashaad Rivers tried everything he could to carry this team. The 72 yard TD run even got some applause from the visiting JMU fans. Portland State will need to find ways to jump start the game early as this one just did not last long enough to see the momentum really carry them to victory. Riley Aldridge did not have a great game in this one. Coming up: at San Jose State Rank 12 Northern Iowa Panthers (0-1) Previous Rank: 10 BYE Coming up: at Tulane Rank 13 Youngstown State Penguins (0-1) Previous Rank: 13 The Penguins will be happy with McCaffrey's performance in this one. It was quite satisfactory. He threw for almost 300 yards and managed 2 TDs and 1 INT. The run game looked promising, but ultimately was never really able to gain any traction. Charles Wright had 2 sacks in this one, so we'll have to keep an eye on him to see how he fares this season. Coming up: at Northwestern Rank 14 Yale (0-1) Previous Rank: 15 BYE Coming up: at North Dakota State Rank 15 Florida A&M Rattlers (0-2) Previous Rank: 14 ... Oof. Everything that could have went wrong in this one went wrong. Gavin Orr turned the ball over 3 times. The team can take solace in the fact that they only allowed 1 passing TD? I guess? Coming up: BYE Rank 16 Montana Grizzlies (0-2) Previous Rank: 16 Yikes. Ok, the good news is that Gage managed 2 TDs and threw better than 50%. The bad news is that everything else kinda sucked. The receivers did balance things very nicely with similar amounts of receptions each for similar total yardage. Coming up: BYE
