Sam gives some good analysis on his top 10 and why he ranks them there:

Sounds like he doesn’t think the recruiting thing will be an impediment to success.

The Griz will go 3-0 in the nonconference (Central Washington, Missouri State, Morehead State), avoids Weber State and gets Sac State and Montana State at home. Expect a high playoff seed for Montana.
There's where our chances lie. VERY favorable schedule layout, for a change.

Continued home games during the playoffs has historically beneficial for the Griz (and all other teams) and will continue to be the case. It is also much easier to climb in the rankings when you start the season in the top 25 (Capt. Obvious)!

I think those first 3 games are a pathetic. Not sure any of those wins really help us even if we win by 70.

2 are FCS games...

I get your point, but no one gives a rats butt at the end of the year if you are 10-1 or 9-2 in a top 2 conference who you played

Yes if you are a bubble team those games can hurt you.

I made quite a few bets with people when Bobby was hired back that he would have the Griz in the NC within Three years...I didn't say win it...This is the 3rd year. I need these young men to get it done this year.

I am expecting a top 4 seed going into the playoffs this year.
Montana is no place for the idler, the penniless, the feeble in will or body!

Be careful, we don't want any pre-season National Championship talk. That trophy is on permanent display 200 miles east.

3 BSC schools in the top 10. Always good to see

Can you expand on your comment? And compare to other conferences? I'd like to know more about what you are saying, or trying to say. Thx.

Seems fairly evident, but okay: The article highlights UM's softer schedule this year, while mentioning msu's more difficult schedule, the opposite of what happened last year.

Other conferences play every team.

Okay, wasn't evident to me what you were saying. I understand the schedule isn't symmetrical. A number of conferences are the same way, including various FBS conference, like the SEC, Big 10, and PAC 12. I understand the situation, but I don't see it as a "crock".

It is what it is. Sometimes teams have easier schedules and sometimes harder schedules. Does it really matter, other than for crowning the conference champ?

Thx.

Every other conference with an unbalanced schedule has a conference championship game.


Without one, it’s a crock

You’re welcome.

I don't care about a conference championship game. What's does that get you?

Do you really care who the Big Sky conference champion is? I don't. I probably couldn't name the conference champion since Hauck left in 2009.

You're welcome.
