Well-known member

No doubt these teams are going to be beating up on each other. If the Griz win out a 3 or 4 seed looks likely. With some luck a 2 seed is not out of the question. Wofford looks like they have the easist road to a top 2 seed. With little playoff experience, they also look most likey to be a "one and done" to me.
You must disable the smilies

I would say at least 3 of those ranked above the griz last week now have their smiles "disabled". T. Moss predicts that 3 of the 4 remaining teams ranked above the Griz will lose this week. Let's hope we can all email him praising him for his genius. All 4 of the top teams have been struggling to win lately and/or have tough games ahead of them. I think Montana has the most favorable remaining schedule of the top 5 but even so the Griz will probably face its toughest competition of the season in the next 2 Saturdays. With that said, I firmly believe the Griz are playing better football right now than they have since the 2001 playoffs. Anyone making reservations yet?
Someone's got to lose Delaware/UMass, and someone's got to lose SIU/UNI (Hopefully UNI). The Griz just better do their part.
