Frontier Conference domination

Will the NAIA “powers that be” finally realize after today’s results what people have been saying for a couple years? As I mentioned a week ago, today’s #10 at #7 (according to the NAIA coaches) was really #46 at #3 (according to Massey Ratings). Not to disrespect Kansas Wesleyan, and their 10-2 season, but they couldn’t have beaten anyone in the Frontier Conference other than Montana Northern. That’s what I said, and Massey Ratings agreed, and yet the voting coaches thought KWU was more worthy of a post season birth than Montana Western. Ridiculous.

SOU shouldn’t be playing Montana Tech next week as the top four teams (according to the coaches) won. If the system is at all fair, things will play out so that SOU ends up playing Montana Tech in Daytona this year. SOU should have played Carroll College in Daytona last year. Carroll College should have ended up with the #2 ranking last year.

Things need to be fixed in the NAIA football ranking system soon. SOU and Montana Tech should be at home next weekend. Neither will be since they had to run the Frontier Conference gauntlet just to get to the postseason.
