Yes to the first question, with "might" being the key word. Now that the season is nearly done one can see who DID beat whom, and their respective ratings.  Off the top of my head the only "upsets" have been, Morgan vs. A&T, and Delaware State vs. Bethune-Cookman.  I will review that too after Saturday's game.

It measures how each team has fared playing their respective schedules.  In that many here think the FCS teams are inherently better than the D2 teams, I began separating them.

Point hierarchy:

Win vs a Winner on the road
Win vs a Winner at a neutral site
Win vs a Winner at home
Win vs a Loser on the road
Win vs a Loser at a neutral site
Win vs a Loser at Home
Loss to a Winner on the Road
Loss to a Winner at a neutral site
Loss to a Winner at home
Loss to a Loser on the road
Loss to a Loser at a neutral site
Loss to a Loser at Home

Caveats:  Teams are given extra credit for winning by more than 17, and
          similarly punished if losing by more than 17.
          FCS teams are given extra credit against FBS teams, unless the
          FBS team is horrible (0-3 wins); more if the losses are 28 points
          or less.
          HBCUs vs HBCUs are treated the same.
          Now that we have a full season of results, each team and their
          opponents have received a "grade," A-F, with A,B,and C teams
          having winning records, and D,E, and F teams having losing
          records. .500 teams are either C or D teams depending on whether
          their power rating is positive (including 0.00), or negative.
          So the numbers will be modified to reflect these grades, as
          opposed to listing opponents simply as winners or losers.

1.  Bowie State 2.83
2.  Florida A&M 2.32
3.  Alcorn State 2.14
4.  Miles 1.92
5.  Southern 1.79
6.  N.C. A&T 1.77Virg
7.  Langston 1.65
8.  S.C. State 1.50
8.  Virginia State 1.50
10. West  Virginia State 1.45

There are not five HBCUs better than A&T. I don't like those dogs but fair is fair.  :no:

It is NOT an opinion poll.
That said compare top 10 match up results with where they ranked before the game. Better yet wait until next week when I will have everyone listed, knowing that there is only one game left.

GOOD!  They became _______'s team from getting the calls since 75.....until the CORRECT no catch call on DIZZ in the playoffs a few years back.  ;D

I still have the picture of the infamous "first down awarded" after the refs used a card to SHOW that they were short.

No Cowards fan can complain about the refs!

Don't be in the position to allow a missed call to decide or heavily influence the outcome.  The refs make WAY less mistakes than the players, and the occasional coaching "goof." Missed tackles; missed blocks, dropped passes, bad passes, bad routes, missed extra points, bad snaps............

Morgan State is the lead band, and is performing on the Today Show as I type.

Maybe it was losing two at home that did them in.

I don’t think D2 and D1 HBCUs should be tossed in the same basket in regards to NC. There should be a a NC for each division.  Just this poster’s humbled opinion.

If that's the case then there should be a Championship game. We tried that with the Pioneer Bowl. One sided attendance. Cold weather. Let's just leave it as it is. Let TRF and Powell Polls decide our Champion.

 :tiptoe: Well, you see I finally caved to my audience's wishes.

Oh well.  The Cowards have been getting the calls for YEARS so they don't need to cry. ;D ;D

Both Clark Atlanta and Elizabeth City lost to Allen.  :brickwall: That officially makes you the toe jam of your respective conferences. :no:

While no great achievement, Elizabeth City is NOT the worst team in the CIAA. :)
