Just wanted to make note of the fact that playoffs are a great way to gauge where a conference really is in terms of strength rather than relying on its reputation.
Because of its stellar success in the FCS Playoffs the last 5years, the CAA received 5 of the 20 spots. With 8 teams remaining, only a single CAA team is in the playoffs. This is very different than just last year when the CAA teams lost only two games in the playoffs. One semifinal game and the title game.
Last weekend, UNH, ODU, Towson and JMU all lost with only Maine moving ahead. In contrast, both UNI and No.Dak.St remain in the field. In a sense, we can infer that the Valley deserved more teams in the field and that the CAA was over represented.
