I am pretty sure the kick was done not on 4th down so no chance to handle a bad snap situation if that would have happened.

Good luck against the Bison. This is IMHO the most dominant NDSU team I have seen since I have been keeping track of conference stats. They led conference in every defensive stat category. On offense, their only stat weakness was passing yardage but when you can run the ball like they do, why waste the effort passing the ball.
Right, but if you look at passing efficiency, they're one of the best. They don't pass often, but when they do, they're accurate and very effective. And by "they", I'm pretty much taking about Easton Stick.

Those FCS committee members nailed the top 8 picks spot on. I wonder if that has ever happened before. I am becoming a believer in the Simple Ratings System and other polls but you need to measure thrice, favor head to head matchups (Weber over E Wash) and strength of schedule (Maine over Colgate) where appropriate.

Seed Team = (Coaches Poll + StatsPoll + SimpleRatingsSystem) = Total
1 North Dakota State = {1+1+1) = 3
2 Weber State = (4+3+8) = 15
3 Eastern Washington = (3+4+4) = 11

4 Kennessaw St = (2+2+10) = 14
5 South Dakota St = (5+5+7) = 17
6 UC Davis = (10+7+5) = 22
7 Maine = (14+12+15) = 41
8 Colgate = (7+9+6) = 22
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

This is the first time in the recent playoff structure that all 8 seeds have made the quarterfinals (since 2010). In 2009 we were still at 16 teams and seeding 4, so all games had at least one unseeded team at that point.
