    Yep. Today was the first day for the new white helmets. I think a donor put up the money for them. Coach Simmons took a poll on Facebook last week asking for preferences in the decal to go on the sides (player’s number, HU or Bison. I couldn’t see them very well on live stream today but it looked like the Bison decal won.
    I went and checked photos from the game. Looks like some of the new helmets had the player’s number on the side and some had the HU symbol. Didn’t see a single helmet with the Bison decal. Oh well.

It's hard to say for certain, but there might be a desire to put in a second GAC team rather than a third MIAA team with the résumés being equal. Washburn's ranked win is better, but they have an unranked loss and Ouachita doesn't.
      You have asked the right question. Does the committee want conference balance in SR3, or do they prefer ranked win?---I have seen SR3 do each, granted in different years. Ranked loss versus unranked loss has not been something I have ever seen a committee consider.

      I do wonder if Washburn would get the nod, simply to keep a rematch from happening?

        The last spot is definitely between Washburn and Ouachita. Whichever one is in, will likely play at Harding. Lindenwood is a bus trip to Grand Valley so I think that is where they are going. I think you are going to see Kearney and Duluth switch out regions, if that happens Duluth will be at Northwest Missouri.
        Thanks Armo. Didn’t realize St. Charles, MO to Allendale, MI was under 600 miles. Do you think Harding stays at 2 or slips to 3 or possibly 4?

          They had player number on one side and HU logo on the other.

            Really hard to tell at this point, given today's results. Harding's SOS, as we know, is going to be .500, the real questions are where is GV's and NW's SOSs at this point and will the SOS really matters to the committee. If they view GV and NW SOSs and PIs as being artificially inflated due to playing less games, then I think there is great chance Harding stays in the #2 spot, as all three teams will be 4-1 against teams above .500, but Harding will likely be 2-0 against ranked opponents, while GV will be 0-1, and NW will be 1-1.

            Having said that, I think Harding could slide down to #4. Again, will just depend upon how the committee views things and where they choose to put their focus.

              I don't think Harding will drop below GVSU. Nothing has changed in the last week that would justify reversing the order of those two.

              My hunch is that NWMSU moves up to 3rd, between Harding and GVSU. All three now have the same record against opponents above .500; Harding has two ranked wins, NWMSU has one, and GVSU has zero. (I'm expecting SEOSU to stay in the top 10.)

                Just curious Inkblot, why do you believe SE will still be in the Top 10?

                  Pittsburg State and Michigan Tech are the only other serious contenders for 10th, and both have zero ranked wins compared to SEOSU's two.

                    Gotcha. Makes total sense.
