    That isn't really my argument, their horrific results against YSU and WIU are why they don't belong. At some point you need to win football games or at the very least show up ready to play. UNI, WIU, ISUB and ISUR are just bubble filler, no better or worse than teams like Montana or Montana State.

    The Army/Colgate game will tell just how good Colgate is. It's hard to tell how good their defense is because the teams they played were bottom feeders. On their schedule, only Holy Cross averaged more than 20 ppg at 23.6 and is good for 92nd best out of 124 teams in the FCS. To date, Colgate has faced these offenses: 92 Holy Cross, 107 Cornell, 112 New Hampshire, 114 Fordham, 116 Lehigh, 117 William & Mary, 119 Georgetown, 120 Lafayette and 123 Bucknell. Granted, Colgate has done all they can to impress with a 3 ppg defense, but their opponents on the whole are only scoring 16 ppg on the season. Another factor to consider is the opponents have a won loss of 27-61 with only Georgetown having a .500 or better record.

    Colgate is 2-0 vs CAA so they are winning the tougher games. However, looking at averages, they scored 10 pts on UNH (17.5 ppg) and 23 on W&M (28.2).
    Colgate needs a good showing vs Army to answer the skeptics. It should be noted that Army is 8-2 and gave a good P5 team all they wanted earlier in the season. If Colgate should win this game I would seed them higher than 8. If they get blown out they may drop out of top 8 IMO.
