About Shayn Roby

I am someone who aims to make our world a better place, by engaging one person at a time. I am learning to be more civil toward people with viewpoints different from my own. Perhaps showing true compassion towards others and achieving mutual understanding is the best way to achieve that goal. I am a public school educator and am devoted to inspiring my students to seek knowledge and to think for themselves. I also seek to be a Christlike for them and everyone else, each and every day.

Monmouth and Sam Houston St. hold the top statistically rated spots among FCS teams in this most recent edition of the Roby Ratings. It’s anticipated by the editor that both of these teams may fall in the ratings after facing one of the several teams from the Missouri Valley Conference or James Madison in the FCS Spring Playoffs. Time will tell.

#78 Richmond (3-0) 0.45

#79 Alabama A&M (2-0) 0.33

#80 Holy Cross (2-0) 0.27

Editor’s Note: It is fully expected that the North Dakota St. Bison may actually beat most of these teams and win another FCS National Title. Their loss to Southern Illinois may have created a statistical anomaly from which they will demonstrate was just that when playoff season begins. Their performance this weekend against the Jackrabbits of South Dakota St. may give a true indication of where ND State’s season will end up. ***Full disclosure must be given as the wife of the editor grew up on the campus of SDSU.***
