They play in the big 10, more than half of their teams should be in the FCS anyway.
Thats funny...They dont want another App St to go down like it did with Michigan! LOL!
And to be honest with as weak as that conf is every game is like homecoming. If your conf schedule includes...Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, Iowa and the like...Do you need to play weaker schools??
Ron...Have they floated any of the new names for the divisions yet? I think some of the ones we came up with on this board were not only fitting but very appropriate.
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
Not yet, but they're supposed to change in 2014...

If ya scared, say scared.
For the shear arrogance, after naming their divisions The leaders and the legends, they will probably name it the champion conference.....
I see where they are coming from, but Honestly the only reason I accept playing FCS when we could always play a "Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, or Iowa" is because I look at it as giving back to the smaller schools. They make a ton of money during those games. Those teams make 2/3's of their whole year's operating expenses if not more in one game with a school like Auburn. That's huge and the Big (?) just shot its smaller northern schools in the gut by passing that rule. Congrats Big (?) on yet another brilliant move.

Who is Indiana going to get their two wins against?
I think this is a pretty smart move for them. They have been trying to increase the number of compelling games on schedules for several years.
