    WTF, just saw that Utah State @ Wisconsin is on ESPN, rather that UW @ Rutgers? That makes zero sense to me.

    Yall thought I had killed myself.

    But in all honesty I just don't know what to think.

    We lost the first game in our new stadium to an FCS level team. This is not the first time we've been embarrassed like this (an FCS loss on homecoming, an NAIA loss, a DII loss...in fact we've only won 20 games).

    Yes this is a new coach and in four years the old one recruited so poorly that it was non existent. But we have the same problems as always: 49 yards rushing (!), four turnovers to their none, no playcalling that's worth a damn....it's alarming that the coachable aspect of the game is seemingly not going to progress. Our HC is an 0-line specialist but you wouldn't have been able to tell.

    I don't know what to think. I have season tickets and free food at the games but shit...I don't want to go.

    Don't play FCS teams?

    Never understood what the point was of playing FCS teams. Not going to help you get better.

    Georgia State's problem is more like....they should still be an FCS team. Too many schools pushed into the top tier, and there's only so much FBS caliber talent, both players and coaches. I don't know what the plan was there, it's not like they were a powerhouse in FCS even.

    Yeah, but even when legit teams like Michigan, Tennessee, etc play FCS it seems like all downside.

    You crush them- great you beat a team who isn't even in your division, no one is impressed. You play them close or lose, makes you look shitty.

    Plus, usually you have to pay the FCS teams to play you.

    Big schools make more money playing at home. Something like $3-$6M per home game. You cut a check to an FCS school for $500k-$1M everyone wins. FCS school makes budget, big school gets a home game, coaches get a glorified scrimmage, big school players get to pad their stats.

    $$$$$

    Colonial athletic association was great as a hoops only team. But our closest football opponent was a 2.5 hour flight away....to Boston.

    Also we were asked to move up. What do you say to That? Naw were good as an FCS cellar dweller. You think we'd ever get another invite?

    Should the program have developed more? Maybe but that wasn't an issue for the other Sun Belt presidents so it didn't matter.

    Texas A&M...lol. Up 44-10 early in the 3rd and loses 45-44.

    Short of A&M running the table, I don't see Sumlin lasting after this season.

    I wish I caught the OU-OSU game - I need to see how bad we will get stomped at the beginning of October.
