    FCS schools beat FBS schools all the time. Doesn't mean they should be in the same NCAA Division.

    You are saying we are below ULM, in IMO we need to beat them to be able to say that we are over them.

    Am I being trolled here?

    We have outclassed them academically, athletically and financially.

    You mean like we out classed them in football last season?

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut. We played like crap that night. They got lucky. May be another 10 years before they beat us.

    Acknowledging the benefit of more money does not equate to prostituting your program. That is what they do. We are not them. We shouldn't even be in the same NCAA Division. You are comparing apples to oranges.



    Again, you're comparing 2 very different programs. The budgets of Stokely and Bustle are ancient history. Scheduling back then was a symptom of the problem, not the cause.
    Preseason rank means nothing, it's your entire season that matters and how you finish. We lost to Texas the first week of the season and won 13 consecutive games and a championship. That's how we finished ranked in a full season, and not a Covid season.

    According to our athletic department, our Budget was cut $8M to $10M during Covid. So while we may not be at Bustle or Stokely Era budgets, it has been reduced drastically the last 2 years and will probably take another hit this year.

    The staff and our athletic director both want the sixth home game, for different reasons. And extra game at home keeps us competitive and the tickets and ancillary revenue from a home game helps our budget. Playing multiple P5 programs on the road yearly is, prostituting your football program.

    The football program will have the opportunity to make a statement every year with 1 P5 game. Outside of extraordinarily rare challenges like the 2020 where games were canceled due to a pandemic, I will never agree with your vision of playing 7 road games in a season. We've been there and done that.

    Preseason rankings have a definite impact on ranking potential the rest of the season. ... provided the wins are there.

    Not being on the opening day radar is a large mountain to climb. Out of sight out of mind.

    You do need the subsequent wins to make aweness stick though.

    Sometimes those squirrels get head coaches fired.

    That was told to a few supporters, they didn't like it either. It's never acceptable.

    Vehemently disagree.

    Not denying that. Just wanted to make it clear that we are still a long way from ulm.

    The staff and our athletic director both want the sixth home game, for different reasons. And extra game at home keeps us competitive and the tickets and ancillary revenue from a home game helps our budget. Playing multiple P5 programs on the road yearly is, prostituting your football program.
    Nothing helps your budget like playing a P5. It is only prostitution if you schedule them knowing you have no chance in Hades.

    6th home game? Would that be on a Tuesday or Wednesday? Against Eastern Kalamazoo State of Ohio? I'll pass....

    ... I will never agree with your vision of playing 7 road games in a season. We've been there and done that.
    The last season where we played less than 7 road games was 2015. I'm counting the Bowl games as road games. Are they not? Look, what do you think a regular season P5 game is? It's a de facto Bowl game where we get way more payout than an end of year Bowl game.
