So, perhaps those of y'all with open dates and looking for a game could encourage your AD's to give Fargo some consideration. Great weather in September, among the best tailgating in college football and you'll be welcomed warmly, plus, good gosh, who DOESN'T want to see Fargo at least once in their lifetime? We'd love to see some new faces in the dome. And we'll treat you nice, right up to kickoff.
    Surprised by this. Quick, any Ivy interested in scheduling the top tier FCS teams such as this?

    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    That's really cool. I know that some of the HBCU "classics" are tradition out east and in the south, but we haven't seen much of them in the Midwest right? I don't think I'd heard about this one or the one in Chicago before last year. Am I just way out of the loop, or are they relatively new?

    The Chicago Classic has been going since 1997. For the last 4 seasons there hasn't been any FCS HBCUs in the game it's been SIAC and CIAA HBCUs playing in it until this season where Grambling is a participant. The Circle City Classic has ben going since 1983 but like the Chicago Classic since 2013 its been Central D2 HBCUs from SIAC/CIAA participating. Both the Chicago Classic and Circle City Classic attendance have fallen since the FCS HBCUs haven't been playing in them. Attendance for these two were usually over the 50,000 mark with the FCS HBCUs have now fallen around the 30,000 mark with the D2s. The Circle City Classic is usually one of the most attended Classics but the matchups lately haven't gotten the buz like they once did when it was the larger HBCUs playing.

    Ah, I see. So they've been going for a while, just not FCS in recent history. That would explain why I hadn't heard much about them. Thanks for the info.
