    Re: Permanent 12th Game Option for the FCS: agree or disagree?

    Well the other nice thing with this is it would open up more dates hence possibly making a bit easier to get those 11th games scheduled.

    It would also allow more flexibility in scheduling bye-weeks.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    Clemson and Alabama both played 15 games last year.
    With a 12-game schedule, a FCS team could possibly play 17 games in a season, a shorter season at that.
    As long as it's optional, I don't care. It will be interesting to see how the vote goes, as I suspect a lot of college presidents will not want a longer schedule, and a significant number of schools will have very poor attendance the week prior to labor day.

    No more depressing a stat that Penn is drawing 5,990 a game in Franklin Field. A quick look over at thw NCAA site reveals these attendance numbers in 1982, just 25 seasons ago:

    Lehigh at Penn: 11,154
    Colgate at Penn: 12,212
    Columbia at Penn: 13,563
    Yale at Penn: 32,175
    Harvard at Penn: 34,756

    I think that it's accepted that Penn plays in front of the most empty seats these days--at least when the Harvard-Yale game is at Harvard.

    Does anyone know the answer here? Does this mean FCS football would start a week earlier or would the playoffs get bumped back a week?

    Take YSU for an example; Last year under a 12 game schedule, the Guins would have played 17 game in one season Great for the fans hard on the athlete.

    Not sure it is really needed in FCS.

    I don't see the point of this. There's no money in FCS football. It's too hard to find 3 sensible OOC games, let alone 4.
