    Savannah State going back to Division II

    Six National Championships. All won via a playoff in the second highest level of football.

    they tried.......I don't know, but if they do have any 1A games signed for 2019 and forward, they most likely will be cancelled/bought out....

    With their financial issues, it is probably a good move. It also helps the MEAC as it gets them to an even number of 12 (ten football), which will make scheduling a lot easier. The only problem for the conference is that it drops them to five teams for men's golf, with one being an associate member. I think you need six for an autobid.

    Good riddance for the FCS? Yes.
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    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.

    They weren't exactly hot as a D2 team either. I don't think they've had a wining season since like 1994.

    I wouldn't call it a "Lot" by any stretch. Its the same group led by Willie Walker who aren't happy with the decision. Keep in mind this same group was pushing for Savannah State to go D1 despite being told by both the SWAC and MEAC that they weren't ready for such a move. SSU made the move anyway and was without a conference home for a decade.
