    Well, that would be the path of least resistance. Studying on it though, I figure like you probably figure, BS could be interpreted many different ways. Methinks I will stick with Big South and look toward a stronger conference going forward. Besides, the more letters the more I can work on my hunt and peck skills.

    My wife is an alum of Campbell University. I would love to see the Vandals play the Camels.

    Oh wow, 5-5 is an amazing record when you’re down to your 4th string qb who isn’t even really a qb.

    I have a young friend who graduated from Campbell and they are on UNA' s schedule this year. Looking forward to the game against a future Big South stablemate. A Camel-Vandal game would be interesting. Hopefully, y'all have a strong marriage that can manage. Here in the state of Alabama we have many a house divided.

    Normally I would say my team did the best they could with the hand they were dealt. The one point loss in the first game was accompanied by 4 or 5 missed field goals and an unnecessary safety on our part. So, we had our chances to do better than 5-5.
    Your earlier post touched on one thing that will be key going forward and that is recruiting. Lots of competition for the available talent at the FCS/FBS level in this part of the country. May be a learning curve.

    Not exactly Princeton beating out Alabama for a QB, but Dartmouth just picked up QB Jack Alexander, whose best scholarship offer was from Idaho.

    The addition of Alexander gives what appears to be a very strong incoming class for Dartmouth a quarterback. We had guy decommit to go to Air Force last month.

    Best of luck to Dartmouth. Idaho would love to begin games against Ivy League teams. I think we are ok at QB. Our recruiting has been somewhat solid in this area with Colton Richardson as the forerunner.

    This is what our current roster looks like for QBs going into next year:
    5 Dylan Lemle QB 2-Jun 190 FR Los Angeles, CA
    4 Mason Petrino QB 11-May 173 SO Pullman, WA
    19 Colton Richardson QB 4-Jun 230 FR Lewiston, ID
    12 AJ Woodin QB 10-May 192 JR Beaverton, OR

    Here is our lone QB recruit from the 2018 class:
    Nikhil Nayar

    One thing you’ll learn is that Ivy League schools are in their own little bubble in FCS. They schedule patriot league teams and in-state caa teams (sometimes). That’s about it.
    I know JMU has recently reached out to at least one ivy to schedule a series but they wouldn’t bite for some reason.

    Brown will be flying out to Cal Poly this year. I just think it would be a very unique series to begin with these schools.

    I believe cal poly is pretty well ranked academically. They feel more inclined to schedule who they see as “academic peers” and who may also present a competitive game. By getting taken to the woodshed by high end fcs teams, ivy schools can’t try to act like they’re still playing the old I-A ball they used to.
    Ivy schools don’t compete in the FCS playoffs and use the “student athlete academic focus” as the excuse. Meanwhile their other D1 programs still compete in postseason tournaments.

    Edit: upon further research, cal poly isn’t that high ranking at all. A bit surprised.
    11th ranked west regional university. Not bad but I was expecting a top 100 National University.
    JMU is 7th south regional by comparison.
