    Who was the worst team to win an FCS title? Lowest seed to win?

    Do HBCUs count? I ask since Jay Walker calls it a national title.

    Montana State literally went from being complete ****, to national champions, to complete **** again in three years time. So I'm just gonna assume the entire FCS laid down and died for them in 1984

    WKU's title might be the most non-descript. The Hilltoppers entered the playoffs ranked 15th. They did end GSU's run (post AP) and beat #1 McNeese State in the title game. Interestingly, McNeese St. easily took care of WKU 38-13 in Lake Charles earlier in the year.

    They nearly shutdown the program in the early 90's, played as an independent, had a cup of coffee in the OVC and moved onto FBS soon after their title.

    WKU was in the Missouri Valley (Gateway back then.) How do I remember? First, their leaving the MVFC opened a spot for SDSU and, by extension, NDSU. Second, they were involved in a postgame fight involving a sledgehammer with Western Illinois which resulted in some efforts to improve sportsmanship in our new conference.

    Very small sample size, but EWU didn't look that awesome to me when they won their title.

    It's hard to find a bad team that wins the title. But there are a few that to me stick out as being below average as far as title teams.

    I was never overly impressed with EWU's 2010 team. That was probably not even the best EWU team of the past 15 years. Felt like Delaware was the better team and choked it away.

    I also think Richmond's 2008 team was kind of sup-par, too. If Armanti Edwards isn't hobbling around on that hip pointer App State would've won 4 straight IMO.

    I've never watched them on tape, but I suspect that Northeast Louisiana team in 1987 wasn't great as well.
    Six National Championships. All won via a playoff in the second highest level of football.
