    Is the third A in Appalachian a long or short A?

    FWIW, the MHB stadium is better than a lot of I-AA facilities:

    This here. Also, as I saw posted by another in a different thread, as long as a program is following the rules of their level they can compete wherever they want (generally time will expose those that aren't following the rules, hopefully NDSU has been in compliance throughout the run).

    Now on the other hand, anytime fans of top FCS programs try to claim schools that do not fund scholarships or choose not to participate in the playoffs do not belong in FCS, they are equally wrong.

    The buy out on the bowl games and subsequent exposure probably outweighs the FCS playoffs.

    Not to mention when you play FBS you just make more money.

    If you go FBS, you'll make more money, possibly play more home regular season games and have to worry about no more than 2-3 post season games, whereas at FCS, if you're decent you play at least 4 games.

    One's values may say that competing for a championship blah blah blah is better, but from a financial standpoint it's a no-brainer (if you have the chance). The argument about conference affiliation isn't a bad argument, but I would say it's more of a risk than it is a sure counterpoint.

    Re: Four reasons NDSU should stay FCS

    I'm all about FCS getting bigger and better so the big time programs in terms of facilities JMU NDSU UD MU MSU are all good to stay in my book, regardless of the fact that Ive found the playoffs to be getting duller due to NDSU's dominance. Rather keep them and get rid of the merrimacks and marists of the FCS

    Honestly, if anything, NDSU's dominance may serve as incentive for these bigger programs to move up. Why stick around and compete for a championship if you're not actually going to win one?

    Like who? GSU, Gstate, ODU, APP, and Liberty all had aspirations of FBS before NDSU became a dynasty.

    Umass, just a bunch of idiots in my book. I think they are doomed to drop football. They refuse to come back to FCS and No FBS conference will take them.

    Wouldn't it have been better for both UMass and UConn to stay in FCS?

    App State and GSU did not.

    I could see JMU going FBS soon, but that's an obvious one.

    tough question to answer, Uconn football is ****ed as well. They aren't going to big ten or ACC. Dropping the program is also more likely than an FCS move for either program.

    And 96.3% of FBS fans neither know this or care.
