And Delaware. And Youngstown State (2017 not withstanding). And McNeese. And Sam Houston State. And Jacksonville State. And Lehigh. And Furman.
I think Big Sky's improvement at the top (besides EWU) had been good for FCS. Regionally, I think it would be really good for FCS if Southland had more teams competing at high level .. this year seemed like an improvement with 3 stronger bids, and IMO certainnly more deserving than the 3 bids they got last year .. especially with SoCon slipping further this year. As for Colonial, JMU has been carrying them of late ... while they are deep with pretty good teams, the quality at top of conference has slipped. But having strong teams spread across country .. West (Big Sky), Midwest (MVFC), South (Southland) and East (Colonial) .. I think helps with rankings, playoff and top 8 seed chatter across the entire country.
Now we just need someone to knock NDSU off their throne a little more often. Someone besides JMU.
