I can't answer this question until after the final four committee explains their process and weighting factors so I can determine what direction I want to go.

In all probability, there won't be much scheduling of non D-1 teams anymore. Creating a weak schedule will most likely work against you.

I think it would be cool if schools scheduled one exhibition game against a FCS school in early August to act as a preseason fan fest day.

We should not be playing any FCS teams now. With the selection committee for the 4 team play off starting next season, strength of schedule will be critical. We have to play all FBS teams from now on.

This - Never did see the point in playing teams ike Wofford, Furman, Citadel etc. Even if they are in state and 'helps' them out.

Now with the playoff it makes even less sense.

But it now cuts the 1-AA schools out of their 1-A games which is a big boost to their budgets. I could see some 1-AA schools dropping FB.

There needs to be a way that games v. FCS schools does not count in the SOS ratings.

As far as playing in Fargo....just not sure our guys would enjoy this all things considered. What incentive is there for them to go do this? And if they win, they've just beat a team they should beat.
NDS needs to come to W-B.

We played Central Florida, in Orlando, this year. I think we've been fair playing East Carolina at neutral locations, and I think we're supposed to play them in Greenville, NC, one year. I don't think, in principle, we have a problem playing FCS schools, BUT...


...I think since Spurrier got here, we're trying to help the in-state schools, by playing them. It wouldn't help us to play 2 FCS schools. In fact, with the playoff system, everyone may have to stop playing FCS schools altogether.

The top FCS schools play good ball. FWIW, I think NDS loses something like 27seniors this year.

There is absolutely nothing to be gained by scheduling ND State.

This thread is a perfect example of people shooting from the hip and posting without even reading what the OP wrote. Just going off of what the title of the thread says, reading others posts and then adding their personal opinions.

Correct. Very few have actually grasped the purpose of the thread and the question.

No way we should ever play schools from Montana, Delaware or Puerto Rico! If they're not in the 49 states, we don't want 'em!

Ok...I'll bite...no I don't have confidence in winning a game like that because I don't know how much any team can get up for something like that. So I expect to go up there and lose.

How confident would you feel that USC would win if they traveled to play Eastern Washington University and played on some red turf?
