OK for a STUPID question, What is “FCS”?

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Well, I look at this from another perspective. Actually those smaller schools that lose 56-0 against bigger schools benefit from the television money that otherwise their schools would not see.
They need to drop Purdue, Illinoise, and Indiana. They are about as good as an FCS school too.
Appalachian State 34 Michigan 31
That’s cause they’re scared to play Appalachian State again.
Ohhh...so that’s why there’s is talk about Indiana and WKU renewing their home and home contract.
You mean those guys who forgot to go the national championship game?
That said, the money received by 1AA schools for games against 1A schools is a significant portion of their athletic revenue for that year. It is also the only opportunity for 1AA players to play on the big stage.
This may not last long.
FBS universities, even the smaller ones, are becoming very resistant to signing contracts for away-only games. And the bigger schools would take quite a hit by losing a home game if they schedule more home-and-away series (for instance, Michigan’s stadium holds over 100,000 people; that’s a lot of attendance money).
It will be interesting to see how it works out.
