Re: 2008 Montana OOC

So next year must be one of those years where teams can play 12 games, if the Griz are scheduling 4 OOC games. If all 3 of those games listed are home games then maybe they are looking for a play-up, FBS road game to open the season? Having 3 home OOC games plus the 4 home conference games would giv...

Re: Downside to our win??

I think it would be hard to hush it up. Many of these games are booked far ahead and are public knowledge. If it suddenly got dropped from the schedule, how would we not know what happened? We already have an FBS game booked every year until 2011. Most of our fans know the list. They are not a quie...

Re: Portland State loses qb, fullback to season ending injuries

Since the Vikings use the Run & Shoot, I'm surprised they even had a fullback. I was surprised they had a fullback, too. So, I went over to the PSU message board and posted a question about that. The response I got was essentially that PSU sees the fullback as a 6th offensive lineman who is back th...

Re: Downside to our win??

As I said above, I think FCS schools will have scheduling problems in the future because of the App win and some success that other FCS schools have had against the FBS in recent years. Games that are already scheduled will probably stay in place but trying to schedule future games will be tougher. ...

Re: Downside to our win??

I would guess it will be more difficult for App State to schedule FBS games in the future as a result of the Michigan win. To a certain degree, that game may make it more difficult for most FCS schools to schedule those games in the future. Or, if the FBS schools schedule a FCS school, the payout wo...
