Back in the days when Montana Tech, Carson-Newman, Arkansas Monticello, Concordia-St Paul were staples on your schedule?
Seeing a crappy Weber St or NAU who were D2 at the time doesn't mean you followed I-AA football back then.
Indeed. The real gut blow for FCS, IMO, has been the complete decimation of the Southern Conference to either teams leaving or traditional powers just fading away. No one really liked the SoCon when they were the dominant conference for 2 or 3 decades, but there was no doubt they were the bellwether of the subdivision.
