I edited the old post to get some more readers comments. Thanks to those who posted. It was originally about FAU and FIU. I've read where FAU and FIU seriously increased the athletic and recreation fee that's built into tuition in order to support DivI football.
I am all for smaller schools competing in DivIA...(Boise state, Bowling Green, UTEP) but there has to be a limit. I'm sorry, but without a playoff, teams like FIU and FAU will NEVER be competitive...they will always be sucker teams for the big schools.
All the NCAA can do is add another stupid bowl game so these teams can play in December. So why not just stay at Div.II level where they can compete and actually win?
