    I will respectfully disagree...they have Lehigh on their schedule this year. They used to play Georgia Southern every year when they were FCS...which is why i thought the matchup would be interesting...they played close games and they were the same years we were playing GS in the playoffs.

    I assume the Navy GSU thing happened because of coach ties.. Didn't the GSU coach move on to Navy?

    I believe those are historical ties.

    Navy/Army will schedule schools that are traditional foes. Navy played Georgia Southern twice. Not "every year." If I had to guess that may be related to the triple option.

    My cousin is a West Point alum. He says they look at themselves very similar to ivy league schools and other elite east coast places. I'm guessing they have a lot of history with those schools.

    They aren't coming to Fargo.

    Paul Johnson, who led a renaissance of Georgia Southern football as their head coach in the late 90s and early 00s, went to Navy after the 2001 season. He's now the head coach at Georgia Tech.

    Eh Yale =/= NDSU. A lot of reaching going on here. Yale and army first played football vs each other in 1893, and quite a few times since. Also Yale is academic royalty and army has it's place. NDSU is none of these things.

    Actually it was a different HC. The other HC went to Georgia Tech. Navy has a pretty tough non-conf schedule normally, Notre Dame, Air Force, Army and one or two more...since they joined a conference. I think that is why they schedule some different games. This year they open in Hawaii for a non-conf, then come back to Memphis to open the conference...NDSU would not be a stretch. Probably the biggest think working against a game like this is the regional recruiting.

    I think Bama is a much bigger reach...but you are right...however it seems like scheduling FBS opponents is getting tougher...so you might as well dream.
