    Spineless. Yes, UND is ripe for ripping all the time, but one thing they did right was to cut programs rather than this kind of crap. You have to have a backbone when money is lean and make difficult decisions.

    The thing I find most interesting in all of this thread so far as an outsider is the constant banging on ďif CCU, App, and GSU weíre still FCS it would be SO DIFFERENT!!!Ē

    So youíre entire judgement on the competitiveness of the subdivision is three programs, one of which had never really created much noise other than a couple close losses to NDSU, GSU who had three deep runs in the playoffs after a six year drought and App? So really itís two quality programs and a flash in the pan that didnít have great facilities or backing for an FCS program and just dove into FBS without a real plan. Hell, after their last natty App has one deep run then one win in the playoffs in their last three appearances. Itís not impossible that they could have had as rough of a patch as Montana is having. Iím fairly certain that if Delaware and Montana get their shit together and you add on the rise of teams like JMU, SDSU, adding Idaho, and your yearly random MVFC team itís pretty easy to say those teams void is being replaced. Also, a team like Kennesaw sure seems like it could be poised to be a power.

    Really the main problem isnít just that two storied programs left. Itís that they left and two of the other historic programs bombed hard. Iím not saying you canít be pro FBS but to pretend the entire FCS is trash because two teams left is a bit much.

    So while delaware and Montana continue to be stuck in mud, sdsu and jmu are certainly likely to regress back to the pack after losing a shit ton of talent meanwhile ndsu will likely be just as good this yr....Then what are you saying?

    Most of us who can read the fcs landscape take what you just said with a grain of salt. Kennesaw st isn't going to pose a threat to ndsu this upcoming season. Sam Houston st isn't going to. JMU isn't. You guys aren't. Montana isn't.

    Who knows how good app and gsu would be. I know apps won a few bowl games and gsu has been more rocky than smooth with the move up...but there damn well would've been something brewing after the 2012 game when they came out during ndsus intros and punched them in the mouth and wasn't afraid of them at all. Of course having McKinnon helps
