    Default App State

    Looking at the most recent AP rankings... App State came in at #25! Good for them! Love to see former FCS powers make it and be successful. Their only loss was on the road to Penn State by 7 points. They were able to be ranked playing a Sunbelt schedule. Big game this week against another former FCS beast in Georgia Southern

    I thought that was pretty cool too. Ndsu was mentioned briefly on ESPN 2 while discussing UCF and their resume. Said Appy State, NDSU and Fresno State have the same type of resume. I was shocked and pleasantly surprised that we were even mentioned at in CFP Top 25 show.

    Don't think the FCS is missing much from these two. NDSU would crush both these teams. Good grief how is AppSt ranked 25th?

    so for all your FBS nay sayers.

    Appy State was ranked #25 and has had some huge P5 wins.

    Georgia Southern is 7-1 and will be ranked #25 this week probably and they beat #8 Florida 2 years ago.


    Both on ESPN 2-3 times in season.


    Sign me up for that!
    Can I please come back? Ill put a disclaimer in sig that bisonville isn't responsible for my comments. FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?

    I would have to disagree on FCS missing them. They were a huge loss for the FCS.

    Soooo, can you name one of those P5 wins? The last one I see for App State was against Michigan back when they were in FCS

    Year TeamId Result
    2008 LSU L 13-41
    2010 Florida L 10-48
    2011 Virginia Tech L 13-66
    2013 Georgia L 6-45
    2014 Michigan L 14-52
    2015 Clemson L 10-41
    2016 Miami (FL) L 10-45
    2016 Tennessee L 13-20
    2017 Georgia L 10-31
    2017 Wake Forest L 19-20
    2018 Penn State L 38-45

    And GSU beat Florida before they were in FBS too (their first FBS year was 2014):

    Year TeamId Result
    2014 Georgia Tech L 38-42
    2015 West Virginia L 0-44
    2015 Georgia L 17-23
    2016 Georgia Tech L 24-35
    2016 Mississippi L 27-37
    2017 Auburn L 7-41
    2017 Indiana L 17-52
    2018 Clemson L 7-38


    NDSU v P5 in the same time frame:

    Year TeamId Result
    2014 Iowa State W 34-14
    2016 Iowa W 23-21


    Georgia Southern and Appalachian State are basically the NJ Generals for the P5 Globetrotters.

    You're really not giving those teams enough credit. Over the past few years they have been playing competitive ball with some of the biggest P5 teams. Sure they haven't been winning (hence your Washington Generals comment) but they have been getting better and better. You could argue during the same time frame that NDSU could have done at least as well as they have in the FBS and against the P5. The difference is that Appy State and GSU have the opportunity to prove their worth while NDSU (no matter what we do) does not have that opportunity and in comparison plays a MUUUUUCCCCCCHHHHH weaker schedule
