    Default FCS playoff expansion?? hahahaha

    oh HELL NO. NDSU better fight this or LEAVE the FCS asap.

    But the FBS playoffs aren't the only college football postseason event that could potentially change formats. What about the FCS Playoffs?

    At least one conference commissioner tells me he favors expanding that as well

    Big Fluffy Commissioner wants this.. because of the 2 new AQ's.


    puke.

    look at this 1st reply:

    @SlightlyOffKeys
    To me, anyone saying no to playoff expansion thinks more schools dilute the integrity of the championship itself.

    I disagree.

    It actually allows more schools the chance to end the status quo of elite FCS programs winning, thus empowering parity in an NCAA division that needs it


    LOL wut ?
    NDSU TO FBS. PLEASE PLEASE! JAIL & EL CHAPO DONT MIX

    MVFC's own commissioner was backing this idea not long ago and I assume still does/would. Gross

    If FCS playoffs expand can everyone get a participation trophy?

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow.

    McFeely agrees with you guys in today's Fargo Forum...

    As El Chapo mentioned, the rub seems to be that there will be 2 new autobids and that will most likely reduce the number of teams from the FCS power conferences that gets into the playoffs.

    Dumb idea... they could add two more AQs and still keep it at 24 since there's only 10 AQs now and they need to have at least as many at-large as AQs. If the MEAC went back to wanting an AQ along with the newly formed ASUN and WAC then things would have to expand beyond 24 (or I'd prefer they just take away the Pioneer's autobid).

    But expanding the playoffs would primarily help the MVFC, Big Sky, and CAA because they're the conferences who most likely get teams squeezed out by having two fewer at-large bids. Still it's a dumb idea... if a team has 3 or 4 teams finish higher than them in the conference standings they shouldn't expect a playoff spot.

    Yeah, even at 12 AQ the 24 team format seems fine to me. They just have to give the byes to the right teams, but that’s the biggest issue regardless of the number of AQs.

    Sounds like they want to get rid of the byes too

    Izzo had McFeely on his show this morning and they talked about it a bit there too. They both think it's ridiculous and has all the stink of what happened in D2 back in the late 80s. They are both right and there would be no bigger sign to me that NDSU needs to get the hell out of the FCS than if this were to come to pass.
