RE: 2012 football schedule
Statman,
Question for you and I realize that this is somewhat off the thread topic.

How many of last seasons CU players, in your opinion, could have played for a D-1 or D-1AA program?

RE: 2012 football schedule
I think "play" is a dangerous word. There are certainly guys on the Campbell team that could contribute on special teams and spot play but to be a consistent starter on an average or better I-AA team, I'd say no.

The biggest gap for most of those guys is the speed gap. ODU is a perfect example. They are certainly bigger faster and stronger and the reason for that is scholarships. They get guys that CU can't. Plain and simple. Does that mean CU doesn't have good players? Absolutely not! You ask most teams CU play and they would say technically CU is very good.

I am not just saying CU is in this situation...I think all PFL teams lack that talent even JU. JU had to scratch and claw to beat the WORST Big South team in Charleston Southern who went 0-11. For the most part most PFL teams struggle against any scholarship program that is in a playoff bid league.

I think expecting CU to compete year in and year out with good scholarship programs is like asking Appy State to beat Michigan, Ohio State and LSU in back to back to back years. They got one...great but most the time they get thumped pretty good.

I've heard a possible future opponent might be a Baptist school from Georgia that competes in NAIA and whose name implies it's "not as tall as other schools."

Watch out for those NAIA programs because they can get sneaky good REAL quick! The reason...they can get kids in school that NCAA programs cannot because of easy academic qualifying rules.

Would love for it to be an FCS school. Wonder how Thursday night attendance will compare to Saturdays?

Marist has released their '12 schedule and they visit CU November 17 (possibly the last game of the season).
