Villanova has a strong history well before and during the FBS, they aren't upstart at all.

I think UCF needs, if they really want to schedule FCS teams, up-and-coming and good programs. This program is going to go places.

I feel the same way about UCF. We need some neighborly Florida competition.
University of Georgia has University of Florida.
Georgia Tech gets Miami AND Florida State.
Georgia State played in the non-football Sunbelt with USF from '76-'81 and some combo of UCF, FIU, and FAU in the TAAC/A-Sun from '91 to '05. I would love to get a gridiron rivalry going with any number of these former conference mates.

That is what I was thinking.

Florida-Georgia
Florida State-Georgia Tech
Central Florida-Georgia State

They are in a tough spot. They have a great program but it doesnt appear they can compete in FBS. The BE need strong programs that can compete now at a BCS AQ level. Unless Villanova can demonstrate that they have a plan that calls for a 40k to 50k seat stadium in the next 5 or 6 years then they should be rejected. Will be interesting to see how that one plays out.

Semantics. It will actually be less than that I suppose. Point is you guys fit the model of southern crescent urban universities going from startup to FBS in 5 years or less.

Georgia State freshman class sets records
By Laura Diamond
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Nearly 4,075 freshmen -- a record for Georgia State University -- will be walking around the downtown Atlanta campus when classes resume Aug. 22. The freshman class is about 7 percent larger than last year's and is the university's most diverse, officials said Friday.
The campus is known for its diversity and the freshman class set records in two areas -- 16 percent of freshmen are Asian and 9 percent are Hispanic. The majority of freshmen are minorities, with 34 percent of the students black and 41 percent white.

After next week it may be...

Georgia-Florida-FSU
Georgia Tech-Miami (and or USF)
GSU-UCF (and or USF)

...anyone need our AD's phone number?

they're doing everything right and they're going to be successful sooner than later unlike some other schools that have been doing this type of move half-assed

I'm certainly rooting for them to succeed;
