Agreed, with Tulane football in the AAC the part of crud program with small fan base is already taken. We don't need another one.

Hmmm, looking back at the illustrious history of Cincinnati football, it appears you guys were nothing-burgers prior to the turn of the century. So really, you're just a nice little upstart program yourselves. I'm not sure why it took so long to become relevant in football. It looks like you joining a better league coincided with your program having a pulse. Why wouldn't the potential be there for WSU? Because of your insecurities of them?

It looks like to me when WSU was playing football, they would've held their own against the prowess of Cincinnati football.

01-wingedeagle Cincinnati has been in 13 Bowl games since 2000 including 2 BCS Bowls. Most football programs would give their left nut for that "upstart" history.

Uh, I believe the keywords to my post were "after the turn of the century". You must have missed it.

Sure it's a great, short history. And like I stated in my post, they benefited from being in a better conference. If WSU were to restart football in a better conference, I'm sure their odds at being relevant would be higher too, which renders trollcat's point moot.

Why does it matter how long it took them to "get there?" UCONN started in a BCS conference and never "got there." And let's be honest...Kansas is really no better than Connecticut when it comes to recruiting and football in general. Perhaps I should put this into terms that a WSU fan would understand...

Who would you rather be today - Indiana basketball or Gonzaga basketball?

But i still believe they should go slowly and build toward that goal if at all. Just make Cessna a college football ready venue and have a few nuetral site games to test the interest level. Contests that wouldn't lose money, but would fuel interest. What noone wants is a program draining their other sports of funds and notoriety.

Great troll job but seriously never bring up them playing football in the American again

Why the hostility, friend?
