They all asked me, "when are y'all (JMU) moving to FBS? Even fellow FCS opponents are scratching their heads at our "leadership."

Frankly, I think a lot of FCS folk would like to see us and NDSU gone.

Potomac gets to the heart of the matter: Does hosting games in Boone against Miami, UNC, Wake Forest and East Carolina make a difference if most of them will be losses?

Will the shine eventually wear off playing the likes of Arkansas State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, UA-Little Rock, UL-L, UL-M, South Alabama, Texas State and Troy every year?


Happy to take this bet too - in 10 years, mist Appers wont even remember having been FCS, let alone pine for the good ol days

Seeing how LR doesn't have a football team that game may never have much luster.

I think the appropriate comparison for long term fan appreciation would be Marshall and Boise State. Both programs are now over 20 years removed from FCS. While many fans will remember their days of FCS, it will be remembered as simply a step in their evolution.

Did you tell them coastal Carolina took the sun belt invitation that JMU turned down?

Wait, what? JMU never had an invitation, just ask Jon Alger or Jeff Bourne, they both have clearly publically said that JMU has never had a 1A invitation.

Fear of failure has never been an App State problem. We're scrappers who love to test ourselves against the best. We have a little chip on our shoulder because we're not Carolina or Duke so any chance to beat them and their peers is always welcome. We're not afraid to play schools who aren't the "right people", believe the wrong things, or come from the wrong neighborhood.

Plus, we grow, learn, benefit financially, help the town and merchants, and, have a rockin good time.

Don't know where we'll be 10 years from now but one thing is certain. We won't regret what could have been.
