Sure, but as a fan, those stat accomplishments don't juice me up more than playing games vs. FBS natural rivals.

Uncle Ron really was forward thinking, given the terms "FCS" and "FBS" weren't used until 2006.

The folks I know think it was the best thing that has ever happened to App. You never hear the SoCon mentioned any more and most couldn't tell you who won it last year. There was a lot of brainwashing done by the Borkowski/Laney administration. Thei8r main fear factor points were we would have to cut sports, which we haven't. Would have to raise student fees excessively, hasn't happened. Most importantly would have to sacrifice academics in order to attract the talent to play FBS. Just the opposite has been true. 2016 class ave GPA was 3.53 & 2017 was 3.47. Jerry Moore pushed anti-moveup rhetoric out of selfish reasons of wanting to keep his job. When he was shown the door it split fan base. It was a rocky start and a lot of "I told you so's" were being tossed around. However, since half way through the '15 season we're 28-5 with 3 coming to National Runner up Clemson, # 9 Tennessee (in OT) & #25 Miami. These days the naysayers are nowhere to be found. Without question it's the best thing we've ever done.

But, have you been successful?
If you believe App St is not successful, what would App St have to accomplish to be successful? Of course they have been successful.
