No kidding that James Madison ND ST FCS title game should be a great one, better than most of the FBS bowl games. MAC East with James Madison and Marshall would be a significantly stronger division

I agree. If the AAC won't have us I'd like to return home.

The MAC has been relatively stable for decades. C-USA has had so much turnover that it's been impossible to develop an identity as a conference. Add on top of that that the MAC is the only G5 conference in their region while C-USA is in direct geographic competition with the Sun Belt and some of the AAC and it's no surprise that C-USA has struggled in that regard.

The best thing for both the Sun Belt and C-USA would be for both sides to drop their egos and re-organize into an eastern and western conference.

Pretty much spot on. There are a few programs with prestige still left in CUSA, just not enough to carry the entire conference. USM, Marshall are good examples, but then you have charlotte..........nuf said and before this year you could lump the F_U's in there as well, winning for extended periods produces prestige, so one season or two or three doesn't make a program, ask WKU. Only 2, arguably 3 programs have football tradition, USM, Marshall and maybe LT. There is more with basketball tradition, even if they have not lived up to it recently, ODU, WKU, UAB, UTEP, Charlotte. I personally would advocate making a pitch to go back to the MAC if there ever was any talk of sunbelt merger. I want no part of that, and I am sure USM doesn't either.

I agree that the Belt and CUSA need to do a member swap to form an east and west conference. the dumbest thing, out of many, that CUSA did was think "markets" mattered when doing the last realignment. Should have just picked the best football programs.

Oh, and for the Toledo fan that said FAU wouldn't beat Akron as bad as Toledo did...

They went for it on 4th and 14 with 2 mins left up by 47...lol. Kiffin doesnt have the agenda Candle and Toledo did. We let up 38-0. Its not how we play. Both games were blowouts with a quarter left.

Btw the non targeting in that game was the worst call ive ever seen. Head hunted late and didnt get called. Unbelievable.

Yeah, and Toledo has a coach that took his foot off the gas when we were up 38-0 in the third quarter. Kiffin has his starting QB throwing in the last minute of the game. Not much class exhibited there. I was surprised that Akron pretty much gave up.
As for the score differential, in the MCC we shot ourselves in the foot with 5 turnovers, that score for all intense purposes was heading for the 60’s. Akron did scrap more in Detroit than what I saw tonight...

Yeah, I couldn't believe they waived that off. It was a helmet directly to the chin three steps AFTER the ball went sailing by. 01-wingedeagle

FAU scored their first TD with 1:08 left in the first quarter. From that point on they averaged a TD every 5 minutes throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarter and into the first 4 minutes of the 4th. They scored no points in the final 11 minutes and that wasn't because Akron's defense all of a sudden figured out their offense.

They only threw the ball 25 times and ran it 60 times. If Kiffen wanted it could have been at least 64-3.

Oh, and I agree on the targeting. Horrible non-call.
