If we continue downward spiral with Carey then I'd agree FCS is the route.

ISU plays in FCS football and they are one of the top 30 teams. Have them play games during the week and see how that works out for them.

What we are doing now is not working and it is sad for those of us who have followed the program for decades through thick and thin.

Being one of the winningest FBS programs in recent history and beating Big Ten programs at their own stadiums regularly is "not working"?

Hosting Youngstown State instead of U of Ohio is supposed to bring people out to Huskie Stadium?

Everyone is down attendance-wise. We'll get Saturday games back at some point, the weather will cooperate better than it did this year, and leaving the house to watch sports will come back into fashion.

Good lord...
