A lot of GS and App fans knew all the way back to 2014 that CUSA's expansion strategy was dumb. And that they could both compete right away if the weird seasons they had in 2013 were just hiccups.

App and GS brought a culture of winning that has been in place for decades. Both programs expect, if not demand, to win. Those are programs you want to add to your conference. Eyeballs in Boca Raton means nothing.

That was part of the flawed logic, location equaled market share in their assumptions, unfortunately they’re like Michael Bolton and put the decimal in the wrong place.

Imagine the MAC looking down of NDSU, that’s a much closer comparison.

I agree yall weren't. People knew about yall because of Michigan, but GS and GSU? Never heard of them or their 6 nattys until reading this board. People in the east would probably say the same about us.

GS before NDSU was the most successful FCS team in the history of the division and were coming off the UF win lol do you live under a rock? 03-lmfao

Not a lot, most geniuses on our board wanted nothing to do with the Belt and talked about CUSA like it was the ACC.

They kicked our ars your ars and everybody's ars to earn it and they entered the league yesterday. Go pound sand or something just stop with the incessant whining.

The exposure snowball began when Troy beat LSU in 2018. Then App kept the ball rolling along with Louisiana in 2019. And in 2020 the rest of the hill broke lose in Week 1 and the avalanche came.

In all honesty, we really have C-USA and the MWC to thank. They both abandoned ESPN leaving open the availability of weekend games on main ESPN networks. Coastal had a great season, sure. But they still lost to Liberty after complaining about not getting a better bowl slot. At least when App complained they backed it up.

Would you trade FAU for Texas State? I'm not sure how much playing in a particular market helps with recruiting but most of the East schools recruit South Florida, not Texas.
