Why not one more of many crazy ideas. 

P5 football in the Fall
G5 football in the spring

Financially would this benefit or be a complete disaster for G5

Pretty sure a lot of G5 programs can’t survive without playing money games @P5 schools. Where would we be financially without the Bama & State games from last season?

Is it just me, or is there only like 5-6 of us posting on here anymore? Other than not giving a shit anymore, where's everybody gone to?

There's just not much to talk about. Football is over. Basketball is terrible. Baseball hasn't started. Recruiting is meh.

With UCONN leaving the AAC, seems like the ACC would be pursuing to take Boise for football only.

Okay dreamers, this is where you start fantasying if the AAC decides to go to 14 football members.

I’m pretty sure ESPN owns most of the non-New Years 6 bowls.
I’m positive ESPN doesn’t give a rats ass about the attendance at those games. They exist so they can be televised. The schools participating in those games are on the hook for a minimum amount of tickets. Between that and sponsorships, the expenses of those bowls are covered. As long as they aren’t losing money, then it could be played in an empty stadium and it wouldn’t affect ESPN one bit.

Imagine if I told you this 15 years ago:
Mississippi State hires a new coach. In 2 years, that coach leads them to back-to-back bowl games, beats Ole Miss twice, Southern Miss once and signs 2 consecutive Top 25 classes and is then fired.

The landscape of football expectations in Starkville has shifted dramatically. I wish our administrators would take notes.

Southern Miss Signing Day

A very average CUSA program signing a very average CUSA level class.
Nothing more.
Nothing less.

95-21 win by Houston in 1988

That would have been '89.
'87 & '88 were the years SMU was prohibited from fielding a team.

Coach O won’t beat Saban

Probably not because that game is in Tuscaloosa, but Bama's defense looks very un-Bama like this year. If that game were in Baton Rouge, I'd take the Tigers.

I saw we got new lockers, but haven't seen anything about the turf install.
Has it started? Completed? TTT'ed?

Tulane is legit and could end up winning the AAC if they beat Memphis in two weeks

Their schedule is brutal. They still have the navigate a bunch of tough road games and UCF at home:

That's pretty surprising. I would have expected to be about a -2.5 line.

its the only champion ship we have to play (just like most teams) at this point in college football.

But this is nothing new. It's always been this way. Even before the playoff or before the BCS, there have always only been 15-20 programs capable of winning the NC.

Fun fact, there hasn't been a 1st time National Champion since 1996 Florida. That's nearly a quarter of a century of the same handful of programs winning the NC over and over.

With the exception of a half dozen or so "marquee" games each week, there are seats available to almost every game i see on TV.
All access to virtually all games is killing attendance. You could offer FREE beer and not fill it up.

I don't disagree with any of that. But I also dont see other schools publicly setting unattainable attendance goals at the start of the season. There was absolutely ZERO evidence that this team with this home schedule would ever come remotely close to accomplishing the "30K 5 times", so now it just looks even worse than had we not promoted such an unattainable goal.
