    I think last season the OVC and another conference proposed increasing the season to 12 games no matter what. It was voted down by the other FCS leagues for some odd reason. I don't see the issue with playing an extra game. You're already spending millions to have a team, why not play another game?

    I there a projection that Easton Stick will get drafted?
    Coaches Praise Tutsie, sounds like he will have a very promising career

    Easton is much like Carson Wentz, smart, athetic, can run better than Carson, needs some passing work but that is coming along nice

    i think he ends up somewhere, he is IMO one of the top QB rospects in the 2018 class no doubt, he is a winner having only lost 3 games as a starter

    i agree with the extra game. i just see no reason in letting them play it some seasons and not the other. if you think 12 is too many then you shouldnt have 12 games ever.

    Doesn't it have to do with the timing for the playoffs? I don't really know, considering we've only been to the playoffs once in the last 30+ years...BUT THAT CHANGES THIS YEAR!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    I think it has to do with how many Saturdays are in november.

    These schools are "Already In" and have 7 D1 wins or clinched an automatic bid.
    Weber St
    E Washington
    UC Davis
    Kennesaw St
    Maine
    Delaware
    James Madison
    Stony Brook
    Towson
    NC A&T (I personally wouldn't let them in, but they didn't ask me)
    NDSU
    SDSU
    NEC Champion (currently three way tie. This league won't get an at-large bid)
    Jacksonville St
    Colgate
    San Diego
    ETSU
    Wofford
    Nicholls St

    So 19 schools have already sealed their playoff bids. That leaves 5.

    These schools are "In if they win"
    Montana / Montana State winner
    Elon
    North Dakota
    SE MO State
    McNeese State

    Then there's the Furman situation.
    If Furman wins and ETSU loses and Furman can hold their opponent to 17 points or less then Furman will win the SOCON auto bid taking another spot away.

    The MEAC situation
    If Florida A&M loses and NC A&T wins, NC A&T will play in the Celebration Bowl which will free up a playoff spot.

    Schools on the Bubble if they win
    Monmouth
    Eastern KY
    Northern Iowa
    Indiana State
    Western Illinois
    I think you have too much time on your hands. Maybe you should pursue a career in this type of work.

    Maine up 14-10 at the half. Don’t tell me how great the CAA is. Maine has thrown some bad int’s and had some boneheaded penalties. They’re at the top of the CAA and from what I’ve seen I’m not impresseed. Obviously still want them to win though to knock Elon off the bubble.

    Half joking/Half serious question...
    If The Citadel beats #1 Alabama today (currently tied 10-10 at halftime), they would finish the season 5-5...do they deserve a spot in the FCS playoffs?

    It's actually a moot point because Alabama will destroy them in the second half, I'm sure.
