I would not be surprised to see A&T and Monmouth both regularly at the top in a few years

Do you consider NC A & T as being a subpar program ? That‘s wrong.
Yes I consider Hampton, A&T and Monmouth as inferior programs. A&T and Monmouth have both been great in their leagues recently but that’s it. Remember even when A&T was having an unbelievable season they got in the playoffs and were smacked by a short handed UR team.

Haven't heard anything about Howard...are they out now? They were being talked about alongside A&T and are a natural rival for Hampton, but that would make 15 football schools. A&T says CAA Football is going to North and South divisions, so an even 14 seems more logical.

It doesn't solve the previous big problem with divisions in that the logical way to do it splits UD and Nova, and they're really against that.

Only time will prove you wrong.

Can't even remember how many times I/my family drove past MSM on my way to UR/home from UR. We drove through campus several times, it's very pretty.

US 15 is a corridor of colleges. MSM, Gettysburg, Bucknell, Susquehannah, Lycoming, Mansfield State, all before reaching the NYS line at Painted Post.

Jim Phelan,the humble long time,bow-tied basketball coach on the Mount,gave the little Catholic school its national exposure with 49 year tenure and 830 wins.

He was admired by a lot of top tier coaches. I’m remember Gary Williams talking about how much respect
he had for him.

With Pac10 members USC and UCLA likely headed to B10 in 2024,there could be some out west shift from FCS to BCS by the likes of the NDSU /SDSU/Montana State

Are conferences as necessary as they used to be? Other than for scheduling games, I’m beginning to wonder.
Especially in the P-5 , teams are playing a lot of games outside of their conferences, but not necessarily for a win.

Ya I don’t like adding Campbell. We’ve added 3 big south teams recently and a couple Meac. We need to leave the CAA for the SoCon before it becomes the big south or meac.
