Here’s a thought for those of you who.......

want to have year round football:

As we all know, college football is divided into two major subdivision. The FBS and the FCS.
Let FBS teams start play the first of September and play through to a championship game around the first of January just as they do now.

Let FCS teams start playing around February 1st and play through to a championship game around June 1st.

Under this scenario, FBS teams could no longer schedule cupcake FCS teams. They would have to play 12 other FBS teams only which would provide for bigger and more meaningful games. It would also stop teams from qualifying for a bowl much like the coots did by beating 3 powerhouses like Coastal, Akron and College of Charleston. The bowl system would not be affected because FCS teams don’t play in bowls.

This would leave us without college football for the month of January and from June 1 to September 1.

I know this is far fetched and would never happen. But it’s an idea.

Pretty interesting idea '72. I like it at first glance. I mean, there would probably be more following (i.e. $) for the FCS under that plan. The income stream impact would be the first obstacle to look at. Without pay outs from FBS scheduling, could FCS schools recoup with new market interest from a market share that's not currently available? Very novel discussion topic...

Let each FBS conference adopt a FBS conference. At the end of the fiscal year share some or your revenue with your adopted conference. No difference between that and a school having to fork over a couple of hundred thousand to get a cupcake to play. Bottom line would probably stay about the same.

Also, since only FCS teams would be playing in the spring, all TV revenue from spring games would go to the FCS. I think ESPN would love to broadcast spring football. They cover our spring games now because people are craving some type of football at that time of year.

I like it. coots could play one of the South Carolina FCS teams in January so we’d have a clear cut #2 team in South Carolina. It’d also give the coots a chance to play in a meaningful bowl game.

great idea and if you cant win a championship in 50 years you're excluded from having a team for a while (like the coots would be). Sort of like a term limits
