Good Riddance (P5 breakaway celebration thread)
« on: August 08, 2014, 08:14:16 PM »


Finally, we can get rid of these trash non P5 schools.

Rice? SJSU? Miami of Ohio?

These schools don't even lift, let alone deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as tOSU/TX/OU/Bama/USC/KSU/FL/Mich etc etc.

KSU- "Yeah, tough break kid, keep your head up."

Boise St- "So this is it huh, you go your way, we go ours"

KSU- "Don't think of it that way....(Stretch Hummer Limo with BIG12 Logo on the side Pulls up outside and honks 5 times)

OU- "Hey shithead lets go, Bruno says he can get us to Vegas in 5 hours"

I honesty dont know the difference between most FCS and non P5 FBS teams.

Eastern Michigan is FBS but Northern Dakota State is FCS?

Life will be so much easier without either of these trash schools riding out coattails.

5 hours from Denver to Vegas? Very impressive. I'm guessing that 5 hours is a ride to Aspen to pick a couple more elites (UCLA & ASU) then hopping on a G5 to Vegas?

I'm curious on your view as a Texas St fan.  Would you rather be FBS in the Sun Belt hoping for a New Orleans Bowl birth or would you rather be in the FCS playoff?  I would think as a fan I would rather be in the playoffs.  I've never understood why schools would want to make the jump to the FBS.  Is the money that much better?  What's the appeal?  I know there is an appeal otherwise schools wouldn't be making the jump.  Do you think Texas St could be the next Boise or USF?  I'm honestly curious.  Since I moved to Tulsa I've met a lot of Tulsa fans and enjoy following them, but I've noticed to 98% it's just a hobby with no real enthusiasm for something more.

Well, the revenues are bigger based on tv agreements alone, but expenses go up so financially it's kind of a wash. Honestly in our case it's more about perception. We've always been regarded as a party school afterthought that Texas dropouts go to. There has been a considerable amount of mismanagement of Texas State's potential as a university and a football program since arguably the mid 1980's (maybe earlier) and I think there's a realization that we need to stop being small time. Since the mid-2000's the university has attempted to shed that image and is trying to stand on its own two feet and going into FBS was considered part of that initiative. We won't ever be Texas or A&M--or Tech unless we get super lucky--but the hope was to leverage the two metro areas and fertile recruiting grounds (i.e. keep 3-star kids who wanted to stay in state rather than go to KU/ISU/KSU/middling P12 and Big 10 schools) to build a strong program and eventually become another mid-major power and bring back some of the lazy Texas fan/Texas State alum types who never took us seriously in the 1990's because we languished in FCS.

In terms of what I'd rather do...the 2005 playoff run to the semifinals was fun as hell and people went nuts. But having covered the program from up close during the final FCS years, there's a certain ceiling you hit as a program (15,000-18,000 attendance at most, maybe 2-3 playoff games on ESPN3 if you're lucky, etc.) that limits your opportunities to spotlight yourself. The Sun Belt tv deal is much better than what we ever had in the Southland--I can watch away games on ESPN3, and occasionally the ESPN2 or ESPNNews. In the Southland we were lucky to get any games on regional tv. So as things stood when we made the jump to FBS, I preferred the possibility of us eventually getting our crap together and making it to the big stage, however remote it was. As for whether we could be Boise or USF, we could be if we had the right leadership (i.e. UTSA's athletic director) and we got very lucky. But our administration is still led by many of the same people who were dragged kicking and screaming out of FCS by the student body, so that doesn't seem likely anytime soon. Of course, it's even less likely now that we're going to essentially be back in the equivalent of FCS after the P5 conferences basically wall off the G5 schools in their own ghetto (sysbait).

Just printed out 42's post and showed it to a super hungover Texas......he laughed, crumpled the paper up in a ball and made a bankshot into the trash can across the room.

With bloodshot eyes he glances over to OU and says

"Can Texas State do that?"

You guys think Cheyenne would schedule a non con game with us every year, so that the economy of the State of Kansas would get an extra game day boost every year?  The State benefits, the Universities benefit, the student athletes benefit from short travel.

Solves quite a few problems.

Guys, with the shake up coming,  I am super concerned about the limitations put on us by the BOR tying us to KU.  I mean, we need to have a discussion about splitting up just in case, IMO.

Not a chance, Boise State definitely drinks craft brews (mostly breakfast stouts and expresso porters)
