Ah, Ohio State vs. Florida A&M. A matchup which would be much more intriguing as a battle of the bands than a battle of the football teams.   Unfortunately, the FAMU band did not make the trip.

I will say that it is sad that Ohio State is playing an FCS team and I hope they don't move up in the polls this week because of it.

Pretty sure it was a jab at the huge fark up they refs made vs Wisconsin giving asu the win.

And waiting for people to crow about how ESPN went to an Div II school, see they're relevant! When its only because its shiat scrub weekend in CFB.

No cable for me, but I'm curious. Does Gameday still do the celebrity pick at the end w/ Corso? If so, who are they getting for the pick?

Smart money says Chuck Klosterman (NDSU alum). But what if Phil Jackson (ND native) agreed to it?

You realize that NDSU is a Div I school?  Div II is where they came from.   Div I is FBS + FCS.   

Not only that but NDSU is a repeat National Championship team, beat the last 4 FBS schools they have played, have a 7-2 record against FBS teams, and would be ranked #54 if they were in the FBS....better than over half of the current FBS teams.   How is that for 'not relevant'?   Las Vegas is putting odds up that 'Bama would beat NDSU today by 32 1/2 points if they played....and has 'Bama beating Colorado by 39 points.

Aar1012: /No FBS team should move up in a poll after playing an FCS team


What happens when 90% of the teams are playing FCS teams?  This week's schedule sucks.  There is a reason GameDay is in Fargo.  Though, I wish they would visit the Montana-Montana State game one of these days....

Since FCS football is so awesome, what channel is this game on?  I can't find it on the schedule.

This week's slate of games is lame and they STILL aren't being televised.

of course it was, but the point is it is a Pac-12 matchup.  that joke would make sense with the ASU / ND matchup in a few weeks or any other non-Pac12 opponent.


steamingpile: aiting for people to crow about how ESPN went to an Div II school, see they're relevant! When its only because its shiat scrub weekend in CFB.


i didn't read the story, but locally (Phoenix) there was an article that said ESPN going to NDSU is a snub to the Pac 12, as arguably Stanford / ASU is the best matchup. and on the radio i half-heard someone talking about, saying hte Pac-12 networks are in bed with Dish Network, not DirecTV, and somehow (I GUESS?) DirectTV and ESPN are in cahoots?

it sounded  weird but yeah, short version:  Pac 12 is butthurt.

Perhaps he is just upset that GameDay passed over his favorite school (or runner up school) and feels it sullies GameDay's rep by going to anything outside the FBS?  I mean, the only football worth watching is in the FBS...or high school football if you are in Texas, right?   GameDay is only supposed to cover REAL college football which means only going to FBS schools so I have a feeling another comment he will make will be that GameDay has 'jumped the shark".  Anyone willing to take that bet?
