With that, attendance has improved the last couple of years. Now I think it is within a couple of hundred people per game than peak attendance years.

The real challenge will be when we lose for a few years. We'll see how attendance does then.


Yep. Idaho was pretty good their first few years in I-A, but we all know how that turned out. I don't expect App to fail at an Idaho level, obviously, but declining into stagnant mediocrity is a legitimate concern.

Has Montana declined to stagnant mediocrity? Or no? :coffee:

In one year, they could be hosting 3 playoff games and playing for a chipper. :coffee:

Well, we did blow you out the last time we played before you moved up, so you've got that in common with Idaho. :lol:

Just saying - we wouldn't be immune to mediocrity if we stayed FCS.

We'll probably go through periods of mediocrity. We would have if we were FCS. It's just the life of a program. :nod:
