Oh my god, 20+ years of coming on to these boards and long gaps of absence in between and we're still hearing 49-48.

Re: Is FCS (Beside NDSU) Really This Bad?

Looks like Minny beat a 6-5 Alabama in a 2004 bowl game... a year after Bama went 4-9 while losing to Hawaii, Northern Illinois... so who didn't beat Alabama then? So it's kinda like Delaware going into Montana and beating a 10-1 Montana team whose only loss was to Oregon (35-30). :lol: Oh my god, ...

Btw, I've already turned this off, I just couldn't bear it anymore. We've never had two worse candidates for President than who we have now. Could've picked two people off the street at random and we'd likely be better off.

FCS football is another thing entirely. Outside of NDSU and maybe Montana, no one really makes any money on it.

As for the nominee, I'm fine with Barrett. She's intelligent and has some verve, so I like that in my SCOTUS justices. A little on the young side, but I understand why they'd do that as well.
