Your list should be

NDSU
Montana
Delaware
JSU
JMU
UNI
McNeese
Montana St

If your looking for best teams best support.

Fill in the blank

ULL would ______________________ before they ever let us invite McNeese.

I mean...I admit it would be quite a cool prank to play on their president, pretending we were seriously interested in McNeese.

But they normally have a good team and good support.
Doesn't McNeese usally beat ULL?

Not trying to start an argument but doesn't McNeese take players that cannot get into other schools and have a lot of upsets early in the football seasons when these players are fresh and uninjured?
Have heard that several times. Doubt they would be able to do that so much in the SBC.
Tell me if I am wrong, just what I had heard.

No idea not real up to date on the program.
The team McNeese had last year would have been competitive in the SB.

Going off memory here, so please forgive the holes in the story.

They used to have a program for academically ineligible/character risks where basically they weren't on the team (no scholarship), but got assistance from the athletic department to get their heads on straight/get grades worked out/heal up.

After that year, if they were up to snuff, they were placed on the team. SO they do have a feeder system where they take lots of players that don't work out at other schools.

Sounds similar to a program that Marshall has for people with learning disabilities to help them and to qualify and play football. That's one reason a lot of MU posters say that they wouldn't join the AAC if ever asked to join because they would have to drop their program.

I love the program at the FCS level, as most players in FCS don't make it to the NFL. Ergo, they kinda have to get an education while playing football.

FBS? It's more of a business, where even though still very few players make the NFL, players are more focused on getting to the NFL. I think in that environment, it can be too easily abused to the detriment to the player.
