What do you guys think of schools playing weak teams near the end or around halfway through the football seasson?
For instance this year clemson is playing Coastal Carionlina on october 31. Minnesota playing south Dakota state om November 14. i think Flordia did it last year when they played western carilolina in there second to the last game of the regular seasson.

So you think that Playing FCS teams so late in the seasson hurt alot more in the BCS rankings then a win over a fCS team in the begaining of the seasson.(a FSC team played in september)

It depends on the school. Florida for example, knew they likely had an sEC championship game coming up to boost their numbers. For others, it's just about getting a game into an available slot. I think thus far it's been a non-factor but could one day keep a team at #3 from getting a quality win to move up to #2. Then again, chances are the #2 and #1 teams would have championship games to play still, sans USC or Ohio St.
