Scenario B - FBS and FCS merge, we get our playoff, but minus the storied programs.
Oh yes, the proverbial bone the NCAA threw the little guys: No longer I-A and I-AA it's the easy to remember FBS and FCS.
At the time that the non I-A schools were seeking change, one of the options was Scenario B: merge I-A and I-AA.
I was for this if indeed there was a playoff system. It makes no sense that the Division 1 NCAA Football champion ends up being UMass, Georgia Southern, App St when Ohio St. is playing Florida in a bowl game for #1.
Us fans of FCS schools have our pride in our brand of football. Some will go on about how good their program is compared to FBS football. Oh yeah, prove it. We all should prove it by playing on the same level. It's just a matter of finding a way to get the schools opportunities to make the playoffs when they are successful...like basketball has to make sure the mid-majors get in.
