  1. Re: Just for fun: where should the D2 championship game be, and why?

    My criteria include:

    *Fairly nice stadium with bells and whistles but only moderate capacity (20-25K range roughly)
    *Located in or near major market with a lot of airline connections
    *Preferably...
  2. Re: KC hotel suggestions?

    I've only been to the KC area a couple times...but you have to get some of the famed KC beef brisket barbecue.

    Because the Chiefs have a home game the same night, I'm thinking the further to the...

    Re: Cheyney Dropping Football

    Hah! If it was up to me, the non-SSHE schools (Gannon, Mercyhurst, and Seton Hill) wouldn't be in the PSAC, but if the league leaders are going to let them in, I see no problem with letting...

    Re: Cheyney Dropping Football

    Sad to hear this, but I can't say this is surprising. Cheyney's survival as a university is tenuous, and funding a football team was an extra cost the school really couldn't afford.

    Re: Who plays who?

    In addition to what was already said, I think a valid argument can be made that while both West Florida and Harding both have made impressive runs to the national semifinals, Harding has beaten a...
  7. Re: Heads up for the national semifinal teams (12/16 title game in KC)

    My 2 cents - having expensive flight options is better than having no flight options. I still think having the national championship game at a nice, MLS stadium in a relatively large market like...
  8. Heads up for the national semifinal teams (12/16 title game in KC)

    A heads up for the fans of the four national semifinal teams (IUP, Texas A&M-Commerce, Harding, and West Florida) - the Kansas City Chiefs have a home game (against the San Diego Chargers of Los...

    Re: Playoff upsets

    The high number of close games in the D2 playoffs this year really speaks to the quality of competition among the better teams in D2 IMO.

    Re: Who plays who?

    Harding beat a more impressive set of playoff opponents than West Florida IMO. I think the semifinal seeds will be:

    1) Indiana (PA)
    2) Texas A&M-Commerce
    3) Harding
    4) West Florida

    Pairing...

    Re: Round 1 Playoff Travel Distances

    The airplane sizes most airports can accommodate is based on runway length. In most cases smaller commercial airports don't have the passenger demand to warrant larger jet service, but they do have...

    Re: Playoff upsets

    The high number of upsets shows how most D2 conferences' lack of non-conference games is a problem when it comes to evaluating, ranking, and seeding teams in the D2 playoffs. It is hard to get a...

    The D3 playoffs are essentially regionalized.

    Re: Round 1 Playoff Travel Distances

    One of the issues travel-wise this year is the CIAA moved from SR1 to SR2, and the GMAC into SR1. The CIAA teams that made the playoffs, Virginia State and especially Bowie State, are much closer to...

    Re: ODU plays at Ivy League Penn this year

    DI-A/FBS teams' games against non-scholarship DI-AA/FCS teams don't count for bowl eligibility. Penn was scheduled to play DI-AA/FCS Jacksonville (who they played on the road in 2014) on 9/16, but...
