Just way too many mediocre 6-6 BigBoy conference teams available. Look at a school like WKU. 8-4 with a coach like Petrino and still screwed by the BigBoys! This is EXACTLY why new Bowls like Boca, Birmingham and the Bahamas are having to be created. Until scheduling is made equal (EVERYONE plays 6 home and 6 away game AND no FCS wins count will the "Group of 5" schools get a fair shake.

Yes we beat the tar out of Tulane and that is our only win over a bowl eligible team. But all 6 of our losses were to Bowl teams and three of those VERY close! OT to MTSU, by 4 at Rice and by one to Marshall.

By the way, what was your point of using the "quote" when I stated that WKU with the Coach Petrino story angle got screwed by the BigBoys not us. SEVEN (7) 6-6 BigBoy programs jumped WKU at 8-4 and Toledo at 7-7. SEVEN (7)!
