They win, and have an established fan base…AND:

Dont fund thier program with gurantee games.

Your telling me that Tulsa is a winning and established program….?  I would bet their home attendance is on par with every other MAC and Conference USA teams.

How do they fund their program?

24k per game doesn't blow my hair back…doesn't troy and mtsu both average about that?  And how much is $2.43 compared to SunBelt schools?

Well how come NO SunBelt schools play a schedule like that is my question.  I dont think Tulsa's program attendance and fund raising wise differ greatly.  You are telling me that when FAU averages 24k attendance and can raise $2.4 million dollars for the entire sports department we can stop playing OOC games like Texas?

Do you really want a schedule like Tulsa's? So what if we played that schedule and won all those games! There are plenty of Div 3 schools that are undefeated that we never hear about. What the diff between Tulsa and the Div 3 schools!?! Not much…they both play the same schools. Besides, had we actually beat Texas and MSU we would have recieved a ton of recognition and thus raise more money. I think our schedule is weak this year. It is certainly not as tough as last year.

Weak?  Texas, Michigan St., and Minnesota are all ranked.  Hawaii had a schedule like Tulsa's last year….they went to a BCS bowl and received plenty of money.
