This article explains why we are going to have to create another tier for College Football. Let’s not pretend that North Texas is ever going to be as good as Bama. The discrepancy in budgets alone would never allow it. The fair thing to do for institutions with limited budgets would be to drop them down in the the FBS and let them compete. I don’t think that anyone in FBS complains about the excitement surrounding their team and not everyone even gets the support from their fan base that an SEC teams. App State seems to do alright for themselves and we would stop schools from dumping money into programs that will never be more than doormats. The only way schools move up now is for a rich alum (see Phil Knight and T. Boone Pickens) to fund the program out of their own coffers. Which means that for every Oklahoma State and Oregon there are programs bleeding their school’s account dry. Let’s be fair to everyone and fix college football before it collapses like the housing market.
