the best way to win a NT in d1 at a non bcs school is to play in a 11 sim conference, to recruit deep, full teams of near interchangeable 575 players with potential to make 750, go 16-0 in your conference and make the nt every season, fcp, run up tempo, and take your chances against the lower IQ, shallower rostered 800 players that d1 BCS teams have.
won't work that well, but that is your best shot. Any low end conference that has two good coaches in it instead of one, your chances are near cut in half. Now if the CUSA group of stud coaches fill their conference, they can do it like a bcs conference, sure, but that is not the equation that the average 'JOe' playing the game gets to use, those CUSA coaches are simply making themselves a BCS conference, which I have no doubt they can do.
mason - you know I was pulling your chain with the rewards pt thing, my point was if you recall, that you aren't even making up good reasons why recruit generation is not the culprit for d1's middle and low end demise, I think my line was 'here, try this one' or something along those 'lines'. I am pretty certain indeed recruit generation is the culprit, and honestly, I am pretty sure seble knows this is true too. If you let me flip sides onto your side yet again, I might even tell you why the current recruit generation is a good thing - the argument you should be making, why I think seble has no intention of changing - how is that for a teaser??????
