    What is bonkers to all of us is your swing from a years long defense of the awful teams Red put out (papered over by Swayman for one year) to indicting Barr based upon a half season.

    It's like you paved over your neighbor's flower garden, and now you are *****ing that the sunflowers can't...

    I think there's more national attention for the NCAA hockey tournament than there is for the FCS football playoffs....

    That's my point. Maine is not a massive athletic department like Michigan that can play all the big sports and be competitive. So Maine needs to decide, do we put all of our eggs in one basket and pick a sport to be nationally competitive in and raise the institutional profile? Or do we offer a wide...

    My theory is that they are mutually exclusive. Maine can have a nationally competitive hockey program that goes toe to toe with BC, Notre Dame, Michigan, etc. or a sort of competitive JV level football team that goes toe to toe with the teams that are slightly worse than North Dakota State and South...

    So football loses a ton of money regardless of how many FBS games it plays.

    Football has also made the NCAA tournament six times this millenium (fewer than hockey!). Football has won two playoff games in the last ten years.

    This is not some national power team that is getting...

    That's fine for you. I swore I'd never give another cent until Maine reinstated men's soccer....

    Because if you are giving up some of your odds to play for a national title in order to make money, you aren't a serious athletic program. I disagree that Maine is a "factor" in FCS- one run to the semifinals (which resulted in an *** kicking), and a few one and dones in the playoffs aren't...

    Because if Maine plays two FBS games and loses them, and then goes 5-3 in the CAA, Maine will have a 6-3 FCS record. 6 wins is historically not enough for playoff consideration.

    If Maine instead goes 2-1 in the nonconference, and then goes 5-3 in the CAA, Maine will have a 7-3 FCS record,...

    Football team's non-conference schedule next year is @ New Mexico, @ BC, home to Colgate. Hope they can get one win, and then go 6-2 against the CAA, because otherwise no playoffs....
