Welcome to the FCS Football Talk podcast.
On this episode, Sam answers 26 questions from FCS fans on Twitter:
How long before St. Thomas moves to a scholarship football conference? Which one is most likely to jump in and scoop them up? Can they have success at a scholarship level like they did jumping into PFL?
How is it possible to make a champion and get an auto-bid when some teams in the same league go years without playing one another?
Best transfer class brought in?
Non mvc team who could win natty they won’t but curious
Will off-field issues at Montana State derail the quest for a title?
If it’s the Football Championship Subdivision, shouldn’t a team compete for/in that championship race to be ranked within the division? Disclaimer: I like Ivy football and hope to attend Harvard v Yale this season.
Why can’t the BigSky move to FBS? Wac/ Asun isn’t a better conference. Build for the future
After losing their two best LineBackers, one to graduation and one to Georgia Tech, can the Vandals defense meet the high expectations this season?
Why do I keep moving myself to states without FCS teams?
How do you see the MVFC shaking out this fall?
Who is your surprise team to make a run to the quarters or semis this year?
Which Big Sky team with a new head coach is in better shape? Weber or Sac State?
Which non-D1 teams do you see most likely making the jump to FCS in the near future?
Why do FCS programs have better mascots and helmet logos than FBS?
Who’s the best bet to become the next Cooper Kupp or David Johnson to come out of the FCS?
Hey Sam, besides the champs, who’s the other top dog in the MVFC this year? What’s the percent chance that it’s UNI?
Which is your favorite FCS conference and why is it the Big Sky?
What teams would you like to see move down? I realize this is unlikely but it could be a fun discussion. Outside of the obvious (SHSU, App, JMU, and GSU returning) I think there’s some schools playing bad football with poor fan support that could get a boost by moving down
It looks like the WAC-ASUN alliance is here to stay despite their earlier intentions. It’s hard to believe the OVC-Big South alliance will stick beyond this year with the OVC adding WIU. What do you see happening with the 4 remaining Big South teams?
Do we see a conference with 7 members get into the playoffs in the next few years? Or is it 6, whichever the record would be.
Does Montana State have the toughest schedule in the history of college football?
How many FCS schools will move to the FBS due to pressure of their better athletes consistently leaving for FBS programs due to the transfer portal?
Who’s the next FCS head coach to leave for an FBS assistant coach position?
What conference will be the strongest in the FCS this year
Do you think Dakota and Montana schools would be at a similar disadvantage playing September games in SC or AL as SoCon/Southland teams are playing MT or SD in Nov/Dec? Do you think that’s why they typically won’t schedule home/home games with southern schools?
The question on the nation’s mind is singular: are the Hens back?
