        No we only deride the SEC schools when they schedule the Div I-AA schools. Hasn’t the SEC dubbed the third weekend in November, “Div I-AA Weekend”? They are actually marketing that I think.

        WKU is not I-AA. They are a quality mid-major.

        People truly do need to make up their minds, when Bama schedules W. Kentucky they get bashed, meanwhile Wisconsin does it & now they’re considered a quality mid-major….what gives? Once again, when any conferences schedule these types of games, not one word but when the SEC does, they get bashed….amazing. Hilltoppers just won the Conf. USA title & they have been proven in the past they’re not fun to play against.

        Wrong, people are critical of Bama not wanting to play home-and-home series – I even mentioned how Bama bought out of the MSU series. Even if the semifinal was a joke, it’d be a much more difficult game in EL. http://www.fbschedules.com/2014/06/alabama-western-kentucky-2016-football-schedule/

        Day, read my post, never bashed Alabama for playing WKU, but I will bash them for playing a Div I-AA opponent. Most Big 10 schools have phased out or will phase out playing Div I-AA opponents. It’s time that the SEC does the same.

        Look at it this way, moving forward …

        Big 10/14 – plays 9 conference games and eventually no Div I-AA schools
        Pac 12 – plays 9 conference games and generally one Div I-AA school
        Big 12 – plays 9 conference games and generally one Div I-AA school
        SEC – plays 8 conference games and one Div I-AA school
        ACC – plays 8 conference games and one Div I-AA school

        Hmmm … just saying.

      Shep, may be this is the reason no one is listing because you don’t have your facts straight. Alabama did not BUY OUT the series, it was mutual, Bama ask to end it & Michigan St agreed. Wrong, how would’ve of it been more difficult in East Lansing? If Bama is 5 touchdowns better then the Spartans then that score would’ve happened anywhere, now you’re are making excuses on how the semifinal was a joke. The same people that want H/N/H games don’t even attend them, it does not matter where the games are played. The best team is going to win.

      Looking at it your way I still see all conferences playing one FCS game, whats the point? Not all conferences are created equal, bashing the SEC for playing smaller schools in November, great but you’re are not bashing the conferences for playing the same smaller schools in September? If does not matter when you play them, you still play & no, I don’t think the SEC is marketing the 3rd weekend in November as Div 1-AA weekend but if that makes you feel better then hey….enjoy.

      Scheduling Western Kentucky is more than a quality team to schedule with what else the Badgers have on their 2018 (BYU and nine conference games). Some of you SEC fans trying to bash this or compare it to Georgia’s recent scheduling of UMass and 1-AA Murray State need to stop drinking your Kool-Aid. Western Kentucky won Conference USA last year and their bowl game, finishing with a 12-2 record. As well, WKU has won over two-thirds of their games in the past four season going 35-17. Mean while, UMass has won no conference title or even appeared in a bowl game in the past four seasons and have totaled a 8-40 record (not so good), and as for 1-AA Murray State in the past four years we have no playoff appearances and a record of 17-29 (Hmmm?????). Not a fan of Barry Alverez and his tactics, but scheduling Western Kentucky is far superior to the recent Georgia added games.

      Indian continues to schedule non league opponents that are a carbon copy of themselves-mediocre to putrid. At least the games should be competitive. Hoosier fans need only wait until October 15th when basketball practice starts and the focus of attention shifts to the sport that in which they are more competitive.

      WKU will be glad to have all these p5 (a little P on purpose!) wins over Indiana for this series.
