So, NDSU, top dog in FCS, have not lost in years, etc.
They have only been in FCS (I-AA) since 2004. So, not only are they going for a 4-peat, they have transitioned from D-II only 10 years ago.
I took a snap shot of their roster and here it is:

So, I looked up some info regarding the media's lambasting of the SEC's week 2 OOC schedule and compared the leagues two largest critics.
Scheduling is a difficult task; often done years in advance and a of agendas need to be met. However, there are clear patterns of trying and not trying.

| SEC Rant|| Playoff Preview (example from the past): How would you rank 2001 scenerio? - Ghostfacedistiller on 9/2/14 at 12:15 pm|
I know this may be confusing idea, but IMO the 2001 season represents the most realistic worst case scenario for the SEC in the coming format--true worst case is having an undefeated team left out but that's not happening.
You had two highly ranked teams (UF, UT) but neither are conference champs...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Miles Austin or Andrew Hawkins? - Ghostfacedistiller on 8/28/14 at 9:53 am|
Adding depth and weak at WR (obviously).
Who has the better upside? Gordon is still listed as a starter with Hawkins as his backup while Miles is the other starter, but Hawkins seems to be owned by more people.
| SEC Rant|| On what basis does anyone think A&M has a chance tomorrow? - Ghostfacedistiller on 8/27/14 at 9:31 am|
IMO, the only explanations are as follows:
1. You're an A&M fan and strongly believe in the team, players, and program, kind of like parents believe in their kids and don't pay attention to the outside. Maybe you work with them, grew up with someone on the team, know them from town or church.

They're not the only ones though.
