So who are you pulling for tonight? South Dakota State or Northern Iowa?

They're doing about as well as the programs did last fall: six out of 20 postponed, although some of them might due to the ice storms that hit the south.

Youngstown State plays at ND State Sunday at 3:30 on ESPN+. It's appropriate that the Penguins will play in North Dakota in February.


We will get by.

It shows the futility of trying to make plans during a pandemic no matter how far into the future. CoVID is still quite a problem in Ohio and most of the midwest. It is mid winter and the weather is harsh. I think only UNI has an indoor stadium.
They will probably have to deal with cancellations and and an 8 week season that will not allow for postponements.
Their season ends in mid April. Perhaps they can have some semblance of a post-season.

YSU has a new staff. Most have some connection to YSU or OSU and a member of a past Tressel staff.

This level has an interest problem even when they play in the fall. Ivy gets one TV game a week on Thursdays and the rest of 1AA gets just about bupkis until the playoff semis. The only real notice that any 1AA team gets is when they knock off a 1A team. (Yes, I know they're FCS and FBS, but they both have a championship playoff of sorts, so those acronyms don't mean much.) The problem now is that b-ball is eating up most of the available network time. Come mid-March, some of the networks will be looking to fill airtime, so a few games will likely show up on the networks.

NCAA has already announced there is no post season. Schools are playing on their own.

But if OHIO went FCS, wed change the landscape of college football and FCS. Read it here multiple times over the years, we could play for a real title and the excitement would be off the charts.
