Isn't there a playoff between - UMass, Dirty, Akron, and Utep?
I would totally watch this tourney before probably 95% of all bowl games. But as someone who follows Northwestern football rather closely, I’d like to nominate them as the P5 representation.

Vic, please don’t even think about making a joke here. It took Wilder over a decade of blood, sweat, and tears to turn ODU into the worst team in division one football. It takes a ton of effort to get your doors blown off by UAB, who apparently, unbeknownst to most of us, DOES indeed field an american football team.

No matter what, at the end of the day, he’ll always have that Popeyes Fried Chicken Sandwich Bowl victory on his resume. That can never be taken away.
Well, technically it could be vacated.

Well the vitriol is in full bloom on the FODU board. Mike was characterized in the following way by one poster "Rhoades is trash" and "he took a trash program to a mediocre program." No understanding of lost recruiting classes and player attrition when there's a coaching change.
how are we mediocre? We are a top 50 team and last week we were ranked in the top 20 of all DI teams in America. Where has ODU basketball been over the last decade?
