One last thought in this long and interesting thread.

North Dakota State just won the FCS championship. Forget FBS. NDS would assassinate any Ivy school, as would any of the top 20 FCS teams. This is just not the type of football we play or should want to play.
Hard hitting, competent, well coached games against fairly equal teams should be our goal. The rest is merely a recruiting competition without academics as a criterion.

As far as fan popularity, it is a significant part of those schools' culture and social life; not so at ours. This has been the case since the '60s. An undefeated season will still turn up the attendance, but forget Rose Bowl numbers.
