The AI made us noncompetitive against several of those schools.

We got games against Northwestern, Hawaii and Cornell on the books after the I-AA move. The games were not close.

With the AI and without the enhanced financial aid packages that we enjoy today, we would have lost tons of relevance (and therefore attendance) in the 1980s even if we had stayed at FBS. I believe that our best case scenario would have been have been Army in their C-USA years.
