Pitt recently added Gardner-Webb, a FCS team, to its 2012 schedule. To put the addition of this team in perspective note that Real Time RPI gave Gardner-Webb, 4-7, a ranking of 231, and the Dukes, 9-2, had a ranking of 163 by Real Time RPI at the end of the season.

Gardner Webb???? I'd be upset if the Dukes scheduled a team ranked that low just as I was when we took on Valpo. I understand that the Valpo game was a trade off for the basketball schedule.

No excuse for Pitt to go that far down the RPI list. They'd sell more seats if they scheduled the Dukes.

We all have to remember one thing...

As a "full scholarship" program, Gardner Webb is a "counter" for BCS Bowl consideration. At this point, Duquesne is not.

"The NCAA allows one victory per season over a Division I FCS (formerly I-AA) team to count toward an FBS team's bowl eligibility, so long as the FCS team has supplied financial aid for football averaging out to at least 56.7 full scholarships (90% of the limit of 63 allowed to FCS schools) over 'a rolling two-year period' that can include the current season."

Thanks for the information Coach L. I don't think that the Dukes will ever reach that limit even though they'd nock the snot out of Gardner Webb according to the RPI and Sagarin.

Another clue that the NCAA's can be a bit confusing as to what they do and how they do it!
