We will lose every recruiting battel to the southern teams! why? because our facilities SUCK!

Playing two FBS is an option, however I would prefer that we play a FBS game in August followed by a bye week and the 2'nd FBS game the last game of the year, preceeding with a bye week.

We do not draw large crowds for games in August and the last week of November so they would be good dates to schedule away games.

I would be in favor of a 2'nd game if the money we would received, $400K, was invested into McGirk every year. With nicer amenities and another parking area on the south side of the stadium we would see larger attendance figures.
