Monday--December 10th, 2012

CBS Sports has UMass among it's "Dreadful Dozen", the college football teams that struggled the most in 2012.

The article mentions Texas State and Texas San Antonio. Texas State played a good FCS team in Stephen F. Austin, but also padded their schedule with New Mexico State (1-11) and Idaho (1-11). They also beat fellow newbie Texas San-Antonio. The Bobcats did have a nice win at Houston.

Texas San-Antonio Road Runners went 8-4, but played two transitional FBS teams (South Alabama and Texas State), two FCS teams (Georgia State and McNeese State) as well as the two 1-11 teams listed above and somebody named Northwest Oklahoma State (DII, I think). That's a far cry from the seven bowl teams the Minutemen played.

College football is becoming a magnet for advertising dollars.
