They want to play other FBS programs that are lower than them on the ladder, so they can win and say they did it with a FBS schedule.
    I think everyone pretty much agrees that they won't leave the NCAA. What they want is to stay in the NCAA while not allowing the full membership to vote on legislation that affects them. Much like homeowners don't like it that renters are able to vote for property taxes.

    I agree..... They find themselves in a bind, though, of wanting separation, but needing us - actually, you made a good analogy.
