It also doesn't help when an organizations keep tinkering

with the rules. It will be interesting to see the impact NASCAR's latest rules changes have on the ratings and attendance.

WRT the MAC's decision, it felt like it had no choice to gain exposure for the conference since the power conferences control the TV slots for Friday and Saturday. I suspect it is only a matter of time before the Sun Belt announces a similar decision. Even though the MAC and Sun Belt should probably switch to the FCS, the MAC has a dilemma if it does make the switch. First, it would be required to reduce the number of games down to 11. Second, it would have to give up the CCG because a team can't play an 11 schedule, host a CCG, and participate in the FCS Playoff. If the MAC or any conference wants to play a CCG and participate in the FCS, then it would have to play a 10 game schedule.
