That huge corner turning win over Tulsa led us running head first into a brick wall. We lost to an alright FIU team and a terrible Cincy team. It took overtime to beat ECU and we scored fewer points than a FCS team.
When you say it took overtime to beat ECU and we scored fewer points than an FCS team, I assume you're talking about ECU's loss to an FCS team? That FCS team is defending national champion James Madison, who would be double digit favorites over Tulane. I'd lay the points, too. Their coach will likely get P5 offers. They also hosted ESPN College Gameday for the second time in two seasons this year.
Folks need to learn a bit more about FCS programs. The top 5 would have very very good records playing the bottom half of FBS. Heck, North Dakota State beat a top 20 Iowa team a year or two ago. Michigan, LSU, Arizona and many other traditionally strong programs have lost to FCS teams in the past 10 years or so. And the FCS playoffs are way more legit than the FBS playoff.
