SCHOOLS DEPEND ON BIG PAYDAYS: Columnist Kevin Blackistone said the move not to schedule FCS teams is "all about the money, and this is just another case ... of the big boys keeping all the cheese to themselves." Blackistone: "First thing I thought about was the paycheck that big schools aren’t going to cut to the little schools and those little schools ... look forward to getting that check.” Denver Post columnist Woody Paige: “I like the fact that big-time teams will allow those smaller schools to come in and have the experience of playing in the Big House. ... I think that it makes sense and it’s a big payday for the schools that need it.” ESPN's Bomani Jones said, “Nothing is going to be that much different because they may not go to the FCS, there’s still the Sun Belt and all those other lower-level FBS conferences to get cupcakes from” (“Around The Horn,” ESPN, 2/13).
