In case you missed it, starting last season, the NCAA began phasing out the classification names "1-A" - where Michigan, Florida, USC and the like reside - and "1-AA" - which includes teams like Appalachian State, Furman, Montana and their ilk who have that 16-team playoff at the end of their season which nobody watches. Now, the Division Formerly Known As 1-A is supposed to be called the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) while 1-AA is to be referred to the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
FCS, FBS? Sounds like a bunch of BS and all I have to say is WTF?
Can somebody please explain what was so terribly wrong with the simple and longstanding 1-A and 1-AA classifications? Is it an attempt to be "PC" when referring to schools with, shall we say, "smaller stadiums" if you know what I mean? Like "those schools" such as Youngstown State and "their kind" were offended by the second "A" so the NCAA threw the word "Championship" in the division classification name to appease these
Seriously, this renaming idea is so unnecessary and unsupported by the fans, I almost thought Jim Delaney must have come up with it. And we here at the MZone aren't going to stand for it.
As such, we're calling for a boycott of the new FCS and FBS names. We are only going to refer to team divisions by their OG classifications of 1-AA and 1-A on this site and we urge other bloggers across America to do the same.
Fight the Power! Stop the NCAA PC police!
