No student or anyone under 50 cares about them, and the only reason to play them would be nostalgia. We already play their big brother every year as it is - so they dont add any geography. They will have to give up football at some point since it is unsustainable for them. Please can we drop them from the list of maybes?

This year we complete a H&H with Texas State. Would you rather do a H&H with Texas State or Rice?

I would drop them in an instant for any lower tier P5 school or G5 school with some clout. They are a 1/2 step up from a FCS school and better than an open date.

Which G5 schools have clout? App State? BYU? They already get games with ACC, Pac-12 and SEC schools. We've played most of the MWC before and none drew significant fans in Dallas.

Did you intentionally cut off the last sentence in my post? Maybe just an oversight.
