    More FCS recruiting competition for us...UNA is always stacked with FBS transfers, too.

    Yep. Looking at their roster, it looks like about half of their players (including the majority of their skill positions) are FBS, FCS, or JUCO transfers. And most of those transfers are from FBS schools. Of course Lee Chapple is their quarterback, and in my opinion it's good to see him have some success there. They also have an experienced D-I coach in Terry Bowden, who was successful at Auburn and also built Samford.

    It'll take more than $7.5 million to be competitive and running a Transfer Program doesn't work in FCS, ask Chattanooga. UNA has a good history and average @ 10,000 in attendance, so they're a good candidate. Membership in OVC or Southland (looking for schools) would fit. I would equate them to Central Arkansas.

    They've done a lot of renovations to their football stadium recently- it now seats more than 14,000 and also has a new LED scoreboard and turf replacing grass. Oh yeah:

    The new three-level press box consists of a first level that seats up to 50 sportswriters. The second level has areas for coaching staffs from competing schools, the public address announcer, the clock operator, the stadium manager, and also provides space for radio crews from both home and visiting teams. The third floor is used by television and film crews.
    It also currently hosts the D2 championship game every year. Word is they're wanting to go to the OVC.

    Just think, when UWG grows up they'l be FCS too. By then Ga Southern will have reclassified, and West Georgia will take Georgia Southern's place in the Southern Conference, and Western will finally have some competition for SoCon bottom feeders.
