I received an email alert today of this Internet posting at "DifferenceBetween.net", which generally delineated the differences between the FCS and the FBS. Of course I went to the site (which is well done) and examined the article. In it I found many vague and often incomplete descriptions so I partially rewrote the article, attempting to keep the original intact and only inserting/replacing some things. Therefore it isn't perfect but I think it is more clear. What do you think?
The big news this week, amongst all the other news, was the decision by the NCAA to move the Division I Football Championship game to a new locale after 13 years in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Frisco, Texas won the bid which boiled down to a choice after presentations were given to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee last Thursday.
Taken together with the expansion of the playoff bracket and the title date being pushed three weeks later, a triple-header
One of these things is not like the others:
Division I adopts 20-team bracket, moves FCS title game to Frisco, Texas (ESPN)
Frisco's Pizza Hut Park to host Football Championship Subdivision title game (Dallas Morning News)
Football Championship Subdivision title game will be in Frisco (Dallas Morning News Blog - Todd Davis)
Chattanooga: Title game headed to Frisco (Chattanooga Times Free Press)
Can you guess which article is different?

Following up on my "Demise of an old friend" blog post on 1/19/2010, it looks as though it was premature.
To paraphrase what Mark Twain once penned, the report of its death was an exaggeration. And quoting Mary Queen of Scots, the famous Monty Python skit, "I'm not dead yet!"
Any Given Saturday has resurfaced and here is the email I received:
