Notre Dame and the BCS[edit]

I don't think it's true that Notre Dame is the only school that can be selected for a BCS at-large bid, it's just that they have a special provision guaranteeing them one if they qualify. To wit, Utah, despite not being in one of the BCS conferences (or being Notre Dame), received a BCS at-large bid. Thus, Army or Navy could also qualify, but they would have to be in the Top 10 or whatever the minimum is. --Cliedl 21:55, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

You are correct in that other schools can be selected for BCS at-large bids, in fact, there are also certain conditions which guarantee a non-BCS school a BCS bid. The distinction however, is that Notre Dame is actually a *member* of the BCS. The BCS is an organization representing the six major conferences and Notre Dame. Other schools, like Utah, Boise State, and Hawai'i, have played in BCS bowl games, but their conferences are not members of the BCS organization. Cogswobble

Why is AF in MWC but Army and Navy Football are "independent?[edit]

Why is Air Force Football in the Mountain West Conference but Army and Navy are independent for football (and in Patriot League for everything else? Why are none of the 3 in the Patriot League for football?

Army and Navy are in the Patriot League —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.109.152.202 (talk) 21:23, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Army and Navy are in the Patriot League for most sports, but because the Patriot League does not sponsor I-A football, they are independent for football. Air Force would not be in the Patriot League for geographic reasons. 159.153.129.39 (talk) 21:14, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Idaho and New Mexico State[edit]

Didn't you know that these two football teams are becoming independent in 2013? Make sure the article mentions both of them. 174.1.237.86 (talk) 01:05, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

The schools are still trying to get some affiliation for 2013, although the odds of them doing so are slim to none. Also, the haven't officially announced their independence. JeffConn (talk) 17:20, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Location images out of date[edit]

Can someone update the location images? As of the 2015 FBS season, 3 schools (Army, BYU, and Notre Dame) are Independents, but the other graphics show Navy still. Thanks, Natg 19 (talk) 00:59, 17 October 2015 (UTC)
