Every season it happens, and in every major college football conference. The Football Bowl Subdivision Schools whip out a big paycheck to have a smaller program, usually from the Football Championship Subdivision, to come and play a game.
The idea behind this is that a big school like Michigan gets a "weaker" opponent to play them at home, beat up on them, and then get an almost, but not always, win in their column. But few of the big money programs will ever go on the road to these smaller school programs.
I know the argument is money, money and pride. But I think that if these programs are so proud to flaunt their name and tradition around don't you think they would take it on the road to a lower division program, or even a much smaller FBS program to show that they will play anyone, anytime, anywhere as they always seem to claim.
Here in my fantasy land here are some match ups with Goliaths going to David's house to show why they are the big, tradition laden, and rich programs they are.
Roll the slides!
