“The Southeast Conference [SEC] is not going to change; they’re still going to play I-AA programs, and the Big Ten came out and said they didn’t want us to go that route,” Kill said. “I’ve always been one where when an authority tells you to do something, you just do what you’re told and you move on.”
Bohl said from what he has gathered, the Big Ten is the only FBS conference working to eliminate future FCS games. Kill would prefer a level playing field, nationally, but he acknowledged there is little for a Big Ten team to gain by scheduling an FCS opponent.
“You’ve got the little guy getting the opportunity to compete against the big guy; that’s what it’s all about,” he said. “You pay them, and then they can beat you. It’s more of a risk than anything, in some aspects.”
The Gophers are 24-point favorites against Western Illinois, but both teams are 2-0. Kill won’t let his team take the Leathernecks lightly.
Then again, he didn’t hand out those student tickets expecting anything less than a win.
