Novak also said that FCS schools are helped by talented football players transferring from FBS schools who are immediately eligible to play.
“They’ve got some big-time talent on those [FCS] teams,” Novak said. “They’re pretty darn talented, and people need to understand that.”
Novak said he believes teams like SIU and the aforementioned Mountaineers would compete for championships in FBS conferences.
“[SIU] would compete in our conference very well,” he said. “I think they’d be right in the chase to win the championship. Appalachian State would probably be in the top 50 of the IA teams in the country, they’re that good.”
