    Interesting to see Wristen involved in this event.

    With the changing money structure of college football I can see some major changes coming down the road, not this year or even the next five but 10-15 years out college football could look very different.

    The bigger revenue schools like those in the AQ conferences plus a few of the other strong programs form a new upper division, AFA would be a strong candidate for this but not a guaranteed one. The majority of the mid-major, non-AQ schools drop down into what is currently FCS level with reduced schollies and travel and much lower expenses as a result. CSU despite their protest goes this direction putting them on a level with UNC. UNC and CSU would likely play in a regional conference with the Montana schools, the Dakotas, Wyo, maybe a couple of Idaho schools.

    At the same time the people in Pueblo are really serious about building the football program at CSU-Pueblo. They get a lot of support from the area and other than the AFA are the only thing going in all of southern Colorado. I could see that program growing into a successful FCS program in the not to distant future.
