Underdog Dynasty

College football has the greatest lore of any American sport. Its roots extend to the beginning of the country and so many stories go untold or get forgotten. At Underdog Dynasty, I tried to prevent that by telling stories from the Football Championship Subdivision.

FCS is just below the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in the hierarchy of the sport. But it contains some of College Football’s best and wackiest stories.

This season, I dove into the history of the Citadel-Furman rivalry and why the schools are perfect rivals for College Football. I tried to explain the context of an insane FCS weekend, which included a game that ended on a hail mary and one that featured 9 missed field goals.

I also wrote about FCS’s top two programs: James Madison and North Dakota State. I concluded (rather easily) that NDSU is the most dominant program in College Football, regardless of division. Then, I visited JMU to see their rabid fanbase first hand.
