Maine won the Championship of the Colonial Conference during the regular season, but still there is or was a playoff - to participate in a bowl game. Maine lost. Twice. New Hampshire beat Maine yesterday and will continue on towards a bowl game.
Maine being the champion hosted the game. The NCAA chipped in how much? Oh, no! Maine had to PAY the NCAA for the privilege to the tune of $30,000.00!
You get the picture "small schools pay" "big schools collect" There is something wrong with this picture. It's especially wrong because the NCAA is all about FAIRNESS. Oh well, who really gives a rats ass?
