FARGO, N.D. (AP) - It has been six years since the switch from Division I-AA to the Football Championship Subdivision.
Maybe it's time for a name change. The NCAA is funding a rebranding initiative that could lead to a new name for the FCS.
A group of NCAA staff, college presidents, conference commissioners, coaches and athletic directors is working on details for a rollout in 2013 that will coincide with the FCS increasing its playoff bracket from 20 to 24 teams.
There are 120 Bowl Subdivision teams. There are 122 FCS schools. Some have suggested dumping all subtitles and playing under plain, old Division I. Southern Conference Commissioner John Iamarino says that probably wouldn't impress the media or the fans.
