If I’m not mistaken, you already had this info.

However, you did NOT have the Indiana 2011 schedule till recently – the removal of Delaware St. and the addition of S. Carolina St. and @ North Texas.

Never mind – it looks like the remainder of the 2012 schedule is the new info here. Thanks Kevin!

Indiana dropped Delaware State off? Good….I think if a D-1A schedules a FCS team…the FCS has to prove they can at least compete…I mean Delaware State played a very bad Michigan team last year and still got waxed by 57. DSU or any other FCS shouldn’t be allowed to schedule a “big boy” unless they can stay within 21 pts or advanced to the FCS playoffs. If I’m a Michigan season ticket holder,I do NOT want to pay over 100 bucks to watch a 63-6 game againist a team like DSU…
