    What happened to the KC game versus Florida State?

    Are we ever going to play that again?

    NCAA no longer allows those extra games to be played, but that was a great time.

    Why would we? It was a one game thing with the Eddie Robinson Classic. I guess we could play them again if they join the Big 12.

    The Eddie Robinson Classic isn't played anymore. We were the last ones to play in it, though.

    I don't think we will see very many big time non con games in the future as long as we have a 9 game conference schedule and are playing the hoks every year.

    Why? Serious question, how would this be any different than the Chick-Fil-a kickoff in Atlanta or the Cowboy Classic in Dallas?

    Because the Eddie Robinson and other similar games were considered exempt and didn't count against the maximum allowed (12, that year). So ISU had 13 games in the regular season.

    The games now count against the max, so it's not a "free" game.

    The one glaring difference is that those games still exist.
