FRISCO, Texas — HERO Sports FCS analyst Sam Herder joins podcast host Mike McFeely in Frisco, Texas, to talk about the future of the Division I subdivision.

With programs like James Madison, Sam Houston and Jacksonville State moving to FBS, is FCS going to be North Dakota State and perhaps three other schools playing in the semifinals every year?

Sam and Mike disagree on what the FCS might look like in 10 years.
