Colonial Athletic Conference (CAA)

The University of Richmond just completed a fantastic season on the football gridiron by winning the Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) (formerly Division I-AA) National Championship. This championship and the inclusion of other CAA teams in the playoffs (such as James Madison University) prompted a question: Is the Colonial Athletic Conference the most dominant FCS conference in the country? To further promote discussion, consider this:

In addition to Richmond… Continue
