I see what you did there.

But I wouldn't trust Illinois to beat Rutgers, even though they should on paper.

Why do they still call it FBS, now that both levels of D1 have a Playoff system in place? 
Makes no sense.

You had me with everything, BUT, comparing Pitt to Florida. Pitt has two blowout losses on their schedule right now to very good Power 5 teams. They had to squeak to OT to beat an FCS school in week 1. They have shown zero redeeming qualities and nearly all computers have them 20-40 spots below Florida. Florida wont win pretty this year, but they are way more of a legitimate team than some are giving them credit for.

Because 1-AA doesn't have bowl games.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebration_Bowl
The Celebration Bowl is a post-season college football bowl game that began play in the 2015 season. The game is contested between the champions of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) — the two prominent conferences of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in NCAA Division I. It serves as a de facto national championship of Black college football and is the only active bowl game to feature teams from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Starting with the December 2017 game, it is played at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium; the first two games were played at the Georgia Dome.

It makes it sound like the lower division is actually the better division. 

1AA was fine.

Agreed. Especially when it came to that joke about how many batteries it took to light up Ann Arbor.
