Thanks for the quick reply!

So it seems like my best bet would be to pick a couple programs I am interested in, and then see what they offer/require?

And thank you for the awesome link and the list. I'm actually hoping to be able to focus on U.S. expansion from around the 1870s to 1920 or so. Not that I've thought about it at all. >.> But yeah, that will help me narrow things down a lot, I think. Thanks.

2. Do what I did and go through every damn D-1 football school in you can think of and Google "Big school graduate history" and spend months pouring through them.

LOL. That's one of the reasons why I picked my current MA program! When it came to start applying for PhD, I realized that my school was the ONLY D-1 football program. I agonized over this. "What can I do to have fun if I can't go to a football game?!" Then a prof suggested another D1 school and I said to my football crazy mom, "Hey Ma! I have another football school for you!"
