    Can't believe this thread lasted 3 pages. The simple question is what does U of M have to gain by playing NDSU again? Absolutely nothing, so it won't happen. Those games are supposed to be gimmies......

    So we're pretty much limited to a top-25 team if FBS schools only want gimmies?

    Well, they're scheduling Western Illinois which is like playing NDSU except with a much smaller, bored crowd.

    This whole multi-chapter story is just so damn comical.

    JOEL MATURI chatting with his buddies at the local watering hole after the 3 NDSU/MINN games:

    2006: Whew! Dodged a bullet there. Great game......boy we sure had a lot of those fargo folks down here stuffing dollar bills into the TC economy. Can't wait for next year.

    2007: SHIT! What the hell happened? Oh well, the little men in green are pretty good and we have our worst team in over 6 centuries. Boy, we got even more of them Fargo people down here this time. Bet the restaurants and bars did great. Can't wait to schedule the revenge game against those idiots.

    2011: OK, GOD DAMMIT!! That's enough of this F*CKING SH!T. I'm never scheduling these a-holes again!! Where are they getting these kids? It's almost like they're cheating or something. Why are there so many stud Minnesotans on their roster. I'll tell ya this......we're never playing those dipshits again! Get me Winona State on the phone!

    Not sure if you missed my point, but why would they want to play a team who can beat them? Seems pretty simple to me. These games are supposed to be wins toward bowl eligibility, and doubt finances or playing a good team would drive this decision.

    They play MAC teams on a regular basis. Although this year's OOC games went better than the last four.

    Not sure how this contradicts my statement. Which is a more likely win....a MAC game or NDSU? Also, the better comparison is the New Hamshire game since FCS.
