    Missouri is no longer the second-largest state in the country with only one FBS program.

    Read ML's comments today ... at least publicly the dumbass is content running NDSU football into the ground by saying they need to wait and see how things play out and "when" (big if imo) another tier is created that's where we need to be. What a fuckin dumbass.

    If NDSU misses the FBS boat I can tell you that I and my group will have a hard time supporting at the level we currently do. Not happy.

    It is kind of ironic all the wailing and gnashing of teeth about how awful the FCS is when it's Missouri St that's leaving. The FCS will be about 99.98% of its former self without da Bears. If anything it makes things harder for NDSU and SDSU to win FCS titles because it takes away a team that has been a perennial cellar dweller in the MVFC outside of the few years Bobby P caught lightning in a bottle with a load of transfers.

    Too little, too late in my opinion. This push from the local media should have happened 5 years ago.
    It took him until now to figure out FCS football has been dying? It's been dying since I was in school.

    FCS football is dead. Such is life.

    If we aren't going to FBS and we are going to continue to not give a shit about basketball, we may as well start hockey.
    NDSU to the FBS always. In all ways.

    What a waste of money lol. No one cares about it, it will hurt the brand as we won’t be competitive, and the last thing we need is another Olympic sport that we half-ass.

    There are 0 people who are asking that we add hockey. Let the average Joe be a NDSU football/UND hockey fan. That school can waste their time and money on a sport that no one cares about. We start hockey I’m never giving another dollar to NDSU athletics at least until dumbass Larsen is gone. If he’s looking for something to do, start campaigning to get NDSU to get NDSU athletics equivalent state/institutional funding to put us amongst our peers. We’re about $10-$15M short in that perspective and if we had that we would’ve been Mountain West long ago.

    The tone deafness of hearing people complaining about the lack of FBS and then giving them hockey instead would be 100% on-brand tho.

    Assuming ML knows more than us mere peons, the number he threw out there for the 'premier league' was 40 teams, which would seem to suggest 20/20 SEC/B1G

    IF this is real, that leaves many teams still left in FBS, vying for CFP spot and (hypothetically) 2nd tier playoff. I just don’t see the creation of a new FBS league as remotely viable in this situation. It will be a small and select few, if anyone, and if you believe Herder, UM/MSU/SDSU aren’t interested

    I can't imagine NDSU ever seriously considering adding teh hockies but if that day were to come at the expense of being in the appropriate level of football combined with the lack of support for basketball(both men's and women's) I would easily be able to find a lot of other activities to spend my time and resources on outside of NDSU athletics.
