    That's not at all what I said, and you know that. The point was/is that SDSU is just as appealing to a prospecting conference as we are, and it would be foolish to not leverage that when brokering a deal.

    Would be arrogant (and probably wrong) to believe we are more appealing.
    I have no idea if that is true about the runway, but the bigger issue is the chartered flights used by football teams have all the same security, etc. EVERY team that has to fly to play SDSU comes in and out of Sioux Falls, including SDSU.

    Most anything can be overcome save for geography.

    I thought the same thing until looking into it. I was surprised that their website listed Oklahoma State as a 2023 visitor?
    But even so, I would assume that FSD would still be the predominant choice.

    Matt Zimmer is a journalist in the loosest of terms. SDSU Fanboy or Twitter Troll is more appropriate for he and his boy Zach "Ice" Borg. SD media is absolutely laughable.

    This is where we disagree.

    MAC likely will go to 14. WKU was rumored for that spot, but recent CUSA news that came along with the Missouri St add is that WKU will not be moving anytime soon. So MAC is in the hunt for at least one more.

    MWC is not stable. There are still rumblings that PAC2 are going to take some of the MWC teams and reform the PAC. That could take some time though.

    Believe ‘92 said here there have been confirmed discussions with MWC, and that we were pretty close/towards the top of the list for an invite.

    If ML and company think the MWC door is about to open as the G5 separates from P4, then perhaps that is where they’ve placed their bets. If MWC is not an option, then we should be pushing hard to be #14 in the MAC.

    Really strange when he is now working for the Forum; you'd think he'd see the writing on the wall. I suppose they will figure it out eventually when the FCS train crashes into the station.

    Yeah you clearly don't understand TV markets. Brookings Airport is the size of Jamestown. Fargo is getting a 200 million dollar upgrade and was ten times better before that. Claiming Sioux Falls as Brookings is like Grand Forks or Jamestown claiming Fargo
