    You know those ratings are flawed. They don't take in account households with more then 2 tv sets and other things of that nature.

    That would benefit lower levels of football for sure but getting through season would be difficult. You need pratice squad players

    You seem to believe that SDSU will never be FBS simply because Brookings is a smaller city. I on the other hand believe that when an invite is extended to NDSU it will also be extended to SDSU. I could be wrong, time will tell.

    NDSU's market is North Dakota and a chunk of Minnesota, I think? What is SDSU's? Presumably something similar?

    Agreed. IU's market isn't Bloomington and Purdue's market isn't Lafayette. Both are Indiana plus a good reach regionally in Chicago and other cities. The Dakota schools at definitely statewide plus western Minnesota.

    NDSU's media deal is $2M/yr. SDSU is $1.3M but that ends in 2026 and with their recent success I expect their new contract to be pretty close to ours. SDSU is certainly no slouch in the market.

    NDSU is statewide coverage. Everyone gets it. Midco is a dying Network that is laying off employees and cutting programming because nobody has cable and they need a subscription to stream. I would be surprised if SDSU renews with them

    The question is would a Sioux Falls station step up. As long as Midco continues to offer something, I'm doubtful they are going anywhere. Only possibilities would be KELO or KSFY if they would step up. If they could get KELO, it would be huge and quick state wide tv coverage.

    I tend to agree.

    A reasonable scenario is something like NDSU/SDSU/UM/MSU going to MWC as a package deal.

    However, if the destination was MAC instead, it could be only one school taking the #14 slot. I don't think they are looking to add more than one school right now.
