From Indy, I'm within 2-3 hours of Cincinnati, Columbus, Louisville, Chicago, and probably 10 markets the size of Fargo. Go to 4 and you add in Detroit, Cleveland, Nashville, St. Louis.
    Four hours from Indy is most of the makings of a P2/P5 conference.
    Four hours from Fargo is ... Dickinson.

    That's the tough reality.
    We obviously need to leverage the msp market to be financially attractive.

    ...Or Winnipeg...

    I thought NDSU and SDSU would make an attractive pair for the MAC, but I guess not.

    I guess this is a wake up call for me as to how truly undesirable NDSU and the Fargo market is.
    How the heck did I miss UCONN going independent a few years ago?

    It's one of the things I love about living here. Do close to so many other cities. I can drive to Chicago and back in the same day to see a Cubs game. And for perspective, I'm closer to Orlando than Minot. And we are on the western edge of the MAC (only Northern Illinois is west of us). I still think the MAC could eventually consider the xDSUs. Both schools would be competitive in the conference.

    You're 800 miles to Boston or Orlando; it's 750 miles Fargo to Indy.

    I still say the solution is build the Western answer to the MAC (with parts from Summit and BSC).

    Nice map. Notre Dame is a shorter drive than Montana State from Fargo.

    Thanks.
    It does really illustrate how logistically difficult a FBS path is.
