    This is the bottom line------

    Now back comes reality – NDSU does not have a conference invite. There is no indication NDSU is on the radar of any FBS conference, and NDSU seems fine with that. It should be, because there are not many opportunities in FBS that give Bison football an unquestioned upgrade on its current position of primacy in FCS. While the Bison pull in less revenue in terms of bulk dollars, there is far more bang for the buck in FCS than in most of the Group of Five. The fact of the matter is, NDSU has broad autonomy and a perennial national championship contender at the FCS level. Surrendering that autonomy for anything that isn’t a massive, sweeping upgrade is a bad trade for Bison football.

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    Fulfill its right? Really? No title t-shirts in the weight room but we're entitled to FBS?

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow. When you can't retell for yourself the stories of your life then you live in a prison... Somebody else controls the story. - S. Rushdie

    dam right. isnt' 128 - 8 and 8 titles enough to prove that NDSU is too big for FCS?

    NDSU should've left in 2013 when we really had momentum and Carson Wentz coming back, we'd be a freakin powerhouse perennial top 25 team by now in 2020.

    How does NDSU "leave" in 2013 (you keep refusing to answer this question legitimately, meaning you ignore to understand how the real world works)? And if it had a possible way of doing so, Carson's future as a NFL player could have been jeopardize being that NDSU would have been under a transition period, which means no playoffs, no Championships games and most likely, no bowl game during his tenure as a Bison QB.
    Hail the BISON!!!

    It seems interesting that we need to move up to find more competitive games, but in all the FBS scenarios we still kick the crap out everyone and are easily a top 25 team.
