    sad thing is, some of the anti fbs crowd will be cheering for a NDSU loss soon so they can keep that narrative going.

    it became very clear in playoffs this year and vs sub par teams at home, the fargodome had lots of empty seats, people already know the outcomes, NDSU has plateaued We CANNOT do anything more in FCS! that is the problem.

    IF we are unwilling to even look at FBS (which is what Dean/Matt are telling us)
    then the only way to right this potential sinking ship is to gather NDSU, JMU, UNI, SDSU, Youngstown, Montana, Montana State, Missouri State and make a coalition/committee to go after the G5 conferences and convince them to break off..... they will never break off.


    and trust me, Dean & Matt know my thoughts, the 38,000 semi enclosed on campus stadium with 4 big donors is probably the most appealing, $50 million each, they each get a corner of stadium for marketing, they get suites. Raise the other $100 million and Voila... lets go and keep every dime to NDSU.
    I WANT TO THANK TONY < JAIL & EL CHAPO DONT MIX > FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?

    You're the one with the boner about all of our best players leaving early.

    They're working hard to get one "big" donor to get the remaining dollars needed (less than 10 million I believe) for the IPF, but you realistically believe there are four "big" donors ready to drop $50 million dollars each? The frat boy partying into your 40s really did a lot of damage to your brain cells dude.
    Hail the BISON!!!

    Yep. I think most fans would like to see a jump to FBS. Some of us just believe that that is a bridge too far right now for NDSU given the amount of money it would take, the limited resources available, the need for a new stadium, the state level politics that would be involved, and the unavailability of a good conference fit.

    I'm willing to listen to ideas, but so far none of them are grounded in reality. If it's done, it needs to be done right, and personally I have not seen that path.
