    Hmm, looks like 5 home games during a 12 game season....

    ...... Mountain West Commissioner Craig Thompson is not your average administrator.

    In a piece by Chris Vannini with The Athletic, Vannini asks Thompson why he’s so confident in the stability of the MW in which Thompson basically responds that there is no one left geographically besides BYU and New Mexico State and that the more likely scenario would be contraction within the conference......
    I always enjoy links to reputable sources that show Mountain West (or MAC)
    interest in adding NDSU. Especially current ones.
    Please add on to thread.
    Extra credit for links showing where Wyoming is interested in NDSU being in the MW; e.g. U of Wyoming President....Wyoming AD....Wyoming HC Bohl....or at least the Wyoming beat writers.

    Apologies if there is a better thread for this post - mods please move if so. According to a Strib article this morning if the 6-0 Golden Gophers are able to topple Rutgers on the road this coming weekend they will have a 7-0 start for the first time since... 1960. They will also be 4-0 in the B1G for the first time since 1967. Many commenters to this article and understandably most have a bit of stars in their eyes. That naturally brings out the realists, one of whom posted this little gem:

    "And yet we had trouble with South Dakota? Nebraska couldn't beat NDSU."


    Well, duh.

    As you likely know (based on your location), Minnesota fans (and Iowa for that matter) get excited in the preseason based on who isn't on their schedule. Its where they are at as a program.

    it'd actually be on every tv in every bar in the area... and make for some kick ass tailgating and watch parties.

    Also, it'd be on every sports bar across the country and sports bettors paying attention trying to make up for their losses on the day.

    I would be surprised if we would go the MW route. It's outside of our recruiting footprint which is important for a school like NDSU. Fargo is remote from everyone but the MAC is at least in the direction of our recruiting footprint. One of the key reasons I believe UND struggled in their transition is they were playing all their games outside their recruiting footprint. That will be one big improvement they should be able to make in recruiting now that they are in the Summit/MVFC. The MW is a better football conference than the MAC, but NDSU would likely be much more successful in the MAC than the MW. Going the MW route would be a huge risk in recruiting (all sports not just football) and fundraising.
