    You mean Delaware beating a G5 team that was 4-10 the past two seasons doesn't mean FCS is saved?? Yeah, I have no doubt that it means a team other than JMU will be playing us in the semi's/finals every year.

    The University of the Incarnate Word was looking pretty good this year though

    Yeah, I mean look at the FCS in the Southeast, it is a complete abyss when the SoCon at one point was the class of the subdivision. These programs are not really getting replaced, we have run out of viable programs in some regions.
    NDSU to the FBS always. In all ways.

    Huh. I know an FCS team that recently lost to a P5 school that was 1-11 last year. Funny how that works.

    PAC trying to finalize their media deal ... negotiating with Amazon, Apple, ESPN.

    Rumor is once they complete that deal, PAC might be looking to add up to 4 new teams.
    The big announcements may have slowed a bit, but the wheels are still churning.

    Delaware beat Navy and may be back on track. Montana looks good. There will be others.

    That doesn't mean we should stay FCS forever, just it isn't quite as horrific as some believe.
    Enjoy the moment, there will come a day where we can't count on regular championships. Maybe soon.
    This gets mentioned frequently which doesnít seem to make logical sense to me. In what world are fans going to show up to FCS games in the future if we are mediocre when they arenít showing up now when we are the class of the FCS? The cat is out of the bag for the NDSU fan base. The FCS is stale. Us coming back to the pack and not winning championships 9 of 11 years isnít going to make it more exciting.

    What I meant by that is it is unlikely we compete with OSU and Bama when moving up.
    We are used to always being at the top of the food chain.

    Some of those programs spend more on recruiting than we do the whole football program.

    Well it finally caught up to that FCS team having 22 less schollies than that P5 school. They can only do so much with 63 schollies. If that FCS team was FBS they'd be on equal footing. Funny how that works.

    FBS OR BUST
    Hey UND: 34-9...38-7...34-13...16-6

    Thanks for confirming my point about how useful it is to take one game to make a generalization about an entire subdivision…

    Sure, but Iím not sure that is any NDSU fans expectation. The value of an FCS championship isnít what it once was to NDSU fans. Maybe us fans overvalued the first few and maybe weíre undervaluing them now. Either way the FCS isnít moving the needle like it was for the NDSU fan base and it likely never will. There are lots of fanbases in FBS who never have and never will compete with OSU or Alabama but their enthusiasm and engagement with their teams is still much higher than what we see regularly in the FCS. Maybe there will be some teams who step up to fill the competitive void of JMU, App St., Georgia Southern on the field. The possibility of programs filling the void in terms of fan engagement and support is much less likely.
