    Per the BIG, there are no make up dates in the conference schedule and all cancelations are declared a ‘no contest’.

    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

    Sports aside it would be the best thing for the university.
    correct. people keep getting upset for being pushy. its because I know we need to 1st get the foot in the door, 2nd succeed at a place like MWC for 5-10 years then spring board into the big 12

    if pud Manhattan and Ames can have a 55,000 stadium, NDSU & Fargo surely can
    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?

    How many people are within an hour of the respective cities you talk about?

    Ames- 1mm with Des Moines

    KC - 2 or 3 Million from Manhatten.

    Reason #2397423947 to go FBS Klieman says what everyone knows: NDSU doesnt belong here

    When we were at North Dakota State, we were better than everybody on offense and defense,” Klieman said. “So why would we waste an opportunity on roughing a kid? Here, it’s much more competitive offensively and defensively. You may not have an advantage on some of those things, so you better find a way to have an advantage on a week in week out basis. So we collectively as a staff are going to put a lot more time into special teams than we think a lot of people are, because it has to be the edge.

    “My previous place, we were favored by four and five touchdowns every time we played so you didn’t need to be as dominant on special teams.

    If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

    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.
