Even in some power five schools, it’s a problem. But it tends not to be a problem at successful FBS schools, while at the FCS level, even successful schools garner little interest, with 2 or 3 schools being the exception.
    Since Fisher DeBerry took over in 1983, USAFA has been fairly successful. Usually competes well with Boise State (https://www.sports-reference.com/cfb...p_id=air-force). However, they along with Colorado State, Wyoming and the two New Mexico schools, get little fanfare in this part of the Rocky Mountains. G5 is nothing but college football purgatory. Anyone wishing to be at this level has no idea how terrible of a place it is to be. The grass is pretty brown on this side.
    Hail the BISON!!!

    How are we supposed to get the tailgating rigs to the Bahamas? Does the Frisco Cruiser have pontoons?
    The weather in Fargo keeps the undesirables out.....

    ...Which is why I live near the Twin Cities.

    Do you want NDSU to go FBS???

    First step towards that is completing the IPF. Currently there's a fund raiser going on for Giving Day called the Armbrust Family Challenge where if 100 people donate towards the IPF (minimum is $25) they will donate $50,000 towards the project. Currently they need 33 more donors. Great opportunity to support an imitative that is crucial towards any FBS move.

    Just got off the phone with my son who went to school at Wyoming. I had to sit and listen to him yap about the Arizona Bowl. He asked if the wife and I were going to it. I said, "Why would I want to go to some minor junk Bowl game?." At which point he became rather indignant and started to sound like some of the arguments (albeit good natured) I have had with Sam! Honestly, I preffer all these playoff games and the title game in Frisco to the No Name Bowl tha Wyoming is playing in. I am sure that this playoff schedule is a hell of a lot rougher on the players, especially going all the way to the Championship every year, but for the fans, it is one hell of a kick!

    Here's your participation trophy FBS.

    Well, most of the FBS. Well, those good enough to win 6 games and get a bowl invite. Well, actually everyone except the 4 in the "playoffs". Well, actually its more of a playoff, rather then playoffS.

    I've been singing this tune for 4-5 years now.
    NDSU shouldve took the momentum built up after Carson Wentz and 4-5 titles and put up a full out blitz on a FBS conference

    I'm trying to keep this FBS chatter to this thread, I truly am, but the Bison Fatique thread brings up good points that we all were warned about

    the new car smell wearing off, etc. Klieman & Bohl both mentioned the plateau. here we are. what can we do now?

    our fanbase is becoming disinterested, theyve seen this rerun many times, I am saddened to hear that the admin hasnt heeded the warnings 3-4 years ago being sent out.

    and dont move the goalposts and say. "G5 is losing attendence, bla bla" this is NDSU. we need someone with vision and the stones to motivate our fanbase.

    we need to band together and quite the arguing & figure out the best path forward.
    complacency is a killer

    If we by chance beat Oregon next season there is nothing that anyone would say to me that would convince me that we don't belong in FBS. Nothing. You beat a team like #13 Iowa by out Iowaing Iowa and beat a probable top 10 in Oregon with as much of a brand Oregon has along with resources and money, facilities and prestige, I would be absolutely pissed if the NDSU administration doesn't hold a meeting with Matt Larson slapping down some papers on the table in front of everyone involved with FBS on the top one with a big ? and his opening line is "How do we make this happen?"

    Sadly it will be closed door and nobody will know about it. I guess I'll be running around like a little girl bragging how NDSU beat Oregon.
    Run the damn ball!! PRO FBS

    Then the Big boys say----you dont. And then what?
    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.
