    Grad bison. FSN is the answer, I know NDSU & Valley news doesn't want to hear that (they are making at least $100k off NDSU games) but simulcasting of FSN opens up the entire Midwest and makes NDSU an even bigger regional school.

    NDSU is over 50% Minnesota people. NDSU is regional, you can't deny that fact.
    Can I please come back? Ill put a disclaimer in sig that bisonville isn't responsible for my comments. FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?

    That, again, doesn't matter. A conference cares about markets so they can get a conference-wide tv deal on a national network. FSN doesn't do that. Our passionate fan base doesn't matter. Our attendance doesn't matter. Our tailgating doesn't matter.

    Still NDSU is a regional school and should be marketed and branded as such.

So unless you have a plan where the Fargo tv market is 1.5-2 million none of your ramblings matter. And no, the twin cities don't count as part of the Fargo market. This is the link you need to look at. Hint: scroll to #116

    couldn't it be argued that the WHOLE state of ND is the "Fargo Market"? Many other schools only have followings from their immediate area (due to many schools being int he state/region). If NDSU decided to seek a conference they could easily tout the entire state as being part of their market. They would promote the television data for the statewide broadcasts for football.

    I don't have any idea how many actually watch the games via statewide television however it's much more than just Fargo/Valley City.

    Perhaps, that's still not very many tv sets in the eyes of the people who decide these things.

    No it shouldn't. It should be branded as a national university with very high research activity.
