    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.

    I think they have been, and will continue doing that moving forward.

    Happens with every fan base. People move on for many different reasons. We are not immune.

    They are backing it up with their wallets by not paying triple or even quadruple prices for games to see teams that don't even fully fund their programs.

    The minot state beavers game isn't even on TV eh. Always a good t shirt around when you play the beavers. Probably won't even listen for free on the radio for this one eh.

    What would be the worst home or road game every other year. Would it be UNLV who happens to play in Allegiant Stadium and is in Las Vegas? (and we have direct flights out of Fargo) or any of the 3 California Schools? Maybe Hawaii. Road trips through the mountains.

    Nobody would rather see Misery State, Western Illinois, South Dakota, and Indiana State every 2 years instead of...

    Air Force, Colorado State, San Diego State, and Wyoming.

    It's not even close. So we lose the playoffs. The first 2 playoff games have been cupcake teams and fans aren't even selling them out unless it's vs a good team.

    Mountain West Championship Game is in Arlington Texas

    Bowl GAME

    Let's do it.
    Just a reminder about Boise State, since they aren’t on this list. (12 team Mountain West)

    iirc The Big 12 tv contract expires after the 2025 season, so that will be the last possible date Texas & Oklahoma are still in the Big 12. There are substantial early departure penalties Texas & Oklahoma may not want to pay. Perhaps an early departure gets negotiated……

    Then the Big 12 is back down to 12 teams. Do they stay at 12?
    Have seen some interesting 16 team super conference ideas for them, especially since they are fighting to remain a P5 conference and get that next P5 style tv conference. It may be less than the other 4, but is still way more than the AAC currently gets per school.

    Of course Boise would jump at the chance of Big 12 membership and would love to be a travel partner to BYU.
    Is that what the Big 12 wants?

    South Florida would give the Big 12 two Florida teams.
    Is that what the Big 12 wants?

    Other Mountain West teams may end up as targets of Big 12 expansion in a few years.
    Colorado State?
    San Diego State?
    UNLV?

    Cincinnati, Central Florida, Houston & BYU.
    Getting those 1st four recruits really helped the Big 12.
    Those four were head and shoulders above the rest.
    The next 4, should that happen, will be very interesting……but the Big 12 has many choices……

    I think the difference here is that 19K would be in the dome every weekend if NDSU wasn't playing Little Sisters of the Poor.

    Year imagine playing with the big boys and having to schedule meaningful games. Exactly why ndsu can't get a big game now. Nothing to gain by beating ndsu everything to lose.

    Would this change meaningfully if NDSU was G5?
