    I still don't know how the heck Nebraska got in. The only non-AAU member of the B1G.

    Strongman good points indeed,

    This is MY OPINION :
    David Crum Runs the Ram Club at Colorado State. http://csuramclub.colostate.edu/about/
    David Crum wanted to run Teammakers here as well & push for FBS conference while increasing donations 10 fold.
    Sadly I'm afraid that's why he didn't get the job.
    I have talked about this with a couple ndsu connections, but this is MY OPINION so flame away.

    Strongman, we need the NDSU Admin to pursue FBS and we need them to actively approach FBS conferences that's the major issue right now, Dam right NDSU is good enough and brings a lot to the table for a Football Only invite to 1 of the G5's
    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?

    They were stripped of AAU status around the time they were entering the conference. I believe they were still AAU when they accepted the invite. Too lazy to do the research on the exact timing.

    After we have success dominating that conference and have a new 30,000 + seat stadium, then we try to join the MWC--the top non Big Five Conference. At this time, NDSU can probably join as a full fledged member--not just football only. After sustained success in the MWC, then we can realistically look at joining the Big 12 or even the Big 10 (which at this time will probably have 20 to 24 teams.)

    Questions?
    Wow...you gonna share whatever you got there?

    On the note of the football only conference. We have always played in a conference where FB and all other sports shared common opponents even though it was through different conferences. If the jump to the belt were for FB only...there would be none.

    Now thats some serious trolling. Its almost like Gabe wrote that but its not about the FargoDome.
    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.

    I wish you would quit calling us the QUAD time national champions until we actually do it. I am still enjoying being 3 time NC!

    And where do you propose we get all the $$ necessary to do this? Not only will we need to raise money for theadditional FB scholarships, we would have to offer an equivalent number of scholarships for a female sport due to Title IX. I think all our women's sports are already fully funded so what sport do you propose we add? Add on start up costs for that sport, facilities, coaching salaries, travel.....and that is not even addressing the cost of a stadium.

    And no, a big fundraising thermometer in front of the SHAC is not gonna cut it.
