    Here was what it looked like as of November 8th:




    It will be interesting to see how many tickets hit the secondary market (I'm guessing it'll be a lot) but it looks like we may sell that mother out with still 7.5 months left to buy tickets.
    In looking at that layout...….looks like plenty of opportunities to crash into a wall...…….just like the Fargodome………

    Familiarity with perilous surroundings....advantage, Bison.

    Sure seems like there is some premium tailgating spots to be sold in center and right field.

    Those would all have to be “hike in” spots to be consistent with Minnesota Ethic and also stadium security policy. But I LIKE it! Have you proposed this to NDSU Athletics and Twins Baseball?

    Right behind the NDSU bench would be a great spot for more seating, but then again the Twins probably wouldn't want there field to be damaged.

    Shouldn't matter as their season will be over by then.

    NDSU and SDSU could come close to filling US Bank, I think.

    They should do this. No one wants to watch another blowout in Fargo anyway.

    A few years ago James Madison played a neutral site game against Virginia Tech at Fed Ex Field in Landover, Maryland (home of the Washington Redskins).

    Evidently that game occurred because a very wealthy JMU booster helped to guarantee a healthy payout to both JMU and VA Tech.

    With NDSU still looking for a FBS game in 2021 and 2023, a neutral site "home and home" with JMU would be fun - one in Minneapolis and one at Landover.

    As a note, per fbschedules.com, JMU does not have a FBS game scheduled in 2021 and 2023.

    I agree...except for the SDSU part. SDSU has a hard enough time filling their own stadium. Seriously...they wouldn't travel well. Not trying to be a dick...but SDSU just doesn't travel. Just think if EWU and SDSU had met in Frisco. There might have only be 6-7k in the stands.

    Agreed, I think that could be a big success if you could get those venues on board with it. That's why I think this "gimmick" at Target Field could be an opportunity for NDSU to show they can make their own FBS level payouts in the future if FBS schools are too chicken shit to play them.
