    You list your location as Minneapolis... I would want it too if I lived there

Maybe I'm an outlier, but this does nothing for me other than I'll miss a game that I could and would otherwise attend.

    Great point. For folks that travel from West of Fargo that means more $$$ out of our pockets. If it were WI at the new Vikes stadium that would be cool.

    I think we could get pretty close depending on opponent. 50k capacity. The idea is to tap into new fans and expand right. Why does it have to sell out?

    I do agree that part of it is a bit of a gimmick but you are doing it to attract some attention to the game. Not sure how the sightlines would be but Target would probably be better then most baseball stadiums because it is a very compact stadium.

    Correct. And I'm not saying this should be an every year thing. But a one time event to capitalize on all of this exposure that NDSU has been receiving, I would be all for it no matter where I lived.

    Have you ever been to a FB game in a BB stadium?

    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.

    Completely agree with you and Student. I would be surprised if we get ANY new FBS games scheduled in the immediate future. If we can't get yearly FBS games, this would be an awesome alternative. Would be exciting, awesome exposure in the cities, rub it in to the Goofs, what's not to love about it?
