    Whore the team out to p5 2 for 1s. Any p5 school coming to fargo for football is right up there with a national championship...unless youre in the boat that after 4 or 5 they kinda wear off of importance from a fans stand point.

Now, NDSU is in the process of making even more history and people claim to be bored.

    Some people talk about how awful the mid-90s to early 2000's were.... bitches, please. NDSU was winning 70% of their games but to hear people talk about NDSU was 2-9 every year. The FargoDome had all the atmosphere of a Moscow airport terminal in which cheering would get you the "we'd-like-to-you-to-come-with-us-to-a-backroom" experience.
    Ill tell you this...outside of JMU, there isnt a national team that can compete with NDSU.

    If GSU, App, ODU, CCU etc all stayed put, itd make the FCS bearable.

    Montana back on the upswing helps but they still have a lot to prove.


    When sdsu comes to fargo, again these playoffs, will just be the same damn outcome.

    I'm there with ya. Growing up in the 80's I thought NDSU would always be in the mix for championships...not winning every year, but a real contender most years. After a 20 year drought...without even a home playoff game...I'm not taking this for granted. I also look to Northern Colorado's move to FCS...they were on top and didn't have the pieces in place and they have been stuck in mediocrity ever since. If/when NDSU has the pieces in place, I support the move. Until then, I am very happy to enjoy the continued success.

    I'd say he's right that over 50% would like us to move up if it made economic sense. I think your estimate may be extremely high at 20% of the question is "do we move up at any cost, including going as an independent"

    Well said, TAB. Could have not possibly said it better. Further, the game is only part of the experience.....let's not forget that and way more fun than hanging at home watching a B1G game.

    there for sure is a noticeable drop off of ticket demand. a couple years ago you were looking at $100 a seat on the secondary market or trying to get tickets every Friday morning and getting shut out. last couple games have been tons of people who cant even find buyers at face value or at all. For sure the first 2 playoff games will not be full unless we get SDSU or UND. I for one skip those as well since they are guaranteed monster wins and save money for the Semi final which is really the best game all year.. I paid 125 each for last row tix last year nd was happy to get in.

    Things are very different from the 80's - You think any HS star in Florida or even Omaha knew who the Bison were or they were any good? now with ESPN and social media and Especially Carson Wentz, all these kids know and if you aren't solid G5 material its the only place to go.. why would you go to another FCS school that wins 1 title a decade now? so I just don't see us dropping off..

    in all reality we keep getting better long after most college dynasties of 3-4 years have dropped off.. just look at our QBs over the last decade.. all of them have top end P5 talent..

    There's no denying that ticket demand is down this year but your appraisal of two years ago isn't at all accurate. If you were patient and willing to hit the tailgate lot without tickets you'd almost always find them for face value throughout the last 8 years.
