So count me as "in" for the MVFC all-sports conference idea. Got to get away from the weak "not wanting to compete in anything" mindset the private schools in the MVC have.

    I prefer putting money into football more so than basketball because for one, our league gets 4 bids regularly now. And secondly the MVC is a one bid league now. Investing a ton of money into a one bid league is stupid. Competing in a sport not controlled by the big schools is more fun in my opinion. When the ACC is getting 9 teams in the NCAA tournament then there's no reason to invest a ton of money into a sport like that. As an ISU fan I'd much rather be associated with North Dakota State, SDSU, USD, etc; than Bradley, Evansville, Loyola, etc.

    Thoughts?

    I would agree with you 100%.

    I'd trade an FCS title for a tourney appearance. I'd trade 2 for a win in the tourney. I'd trade all 5 for a Sweet 16 appearance.

    We did the first two without giving anything up. Oh I forgot you are thinking like a UND fan.

    No way I'd trade a title (or 2) for a win in the basketball tournament. That's just crazy to even think like that.

    Why does it have to be football vs basketball, why not have a well rounded athletic dept and be good at a number of sports. Both NDSU and SDSU have had post season success in football (bison obviously way more success than the jacks), both have made the NCAA MBB tournament and placed women's teams in national tournaments on a regular basis, and have won games in the NCAA's. Whenever I read MVC Fans i don't understand the men's basketball vs all other sports mentality. I also don't understand why they constantly belittle FCS football, college football is a fall weekend event not unlike golfing in the spring or camping at the lake in the summer, football and tailgating is the thing to do in the fall on the weekends. Years ago I heard a saying as goes your football team so goes your athletic department, your football team sets the tone for your athletic dept. the rest of the year. At SDSU there is a reason most of are football games are named, football Saturdays are an extension of our alumni association and community and statewide outreach.

    NDSU's win as a #12 vs Oklahoma was bigger than all 5 national titles.

    hell, NDSU was on every tv station's highlights, every espn hour spot, every fox sports and top of the hour radio news for a full 24 hours after that win. much bigger than a fcs title. sorry.
    Can I please come back? Ill put a disclaimer in sig that bisonville isn't responsible for my comments. FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?
