    The arguments that the Idaho fans are posting are similar to those the pro-FBS crowd argue here. Better to be in the big pond with the big fish as opposed to performing well at a lower level. It will be interesting to watch Idaho and see the impact of their move, although I could argue simply moving has probably generated more national interest in their program than anything they have ever done on the field.
    The weather in Fargo keeps the undesirables out.....

    ...Which is why I live near the Twin Cities.

    Never cease to be amazed by those who somehow think most G5 level of play is higher than MVC level play. Couple that with thinking P5 fans take them seriously because they are FBS......

    Only reason P5 schedule G5 is they look at them just like the FCS, a Guarantee win, OOC Schedule fillers. They do not look at New Mexico St and say...man we have to play them they must be good because they are FBS

    The thing is a P5 will schedule New Mexico State expecting to win, when they really trumpet that NMSU is FBS is at the end of the season when they are being compared to a team who has a win over an FCS who by all metrics grades out better than NMSU.
