    All that takes dollars though and the investment isn't there from the fan base or the AD right now in MBB.
    I think that the ad and the fans spending go hand in hand with the awful home games to start the season it’s hard to get any excitement going

    Beating a MVC team was fun, but not much else to build on until conference play started.

    bingo. if NDSU took a dam risk , brought in a P5 team, hell a big ten team. they'd sell out at 6000. 4000 more seats @ $20 = $80k. that should be cost prohibitive
    I WANT TO THANK TONY < JAIL & EL CHAPO DONT MIX > FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?

    Reality Check.

    Creighton? They AVERAGE 17,000 fans for home games. Thatís approximately 3x the size of our arena.
    Wichita State? Their coach makes $3.5 M. Thatís more than our entire MBB budget.
    $80K to buy a P5 or high major? Try twice that. Math doesnít work. P5ís pay more than that to buy us.

    Pipe dreams are fun, but reality is this is a slow burn and weíve got a lot of building and winning that needs to happen first.

    We know what the upside is for NDSU. BUT-------Whats the upside for the bigs to come to Fargo?

    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.
