    Default Who would NDSU beat?

    I saw this SBNation article linked on a Sun Belt thread. Kind of a fun read. Sorry if it has already been posted elsewhere.

    I don't care what Jim says. That is not the real Ben Franklin. I'm 99% certain.

    I would take us by at least 7 against every team from the MAC, Sun Belt, and CUSA home or away. At the dome I would pick us against the majority of the MWC and AAC but see us as underdogs at Utah State. The only teams that we would be dogs to at home or on the road would be Boise, Fresno, Memphis and UCF. I think we could beat any of those four on any given Saturday but we would have our hands full with Fresno and UCF this year.

    The Bison have proven that they can beat FBS teams. But that has been one-per-year. Much like the arguments against UCF, it is a different question of whether the Bison can win during the grind of a top conference with tough games every week. It isn't so much talent, but depth and discipline that I see in the Bison program that would make them competitive week-by-week against better teams.

    I've thought about this quite a bit and use the same structure with different teams.

    # of teams that NDSU would
    likely be crushed by 7/8
    likely be beaten by 15/20
    be an even match up with 25
    NDSU would likely beat 50
    NDSU would destroy the rest

    Maybe the title of the thread should be "Who would beat NDSU?"

    My boss hates it when I shorten his name to Dick, mainly because his name is Steven.
