    Default We are a basketball school!

    4 Division 1 Big Dances in 10 years > 7 FCS football titles

    Don't even try and debate this, you are foolish if you do.

    NDSU's will to win is un-matched in big spots.

    the NATIONAL exposure for the BIG dance trumps fcs title game on sat 1pm in january.. NDSU will be on MILLIONS of Brackets!

    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?

    Well... apples to oranges

    Making the playoffs 40% of the time and winning 1 game vs winning the National Championship or making the semifinals 9 straight years. Wins over top Big Ten and Big 12 teams.

    I want to see us be a basketball school though. Need to sustain the success and start packing the SHAC for that to happen. Need the revenue

    15X FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! Since 1960, NDSU has more Football Championships than any team in the NFL , D1A, D1AA, D2 or D3
    1965-1968-1969-1983-1985-1986-1988-1990-2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-2017-2018

    I don't think Chapo knows how to do purple text. Just assume everything is purple.

    They have to start bringing in better non-conference teams than the crap they are bringing in now.
    They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.

    No, we're not. If you want to say making the big dance 4 times brought more exposure than winning 7 FCS titles go ahead. It's a different type of exposure for each and each is great but a basketball school averages more than 2,000 for home attendance throughout the season. A basketball school makes more of an effort to schedule quality non-conference home games. A basketball school would pay their head coach more than ~200k a season. A basketball school would've renovated the BSA in a way that made more sense from a basketball standpoint.

    So do you want the 40,000 seat football stadium since we now a basketball school?

    I think from a money standpoint and national attention standpoint the Basketball tournament is a much bigger deal than the football championship. Locally and regionally, the football championships are perceived to be the bigger deal.
