    This is most certainly true.

    Not once in all of my travels have I had a person come up to me and say anything about the NDSU-Oklahoma BB game. Never. Or anything BB related.
    But I do regularly have conversations about the football team no matter where I go. Im in TX right now for a month and have numerous conversations about our football team since we got here March 1st.

    On the trip down here did anyone mention the MBB team? Nope. Did any mention the FB team. Yep all the way down.

    When you play football, you gotta like the taste of blood, And 50 percent of the time, it's your blood.

    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.

    Not even sure why we're arguing about this. They're BOTH great exposure. Yeah, among basketball fans, this probably reaches more eyes. But seriously, here in Denver, more know about the football program. Just last week I was at the liquor store, and the guy working there said "So, did you guys win it all again this year?"

    It may be just the hardcore FB fans, but also only the hardcore BB fans will remember a one-and-done thing.

    Again, not sure which is more exposure, but what the hell, all are good...

    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!

    ...on a public message board.

    Just pretend you don't know what the topic is for a second and think about that. Why post it if you aren't interested in debate?

    I'm picturing Trump inviting our basketball team to the White House because we made the NCAA tournament again.

    That said, we are a football school and a decent basketball school. Kind of like Oklahoma or Ohio State - we will win a football national championship and occasionally a conference basketball championship.
