    Chris Klieman said when he was at North Dakota State, they tried to schedule Alabama, but it never happened. @RossUglem @HankSouth247

    Not surprising. I think we have tried to schedule almost every FBS team. Multiple times.

    465 In a row

    Road, you think NDSU made enough money on the Target field deal that maybe they could attract a mid major FBS team to play there? In other words, could NDSU pay a high enough guarantee and maybe they'd consider it since "neutral" site? Thinking teams like Northern Illinois, Wyoming (yes, know that would not happen, but the type of team I'm looking for), Colorado St, etc.

    But we can't pay enough to come to Fargo, and maybe they can't generate enough revenue to justify bringing in NDSU. (Again, looking at G5, not P5)

    I'd think a MAC team would maybe bite but I doubt a MWC would. Northern Illinois would be awesome but I don't think they are that stupid.

    Maybe a sun belch, like Georgia Southern?

    they have plenty of FCS teams within bus distance that they dont need to take a payment from an FCS team to travel

    I would rather see NDSU pay top FCS teams to play in Fargo

    Now people will bitch and complain about why it never actually happened.

    NEWS FLASH!!

    Schedules don't usually mesh up nice and perfect for everything to fall into place ever so nice. You can try, but sometimes, it just won't work.

    Alabama: you want to play us?
    NDSU: Yes, we have these dates open- xxxxxxx xx, 20XX....etc.
    Alabama: oh sorry, those don't work for us, how about November, 2030?
    NDSU: Nope, sorry can't do that late in the year. Conference schedule goes up to the weekend before Thanksgiving and then playoffs start immediately afterwards.
    Alabama: playoffs? Oh, those two games you play in January?
    NDSU: No, the 4 or 5 games we play in November, December, AND January.
    Alabama: Well, we are the college football national champion.
    NDSU: We are the NCAA Division 1 football national champion.
