    I'm guessing this means that K-State will be scheduling a home and home with Alabama.

    One gimmick game hardly proves that we should move to fbs.
    If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles"

    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 hard to figure out. From a football standpoint we should be FBS. From a funding standpoint we aren’t quite there yet.

    And in my opinion, several of the state colleges gotta go. Dickinson State, Mayville, Valley City and maybe Minot are sucking funds from a state that can barely support the flagship state colleges

    I sincerely don't know what about my statement you guys object to. I said "yet again...". It isn't the "one gimmick game" by itself. The ability of this team to turn out fans for piece of $#!t FCS game against a team no one cares about in a baseball stadium 3 hours from home is one more piece of evidence, among countless pieces, that we have the fan support for FBS.
    I don't care what Jim says. That is not the real Ben Franklin. I'm 99% certain.

    NDSU has better fan support than a lot of G5 teams out there. I'm not sure you'll find anyone here willing to argue that. However, that alone doesn't make NDSU an attractive option to any particular FBS conference nor does it cover the cost of an FBS move (at least not without a larger venue).

    Even if we did eliminate those colleges, that money would never be funneled into athletics. Until all the FBS wannabees can come up with adequate funding, it's still nothing but a pipe dream.
