    Step 1: apply for waiver to go independent in FBS football (receive waiver or sue); remain in Summit for other sports
    Step 2: schedule all the other independents looking for opponents (they amount to practically a conference already)
    Step 3: build FBS resume kicking everyone's ass
    Step 4: tell MWC to pound sand when they finally invite; accept B12 invite instead
    I don't care what Jim says. That is not the real Ben Franklin. I'm 99% certain.

    We were great before FCOA but it certainly doesnt hurt the cause. We probably pick up a handful of players because of it.

    We have so many advantages. Tradition and winning,
    national exposure, NFL QBs , a system that has remained in tact for 15 years, a unique style, a great home field, elite facilities, great atmosphere, more practice time with extended playoff runs, etc. The Indoor Practice Facility will be one of the final pieces

    COA is a tool. One of many in our toolbox, and we use them all. Of course COA helps but it's not a cure all, and was never meant to be.

    ^ this----------fbs independent is the way to go...i went and watched thee ohio state buckeyes dismantle nebraska a few weeks ago and didnt feel like the pre-game or in-game atmosphere was in any way superior to fargo...i hadnt been to a "big-time" college football game since bohl and co really got the fargodome rocking so i was a bit shocked by this...add to that if we were able to expand the dome by even 10-15k wow and what if we could go the 1660 route and take the TV rights wouldnt that be big time bucks?

    I agree. If COA was the sole reason, NDSU would be more dominant in their other sports too.

    You need to admit yourself into a recovery facility. Your opioid addiction can kill you. If that isn’t your problem, then explain why the Big 12 would invite an institution that does nothing to increase the revenue of their media network. Closed circuit to PB, they f’ing won’t.

    Bingo
    The Big 10 certainly didnt add Maryland and Rutgers because of the quality of their football teams.
    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.

    Notre Dame would be the only team worth playing among the FBS independents. And they wouldn’t schedule us. They don’t need to. They can take their pick from their traditional rivals, plus their guaranteed 5 ACC games per year. They already play USC and Stanford every year, they did a H&H with Georgia, they play Michigan and Michigan State often, they had a Texas H&H.

    They don’t need us. Now you’re left playing UMass, Liberty, not exactly a step up in competition. Then to fill out the schedule we’d end up paying MVSU again to come take a beating, but it would cost even more.
