    How many MVFC teams are doing FCOA? From past conversations, this is what I remember:

    1. NDSU
    2. SDSU on case by case basis
    3. UND even though broke
    4. USD

    Fill in others, please or correct me.
    I think UNi does it on a smaller level, kind of case by case but I could be wrong

    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

    Get me a link, and I'll add it; sounded to me it was to be Bball only at the time.

    I wonder how common it is for teams that compete against NDSU to offer COA on a case by case basis and keep it hush hush? The less they talk about it, the less chance there is for it to cause bad feelings on their teams.

    No way something like that stays quiet in a locker room of 17-21 or olds

    I don't know. Some of these schools like SDSU have publicly said they offer it on a case by case basis which is already kinda shady. How many do but just don't advertise it and tell the players that get it to keep it to themselves? I can see a 17-21 year old keeping his mouth shut for a few grand a year.

    When was the last time you discussed your salary/compensation with any of your co-workers? And if your employer threatened you with sanction (of any kind) for doing so? The last time for me was when I was indeed a 20 year old but this was in a sales environment where each salesperson's monthly production was publicly posted on a wall and updated daily that ALL employees could see.

    The kids know what schools offer it and what schools dont. i am sure the kids are told upfront when they are recruited on how much the full COA is and how much they get. One question I need an answer on is the COA different for a Chicago kid vs a Fargo kid?

    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.

    It's not the same situation at all, but yeah ok. 2 kids living together 1 has money the other is day to day and nothing is going to get mentioned? And how exactly came the school threaten sanctions to a kid if he talks?

    But maybe your right

    I donít know. Is there civilian oversight of the awarding of scholarships/COA or is that left up to the coaching staff completely? Sanction could be the withdrawal of COA and/or scholarship if there is leakage.

    Not saying this happens at NDSU. I bet it does not. It is poisonous but it is standard practice in corporate America. You try discussing comp with co-workers in corporate and you are going to eventually find some friction somewhere, perhaps terminal.

    Isn't this public information if you know where to look for it?
