Re: SFA @ UNI - The Indoor War of the Purple

Clenz has a point about Johnson. Best RB I've seen NDSU go up against the past two years and we have faced some tough backs over that timeframe.

UNI by 17.

Re: North Dakota Fires Chris Mussman

UND not only turned down a 4 year home and home, they also said NDSU would fail in it's DI move, it was well documented that they were not going to help NDSU in it's transition by scheduling games with the Bison. Now that both are DI and in different conferences, there is no need for an annual game...

Re: will conference realignment ruin FCS?

Clenz, or other UNI fans, is this a move UNI is considering? Is it something your fans will support, and what would it take, to do it? Who would be for current FCS teams and few current BCS teams to join forces in creating a new BCS conference? Some of the schools I had in mind are Montana, Montana...

You ain't ready....
NDSU offers 16 sports.

I guess NDSU could offer swimming and diving or whatever else if need be but the school isn't adding sports unless it has to.

Re: will conference realignment ruin FCS?

In comparison to the UXDs and SDSU, you're exactly right: NDSU is MUCH closer to being ready. The problem is that despite THAT, NDSU is NOWHERE near being ready for FBS. ESPECIALLY in terms of finding a conference willing to go to Fargo. Short of building a new stadium NDSU has done all it can do. ...

There is no way USD or UND could support FBS football. I'd have my doubts about SDSU as well but at least they have a plan to build the proper kind of stadium. Only NDSU is really FBS ready and our stadium isn't exactly ideal due to it seating just under 19k.

it was legal obviously, but still it was a bush league move by MSU. People can do a lot of legal things but it doesn't necessarily make them right.

Re: Montana State buys out 2013 NDSU Game

No real love for the Bison, but this is a sh*** deal. UNI was offering upwards of $350,000 last year for an FCS team to come in to play on short notice. I am fairly certain no return game was being offered. No takers. I suspect NDSU will have an even shorter list of available options, given the tra...

One thing I do find hilarious is that a few MVC fans think that being good at football is a bad thing, yeah it is terrible that NDSU football makes money and is very well supported.

Re: Montana State buys out 2013 NDSU Game

Because MSU did this a little over a week before March, you do this kind of thing in October. It is the way they went about doing it, just bush league.

Whatever I guess, I won't listen to one second of bitching about NDSU's SOS from anyone though.

What does NDSU bring to the table that the BSC doesn't already have with UND?
A rival/travel partner for UND. Another strong football program, solid basketball and a great school.
