Before the year 2000, the NCC could have moved up entirely to DI with only a two year transition period and get an autobid. Why they didn’t do it is amazing stupidity now. Guess the ND schools always thought the Montanas would get them invited to the Big Sky.
That’s UNDS expert on FBS Sioux volley. Lol. The reason the NCC didn’t move: UND opposed the move from the 1970s and assured the NCC they were there to stay. Moved to FCS a few years after the mighty land grants destroying the NCC they had committed to.
UND knew and knows now their business model is in serious trouble. Schools like theirs are D2 with D1 hockey. They were concerned they would lose out to NDSU so they scrambled with an application to move on the last day the NCAA would allow it before a moratorium was in place. They lost out anyway and some realize the predicament they are in but not Sioux volley.
Dear Lord, We come before you and humbly ask you to grant our prayer for a veil of protection to be placed over Donald Trump. May your will be done. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
