  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I agree Douple lacks vision in pretty much every area. He has pretty much lucked into being in the right time and situation with the Dakota schools and he is milking it for all it is worth. Going along with this Augie farce is taking it to far.

    I wouldn't mind bringing in Mankato, at least they would bring a MN school into the fold. Augie is nothing but a parasite.

    I don't think Augie was targeting this year, they seem to be gearing up more for next year or a bit later based on what Kelby is talking about.
  4. Summit League MBB

    I'm sure Boise is great but it isn't easy to get to from eastern ND. Only thing making SF tough is the stretch of I94 from the ND border to Watertown. My only issue with the Summit tournament is that the title game should be on a Sunday, should follow a similar format as the MVC.

    It's one thing giving $10-20 million to stick your name on a building of a flagship state university, it is something else to give a small private school $100 million to move up a division.

    Why would Sanford give Augie $100 million? Are they going to rename the school Sanford University?
  7. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    No idea really, it seems odd though that a reporter would state it so bluntly if there wasn't. Augie probably wouldn't mind playing football against a bunch of small private schools in the Pioneer. What I don't get is why would the SD schools want this?
  8. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Pioneer League would be their only move or I guess they could go the Omaha route.

    He also tweeted this out today.....

    Honestly, it would be ideal if IPFW left and we brought in both UNC and UMKC. The Summit would basically be a true great plains league at that point.

    UMKC or UNC not sure what the difference is. I'd love to grab NMSU but that seems unlikely.
  12. Non-UND FCS Thread

    There was a massive gap between JMU/NDSU and the rest of the FCS. You could have flipped them in the playoff bracket and I don't think the end result would change, both teams would still be playing each other in Frisco. It is what it is. SHSU and Wofford aren't cupcakes or sisters of the poor, they just match up very poorly with a physical team like NDSU.
  13. Non-UND FCS Thread

    If the AD's, coaches and players called the shots they would but the elitist snobs that run the universities(mainly Harvard) will not lower themselves to compete in the FCS playoffs.

    The Big North concept is solid on paper but in reality you have a school like Montana that is extremely conservative when it comes to realignment. They have had opportunities to leave, yet they stick around. That gives me doubt since they are the big piece that you would need to get to make it work. I'm not sure who is panic stricken in the Summit, IPFW maybe since they are out on the island now but they don't really have anywhere to go. People like to talk about the Horizon or MVC getting bigger but neither of those leagues make bold moves. The MVC especially has been pretty small-time in their realignment philosophy. Maybe that changes but both of them made the most predictable and safe choice in who they just added.

    I still think the Horizon adds 1, you don't go to 12 unless you are making a push to strengthen the league and everything I've seen shows them looking at a bunch of mediocre schools.
