  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I am talking football. I think NDSU was behind Liberty in that regard. I applaud UND for being the only Big Sky football school to offer it, but I saw it more as a reactive move to staying competitive in the recruiting footprint of the Dakota schools.
  2. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    You lost me there, unless carefully planned out = reactive for a decade. UND was late to the party in both moving to D1 and cost of attendance to name a couple things. Now UND is going to lead the best of the Summit/MVFC and Big Sky to FBS? Why FBS? In your vision, will the new Summit have 85 scholarships and COA? I find it hard to believe that the Big Sky schools in your scenario, which are not even offering COA, can now afford 85 scholarships and COA. Any chance your new Summit League would stay FCS and 63 scholarships? I am glad UND is coming to the Summit as the Dakota four offer a strong base. I believe the Summit is more stable than many believe. I don't think UNO is going anywhere with budget issues and UND/Denver now in the league. Don't think the Horizon offers much to UNO. UNC would provide more value to the Summit than UMKC with baseball and football. UMKC would be a warm body. Would like to see the Summit go on the offensive and poach from another conference for a change.
  3. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Will the hockey tie to UND and Denver provide sufficient/any incentive for UNO to stay in the Summit? I'm hoping it does.
  4. UND to Summit/MVFC

    Saw SiouxVolley at the Chia LeBeouf "art" exhibit today. Was mumbling about something about Douple will not divide us.
  5. UND to Summit/MVFC

    I am glad UND is joining the Summit. This is the keystone that the Summit needed. The Dakota schools will now control their own destiny. When the MVC took Loyola - Chicago, over any of the Dakota schools, I thought screw them. With Wichita State potentially leaving the the MVC, it will be a shell of it's former self. Obviously, you will have hockey rivals with Denver and UNO, which will be a good rivalry. As far as the MVFC, who cares? 2020 is a long way off. A lot can change. Summit football, FBS - Tier II?
  6. UND to Summit/MVFC

    I think it is interesting that you use random comments from the NMSU basketball coach of getting the football schools back together as proof that WAC football is happening, but yet dismiss texts from your own AD going to the Summit as suspect. KInd of sounds Baghdad Bob-ish.
  7. UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    What was said in this meeting?
  8. UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    Seems to me this isn't about hockey or football. It's about containing costs for the non-revenue sports. So I honestly think UND is headed to the Summit and will keep football in the Big Sky. I don't get excited about a MVC invite for NDSU, like some people. An I-29 conference with the Dakota 4, UNO, Oral Roberts and Denver would make for a strong base.
  9. Congratulations UND on another national championship!!!

    Always thought "Turn me loose" - Loverboy would be a good entrance song.
  11. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    SV, you said that Fullerton wanted the BSC to have two tiers of football, FCS and FBS. Now you are saying the FCS schools will play in the WAC. Please explain the changes in your grand plan.

    Good luck today UND! Hope you slap Montana around and get the win.
  13. Big Sky Conference Commissioner Doug Fullerton Conversation

    I realize they were referring to the MWC and Pac 12. I believe that COA will be an important part of determining who participates in the "second tier" of college football. It concerns me when top FCS teams like UNI, Ill St., UM and MSU are dragging their feet on it. Makes me think the MVFC and BSC may not be ready for merging with G5 teams and their scholarship and COA levels.
  14. Big Sky Conference Commissioner Doug Fullerton Conversation

    SV, how does UND being the only BSC member to step up to the plate and offer COA affect Fullerton's two tier football plan? Seems kind of weak sauce for the two big dogs in the BSC, MT and MSU to pass on it and say that they weren't going to win the recruiting battles anyway.

    Nice win UND. Now get Portland State.
