  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    First, there actually is an FBS bowl game played in that small soccer stadium ( the Frisco Bowl). Second, I'm sure UCF was thrilled to play in the 2009, 2012 & 2014 St Petersburg bowl game (formerly the Beef O'Brady's Bowl, currently the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl) in the middle of December in front of <30K fans in a baseball stadium. Those are the kind of FBS bowl games NDSU fans are reluctant to leave FCS for not New Years Day games against Auburn.
  2. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I hope you realize that the article you posted in no way supports your doomsday predictions about the future of the Summit. In the article, Douple acknowledges that change may be coming but expresses confidence that the Summit will be able to meet those challenges. The premise of the article regarding Augie is that they probably aren't able to move and that the Summit likely wouldn't want or need them anyway.
  3. Non-UND FCS Thread

    If it was the Bison that were blessed with the cupcake side of the bracket why was it JMU who almost -- and really should have -- lost?

    "Looked" terrible is exactly the point. NDSU is the reason they looked terrible. Despite the way they looked last night, Sam is a good FCS team. They likely would have hung a big number on this year's UND squad.
  5. UND (4-4) vs NDSU (3-5) 12/9 7 PM

    I'd say your guards are more athletic but not necessarily "better.' I'd take miller over either of your starters. The rest of the NDSU's team is bigger, deeper, and more talented.
  6. UND (4-4) vs NDSU (3-5) 12/9 7 PM

    Good grief, NDSU outscored UND by 31 points from the field. Without the huge disparity in free throws it likely would have been a blowout. Based on that single game, I'd say that NDSU has a much better balanced team than UND.
  7. Non-UND FCS Thread

    Stuff happens. NDSU was only undefeated during the regular season once in its run of championships. NDSU will be favored if they play in Texas.
  8. Non-UND FCS Thread

    Hard to win with 5 turnovers. Don't expect the same in Frisco (if both teams are there, of course).
  9. Non-UND FCS Thread

    From what I saw yesterday, JMU won't make it past SDSU.
  10. Would You Rather

    Actually, I'm not blaming anything on UND. I highly doubt UND would have favored cutting scholarships in the first place. IMO, UND was one of the teams that, in the long-run, stood to be hurt by reducing DII scholarships. I was just pointing out that those who say that the NCAA reducing DII scholarships did not hurt teams like NDSU are wrong regardless of who may have been behind it.
  11. Would You Rather

    Recruits generally go to the most competitive school that offers them a scholarship. If you cut scholarships to all schools, some of the top players that would otherwise have accepted offers from top-level schools will end up at lower-level schools. This will tend to benefit lower-level schools at the expense of top--level schools. It ain't rocket science.
  12. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    Now, who's spread the BS? You barely beat 4-7 South Dakota.
  13. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    Spare the sarcasm. You know what I'm saying is true. No better than 4th place -- probably out of the playoffs.
  14. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    That team -- the best FCS team UND has ever produced -- wouldn't have come close to winning an MVFC title.
  15. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    More wishful thinking. At this point there's no reason to think UND will do better in the MVFC than it has in the GW and BSC. Until it proves otherwise, UND is a .500 team that occasionally does better.
