  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    You really don't think that it's a bit hypocritical to complain about others doing exactly what you've been doing? Pretty much every conference you've been a member of for the last ten years has been unstable.
  2. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    You're kinda missing that the NCC, Great West, and WCHA imploded at least partly because of UND's actions. You don't have clean hands.
  3. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Don't throw stones: UND's conference affiliation since 2008 (IIRC) IN: Great West Big Sky NCHC WAC (Affiliate) Summit (2018) MVFC (2019) OUT: NCC Great West WCHA WAC (Affiliate) Big Sky (2018)
  4. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Actually the WAC FBS scenario only lasted about a year with SV. Before that it was an NCAA rule change that would allow the Big Sky to move up to FBS on its own, and before that it was the Sun Belt that would transform the Big Sky schools to FBS. I may be forgetting a scenario or two along the way. SV will never give up on spinning new myths as each myth is proven wrong.

    Huh? What does any of this have to do with your knowing nothing about the WAC's magic-wand ability to create FBS schools until everyone had heard the story? It's your MO, when you're proven wrong move on to the next wild misrepresentation as if you'd known what you were talking about all along.

    Does that surprise you? IIRC, SiouxVolley knew nothing about the WAC's supposed magic wand ability to create FBS schools until it was discussed publicly in Idaho's athletics study. Then he jumped on it as if it had been part of his predictions all along.

    Looks like your boogeyman, Gene Taylor, got a new job. I guess K-State doesn't share your opinions about his integrity. http://www.kansas.com/sports/college/big-12/kansas-state/article144648164.html
  8. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    OK, but so what? Without some sort of proof, there again is nothing either reasonable or logical about SV's assumption that the MVC would only consider schools w/o a men's tennis program.
  9. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Are you really suggesting that the MVC would not extend a bid to an otherwise qualified and desirable school simply because that school has a men's tennis program?
  10. MVC President concerned about a basketball DI split

    Sure, but that's because there are fewer players on a basketball team. Three players is 60% of the starters on a BB team. How good would a football team with 13 "dudes", as you put it, and a bunch of adequate players for the level be? I'd say that would be a pretty damn good team. The same is probably true of most team sports.
  11. UND to Summit/MVFC

    Really? You think it's dumb to suggest that a league that has been strengthened considerably over a number of years can be better than it has been in the past? This is not the old MidCon. It has become a relatively compact conference, with good schools, and a number of traditional rivalries. Those are the ingredients of a fine Mid Major basketball conference. Again, I don't see why it has to stay a one-bid league.
  12. UND to Summit/MVFC

    I don't see why the Summit has to stay a one-bid league.
  13. UND to Summit/MVFC

  14. UND to Summit/MVFC

    Well, that's exactly what US News did and they rated UND the #202 national university. It is what it is.
