  1. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Lol you do realize we are already in the same conference right? There's nothing stopping 8 FCS schools from seeking a waiver to go FBS separately. Once they are FBS they can have a scheduling alliance, some could call it a conference...
  2. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    If IPFW and WIU bail look for UND, NDSU, USD, SDSU to try to convince UM, MSU, ID and IDS to join. The Summit could sponsor FB and with the new precedent set by Liberty's conference invite waiver the possibility of FBS would be very real. If that happened and NMSU joined it would be one of the better G5 conferences instantly and a pretty good mid major BB conference too. Not to mention that's 9 impressive academic state schools!
  3. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    That's actually a brilliant idea. So simple and easy that it will never be considered haha
  4. Coach Jones?

    Glad it's finally done and out in the open. Seems like a reasonable deal. I would assume the buyout is whatever's left on his contract at the time so 1 year = $140,000, 2 years = $280,000.....
  5. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Not sure why some of you act as though Douple is the only one running the show. He answers to the member school presidents just as Fullerton did in the BSC. No school gets in without a vote of the presidents.
  6. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    $1 million I think
  7. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Their travel costs would be less in the Summit then the WAC.
  8. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    The soccer thing can probably be solved with an affiliate easy enough. As far as the geographic footprint, I'd say they would be better off in the Summit (minus the Indiana schools) then they are in the WAC. The WAC is crap for schools and geography.
  9. The State of the Summit: Post-IUPUI announcement

    Nothings changed IMO. The Indiana schools were crap to me anyway, good riddance.
  10. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Lots of panic and the sky is falling talk on here by the same folks who never wanted to leave the BSC to begin with isn't surprising. There isn't a need for mass hysteria yet IMO. I think everyone knew the Indiana schools were gone as soon as they got the opportunity. I see it as addition by subtraction. The Summit has shifted west and will be much more geographically appealing to better schools then the bus league loving eastern block. Never wanted to be associated with IUPUI or IPFW to begin with so no real loss on my part. As long as the Summit adds the right schools moving forward I think it will only get better. My first preference to replace IUPUI would be NMSU.
  11. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I prefer we stay with the other Dakota schools but this seems like the perfect opportunity to get the best of the Summit and BSC schools together. The Great North Conference sounds like the ideal situation to me.
  12. Coach Jones?

    No I was seriously curious of how much they offered. It's not like SDSU would have been a for sure loss. Would have been nice to get paid for a road win and quite possible last year IMO.
  13. Coach Jones?

    What were they offering? It had to be less then the bus fare to not be worth it!
  14. Non-UND FCS Thread

    I don't know if they were still in play or not but still the kid was like the #1 ath in Iowa?
  15. Non-UND FCS Thread

    It's nuts. They have beaten out NIU, Iowa and Iowa State on kids already. I suppose that win at Iowa last year didn't hurt.
