Not  good enough to score any points in 2nd half. The 3rd and 15 TD pass he had was maybe the play of the game.

Good point.  He should probably decline his NCAA Championship ring because he played poorly in the second half of the title game.

We all know you've spent the entire day on Bisonville, darell, what else did they have to say?

They're very complimentary of our new nickname and logo

Cass County is kicking GF County's ars. And today is an example of that. UND's FB wins over SU in the 90s woke up the sleeping giant.

Today's recruits don't remember a time when UND ruled the roost.

Nobody has UNDs back. Tough sad times.

Hopefully that will change in the near future. NDSU took advantage of Roger Thomas' bad decision to stay in DII and it has worked out 6 fold.

That’s on Kupchella.  The challenge is NDSU has by all accounts a solid guy at the helm. Not a lunatic like Rocky, where Roger could sit at a recruit’s kitchen table and win the battle by basically being himself.

Which 10 in 10 years are those?

georgia southern

appy state

odu

maybe coastal carolina if you consider them good.

 

between roughly 1978-2010 about 20 teams moved up to fbs...since 2010 i would think about 5 or 6 more have moved up with maybe 5 or 6 dropping fcs football...it. is. a. dying. brand.

 

edit...9 schools have moved up to fbs or added fbs since 2012

edit...11 schools have dropped fb snce 2001

But no one around here has moved up. There just isn't any conferences that would make sense around here except the Mountain West and ask Idaho about trying to get into that one. Unless SV's theory on the WAC/Big Sky being an FBS conference comes true us northern schools are stuck with only the Sun Belt in sight. YUCK!

liberty just showed you don't need an invite to move up...find 8 like minded schools to jump up...shouldn't be too hard...i can think of a couple.

Why move up when they can dominate this division? Don't give me this crap about being tired of it either. If they want to play in the Meineke Muffler Tossed Salad Bowl every year, fine by me, but it doesn't make any sense.

No kidding. Since when is winning boring.

I get that the fan base should be proud, but there are many who believe that they COULD play with Bama.

Clemson, reigning FBS champs, thought that too...........

But if you aren't Bama and the big dogs, who cares who plays in the "Tampax It's That Time of Month" Bowl?  Bison will NOT get past a minor bowl game and frankly, most teams that play in those LOSE money. How much would it cost to move up to get to play in those types of games IF you're lucky?

Oh I just put on my Twitter page: NCAA you just crowned a champion that had to play 4 playoff games. Did that "dilute the regular season?"

I think the big boys should have 8 teams! UCF got jobbed-beat the team that beat BOTH teams in the committee run playoff title game and get nothing out of it.

NDSU isn't ever moving up.  They will be the kings of the FCS, and with as big of a talent gap there is between schools in the FCS division (yeah MVSU...Valpo) they will the kings forever.
