UND still low on Big Sky overall standings

8 posts in this topic

Apparently, even winning four Big Sky titles, for the first time in Big Sky history that the the Big 4 titles have been swept, did not do much for UND as UND finished seventh overall.  Have not found a press release, but this was posted on another board.  

Big Sky Overall men's and women's 

1.  NAU 8.71

2. Sac St 6.63

3.  Weber St 6.33

4. Eastern Washington 6.07

5.  Montana State 5.96

6.  Montana 5.22

7.  North Dakota 5.14

8.  Northern Colorado 4.56

9.  Southern Utah 4.31

10.  Idaho St  4.20

11.  Portland St 3.95

Apparently, NAU wins based on m&w cross country, ( they were men's national champs), m&w indoor track, m&w outdoor track, m&w tennis, and women's golf.

I think they did combine the indoor outdoor tracks for this award which makes sense.  But always found these awards strange.  How the olympic sports are considered on par with revenue sports doesn't make sense to me.

Would you have rather been NAU, Sac St, Weber, EWU, MSU or Montana last school year in the Big Sky?.....

Or UND?

I would rather have trophies, banners and a sweet dance trip over being in top of these standings.

Agreed. Being nationally ranked in sports like badminton, billiards and ping-pong may help you on lists like this, but it sure doesn't do much for the fan base and alums. I know Gopher fans like to point to lists like this when they are struggling in MBB, WBB, MH and FB.
