    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    EWU was probably thinking they could never compete with what U of Montana had: a nearby conference school with fans, tradition, way nicer facilities, and only "game" in the entire state. There's always an excuse for something til it's not.

    Grand Forks Economy

    Was aware of Cirrus. But didn't realize how big Amsoil was until recently with some of my powersport acquisitions. And them having their name on Duluths new hockey arena. Cirrus in Grand Forks at least physically shrunk when Amazon took over part of their building. And then Amazon shrunk and didn't need that building anymore. And now Amazon's presence is going to be virtually eliminated in Grand Forks as the employees start to work at home. They don't need to hire people physically located in Grand Forks anymore. Was disappointed to hear about Polaris moving it's HQ to the cities when it happened as I spent a few summers in Roseau growing up. Crazy to see these big powersport companies all located in Northern Minnesota. (Artic Cat and Polaris were essentially started by the same person.) Textron recently bought Artic Cat. Could be some changes coming to that company. Before the purchase the HQ moved from trf also to Minneapolis. St Cloud has started to become a big Artic Cat hub now with their engines and Atv engineering coming out of there.

    Grand Forks Economy

    Amsoil in Duluth/Superior. Grand Forks leaders seem to be afraid to compete and "take away jobs" from neighboring community to get these companies to move here. Fargo says, "Screw that. We don't care about being good neighbors. Give us your FedEx jobs Grand Forks. Give us your Marvin Windows jobs Warroad (Integrity division), and give us your Digi Key jobs TRF (20-30% or so of DigiKey orders are shipped out of Fargo and that number keeps growing)."

    Human nature: 2% don't care out of the 2,000.... Looks the same as all the outdoor music festivals I've been to.

    First excuse was, "We need to build the indoor practice facility. Then we'll show them!" Now its, "We need new locker and weight rooms at one of the best FCS practice facilities in the country...Then we'll show them!"

    Yup. And ISU was back where UND punted from two plays later.

    Yes. UND was in a conference with Big Ten Schools Minnesota and Wisconsin winning 7 Division 1 titles. While UND football was playing Morningside, Crookston, Augustana, and Moorhead in freezing temps outside. Sure UND hockey got a new arena, but so did UND football...from a crappy outdoor stadium to one of the nicest indoor stadiums in FCS. Then UND Football moved to Division 1. The gap is pretty much the same. They both went from averaging 6,000 to 10,000+.

    I wouldn't be bragging about being behind CSU, CU, and Air Force. But thanks for proving my point.

    The "it" factor was contagious when Keaton was on the field. Still the only UND QB to lead a win over an FBS team and then followed that up by having the best year in UND FCS history: 8-0 Big Sky record and playoffs.

    Well now we're changing it from top dog sport at UND to "NDSU is a good football school." No doubt its hard to compete with a local FCS football team that has been the most dominant FCS/AA team in history...by Far! No other team in the country seems to be able to win a Natty right now until someone blows up NDSU. UND already won a football championship when it was still a hockey first school. This argument then doesn't hold any water simply because its now FCS. UND student attendance at football games is in the top half of all FCS games. I think you're overestimating FCS schools. Did you watch the Sam Houston State game? Empty stadium with only 5,000 people. And that is with back to back national semi final game appearances. UND has some of the nicest FCS facilities in the country in the indoor practice facility and the Alerus complex. Along with some of the highest attended FCS games in the country. 26th nationally last year. (If UND averaged 11,500...tonights attendance.... They would be Top 20 in attendance.)

    Cool Story Bro. Thanks. It feels awesome to be top dog in the state. UNC could have been too if its wasn't such a sh!ty school. And UNC's in state competition did everything they could for the longest time to suck balls too.
