    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    What was there to retract? Klieman's opinion expressed in that story may or may not turn out to have been correct. In any case, UNA's losing one game, albeit to a DII school, doesn't change anything, and certainly does not require a retraction three weeks after the original story.

    Look at the date of the story. It's 3 weeks before UNA lost to West Florida.

    Read the article again. It's Klieman who says that he wishes more quality schools like UNA would move up, not Kolpack. Are you suggesting that Klieman doesn't know &*** about FCS football? In any case, neither of them says anything at all about a general lack of schools, such as those you mention, moving up. This article is about the quality of UNA's football program and its likely future success in FCS. It has nothing to do with Merrimack, LIU, or Central Washington.

    What are you talking about? McFeely's article is about Elon's history of success, or lack of it, on the football field. He doesn't say a thing about Elon's academic standing in North Carolina, or its reasons for moving to FCS twenty years ago. All McFeely is saying is that Elon hasn't been particularly successful in D1 FCS football since moving up, and that their win over JMU is a breakthrough for them. Do you dispute that?

    The Nickel Trophy

    Or they could have planned ahead so there was money available.

    The Nickel Trophy

    And why wasn't there money in the budget? Yet another screw up.

    Stiegelmeier has been at SDSU since well before the move. Coaching may partly explain UND's fall, but it does not explain SDSU's rise. BTW - wouldn't hiring bad coaches just be one of UND's many DI screw ups?

    The Nickel Trophy

    True, but would you say that UND made the right choice when it decided to not move up with NDSU?

    The Nickel Trophy

    C'mon , do you really doubt that, despite having less success than NDSU in football, SDSU considers its move to DI a resounding success? Can you think of any reason why UND would have been expected to be less successful in FCS football than SDSU apart from the timing and circumstances of the two schools decisions to move to DI?

    The Nickel Trophy

    Sometimes the "responsible" choice is the wrong choice. That was the case for UND back then. If RT hadn't been both timid and arrogant at the same time, things might be different for the program now. UND's handling, first of NDSU's DI move, and then of its own, was indeed a series of screw-ups.

    Pure speculation, we have no way of knowing what would have happened had UND moved to I-AA before NDSU.

    The Nickel Trophy

    Perhaps, but we'll never know will we? On the other hand, there's no doubt about who ended the rivalry game in the first place.

    The Nickel Trophy

    This thread is about the Nickel Trophy. If the Nickel is is retired and stays retired, UND will be 100% at fault. NDSU had nothing to do with UND's nickname or its deal with the NCAA.

    The Nickel Trophy

    I would think UND would not want to open that can of worms. My suggestion is that the real nickel be on display in Bismarck and that the new traveling trophy be "The Wooden Nickel" with appropriate imagery on each side.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    As usual, you're completely missing the point. The point most posters make in this thread is not that UND, or NDSU, should not consider moving to FBS but that your ideas about how and when UND will move to FBS are very unlikely and that you've shown no real evidence to support those ideas. The bottom line is that you've been wrong so many times no one takes you seriously anymore.
