    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    Conference that FBS schools are joining? It’s Idaho and New Mexico State, not LSU and Georgia. Idaho and New Mexico State . . . Two schools that have no shot at FCS titles. Idaho and New Mexico State . . . You realize its Idaho and New Mexico State, right?

    Keys to Victory: 1)Pound the Rock, Control TOP 2) minimize the big Play on D 3) Make Sammy 1 dimensional, force them to pass

    They’ll schedule the MVFC, as long as it’s Indiana St. probably? Definitely is much more accurate.

    I would say this about the SEC and the ACC, and some in the PAC12/B12. . . They are somewhat supportive of All-DI Football, and make it a priority to play and give paydays to FCS teams in their areas. Whereas, the B1G would just as soon kill FCS football, and pays them as minimally as possible. MN and WI specifically have their panties pretty tight with regard to FCS and G5 football, finding the worst team options possible when scheduling. I’ll give more credit to NE and IA for having a spine. WI did just schedule SD, so that’s a step in the right direction (not sure about the payday.)

    And . . . The MAC would be a better situation than the WAC. So there’s that.

    Is being a bottom of the barrel league at the 85 scholarship level, aspiring for more? If a team is ready, it should make the move. 10 together, no. if a playoff started at the G5 level, I would feel differently. But then it probably wouldn’t be 85 scholarship level, would it.

    Und specifically is just getting its feet wet at the 63 scholarship level. A move to the 85 scholarship level should be based on Unds readiness, no other reason. Quite frankly, UND is significantly less ready than a Montana or Idaho for example. Why would UND even be interested at this point? It’s too soon. Additionaly, if 10 FCS teams all went to the 85 Level all at the same time (with teams that they are recruiting against), would the talent level improve much? “Marginally” I would contend. (See Idaho, 85 scholarships but not as much talent as many FCS schools) The reason to goto 85 scholarships would be to advance past area competitors and create a recruiting advantage, not be metoo with all other area schools. I don’t see a reason or advantage.

    Until there’s a G5 championship, or an avenue to join the FBS playoff for G5 Conf champions, why would you want to make a huge investment like this? I would support my team joining the MW, but I wouldn’t support joining 10 FCS moveups in a weak 85 scholarship league unless there’s a championship playoff to join.

    So, you don’t teally want to compete at the 85 scholarship level, you just want to go there as long as 10 other FCS teams go with you and you can call yourself FBS? Is that right? I got it, you are a poser.

    If you are truly interested in 85 scholarship football, then join CUSA, MW, MAC. Why dilute your big day by joining a bunch of FCS teams? What good does it do for 10 FCS schools to goto 85 scholarships. Separate yourself.

    I’m trying to understand the value of playing with 85 scolarships vs. 63 scholarships for the teams you listed. Let’s examine for UND. Recent Attendance: 10,000; potential 14,000? 2017 Ranking: 171 Of 254; potential top 100? Costs: add 3-4$M increase for 85 scholarships; finding revenue to try to offset is hard. Profile: Elevated some, not a lot; Could get more regular B1G/B12 games, which would help outsider view of U. Games: 8-9 Games would be played against today’s FCS teams spending more. Was Idaho better than FCS top 15? No. Maybe play 2 P5 Games vs 1? Schedule is higher profile, but not by much. Heck you’re playing Wash this year. So, if I’m going to goto the 85 scholarship level, I’d want to do it in a Conf that is a step up, not a metoo Conf. Joining the MWC makes sense, join a 85 Level WAC . . . I don’t see the value.

    2019 UND Recruiting

    Culhane and Brake have guys on many times that he has relationships with. WV, NE, TN, etc, etc. Yes, I would have asked a UW guy about the ND game, seems kinda silly that he didn’t.

    Two words you will never hear in the same sentence, Wichita St and WAC.
