  1. Where did you get that number from? https://www.inforum.com/sports/college/mcfeely-bison-athletics-guaranteed-big-payday-with-learfield-deal

  3. I there is buy in from enough of these schools, I think they have an antitrust argument and the ncaa would grant a waiver. There isn't an fbs conference in the region and these schools generally fit the profile of the g5 schools. NCAA can't prevent schools from going FBS, effectively, based on geography.
  4. You spelled two wrong dumbass!
  5. Also, isn't this a complete flip flop from only like two years ago, and was ridiculing the pro fbs crowd?
  6. Different topic. If UND were to go FBS, are 15k seats even required? Reading the NCAA bylaws, I don't think they are, as long as the "tickets" are sold. Could just sell 3k "standing room" tickets to a business. Attendance with the tickets is only required if they are sold at less then 1/3rd of the highest ticket cost. Bylaws mention nothing of capacity. ------------------------- Paid Attendance. [FBS] For purposes of computing paid attendance figures, tickets must be sold for at least one-third of the highest regular established ticket price as established prior to the season, regardless of whether they are used for admission. Tickets sold at less than one-third of the highest regular established price may be counted as paid attendance only if they are used for admission. Student attendance may be counted as paid attendance if the student pays at least one-third of the highest regular established ticket price or, if the student actually attends the game and any one of the following conditions applies: (Adopted: 4/28/05 effective 8/1/05) (a) The student paid an athletics fee; (b) The student paid an institutional fee of which a certain portion was allocated to the department of intercollegiate athletics; or (c) The student paid no athletics fee, but the institution allocated to the department of intercollegiate athletics a certain portion of tuition income or general operating funds as the equivalent of a student athletics fee.
  7. Agree with you on that. What are they using the other end zone for? The could sell the other end as standing room only tickets, get some beer tubs that serve that area only, and operate it like the two bars at the ralph with a party/social atmosphere. 150 capacity at say $20 a ticket. Best of both worlds.
  8. What is the plan for the balcony in the other endzone?
  9. This new Peterson Porch sucks for students who are over 21 by the way. No place to watch the game now if they want to sip on a beer.
  10. Curious, would it make a difference to you if they opened up a section for general admission seating?
  11. Biomedical Engineering?! Wow. Good luck to him.. hopefully he gets rich and becomes a major donor!
  12. WIU seems to be doing well despite nearly everyone on their team transferring out. https://www.verbalcommits.com/schools/western-illinois What's the difference between them and us? Sather has been at UND a year longer than their coach, correct? I'm not saying that Sather doesn't deserve more time. Just saying... we seem to be good at finding excuses. https://www.mcdonoughvoice.com/story/sports/2021/10/15/wiu-men-hoops/8466404002/
  13. In other news, the Northern Plains Nitrogen plant, proposed in Grand Forks, will be connected to the Midwest Carbon Express pipeline, if built. A pipeline would be built to connect the plant in GF to the Midwest Carbon Express pipeline near an ethonal plant in Casselton. https://www.agweek.com/business/7345272-Multi-state-carbon-pipeline-adds-Grand-Forks-ND-ammonia-plant-to-plans#:~:text=Northern Plains Nitrogen is developing,has still been seeking investors. Related article from the GFH: Summit Carbon Solutions on Monday afternoon, Jan. 10, sent a press release saying it has formed a new partnership with Northern Plains Nitrogen, a company that has been in talks with Grand Forks developers for the better part of the last decade. In 2013, the announcement of NPN’s potential arrival suggested as many as 135 regular workers could be employed at the plant, which would require well over 1,000 construction workers to build. https://www.grandforksherald.com/news/local/although-no-word-northern-plains-nitrogen-plant-is-imminent-in-grand-forks-press-release-sparks-discussion A representative of Northern Plains Nitrogen says he believes construction on a proposed plant in Grand Forks could begin as early as this year, provided the necessary financing is secured first. Larry Mackie, NPN's chief operating officer, told the Herald on Monday evening, Jan. 11, that as fundraising continues, the company has stayed on top of other planning and organizational aspects — including engineering — in the interim. He said NPN is “absolutely” coming to Grand Forks and “this project will get funded.” In its press release sent Monday, Summit Carbon Solutions noted that the company recently announced “significant milestones in development of its carbon storage facilities in North Dakota, having received state and local permits to collect 3D seismic data and begin drilling stratigraphic test wells, activities which are now underway.” https://www.inforum.com/business/if-financing-arises-work-on-fertilizer-plant-in-grand-forks-could-start-as-early-as-2022-npn-officer-says
