  1. It's all about money. St Thomas will win if they get a Twin Cities crowd. Pretty straigth forward.
  2. Nice to have these numbers handy. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/basketball/2410651-UND-ramping-up-investment-in-mens-basketball
  3. The Fargo Forum confirmed the UND offers to the Hurlburt twins. https://www.inforum.com/sports/2710783-Enderlins-Hurlburt-brothers-pick-up-UND-scholarship-offer
  4. Surely they need a bigger sized arena. Not saying it can't happen either.
  5. Akron, for financial and other reasons, needs to move down to DII. But yet is contracts with FBS schools yield millions, as with Auburn fb and Ohio St fb or with the MAC. https://www.beaconjournal.com/sports/20200711/university-of-akron-suggested-change-in-division-status-could-prove-expensive-proposition?rssfeed=true
  6. What if:. the FCS season moves to spring? Most of FCS would probably go for it. They'd be more likihood that FCS actually gets a big TV contract. Schools that would not have it: The Montana's, SDSU, Weber St, and they work have to stay fall. The MVFC would be much more local climate dependent. Should UND go east or west.? .
  7. A spring FCS schedule. Don't imagine that would go at SDSU.
  8. Stanford drops 11 sports. https://mobile.twitter.com/ByPatForde/status/1280912136571682817?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1280912136571682817|twgr^&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fcsnbbs.com%2Fthread-902458.html
  9. Rumors that the Big 12 will expand by 4 schools: 10). Ciccinnati - helps cement WVU 11). Memphis - helps center the conference 12) Houston - helps protect the conference 13). BYU - gives it a western edge Boise St might be 14 The AAC looses three but takes Rice from CUSA
  10. UND would get the same deal as Notre Dame, as ND has to sell the B1G home games and doesn't make anything direct from the league. But with a new president, any thing is possible.
  11. The MEaC is closer to stable as Del ST will remain. https://delawarestatenews.net/sport/delstate-staying-in-meac/
  12. The almost immediately Grab Mankato and Bowling Green. Small chance that they substitute St Thomas for the MSP market. Doubt the whole premise falls into place.
  13. Denver adds women's triathlon. https://denverpioneers.com/news/2020/7/1/athletics-denver-receives-emerging-sport-grant-to-add-womens-triathlon.aspx Denver gets a grant to add women's triathlon. Second Summit school after USD.
  14. The Big South wants to get to 12 teams and then split, so six would go to the ASun and then have six with the Big South and 2 AQ's. The MEAC would likely be nonfb. The ASun FB league: Kennesaw St UNA NCAT Jacksonville St - to be added Howard - to be added E Kentucky - to be added This whole league could advance to FBS down the road if it got JMU, Delaware and Stony Brook.
  15. Hockey could be the easiest to show parity with the Gophers.
  16. Bethune Cookman joins the SWAC. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sports.yahoo.com/amphtml/bethune-cookman-join-swac-2021-230923918--ncaaf.html So the MEAC is down to six FCS but Del St is talking NEC and NCCentral may be also talking to Big South.
  17. The club team at UMaryland-Baltimore County (UMBC) is funded two thirds by the school. Didn't know that was possible. UMBC is the southernmost America East school, which has a lot of Hockey schools. Imagine the LIU wants AEC as its future conference, and new member NJIT, which was added as a travel partner for UMBC, might want hockey too. The NEC is mostly small but private schools and LIU isnt small. https://www.ncsasports.org/athletic-scholarships/mens-ice-hockey/maryland/university-of-maryland--baltimore-county
  18. Most of the MEAC football is either gone or talking to another league, as Delaware St is talking to the NEC. which RMU just left The poorest endowed schools like Md-Eastern Shore, Coppin St, and Morgan St are left, but they don't have football. The one wealthy school, Howard, with almost a billion in endowment, can maybe forms it's own FBS league with the CAA. The ASun attempted to get it's own FBS or FCS league but that fell through when it never announced the eight more required teams and NJIT left for America East. The ball is in the MEACs or CAA's court. Chicago St may team up with the Maryland MEACs to stay alive.
  19. Target, Dayton's, JCP, and Dayton-Hudson each owned the parcel they originally sat on. Sears later. There weren't many big landholders.
  20. Former Minn coach Lucia will likely become the CCHA commisioner. Lucia was wants St Thomas in it's league. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mankatofreepress.com/sports/local_sports/lucia-named-ccha-commissioner/article_9ead7bd8-b0b8-11ea-9445-3bbeb33e9b91.amp.html
  21. Saw that former Red River player Jordan Polynice signed with Chicago State afte being with two JC teams. Had be ever made waves with UND?
  22. Ther are rumors about Youngstown St and Wright St dropping down a level or becoming branch campuses. Youngstown St becoming a branch of Akron U, and Wright St becoming a branch of Miami U. Akron has already dropped the number of its majors and colleges. If both those happen, the Horizon drops to the ten schools.
  23. Seemed Wheelock needed prayer. https://www.google.com/amp/s/northdakota365.wordpress.com/2016/10/31/theres-a-reason-for-ghostly-wheelock/amp/
  24. The writer has a below IQ Level much as you do. So NDSU is building state of the art indoor practice faciiities practice with no intention of moving up? This is their chance to leave UND in the dust permanently. This ismost NDSU fans dream. You don't have much aspirations do you?
