Sounds easy.

Who gets the Week 7 home games. :huh: :0

Now it gets tricky ... ;) 

Alternate the divisions for the 4 thru 7 games each year, hosting for those doesn't matter much any way.  Have the 1 thru 3 games at Mile High Stadium in Denver as part of Big Sky Playoff Showdown weekend.  Have the games at 11, 3 and 7, with the Championship last.  You would also have quality games for your other playoff contenders to wrap up the regular season.  With six schools, you would have the potential for a good turnout and you would generally know well in advance if your team was going to make the Showdown, so travel plans would be easier.  Denver is a pretty easy flight for all schools as well, and it would draw some exposure to the league, and also be convenient for Root Sports to cover.

If there was a geography split I have always liked the following

Big Sky Conf / Mountain Division

Idaho, Idaho State, Montana, Montana State, North Dakota, Northern Colorado and Weber State

Pacific Coast Conf / Pacific Division

Cal Poly, Eastern Washington, Northern Arizona, Portland State, Sacramento State, Southern Utah and UC Davis.

 

Pretty balanced and it keeps the founding members (Weber, Montana, Montana State, Idaho State, Idaho) together.

That would be a nice division.

Kudos for the original idea!!  Let's get you on the committee.

Looks like there is a proposal to add 12th game to the FCS schedule permanently.  Not sure if the proposal is so conferences can have the option for a "Championship" game or if it's just to get another game on the schedule...

Was the guy at USD with the non-USD backpack and phone in a public place? Were there postings about "no cameras" or such?

If the guy was in a public place doing nothing prohibited he should've told the GA to pound sand.

And the guy should've never given the GA a student ID to prove anything. Go pound some more.

GA didn't do anything wrong though (unless he suggested he had authority he didn't have). Sounds like phone guy is just kind of a coward and crappy spy.

Very interesting development down in Vermillion...

 

Maybe Bill Billicheck sent him to scout potential draft picks. 

Or a USD opponent paid for books to get some Intel...they say, if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. :D

I never said the GA did anything wrong. I agree with your assessment.

You sure you want to start the speculation?  Because I'm sure eventually it will come out which logo was on the back pack, and you will look brilliant or foolish. 

Keep in mind, although it's easy to draw the conclusion that whatever athletic department had something to do with this, there isn't any proof and just as easily could be a coincidence

We know it wasn't the SDSU bunnies. The article said so.

So who would be silly enough to transfer to USD, to see USD as an aspirational school. I'll go WIU.

(Other MVFC schools have other aspirational schools.)

Maybe UND should close their practices. Maybe they they would have gained more than 61 yards last year...

The student likely had a bizon backpack.

....says the NDSU fan that is basically admitting guilt. Are you saying NDSU is the only school in the MVFC?
