The guys close to the Griz program were told they were resting a bunch of players when we took them to the wire in the Alerus.  Griz don't respect our program.....

They don't respect a single FCS program. They think they're the best; they even criticized NDSU's program after they lost to them in the playoffs.

I will probably be taken as a smart ass here, but I don't mean it that way...

You guys should start a series with MSU.  It should be called the "BRAWL OF THE PRAIRIE" - much more permanent than any boom.  The trophy should be a large bronze meadow muffin, an apt counterpoint to the pile o'!@#$ trophy great divide between MSU & UM.  This is where that smart ass factor comes into play, but really, there can be a competitive factor and a sense of humor at the same time - have you looked at the UM/MSU trophy !?

On other notes, while counting your 2016 chickens, watch out for Cal Poly.  And, while some UM fans feel you guys play dirty, I think that is a hangover from what ZooTowners felt were some cheap shots a number of years ago.  The Griz fans I hang out with see you guys as a program on the rise.

I want to see a Big Sky with a high level of play across the board, and one of us being the division champs every year.

Great Divide Trophy [ edit ]

This thing? Good lord! Whose bright idea was to design this!

I do like the idea of a rivalry with MSU. I suppose it is 2 hours closer than UM. Thank you for taking an objective approach in regard to our players being dirty. I may have missed something but it appeared to me that nothing dirty was done against UM, or any other teams for that matter. Also, I am fairly certain our new staff will not tolerate that kind of play.

Next year I am happy we play Poly at the Alerus as they should be a decent team. Even though we don't play UM next year I would say there is a good chance we would meet in the playoffs if we both make the field. Hopefully they do away with regionalization.

Could be an oar with the wins on each side. 

Let's roll with this.

Historically, don't these things start with frays?

The Montana State half of the trophy could be Prokup crying at the podium.  And you could take it 2 ways 1) crying after a loss to UND 2) saying farewell to his teammates.  (we need to start a fray, right)

Well, if we are going to go with the Lewis and Clark idea, I guess we can play for an over sized replica coin again!!!

Loving this idea. 

And didn't we have this same thread last year?

Geographically speaking, this would be a great addition for an every year bout with MSU.. But from my perspective, I have the feeling that Portland St. has become a pretty intense and physical game. If we just had a little spark to send it over the top :devil:
