star2city Posted October 16, 2002 Share Posted October 16, 2002 The SDSU Div. I decision may be delayed. An article in the October 14th, (2002) Brookings Register quoted Fred Oien as follows: Oien believes that SDSU needs to made a decision, one way or another, about a move to DI, by September of next year.That would seem to imply that a conference deal with the Mid-Continent and NDSU is still possible for 2004-2005, leaving them both as football independents. SDSU's CSL market analysis makes heavy mention of the Mid-Continent. In response to a question about the possibility of State going DI as an independent, Oien stated emphatically that the university would not make the move unless they had secured a position in a conference. Without that, he said, scheduling would be too difficult. The NDSU athletic department must be pulling out whatever hair they have left over this situation. SDSU is their last hope of any reasonable travel partner within the Mid-Continent (or much less likely, the Big Sky).
