    Well, I left SDSU off because we wouldn't play ourselves. I said from the SDSU perspective. Meaning, as SDSU plays other conference teams, the hardest places SDSU plays would be...etc.

    In my opinion, tough places to play can be relative. For example, USD is a tough place to play for SDSU. The environment for USD-SDSU game can be much more intense than USD hosting Indiana State.

    Gotcha, the rest of the homers on the site were listing their own team or city in the ratings, usually placing them at the toughest place to play.

    Yeah I think that's bull****. I think opposing fans should be the judge on whether it is tough to play at your team's stadium or not.

    Re: Toughest place to play in your conference?

    we tend to get up and prepare well for NDSU and UNI games .. even if we lost the game. Of the perennial tough teams, maybe SDSU we have toughest time playing up to our level. But we tend to have more issues playing away games against lesser teams in fron of smaller crowds ... so it depends on the year and team.

    That and playing EIU is very reminscent of Bears-Packers in 1980's. Other than 2013 when EIU was very good .. it doesn't matter whether we are favored by 7 pt 21 pts .. it is always an unusually tough ugly game. In 2011, we were 21 points better .. they beat us. Even in 2014 at home, we beat them easily, but it was ugly. But this is home or away grudge match issue.

    p.s. I know EIU is OVC but we play them every year going on 110 years.

    UND is better now but I assume the next game in '19 will be closer.

    Bubba is copying NDSU's style on offense, or trying to. Fullback and TE sets and running the ball with play action. He will always run a 3-4 on defense or version of it.

    Too bad the teams quit playing in '03 because the Bison would be on a 13 game win streak.......

    I'm interested to see what the other OVC posters think then.

I guess you should expect it from a career high school coach. Who btw, underachieved in high school. What a loser.

    They think they are with the big boys now that they are leaving the Big Fluffy.

    The 90's and early 2000's I was away keeping America safe, and I really didn't follow NDSU since info was hard to come by in ****hole 4th world countries, but I guess that was the heydey of UND (whatever they call themselves) football. Were they even popular in Grand Forks when they won or were competing for Div2 championships? What kind of attendance figures did they get in those days? I vaguely recall the city being under water sometime in there, but I completely lost the bubble. I didn't really start paying attention again when I heard NDSU was moving up, and I remember the Big Fluffy didn't want NDSU and SDSU, probably because they were scared.

    Nah, you can thank former Montana State employee Doug Foolerton for that.
