    Totally, disaster waiting to happen. Especially once they are packed to the gills and all those hooligans jumping around.
    Anyone know if that huge hole was already in the stadium??

    What is funny? Politicians aren't going to meddle with NDSU football or UND hockey for that matter, especially over something as trivial as conference realignment.

    Makes me even more glad the US decided to boycott this World Cup.

    LOL, yea, the USA will probably "boycott" the event when it is in the USA as well.

    Actually US should be good to very good then, we have one of the best young players in the world. If you don't know who Christian Pulisic is, worth 5 minutes of your time on YouTube

    Yup. Thankfully we appear to have moved on from the previous generation of players who were old and holding the NT back at the end I think.

    Friendly or not the USMT drew - and lead for much of it - WC favorite France, in France. Did so while starting 10 players who had made less than 10 national team appearances. Did so against a French team that played its full arsenal of players - Lloris, Kante, Mendi, Pogba, Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud, Fekir, Dembele, Lemar - in France.

    The USMNT had an average age of like 20 out there. In 8 years. Assuming they find a manager that doesn’t run a **** system (asking apt of US soccer I realize) there’s going to be a ton of talent.

    Looks like Augie is serious about this.
    I know this isn’t a move for their football team but it raises the question about what happens to it, drop it, go Pioneer or in the most unlikely scenario, join the MVFC?
    Also I don’t know if they’d get a Summit invite, I doubt all 4 Dakotas will sign off on this and let them in, so then where do they go? The WAC? Travel would be a huge pain.
    Also the Wrestling program would be at a crossroads, they won’t follow SDSU or NDSU into the Big 12, it’s just not happening, and the WAC doesn’t sponsor wrestling.
    Lots of holes to them moving up, I can see them being successful though in Basketball and especially Baseball after that D2 title this year.
