    Augustana SD discussing moving to D1, possibly joining Pioneer

    Been seeing discussion about this on both SDSUFans and the USD board. Augustana in Sioux Falls reportedly will recieve a 150 million dollar donation from Sanford, not sure if Denny or the company, and will move all sports to D1. I've put this on the FCS discussion board as they'd be going non-scholly for football and joining the Pioneer.

    This is probably just Sioux Falls reporters making this rumor up, they'd love to have a D1 school down there.

    Gross. Don't see how this would benefit any of the Dakotas.

    It's just for the Sioux Falls people who want a D1 team in Sioux Falls.

    .........no.

    NCC 2.0....time for NDSU to go if this happens.

    SDSU better be right by your side. No interest in this happening.

    As for the Sanford rumor, so far, it seems to be just a message board rumor which started at 100 million and has now been raised to 150 million.

    Re: Augustana SD discussing moving to D1, possibly joining Pioneer

    I laid my thoughts out in another thread but Iíll sum it up here.

    The last thing SD, ND, MN, IA, WI, MO, IL and KS need is another D1 school. Football status doesnít matter. This population base is already vastly over saturated

    I think it would be a huge mistake for Augie to go D1. But suddenly there sure is a lot of talk about it.

    Re: Augustana SD discussing moving to D1, possibly joining Pioneer

    SDSU fans seem to think that by denying Augustana an invitation to the Summit, they can keep them out of D-I altogether.

    I would say that if Augustana wants to move up, the Summit won't be their only choice. The WAC would take them in a Fargo minute.

    There is no talk of Augustana moving to D1 on the D2 board. Which would seem to be a more likely place to find information about a possible move by them than on SDSU or USD messageboards.

    I think the other Dakota schools would have about as much say as SLC schools did with HBU and other schools moving up...amiright?
