    Yes. But he makes the same stupid hypocritical arguments you here from the IVY.
    Opportunity is unattainable for most people because it is disguised as hard work!!

    Sader is stuck in the 1980s

    That's the embarrassing part of it

    If they are that good, why don't we see them in the playoffs?

    Focus on the best players in your approximate region of the country or you let FCS schools become more powerful than you because you are overlooking players that would be going to the ACC or Big 10 east if they just lived in a different state.
    Nah northern teams are down here a ton...

    I was really hoping for (and quite frankly, expecting) a more intelligent response to my statement above. No worries though. I started a poll in another thread to validate your statement. Cheers!

    Also, please don't use payout or national exposure as an argument, as the cost to be FBS will also be higher, especially one as geographically isolated as NDSU.
    Just about every good high school player dreams about playing and winning the College Football Playoff Championship (and also the Super Bowl).

    I still loosely follow App State and Georgia Southern. Both groups of fans constantly complained that they had already accomplished everything there was to accomplish in FCS. This was a little strange since is has been a long time since GSU's last national championship. After moving to the Belch and finding that it was no more competitive than the SoCon, they bragged about their bowl games. After playing a few bowl games in Montgomery and other tourist meccas, they are now starting to realize that they have hit the G5 glass ceiling and the bowl games are less exciting.

    Some people will never be satisfied.

    For me, the regular season is real football, and the playoffs are just lagniappe. I attend the games when I can, and purchase tickets to home games even if can't go just to support the school. But, in the end, I would rather tailgate with family and friends while playing rivals than try to move up a ladder where entry at the top will never be allowed.

    As for payout and national exposure, unless you are Clemson or Alabama, the payout isn't that big and national exposure not really that valuable.

    Re: Boring.....just go FBS already

    Was doing some research on a project and ran across this. Made me chuckle.


    After the 1986 D2 title game:

    "I wish to hell they would get out of Division II," said South Dakota head coach Dave Triplett following the game. "They can go wherever they want."

    Courtesy of Massey, your 1986 NDSU Bison results. And to show how bad Massey ranking is/was at formulating their rankings across divisions that don't play each other ... NDSU was 13-0 playing D-II with average score of 42 - 7 against the 176th ranked SOS, this got them a #29 ranking .... slightly skewed I would say. Also note, the number of teams they played that are now FCS ... USD, SDSU, UND, UNC ... and USD played them toughest twice that year including the D-II Natty. Also note, they played 2 D-II teams that were top 100 teams on way to Natty.
