    I'm not bored yet...already making plans for next year. I can tell you though that I would be bored if the best NDSU could do is some throw away bowl in Detroilet.

    I'd be saying the same thing if I was a Holy Cross fan too. WTF is the point of being D1 if your going to half ass it. You might as well go NAIA at this point.

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

    Interesting points being made here. There are obvious reasons NDSU isn't pursuing FBS.

    And let me just say that, from all accounts, the highlight of UNA's season was going up and playing in the Fargodome. The "Alabama" of FCS. Glad the Bison scheduled my alma mater to show them how it's done up there. But, just the reference to Alabama in air quotes would bug me after a certain point.

    NE and Bama are playing at the top classification of their leagues and do have competition every single year. The Pats play in a usually weak division but Bama is in the toughest division in the toughest conference in college football. So, as a Bama and Patriots fan (of which I have been for both just as long as I've supported the Lions - 1985), I can also see that it would frustrate me to know that my team could compete with the big boys but were held back from doing so.

    Also, we know that a conference invite isn't the problem. Liberty got a waiver and ND has made the CFP multiples times now with an Indy schedule. All other NDSU sports already have a home at the top level of the NCAA.

    But, I seriously doubt anything will come of such chatter. Good season NDSU!
    ROAR LIONS!

    I think most of you guys that want NDSU to move up and are saying that the FCS is boring are confusing the BORING with an abhorrence towards NDSU or maybe jealousy.

    When does this become the NDSU theme song? After their 8th title? 9th title? 12th? 15th?

    Are we saying that the UCF team that got beat in their meaningless bowl game is better than NDSU? Frost started as an assistant at Northern Iowa.

    That is the the actual answer. The problem is, the Goofers, made it clear there is not enough "blue-chips" in North Dakota/Minnesota compared to Florida and Texas and so Row-The-Boat U would rather miss out on legit P5 players who don't have that #SouthernSpeed compared to farm boys, who after spending 1 year in an S&C program get to that desired weight/goal and then produce ungodly results on the field. The thing is, NDSU takes a 4.6, 6-1, 200 LB from rural ND/MN/SD/NE/IA/WI and turns him into a 6-1, 225 freak of nature. Use that example for any position where they might be .2 seconds too slow, 2 inches too short, and/or 20-25 pounds too light and bam, there you go, that is how they miss out on a P5 athlete.
    Speaking of, what an asset the Bison have in S&C Coach (or whatever his title is now after his promotion) Jim Kramer. Entire classes have come through the program, head coaches have come and gone, and assistants have shuffled in and out, but Kramer is the rock that the program is built on. In the past 8 years, you can name the number of times the Bison have been physically outmanned on the field on a single hand, FCS and FBS combined, with a couple fingers to spare.

    Hopefully that role change = pay raise. I know Teammakers can't fund him, but if he were to ever leave, I only hope Ryan Napoli comes home.
