    Some people got all bent out of shape after he said this. I don't know why they bother to follow sports if they did.

    Didn't realize Thibs was fired till just now .. wow !!

    As for Rose, the dude grew up west side of Chicago .. he was very pampered and protected all thru HS and 1 scandal filled year in college playing for the pimp that is John Calipari. But Rose is a good guy who just says stupid stuff once in a while. Actually a very humble guy considering how pampered he was his whole life. And he just got snake bit with injuries so Chicago gave up on him ... but the Chicago crowd loved it when he came back and scored 25 on us couple weeks ago.

    #1 in one poll does not mean the NCAA recognizes a team as a champion. UCF isn't on this page: https://www.ncaa.com/news/football/a...onship-history

    You are wrong, as usual. Go to page 115.

    Come on now, a conference invite is not the only problem, but it is a really large component. Comparing NDSU to Notre Dame and Liberty is very disingenuous. Notre Dame has been competing and winning at the top level for a long time, had that national TV contract for many years with NBC (is that still going?), and over the years has definitely tried to market themselves to Catholics nationwide. While Liberty doesn't have the history, they can attempt the national reach from the religious side with Evangelicals, and their finances are enormous (if wikipedia is to be believed on campus enrollment is around the same size as NDSU, but 100,000 online students).

    Let's take a look at other FBS independents:
    Army-Is there any need to attempt comparisons with NDSU
    BYU-Like Liberty and Notre Dame can attempt the national angle for those not affiliated with the school through the Mormon religion.
    UMass- I admittedly do not know much about UMass but as a state school they seem like a reasonable comparison. They moved up with an invite and have looked like a failure anyways.
    NMSU- Also seems a reasonable comparison. They were in the Sun Belt, travel costs seem to have been a problem for them and the conference (something that would be an issue for NDSU in any existing FBS conference). We're eventually asked to leave the conference, and this year had to schedule Liberty twice to fill out their schedule.

    That list looks like 4 schools that are nothing like NDSU and 2 that have similarities, but most would view as FBS failures. The independent route looks like a really bad option.

    oh right, west side used to be hotbed for chicago HS basketball so it just rolled off my tongue/fingers But Simeon HS and Englewood is definitely southside.

    still can't believe Thibs was fired. I have to say .. we liked him a lot in Chicago, and our GM duo (Paxson/Forman) have done horribly since their original group (Rose, Noah, Deng, Gibson, etc) went from 40 wins to 62 wins in Thibs 1st year as coach (2010-11). But then Rose and Noah started getting hurt and Thibs wore himself out with management and eventually with players.

    Sorry for thread drift ....

Attendance may look like what we see at the low end FBS bowl games without the Bison or the Dukes playing.
    we'd bring about 300-500 fans lol
