    Four reasons NDSU should stay FCS

    The NCAA is making a small fortune charging a 20% fee on its ticket exchange.

    The Allen, Plano, and Frisco hotel industry is cashing in on the normally slow post New Years period.

    The rest of the FCS community can make firms plans for the first weekend in January without worrying about unexpected championship celebrations.

    It gives AGS members something to rehash when there is nothing else to discuss on the message board.

    It's the same reason Mount Union and Mary Hardin-Baylor stay in Division III: it works for them.

    FWIW, the MHB stadium is better than a lot of I-AA facilities:

    A little off topic, but I want to get this straight...

    The fans' pronunciation of bison is byes' -en. (right?)
    I ask because I heard a TV sports reporter pronouncing it byes-ON.

    Graduating from Buffalo Lake High school, we always pronounced it byes'-en. Or by-zen.

    That is a great question. Until there is a conference that they would fit into I don't know why there would. And that won't happen unless there is a huge realignment.

    Exactly! Also Fargo is not a huge media market that other conferences want to get into like the Big10 going after Rutgers and Marand.

    Even if the MWC or MAC invited NDSU I don't think they should go because no G5 has a chance to win a National Championship under the current 4 team playoff system.

    Someday when the P5 breaks away I would support NDSU joining the rest of the G5 and being in the 2nd tier of football.
