    Re: Four reasons NDSU should stay FCS

    Now that I think of it, there's a big difference between Georgia Southern, App State and other former FCS schools going FBS than NDSU and that's local interest. NDSU is top dog in North Dakota. GSU/App were not in GA/NC. I can see why they wanted more recognition but NDSU didn't.

    Still, I think NDSU overestimates the risk of going FBS. Marshall, App State, and Georgia Southern are collectively 18-2 in bowl games and have multiple conference championships. UMass is an example of a program that moved up without a blue print, but let's be real, NDSU has more in common with Marshall/App/GSU than UMass. Also, I know Marshall may be a controversial example, but if you take out 4 years of institutional mismanagement out of a coach they should have fired after 2 years, Marshall has been a pretty solid program.

    Another reason, just to piss people off.

    Seriously though why would we want to spend a **** ton more money for marginal gains in exposure. The ROI just doesn't pencil out right now.

    Re: Four reasons NDSU should stay FCS

    Unless NDSU can get into a P5 conference why would they leave? Hell the 1FCS, DII or DIII NC and playoff's is better than playing in the #IDGAFTAMPONBOWL.com bowl LOL!!

    Maybe EWU or SDSU or MSU will challenge them next year. Probably not though.

    And this is still coming from a house that watches a lot of Pitt and Georgia Tech football, so we know all about the pitfalls of meaningless bowls and ****ty Sun Belt games.

    With G5 conferences you might get to host a conference championship game and then play in a lower-tier bowl game. In the FCS you can host up to 3 playoff games.

    Just listen to people STILL pronounce Gonzaga wrong and you'll realize it takes more than 8 years to get people to know how to say your team's name. Even though they're often referred to as the Zags, they're still called Gonz(ah)ga by 50% of media. So, just assume you'll always be called the Bye-sen by some people!

    I guess when your aunt has worked for the Zags since you were born (me that is), you just know how to pronounce it properly, even if she is a Griz fan at heart. (Grew up in Anaconda and went to UM).

    NDSU, YSU and Montana are tied for second most Championship Game appearances, at 7. Should YSU and Montana move up too?
