    If I had to guess, I would believe 3/4 a scholarship = 3/4 FCOA.

    not that you asked about ISUr .. but Spack has gradually gone more and more to 3/4 scholllies for most players, then works with families to make up difference with needs based schollies and grades based money. I don't know the numbers, but I believe most of our kids are 3/4 schollies. I am guessing the top end players probably get full schollies if the money can't be made up elsewhere. Otherwise, he tries to get families to buy into his model to build the roster. He seems to think it works in most situations .. certainly, not all.

    And how many Div 1 programs in North Dakota compared to Louisiana?? Got to add that to the perspective.

    4 - Keep a gap between you and the competition because there are only a handful of programs that can build and maintain much of anything, and they either have trouble maintaining continuity, have endless setbacks thanks to scandals, or chase a bunch of evolutionary football dead ends.
    This is essentially it.

    I fully realize that.My point is if you can afford 85 full rides why not allow it? Its stupid to split schollies up if you dont have to.
    Opportunity is unattainable for most people because it is disguised as hard work!!

    NDSU's football camps are a big factor.

    Can any long-time fans fill me in on the last years of D2 and what happened? In the Bison's last 8 years of D2/NCC play, they only went to the playoffs twice.

    What was up from 1996-2003? Any insight?
    UND happened. They were our bitch.
