    Exclamation Is the State of North Dakota really this financially broke?!?

    7 titles in 8 years and still can't muster enough money to come and compete with like minded FBS state schools, I don't even see any talk of it.

    Is the state of North Dakota just financially broke or what?

    Its kinda sad at this point really

    No political will to invest in a new stadium. More than that, no FBS conference to go to. Bring back the WAC.

    We donít need a new stadium, but you nailed it with the conference.

    We have the money and the will but without an invite itís just an endless debate we have online.

    This is the real reason. Unless NDSU wants to go the liberty route and try to bust the ncaaís balls for an independent FBS acceptance, then they require an invite to a conference.

    No G5 AD in the Mac, sun belt or cusa are stupid enough to throw NDSU a bone and let them come in and immediately and permanently dominate their conference at the detriment of their already mediocre program.

    What incentive do they have to consider ndsu?

    I bet more people nationwide are watching this game currently than were watching the New Orleans Bowl for what its worth.

    If I am a KSU fan, I am loving what I am seeing with the calls Messingham makes and the way Klieman controls the defense.

    Too far west for the MAC.

    Too far east for the MWC.

    Too far north for the Big 12 or Sunbelt.

    WAC doesn't have football.

    No reason to build another bigger dome.

    Big XII isn't because of geography, it's because they don't have a large enough media market.

    Geographically, they could do Big 12.
    But the Big 12 isn't going to extend an invite to an FCS team that doesn't add anything in other sports.

    Outside of wrestling being in the Big XII and a consistent T25 team as well as softball being a perennial power house...
