The Bama folks have been walking around like They did when Obama won the presidential election. Heads down and not talking.  :thefan: :lmao:

Maybe you didn't comprehend what I was saying. All of the states resources go to them. They don't have a professional team. The whole state supports them. They are the biggest show in town. Who else in the state are they competing with? All of the big rich folks in North Dakota put their money into NDSU.

:tongue2:
Nothing to brag about really. They are the only show in town. There are no University of Alabama and Auburn's to recruit against. No UAB, Troy St, University of South AL. Not to make the other 5 FCS schools and 6 D2 schools we have to compete against for recruitment. Just saying.....

AH, THAT WOULD BE THE NORTH DAKATO STATE BISON.   ::)

No that's the 7 time FCS champ NDSU. Their fans want to see good games and are getting bored with them dominating everyone. Its a wild problem to have

7 out the last 8 FCS national titles ain't nothing to brag about?????

Oh.   I didn’t understand.  Forgive me Suga.   :kisses: You’re right.  NDSU is to North Dakota what Bama is to Alabama, except they don’t have Auburn, Troy, Jacksonville State etc.  I understand completely now.   

I was thinking recruiting and not money.  You’re right.  They get all the money.   Even Bama has to compete with Auburn a lil bit. 

Off topic, I was at the casino in Wetumpka last Saturday while the game was on, and baby it was intense in that mug.   The Auburn folks were dancing their behinds off and those Bama fans were sad as hell.  I loved it!  😂😂😂😂

Not to mention they are an FBS team posing as a FCS team, and everybody knows it.

No everybody don't know it. The rules are all that define what division you participate in. Sure some have more money, but that's true on all levels and all conferences. They have the same number of scholarships and coaches as everyone else at their level.

Their point is that there are no BCS schools in ND, so the boosters that would normally donate to the major BCS school
In the state give it to NDSU.  Their donations and facilities (while not on par with Alabama ) are probably comparable to a lot ofMountain West schools, hence they are a BCS school masquerading as a FCS school.   

I was just considering recruiting initially, but when I put money in the equation it makes sense. 

I’d like to see how much they spend in comparison to other FCS schools and in comparison to non P5 schools.  That would probably tell the story.

Exactly! Probably even a top 50 FBS team. I suspect their fans are getting bored. Lol, FBS teams will no longer schedule them.

The population of North Dakota is 760,077 compared to 4,888,000 in Alabama. That's about half the size of metro Birmingham. They have the University of North Dakota and two DII schools to compete against for talent. Its not like the states located around them are large either. Its cold as heck in North Dakota and their are very few brothers to pick from.

They recruit nationwide

They aren't the only FCS school in the state.  Using your logic Montana or Montana State should be just as good. 

Also, the NDSU football coach makes a little less than the school president. Our FCS schools would never do that. 

Make no mistake.  NDSU is FCS.  They aren't moving up. 
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

Is it possible that FCS Playoff attendance is down across the board?

It's a good thing you folks agreed to the Leg...I mean, Celebration Bowl.

I see where you’re going and I get it, but they recruit all over the country.  It’s not exactly easy to convince a kid to play in North Dakota - the championship allure gets them there and they aren’t winning with kids for North Dakota and the Pacific - their kids come from FL, GA, TX, MO, IL, WI etc. 

No kids from AL though.  The state of AL does a good job of keeping their kids in house and poaching kids from GA.

It’s just their time.   GA Southern was dominant at one time, Troy was dominant at one time, UNA was dominant when they were DII - it’s just NDSU’s time.   

Others will get their shot soon.   GA Southern is trying to mount a comeback.  We will see how it goes.
Georgia Southern isn't FCS anymore, they are FBS now. They play in the Sun Belt Conference.

Well damn where have I been?   I had no clue.  None at all.

When did they do that?

Never mind I just looked it up.  2013?   Wow. Tells you how long it’s been since I followed GA Southern - visited in 2010 when one of my kids was being recruited there and picked up
Interest again because another one of my “nephews” just committed to them and I’ll probably be checking out a few of their games. 
   

No wonder they keep getting mollywopped.

Folks,losers always have excuses. They play by the rules... and they win. We're always wanting to dummy thing's down instead of bringing ourselves up. Its ok when we beat up on poorer, smaller HBCUs. We actually brag about it.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
