Enjoy it! You won't see that kind of success in the Summit & MVFC. 03-thumbsup

The way NDSU has stunk up the courts the last month and Saturday, NDSU as a 2 seed was a joke. Their vb and wbb are now barely NAIA level. But technically, NDSU qualified for a quadfecta with fb, mbb, w soccer, and W softball, if you really dig. Those women's sports probably get more attendance than wbb, but they are free admission.

USD has been the bb school on the rise. Omaha looks like it has weapons too. Those were the traditional bb teams UND had to beat in DII, as well as SDSU and Mankato. Prior to our new hockey arena, we weren't a one sport school. Its nice to get back to that.

I didn't say anything about NDSU. But you feel free to continue digging at it with every post. Just proves UND should've always been with NDSU from 2003.

Both the South Dakota schools, especially USD, have made great strides. The Dakota 4 are a tough block, and give a lot of opportunities to Dakotas, Minn, and Wisc athletes who get overlooked by the Big Ten, and more and more the northern part of the old Big 8 areas as well.

A professor I worked for told me that when he was a student at the University of Utah (which I think was sometime in the 1970's), that the Utes had been regular season champions in those four sports as well.

Looked up that year on wiki and tOSU didn't win baseball that year, but they did win men's volleyball in 2007 in their eastern conference and B1G men's gymnastics in both 2006 and 2007. But those seem hardly like the fourth revenue sports for the BIG. A trifecta in mbb, wbb, and fb is extremely impressive, nevertheless.

What has USD made great strides in that the other South Dakota school has not?

This is the first year they have finished above .500 in Men's BB since joining the league. And they still can't get by SDSU when it counts. SDSU's Men's and Women's basketball programs, along with NDSU in Men's are the elite programs in the league. The USD Women's BB has been solid but when push comes to shove, it is still SDSU winning the big games and it is still SDSU who have the national reputation.

I think USD has improved and they were a good addition but I don't see them as a model school. I think UND will jump them pretty quickly in most sports. I'm also pretty sure SDSU has won the President's all sports cup most years we have been eligible.

As for UND's accomplishments in the BSC. It is one reason I'm happy they are coming over to the Summit. The league is solid and bringing on UND make it better. USD were a bottom feeder when they arrived, UND will not be.

I was thinking along the lines of new facilities, improving campus enrollment, things like that. USD was way behind the other three, not that long ago.

I was in no way digging SDSU athletics, come on. SDSU obviously has made huge improvements too. That's why I said both. But USD was just so far down.

As an Aggie this pains me to post it, but I had to look up some of our rivals, and this was the closest I could find.

1995-1996, final year of Southwest Conference:
Longhorns Volleyball - 28-7, 10-0 in conference
Longhorns Football - 10-2-1, 7-0 in conference
Longhorns Men's Basketball - 21-10, 10-4 in conference (3rd place) - however won regular season and conference tourney previous year
Longhorns Women's Basketball - 21-9, 13-1 in conference (tied regular season)
Longhorns Baseball - 39-24, 17-7 in conference (regular season champion)

In 1990 Georgia Southern won the Div I-AA National Championship in Football, made a College World Series appearance and won the conference in baseball and if I remember correctly won like 25 games and the regular season conference title in Men's Basketball.

Congrats on the banner year in the Big Sky!

As I mentioned before to NoDak, I think you'll find it much harder to achieve the same level of success in those four sports in the Summit and MVFC.
