Right now, SDSU and NDSU are in the FCS quarterfinals. After they are through their will be more news.

Sam Houston St is also in the quarters, which is holding up WAC expansion news.

Cool, the time frame has moved up. I can't wait. Hopefully the big announcement will wait until after SDSU and NDSU play for an FCS title in January.

Kind of off topic here, but it's to bad they couldn't change the location of the game if that were to happen. I could see 35k or more showing up for that game. It would be awesome.

Because by gawd some way, some how, UND is going to be FBS.

As we will be gifted an FBS stadium.

UND is the only common denominator in the new Great Northern, as we have shared conferences with every member.

Right, because the world revolves around Grand Forks. Those kids in Montana are doing somersaults at the prospect of trading trips to California, Arizona, Oregon, etc for winter in the Dakotas.

On the contrary, Grand ForksIan's know It isn't the center of the world, but are grateful and gracious in remembering what it brought into their lives.

The NCAA takes bids. It will be in Texas for a long time. But yes, move the game to Minneapolis and you would fill the new Gopher stadium. Although, in January that could be a pretty cold game.

SDSU has to go through James Madison (and New Hampshire). I'd put the odds at less then 50% that the game happens.

Western Illinois is playing both Montana and Montana State this year.

Clearly Western Illinois is now a part of the Summit League transforming into the Great North Conference now.

Know this is a joke post, but Montana scheduled a Home and Away series because their fans are tired of the Savannah St and Valpo out of conference games. W Ill has lost their last two fb coaches for bailing to richer institutions. Things are not well in Macomb, although their fb program has been the shining star of their athletic.

Western Illinois needs the MVFC but will chose the OVC because of their atrocious financials.

So when Montana and MSU play Dakota schools OOC, it's a harbinger of the Summit's apotheosis into the FBS Great Northern Conference. But when they play Summit LEague member Western Illinois, it's just an OOC game with no greater significance.

Alrighty then.
