Default Fargo Media Explodes over NDSU's arrogance

NDSU is cutting off outlets from covering Bison athletics unless they’ve paid a media rights ramsom. As the links below show, many up north now think NDSU has gotten too big for their britches.

McFeely's column is hilarious - a must-read.

I suppose it is only a matter of time before the lawyers come after us for each time Lakes invokes the vaunted Brand here as well.

The hilarious thing is that they are so concerned with their "brand", yet things like this have happened in the recent past:

Even the NCAA doesn't seem to know who they are, let alone anyone outside the midwest.

This is crazy.

What does it mean for the media of visiting teams?

From what I've seen, NDSU isn't totally cutting off non rights-holding media from reporting on NDSU events, there are just limits on how much footage and stuff they can broadcast.

Are we sure the "brains" in the Hillary Clinton campaign aren't also running NDSU? All this is is an attempt to totally control the message, and limit access to friendly media. College sports media has always been way more of a lap dog, kiss a$$ culture than any pro sport. The NDSU dictators must have thought they could just up the game and kill off any negative publicity about their teams, law violations by the players and coaches, etc.

Sure about that? It's a total control the image, thought police kind of move. Fortunately, NDSU was shamed out of it, but the fact that they'd even consider it is total BS. Your rights paying media are almost always a bunch of a$$ kissers in college sports.

That's how we feel when you throw your repeatedly horrendous attempts at sarcasm into threads.

All this over athletic media rights?

Of course, the forum was part of a losing proposal to hold the media rights, now the center of this entire self inflicted wound. How bout a nice salt lick with that editorial?

The Fargo NBC affiliate (who also has the broadcast rights for NDSU Bison Football) led their 10 PM show last night with a rant bashing their competition in going after the restrictive media rules first proposed by NDSU Athletics. I need to speak my peace here. I have been an FCS fan before there was even an FCS. I find it a more pure form of collegiate football with an exciting playoff system. This morning, I mentioned to a Bison faithful that the local media infighting and the continuous chest thumping from Bison fans is contaminating the FCS. I mentioned if Fargo was Bloomington, IL, the Bison would be no big thing and that 80% of their bandwagon fans would be jumping on the train of the nearest winning Big 10 program be it Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin or even Iowa. I think it's time for NDSU fans to get humbled and go BIG with the FBS. It's starting to get nuts up here.

Indeed. And can you imagine how nuts it will be after the Bison win in Iowa City . . .







and how nuts it will be after the Bison lose in Cedar Falls . . .









and when the Bison lose again in Cedar Falls in December (or Frisco in January)!
