    A guy that we took the DL away from after one year in favor of a volunteer assistant and reassigned to special teams and you hired him as your DC with a first year head coach.

    I'm sure he's a fine coach but it seems like a stretch that he's ready to be a DC.

    UNI could lend them a coach. That would do it.

    Absolute BEST case scenario would be that in 10-15 years you get to a Boise State UCF level and even then, its been proven that they have a 0.0% of ever playing for a national title even if they win every single one of their games for years on end.

    Plus, they are land locked in Siberia recruiting-wise, and have no capability of expanding their stadium.

    If I were them, I’d just keep enjoying the winning.
    Winning shouldn't ever get old. But it's human nature to get spoiled and want more.

    I think they stay FCS. Too big a jump and the geography is too much of a hinderence. It's not impossible they could pull a Boise/App State level of success...but it's a big risk.

    Depends on if your goal is winning national titles at the 2nd highest level of college football or is it something else.

    Despite some of their fans (mainly Lakes) wanting to move up, I think most people associated with NDSU know that if they move up they will never have a chance at a national title again, for a program with as many titles as they have that is what they strive for, knowing that they wouldn't ever get that a chance again is holding them back.

    Also losing Klieman is huge, plain and simple he has won anywhere that he had been, heck his one recruiting class at Loras ending up being the best Loras teacher in like the last 50 years.

    I don’t see the point of going to some garbage conference line Western Kentucky or Appy State did.

    I would rather rack up titles then win the garbage bowl in Detroit.

    Different players, different coaches, but they still find ways to win the big games. I'm envious.

    I'm not aware of any BCS conference expressing interest in them. Not sure NDSU is willing to make the additional investment overall that is necessary. And probably the bottom line is that conferences aren't drooling over the Fargo TV market.

    Conference affiliation has a lot to do with academics. NDSU's 95% acceptance rate may hold them back from finding an appropriate conference.
