    5 national championships and 5 wins against the P5...they have had dominant FCS teams before but none that play with and beat the big boys like NDSU...they had a ESPN gameday there...an FCS...hosting ESPN gameday.

    Bc there was no marquee match up amongst P5's that weekend. Wanna bet gameday doesn't go back to Fargo now that they lost?

    Imagine this....

    We win the SBC and get in the G5 playoffs as a #8 seed.

    SBC Conference Champ Game - @ App St
    Round 1 - Travel to #1 W. Michigan
    Round 2 - Travel to #4 Boise St
    Championship Game - Somewhere in Florida

    Do we really have enough fans across the country to support our team through this. Also how many of us would travel to all 4 sites?

    It would also take at least $150k per trip to travel the team and it's staff. So we are $500k out of pocket before we play for the title. No one will underwrite the travel cost for these teams...so the school would have to pay!

    I'll pass on the G5 playoffs and stick with a bowl opportunity.

    Wasn't trying to argue with you, they were hyped big time because not only were they winning championships(which hardly anyone watches) but they were beating P5's every year (games people actually watch) if they would have just won the titles and got throttled by P5's like most FCS, I don't think as much hype would have been on them...certainly not a gameday.

    We go undefeated, we need extra help from AAC/MWC/MAC in terms of at least 2-3 loses from their best team.
    Realistically, a great season we go 11-1 or 10-2 depending on the number of SEC teams on schedule.
    So with that, and this current stacked system, this is the ceiling! 11-1 and we in NOLA bowl or Camellia bowl.

    They lost in the semi's. It's not like they lost before a deep playoff run. James Madison this year would have won the Sunbelt.

    Nothing to do with my point, no FCS has ever been hyped like they have...there have been
    Dominant FCS teams before but none had 5 years with national titles and 5 straight years with P5 wins...they won when people were actually watching...that's how they got all the hype.

    You think a 1 loss western mich team goes before an undefeated SBC team? I think an undefeated Troy or app goes before an undefeated western this year. Obviously no way of knowing either way, but it's what I believe.

    Who collects a bigger check for a guarantee game? There's your brand worth right there

    An undefeated W. Mich team had 3 teams breathing down their necks. Had Navy won out, we're probably seeing Navy in the Cotton Bowl. Troy was also in that conversation before they lost a second time.

    I don't see it happening. And the more we keep getting FCS schools who come up to Sunbelt and take over our conference the least credible this conference looks. I don't care what anyone says, this conference football wise is a complete joke and the perception is worst.

    No.

    Our ceiling as an FBS program is 9-4. I know that because we've neveer done better as an FBS program.

    We are trying, and we will succeed, in raising that ceiling. We are not the only SBC school doing this. Several others have made this decision as well.

    Years ago, people like you never thought that the SBC would have 5 tie-ins, a nationally ranked program, and beat 2 other FBS conferences in CFP money. Same people never thought Louisiana could win more than 8 games, go to successive Bowls, and nearly double our athletic budget.

    I gotta say. This thread is very odd. It almost looks planned for all of you naysayers and regressives to be on the board at the same time.

    9-4 or 10-2. We still in the NOLA Bowl. I'm not naysaying or being regressive. I'm simply stating reality.
    You lack of acknowledging reality is naysaying and will end up being regressive. But hey hold that rope. One day if the stars align, we might play Vandy in the Camellia bowl.

    Haha, well possibly I combined the two conversations I am having on here at the same time, I apologize.
    But on NDSU, 10/10 times they would throttle us.
