There have been articles that FBS may divide further into P5 and a G5. You seem to think that Cruzado would MSU in the 3rd division. Any decent President would fight to keep its relevance.

FBS is a huge,factor for enrollment. Schools that move up see enrollment increases, mostly from out of state as FBS is nearly a big advertising vehicle in the sky. FCS is crap is comparison. Not an FBS move up, but Alabama has over doubled in size since Saban became coach. App St, Ga Southern, Ga St, and Coastal Carolina continue to have more interest and larger enrollments than their FCS days.
Sioux fan??? You must mean be a fan of the University of Sioux Falls right? I recall UND is now the “Hawks” or something like that. If you are UND, we can understand how you might not understand the excitement of FCS playoff football since UND has experienced exactly 1 playoff game in the past 11 years. It must suck to be so irrelevant. And that move to the MVFC will do wonders for your fan base as you get to play 3 Dakota schools annually that will ensure 3 losses annually. Going from the cellar of the Big Sky to the cellar of the MVFC... that is a smart move.

It is very hard to understand your interest in moving up to FBS when UND’s move from DII to FCS has not been very successful. Lots of losses and little postseason participation. Even your attendance is down with less than 7,500 at your last home game.

As far as growth at MSU, we are now the largest university in the state by about 30 more students than U of M. FCS has worked well for us and we can maintain financial stability. This is just smart. And we still can draw an occasional 20,000 fans to a football game. Pretty cool if you ask me.
I meant 30 percent. Not 30. :D
Catholic,
Please check the enrollment numbers...

New coach at Dixie State with Big Sky ties:

With Division I potential on the horizon, Dixie State quickly calls up Paul Peterson from Snow College

ST. GEORGE — The past few weeks have been enough of a whirlwind to make Paul Peterson’s head spin.

When Dixie State announced that the Trailblazers would not retain head football coach Shay McClure just under a month ago, Peterson reached out. The former BYU graduate assistant had elevated Snow College to an 18-4 record in two seasons as head coach, but he let it be known that he had interest in the moving his family, including wife Meagan and five sons, to St. George.

Peterson had already applied for the job at Dixie State a few years ago; he was passed over.

This time, he wasn’t.
.......
Peterson worked as a graduate assistant under Bronco Mendenhall and Robert Anae at BYU in 2006 when the Cougars went 11-2 with a Mountain West title and No. 15 national ranking. He went on to a four-stop at Southern Utah, spending four seasons as quarterbacks and wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator under Ed Lamb, before moving up to five years as offensive coordinator at Sacramento State under former Weber State coach Jody Sears.

SUU, NAU and Weber are natural opponents. I'm pretty sure we have payed them a couple of times.

I would like to see the Big Sky Football Conference with 8-9 teams and the WAC with the rest. Doubt it happens but I would still like to see it.

https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900 ... rence.html Wasn't Dixie State Rob Ash's first home game? Looks like Dixie State will be back on MSU's schedule sometime in the future (towards the bottom of the article).
