Only 5 home games wouldn't be so bad in an 11 game season, but not in a 12 game season. That's yet yet another reason this move was made.
But for how long has MSU known it was a 12-game season and that a home game is good for local businesses? Did they just realize this a week ago?
Rare that I agree with a Griz fan on much...but on this point I do. Hopefully PF is locking down 2014 now. I think the buyout was lame. Mostly because it came so late. Now NDSU is scrambling to fill their schedule. Most folks understand s*%$# happens, but getting a late notice doesn't give the other party time to react. These contracts should have a longer notice to buyout or make it more expensive to buyout as you get closer to the game.
I could give you this point, but since both NDSU and MSU signed this agreement with a seemingly open buy-out clause, then shame on NDSU for signing it. People can blame MSU, Fields and Ash all they want, but they did nothing wrong. If people want to look at this in a sunshine-and-daisies sort of way, yeah, MSU left NDSU with a scheduling problem. MSU needed to do what was best for MSU, and I'm glad for that. Its not like we just decided we didn't want to play the Bison (regardless of what a couple posters believe). In the end, its NDSU's own damn fault for allowing a late buy out. Its not like they're a victim here - they walked away with $100,000 which, and since NDSU is the next coming of Christ to FCS football, should help easily draw someone else to Fargo to play them. The Bison will be fine.
+1,2,3,&4
And if the Griz had done the same thing, would you have the same opinion..... I doubt it.
I really don't care what the griz do with their schedule. Not sure why the griz fans give a crap about ours. Your AD needs to look out for what is best for your program and lately he has his hands full keeping kids out of trouble. PF needed to do what he needed to do to get 6 home games, and he broke no laws doing it.

Unlike some, I could really care less what the griz do. Cancel your entire 2013 schedule, I don't care.

I've got some bad news to report. I was in Williston for work last week all decked out in Cat Gear. Big mistake. MSU is getting no respect from the bison fans over there and I spent 10 days getting berated and called a pussy for backing out of the game in Fargo. Don't these idiots know that I had nothing to do with pulling out of our game with them? Gonna be a long year...

Yeah. It's going to be tough not going to places like Williston and Mandan. :(

A long year for who? I don't know about yourself, but I think the Cats are primed for another great year. Who gives a rat's a$$ what anyone in Williston thinks anyway? Perhaps a dip-sh!t griz dressed in Cat gear!

I'm just telling you guys what happened to me. I did us proud though. Every time I heard someone making disparaging remarks about the Cats I just snickered and yelled "First Down Bobcats!" while pawing at the air. That at least seemed to confuse them for a bit. Go Cats!

Don't let this distract you from the fact that the griz blew a 22-0 lead.

No one in Williston these days has lived in North Dakota for more than 2 months anyway - So don't sweat it

Yeah, I saw you there. I was the guy riding the unicorn. Why didn't you respond when I waved to you? You seemed WAY too obsessed with that hooker. I'm not judging, but dude, she just wasn't into you ... especially when you told her that all you had was two fiddy.
