The morons on this board believe that Dixie St is going to build up the WAC to FCS over ten years. Way too expensive. Their true intent is to slide into the Big Sky as soon as it breaks into pieces.

Tarleton St does not intend to move up for the worst travel situation in the US. Their intent has always been to backfill in the Southland, which will limit expenses when the Southland loses schools to an FBS WAC. Their admin isn't morons like this board. Cruzado will be jumping over to a new Summit this sports year, as into she already gave the Big Sky the two years notice, but didn't release it publicly.
The Big Sky isn't going to break up, you would think a UND fan with their history in the GW would know that and undersized conference isn't sustainable. Its much more likely that the BSC adds a team and forms divisions even without a championship game.

Cruzado is just jumping for joy that SUU, No Col, Portland St, and Sac St are remaining as conference opponents with their negligible fan base. Sure.

Hey soobydo, It's not even her call. The BOR has that call and none of them are stupid enough to not lump both together. Are you related to Catfan, it sounds like you are on or off the same meds.

The BOR only vetoes President's decisions, but does not propose them.

The Griz and the Cats have to stay together as that's what they care about.

Mont used to hang with the pre PAC8 crowd and Mont St used to hang with the Utah's, BYU and Denver. But that is just too costly. The league will be a step up over SUU and NoColo but still affordable.

So, she gave the Big Sky notice, but didn't inform the BOR's? What about Bodnar? Didn't happen anywhere but in your head.

Giving notice isn't the same as leaving for another conference. Bodnar was in place after the notice. Prepare for an earthquake from your eggshells of stupidity.

This is one of the stupidest boards around. Regular idiots abound here.

Some BSC schools are spending tens of millions to make FBS caliber facilities. Some are not, knowing that they can't afford it.

It's all laid out in the Bozeman paper, but this board is incapable of higher thought.

https://www.bozemandailychronicle.com/s ... ac503.html

SUU, NAU, No Col, Idaho St and Portland St don't have the money so Dixie St will join them at FCS, CWU later, and UVU, Seattle and Metro State of Denver without football later. The rest of the BSC graduates from FCS.

You really think that facilities upgrades and that article are evidence of a desire to move to a P5 conference that nobody watches ant the teams are halfway across the country? If you do then you are stupider than we all thought and we already thought you were really dumb. Maybe you should just stick to hockey.

Soobydo, a guy stuck in the past, while all the Hawks see the real picture. Then you call every body else stupid because they can't see the vision you concocted in your own mind.

Have to be invited for a P5, like Utah and TCU, because that's super exclusive and high money. App St, Ga Southern, and Coastal Carolina are who Cruzado wants to be like.. G5's get CFP money with the next contact and they what she wants.

This whole board is completely ignorant about conference politics. MSU is the highest rated academic school in the BSC and Cruzado wants to up the ante.. SUU, NoCo, and Idaho St need to be ditched.

Yeah, I meant G5 which is obvious since I commented that nobody watches it. What is the advantage of being in a G5 conference and losing established rivalries. None, all it does is cost more. In case you haven't noticed almost half our roster (and um's too) is Montana kids, if we were to go to a G5 that would be cut at least in half. Why does that matter, support, major parts of our support and historical traditions will be lost by moving up to G5. It would not be a good idea for either university in a state with as small a population as we have.

Losing established rivalries with SUU, NAU, NoCo, Idaho St and Portland St is no big deal because they don’t have fan bases to speak of.

You seem to be wanting NAIA, as then you could have all Montana teams like Montana Tech, Carrol, Northern, MSU-Billings etc and really get the Montanans interested.

Every school that has moved up has seen enrollment increases from more awareness out of state. Going FBS is a tool the Presidents use to increase awareness and hike enrollment, even though it costs more. Research U’s like MSU either move up or they stay DIII. The CFP pot will increase at the next contract in 2025, and Cruzado wants a small piece of it. FCS is almost a sure way to lose money as the CFP has changed the economics of FBS. NDSU has lost enrollment almost every year it won FCS, so piss on that. FCS gives almost no national awareness. FBS at least gets the scores announced.

MSU just spent $18 million on FBS facilities but this board has no clue why.

Idaho never wanted to move down but it no longer had regional rivals and would have paid bookoo bucks to get home games but will soon have a regional FBS conference. EWU doesn’t have much in academics, but it knows how to win and is near Spokane. Weber St has the same issue, but a different metro area. And of course Montana, who have been ahead of you in facilities. So its not like you will move up without rivals.

As someone who sat down with Costello a couple times and discussed donations, and then donated a substantial amount of money, I have a great idea why we just spent 18 mill on upgrades. And why we’ll spend even more money going forward. And I’ll say with 1000% certainty that it’s not for the reasons you listed above. Sorry.

But I appreciate your hot takes!
