    It's a stupid idea and will never happen and doesn't need to happen. UNI will be fine.

    I do find it interesting that some of the same people who wanted Iowa to do whatever it took to save ISU when it looked like ISU might get left in the cold are now telling UNI to "sink or swim."

    Not the same thing at all.

    Asking for UI support to the Big10 is not the same as getting cash handouts.

    I hope you're just being a troll and trying to get a rise out of people, because there is a clear and distinct difference between D2 and FCS (formerly known as D IAA). Less scholarships, less financial resources, etc. If you can't comprehend that than you are truly a complete moron.

    Look at the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. They have much more in terms of resources than Iowa, with only one BCS level school.

    A good comparison for UNI is St Cloud State. SCSU is a bigger school than UNI, yet competes in D2 in all sports but hockey. UNI should do the same.
    Except Wisconsin has 4 Div 1 schools. You've never heard of Marquette? You know, the Big East school.

    FYI, Iowa has 4 division 1 schools as well.

    Re: Gartner thinks Iowa, ISU should contribute to UNI Athletics

    The U of Iowa can bankroll UNI--especially their athletic department. UNI is just an extension of the U of Iowa, and the obnoxious UNI grads who bleed black and gold make me sick.

    Heck, I know several UNI grads who attend games @ Kinnick wearing black and gold---even @ the UNI-Iowa game in 2010.

    pathetic.

    plus Coach Farley wets his pants talking about his beloved Hawkeyes, even after Kirk FreeRentz has annually stolen a UNI commitment from Farley. How many times has Kirk kicked Farley in the nads over recruiting?

    Farley is like Kevin Bacon of Animal House: "Thank you may I have another"

    Re: Gartner thinks Iowa, ISU should contribute to UNI Athletics

    The problem with UNI is that they are a lessor brand (FCS). Some people (actually just 1 person on here ) don't seem to get that. UNI has a quality football program at the FCS level. That is a great thing for UNI but when it comes to what a BCS Conference school is going to pay them to come and play in their stadium it makes a huge difference. For example....

    Last season Montana (the team that thrashed UNI in the FCS Playoffs) was paid $500,000 to play a game at Tennessee. The Vols also played games against Middle Tennessee State ($750,000) and Buffalo ($900,000).

    Could Montana have beaten Buffalo or Middle Tennessee State last year? Probably. This isn't about the "quality" of the product that these teams are putting on the field though. The bottom line is that a home game against a non BCS Conference FBS team is far more valuable to a BCS Conference school then a game against an FCS team.

    Montana @ Tennessee, $500,000

    Navy @ Ohio State, $1,400,000
    Arkansas State @ Auburn, $1,000,000
    Kent State @ Alabama, $1,200,000

    A quote from the article...

    "Football Championship Subdivision schools such as Montana do not command as high of a price tag as a lower-tier school in the Football Bowl Subdivision such as Buffalo or MTSU because an FBS school can only count one victory against an FCS school toward its minimum of six required to qualify for a postseason bowl game."

    FCS schools just simply aren't in as high demand for scheduling as lower level FBS schools are.


    UT paying four non-conference teams $3.1 million to play at Neyland GoVolsXtra

    Except for Marquette is private and UWM and UWGB aren't trying to fund a football team and neither is Marquette.

    So they can't be compared to what UNI is doing.

    No, asking Iowa to tell the Big 10 to invite ISU or Iowa will leave is exactly like getting a handout. Only in Iowa's case, the handout was a hell of a lot bigger than 200 thousand. Not everyone on this site had this opinion obviously but there were some.


    Anyway, it doesn't really matter because ISU (or Iowa) isn't going to give UNI anything, and rightfully so.

    I'm really not sure how this UNI thing became such a media crisis. As far as deficits go, it's really not that bad.

    "and after slices and chops the school eliminated baseball, among other things"

    Didn't ISU do the same thing not too long ago?

    Huh? They're still Div I schools are they not? My point was in the list of extreme measures that UNI will have to take, dropping down to Div II comes right after hell freezing over.

    I don't believe UNI will be forced to drop the football program but it's at least a possibility. Dropping down to Div II might be the dumbest proposal I've ever seen on this subject. Hell, why not jump down to Div III and compete with Simpson, Central, Coe, etc.

    Again, not having a football program like those DIVISION 1 schools is a possibility, even if a remote one.

    Dropping down to Division II? Not a possibility.
