    The remarkable fact is that they have done so with 90% of their players

    By all accounts, NDSU for the past several years has fielded a football team that is equal to or better than ISU.

    The Bison are the current three-time defending NCAA Division I-FCS National Champions and have a 43-2 record since the start of 2011, the best record in all of Division I Football during that time frame.

    The remarkable fact is that they have done so with 90% of their players coming from the upper midwestern states, in the heart of ISU's backyard. There's a lot to be said for choosing hometown players.

    Re: The remarkable fact is that they have done so with 90% of their players

    The problem with that is that the levels of competition are different. My college (the College of Wooster) has the highest winning percentage in the NCAA in the 2000's (.847). That doesn't mean they have been better teams than Iowa State since 2000 (Iowa State's winning percentage is .568 over that same span).

    I would take last three years NDSU program over Iowa State in a heart beat. But most of that is because I've hated our offensive coordinator the last three years

    I understand your point but...

    CPR says there are only 8 or so D1 players each year from our state and the OP 's point is that we don't need to obsessively recruit Texas and Florida to find good players. There are good players around if we can mold them to suit our needs it may benefit us more than spending so much time down south.

    What would happen if you put NDSU in a Top 5 conference? I don't know but I'd sure love to see Auburn or Florida State play the FCS winner in an exhibition game.

    Is this a troll trap? If so, I hope it works.

    Yeah this team while I respect what they have done. Would get murdered if they played in the big 12. You tink they walk into Norman or Austin and walk out with anything less than a 50-80 point beat down?


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    West Virginia and TCU were top tier programs in the Big East and MWC respectively. They also have the benefit of having much more fertile recruiting grounds than the upper midwest. Both teams have seen first hand how fun it is to join a big boy league.

    But what's considered a "good player" at the FCS level is different than at the big 12 level. Those players may be good enough to win at the FCS and occasionally pick off a power 5 conference team, but aren't good enough to consistently compete at the big 12 level. Just like how Wooster does very well in d-3 and can come close to winning in an exhibition game at d-1, but could not compete at that level.

    NDSU isn't D1, at least not in the sense that was intended (FBS) so I don't really see the point there.

    I should have stopped reading after the first sentence. Terrible post.

    We had an o-coordinator the last three years?

    Unfortunately. A random number generator and/or dart-throwing baboon would have been more effective.

    Our 2012 and 2013 teams were better. NDSU wouldn't have reached 6 wins either of those years. Last year is a different story though.
