    If we became an Independent...

    If we become independent after things go South (or West or Mideast) due to poor choices for conferences (MAC/Mountain), what would you think our football schedule would look like?

    Identify your 12 teams.

    Here is one:
    Wyoming
    South Dakota
    North Dakota
    Notre Dame
    Army
    Air Force
    UNI
    Iowa
    Colorado State
    Boise State
    TCU
    Tulsa

    Re: If we became an Independent?

    If we went independent we'd have to play some big boys to pay the bills:

    USC
    ND
    UT
    MN
    WI
    Purdue
    Michigan
    etc

    it would be ugly.

    Hey, we could then recruit nationally. We could play the Chiz.

    We could then sign an exclusive deal with FCS and all of our home games would be on TV. Hooray!

    Forget FCS. When ND joins a conference, NBC will need someone to fill that hole. I can see it now!

    I prefer the CW network. They have maverick programming.

    If that was our schedule good luck with selling season tickets.
