He expresses his own thoughts about how he and his wife will continue to support the University...nothing more, nothing less. And some of you pounce on him like a pack of wolves? You would have thought Ben Moore had come on here to give us a lecture. The man deserves a little more respect.
    He is going to be chastised for the way he used "first amendment rights", though we all knew what he meant? He is going to be told to quit posting? You want to delete his thread?
    Yes, we are all upset, pissed, confused, heartbroken, dismayed, sad, mad, irritated...and a host of other adjectives to describe our frustrations, but let's not eat our own...especially a good man like BE. Disagree with him? Certainly, but respectfully. Here, I'll give an example...

    BE, I disagree with you about "national prominence". I don't think FCS football has any national attention whatsoever anymore. I think FCS is what used to be Division II years ago. I believe a university will get much more attention at the G-5 level by winning a pedestrian bowl game than they would by winning the NC at the FCS level. I am personally very thankful we moved up to FBS.

    Now I will wait for you to eat me alive....

    Who are you referring to? If it's BrookletEagle you obviously don't know anything about him. His post was more about the process than the people involved.

    A few musings:

    1. Anytime the First Amendment is used in a post, I cringe. 99.9999999999999% of the time the poster who mentions the 1A does not even understand what it says......Hence, the rest of the post is cast in a shadow of doubt.

    2. I'm all for supporting my school, BUT.....As long as I am giving money, I'll respectfully criticize as I see fit.

    I'll say this again, P5 programs are "the new" D1A's, G5's are the new D1AA's. If that hurts anyone's ego, I'm sorry. I also still think that eventually there will be a G5 playoff, just like our current P5 playoff.

    Hey leave me out of this. You just have to know how to correctly discuss chicken joints. Just wait till ValleyBoy brings up the subject of Beach Chicken joints.

    Can I just point out that GS was never a "nationally prominent team/school". Maybe in our world and in the FCS world we did, but never true national prominence. We were as nationally prominent then as NDSU is now, and they've even had college gameday at their place. But still ask your general football fan, and they will say that NDSU is a "good little DII team".
