Wow, Montana State, really?
I was shocked to see that Montana State pulled some crap. Another reason to hate the Big Sky conference. Buyouts have got to come at a higher price.
Three years ago my family and I and many others traveled to Bozeman for a playoff game, in the year that one bad call could have possibly kept us from heading into next year looking for a four-peat. The Bobcat fans were a hoot, the team was good, until we again wore them, like many other opponents down in the 4th. The city was friendly and I even wrote an editorial in their paper which they printed. I complimented them up and down. Too bad for those fans and people that an administration would now turn around and shaft NDSU by pulling out of this year’s game.
First off, I have faith in Gene and Craig to fill that home game with another FCS opponent, and the 100K can go right to that team.
Without looking too far ahead, Oh how sweet it would be to see us hosting playoff games throughout next year again, and would it not be sweet to have the football gods end up with a matchup of let’s say Montana State at NDSU in 2nd round of 2013-2014 FCS championship playoffs. Hey Bobcat administrators, give Georgia Southern a call and see how that worked out 2 years ago for them.
Hope you get your game with an FBS team. Apparently you need to play a lesser opponent. Remember NDSU is still a little ole FCS school not a big FBS school.
Sorry Bobcat fans, we were looking forward to returning the hospitality to you, but your administration just fumbled.
