    Doc, sometimes I agree with you, sometimes I don’t, but you are one of the most thoughtful and non-judgemental posters we have.

    I thought for sure that designation went to orange man/little hands/yuge ego for commander-in-chief. Did I miss something?

    "Profitable collegiate athletic departments" just aren't a thing. See the UConn report. (Not saying you don't recognize this, MD - I'm sure you do.) The real question is how much of a deficit can you afford to run and still net the goals of advertisement, exposure, engagement, etc.? Non-scholarship football is very, very tough from that standpoint, both for the team and the department in general.

    I know the Target Field thing is a big buy game, but have they lined up similar cash windfalls for the following seasons as well? TBH if they are able to strategically do stuff like that regularly to offset so many costs, it's a huge burden lifted. Would love for that to be the case.

    At the same time I think you have to look at the responsibility of even playing that game.

    If it happened this year it is the equivalent of almost a very good d3 team playing a top 25 d1 team.

    Hey now, the dawgs didn’t have a good year but they did beat a scholarship school on the road, a game they were paid to play in, and if was d1 single A would carry the same weight as the Mich app state upset in probability.

    IShoevv was calling DawgsMD the most thoughtful poster on the board. I told him I thought it was TFP.

    Never a good joke when it has to be explained, I guess.

    For sure. And it was astonishing. But NDSU would be favored by about 29 over YSU last year and 65 over Butler.

    For comparisons sake, Clemson would only be favored by 20 over NDSU.

    That’s not a fair fight.
