So, we're a couple of days away from UND's game at Texas Tech.
A lot has been written and said about UND's upcoming venture to the Big 12 power. The central question is whether UND - in its second season as a Division I FCS program - should schedule a BCS power like Tech.
There are pros and cons to both sides.
Undoubtedly, it will be a great experience, one that brings exposure to UND no matter the outcome. It certainly can't hurt recruiting, especially in Texas where the Sioux have landed heralded freshman linebacker Dominique Bennett in addition to defensive backs Kenny Watkins and Kris Ankenbauer. The Sioux will be playing teams from Texas in the near future, so it's a state the Sioux want to recruit.
But what happens if things really get out of hand Saturday in Lubbock, where the Red Raiders have been known to keep their foot on the gas no matter the score.
With that, what are the thoughts out there about UND playing this kind of guarantee game?
The revenue ($350,000) from the game helps the athletic department's bottom line. That's a no-brainer.
But is money everything?
So, let's discuss.
Finally, to those of you who continually post mindless cheap shots, try - for once - to offer some constructive insight to the discussion.
