I see at least 4 Big Sky football teams listed. Nice standards in that conference. Am I the only one who thinks thats a little embarassing?

No, I agree embarassing. It is quite ironic a couple of years ago we would have given anything to get into that conference. I for one would like to thank their presidents for not letting us in. We came out of the deal smelling like roses.

It has to be for once that the Dakota's are too far away arguement, that came from BSC admin people, turns out to be a very good thing. I agree we are in the better position than what we ever dreamed four years ago.

Just based on the one Certification forum that I attended, SDSU Faculty and Admin are commited to following the academic rules 100 per cent. There seems to be wide campus support for the academic regs of D1. I would venture to say, that SDSU will never show up on list if we continue this commitment.
