And you know 4th it's pretty easy to break it down even more. Who we chasing really? Until we catch and pass NDSU nothing else really matters. You gotta compete with, and beat NDSU. Everything goes through them. Hell they've got 7 Illinois and 11 Wisconsin kids on their roster. How many were we after? Beats me. But if an IPF doesn't matter why has it become a multi-million dollar arms race to have the best?fourthandshort wrote: ↑Thu Jul 25, 2019 7:51 amso just look at your split of MVFC teams ... now roughly count the number of playoff appearances over say last 10 years in your column A versus your column B ... first noting, USD is weakest link in your column A and ISUr is strongest link in your column B, then maybe WIU. Putting aside the obvious factor (cold vs colder climates), you just perfectly divided the league into upper half and lower half of performers over last 10 seasons.TIMMY wrote: ↑Thu Jun 13, 2019 6:50 pmGood question. Don't have the time to figure it out but I do know this.
Column A: North Dakota State, Northern Iowa and South Dakota all play in domes. South Dakota State and Youngstown State have indoor practice facilities.
Column B: Illinois State, along with Missouri State, Southern Illinois, Western Illinois and Indiana State currently don't have indoor practice facilities.
That's our completion year in and year out so it's all that really matters.
Coincidence ? I think not.
Of topic sorta but II was at Northwestern last week. Holy Christmas Trees is that building beautiful.
