    I believe he played as a true freshman and was defensive freshman of the year. So he might still have redshirt or be close to graduating.

Not so much if your conference bye week is early, but how in the hell are you supposed to find a OOC game in Week 11? Look at Black Hills this year. They had to go all the way to Illinois and play an NAIA team. So Mesa, if you go with Dixie, talk someone else into it also. Or talk UCCS into adding football.
    The GLIAC and LSC each have 9 teams, so there are options. The GLVC only has eight, so they usually have late season OOC opportunities, too.

    I have the same question. I imagine anyone who has been following the Ferris State transfer drama has reservations.

    That's a 4-4-4 transfer, meaning Ferris was his 3rd 4 year institution. This kid looks like he's only been at Dixie, he can transfer and play immediately I believe.

    As long as we don't go to 12 teams so we get no OOC chances and everyone's Strength of Schedule is .500 come playoff time I guess I can live with any number that qualifies for Earned Access.

Very disappointing news, huge setback for this team after making big strides.
    Welcome to the Board, Blazerfan!

    How did the community meetings regarding going FCS go? I think they had a couple of these early this month?

    The meetings went well I think the town is ready for the move to d1. Football team is obviously not ready but most of the other sports seem primed for a smooth transition. In other news more guys announced they are transferring including two time captain and starting safety Mike Jones. Another big loss

    The RMAC will indeed have 2 OOC games if Dixie takes a hike. That would be good provided other conferences schedule lowly RMAC OOC games.

    That's just me assuming. All the rumors are that (and a lot of things pointing to) Dixie State is going D1. I know they are D2 next year at least. Not sure how fast the transition happens. I would love 2 OOC games a year and I would love to be able to have them all at the start of the year instead of trying to track down OOC opponents in Week 10 or 11 depending on when your conference off week occurs.

    How so? I live here and have seen no indication StG is a D-I town. Early season games are f***in' hot! The airport's gonna close for months and the only recourse is 2 hours away in Las Vegas. Restaurants and shoppin' are marginal. It's gettin' more 'n more crowded every day. The average driver's age is approachin' triple digits. The few games (football and basketball) I've attended haven't been sell-outs; not even close to bein' crowded with students nor locals. Visitors would have to drive to Mesquite to pick up their tailgatin' supplies. I'm at a loss as to why the administration thinks this is a D-I town. Obviously an opinion. If anyone else can fill me in with some pluses, please do.

    Well, they'll show up on the ESPN ticker at least?

    I'm sure the 4 remnants of the GNAC will be all over scheduling RMAC teams, especially if the RMAC teams will agree to home and home deals.

    Half the time they're not even listed in the LV newspaper I pick up every Sunday at the grocery store. The local Spectrum is TP, unless you're interested in last week's game. Lovely town but not ready for prime time.

    Have you ever been to cedar city where southern Utah is located? Or even Idaho state in Pocatello. It’s more than ready to be a division 1 school/community.

    Southern Utah and Idaho State play in the Big Sky Conference. Where's Dixie State gonna play? The WAC? The WAC doesn't play football ... only NM State does, as an independent, at the FBS level. And the team is not very good. Football in the WAC is years away from happening, if ever. Dixie could do itself a favor by doing something good at the DII level before even thinking of moving up. The administration doesn't seem to know what it's doing. Exhibit #1. Firing a very good coach. Losing quality players who believe the program is heading in the wrong direction. Makes no sense.

  18. Default Re: Black Monday

    You are obviously very misinformed which is okay but they would not play at the fbs level they would be an independent at the fcs level and play mostly big sky schools.

    Simply makes no sense, athletic budget is nowhere near where it needs to be but good luck. I'll look to UNC and say no thanks.

    It is my understanding that the WAC wants to raid the Big Sky, pick up Dixie (maybe Mesa) and start sponsoring FCS football. I don't know that NMSU would drop down, I'm sure they could stay independent in FBS.
