    My post about SDSU was in jest but if he had academics in order he would have been here after HS.

    Who knows? "a week ago" from Lurker44's post put's Greg in Lincoln on Jan. 2 - still Christmas vacation. Maybe he had to bring the pumpkin pie to a New Year's Day meal? :Biggrin:

    So, again, you mean South Dakota State? If they had played this year, that's the "real" SDSU who would have won. South Dakota State is also the older school, and it's been referred to as "SDSU" since the Teddy Roosevelt administration, so there's that.

    P.S.--I went to the University of South Dakota, so typing all of the above makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit, but the truth is the truth.

    1a is major leagues, 1aa is minors. Real SDSU is Aztecs, but you feel free to live in fantasy land.

    Edit: SDSU history goes back to 1897.

    Edit for HoustonHusker: This is playful banter between MBC and myself, not to be taken seriously or fret over.

    The Mountain West Conference isn’t the major league

    No one refers to the FBS as the “majors”

    Both FBS and FCS are under the scope of the NCAA. Both collegiate levels. One higher than the other. Thanks for playing what?

    Was just giving a correction. Referring to D1 Ball as the majors is just kinda silly.

    Don’t really see the joking tone, considering you told this other poster to “live in fantasy land” for having another view.

    It’s all good though, I know you’re “joking” now since I corrected you. Also the real SDSU is up for debate and isn’t settled by if the school in the FBS or FCS.

    You said this to me 30 mins ago and now I’m just to supposed to know this was all a joke. Instead of wasting your time by copying and pasting definitions, make yourself more clear.
