Note that they get the other team's territory ... if they have territory.

It stinks when you play a team who already lost their land.

This is a pretty fun thing to follow during the season. It started on Reddit. Basically, whichever team wins the game gains the "territory" of the opposing school.

Here's the first post via SB Nation
https://www.sbnation.com/college-fo.../college-football-imperialism-map-week-1-2018

Minnesota is starting with a fairly large chunk of land to defend.

The U starts with one of the largest territories, only Washington (w/Alaska) and possible Wyoming has more territory.

Beating Fresno would boost the territory nicely

The historical map is pretty interesting, Ohio State rules, with Bama, Penn State and Pitt in the running for 2nd thru 4th.

MN is controlling its eastern and western borders by playing New Mexico State? That's a lot of smoke and mirrors.

It's not complicated. Each county starts the season controlled by the closest FBS team. If they win, they take over the other team's territory. It's for fun.

I hate to see the map of the indians losing battles including recent treaty issues to government.

One of the fun parts of Pitt last year was that they defeated Miami, and won all of Miami's land, and since they didn't make a bowl, they held on to all of that territory, haha.

One more pro for the "have a crappy year, miss a bowl, but stun Wisconsin" scenario discussed in another thread.

You’d think a team would have to actually be able to beat a team in a given state to actually have territory there. But then I guess you can make up BS rules for anything.

As mentioned earlier, JV schools aren't apart of this exercise. Until the Sioux move up to the big league, the U is the closest FBS team to Western ND.

Hey Herd. You nervous Chris Klieman will jump to the Kansas Jayhawks? I think he will definitely be a candidate.

Yes, you beat a 3-9 gopher team. You sure do like to cling to that victory

My God.
Wasn't the game like 4 coaches ago?

Jerry Kill's first year

They also beat Tim Brewster

NDSU fans seem to think they'd dominate the B1G if they were in it. I love reading comment sections from their fans.

This thing is pretty cool. I wonder how long it will take for the 'Historical' (started in '17) map to be completely ruled by one team? 3-4 years?

I want to see NDSU schedule someone like Ohio State and see how it goes. Or even a better Gopher team.

NDSU has Oregon, Arizona and Colorado on the schedule. Ohio St rarely schedules FCS opponents, although I think they've played Youngstown in the past. I'm sure ndsu would welcome the opportunity to play MN or WI.

Like he said, schedule someone legit like Ohio St. and see how it turns out. Oregon's run as a national power is over, Arizona has never been anything above mediocre, and Colorado has had one good season in the last 15 years.

The closest thing to a quality FBS team that NDAC has beaten was 2016 Iowa, who finished 6-3 in the Big Ten and is good for at least one early season sh1t-the-bed performance almost every year. Oh, and you really stuck it to that 2013 Kansas St. team that finished 5-4 in the Big 12.

Congratulations on your amazing run of JV success.

All worthy opponents. Truly.

Since you have no interest in the Gophers or, reading you posts, Big Ten football in general, you should go away. Come on back to discuss the Bison after they play any of those big time opponents. Since we have zero interest in discussing the likes of Cal Poly, North Alabama, Delaware, Missouri State, UC Davis, Butler etc. that plan would work well for all of us.

Quick look at the schedule for NDSU, it appears that those Power Conference Schools will start to show-up in 2020.

Hope to see you then.

How did a 9win MN team do at home against that gawd awful '16 Iowa team who completely STB? You want someone to be judged by playing Ohio State? Does MN or anyone want to be judged against Ohio S and AL? I don't think so. I'm sure if any DI FCS team could get a game against Ohio St, they would take it.

I never said that the 2016 Iowa team was "gawd awful." Stop making things up.

When you want to pretend that your squad is anything more than a cute little JV story? Yes, absolutely.

Does MN or anyone want to be judged against Ohio S and AL?

We are judged against Ohio St. whether we want to be or not. We play them most years and are in the same conference. When did NDAC play them and how did they do?

I'm sure if any DI FCS team could get a game against Ohio St, they would take it.

Ohio St. does play FCS teams. I virtually guarantee that NDAC could get a game against Ohio St. if they wanted it, particularly because OSU wouldn't have to pay them as much as MAC and Sun Belt teams they pay to come in and get destroyed every year. NDAC doesn't want to play a legit FBS team because their fairy tale that they could compete will be destroyed.
