CSU is a sleeping giant


Maybe always has been, but it's grown over the last decade or so. Maybe that is cliche, but, yes, market, region, growth, academics, research, even athletics in many areas other than football, has thrived. Those are important.

A power conference might take a chance on what the university has to offer. If it doesn't, nothing will change in terms of where CSU is at and hopefully the university continues to improve across the board.

Maybe no one cares about athletics. There is some apathy, sure, but as others have said, no one is getting pumped up to play San Jose State. It's just how it is. We have all seen plenty of support when things go well. I personally saw CSU fill several sections at the Lexington basketball tourney when Louisville otherwise dominated the crowd. Pretty sure no other school outside the Cards had as many people there, and that was traveling to Kentucky. There can be a hunger there.

Still, there are too many donations in other areas, too much success in academics, too many new graduates, new students, new buildings, growth everywhere you look to say only a handful of people care about CSU. Seems pretty well respected to me.

Football isn't the be all end all. It would help if CSU was better at the game for some more exposure and money, we all want it and recognize that, but CSU isn't in a bad spot either.
