The University of Sioux Falls has long been rumored to be making the move to NCAA DII. In recent years those rumors have gotten louder and louder as the Cougars began construction on new athletic facilities.

"Our thought was some point in the future when our facilities are 100% completed our complex as a whole would be state of the art for even the NCAA DII level," said President Mark Benedetto of the University of Sioux Falls.

"When we near completion of our complex we will explore NCAA DII. But the economic downturn has slowed the fundraising for our complex and I do not see the University moving toward DII until our facilities near completion."

"As the academic year winds down it would appear all but one of the NAIA's Midwestern schools is staying put as William Jewell moves to NCAA DII. Sioux Falls may be the next school to transition as they have already indicated it is part of their strategic plan for athletics moving the question from a matter of "if" to a matter of "when"."

"Athletics
The Cougars participate in NAIA athletics in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. The Men's Basketball team won the GPAC conference title in the spring of 2007. The football team won the NAIA Division II National Championship in 2006 and has been the powerhouse of the conference for the past six years.

USF was originally part of the SDIC (South Dakota Interstate Conference) until the year 2000. They then joined the Great Plains Athletic Conference. The football team won the 1996, 2006 and 2008 NAIA national championship with a perfect record in each season."

how is it the dakotas are all so darned good at football?
