Just got finished listening to Bison 1660. Pretty knowledgeable staff. They made some good points. One was that NDSU is deep at every position defensively. We won't be able to wear their DL down like we did others because of quality depth. I sort of agree. The dive game may be tough sledding but I don't see NDSU DL being agile enough to assist in outside run support. Also they kept referencing 2012 but this offense is nothing like that team. This is Brandon's team, but I think Joe Newman will have to be utilized this game. As we saw vs Youngstown, he posses speed at the QB position that is not the norm for the MVFC.

Defensively they mentioned some things that concern me as well. And if they saw it, I know the NDSU staff has seen it. With the soft zones we can expect to see plenty of play from the TE over the middle. NDSU wants to spread the LB'S and hit the soft zones. I do think they underestimate our front 7, and NDSU thinks they can wear down our DL. Good luck with that!

We need to play penalty free, cause a few turnovers, win time of posession, and score at least 20+. This is not the same NDSU as teams past.

I assure you the coaches and players feel the same way.
It’s all fun and games until you get hit in the mouth.

the thing is, NDSU doesn't want to pass the ball more than 25 times a game. Their ideal is 15-20 times. Meanwhile, Wofford has been defending QBs all year who throw it 27+ times a game.

I honestly think that the strategy has to be the same as Furman. Shut down the run and don't get beat deep. completion percentage wise and yardage wise, their QB is very comparable to Blazejowski.

If we put them in a position where they have to throw it most of the time to beat us, we're in good shape.

Based upon the comments of the NDSU coach, I'm skeptical that they are as ready as they think (mentioned Goodson but now Newman, for example, mentions McAfee and not Stoddard, etc). Having said that, I could be overreading.

We'll be okay. Just have to play our game.

This is like the second round of suspensions for the bison in the last month. Earlier this year they kicked off a couple players for drug violations (by the way, remember when Youngstown played players that should have been suspended against us? but I digress)

He's not a starter though.

Not a starter but a Sr. Alot of game experience in that DL rotation missing. Hate it for the kid and program. Hope he learns from whatever the incident.

Watching the JMU game. Hope we take all the points we can get. Points and field position are at premium during the playoffs. Don't be ashamed to take the 3pts

Also don't try to be too cute.

That's the problem our OC has.

No suspended player for NDSU has been a starter, as I understand it.

Hope we can make it as quiet at Fargo tomorrow as it is at JMU right now. Weber St up by 8 with 3:14 left. That might have been a great time for WS to go for two and get up by 9.

If I were a betting man, I would gladly take that line. All day long.


I guess today is a day I'm glad I am not a betting man. Did not see that coming.

I'm glad I didn't bet. yikes.

I also think this game says more about how good NDSU is than how not-good we are.

How many years in a row does NDSU have to finish top 4 until they jump to G5?
