They've scouted us well. Not going to beat us running, but found the soft spot early.

PASS D IS ATROCIOUS RIGHT NOW

Don't know what they are doing, but we have NO pass defense. That second TD could have gone to any one of three guys.

We are well-prepared to defend NDSU in the running game, but I'm not sure we have the adjustments
to stop their passing game if they continue to break their tendency to run.

We have to run ball control offense and keep their offense off the field.

Could see Newman soon. We need that speed from the QB.

I think I have the answer to the question on why Jamison Chapman carried the ball near the end of the Furman game. He will have to be very active today.

We will NEVER win a national championship as long as the coaches keep doing things the way they are doing them on defense. We cannot defend the pass and never have been able to. Something has to change schematically or we will always have a ceiling that we cannot ascend above.

Last week against Furman Luke Carter was kicking his KO's shorter than all season. He generally seems to kick about half of his KO's about 5 yards deep, but he hasn't had one into the end zone in the last two games that I can remember. Anyone know what is going on?

Wow, Newman comes in and we get a pretty good run off the pitch and Morgan fumbles.

Neednpoints before the half. Can’t give the ball back to them again!

That was a critical possession- we could march down the field, eat clock and answer.

A turnover is exactly what we could not afford in the Fargo Dome.

Need to answer with 7 before the half. Poor kick coverage, fumble, pass interference penalty.... we are rattled. Need to regroup badly

WOFFORD players don't appreciate the "thank God I'm a country boy song" with NDSU up 28-10

couple bad mistakes by wofford cost them

We're only as good as we play.

Today, that's not very good. We're shooting ourselves in the foot repeatedly.

Give credit to the Bison- they're a tough, talented team.

Can’t beat a good team like NDSU when you turn the ball over like we have. Reminiscent of the last time we were nationally televised!! Anyone recall that game?
