Wofford does not play well on national television.

Unfortunately, if I game planned Wofford I would throw 75% of the time. Just look at the films and it is completely obvious. Then with Lennox out we have made some big mistakes-IMO directly related.

Curse of the Deuce! No more ESPN2. We cannot expect to compete when shoot ourselves in the foot repeatedly. Will take every ounce of guts this team has to comeback in the 2nd half.

Maybe we just aren’t good enough to beat NDSU. They are the MAIN team in their state and area and they hav some HUGE advantages over us...and many other FCS teams.

How many times has the ball been on the ground our last 4 possessions! The Bison are good but they aren’t this much better than us!!

Too many mistakes, without which we still are not winning but are close. Really miss McAfee's 7.5 ypc. It is about execution, and we had to execute very well and instead executed very poorly. Three pass attempts, one dropped and one open receiver missed. Two fumbles on our end. I would have left Goodson in; without a passing game we had no chance, and Goodson clearly passes it better. And yeah, NDSU is good for sure.

Second half we need to keep our heads up and do what we do; play with pride and class, it is 0-0.

NDSU is executing a good gameplan. We're turning the ball over. That's the difference.

I'm not even mad at our coaches or anything. It's not like we're getting outcoached. Heck, this game is only a matter of 2-3 plays from being competitive.

NDSU is a good team.

We played YSU very well on national television last year.

We are simply outmanned and outgunned at this point, and we've helped NDSU be the much better team
in the first half.

I'm watching the second half to see if we show toughness and determination for the entire game,
and, hopefully, hold on to the football.

Regardless of the outcome, this team has had a much better year than anyone projected, and I applaud
them, especially the Seniors.

Hey, we could have lost the Newman fumble and the fumble on the kick! We are playing some guys whom we haven't seen all year as well.

YSU wasn't on national TV.

Newman didn't fumble, Morgan did.

Point taken on YSU.

Same on the fumble. Newman handed it off.

Never in my life thought I would be switching over when we were in the early minutes of the second half to watch Duke against BC. Can't miss a chance to see Duke lose their first conference game, however!

Agreed boulder! This is so hard to watch

Well, at least Duke lost. Some small consolation. Trouble for Wofford is that we have to take chances and NDSU can play very conservatively.
