Re: STATS FCS Football Article - Biggest FCS Games for 2019

If they beat us it's better. The final result has been better but it isn't a fertile recruiting base that makes NDSU so good. I agree with ISUBU. It's the rabid fanbase they have that makes recruiting easier. demographics and tradition favors them getting the best players in their region. ISU has t...

Re: Kevin Glenn retires

impressive career and playing the QB position until he was was 40 ... never made the NFL, but still impressive ... "Known as the first player in CFL history to have been a member of all nine teams, Glenn threw for nearly 53,000 yards along with 294 touchdowns in 268 career contests." Curious what ki...

Tnx for sharing the article! Big10 just makes me vomit anymore. I listen and read about the Illini and Smith...and what a freaking waste of everything. The only redeemable thing about the last few years....the Illini has been dirt. I am ready for the Dakotas to start taking a backseat in the MoVall...

Re: At Western Michigan 2021

I hadn’t yet comment on this, but I really like this game for a number of reasons. Our future non-conference opponents/schedule is great. Hats off to whoever it is that is finding ways to get these deals done. Wisconsin, Iowa, U if I, NIU, Western Michigan.....all great road trip games and intrigui...

Re: Where dey go?

Times have changed .. Spack is old school and can wear players out with his demanding he is. If there is area he needs to work on .. it is here. True. But you have to anticipate the allure and do your best to retain. Also, are you saying that these players left because Spack was too demanding and w...

Re: At Western Michigan 2021

This game replaced the win over Appalachian St as my favorite Redbird game. It remained my favorite for three weeks tough call ... blocked XP in OT to win on road against a perennial playoff contender .. Appy St game was a break thru game for Spack era .. even though I am of the strong opinion, the...

That's right, we DID get through there. I only remember the NH game. While that NH game was awesome, for me it was the EWU that made me think we had a shot at the whole thing that year. This ! Up 25 after 3 qtrs, we steam rolled those guys on their own field and then put game on ice in Q4 to win by...

Re: ISU over NIU listed as a possible FCS over FBS upset

Just did a little more research on their OL .. they lost 4 of 5 starters .. all but their RG. Liking our chances a whole lot more now. Even if the transfer QB gives them a lift, their offense has a lot of new pieces .. QB, top 2 WRS, TE, and 4 of OL. So if they go with transfer QB, they return just ...

I do not look for their offense to be the same as it was last year. I expect Grad Transfer Bowers to be their QB when we play them. It will be hard to prepare for a new system with no film and a new QB. There OC is familiar to us (SDSU) but does have different weapons. I like our chances though... ...
