    In addition to generating revenue, I think its also great recruiting tool. There are kids that won't get a chance to play FBS level, but would love nothing more than to play against them for exposure on ESPN or another major network and not to mention competition aspect. If I were a Chattanooga player, being able to play LSU in Death Valley on a Saturday night would get me excited. True competitors would seize the moment to build life long memories and possibly turn some heads with NFL scouts sitting in the stands.

    Didn't know about the K-State game in 2020. Thanks for the update!

    I am in favor of helping the UND program offset costs by fundraising in any legal capacity for knee braces, concussion caps, etc. I'd also like to see UND schedule some non-conference games against FBS opponents with deep pockets from the Big 12, ACC or SEC. We are not currently built to win those games, but that's how many smaller programs build the bank account. UT Chattanooga plays LSU this year, and they played Alabama last year. How much are we making from play Utah??

    Watching Falcons and Seahawks...it's amazing how much weight a yellow flag can carry. Two penalty flags on kick returns sank the Seahawks in the first half.

    I think Bubba is looking for guys with more height and range in the secondary to matchup against taller receivers. Chris will be a good fit at his next stop based on his athletetic ability and positive attitude.

    Chris is a good athlete and even better person. Any young man that smiles through adversity and always greets you with a smile and a hello, Mr.______ is okay in my book. All the best on and off the field. Our loss is their gain. He is also nice in the studio behind a microphone. This young man has options in life.

    It's only one game but JMU looked really good. The TE for Youngstown will play on Sundays as will the RB and atleast two of JMU's. DBs.

    Gotta applaud both teams playing in an ice bucket tonight. They both left it on the field tonight.

    Wow! That's why i love playoff football.

    A good punt returner is not always the fastest or the stud RB. Hence, Devin Hester or Ted Ginn of the NFL. Kick returner types have a ball skill and comfort level of playing in space and being able to see the field and ensuing running lanes.
  11. Who coaches special teams?

    I'm not saying he is a bad coach. I've met him and spoken to him on a few occasions. He is very energetic and likeable and in my opinion a good coach. But all coaches have to recognize when minor adjustments are needed. And obvious my, the players need to take special teams more serious and make plays in the heat of battle.
  12. Who coaches special teams?

    I said after the Stony Brook game that the punt block scheme needed fixing but many thought it was just a matter of our player forgetting or just missing his block. Proof is in the pudding. Our up guys don't know who to block and don't take a step forward to engage the rusher trying to block our punt. The kid on Sat came right up the A gap basically untouched to get the block.
  13. GDT: North Dakota v. Richmond

    When a team is on the ropes facing a knockout.. The mentality is, all we need is one break or bounce or call to go our way. In most playoff games, if you have a kick blocked, you will lose. In contrast, if you score on a special teams play, you will usually win.

    If reported is true. A few miles around the track. As in 10 miles since Josh had that much energy to burn after a game altitude. And a game suspension. But I don't think he should be kicked off the team or school. Those punishments should be reserved for those that are confirmed to have committed a felony (i.e., sexual assault, grand larceny, DUI resulting in injury or death, assault resulting in hospital stay of the victim, hate crimes) Josh was just drunk and disorderly in comparison.
