  1. Maybe if they would have started Joe Burrow they would have been in!
  2. Agreed. Also, think Dom is the leader of the pro-FBS mop so his job holds more clout nationally.
  3. This couldn't be more spot on. I realistically watched 30-40 college football games this year ranging from NAIA to FBS and this game was as close to the NFL as you will find.
  4. I love upsets. I follow Minnesota profesional sports and UND football. Every win that "my teams" get is considered an upset. I am simply being realistic. The NCAA is a business driven by money. If the figures don't match up, we will never get an expanded playoffs. If they can make more money by expanding, then they will expand until they can't anymore. I think what upsets UND fans the most (besides NDSU's success because its a rivalry and no one wants their rival to succeed) Is the unrealistic fans that think if NDSU transitions it will be smooth and butter and they will continue their dominance. I'm not even going bring up the "We want Bama" crowd.
  5. Ya ya ya "Any given Saturday..." Yadayadayada......... If FBS playoffs go to 8 teams or 12 teams it is simply because they will make out better financially. Everyone was excited when it went to 4, well the semi final games have all been complete snoozers. If they expand and use an auto bid format it will be even worse. I'm not against them expanding, but simply take the best 12 teams in the nation. If that means 4 SEC teams and 4 B10 teams, well if they are the best they are the best. Also, Utah isn't in the same category as Houston or Boise St. They are a P5 team. I'm just waiting for the P5 conferences to give the middle finger to the NCAA and break off. The group of 5 conferences are just FCS schools with an FBS title. The MAC and the MVFC are pretty similar.
  6. Dom is a beat writer. He's an NDSU beat writer who is under the thumb of the NDSU coaching staff and doesn't say anything without getting the "ok" from them. If you don't believe this, your delusional. He does a fine job covering ND HS athletics, but once he enters the FCS territory, well then he isn't an unbiased member of the media. He is is an NDSU homer, which is smart for his current job.
  7. Unfortunately, I agree with this. I'll be honest, this game doesn't look good for the good guys. Really just doesn't feel like this team has that special something that it will take to bring down the Bison. I don't hate anything we are bringing to the table, but I don't love it either. I still think this is a playoff caliber team if the OL continues to make strides and Otis can be Otis. Defense is pretty salty. I just don't think we have the dudes to keep up with NDSU
  8. I am still absolutely baffled he hasn't left for bigger and better things. He is scary good.......
  9. I hope your right. I'll tip my cap to the Bison in that regard. Their fans are compared to the likes of UND hockey
  10. Is anyone else worried that the NDSU herd will take over the Alerus and give them the home field advantage or am I the only negative one here.....?
  11. I would say that is correct. The fact that he didn't just choose NDSU right away shows that there was interest in UND. He also went to a couple UND games and on an official visit, while liking many UND related tweets. Why would he do that if UND didn't have a shot?
  12. I mean obviously we all wanted him in the right shade of green, but this is a case of NDSU not screwing it up. His dad played for NDSU. He should have a desire to play for them.
  13. After Zavalney committed to UND.
  14. I've heard the same thing. It's not hard to see where my fandom lies, but from the outside looking in it has been obvious to see that Entz isn't the coach Bohl or Kleiman is. He has brought a level of ignorance and cockiness that wasn't there before. I'll be honest, for as much as I dislike NDSU for the simple fact that's how I was raised, I respected the hell of of them and their coaches when they were in their hayday and they didn't even drive me that crazy because they were doing things the right way. That's not the case with the current NDSU program and well I believe we are all watching an empire fall because of it......
  15. That could very well be true. I know he came to camp and tore it up here
