    Sioux-Salukis

    As much as it pains me to say it I think that the Salukis are going to be a little to athletic for the Sioux. It will be close. I think the game will be more important for the Sioux to see where they need to improve against a very athletic team. It will be a good measuring stick but I'll say the Sioux lose by 7.
  2. I was at the game yesterday and I think that SIU could be saying the same thing. Their lack of dicipline not only kept a few Bison drives going, it really put thier backs against the wall with field position in the second half. It allowed the Bison to start on the forty on the opening drive in the second half. Than on the following kickoff it made them start at the ten yard line instead of around the twenty. It also gave the Bison another four down to score a TD instead of settling for a FG to be up six instead of ten. Don't get me wrong, the Bison played a very good second half and did look good, but I also saw SIU stop themselves. These penalties where all stupid penalties and the SIU coaches admitted they where undisciplined penalties that have haunted SIU all year. They to could have easily won that game by 17-24 points if they would not have stopped themselves in the second half. What are your thoughts on that nd1sufan? Just curious.
  3. Didn't know where to put this but a friend e-mailed me this game and I found it to be another good thing to do until the season starts. Don't know how many of you guys enjoy things like this but I found it to be pretty fun. The season on the game just started so its a good time to start. Just create a player, accept a contract and start playing. http://goallineblitz.com/game/signup.pl?ref=13252638 (If this post is in the wrong spot feel free to move it but it is the offseason so I figured the football section was going to be a little slow until August.)
  4. I believe the Banjamin commitment as well and if its true we landed a real stud. Kid could probably play nose guard as a freshman but the decision the coaches will have to make this year is probably redshirt kids who could play so we can have them as seniors, the first year we will be playoff elgible.
  5. Darn it. Why do such intelligent people have to read this message board? Gabe, you blew the cover off this one.
  6. Thank you Mel Kiper, Jr. Jr.

    Lennon gone

    I keep thinking about this and the WOW" factor anouncement he talked about a few weeks ago. I know they are unrelated but that was my reaction when I saw the headline. Actually I can't post my initial reaction but "WOW" sums it up I guess. Good luck Coach. Your leadership and coaching ability will truely be missed during this transition.

    Lennon gone

    Looks like according to the Herald, coach Lennon will be named head coach on Friday. Not good during recruiting. We where off to a good start too.

    chris kuper

    I'd blame the lack of defense (99 yard drive for a field goal after the fumble and giving up field position after Denver's punter pinned them at the three before the final drive) (and how lost they looked after Lynch left the game). Or the terrible holding call on Selvin Young's long run down inside the ten.(which was run to Kuper's side by the way) Or running a QB sneak on the final play of the game before the field goal when the defense had the middle stacked. Any of these. Kuper played a great game and its awesome to see him out there. I am a huge Broncos fan and even though they lost last night you can definately see this team improving weekly. They mentioned last night that the Broncos only have six starters out of 22 from exactly a year ago playing right now. I definately like where they are headed and Chris is definately a contributer to that. Keep it up Chris.

    DII Polls

    I agree with the crap system but no Concordia did not make the playoffs that year. It was the following year they changed the system to add six teams and I do not think they made the playoffs than either. What hurt you that year was that your win against Montana did not count for anything. And all the teams that made the playoffs that year from our region had a better record. Yes, you guys where better than Winnona St. but they still only had two losses going into the playoffs and snuck in and even won their first round game. Also, I am not sure but I would bet $$ you didn't beat Concordia by fifty.

    High Praise

    Gabe, which "numorous backups" did you start? I was at my fifth Bison game of the year yesterday and every other position besides Mayes and Roehl looked the same to me. The Bison did kick thier ass but don't try and make it appear to be the JV team that did it. Your starting OL played every possesion except the final two and one of those was a kneel down. The second string defense didn't come into the game until about seven minutes left. Maybe you just don't know how to read depth charts at an "advanced level" but your excuses for why it was only a 35 point game are starting to sound silly. The Bison kicked thier ass like they should have. Don't try to make it out to more than it is. Good luck next weekend.

    I second that. Thanks Siouxdonyms. Dan and Tony better look out.

    UND/UNO

    Ball game. Time to get back to work tomorrow, watch tape and correct the problems. Definately not our best game. They made some plays when they had to, I don't want to take any credit from them at all. There's a reason they are number one in the region. A lot of missed opportunities to put some points up and we missed them. Some of it was them and some of it was us.

    We need to get it back. Quick.

    UND/UNO

    That is not what we wanted. Time for the D to step up again.
  16. homer

    UND/UNO

    The D has made really big plays when it has had to. Lets go offense. Take advantage. I should say lets finish a drive. We've moved it, now lets finish one.
  17. homer

    UND/UNO

    Have to go for it here because we left three on the field earlier
  18. homer

    UND/UNO

    We need a touchdown now. Lets keep moving the ball and finish this drive.
  19. homer

    UND/UNO

    The word of the day in the first half is "missed". Sounds like missed tackles have hurt us on defense and missed opportunities on offense. The good news about that is those are attitude things and can be fixed at halftime. I hope not taking the missed three points doesn't come into play as a field goal there may have been alright. But Lennon made the call and he has forgot more about football than I know so I will definately trust his judgement.

    Those missed points could be big later on.

    Sounds like the kid made a nice catch according to the radio. Wow, this is the offensive game I thought it might be.
  22. homer

    UND/UNO

    Touchdownnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
  23. homer

    UND/UNO

    I was hoping that wouldn't happened but UND up front is not the typical UND defensive line this year. Hopefully we can find a way to correct that this afternoon. The talent is there though so hopefully the boys let it all out today.
  24. homer

    UND/UNO

    How does the crowd look? Sounds loud on the radio. Just caused a false start as I was typing.
