    The score was 9-0. That would have made it 9-7. The rest of the is different after that.  Heck had it happened later in the game I might be more inclined to give it more value.

    The official guy on Bisonville gave a nice explanation for how officials handle that call. Had they called it a fumble, I dont think anyone would have had valid grounds to complain

    Sorry I was still talking about the game from my younger years.

    I found the game I was looking for.  It was 1982 against Virginia Union.  I was wrong in that they didn't win the NC that year.  Here is the write up from NDSU football guide.  looks like SU was down 6 with a couple minutes left when the inadvertent whistle occurred.  

    1982 NCAA Quarterfinal FARGO, ND--North Dakota State hosted an NCAA playoff game for the first time since 1977 and the Bison were rewarded with a scary 21-20 opening-round victory over Virginia Union. The Bison scored two fourth-quarter TDs including a 1-yard run by Jeff Willis with 1:06 remaining in the game to pull out the win. NDSU trailed 20-7 early in the final stanza before holding the Panthers inside the Bison 40. The Herd then marched 59 yards in four plays with Mark Nellermoe hitting two big passes in the drive to Stacy Robinson and Jeff Conley. On the next possession, the Bison marched 80 yards in 16 plays for the game winner. The series was marred by an inadvertant whistle by an official on an apparent Virginia Union pass interception, and the ball was returned to the Bison on the Panther 14- yard line. The Bison scored four plays later. Virginia Union scored fi rst and had a 12-0 lead before the Bison's Jim Dick blocked a punt that was downed on the Union 2-yard line. Nellermoe took it in from the 1 on the next play.

    Hmm..I wasn't around back then.  But I just looked at the playoff brackets from every natty the herd won in the 80's and 1990 and they didn't win a single game by 3 or 4 points.  Could have always scored another late touchdown or something afterwards.  It happens.

    I'm thinking football had a lot of goofy stuff back in the day, a lot of which probably went fairly unnoticed since no replays.


    Might have a flawed memory but will look for it. 

    did they win any by 5?  I remember 7 points the other way would have sealed it.

    Trey Lance threw a swing pass that was clearly backwards behind the line of scrimmage - the receiver dropped the ball and the defender picked up what clearly should have been a fumble and had a clear path to the end zone.  Ref's called it an incomplete pass.

    I remember a playoff game in the 80's or 90's in Fargo where SU was down 4 points or so with a few minutes left. 

    SU qb got hit as his arm was moving forward.  D Lineman picked ball off in mid air just as ref blew whistle.  D Lineman was rumbling for a TD when a ref blew whistle.   Ref was calling incomplete pass because arm was moving fwd.  Inadvertent whistle and dead ball.  Jumped the gun just before the player picked it off.  SU went down and scored.  On the NC that year

    Nonsense. The worst call of the day was the missed PI in the end zone against ISU. Had the refs gotten that right it might have been 3+3+7=16 and ISU would have been in position to possibly win at the end.

    what math is that?

    Wisconsin has over 90.

    Those are just the rowers on the website roster.  They may report more.  According to this Omaha W-H report, Wisco reported 176 members on its women's rowing team in 2018.

    A young woman I coached in basketball went to Wisconsin.  She was actively recruited for rowing once she got to campus because she had the right body type for it.  I didn't realize they had so many on the team.

    I believe she was offered some scholarship money

  6. Got in and got tickets but it was a mad house.  Tickets said available but gone when chose them,  tickets secured but then went away somehow.  Twice it said I had the tickets but glitched during the payment process and kicked me to a waiting screen and had to start over when it came back.

    Missed on lower bowl.  Went away too fast.

    Ended up in 204.  I will second that it was very stressful.

    I think that was part of the problem that Johnson sold the hit a little bit. PJ wasn’t putting on a show at all like it or not that’s how he is. He is the first one out there like that anytime one of his players go down. The situation just looked really weird because of how quick Johnson popped up.

    That's just how he is - that is correct.  He's always putting on a show and I do find it annoying.  Just my opinion

    I don't know that it makes a huge difference but that Johnson drop certainly is one that you can look back on. Weird thing is PJ had already checked on a few guys who were down earlier in the game just like that and he has always done that. They tried to say he ran out their too fast that time but he pretty much always gets out there like that with an injury. Seemed like it was just a convenient excuse to throw the flag on the Gophers since they had already thrown one on Iowa after that play.

    Johnson was standing up by the time PJ got there.   There was no reason for him to run on the field.  He got excited because of the late hit and was putting on a show like he always does.

    PJ is in the big ten title game if the Gophers show up for the 1st half at Iowa. I was really worried when Annexstad got hurt during fall camp because I thought he was the best option at QB. Better arm than Morgan, bigger, faster, more athletic, etc. Morgan proved himself though this season. He was much more confident and showed a stronger arm. The biggest thing though might be the intangibles as everyone raves about his leadership abilities. Biggest thing for him to continue to progress is get better at feeling the rush and he must improves his pocket presence.
     Lance is definitely a better runner than any QB the Gophers have right now Kramer would be the closest as he is very athletic. Gophers don't have a whole lot of true QB run reads in their RPO offense though. Lot of fans think the QB is supposed to pull if the DE crashes each run play but that just isn't true. Gophers have maybe 5 run plays a game where Morgan is truly supposed to read the backside DE. Lance is doing a great job for NDSU and the Gophers have a great group of 4 QBs. The most talent and depth their QB room has seen in a long time.

    PJ might be in the Big 10 title game if he doesn't run on the field and get a 15 yard penalty when Johnson get's knocked down near the goal line.  I would like to see what might have happened if Iowa had to start from their own 7 rather than the 22.

    Really disappointing to read racial comments on this blog. Opposing coaches, TV commentators, and avid fans often complimented the WR corps as a strength of UND this year. It didn’t matter that they were white. The were athletic, sure handed and could run. They beat out others, regardless of color, for playing time. They earned it because they were better. The often were obviously better than the DBs covering them one on one, regardless of color.  I hope the coaches can recruit another Wanzek or Maag and I don’t care what color his skin is.  We’ll be a better football team with another just like them.  Adam Thielen is an all pro, Laquon Treadwell got cut earlier this year from the same team, and it has nothing to do with skin color.  And that would be the truth for you to handle geaux-dummy. Don’t have time to listen to your racists comments .....Go Sioux, Go UND, Go Bubba

    I would like to say again - our WRs as a group was a strength for us this year.   We were lucky to have Wanzek, Toivonen and Maag and they were/are tremendous players.  

    We had our season tickets next to some of the Wanzek family over the past 4 years and they are exactly the kind of people we want associated with our program.  Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncle, siblings (I believe) and cousins were at all of the home games and many of the away games.  We are lucky to have them connected to the program also.

    So what are the thought on this kid? Obviously SUU wasn't very good, but how much of that is on the QB?

    I didn't think he was very good against us. Missed a lot of throws.  Here is his stat line against UND.

    SUU - Passing
    Player Cmp Att. Yds. TD INT Long Sack
    HELBIG, Chris 24 42 258 1 1 28 4

    It can be other than that.   Maybe it's  playing time.  That may get a kid to pick a higher FCS over FBS.  Just a lot of variables nothing ever says a kid will always pick the FBS over the FCS.  

    Fully agree. Lots of reasons. Playing  closer to home, girlfriend, size of town, school size.........

    I wouldn't call rolling on the foam roller stretching, but that's just me.

    Honestly visually they looked slow and this is right before spring ball when guys have been lifting and doing "speed" training. The times were slow as well (if I'm not mistaken I think hand and a system were taken).

    Unfortunately his methods are out of date. Especially his lack of position specific training. A linemen does not need the same attributes as a wide receiver and vice versa. It seems you are a big supporter of his. I know players and coaches across the country and this just isn't it. The players I've seen develop across the country are similar to ours, but have a great strength training program that is up to date and position specific. That is why they are faster, more explosive, and agile than us. We aren't playing D2 football (where Baukol's methods were successful... we are playing D1 now). 

    However, I completely agree that players diets are absolute garbage. I've seen this and the dining halls are where the concern lays. Should have a food hall for athletes only to monitor diets for all sports programs (this is what the big programs have).

    I have a former teammate at UND that played a little in the CFL and is pretty plugged in with training methods.  He brought up the lack of position specific training with Baukol a few years ago at an alumni event.  Baukol told him that there was no need for that and that basic training was good for all players.

    There’s a whole lot of roster fortification that needs to happen first. 

    My thoughts on the team and coaches align with this.  We need to find a way to get more high end players in the program.

    When you factor in that many of our players had limited or no other DI offers and how small we are in the OL and DL - our coaches must do a pretty good job with those players to get us into the playoffs.  What we need to do is find a way to get more of the difference makers in the door.  We have a number of them but not enough.

    I think Danny found a new play last week. He would use JJ as a lead blocker for Kett right up the middle. Ran it 3-4 times and got good yardage each time. Not sure if we had run that play prior to that, we might have but we ran it a number of times last week and it was successful. 

    Give JJ the start as a senior but give the ball to Skokna early and often. Thunder and lightning, but I want to see more lightning early in the game.

    I didn't notice seeing as much of Boltmann as usual last week.  Was he limited or did I just miss him?  He did have a big catch and run for a first down in the 4th quarter.
