    2018 Season

    This is not new and has been the case for at least the last year or two. It will still sell out or be close.
  2. You don't think there will be a vote??
  3. Sue is the front-runner and it isn't even close. Hopefully it doesn't make the ballot. Agreed. Tons of positive reaction from kids at the game.

    2018 Season

    You aren't wrong and I was more just making light due to people's reaction to John always running up the middle and then complaining that he was only getting the ball on the outside. From the UNDFootball360 guys:

    Non-UND FCS Thread

    That's unreal, third consecutive season he's had a season ending injury. Hurt in the 2nd, 5th and 3rd games of the last three seasons. Actually was getting looked at by some scouts. Feel terrible for the kid, wonder if he applies for a medical red-shirt.

    2018 Season

    Alternatively: Fans - "Quit running Santiago up the gut!" Also Fans - "Quit tossing it to Santiago on the edge where he has space to operate!" That being said, I know the pitch play is run out of various formations and blocking schemes, but some of them leave a bit to be desired on timing and development of the plays. But it does give John a chance to read his blocks and find a crease, which is how he sets up the big plays.

    Well that and Cookus didn't play so NAU's offense couldn't do what it needs for them to win.

    2018 Season

    UND came back to win 3-2, sitting at 7-7 on the year. Could be a bit better but demanding schedule with a new, young team, I'm thinking coach is OK with it as long as they are learning.

    I read it as Washington as a whole was mid-tier Pac 12 team, not specifically their WR's. Maybe it was poor wording but I wasn't the only one who read it that way. That being said, homer's point is a pretty solid one and I'll still take Chico McClatcher with the ball in his hand over anyone from SHSU.

    Sam Houston

    From what I can see of your All-American WR's, Nathan Stewart had offers from Idaho and SHSU and Davion Davis had an offer from SHSU. Maybe not accurate, but it is what's out there. Again, not knocking them, they are clearly very talented and have the ability to win the game for SHSU, just looking at a little reality check here.

    Sam Houston

    I don't think anyone is going to be surprised on how talented they are. They are very good receivers, their numbers and accolades are out there and no doubt they could be the determining factor in the game if UND's secondary struggles. Just stating that we need to pump the brakes a bit before stating they are better than UW's WR, which is just a bit better than a "mid tier Pac 12" team.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    I don't think anyone is arguing with that point. If we're being realistic, outside of Augustana and some waivers, the solution is going to be UMKC coming back (with soccer) and UNC finally getting the baseball affiliation they requested multiple years ago. Gets both out of the WAC. Or NMSU joins, which was being discussed around the same time UND was thinking about switching conferences. There were discussions with NMSU by both the Big Sky and Summit. Once gives them a chance to stay at the FBS level in football only, the other gives them a path to drop down to FCS. The answer isn't that the Montanas and Idaho are going to magically decide to abandon the west and join some FBS conference that doesn't currently exist when there the financial benefit isn't there and half the schools can't afford it anyway.

    Sam Houston

    Is this seriously something people think? Sam Houston has better receivers than Washington? Not a knock on SHSU's players, their numbers speak for themselves (albeit at the FCS level, playing an uptempo spread offense in a weaker conference) but Chico McClatcher is a more explosive player than anyone SHSU has.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    1) Idaho signed a contract with LSU less than two months before announcing they were moving to FCS (in 2016 for a game in 2020), which in fact you tried to use as reasoning as one of the reasons they weren't moving down: 2) How exactly is that different than the situation that NMSU is currently in........? NMSU isn't exactly swimming in cash to pay large guarantees nor a destination city for teams looking to travel.
