  1. Bubba’s boner for ndsu cost us the playoffs in 2015 and could again this year. If ndsu would’ve done a home and Home, fine. But two on the road for a minuscule payment was dumb. A couple of Valpo’s in 15 and 19 could’ve gone a long ways towards building momentum and interest in the program.
  2. What potential new fan can look at that chart and get excited about going to a game, especially against UNC? Move the students to the end like everyone else does, and suddenly you’ve got some quality seats available. Then next year, more might buy season tickets, or at least come to a couple games vs looking at that chart and saying meh, I’ll watch at home.
  3. He would've had a decent amount of space. However, his hand went up so early that several players were at a slow jog by the time he caught the ball.

    I said UND should’ve instead scheduled another Mvfc team, lost, and had a resume to match western Illinois. Not sure where you get the ‘punished’ idea.

    Somehow you can’t see that five losses is more than four. And seven wins is greater than six. How many losses should be added and how many wins stripped away because of one bad loss? Evidently it was 2, because we were still a game better than WIU that year. So, again, Wyoming counted for nothing. tell me, is losing to a bad team by 6 worse than losing to a good team by 52? UND 37 ISU 31 NDSU 59 WIU 7 i see a couple bad losses there, but maybe that’s just me Using your logic, it’s better to lose more games, but not by very much. Maybe an 0-8 Valley team that lost all really close games should’ve made it that year.

    They had 6, count them, 6 regular season wins. Now I realize I never attended NDSU, but I was taught that seven is larger than six. Your argument would make some sense if the teams had identical regular season records. UND beat the number six seed, beat an FBS opponent, and had one more victory compared to western Illinois. Western Illinois beat 1 top 10 team from what I can find. Against common opponent NDSU, western Illinois got beat a lot worse. So again, UND got no credit for beating FBS Wyoming that year.
  7. When you get older, those boners will go away. As far as the game, let's have a fast start and never look back!

    Thanks for proving my point: An FBS win accounted for nothing when compared to an FCS loss

    To repeat, I said UND was penalized by beating FBS Wyoming. UND should have lost a close game to another MVFC opponent instead to better match resumes with western Illinois

    Over the last couple pages you just proved you had no idea how UND compared to Western, EIU, and UNH that year, but amazingly you still had all the answers. Typical Bison know it all just looking to argue. I don’t mind kids on my lawn; it’s those fat bison women peeing on the sidewalk that present the real hazard, especially at these temps.

    Nobody cares what your point was.

    My point was instead of beating FBS Wyoming, we should’ve scheduled another of those doggone tough MVFC teams, lost, gone 6-5, and gotten in the playoffs just like Western Illinois did.

    I believe that was the year a 6-5 mvfc team got in. UND was 7-4.

    Regarding your question on fbs losses....how about fbs wins? IIRC the year UND beat Wyoming, we got penalized for that win. Point being, the pollsters and playoff committee have an agenda, and depending on how a year plays out for their favorite teams, they adjust what they consider the most important criteria to judge on.
  15. If we can outscore them, I like our chances..

    The Jacks have two ‘quality losses’ and zero wins against top 25 teams. The next two weeks will be important for them to see if they really deserve a top ranking. So far, they’re the beneficiary of starting the year ranked high in the polls.

    I have this feeling if we don't beat Weber, and end up finishing 7-4, we are going to be left out for teams that are 7-5 with no wins any more impressive than ours, but they've got a quality loss or two on their resume. (if we play Weber close and lose, that will just be interpreted as boy Weber sucks and they are overrated, so no quality loss for us.)

    The guy moved Montana State up 7 spots after beating 2 win Southern Utah?? Makes UND’s win over MSU look better. But it sucks as it appears so much emphasis is put on blowing out bad teams.
  19. I think the better question is will they take a 7-5 team with a quality loss over a 7-4 team without that quality loss. And unfortunately, we all know the answer.

    Scheduling isn't our strong suit. The bend us over agreement with ndsu kept UND from scheduling another beatable out of conference opponent, and out of the playoffs in 2015. Same thing with this year's ndsu game, combined with only 11 games, unless we're able to win 8, we may be on the playoff fence. Depending on how this year plays out, Bubba's insistence on scheduling ndsu out of conference could result in him making the playoffs just once in six years vs. potentially 3 times in 6 years.
  21. Darwin’s Evolution; the original fake news.
  22. Well then I don’t think crowd control should’ve been a factor with two games in a day.
  23. I don’t know when the UND noon kickoff was decided, but Crookston played Mankato in the Alerus Saturday evening due to poor field conditions in Crookston.
  24. Good points. Although, if his aspirations were to work as a Carny, I think he would’ve gone to ndsu.
