    UND - Sam Houston Game Day Thread

    I used it last season and I did have to identify my satellite service provider. But once you do that, all you should have to do is go to the ESPN.com. Click WatchESPN. On the upper right hand in the corner there is a round icon (black/white). Once you click there it was ask for the email or login ID and password. From there, you select the desired programming by filtering the date, event, (don't on click ESPN+). Click on "Watch". I watched UND Eastern Washington game last year with no glitches. I watched the game from yesterday again today.

    Last week, we could not pass, or stop the pass. What a difference a week makes. The team stood up and won with pass D and a nice TD toss in crunch time to get the go ahead score. Tank's run stop late in the game was huge. The DBs balled. The kicker delivered. Rudy called an aggressive and impressive game. Long passes and underneath crossing routes. It was humid as heck but that's life in Texas. To put icing on the cake: a trip to Whataburger! "Today was a good day." Ice Cube

    If you are FBS qualified, they will find you. I like John's grit and he is a really good football player. Brady came in and worked hard and carved out his own impact versus being lost in John's shadow. I think there are a few guys on the team that could play at a lower to mid-tier FBS team but not many on our roster. Most that play at the FCS level are considered either a little under-sized or a step or 2 too slow in the 40 the play at the FBS level. But, that doesn't they are not good football players. As we have seen recently, some guys in FCS can make it to the next level. Wisconsin Badgers have boatload of homegrown kids on the roster. I said it before, its about the level of competition that you compete against. Elijah Grady looked like Bo Jackson on his Hudl tape and should be a solid NFL prospect at this point had he stayed at UND. But looking at his Hudl tape, most of the kids he played against in high school had no business being within 5 miles of a football field.

    A WR's height doesn't mean he is a good WR. Just like a strong arm QB doesn't mean his is able to effectively place the ball. A fast RB also has to have vision (see holes before or after they open) and see running lanes that others cant see while on the move. There is a reason you don't see track stars and tall basketball players on a football field on regular basis. All take developed skill and natural ability. But being a good football player takes a whole different skill-set. We will win and lose with the players on our bus. Period. They just need to keep working to overcome shortcomings and to take advantage of our opponents mistakes when they present themselves. A good team will force their opponent into making mistakes by creating mismatches and creating in-game stress which is not easily adaptable.

    I would like to see Zimmerman get some snaps if the passing game is stagnant next week.

    Based on what we've seen, I can't argue your point either.

    I would say, Harris, Palmborg, and Carter would be better utilized on offense based on skill set.

    I honestly feel we have skill guys playing defense who should be playing offense.

    Its true...but I'm sure since he traveled, he wanted to give it a shot against UW. But I agree with you. I would not have played Brady at all in a game like this.

    LOL yes, pretty much. If you know the story of PV football, they went multiple years without winning a single game. They had once the worst losing streaks in college football in history. They actually wins some games now. When I say resurgence, I don't mean national titles. But they actually win a few games now. Hell, we only won 3 last year.

    its all about match ups. PV is going through a resurgence. They are getting decent players that are being overlooked by Texas, Tex A&M and U of H.

    There are two trains of thought when calling an offense: 1. Find the perceived weakest link and pick on them or 2. pick on the guy who YOU think is your best cover guy. Deion is regarded as the latter by Bubba so he can expect to have teams go at him, especially coming off of an injury. I wish Bubba and Rudy would identify an opposing DB to target and make the kid prove he can cover. I don't see that as part of our game plan, ever.

    UW fans are right to be in meltdown. Our D-line was eating their lunch most of the game.

    I don't like to call kids out by name unless I'm saying something positive, but our secondary is still a liability. Many said once injured guys returned, things would be different on the back end. I don't see much difference than last year after two games. UW could not effectively run on us, but they discovered they could attack us outside the numbers. and that was the difference in game. Its a long season and there is time to improve so we'll see what happens.
