I cannot wait to join "the valley" and instantly have every built-in excuse readily available.   "Alright class, put your listen ears on - it's 'the valley' talking point day.  Repeat after me:

That’s what she said. 

The changing narrative has me confused what I'm supposed to think about Montana. In 2016 the narrative was that UND was "lucky" to not have them on the schedule. Montana ended the season at 6-5 (

UNI still ranked in the top 25. They are at #22). Quantum  physics may be easier to understand than why they are still ranked!!

UNI has company...  New Hampshire 0-1. Still ranked #24

These polls are a joke.  NDSU is not the second best team in the country not with the QBs they have rumming out there.  Noland would be lucky to make Mayville States  program.   Props to them for winning on Sat but they are a shell of their prior teams.

So you got blownout by a "shell" of a prior NDSU team?  Interesting perspective.

Just a heads up, you don't need to come and defend NDSU every single time somebody says something about them.

The UND team that showed up Saturday still fears NDSU and the coaches called the game that way. 

Lose the fear; give due respect, but no longer fear. NDSU is beatable.

You should really read all of my posts not just the ones that you disagree with.

Strange to see UNI with the #1 defense.  Not sure about that one.

That is most curious, agreed. 

My pure speculation: Massey looks at how well a defense keeps opponents below their scoring average. Notice UNI is holding opponents nearly 27 pts below average (26.97). And that is best in FCS. < shrug >

I was at the this game, the game in 2019 and 2015.  Seats close enough to see players.  I didn't sense the fear in the players, the coaches might have been a different story.

My point was NDSU isn't what they have been the last decade.  Noland is atrocious.  Playoff game 2 minutes left down by 4, you trust him to lead you to a win?  They won because of their o line and despite the QB play not because of it.

Blow out? The score was 21-13 in the third quarter. NDSU added a couple late scores the made the game look worse than it was. 

Just shut up and go home. NDSU football is bad for FCS football in general, and although 3/20/21 was not the day, the sooner UND can knock NDSU off their pedestal, the better for all of North Dakota and the FCS in general. It will happen. Good riddance.

NDSU quickly made it a 28-13 game on the next possession (well a 7 minute drive). They kicked a couple of field goals after that because they wouldn't throw because they didn't have to. UND was fortunate Zeb threw a couple of picks in UND territory early in the game or it would have been a 4 score game at halftime. Zeb won't be the QB the next time they play next fall. NDSU may get knocked off their pedestal, but it won't be by UND.

Wonder if these two things have anything to do with each other... 

I'll agree they didn't have to throw, but I'd also feel comfortable saying after 5 games, they haven't shown any capability to do so.

Yes, we have been given many a gifted turnover this year. Teams have been very accommodating in this new conference.

A drive that benefitted from a 3rd down PI call, yes.

The only thing missing from the NDSU offense right now is the option as they will be a run 98% of the time here on out because they sure as hell can't throw it.  Where is Rocky when you need him:lol:

I'm a biased, optimistic UND fan, but I'm calling it now: These two teams matchup in the playoffs this year and UND actually shows up to play and the end result is different. Then we will really here the "this season doesn't count" excuses fly from the bizon fans.

We need to win out and we will likely have higher seed than NDSU or SDSU which would mean home playoff games.  Second shot in Grand Forks at Bison would be just fine with me.

You guys got yourselves a cute, little football team. Just keep trying and, by golly, one day they'll be a real football team.

Cool - thanks for the insight. Wonder when NDSU will get a “real football team”, cause they don’t have one either.
