Round 1 vs Nicholls (no bid bitching)

Recommended Posts

Line still is a pick 'em.  Surprised the needle has not moved at all yet in either direction.

UND had just 42 rushing in the first half vs SUU. The game turned in the 2nd half when UND figured out how to run it more effectively. If UND can't run the ball consistently Saturday it won't turn out well.

OL has to keep Kett upright.  Nicholls has some big dudes.  

CB's on an island and defending a 6'4" guy that can catch and QB that can throw and run.

Schmitty will need to dial up another game to hold down the running game.  We need some turnovers.  We need them to kick FG's since that is a weakness for them.

Pressure, Pressure and more pressure.

I was thinking over this 60% run and 40% pas for Nicholls' playing style and we just might do the opposite?

Weather or no weather, this game falls on #8.   Our offense has looked so much better the last few weeks because of his play and patience.  

He was rusty bs EWU and not great vs ISU.

Agree.  And OL needs to protect.  May not be easy.  If they can protect we should make good game and win.

They really need to contain 55 from Nicholls. He could ruin our offense.

Does their field have turf or natural grass? Does that even make a difference?

It is turf.

Before the 2017 campaign, Manning Field received a makeover with the installation of a brand new GeoGreen™ artificial turf by Geo-Surfaces of Baton Rouge.

I agree. A solid running game will help him out tremendously and so will play calling. His completion % has to be 40% lower when he rolls out to either side. If his feet aren't set it's not good. It is night and day when he is able sets his feet and deliver the ball.

Get Luke going. 

Get him enough touches and then pound JJ between the tackles.

Time to get playoff win #1.  

And then stick that locker room tent up their arses on the way out of town.
