I am not any sort of football guru, but with all this discussion about nosegaurds.  didn't Moo U run outside using TE's as blockers as opposed to up the middle?

They went between the tackles a lot as well.

Outside of the first run it appeared they had a lot of early success running A gap power.  We adjusted by dropping d lineman down to cover the guards (which didn’t work) and they countered with running a bit wider.  They likely could have continued with A gap power in the second half and had the same success.

One good thing about the games prior to NDSU, the scoring drives we gave up were quick.  Which really IF the team is going to score, it's better that it's quick instead of a 11 play 8 minute drive wearing us out.  

If we only have one NG this Saturday, man this will be a gut check on defense.  Canady with a potentially significant injury too the way it sounds.  Ugh.

Just saw on Otis’s social media what looked like Jordan Cannady in the hospital for surgery. Hopefully nothing serious, prayers for the young man!

From what I understand, Canady will not be ready to go this fall - sad deal!!

I don't want to speculate on injuries, especially when the rumors I've heard aren't completely reliable, but I've heard he might not be able to go this fall.

Did we lose Canady in the NDSU game?

Didn't we lose a top-flight DB in a past NDSU game? 

Hmmm....

Lost a safety Zach Arnell i believe to a really bad cheap shot in that game.

Surprised Watson from NDSU isn't on that list, although I don't know his stats.  Wouldn't surprise me if Watson enters the portal.  But NDSU has been busier playing the last couple weeks so maybe his mind hasn't wandered to that yet and won't do it before the May deadline.   Have only seen a little of Watson but he looks pretty talented.

Tall and fast, but tends to have some brick hands (except of course when he's pushing off a defensive back right before halftime).
Not sure he's in an offense that knows how to utilize him. They way they try to get him the ball in space doesn't seem to work.

Good assessment. Fast for FCS but needs to take the oven mitts off.

If he was in the < ahem > correct shade of green, would he be slot and used more jet sweep action?
