Not the cleanest game by UND. There is definitely still work to be done. Need to protect the ball better. But UND was without doubt the better team today and was more disciplined than WIU. Now, t

North Dakota @ Western Illinois is a trap game if ever there was one.  Hawks coming off three huge wins vs ranked opponents.  First game on the road vs likely an unranked opponent. Outside in front of

Yes this was my point earlier. I still can't believe WIU got in over UND that year. Lets write our own destiny and not let the voters do it.

38 points does not do justice for the over 500 yards on offense ! Love this offense! Just grinded it out 

Obviously should’ve had one more score in there.

was this game ever any closer than 14 points after half?

No. Once UND got up 24-7, they never lead by less than 17.

It would have been nice to really put them away earlier in the game, we had the opportunities but defense struggled and a couple of bad turnovers by offense and special teams. Overall though, the game never really felt in doubt and happy to get a W on the road. Now let’s get the boys focused for a big game next weekend.

I'm satisfied with a win this game. This was the definition of a trap game. First road game, first game outdoors, first game against non-ranked opponent, big rival the following week. This had the trappings of an Idaho St. kind of situation but the team won.

This is conjecture, obviously, but I think this was a pretty vanilla game intentionally. The defense didn’t pressure all that often, we played a lot of off-coverage, and our offense was moving the ball well enough to not need to do much pre-snap. There wasn’t much in terms of trickerations, and it seemed almost like a preseason game. Hate week now, I think there will be a little more fire under their asses

Also it's time to "Release the Brockstar"!

I have more thoughts on this one too:

-time for Griebel to be replaced as a returner

-the screen game was definitely snuffed out

-defense didn’t get home quite as well in this one, need a better effort against a better OL next weekend

-for God’s sake, ball security

-definitely not the same energy as when they’re playing at home in front of 3500

-All said, as long as Bubba keeps doing the Griddy, I’m happy

during the game or was he out?

I take back my comment.  I didn't see a moment where he got banged up (thought there was a catch where he lost his shoe but that was Weah who lost his shoe during a run)

He did play, caught 7 balls for 47 yards.

When the camera went to Weah limping, I taught Weah was hurt. Then he adjusted his shoe!

Weah dinged his knee. Was definitely not 100% after that tackle where they took out his legs.
