Did you notice that the FSN announcers thought Steve Walker is a candidate for the HARLON HILL trophy?

We're not in DII anymore.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:48 PM
FSN announcers say NDSU is capable of controlling the line of scrimmage.

Say, who would have thought MN would have to resort to the pass against NDSU?

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:49 PM
Bison are pumped!

MN: no points. Field goal no good.

Bison turn!

Go offense!

NoDakSt

Any estimates from the announcers on the number of Bison Faithful in attendance?

gwendel

Travis got his pass!

More to come.

NDSU 1st down.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:50 PM
announcers say, at least 10,000. Maybe 15.

gwendel

Wurzbacher. fumble. Shoot.

MN ball.

gwendel

Review of Wurzbacher play.

Did he have possession?

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:53 PM
Announcers: If Bison get the ball back, this place will ERUPT!

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:55 PM
Incomplete pass!

Bison continue.

Poor Glenn Mason. Never gets any breaks according to announcers.

The place did erupt!

3rd and 4

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:55 PM
Yes! Travis White to the 37!

NoDakSt

Steffes. Short gain.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 08:58 PM
Complete. to heckendorf at the 21

Then steffes, no gain.

Steffes to the 15.

gwendel

Steffes slammed at the 13

gwendel

Good field goal!

Go Bison. Just what we needed.

We can DO IT!

No one else except NoDakState can multitask?

Someone must be watching TV or listening to the radio AND on the internet.

45-50,000 expected final game attendance.

MN second possession.

Return it to the 26

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:06 PM
I'm loving this. It's been a long, long week.

I hope we can finish this off, not just for our state and our city but because those assholes called us the "fighting Bison" in the pregame.



How about that bison defense? 3 and out for the bad guys.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:06 PM
3rd down.

MN throws it AWAY.

1st MN punt of the day.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:07 PM
Travis White.

Return from the 15 into MN territory.

Mason wonders, What are we doing wrong, say announcers.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:08 PM
steffes picks up 5 yds.

Offense. Defense. Special teams. Bison have done it all, say announcers.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:10 PM
Steffes 1st down.

Bison fans erupt.

Who'd have thought NDSU could have gotten a 1st down in 3 plays, say announcers.

White pickup of 7 to the 30.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:10 PM
Am I the only one who thinks Minnesota is already discouraged? Look at the faces of the players and the coaching staff.

It's coming. Three and a half more quarters to go.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:11 PM
Wow are those Bison fans loud today! I wish we could get that much noise out of the FargoDome.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:11 PM
No, Kevin. I see it too.

Announcers say, over 3 1/2 yards per carry.

Announcers say, Bison make it look easy.

Walker complete to the 14.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:12 PM
1st downs.

Bison 6
MN 2

5yd penalty against the Bison.
Still 1st down.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:13 PM
Interception by Jamal Harris!

Bison poop!

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:13 PM
Walker intercepted on a tipped pass. That's exactly what we did not need.

max_cool
10-21-2006, 09:14 PM
interception. bummer :(

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:14 PM
On a simliar note to my earlier post it should be noted that the Minnesota fans are rather quiet. I haven't seen the bison having any problems with calls or snap counts.

If we can stop the mistakes we will win.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:16 PM
Pinnix simply cannot run against the Bison.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:16 PM
That's right. We were one or two plays away from a 10 pt. lead.

MN to the 38 for a 1st down.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:18 PM
4th down ;D

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:18 PM
MN dropped pass.

Announcer is pissed at Wheelwright for not being able to catch a pass.

MN incomplete on 3rd and 8.

Way to go Bison.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:19 PM
The interception was nothing compared to White's punt return fumble on about the 30.

We're moving the ball for them.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:20 PM
MN.

Second turnover.

White lost it on return.

1st and 10 at the what 15?

Not good.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:21 PM
End of the 1st quarter. My thoughts are either we're really really good or they're really realy bad Because we are far from playing mistake free football, there's no reason this game shouldn't be 10 to 0 with the bison driving right now.

With that being said, what a game! I wish i wasn't nursing a hangover so I could throw a few back.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:21 PM
Bison ahead 3-0 at the end of 1.

But that's not likely to last. Time for the Bison D to step up.

Hold them to 3. Hey, maybe even scoreless as their kicker sometimes misses easy ones.

Nowhere to go.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:24 PM
Bowman injured.

Doesn't look bad, though.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:26 PM
31 yd field goal attempt good.

3-3 early 2nd 1/4.

Don't think we could have really asked for any more, though.

Cut the mistakes. We're home free.

Announcers wonder about Bison stamina.

Bohl says its a Bison strength.

kchats
10-21-2006, 09:27 PM
Bison appear to be the better team. Controlling both lines of scrimmage and Walker is outplaying Cupito.

As expected the Bison coaches are outcoaching the Gopher coaches. ;D

kchats
10-21-2006, 09:29 PM
Another great return for the Bison. If they can cut the turnovers out they dominate.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:29 PM
Majesky good return to mid-field.

Announcers frustrated.

NDSU dominating on special teams.

Good news.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:29 PM
Walker short gain.

Smart decision by Walker.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:30 PM
Heckendorf picks up Bison 1st down.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:30 PM
Walker not been hit yet.

All afternoon in MN territory, say announcers.

kchats
10-21-2006, 09:31 PM
Bison just look well coached. The players know what to do as Heckendorf showed there turning it up the field for the first down. Blincoe in for some carries. Oh to still have Symeon Cabel too.

kchats
10-21-2006, 09:31 PM
Bison defense and Steve Walker are why the Bison win this game.

gwendel

Short action play pass working.

Bison inside the 30.

Inside the 20.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:33 PM
Roehl has a Bison 1st down.

I hear Bison fans.

Gopher fans pretty quiet.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:33 PM
Bison to the 6.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:34 PM
Here's where we give the ball to Steffes. If I was Bohl I'd call a "take your 85 scholarships and shove them up your ass" blast with Rohl leadin the way.

NoDakSt
10-21-2006, 09:34 PM
Do the announcers sound impressed?

kchats

Touchdown Bison but a flag on the play. Great play maybe negated by penalty.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:35 PM
Holding on the Bison after a Travis White touchdown. Ouch. 3rd and 17

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:35 PM
Announcers on defense.

The difference between I-A and I-AA not that great.

TD Bison. Flag. Hold on Bison?

Bison poop.

15 yards 3rd down.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:36 PM
Walker sacked at the 22. 4th and a mile.

We're shootin ourselves in the foot.

kchats
10-21-2006, 09:36 PM
Do the announcers sound impressed?

No they are making excuses already. Saying the difference between I-AA and I-A isn't that great anymore. All week long we were told it was and that is why the Bison had no chance today. Penalties and turnovers hurting the Bison but they still lead 6-3.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 09:37 PM
Walker sacked.

Need another field goal, I guess.

6-3. should be 17-3.

Relax, Bison.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:37 PM
Kick is good. 6-3.

I really hope that doesn't come back to bite us.

NoDakSt
10-21-2006, 09:37 PM
Keep it up Bison!!

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:40 PM
We need another 3 and out. Or even better a turnover on this drive.

Let's start hammering the nails into the maroon and gold coffin.

max_cool
10-21-2006, 09:41 PM
this game is winnable, but we need to have at least 10 points on Minn if we want to sruvive the 4th quarter. Depth will matter

Take it to 'em Bison!

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:43 PM
The Bison have been training for this game since the end of last year. We're conditioned, and we're tough.

Speaking of tough, how about Dahl out there makin big plays with one hand.

Quite a tackle by the offensive lineman for the Goofs. No holding penalty called though. >:(

gwendel

Cupito incomplete.

Field goal attempt by MN. Not a good sign, say announcers.

NOT GOOD!

Bison still 6-3.

Upset in the making? ask announcers.

gwendel

Steffes up the middle for a pickup of 8.

Steffes across the 35 for a 1st down. Could have broke free.

We've been in tougher situations!

Kevin
10-21-2006, 09:51 PM
How many times have the bison scored in the finaly two minutes of the half this year? Remember Ball State?

Imagine if we can score and then get it right back after half.

End of half. Bison lead it 6-3.

One more half to go. No more mistakes and we win.

Cheers are for the Bison!

As they lead 6-3 at halftime.

Bison will OWN the 2nd half.

Kevin

Sitting at the half after watching a dominant herd I can't help but think of the 44-0 prediction in the trib and smile.

Even Minnesota's fans are jumping ship. I don't think they have the motivation to beat us.

Almost time for the start of the half. No matter what happens this team has made our state proud.

20-10 Bison is still my call.

Determination and grit, say the announcers.

There is no way the Bison lose this game.

Drago is the man.

Wait...this game is way to close to call...I want us to get a touchdown on this defense. I think we have scored against better this year.

And, I think our special teams should get a score as well....

If NDSU let's Minnesota Hang around . . . They run the risk of losing the game!

Wow, Walker's 14/19 for 151yrds already!


Yes, and if it wasn't for that trip he'd have a touchdown as well. And if Rohl had picked up that block there wouldn't of been that pick either. We couldn't ask for a better quarterback.

gwendel
10-21-2006, 10:42 PM
Are they booing Mason or the call?

Can't tell. Mason, Im guessing.

Kevin
10-21-2006, 10:42 PM
Also from the hole:


we better get going if we're going to prove Sid right....and we'll have to somehow eliminate the 6 the Bison already have.

I'm lovin it.

Travis White almost loses it, but recovers.

Announcers criticize his failure to protect the ball. But HE DID!

I think the MN run game got lost on the way to the metrodome, they only have 68 yards and it's close tot he end of the 3rd.

total yards right now
NDSU 238
Minn 155

Kevin

from the hole:


I'm a gopher fan. Mase is bad for our program. His game day coaches is spectacular on the side of bad. It's NOT FUN WATCHING his teams play.

I respectfully disagree. I'm having a lot of fun :)

Joe Mays almost kept him out.

Home from pheasant hunting in time to watch the 2d half....one thing I'm really enjoying about the Bison is how they look like they belong and like they've done this before. E.g. Heckendorf makes yet another great catch and he just pops up, flips the ball to the ref and trots back to the huddle. This is a great game and at this point, irrespective of the final outcome, Minnesota has lost. Go Bison.
