    Re: Carson Wentz

    I wonder if they would still make that change now. It seems as if the threshold to change started high and then went higher about week 3. That was likely OPI but it wasn't an egregious miss.

    The referee was from the east coast. The rest are likely dispersed throughout the B1G/MAC/MVFC footprint. The two I know are from Ohio and Indiana.

    I don't know the R but I knew a couple other guys on the field. One was working his first game in Fargo and the other had worked there many times. The announcers made a comment about the crew working...

    Correct. A face mask foul applies if the opponent grabs any helmet opening or face mask and twists or pulls. That includes the opening where the head goes into the helmet. If the official determined...

    Re: A new and better FBS thread

    I would be surprised if we would go the MW route. It's outside of our recruiting footprint which is important for a school like NDSU. Fargo is remote from everyone but the MAC is at least in the...

    Re: UNI Post Game Thoughts & Discussion.

    I don't remember the play where the runner's helmet came off. Helmets pop off all the time because players don't always wear them tight enough. Unless you saw the defender grab a helmet opening (face...

    Re: UNI Post Game Thoughts & Discussion.

    Do it within the rules or be willing to get flagged if you cross the line. Coaches often tell players to play to the whistle which he means play the entire play. The problem with that is the play is...

    Re: Carson Wentz

    I believe the rules and philosophies are similar between the two. NFL tends to get a little more technical on some things but PI seems pretty consistent between the two to me.

    PI a very subjective...

    Both are valid and could be applied based on the overall circumstance. Bottom line is don't start something if you don't want to possibly get flagged for it. And don't retaliate because you both may...

    Re: UNI Post Game Thoughts & Discussion.

    If it's just pushing and shoving not related to the play (applies if started before play is dead) offsetting unsportsmanlike conduct penalties are usually pointless. They are probably directed to get...

    Interesting. Decent team in a "suburb" of Muncie. Don't know anything about him, but we were supposed to have them next week. Our game was switched though. It would have been fun to give him grief...

    Re: NDSU v UNI - Homecoming Rivalry Week!

    The truth to that statement though is it would be a very different story if the current NDSU team had to play that schedule each season. They've been good and had great results against good P5 teams,...

    Thank you for your fun candor. 90% of what people think are incorrect calls are actually correct. It's the nature of the beast though and the officials don't care about fan opinions. They care about...

    I think they are trying to make the threshold so high to overturn. It's needs to be obvious like the NFC championship game where nobody would disagree. Calls like PI are generally best left on the...

    Officials are graded on every call especially at the NFL level. Why would they risk a downgrade to "balance" things out? An official gets 4 or 5 downgrades a year they likely don't get a postseason...

    They can't hear you on the field even if you are in the 5th row. Their focus is on the field and you just zone out everything behind you. It really is bizarre. And in a noisy stadium it's all muffled...
