    Also looks like he was drawing a bead on 31 there.

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    Not a knock on Bruce, by any means. More of an impression on Shepperd's speed that we sometimes don't get to see, or maybe take for granted sometimes, or may have been limited due to injury in the past.
    Bruce is also carrying the ball. Iís bet on a taper finish if they raced.

    That said, I posted here a few years ago that Shep would make for a great RB. He would.

    Also, Ryan Smith started as an RB if that counts.
    Mcnorton screen playcalls were called perfectly in a lot of situations.

    We need to run more screens... In the right situations they are huge plays.

    McNorton better pass catcher. Bruce better route runner.

    DJ McNorton rush for 6 yards to the NDSU34 (Will Henry;Bookie Sneed).

    Sam Ojuri rush for no gain to the NDSU34 (Kash David;Kenneth Jenkins).

    Brock Jensen pass incomplete to Ryan Smith.

    Matt Voigtlander rush for 27 yards to the SHSU39, 1ST DOWN NDSU (Brandon Closner).

    Greatest screen play in Bison history.

    Ryan Smith was absolutely lethal underneath. A play NDSU has abandoned since Klieman took over and not sure why (fake punt, onside kick??). Not sure why Shepard isnt getting that route 2-3 times a game. Low risk, very high reward play...If you can get a defense to drop its linebackers just a bit or get them to close in the gaps the short crossing route is unstoppable with a small speed guy.

    The LBs are already close enough to the LOS due to the threat of the run. I think it was in his press conference after the SDSU game but someone (I believe it was Ross Uglem) asked Klieman if they're trying to push the ball more downfield this year based on Easton's yards per attempt and completion and Klieman said it's more what has been available due to the fact that teams are packing in so tight against the run and Easton recognizing that.
