Iowa State is a very good FBS team this year. I am a little surprised UNI has as many losses as they do. They seem to be up-and-down. They get a quality win (or in ISU's case a quality loss), then lose a game it seems they should have won.

    South Dakota State - also a really good team when playing their best. They could have (probably should have) beat Minnesota who is now 6-0 and will be 7-0 after playing Rutgers next week (unless winless Rutgers magically gets their game in order by next Saturday). The MVFC is a tough conference once again.
    You obviously haven't heard the JMU fans crying at the top of their lungs how NDSU is not that good this year, the MVFC is just down.

    And I thought JSU fans cried a lot.

    To me those are the flags that need to be thrown to prevent an injury from happening. That's how you clean up football. Don't let crap like that happen. Those two plays being allowed is also what makes that punt penalty so frustrating.
    I agree with both of your calls or lack there of. The pile on by 94 could have been flagged and no one would have been upset by that. But that is correct of how a game gets cleaned up. The helmet ripped off should have been for lack of a better word a face mask penalty. This can as always with UNI was chippy from the start.

    It was 18-14 when I tuned in. Got my hopes up. Then, ugh! Just another painful trip to Fargo.

Unless you saw the defender grab a helmet opening (face mask, ear hole, outside edge) you can't flag it for a face mask personal foul. This sometimes happens in a pile of players or the covering official is shielded from the helmet of the runner. You can't guess that it was pulled off.

    I think I saw the play by 94 you are talking about. It jumped out at me live as a possible hit out of bounds. The runner was going up the sideline with him behind the runner. There was another defender between 94 and the runner who legally hit the runner near the sideline and rode him out of bounds. The contact by 94 appeared to be while the runner was out of bounds, but all his contact was against his teammate. I assumed that was why the official passed. Doesn't mean he was right or he will be graded as a correct call, but that's what I saw on video.
    From replay in dome it wasn't real clear, definitely not a facemask that was grabbed but appeared to me he got his fingers inside the edge in the eyes area of the helmet where it is a bit wider gap. Somehow in the process off the tackle he was able to pull on that edge hard enough that when Sproles bounced his helmet popped off but it wasn't an obvious pull and only seeing one replay in dome and I haven't gone back and watched TV broadcast. Sproles didn't get up for awhile but he did trot off the field and did return to the game, so obviously something didn't feel good for him for awhile. My memory may be bad on this as I kind of moved on and didn't think much of it I guess.

    Not saying it should have been called one way or another. just his hand placement in live action I thought it was a facemask but then saw the replay wasn't really sure after that.

    That hemet was ripped off.

    That officiating crew was just not interested in throwing many flags at all. I was worried things might get out of hand considering it was NDSU vs UNI.
