    This one aint going to be pretty. Stat stuffer game with lots of backups and true freshman playing the 2nd half. Good to be tailgating again. Attendance is going to suck.

    Bison: 66
    Necks: 7

    Watched WIU's last five games in chronological order this week. They're not without talent (Clint Ratkovich and Max Norris are fun to watch), but definitely lack a lot of discipline (expect them to come out like a bunch a of hyperactive kids on a sugar rush for the first half and be spent the second half). I don't think the high-tempo offense (the ball gets snapped with 12 seconds of being set by the officials) on first and second down helps them, and forces their defense to be on the field longer than they need to be in order for this team to be successful. They are a team full of chaos and lack efficiency. For example, they'll run 20-30 yards East to West on many of their jet-sweep type plays just to gain two.

    For a team that put guys like Bryan Cox, Rodney Harrison, Don Beebe, and now Khalen Saunders (dude looks huge for the Chiefs) in the NFL, and even had the great Darrell Mudra as a coach at one time, this program deserves better. However, that will not be happening today!!! I see NDSU winning 54-6, but I'm hoping for a Bison shut-out.

    Stay Hungry, Stay Humble!!!
    Hail the BISON!!!

    Unfortunately, the attendance might be the lowest all year due to 1 - deer opener and 2 - lackluster opposition. I fully expect to be be complaining about a lack of energy from the crowd by end of 1st quarter.

    The highlight of our day might be finding the mini donuts before the game. We were running late for our first game in the Fargodome this year and didn't have time to see if they moved somewhere else. That was the first time we had to park on the other side of the SHAC.

    Can we just call run plays exclusively? See if we can make this the shorted game ever?
