    I consider her mandatory listening, btw.
    Yeah I listen to Kelley every week with Keith B...always gives a good angle and thoughts. Playing valley teams in the playoffs just makes me feel so icky all week. I know the kids will put it all out there for whatever games we have left, just hope the execution follows.

    This being ISU's fourth consecutive week on the road won't be easy on them.
    Looking good Billy Ray!

    I think it's karma considering they didn't leave the state of Illinois until week 11. Now they've had 4 straight weeks of games outside their home state.

    I haven't listened to the sound bite but I don't disagree with that idea. Nichols had heavy lineman at guard and center and they would get shoulder to shoulder when they would run up the middle. Our DTs couldn't penetrate those gaps or or get the shoulders turned on the o-lineman. Gums would kinda get right up behind the big guys then shoot out either left or right once there was daylight.

    I will miss the ISU game this weekend, the first home playoff game that I will miss in this decade-long run. I hope that I can transport the mojo in my game shirt from the Twin Cities to the Dome!

    I was surprised he ran for only 77 yards.
    The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    Here's my hot take, Nicholls State will be a tougher opponent than Illinois State, and possibly, NDSU's SF opponent.
    Hail the BISON!!!

    I looked and this decade we are 5-0 in valley playoff rematch games. with only 1 of the games where we didn't increase the point differential.. average victory is 14 points higher for the Bison in the rematch game.. so not worried about this one at all.

    Illinois State game notes are up: https://gobison.com/documents/2019/1...s_20191210.pdf

    They are big on both fronts.

    I heard some purple people say we're going to lose to MSU.
