    Default Samford

    Friday Night Lights on Espn2. They look to be a quality opponent. Very good passing attack. QB left game. Backup came in and threw for 4 TD and can run. Only loss is to Georgia 33-0. They run a 3 down front. I think we can run on them.

    Default Samford Quarterfinals Preview

    Samford is a new opponent. For some reason, I thought that NDSU had played against their coach Chris Hatcher either when he was a college QB at Valdosta or when he was a coach at Georgia Southern or Valdosta. Looks like I thought wrong.

    Anyway here are their last game's notes: SELA Game Notes)

    Their QB is first-team SoCon Michael Hiers who is up for the Harlon Hill Walter Payton. Jabari Brooks, their humungous center (340 lbs) is second-team SoCon, along with RT Gavin Orr. The right side of their line is 50 lbs heavier then their left side - I don't think that I've ever seen that kind of disparity before.

    They have a very young roster.

    Fate whispers to the warrior: 'You cannot withstand the storm'. The warrior whispers back: 'I am the storm'.

    Quarterback is injured, backup played the whole game.

    I think you mean Walter Payton trophy

    We might need some threads merged here Tony

    NDSU favored by 12.5. Over/Under of 61.5.

    That spread isn't big enough.

    Wow, was I off this morning. I merged two of the three threads and corrected my original post somewhat. I'm just about to watch Samford's game - curious about their schemes and their new QB.

    Note: I kept a separate thread for posts that aren't previewing the game itself: Ndsu samford 6pm espn 2 friday night lights (bisonville.com)

    Yeah, that ball was punched out, but your point remains. And SELA was having no trouble marching up and down the field on them. Didn't SELA get blown out last year at some point in the playoffs? I don't think either one of those teams has a good defense.
