Vindy article about 1993 championship season
« on: September 13, 2018, 10:24:33 PM »
Good article.  Everything they talk about is what is missing on current teams.  We were physical, mentally tough, had good defenses and special teams.  Tressel made a quote and says he went 9 or 10 championship games with 8 different QBs between the bucks and penguins. He said his staff prepared them and coached them to their individual talents.  Thatís what the great ones do.  Boy where we spoiled by

I would argue that NDSU looks a lot like out 1990's teams.

At least we have the memories of the 90's.  It was a fun time. We made our reservations to attend the National Championship game after the 1st play-off game.  We had swagger.  Unfortunately the 90's were a long time ago.

Good coaching hasnít changed.  Being physical hasnít changed.  Recruiting hasnt changed.  Motivating people hasnít changed.  Totally disagree.  Penguinpower is correct.

Just got my internet back. We're having quite a hurricane in North Carolina.

I remember that game well. It was wonderful! But very edgy during the last 4-5 minutes. I agree with Drew Gerber's comments; where we took the knee 3 times, but Tressel wanted to make sure there were no turnovers.
Yes, I was one of those berserk fans! Tressel did a wonderful job coaching his teams. He is one special gentleman.

That's great but football has changed. Nobody lines up in the I or wing T and wins anymore. NDSU does it because they sprinkle athletes in with the toughness. Also having the #2 pick in the NFL draft helps.

Bison had done for the past 15 years.  So can we.  Run a pro offense with running game and play action as your base packages.  Recruit accordingly.

Could not agree more. NDSU has run a clone of the Tressel/Heacock offense for years, with much success. In today's landscape it is so unique, nobody can prep for it.
