NDSU Week
« on: September 26, 2022, 10:21:37 AM »
Well, another tough out opponent for the guins. Second one in a row, albeit with a week off in between! Should be an interesting matchup as we have been incredibly strong against the run and the Bison will no doubt look to impose their will in the ground game.

And unfortunately, they will.  Our defense will tire out again due to inept offense and playcalling!

I am never one to say run the QB. But I think we have to because our QB is an inconsistent pa$$er, is big and can run.  We need to involve him in the run game to create conflicts to free up Jaleel.

Nothing causes the NDSU defense any real trouble.  Over the years the one thing that has been a minor inconvenience for them is a running quarterback. It would be insanity to force Crenshaw to pa$$ from a small or nonexistent pocket.  To stay in this game we must get the ball into the hands of our skilled athletes with some space to operate.  Does anybody think that our offensive coaches can come up with such a plan? I certainly don't.

I'm on the same page.  But if you know your pa$$ing game is a sh!t show and all you can do is run, it's really our only option.  Now that I've stated that, he will probably pa$$ for 500 yards.

If we canít pretend to pa$$, we will be able to run. I donít care what he does, but, at least throw short pa$$es to the running backs, Tight ends or number 0.
Learn from the Kentucky game. If all fails, put in Mitch and let him throw a few times, then hand it off to #8 and #1.

To have any chance we need to throw the ball to at least an average level. Without that I think we are doomed. Also we need to get our athletes in space, not in the clogged up middle. Our athletes are faster and with more moves than theirs  and we need to take advantage of our strength. But it is not easy if we have no pa$$ing game. I think our defense has a good chance against them, but the O worries me. And we need some imagination on offense that sure has not been there to help. If Crenshaw can't do anything, give MD a chance.

I fully agree with everyone's comments.   We need to pa$$ the ball to have any kind of chance.  Crenshaw is not the answer long term.  We need a QB transfer in the upcoming cla$$.

hey guys! welcome back to Fargooooooooooooooooo  its Homecoming week, should be an electric crowd and plenty of tailgating beforehand!

NDSU's 4th quarter of Arizona and 1st half of South Dakota was embara$$ing, the OC was just plain stupid and we uncharacteristically turned ball over and didnt' tackle.

I would hope we learned a lesson, but NDSU is missing 1 All American DT and our All American DE had 0 stats last game so who knows.

Lakes, our two teams have that in common this year. I would still take your OC over ours. At least yours only had bad quarters of football in play calling... ours has had bad games going over the past two years now.

Coach said earlier this week how proud he is to coach these kids and they will battle hard.  Not sure why hr felt to say that unless he know how this will play out.  I think we all know how it will end.  He hasnít had a signature win yet.  With that offensive coordinator not sure he will get one. 

Qbís on roster:  Crenshaw, Davidson,  Blanc,  Brungard.

Not a strong group.  Is Brungard a D1 Qb? 

Who is ultimately responsible for the recruiting on Qbís at YSU?

I hate to say this but there is a distinct possibility that NDSU blows the doors off the Fargo Dome on Saturday.  They may pin their ears back and bring constant pressure from their front 7.  If so, it will be LOOOONG day for the road team.  The turnover margin will be something to watch.

To be fair to DP's comments about the fight the kids have, I did see that in the Kentucky game. The defense never gave up. The offense, well they didn't play the cleanest game, but they certainly tried... the playcalling left them with no option to do better though.
