Directv channel 610. 623 is the alternate channel for future broadcasts when they compete for airtime with competitive Big 10 teams.

Well, it's going to be a long season again. I can tell you now they won't win a Big Ten game. Brewster went for it on 4th down and later scored the TD with 22 seconds left. Last year they would have been stuffed on that play with the luck they had. Hopefully they win the remaining nonconference cupcakes.

A year from now there will be some expectations that this team compete, and most importantly put a competent defense on the field. It's not helping that after retallying the national recruiting grades, Brew's second crew slid back about 15-20 spots nationally from all the ineligibles that won't ever see the field. Still better than any of Mase's gets.

Otherwise, a couple of upsets on the first Saturday of College football! Should be a fun season to watch.

The Gophs played well at times, but the defense didn't show much. One thing that is obvious is that Willie Vandesteeg and the rest of the pass rush is non-existient. And it's time to replace Ryan Collado at DB. I believe he was beat on both N. Illinois' touchdowns, which was consistient with his play last year.

Thanks, I see Direct Tv moved the Big Ten Channel and a few others from where they used to be.

Yep it's going to be another long year losing close games to teams from other lower level D.1 conferences once again.

Kind of interested to see how tonight's game is going to turn out against Bowling Green. Could be a tough win if the defense blows coverage and allows the big runs.

Did someone mention NDSU??

They just happened to win their first game of the season 41-6 over lowly Austin Peay.

NDSU had 453 total yards compared to 91 by AP who never converted a 3rd down.

Kole Heckendorf pulled in 8 catches for 179yds and three TD's.

The Bison remain at #2 in the Division I-AA standings even after Appalachian St's loss to LSU.

And that's your Bison update!

Looks like your boys rolled that power house of a team Central Connecticut State...... smile

Back on topic here it appears the GOPHERS may have turned the corner with an impressive upset win on the road.....baby steps but its a start.

I'll say 4 maybe 5 Wins on the year!

Go Gophers!

Nice game by the Gophers. Weber was very efficient and Decker had another nice game. Decker is going to put up some amazing numbers this year and next with Weber.

Looks like the defense got their hands on some footballs that got left on the ground by BG. Right now this team needs any sort of win it can get.

Yep, tonight they went on the ground and put two rushers over 100 yds. It appears they're pretty versatile and can go air or ground at their whim.

50-14.

Looks like their defense needs some work though. I mean come on, 14 pts? grin

    • After doing a little more research it sounds like 4.0 was a pretty good and reliable motor and used to 2006. Might be a good option if I were to hang a plow on front. And they also claim this motor could go 300K miles which makes buying a older model with 100K + miles on it less of a gamble. At least one that has been taken care of. The 3.8 doesn't sound to promising from 07-11. The 3.6 definitely has more HP and also might be an option.
    • Good luck.  Hope your efforts pay off.
    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
