OMG!  Another loss!  

Did you know that was their fourth loss since 2011

Funny, it also equals the same number of national championships since then, and one less than the Jackholes had last season alone.

Typical NDSU fan. 

Talks a big game but when things don't go their way they take their ball and run home crying.

Seriously, Montana. That is a bad loss.

Typical (enter any FCS team not named NDSU here) fan.

Their own team can't beat them, so they have to relish when another team finally does.  That's the definition of pathetic right there, not to mention it just illustrates how terrible their team really is.

Losing to #12 in the country on their field on the season opener is a bad loss?  Doh-kay.  

Get back to me in December when it matters. smiley95.gif

Yes, hopefully sooner than later I'll be putting Loserville, USA in my rear view mirror, watching you wallow in your own insecurity and self pity as I drive away. laugh

any early predictions for the Dakota Marker battle tomorrow? I got tickets to the game looking forward to going and checking out the new stadium renovations so far in Brookings.

I wont be rooting for anyone just want to watch a good game in a fun atmosphere. A great team's gonna win and a great team's gonna lose.

The streak is at 5 in a row for the Dakota Marker in favor of NDSU, but 7 if you count the playoffs (which the Marker is not played for) but SDSU hasn't exactly not competed in the series

Ndsu seems to be a bit down this year. An early loss and haven't been steamrolling lesser opponents like the past few years. 

Sdsu has moved on from Zach zener better than anyone could have imagined. 

I forsee a close game between two great teams. As far as predictions, I like to think Sdsu pulls it out, but I would not be willing to put money on either team.

 NDSU vs. "lesser opponents":

NDSU/Weber St.: 41-14

NDSU/Siouxage: 34-9

That isn't "steamrolling"?

 

I understand that SDSU is better than those two and they're playing at home, but NDSU has taken care of business when they needed to.  

I expect a competitive game but it's hard to bet against the champs at this point.

Maybe that is steamrolling, but in years past ndsu had such a great defense the 14 and 9 scores posted by the opposing team would have been 0 or 3.

I only caught a quick glance as it scrolled across the bottom of the screen during college game day, but I swear I seen that the NDSU QB was rated #5 among all QB's eligible for the upcoming NFL draft. Is this true, or was I just seeing things?

It's true...according to the opinion of a ESPN analyst...for what that's worth.

While NFL scouts at NDSU games are nothing new, their focus this year has been on Wentz.

Lmit, why does it feel/sound like there is something off with Bison this year?  Their defense sure seems inconsistent.  Listening to the game to the game today, it just sound like the same type of team we've become used to.

the only thing that was more unbelievable than what happened this weekend besides Michigan State was a garbage team like USD beating NDSU in Fargo.

I dont think it hurts NDSU at all as far as the MVC goes though, just a bump in the road. I have a feeling they wont be playing down to their opponents level the rest of the year. Thats a bad loss regardless.

wow things go from bad to worse for the Bison with Wentz going down with an wrist injury that will sideline him for an extended amount of time?

First off, I have enjoyed watching the Bison represent the MVC so well even though they are not my favorite MVC team.  I respectfully challenge the playing down aspect.  By my assessment they are at the tail-end of the Bohl era recruits/coaching and the Bison (overwhelming) dominance.  I've replayed (at least 4X) the incomplete pass with 30+ seconds left against UNI the week before, and could easily have seen the call being a fumble with a UNI recovery, which would have given UNI the victory and ended the home win streak a week before.  If it were merely a matter of "playing down", that should have been the alarm bell.  Too bad about Wentz, although I think his draft stock is overrated.  "GO JACKS!!!"

 I respectfully challenge the playing down aspect.

How do you say that after they completely "steam rolled" SDSU on the road in Brookings in every aspect of the game? Then they lose to USD at home? Especially with what SDSU can do on offense and to have NDSU completely shut them down but give up 24 to USD at home. It doesnt make sense.

But, hey at least the Jacks have 2 QB's for the time being, bet that is a problem NDSU would love to have right now :)

If they play up to their opponents how do explain the loss against Montana.

SDSU vs. NDSU is each schools biggest rivalry game. They get amped up and NDSU was more amped up than SDSU and beat them.

Every word Hawgchaser wrote is right on the money. NDSU is simply not the undeniable powerhouse they have been in past years. They are still a good team, just not the runaway top team in FCS that is heads and tails ahead of the rest.

Oh, and I agree. GO JACKS!!!

    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time 
    • I love my Helix unit also, and GPS has been a game changer for me. No more fumbling with my phone in the cold with apps eating my battery and trying to keep it out of the elements.    I miss the simplicity of my Marcum VX-1 but after getting my Helix dialed in I have no complaints.
    • SD resident opener was a wet one. Saturday I didn't go out. Sunday morning woke up with 4.5" inches of snow at my place a few miles south of Sioux Falls. Never would I have imagined we would be able to hunt in snow this early! The other odd part is that none of the weather people even hinted at any accumulation or even predicted any chance of precip. It literally just came out of nowhere.   Yesterday I hunted the entire day from noon to sundown and was fortunate enough to still have some snow stick around in areas.. My only summary is swamp country. I wore the wrong boots, wrong pants etc. Should have just wore waders would have been able access things better. My biggest mistake was not going far enough west and not far enough north. But there is a ton of public land where I headed and I hadn't been able to scout that way yet this year. Everything that looked walkable was wet it didnt matter how high or low it was. If it looked good at knee level it very likely had ankle high standing water under it. Ditches were full of water, some roads were underwater it was just wet everywhere and I don't see any signs of any harvesting starting any time soon. The water just made things difficult to walk as some areas I am familiar with. I could walk one side and work it good, but then get land locked because of water and have no way of getting to the other sides and ended up back tracking and walking a lot of same areas twice  which usually isnt productive.   I only managed 1 bird all day. I missed 1 bird my first walk probably at 12:01pm right after getting out of the truck. Just was slow to get the gun up and was way behind it. Typically early season lull, I think I just stared at the bird before I even realized I should be trying to shoot it. I downed another bird early afternoon and I knew it wasn't hit hard. Made a good mark on it and then my dog got a good track and pinned it down. As I went to grab it with my hand the dog released and the bird took off like a bat out of hell and we never were able to recover it because of all of the water. As soon as I put my hand on it, it just exploded and was gone. Was just an odd scenario.   Saw a few other hens but otherwise a very very slow day. I had spotted a bunch of birds coming out of some CRP earlier in the day that headed for corn. I came back an hour before sundown and hunkered down hopefully to get some pokes at them during the golden hour and they never showed up. I know the birds are around but all the crops in makes it difficult to hunt during the day.   I dont know what to suggest for people coming for the big opener this weekend. Its going to be difficult with so many crops in. I would say anywhere north of HWY 14 should be a little drier in areas but they have still seen some moisture the last couple weeks. Up near Brown county they are basically in a drought and down in the south eastern part of the state we are breaking yearly precipitation records. Harvest is off to a slow start all over. I know this weekend is the big opener everyone gets fired up for but if it were me I would be coming back for late season hunts and skip the circus this weekend.   I wont be hitting it hard any time soon will probably just stick to some sundown hunts closer to home for now. I have some gopro footage I need to get edited from yesterday got alot of good stuff on video including the bird that got away.   Good luck to those heading out this weekend!
    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
