Re: 2019 Roster

It's hard to keep a QB room full. Only one get's to play, and no one likes to sit. A team needs at least 4 to have a good spring or summer camp; we'll have 2 on the roster after the season. I bet we see at least one early JUCO qualifier if not 2 come in January. Just to have the arms to function. I...

Re: 2019 Week 11 - Western Illinois at North Dakota State

I didn't see the whole game, but think at least two defensive players were injured. Anyone know how they're doing? I did hear the radio guys say only 4 defensive linemen made the trip - that we're already pretty beat up there.

Re: Beneath the "Purple and Gold!"

Scott, you have your opinion and I have mine. And that's OK. I'm sure there is racism in the area and probably on campus as well. With that said, I think this article is painting the town and university with a pretty broad brush to insinuate it is the dominant trait of the area. Also, since they kno...

Re: 2019 Week 11 - Western Illinois at North Dakota State

Joking aside, it is very impressive how their whole football program operates. I could very well be incorrect in this, but it seems that they tend to bring in kids and develop them from the get-go rather than having to recruit transfers; and they do a fantastic job of developing these kids into grea...

Re: 2019 Week 11 - Western Illinois at North Dakota State

In many endeavors in life, you really only get better when you compete against someone better than you. True here as well. The biggest thing we (players, coaches, fans, administrators, etc.) could come away with after this weekend is a deeper understanding of just what it takes to get to the level ...

Re: 2019 Week 11 - Western Illinois at North Dakota State

Yeah. Apparently we are more depleted by injuries than I realized, so for me the main thing is to get out of the dome without any more.

We all know NDSU's program is miles above every other FCS school, and we're having a rough year (to say the least!), so staying healthy is the main priority.

Re: 2019 Week 10 - Western Illinois vs South Dakota

The Coyote faithful is yelling, screaming, and basically having a shit fit over this season and this loss. Heck, with all the rehab that is going on at the Coyote Dome, all the money being spent to upgrade facilities, they are begging that some of the money be used to buy out Bob's contract. You kno...
