    Gameday...

    In case anyone was watching they are in Fargo, yes fargo. Doing GD at NDSU. According to Vegas ndsu would be favored vs 70% of FBS teams. So for those of you who feel a bcs conf team should never lose to a fcs school needs their head checked. The reality in 2013 is that it is not 1985. Times have changed, a lot.

    What does this have to do with uni destroying us in every aspect of the game and putting up 60 yds of offense against iowa in a half.

    NDSU is the exception to the rule. And they are "ranked" better than 70 FBS schools, not 70%. Which means they would be ranked around 50 in the FBS. And yes, it is still bad for a mid-upper level BCS team to lose to an FCS school. NDSU is on par with a lower level BCS school or high level MAC/MW type of school.

    They lose pretty much everybody on their team after this year. I expect a much different NDSU team when they come to Ames next year.

    Yeah, that doesn't exactly make those 2 losses better.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    More lame attempts to justify home loss to UNI.

    I disagree. I feel very good about it now. In fact, this makes me GLAD we lost. Really shows the world that those FCS schools belong. I like it.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Your reasoning has warmed my heart.
    Now I hope we show Conference USA that they belong. It's a service, really.
