    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.

    Re: Gameday...

    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.

    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.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

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