    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Chris has said all week that we'd know what kind of team we have about 3 pm Saturday. Now he wants us to buy that they will improve although that is unlikely

    This is an excuse.

    He's suppose to say that as a business man on the radio. I'm sure somewhere on the radio contract you are told to do so, or be booted off.


    Just Win.

    No. Almost every program in the country can win in the face of that.

    If that's the reason we lost, it's so ******* pathetic. I feel we got a good first quarter and NDSU started flat. At same time we had injuries, they hit their stride. Injuries had an impact, but not the blame.

    This program folds at the first sign of adversity and has a long proven track record of doing so.

    Where did I treat anyone badly? Are going to call out Chris for the way he responded to a question from a kid? He and Jack are being very snarky in the reaction show. And I fully admit I would be worse.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    This thread is the equivilant of having a ****** day at work and coming home and taking it out on someone who had nothing to do with it, your family.

    We got whooped. Some people will *****, some people will cry, and some people will try and think of some positives. Just let people deal with it their own way and not call each other out for stupid crap like this

    Really? I might be ignorant but I considered him a journalist. Do you consider yourself a journalist, Chris? Serious question I'm asking because I do.

    I can't take this seriously. We don't win by 20+. Not gonna happen. Farniok should not have been THAT important. We did not give up 500 yards & 7.1 YPC because of Farniok. Unless you are saying we score 54 points with Farniok...

    With Bundrage, well, yeah he's good. Lazard, his replacement, had a 47 yard catch. We only throw screen passes, so unless you have some reason to believe Bundrage would have broken at least 3 tackles every play, I disagree with you.

    I actually LOL'd at his, "Did your dad tell you to ask that?"

    Agree and i don't think CW would ever claim to be a "real journalist" (whatever that actually means anymore). He runs a site that is FREE and is based on page clicks and that really only happens when the team is either good or the fan base has hope.

    250 some yards of pathetic, worthless offense. 50ish in the second half.

    That is NOT on injuries.

    No it's the truth, we had a plan that was working and then some bad things happened. Then isu's lack of depth came through (recruiting issues) and isu got blasted.

    When we were up 14-0, everyone was feeling good. Then 3 bad things happen and it's over for this team.

    I believe you described the team as "cowardly" earlier.
