    Opening week just got a little easier

    Well it seems that NDSU's starting QB will be sitting out the first 2 games of the season.

    NDSU suspends QB Jackson for first two games of 2009 season - Kansas City Star

    While I for one like to face teams at full strength, it would be nice to have it a little easier with the new offense going into this season.

    I thought that Nick Mertens started all of their games last year amd is back again next year. Jackson barely played.

    So, basically they'll have to use their 3rd string QB, dating back to last season because it looks like Jackson played one series all of last season.

    We will win regardless of who is starting for their team

    Right you are Ken.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    It looks like Nick declared, maybe?

    Nick Mertens is the starter and will be back for his senior year. Troy Jackson is the back-up. Therefore, NDSU has only lost their back-up QB for the first two games.

    That's what I was thinking, but you never know, I guess.

    Just looked into it and it looks like Jackson was going to be the backup again. That being said Mertens shouldn't look to run the ball given the backup situation.
