Default FCS Playoffs- Can NDSU repeat...again?

The NDSU Bison have won 5 (five) straight FCS championships. Regardless of your perception, that's simply a virtually unheard of accomplishment in any sport on any level. As opposed to the FBS, FCS teams go thru a true playoff with 24 teams getting their shot. 16 teams are matched up for round 1 with 8 more earning 1st round byes. Those 8 hosted the winners of round 1 last week. 3 of them didn't survive.

The Bison again earned the top seed, having lost only 1 game this season. Howver, their 1 loss was against today's opponent- the South Dakota State Jackrabbits...yes, the school in the town I spent 20 years in until my move last year, a school 3 of my brothers call their alma mater and where my college years started.

I realize a lot of you, if you're going to watch college football today, will watch Army/Navy. But if you're so inclined, you have a chance to watch this huge FCS battle from Fargo, ND at noon eastern today on ESPN.

SDSU also has a TE named Goedert, son of someone I went to grade school with....as well as Adam Vinitieri's nephew..yes, their kicker

So, when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'
IMHO we finally have a POTUS that will get us back on the right track. We survived the community organizer but I am not optimistic that he will just go away and enjoy his ill-gotten wealth.
God bless our Troops.

Game was nothing like the first....

SDSU got off to a great start, driving the opening kickoff right down the field for a TD, followed by forcing a punt, then driving for a FG to be up 10-0.........and that was the last points SDSU scored.

NDSU had a 20 play 11 minute drive that just drained the Jacks D and the game was never the same. Even tho the Bison benefited from 2 suspect penalties on that drive, it was clear by the middle of the 3rd qtr that it was NDSU's day...........35-10 final

After the earlier game, I really thought SDSU had the Bison figured out ... and they may have for the first quarter ... after that, it was all NDSU... SDSU had their opportunities to make it a game just couldn't capitalize when it mattered...

I was surprised that the line was NDSU -15 prior to kickoff ... but as the game progressed, I recall why the bookmakers are who they are...

James Madison comes to town next.. .they destroyed Sam Houston last night 38-0 and got a bit of swagger to them... I know NDSU played them a few years ago in the playoffs and it wasn't much of a game ... all Bison...we'll see what happens this weekend...

Actually, James Madison beat Sam Houston 65-7! ....a 4 v 5 matchup yet
...after taking out New Hampshire 55-22 the week before

but, if the rabbits weren't going to win today, I'm all in for the BiZon running for #6
