    Crazy stat from Saturday night in Marshall.

    SMSU had a 7-0 lead with 11:38 in the 1st. From that point until 1:38 in the first (a 10-minute span), CSP had 23 plays for 100 yards, while SMSU had 1 play for an INT. That stretch could have really swung the momentum, but CSP scored just 3 points.

Got to take a pic before kickoff and then I came up at halftime and visited, only to find he was hittin the sauce a bit..this was not chocolate milk but instead he was having a nice beer. I immediately got a little jealous. Couldn't have been a nicer day at the KO..
    Gasp!

Augustana had a more balanced attack with 161 rush yards, still I expect the Beavers will win a minimum of 7 games, they're a good team with 2 close losses. Went to game a visited with my big buddy Witt!

    I wouldn't say this about any other opponent, but Augie yielding only 29 points to Bemidji is a victory of sorts. The Beavers' passing game is so surgical. I think their coach should pick a game on the schedule and throw the ball on every down of the game and see what happens, at least for a half.

    Alt is easily the best QB in the conference, and Beaulieu's combination of size and athleticism makes him almost impossible to defend.

    I know Bemidji is 0-2, but they should be favorites in all of their remaining games. Could still make the playoffs.
    I was wondering why they were trying to run quite so much in the first half also. They had 15 carries for 12 yards gained..a few times running on back to back plays, before punting. Augie is a top team against the run..not to mentioned BSU couldn't run against Mankato a week ago anyway. Maybe run the ball about once out of every 5-6 plays..or less..just to keep the idea out there that you might..and I don't mean bringing in 17 at QB, because that makes the playcall obvious.

    I bet BSU targeted Beaulieu (#19) at least 20 times on Saturday. He caught 12 balls but had an equal amount thrown his way that Augie disrupted. They were very physical with him..to the point it felt like they didn't mind if they got a PI..as long as they were able to disrupt the process. The refs let the teams play in what was a very physical contest. There's a rivalry that's bubbled up from these games they've played....4x in the last 3 season..with the teams splitting the results.

    I will speak more about the MSU vs UMD tilt on the pod. Interesting first quarter. After that..no so interesting. Mavs are 2-0 though.

    Methodical win by the Coo on Saturday. Glad I got to catch the 2nd half. Ugly at times but USF was committed to controlling the line of scrimmage and draining the clock. I expect them to take care of business in St. Paul next week before the schedule steps up dramatically.

    Not sure what it's going to take or to build something competitive at Minot in the NSIC. They looked.... not good. 88 yards of total offense and only 8 first downs on the day. Props the Coo defense but that was brutal for the Beavers.

    I thought the Bulldogs were atrocious. Credit to the Mavs for taking advantage of a lot of Bulldog mistakes, but I was thoroughly unimpressed with both teams during the game.

    Also, I won’t go too hard on the broadcast as I am sure it was students and/or volunteers doing their very best to allow me to watch a D2 football game on TV for free, so I appreciate all of their efforts. One thing that was amusing, however, was that they were having one hell of a time with the score bug. It wasn’t on screen for most of the first half, then appeared with the scores flipped. Once they got the Bulldog score squared away, they kept goofing up the Maverick score. I think what was happening was that they were try to change down and distance and accidentally changing the score instead. It was a source of constant amusement for my whole family. One piece of constructive criticism I’ll give is to change/speed up the replay transitions. They had this Landcow head that would appear on screen, do a 360 spin, get an extreme close up, then fall away. It was a little obnoxious, but the main problem was that it took FOREVER and happened both coming in and going out of replay. They were countless plays that we missed part or all of because the Landcow head was still on the screen. They need to find a much faster transition in and out of replays. That said, again I appreciate that we live in a time where D2 sports can be viewed on TV/streaming at all.
    That may have been the most entertaining part of the whole game. It became a bit of a drinking game, every minute the game info display was actually 100% correct, take a drink. At one point, the clock had 10 extra minutes for quite some time. And the score was 4-3 or something like that. The PXP guy was the SID. Not his normal role.

    MSU has a ton of team speed, especially on D. They aren’t pretty on offense at all, but that D is starting to figure it out. Vaval would have 2 punt return TDs this year if he didn’t fumble on the 2 after taking it back 65+ against Bemidji. He’s got elite speed and was all over the field against Duluth. But I believe he is one of the guilty parties that dropped a pick. Must be why he’s on defense…

    Awesome job by vikes qb2. Best qb play I've seen in the Nsic in a while. I know a lot of people get excited about the big stat guys that throw the ball up for anyone to catch but they don't win in the end. This is the kind of composure and awareness and accuracy you need.
