How far did you honestly think this team would go at the start of the year. For me in the middle of the year I thought we were a top 15 team. After the last 6 weeks of this defense, I think in the top three. I just don't think Weebs has a chance this week.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

That is a good question, I thought we were overrated early after the SEMO win. When we climbed back into the top 10 late in the season I thought we had earned it and were legitimate. After Cat/Griz and being seeded #5 I thought was about right on. Now I definitely believe we are top #3. The top 2 remain there since they have a full season resume though.

When do you think fans will start believing what their eyes are showing them with this team?

Why do we keep going back to UND, Sac and even Poly that was months ago to show why this team ISN’T elite?

Why don’t we look at the last 6 games this team has dominated to show how this team IS elite.

When we beat NDSU in Fargo, will we still doubt this team going into the championship game?

Couple questions regarding Choate's pregame comments, where he said the Ndsu dynasty is not good for the FCS and also stated they're not on a level playing field due to FCOA:

1) Do you guys agree with him?
2) How much of a factor did his comments play, specifically in the level of motivation for Ndsu?

Looking at the bigger picture of competing with NDSU, what do you two think should be the main focus for the Cats and for all of FCS? Is it talent? Is it FCOA? Facilities? Moving to Fargo where you have nothing else to do but football?

With the MSU/NDSU game being a landslide with the score, what positives do you take away from that game for next season?

I'd say:
1) yes, I think there would be more attention to other universities if everyone had a shot at the NC, instead just being wrecked by NDSU and JMU. I think it might likely increase the fan base for all the top teams.

2) Partially, I think it's a slight advantage, but it's really not that much. If you have the facilities, tradition, and a budget for 63 full schollys, you should be able to complete with a team that is equal but offers FCOA. I think NDSU benefits also from their location for recruiting, I think Minnesota turned a blind eye to homegrown prospects and went after bigger fish and missed... While NDSU just pickup everything they left behind.

2. In one of the few instances I've been upset with Choate, his comments were bulletin board material for NDSU to break them out of their offensive doldrums. Their players and Entz both said so.
