Cats 45 bears 3


While registering my vehicles the assessor stated "I have had both Cat and Griz students and alums work for me and the Griz end up working under the direction of the Cats."

It's always a struggle in Greeley.

Cats 27
Bears 17
It's just nuts. In 2011, MSU rolls in at 6-1 and UNC is 0-7. It was 24-21 midway through the fourth quarter, won 31-21. In 2013, MSU was 6-2 and UNC 1-7. Up 27-14 early third quarter, but fell behind 28-27 before scoring and winning 35-28, and then lost the next three games to miss playoffs. In 2007, MSU gave the Bears their only win of the year! Ugh.

The 2017 game was close, but a little more understandably. Still MSU doubled them up in total yards 519 to 259, but had to come back from 21-7 down at halftime.

If MSU plays like it did before the SUU game, it's gonna be another one of those 'house of horrors' games: MSU 26, UNC 23.
If MSU plays like it's capable and the defense keeps smothering teams, which they need to do going into final two: MSU 38, UNC 10.
Not going to let you off here TomCat. You and I tied as closest predictions last week. No hedging your bets. Pick your poison.

You automatically win, since I make two picks. I just do that because there’s the team I think MSU is and then this other mistake-riddled, poorly executing team.


MSU - 14 team National Champions (most recent 2011); 52 individual National Champions (most recent 2017).

UNC on the road is always a tough out for the Cats...but I think this team will grind it out and win going away in the 2nd half....Cats 35...da bears 17.

The Cat's have struggled a bit on the road this year and have a history of struggling in Greeley.
If the Cat's win the battle in the trenches. The D-Line Putting pressure on the UNC QB and keep their run game limited. The O-line creating gaps for the RB's and giving Rovig time to throw, then we win easily, otherwise it could be a tight game.

24 Cats 17 Bears

I dig that we’re going down early to spend some time on their field and get accustomed to it before the game.

Yes. I think it is one of only two natural grass fields left in the Big Sky.

I think the offense will click again and we will move the ball at will.

Cats - 45
UNC - 13

To really turn the corner, we need to get to the point where we don't fear going to Greeley!

They apparently have a good cornerback, yet their defense is horrible and near the worst in every category. They are dead last in total defense.

They apparently have an "NFL prospect qb", (Choate knows a million times more than myself so I'll take his word) yet their offense appears mediocre and is near last in every category. They are dead last in scoring offense and dead last in total offense.

I'm admittedly a Cat homer. There is almost no game I don't think we will win. But if this team goes down to Greeley and struggles to beat a team dead last in offense and dead last in defense I'll be the first to admit we are not a playoff team. This is simply a game we should dominate. We literally are better than them in ever stat except for passing offense because they get a whopping 50 yards more than us each game through the air...

I like the Cats by about 20-23+ in the one. I'll say Cats 45, Bears 17

Don't know any team called Lil' Brothers other than the Griz. I thought they were playing Idaho.
The "lil' Brothers" are the team who "claims" to be 6-2 after 9 games ... it's bobkitten math

looking at ticket sales for the game on Saturday other than the students it looks like they'll only be about six hundred people there

Or, perhaps the college descending into enrollment problems and vying for legitimacy against Montana State Billings?

It's a mistake. It happens sometimes. Happened with your parents. Let's try not to dwell on our mistakes too much.

Good talk.
