If we can get two defensive turnovers we win 27-24. If we can’t get a turnover we never gain the necessary momentum and lose pretty bad 38-17

Listen, I am going to say this once again. If this team shows up, if the coaches show, if the fans show up, this team is a top 5 team.


Punters are people too!!

And, as much as many on this board hate to admit it, so is UM. I firmly believe the Big Sky Conference is clearly the best conference in the FCS this year and will have a good chance to show that in the playoffs. I think this game is a 50/50 proposition.

50/50 in my mind. Head says we're due to lose one after last year, heart says we win at home. 28-27 cats.

24-10 Griz....at halftime

Choate starts to panic about Rovigs deer in headlight decision making.....brings Troy Anderson in the rest of the game for some magic, but its too much to overcome.

34-23 Griz BSC champs and #3 seed in Playoffs. Cats drop to #10.
Too late huh..howd that work out last year?

Looked at the numbers from the two boards. Same as it is every year.

On egriz they are 100% picking a griz win. Not the case here as we always have some picking the cats to lose.

I threw out the two asinine predictions of the griz winning by 76 and 82. Lol. Of the “real” predictions only two of the 30 had the griz by less than 10; and only one with the griz winning by less than a td. Average margin of victory over there? 22 points.

Here it’s like it always is. Quiet confidence but no one really predicting anything crazy. Biggest victory prediction was 23 points, and that is the only guess higher than 20. The griz had 17 guesses of 20 or more!

Average margin of victory on this board? Less than 7.

Like I said earlier, we could only wish the team over there would be as cocky a their fanbase! I’m really hoping all their fans are very, very wrong this week!

I don't think West Bonner Community College of Academic Excellence quarterback is 100% healthy and it's going to be a factor before the game is over :coffee:

If we don't spot them 22, we win by 22.


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

To be fair to them (which I hate to do) when they win it tends to not be close. When we win, it's a close game.

I think it will be close. :wink:

Sadly, I agree. Once... just ONCE, I'd absolutely love to see one of those games where everything completely goes wrong for them and right for us, with turnovers, pick six, blown coverages\missed assignments for TD, blocked kicks, muffed punt return, etc... and just absolutely steam roll them into oblivion. Is that so much to ask? :lol:


Great time to be a BOBCAT!

This is 1000% correct. However one of these years I would love a Bobcat victory that is not in doubt in the 4th.

Defense comes to play, griz offense doesn't muster 30 points. Question becomes, can the MSU offense score on the UM defense. I see something relatively close and in the twenties, like 27-21 MSU.

My heart: 28-24 MSU (go ahead touchdown followed by a defensive stand)
My brain: 38-24 UM (UM scores a game clinching touchdown with two minutes left)

So...of course I'll follow my heart on this one!

One thing that could significantly change this game is reinjury to Ifanse or Andersen, or if one or both just isn't right. They've only looked like themselves on offense in flashes since the beginning of the season.

If Andersen is ineffective, that puts more on Rovig. If Ifanse is ineffective, that puts yet more on Rovig. It's hard for me to envision him putting the offense on his back.

That said-- stranger things have happened. And wouldn't that be hilarious.

This is laughable coming from a griz fan. You all always want to spout off about total record or the 16 year streak. That has zero bearing on this game, at least my comment was recent history and given the players in the game, probably still very relevant.
