    Re: #2 North Dakota State @ #7 Youngstown St

    It's also worth noting that NDSU has won their last 11 road games and YSU has won their last 11 home games (last loss was NDSU in 2015). One of those streaks is coming to an end.

    I've had this game circled since the start of the year! I was hoping the stars would align and I could go but work got in the way. I'm really hoping the 'Guins can pull off the upset! I want to get out there for a game!!

    The trick for YSU will be holding the ball.
    And for both Pelini's to keep their tempers under control.

    Never said he was that good in 2015, just that he had mojo and a groove. He is finding his groove back that was missing last year. Also, IMO, it helps that he has an OC who puts him in a position to win, something that Polasek had no problem screwing with. Yeah, I will be the first to admit I was a Polasek hater, but I think Messingham is taking that Big Sky offense and melding it with smashmouth Valley football to open up the boxes and re-intergrate the TEs in Jumbo and Pro-Set packages.

    Excited to see NDSU have to play a decent team. Should be a good one.

    Polasek was a melding of NIU and Bohl era NDSU. Messingham IMO is using better plays. We are still a NFL like offense, just with different sets. Just because NDSU has some spread formations doesn't actually make us spread. I think the biggest thing is the ability to take what teams will give you, coach P wasn't that great at it. His bad play calling lost us the semi final game vs JMU last year. Messingham seems better at taking what other teams will give you, I have heard Coach Klieman saying the same thing.

    This is one reason why I have yet to question the offense. Usually, during the Polasek era, the Bison would run power A gap until the defense was gassed, and then change it up and get the offense out of rhythm, and we would shake our heads wondering what was going on and why he would do that. That said, the teams they have played are mediocre-to bad-to awful, outside of maybe EWU, but in the EWU game specific, he ran the ball knowing they could not stop it and then found a way to work TE seams and hot routes, and then when the box opened up again, power A gap and power I sets.
