    I'm of the opinion that James Robinson is the best back in the conference once he reaches full speed (Markel Smith is no slouch either), but if a defense forces Robinson (and Markel) to make his cuts before he gets past the line of scrimmage he is less dangerous. I just don't see Illinois State winning this match up against the Bison if their RBs don't have a big game.
    Nothing else to really say then this. If we can run the ball we have about a 40W-60L chance. If we can't run the ball we have about a 10W-90L chance in this game. As our O-Line goes everything else follows. I'm expecting to see both QB's play Broadnax (dual) and Kolbe (passing). Last week hurt so it will be interesting to see how the Redbirds respond this weekend fighting for their playoff lives against a team in NDSU that wants to be seeded higher than SDSU.

    Weather looks like it will be pretty crappy but hoping to see a lot of Bizon fans make the trip (G-82 is the RV lot @$25 https://s3.amazonaws.com/sidearm.sit..._Fan_Guide.pdf). Should be a fun game in "Football Weather" as Spack likes to say.

    only thing to add from offensive perspective is question of how effectively we mix things up with read option and pass game to keep Bison guessing, so that we are less predictable in our run game.

    defensively, we need to not let Eastick burn us deep like last year - you can bet we're watching a lot of tape there. It's not that we don't cover well .. just ask SDSU .. Goedert had just 1 catch. Wieneke had 5 catches for 52 yards, but was targeted 12 times. it's our cover schemes that too often leave CBs isolated. Most games, our pass defense is very good .. but some games, our pass cover schemes and techniques get exploited, and then snowball because teams give up trying to run. Our front 7 is very stout, and can run and hit - capable of controlling most OLs, and forcing teams into passing.

    This is the reason I don't think NDSU matches up particularly well with ISUr. If Stick throws the ball 30 times the Bison are out of their element and probably in trouble given the weather conditions but that's been the formula to beat ISUr this year. The Bison trump card is Stick's legs though and I think they'll need to rely on him running more than ever in this game.

    I don't think either team scores very much this game. First team to 20 wins.
