Re: 2019 Call Your Shot/Check in

NAU.

7-5 if a few things go right. 6-6 or 5-7 sounds more realistic, though. 10 out of the 12 coaches on staff are new, a beat up offensive line to start the season, late departures/transfers, five tough road games.....that's too much to expect a playoff push.

Re: Big Sky Tournament Thread (2019) - Men

The only teams I think are out of running are WSU and UI. Weber is scuffling/underperforming. Idaho has had the roughest season. I can see any of the rest of the teams pulling an upset in a Big Sky conference lacking a dominant squad. UM and UNC are the best teams but they are not without flaws. It ...

Re: Two Questions

1. Do other states have strip clubs at truck stops or is this just a "Montana" thing? I've driven past the one in Dillon many a times but never pulled the trigger due to time constraints or driving elderly, less "adventurous" relatives. 2. I initially though the correct spelling ...

Re: Jerome Souers Retiring… Sort of

One poster on eGriz floated the idea of NAU hiring Bob Stitt and Stitt bringing in Gresch Jensen. I doubt Jensen would go there, however, since Cookus has another year. Cookus hasn't announced what he's planning on doing after his shoulder surgery. It's not a given he's returning, if I read correct...

Finally! Thompson? Pflugrad #1? Pflugrad #2? Or something off the radar and out of the norm (hiring outside of the school/conference) for NAU? I don't have a read on the new A.D. and their view of the athletic department's direction yet. NAU has only had two coaches since I started following them i...

Re: Bold predictions for the BSC

I'm going to guess that the Big Sky is not going to have the leading rusher at the end of the regular season. Can you Big Sky guys tell me how many times the leading rush in I-AA/FCS has been from the Big Sky? I honestly don't know but my impression is that it hasn't been often. Archie Amerson for ...

Re: NAU announces 2018 Schedule

Playing SUU early may be beneficial? NAU is one for seven vs. SUU recently. Given the Jacks penchant for, ahem, forgettable Novembers, I'm going to look for the silver lining and call this a blessing in disguise.

Re: 1R - San Diego @ NAU

Well....that sucked. I drove 4 hours with traffic to the game and 3 hours back to witness that steaming turd of a game. An embarrassing display by both the offense and the defense. Silver lining, perhaps, is at least NAU special teams kept it together. It boggles the mind how seemingly the whole tea...

Re: Jerome Souers's Semi-Vindication

Now, I don't think NAU deserved to be selected (even the Griz should've been ahead of them, IMO), but I admit it is nice to see their AD (Lisa Campos) get embarrassed after that terrible sort-of firing in September. She has now put herself in the position where she either has to get rid of a playof...

Admittedly, I don't know any SUU fans other than a high school friend because their kid goes to school there. I saw many SUU fans were in attendance today on plutotv.com. Where are the ...

Re: Big Sky Injury Problems

Emmanuel Butler is out for the season for NAU. Throw in a seemingly discombobulated Cookus/team offense, a painfully young defense and Souers being ceremoniously shown the door and I think if it's time to start feeling like I normally do around early November. http://www.nauathletics.com/news/2017/9...

Here's my bold prediction. One of the seven following teams will win the conference: Cal Poly, EWU, NAU, SUU, UM, UND or WSU. I think UND or Cal Poly have the easier route but EWU stays the champ until someone knocks them off the pedestal. I'm an NAU fan so I'll talk about them a bit. Their offense,...
