Re: Montana vs Richmond - for all the marbles

It appears the griz are a team of destiny this year. They got a HUGE break when Landers went down in the first half of the JMU game. If he played the entire game, JMU would have won. He didn't and UM won. Championship teams often get a big break (a huge play at a key moment late in a close game, a b...

Re: Physicist Stephen Chu to be named Energy Secretary

In introducing him, Obama cited the well worn global warming threat of "disappearing coastlines" in America and that Chu will utilize "science" to deal with global warming. In other words, we'll be told endlessly that this guy is a "scientist" and therefore his politica...

Re: Obama:"I'm adopting the Tman 'Infrastructure Rebuild Plan'."

Obama wises up and chooses to rebuild America's infrastructure rather that wasting tax dollars on "feel good" entitlement programs. Good for him. This is a sign he's finally listening to the Conks. It's time to rebuild and invest in America's crumbling infrastructure. http://www.politico....

Of course the labor contracts have been bleeding the Big 3 to death for years . It is no surprise to many observers, including this one, that the Big 3 are in the shape they are in.

Yes, management signed the contracts. But, what you seem to be overlooking is that unions insisted on those contracts after lengthy negotiations and not only threatened to strike but actually did so, more than once, when they did not get what they wanted.

Weber State will win if they have 2 or fewer turnovers; more than 2 and they lose. Either way, it'll be a much closer game this time around.

Agreed. And the offense better pick it up some, too. Most teams in the playoffs aren't going to hand them 5 turnovers like the Cats did.

Re: Texas St @ #4 Montana

A 'gimme game' for the griz. TSU isn't even in the top 25 in the coache's poll. A free pass to the second round for the griz. griz vs Cal Poly should be interesting. If the Poly kicker can make anything, Poly will win. If not, the griz get to the semis, but no farther.

The auto manufacturers in this country have always called the shots with little if any input from the dealers. The large, high volume dealers have some sway with Detroit but not much. The mid-size and small dealers have none. Remember the financing incentive programs born in the early '80's by GMAC ...

Sorry cat fan. You MUST have 7 FCS wins to qualify for playoffs. Beating UM would POTENTIALLY give you 7, my guess is you finish with 6.

Montana State will get serious consideration for the last spot in if they beat Montana. That will make the Cats 8-4 and 6-2.
