How was the pillow fight they dare call a "Spring Game" this year? Any player get tired or winded from running too hard?

Hey Bill...I was just reacting to what you wrote...

“Tubby didn't have any problem winning consistently with a true game approach. The coaches since haven't won that often or consistently with their practice approach to the Spring game.”

Glad to hear that’s not what you were trying to imply. I personally could care less about the format of the game. I do agree they could and should have done more to market the spring game. For the life of me, I can’t understand why it wouldn’t be broadcast on Hens All Access.

It has become what I said it was early last week and the very reason all the negative speculation for those who watched it is pure BS!

The game of football has changed significantly since Tubby coached, so not sure it’s a valid comparison. No more 2 and/or 3-a-days….no more unlimited hitting in practice…no more going back in after getting your “bell rung”. Now it’s much more about player health and safety first and foremost…which I think we would all agree is a good thing.

The bottom line is wins and losses in the fall…nothing will do more to create excitement and awareness than deep playoff runs and a shot at another national championship. Do that and no one will give a $%!& about the spring game format. Just my two cents…

This admin clearly gets it and the program is more than headed in the right direction. How that translates into more Ws remains to be seen but long playoff runs and championships are on peoples minds. Play back the groundbreaking ceremony if you have any doubts!

7-5 in 2019 will be considered a "good year" by the Athletic Dept! :oops:

0-2 vs NDSU & Pitt

7-3 vs rest of schedule...

I personally thought FanDEmonium was super well executed - this coming from a marketing guy. I drove 90+ mins each way with my wife and two year old to be there on Saturday. He watched maybe 30 seconds of the actual game, but he had the BEST TIME at the pregame festival and climbing up and down the stadium stairs. If you saw a guy chasing a little farmer looking kid in overalls and a Dewey shirt that was us. :lol: Good times.

Football wise it was hard to follow but the Pitts catch and run was nice. The strong back wind caused a lot of overthrows. I actually thought Paoletti looked quick and had a better arm than I was expecting - definitely built more like a running QB than Henderson at least from a durability perspective. The O was more up tempo than years past. On D, Strothers looks the part at Safety.

I'm under 40 (for a couple more months). I don't need a gimmick to get me to renew tickets or enjoy the games. Just win and show progress.

If this team has seven wins against this schedule following the large personnel losses on defense, hosannas should be sung to the heavens.

Upsetting ND State here in September with the sellout crowd and ESPN College Gameday here on Campus puts us in a great spot. :-)
