    I'm in agreement. I think the coaching staff needs to be in the roll the dice mode and hope we can get by UNI without Genant or Harris. To truly make a run, we need all hands on deck for JMU. UNI is battered and bruised and didn't get a week off, the USD game last week was a physical one for UNI. It was far more taxing for UNI than I thought it would be.

    I know it's 1-0 every week, but a little strategy here may be needed. Getting beat by UNI this weekend won't hurt anymore than getting hammered by JMU.

    This gets back to the what is the goal debate and playing NDSU in Fargo or Frisco, people will have different opinions.

    I'm all for putting every able body in the game to beat JMU, even if it means risking a loss to UNI.

      Not good is all I can say. PSJ has taken a beating. Get well PJS

        UNI is waiting to hear about their WR #1, WR #2, LB #1, and #1 TE that was injured against Iowa State. Not sure on the likelihood of any of those guys playing, but I'd expect at least one or two of them.
        Pierre is out. Wilson is likely going to play. Blakely is out.

          Too bad about Pierre and Devon but it really doesnít change much about what is going to win this game. 1 or 0 turnovers and we win, 2 or more and likely lose. Our defense is going to keep us in it if they arenít put in bad spots

            Itís playoffs. Survive and advance. I donít agree with saving people assuming we will get past UNI. How would you want to be the kid that sits out when the team loses and your season is over?

                Part of the coaching staff's job is to help student-athletes attain their educational and career goals. Genant, as I understand it, wants to develop more and possibly play professionally. Accommodating players in ways like that adds to the recruiting appeal of playing at SDSU. That reputation shouldn't be jeopardized. Coaches have to balance what's best for players and the team in both the short term and long term, and players deserve input. It's not all about what's best for the coaches' resumes or the wishes of us fans.

                  This is correct - there is a lot more that goes into these decisions that even the die-hard fan isn't privy to. This is one of those situations that you trust the coaching staff and any administrators involved are making the best decision for the student-athlete involved. The player and the family's input is a large factor in this decision.

                    Awfully quiet around here considering the game tomorrow! Sure hope we can get 10,000 fans to this game, but I am going to guess it is around 6,000.

                    PSJ will not play according to Zimmer, but I'm glad we have a home run threat back in CJ. Should make things easier on the run game.

                        Yes well done! Hopefully some arenít regulars that end up becoming die hards. Iím thinking the crowd will be in the 7000 range but will be a loud crowd regardless of size.
                        Really think the defense will dominate this game, uniís best offense is the deep ball and our corners seem good at covering that. Get Mikey going with the run game and keep things simple for Heide

                          Thanks. Hoping a good amount of them wouldn't have gone to the game but decided to go because of the lower price. Since FCA didn't have an offer, I felt inclined to do something.

                            Thanks. Agreed, that's my hope.
