    I know that the players can play 4 games and not lose a season but is there still a rule about how many players can suit up for the game? It seemed like SDSU played about everybody last week (not Boen, Schmidt- is he still injured, 3rd string QB, and a few others) but they still had all of their redshirts not wearing pads.

    Part of that was the pace of the USD offense. When a team is accustomed to a certain rotation, hurry up offenses can really throw their bodies off.

    I think you would rather get your second and third strings guys in for some playing time rather than worrying about getting the potential redshirts in.

    Mason McCormick, Caleb Sanders, Blake Kunz, and CJ Wilson are second and third string guys. Other than them, I wouldn't be surprised if J'Bore gets a series or two. However, I don't think it will be many more outside of this group. Maybe Cade Terveer and Ryan Van Marel.

    I guess the point I was trying to make is a lot of the second and third string players played a good share of the second half of the last game so I don't know if I see this week being much different. They might get in a series or two sooner but like other people are saying with only 2 games before NDSU you can't take that starters out much sooner regardless of the score.
    So far, I don't know if the redshirt rule has effected SDSU. The redshirts and maybe 4 other players are the only people that didn't play last game. It might not matter unless there is an injury later in the season.

    I worry more about guys "letting up" when we are up big. When someone isn't going 100% that seems to be when injuries occur. Let's try to get the 2nd and 3rds some work to keep building for the future.
    I played college football and if you don't believe game (shape) conditioning is different than practice you're completely mistaken. You can not simulate the physical and mental fatigue of playing 4 quarters with an NDSU. This has nothing to due with coaching, but rather the tough scenerio our coaches are in.

    Sneak peak of tomorrows "3 Matchups to Watch"
    3 Matchups to Watch:


    1. Jordan Brown vs. Josh Wilkes

    This matchup has me pumped for Saturday! JB is one of the best CBs in the FCS and is drawing interest from NFL level scouts. Wilkes, a former Eastern Michigan commit, is 2nd in the FCS in receiving yards with 420 yards. I would fully expect Brown to lock in on Wilkes wherever he lines up. Last year Wilkes was playing at Juco powerhouse Butler CC and was receiving offers from FBS schools including Southern Mississippi. He possess good size (6'3, 183) and appears to have above average speed. With the MVFC graduating so many top wide receivers last season, this may be the best receiver that Brown will have the chance to face this season. Jordan made a beautiful interception last week but also let a receiver get behind him in the 2nd half for a big gain. This matchup will be one to watch.


    2. Jackrabbit OLBs vs. Golden Lion quick pass game

    The Golden Lions have two options in their passing game; chuck it deep or get it out quick. The OLB group of Logan Backhaus, Dalton Cox, Seven Wilson, Levi Brown, and Eric Kleinschmit will have to balance their responsibilities of stopping the run and getting out on the perimeter. UAPB has four very good athletes on the outside so it will be important to be sound in angles and making the tackle when the opportunity is there. Last week the Jacks really swarmed to the ball. If they can continue that this week, they should be okay.


    3. #605Hogs vs. UAPB Front 7

    The UAPB front seven seems susceptible to the run. Through two contests they are allowing 218 yards per game on the ground. They have decent size but must struggle to get off blocks. If the Jacks can establish a power running game, it could put this game out of reach early. However, the Jacks are still breaking in a few new starters. Last week against a stout Montana State defensive line they were able to grind out 193 yards on a 4.6 ypc average. I would expect the Jacks running game to have a big day. If the Golden Lions can slow down the running game it could keep the game closer than many expect.

    I've seen on Twitter that a number of verbals and potential recruits will be making their official visits to campus this weekend. Lets hope the Jacks can give them a good show. Also, this weekend is the Beef Bowl. The meal will be just on the north side of the SJAC. They will be serving from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm and you can get tickets on site for $8 per plate. It is still done by the Department of Animal Science and the proceeds go to support undergraduate scholarships in the department.

    Have a great weekend! Jacks win 52-13.

    This effect is somewhat concerning for me. Losing the Iowa State game is big, because now we'll have two easy games against MSU and APB followed by a bye before playing the #1 ranked and most physical FCS team in the country in NDSU. Granted NDSU's schedule hasn't been very tough either, but it would be nice to have a few games of MVFC play to get us up to speed before going up against NDSU.

    Anyone want to talk about the game???

    Things they'd like to see? Plays they'd like to see called? Adjustments from game 1 to 2? Heck, what are people cooking at their tailgate spots this week? etc, etc etc... I know we are going to blow them out but the lack of interest is kind of depressing.
