    Default UNI week

    First off thank you to all veterans past, current, and future you don't get enough credit for everything you've done or will do.

    As for UNI this looks like a tough matchup this weekend as it usually is. It looks to me like they're offense is going to look a little different than what we're used to. I think the Jacks are going to need to be disciplined in their pass rush as McElvain seems to be good outside the pocket. Weston is a dangerous receiver and big play threat if he plays.

    On offense the Jacks have to hold on to the ball this weekend! UNI's defense is solid as always, and very tough against the run. I would like to see the Jacks open it up a little and have Heide take a couple shots down field early.
    Is it Saturday yet? Roll Damn Rabbits!

    Imo if we don't lose the turnover battle, we win the game. It's honestly that simple for this team, we're that talented. Even if we lose it by 1, we probably still win with the defense we have as long as one isn't returned for a TD. TAKE CARE OF THE BALL!

    The running game has to be better. The Jacks aren't going to win many games with less than 100 yards on the ground.

    I am having a hard time envisioning a win this Saturday. UNI is solid and we seem to be trending down. I think we’ll need some big momentum plays to pull it out like on special teams, turnover something like that.

    You are not alone. I sense our true freshman QB is overwhelmed and who would not be? I hope he learned from his mistakes and has a zero turnover game this Saturday.

    That's basically how I feel as well. Without the costly turnovers, we beat ISUr, NDSU , and Minnesota. I think the same gold for UNI. If we're on the wrong end of the turnover margin, I don't like our chances.

    The thing is, UNI needed a bunch of turnovers late in the game to beat ISUr like they did (much like ISUr needed against us), then UNI had an unconvincing 17-9 win against ISUb at home last week, so they're definitely not world beaters. As far as us trending down, we had a game where we turned the ball over too much... I don't necessarily consider that trending down. There are ways we lose that game and I agree with you, but the way we lost that game, I don't agree with us trending down.

    The scary thing about turnovers being an issue for us is that UNI is 3rd in the nation in turnover margin. Besides that, we stack up against them very well.

    Play smart, and don't turn it over, our defense will keep us in the game.

    I didn’t see that ISU blue score. Would of guessed it would of been way more lobsided. It still says there defensive is solid and the offensive side of the ball is of course the concern for us. If it’s not turnovers that help us then the O line is going to have to take it up a notch both run blocking and protecting Hiede.
