Big Sky Predictions - Week 6

Postby Mvemjsunpx » Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:11 pm

EWU 52-35 Davis — All of Davis's games have been decided by at least 3 touchdowns

Montana 45-38 Idaho St. — The Griz have won 11 straight over ISU, their only long streak still intact

Cal Poly 28-38 SuutahNo clue on Southern Utah, but we know the 'Stangs are bad

Portland St. 20-35 Montana St.The Viks looked better with Kraght than Eason; who will start?

NoCo 35-23 NoDak — The Bears looked bad last week, but they'll get enough big plays to win

Illinois St. 27-28 NAUThe Redbirds are 4-0, but haven't played anyone good; is NAU good?

Seriously though, he would never choose the crapbirds (or whatever he is calling SUU these days).

I escaped September with a terrible 33-13 record so far in these picks. I need to pick up the pace and get a perfect weekend. Here is my attempt this weekend at perfection (hopefully perfect at picking the winners and not the losers).

CP at SUU---The Mustangs have been so close yet can't get wins. The Thunderbirds took last week off after a thrashing by Sacramento State. The Mustangs once again come close and once again...SUU 38, CP 31.

EWU at UCD---The Eagles are soaring finally and ready to take control of the conference. The Aggies are better than people thought and will be ready for this game at their place...EWU 38, UCD 25.

UM at ISU---Both teams had impressive victories last week. The Grizzlies and Bengals have both had crazy games, even with the disparity among the programs in recent years. This time, they may be pretty even...UM 31, ISU 29.

Illinois State at NAU---The Lumberjacks take a break from the Big Sky slate to welcome another team from the Missouri Valley. Just like before, maybe a bit on the down side for the conference...Illinois State 35, NAU 24.

UNC at UND---Everyone is piling on the Hawks and enjoying it. The Bears get their turn this weekend, but sooner or later the Hawks will get mad and put a stop to it. Perhaps this weekend...UND 34, UNC 31.

PSU at MSU---The Vikings really can't seem to get out of their own way and now head in to Bobcat country against a sourly team upset at their loss last week. Bobcats want a statement and they get it...MSU 35, PSU 7.

Portland State- 10
Montana State- 31

The Bobcats are a rising team and they will not want to lose two home games in a row.

Northern Colorado- 20
North Dakota- 24

Injuries have plagued the F'n Hawks all year, and now they get what has to be considered one of their easier challenges. Lucky for them UNC has been a terrible road team over the years.

Montana- 31
Idaho State- 30

Game could really go either way, Idaho State is at home and the last time the Griz visited the Dome they were very fortunate, difference now is Idaho State is actually not that bad. Heart Says Idaho State. Head says Griz.

Illinois State- 38
Northern Arizona- 28

Would love to be wrong here, would rather see the BSC get another win over the MVFC but I'm not seeing it.

Cal Poly- 24
Southern Utah- 31

The triple option is hard to defend, luckily for SUU they had two weeks to prepare for it.

Eastern Washington- 28
UC Davis- 31

Yup I'm going for the upset here. Eastern and Davis are #1 and #2 respectfully in total offense. HOWEVER, UC Davis is #4 in total defense while Eastern Washington is........dead last at #13. It also helps that Davis is #1 in pass defense while Eastern is #12 in the same category, which is both team's offensive strength. Can Davis exploit that...I say YES!

The passing D stat might be misleading based on schedules. SDSU is ranked 75th in passing offense in FBS. Weber State is run first and didn't have to throw with a lead. PSU, SD, and UND are all run first teams. Eastern has faced two elite passing attacks in TTU and Montana and and built early leads against SAC and Fordham requiring them to throw. Plus, FU was without Edmonds.

I'm more worried about our ability to stop the run, especially up the middle.

It'll be interesting to say the least. Eastern has struggled against good passing teams, the key to the game is who is going to make the first defensive stop

Ah, but that time the Griz were on their 3rd. string quarterback. Now they're on a 2nd. string QB, so it should be an easy victory. ;)

What is super awesome is that the motherfucking plutotv dickholes have a shitty site. I am probably the only **** dick in the world where it works great for 2 minutes then buffers and then goes blank.

Oh, I can click on another channel and it works so I go back to the game for 2 **** more minutes then black screen.

**** all of these internet view/streaming sites. I wish the University would just not be a scumsucking bunch of queers for one motherfucking second and allow the local cable whatever to show the games.

**** ME, but more, **** THEM

These were new issues. Clicking on a different game hardly ever did anything on WatchBigSky—I was forced to watch the Idaho/NAU volleyball game no matter what I did—and the Eversport website wouldn't even load at all.

I don't waste my time on that site unless I'm watching a replay. Pluto has it going on.

OH **** course. You have a problem with watchbigsky, like everyone does, but no one cares....when I do it is because I suck at the internet??? :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand: :tothehand:

I gave up on ever streaming anything from the UofM EVER a few years ago. I will stream any movie/music/whatever and never have a problem but the second I try to do anything for the University of Montana it goes to ****.

**** them. They should lose every game ever until...hell....let a 5 year old with a smart phone stream it. It would be better than who they have now.

Who do the Griz play next week? I am for them. by 10 ****

Pluto can suck Uranus. Is there room on the SoCon bandwagon? What about that CAA thing?
