Big Sky Predictions 9-22

Postby JALMOND » Wed Sep 19, 2018 7:13 pm

Home. You can come home again. Where people love you, accept you for who you are. In football, home is where you play in front of your family and your lifelong friends. That is why in conference play, home can sometimes be the deciding factor, more so than record-wise. You dig a little more, you push a little more. Everyone plays this weekend in the Big Sky, with some help from former member North Dakota. I'm currently at 28-6, hoping for perfection.

CP at EWU---The Eagles enter conference play feeling good about themselves and they face a Mustangs team that broke through and got a win last week. This could be a good game, but in the end, take the home team...EWU 38, CP 28.

UI at UCD---The Vandals took an extra week to prepare for their new conference while the Aggies looked sharp against the strong and mighty Stanford team. The week off could help the Vandals, but again, have to go with the home team...UCD 41, UI 28.

ISU at North Dakota---Former members the Hawks, coming off their big win over Sam Houston State, start play as a wild card in the Big Sky race, welcoming the Bengals who are about where everyone expected. Again, home team wins...North Dakota 28, ISU 17.

MSU at PSU---The Bobcats come in prepared, having gone 1-1 against the mighty Missouri Valley. The Vikings finally broke through and got a win last week. On paper, Bobcats should win, but, what the heck, take the home team...PSU 28, MSU 25.

UNC at WSU---The Bears have been hanging tough with everyone but can't get a win. The Wildcats showed true grit in getting a win over South Dakota. The Bears probably will keep it close, but once again, the home team prevails...WSU 35, UNC 28.

SAC at UM---The Hornets have had some great outings so far and think they can do some good things this year. The Grizzlies have been playing tough as well. The Hornets may think they can win in Missoula, so, well, nah. Home team wins again...UM 35, SAC 32.

SUU at NAU---Two teams struggling entering conference play. The Thunderbirds looked lost against the Pac-12 bottom teams and the Lumberjacks took it on the chin in both FCS games after getting an FBS win. Clean sweep. Home team wins...NAU 28, SUU 20.

First week of the season, home team wins all.

Cal Poly 20-38 EWUJoe Protheroe got 43 carries in a blowout win last week :?

Montana St. 34-21 Portland St. — How will the Vikings do in a vaguely competitive contest?

Idaho 20-31 DavisNot much info on Idaho, but the Aggies look pretty good

NoCo 17-27 WeberAnother week, another hard-fought loss to a good team for the Bears

Suutah 27-42 NAUStick a fork in the loser, though I wonder if we can stick a fork in SUU anyway

Sac 28-23 Montana — The last time the Griz wore copper & gold against Sac, Dave Dickenson actually was the QB

Idaho St. 34-41 NoDakThe F-Hawks suddenly look good, but they've had trouble with ISU recently

Sacramento State @ Montana - Sacramento State has a shot in this game, but seeing as it's in Missoula, a place the Griz hardly ever lose I'll take Montana 31-17

Cal Poly @ Eastern Washington - Cal Poly isn't as bad as they were last year and could make this game interesting...but it is still a tall task. 40-24 Eagles

Idaho State @ North Dakota - The last 4 games in this series have been decided by 7, 6, 3 and 3 points. I feel this one will be similar. 28-23 Fighting Hawks

Montana State @ Portland State - Montana State's defense is going to be the reason they win this game. 24-23 Bobcats

That team down south @ Northern Arizona - NAU took another black eye and SUUcks will go into the game bruised, beaten and ready for a win. 38-28 Chickens

Idaho @ UC Davis - The Aggies have looked far more impressive in their OOC than Idaho has, Welcome back to the Big Sky Idaho. 41-25 Aggies

Northern Colorado @ Weber State - Donning their own retro uniforms, the Wildcat defense continues to be stifling and the offense finds a rhythm early. 31-13 Wildcats

Sac's the better team on paper, so they should win at least. We'll see if they're ready for prime time.

The Griz have some issues that I don't believe they'll be able to fix this season, like their lack of a running game and a QB with spotty accuracy.

Throughout the years, there have been many damn fine teams that have found a way to lose at Wash-Griz. :nod:

Yeah, but most all of those Griz teams were better than this one. :-|

Home teams go 5-2, I go 5-2. 33-8 overall.

wellll.....I think we're going to chalk this up to a rebuilding year. Hoping to end up .500. Our offense can play but our defense can't. We had the same problem when i was playing, you can go out and score 50 points but if you let your opponent score 51 you're going to lose everytime. Let's go Birds!

Hornet D played as though they had no idea UM ran the read option. :ohno:

Sneed is a baller, he gets his accuracy down and he'll be a top QB in FCS for the next couple of years.

The read option isn't what killed Sac, though. It was that fake toss QB-run play that UM hadn't called before. Sneed got a couple long TDs with it.

Still, Sac should've been more scared of Sneed's running than his passing. I know the Griz WRs are dangerous, but Sneed hasn't really been able to connect with them for big plays yet this year.

Hornets D was known for overpusuit. Our OC took advantage of that and those fake pitches were the result.
