Re: Big Sky BBall Preview

:thumbdown: I was looking forward to seeing his Lumberjacks career progress. Well...if Russell indeed transfers to GCU then it is what it is. I have no trouble seeing how playing for a former NBA player (Majerle), in a nicer/bigger arena than NAU has and is just down the road from his family and fri...

Fall sports

Football sitting 6-2 in third place. Volleyball top 3. Soccer earned the second seed in the conference tourney. Cross country top notch and competing on a national level as usual. Good time to be a Jacks fan. Catching the North Dakota - NAU football game @ a sports bar in North Dakota tomorrow. Go J...

Re: Sacramento State

What do you think of this current team? That game against Sac was crazy, and the Montana game was just pure joy, but this past Idaho State game was a bit disappointing especially in the first half. ISU is supposed to be the worst of the worst in the conference and we were down to them AT HOME??? Go...

Yes, ISU is much improved. The "Big Human" is going to will the Bengal football program into being competitive.

Sacramento State

3-2 heading into today's game @ Sac State. I expected 2-3 or 3-2 by this point so I'm not all that surprised. Defense has looked good. Offense and kicking game/special teams (other than punting) has struggled. All three aspects need to be in line to beat teams like MSU, Cal Poly and Sac State on the...

football vs. the USD Coyotes

Even more crickets heard on here than usual...and that says a lot. :thumbdown: Two games into the season and the offense still needs to find a way to start clicking. I'm impressed so far with the defense and most of special teams. Injuries seem to have taken a hit on the team but I can't find any in...

Re: UC Davis Hosts NAU Sept 7

Thanks, UAfan. The results in Tucson stunk but I still walked away feeling a bit more positive than I did the previous year in Tempe.

GoAgs72 - I'm going to post over on the UC Davis board...just a bit more lively there. :ohno:

Re: football!

It is also possible Kadeem does not play or does not start due to discipline issues relating to issues last semester but not likely. If that happens we have other highly capable rbs but qbs is another story. We will play somewhere between two and four qbs in our first games trying to find someone w...

10 days til NAU @ U of A. Have the Jacks fans who were here last year arisen from their moping slumber and realized that NAU is returning a pretty good team? I predict the games @ U of A, Montana State and Cal Poly to be the toughest. Southern Utah's had NAU's number now going on two seasons if I'm ...

Re: We interrupt today's kitchen refurbishing...

Looks like campos is cleaning house with some assistan ad's though. Thanks for the heads up, Jacksdude. I was unaware of the athletic department changes. I met Schaff in the past at NAU - ASU/UofA football games and I enjoyed talking to him. Sad to see this happen but regardless of what I perceive ...

We interrupt today's kitchen refurbishing...

... for a discussion of NAU spring sports. Women's hoops had a tough transition to a new coach. Talent is there but it's yet to come together. Men's hoops exceeded my expectations and seems to have a bright future though replacing the production of Saldivar and Rogers won't occur overnight. I think ...

Basketball...the dreaded Montana trip

Well, NAU has played itself into having a shot at the post season. That is something many (Big Sky coaches...media...myself during non-conference) thought impossible. Their game Saturday vs. Weber reminded me of NAU's heydays when the Weber game was a battle for Big Sky supremacy. Jacks left it all ...

No prob, King. I can imagine that the distractions while playing a road game increase in Hawai'i as compared to...Greeley, Grand Forks or Flagstaff. I hope for a good showing/competitive game. Give a few bench guys some more minutes. Come out with no injuries. Focus on the task at hand with the last...

Re: UC Davis Hosts NAU Sept 7

Good to hear. Much better "non-conference" game than home vs. a D2 school (i.e. Fort Lewis or Western New Mexico). Now the tricky part...convincing a playoff qualifier to do a non-conference road football game @ NAU.

Re: Can we still make the tournament?

Can they make it to the conference tourney....yes. Will they make the conference tourney....that remains to be seen. Continue blowing 18 point leads and it's pretty much a given to not finish in the top 7. The team's been shooting at a pretty good clip but defensive intensity and a killer instinct h...
