Re: Julius Thomas 2014

After the latest negativity surrounding the football program, it certainly felt good turning on Sunday Night Football and hearing "Julius Thomas, Portland State University". :thumb:

Re: Beginning of the End

At this point in comes down to the leadership at the University. The President met with the team this last week to express his support and let them know they are not alone. Well let’s lead then. Prove they are not alone and lay the foundation for a brighter future. A strong football program can bri...

Re: Viking Tales: PSU-NAU Game Story

The game ball you gave me for being a fan last week, Scott, I'm giving to Steven Long this week. Incredible performance and the lone bright spot in the loss. Should be conference player of the week, but they probably will give it to Arias from Idaho State, just because his team won.

Re: $20,000 Pizza Giveaway!

I'm starting to enjoy the spin put on the promotions by the marketing department. If Kobayashi eats 2 pizzas, they will "give away $20,000 dollars worth of pizza!" This turns out to be a coupon for $5 off of an online order over $15. "Giving away a new car for every viking touchdown!...

What happened to Marcus Hall????? I was under the impression he was granted another year of eligibility and was going to play for PSU in 2014-2015?????? Where is he?????

Re: Viking Tales: Up Next - Northern Ariz. changes QBs

My NAU friends have been saying Cartwright should have been starting all season. We are going to have to play a complete game in order to have a chance, which means playing the second half with the same intensity as the first half. Oh, yeah...and FINISH!!!

Re: Viking Tales: UND Recap-5 Things,Grading The Keys,Game B

Marty, The 3rd quarter scoring problem has one root, poor coaching. Sorry, but its obvious that they go into half time and fail to make adjustments or anticipate the adjustments the opponent will make. Even if you have a good first half you have to make adjustments b/c your opponent is going to adj...

Re: Viking Tales: UND Recap-5 Things,Grading The Keys,Game B

Thank you for the game ball, Scott. It is maddening at times. I do think anyone who actually went to North Dakota and watched that crap live should get TWO game balls. :lol: :thumb:

Re: Gameday at North Dakota

I realize nobody is going to agree with this, but.... I say keep Burton. 1) My negative take on things: This year does feel like a train wreck right now, but if they get a new coaching staff, we'll have 2 or 3 more years of a new coach and everyone saying "These are not his recruits. Wait a co...

Re: Gameday at North Dakota

Al very good points about the offense and what is wrong there. It has been well documented about peculiar play calling and such. But I still think our defense is what lost this game. We let the worst offense in the Big Sky, a team that hadn't scored more than 18 points in any game, to go 5-5 on long...

3rd and 5 from the 18 and we run a flea flicker. UND stuffs it for a loss. Didn't even fool little old granny in the corner of the barn.

Re: Gameday at North Dakota

Would it not make sense to bring in a seasoned head coach like June Jones and reassign Nigel Burton to Special Teams and Head of Recruiting? He is either not head coaching material (yet) or is holding back for some reason. Isn't Barnum accountable for the lack of at least reasonable pass efficiency...

Re: Viking Tales: PSU-North Dakota Preview

I caught North Dakota's games with both Robert Morris and Stony Brook and the key (to me) is making sure we score touchdowns. We will not win a low scoring game against them, that defense is THAT good. 20 points will be enough to win, however way we get there I don't care. We just cannot be satisfi...

Re: Gameday at North Dakota

Total BS. Poor play calling. I feel like under Walsh and Glanville, we had about three QBs each year who were better than KM has been this season. The defense has to share some of the responsibility. UND had the worst offense in the conference and went 5-5 on third downs (17,11, 8, 17 and 5 yards t...
