Dad is an alum and I’ve been to every single title game. Don’t bring that pain on me by making me choose. 

And from which school did you graduate?

NDSU would not be a sure thing. Let’s focus on our first sell out versus UH!  GMG!

It works 20% of the time

Hey as former Panthers coach Brian Fantana would say; 20% of the time it works every time.

Last time I checked 1-0 in bowl games is 100%

Yep, but I meant 1 winning season in 5 unless I'm remembering wrong.

Yep...and I meant bowl championships, trophy’s and such...which in order to win those pretty little things you must do three things:

1. Run the ball.

2. Stop the run.

3. Play Solid Defense.

I'm actually with you on your overall point, but we really shouldn't be walking down this path.

McCarney won that ball game with the same system that failed to get him there every other year he was here.  The same system that he failed to coach properly.  Failed to recruit to properly.  Failed to, honestly, care about.

There are a million reasons you are right.  Let's use a better one.

I realize that but it would just be great to play down here, one of 12 yearly games.

They have a great fan base, but scheduling them (and possibly losing) does not do much for us.  Beating them doesn’t do much either.  I guess I just don’t see the positive.  Sorry, man

But he won it.....and he won it with a similar system and philosophy that beat us in our last three bowl games.

Run The Ball

Stop The Run...and play solid defense.

No, he won it because we played UNLV and not Utah State, And very good Troy team and FAU last year.  Not even close to the same competition

I really don't understand the need to defend Littrell getting blown out in every meaningful game we've played.

Great coaches find ways to win the game. Stop making excuses 

McCarney was awful. Pure and Simple. He won with Dodge's players and was awful every year outside of one with a heavy senior class and some stud players.

McCarney was aweful at Recruiting.

McCarney was aweful at public speaking and promotions.

McCarney was aweful in husbandry, which might explain his inability to properly deal with personal relationships that led to him to losing his team in 2015?

But he understood game control and that you must run the ball, you must stop the run and you must play solid defense to win championships.

Remember THE STAND.

In three years time he cut Dodge’s Points Per Game allowed from 30 Per game to 17.
