A rhetorical question maybe...after the 31st the season will be like July 4th fireworks where the biggest boom was at the beginning - not the end.
 
The Big Sky refs implementing the "leading with the helmet" rule. Teams better be deep in the defensive backs positions. The NAU game will be a pivotal game to start conference play.

Man, the Griz schedule is rugged.
:eek: Evertime I look at your guy's schedule I have the same stunned reaction. The games that didn't even make list include @UND and @SAC. UCD also plays well at home, and ask EWU about travelling to USD (loss in 2011).
 
Wow. Only 2 votes towards CP? They really gave SHSU a run for their money. Even more so than NDSU did. Yes, I know they lost a few seniors but who didn't? And I know they lost 2 conference games last year but I'm pretty sure they 2 opponents seen them coming. We had a very fine team in 2011 but got beat down (by a bigger point deficit than any game in 2012) by Sac State. This baffles me. I'm a missing something?!?
 
The BigSky has gotta be the toughest conference these days.
5 top 25 teams...

I still think App. is our toughest opponent.
MSU will be tough on offense but their D has some ?'s
Eastern's Adams may not look so good without his stable of excellent receivers.
Poly and NAU will be tough but they just don't beat us very often...
14-2 all time against Poly
23-2 against NAU in the last quarter century

Yep App is definitely the game I'm the most worried about...
We NEED that win.

I voted before reading, but was wondering why "Delaney" was not an option?

I selected MSU, because it is our main rival, on the road, and McGhee's Sr year. I have a feeling that team will have many reasons to be more motivated than normal.

As for EWU, they are a WR factory for the conference. I fully expect that to continue. I hope they take time to find their games though. At the end of the year, that will be one tough offense to stop.

I believe the GRIZ will be highly motivated this year as well. I don't see NAU winning this game back to back years.

Cal Poly is a crap shoot. This schedule is tough as nails, which come playoff time will be a good thing. I see the GRIZ back in the playoffs hosting a few games again. :thumb:

I completely agree with you but I think Northern Arizona will be a very hard game with Bauman being a powerhouse at running back. Last time Bauman had 29 CAR, 253 YDS, 3 TD, he will be hard for the defense to stop and to top it all off the Griz are playing down there. Then again our offense is much better than they were last year so I don't know it will be interesting.
 
I went with App State, but only becuase it's our first game of the year and there's a lot of unknowns we'll have to work out to be successful in that game. If that game were later in the year, I would probably have gone with the CP or MSU game.
