10-7 Montana as time expires in the first quarter.
The few glimpses of Montana's offense a la Stitt have been very interesting thus far, but NDSU has managed to get to midfield (make that Grizzlies' 30) and is driving.
It's on ESPN, and you get Musberger if like Musberger.
Six minutes that will make you smile. I love the play at the 1:50 mark.
Somehow I missed this (we may have to remove the 'historian' from my name) but this past Wednesday was the 20 year anniversary of Dreisbach to Hayes against Virginia...
Yes, I'm sure you have the same reaction as me. How the hell has it been 20 years?
The game kicks at 3:30 on ESPN. The Bison have won 4 consecutive FCS championships and return their senior QB Carson Wentz. And the most intersting part of this game is the debut of Bob Stitt, #stitthappens, on the Montana sideline. Power 5 coaches have been picking Stitt's brain for years on how to gain an edge offensively and this was addressed in a recent ESPN article that was linked to yesterday on the board.

There are John Wangler days until the start of Michigan Football 2015.
I still get thrills watching Wangler's Michigan highlights. Wangs ushered (with a healthy dose of assistance from Anthony Carter) Bo's Michigan Football program into a completely different kind of offense, the pass offense.
In the immortal words of Robert Frost Ufer, "Johhny Wangler-to-Anthony Carter will be heard until another 100 years of Michigan Football have been played!!". Well, 35 down, 65 years to go...
IMO, he's still one of, if not THE, best pure passers we've ever seen wearing the Maize and Blue. Bo's Boys got Bo his first Rose Bowl Victory in '81 largely because Wangler broke open a game that was very tight at halftime, finding AC over-and-over-again in the 2nd half.
I just started listening to this and think the board will be interested. I know that Henson isn't that well liked around here but he is speaking to a man that Bacon must have vetted for his book.
Edit: There is a great 35 minute interview linked in the embedded tweet below.
In John U. Bacon’s new book “Endzone: The Rise, Fall & Return Of Michigan Football” one of the more intriguing characters in the book is a guy know as “Beav,” check out the latest show to hear Beav’s story and contributions to the effort to get Jim Harbaugh to Michigan. Beav (Jay Flannelly) also give some great behind the scense info on the recruitment and return of Harbaugh to Ann Arbor.
