    Youngstown confirmed the October 5th date today. The schedule is official. No idea why we aren't releasing it and starting ticket sales.

      Winning every home game is possible.

      Might be necessary.

            We obviously have questions about who will play quarterback but i'm really excited about this schedule. 6 Home games and 2 in September along with an early Homecoming game 10/5 should equal some great tailgating.

            Now all we need to do is be competitive and come out of Ames healthy and take care of our home Non Con business with the hopes of building some excitement and boosting attendance.

              I'm pretty pumped about the schedule and the amount of offensive talent we'll be able to put on the field next year.

              Obviously QB is a TBD...but we'll be surrounding that new QB with a really high level of talent...for FCS football it is really strong.

              Briley Moore, Deion McShane, Isaiah Weston, Jaylin James, Rima, Trevor Allen, Logan Wolf, several other very capable WRs, the addition of Michael Zachary who has big play ability. And an OL that should be strong.

              PLEASE!! Farley let your coaching staff on the offensive side get creative and use those weapons.

              We've got a QB coach who played at Oregon and the Arena League, an OL coach who played at Oregon, an OC who played in the NFL, a RB coach who played at OU and the NFL and really good WR and TE coaches. Turn them loose and let's see what happens.

              Winning is more fun than losing.

                What are the odds that Farley lets his offensive coaches make major decisions?

                    About as likely as him deciding to retire this Spring and handing it over to someone who has an offensive mindset and actually treats players with respect.

                      I think out of all years that Farley may be willing to hand it over, this is the most likely.

                        Ok, now that's a "hot take!" Very curious about what makes you think this might be the year?

                          A few things.

                          1. The MVFC is wide open this year for the first time in a while. Sure, NDSU reloads. Sure you can look to moving form Bohl to Kleiman at the same time as moving from one all time QB to a kid that has no experience and go "See, losing a QB and a coach at the same time doesn't impact them." and you could be right. Here's what my counter to that is:

                          Bohl wasn't a great coach. NDSU was real bad with Bohl in the MVFC. I mean they went 6-5, 3-8 and 7-4 in the regular season with Bohl. Never better than 4-4 in conference play. All of a sudden Kleiman shows up and their defense reaches a level they weren't even close too before. Their recruiting all of a sudden jumps to a level it wasn't close too before. Kleiman brought an all new attitude to that staff - even as a position coach at first - that they didn't have. So moving to Kleiman was Kleiman taking over the job he was already doing. Anyone that is even remotely connected at NDSU will tell you that Bohl wasn't involved in really any part of the coaching staff at NDSU. He was the ultimate CEO coach. Delegate everything except a few things. When he left there wasn't a ton that had to change in the staff - he also didn't take many staffers with him. The other factor in that situation that is different is they were going from Jensen to Wentz. Wentz may not have had much/any experience but it was clear that he was “the real deal”. It was known he was going to be really damn good. Maybe not the level he was, but still really damn good.

                          They don’t have this year. Kleiman is gone. The extreme majority of the staff is gone. Entz can talk a big game, but it’s TBD if he can actually do what everyone knew Kleiman could do (Even before he took the job). They also don’t have Wentz or Stick anymore. Stick, like Wentz, was a known product out of HS. He is one of the QB misses that could have changed UNI significantly. While he was a RFr when he started it was clear what his upside was. At this point, no one has any idea what NDSU has. The though is RFr Trey Lance will get the job, but even the connected people at NDSU aren’t sure he’s ready or what they have in him, which is why they brought in Noland. Noland had a pretty good game at ISU, but like every other QB at ISU there is one good game and then they disappear after a week or two after being anointed by ISU fans as the saviors. The senior class they lost is as good of a senior class as they’ve ever had.

                          UNI and SDSU have more reason, as of now on paper, to expect to win the MVFC than NDSU as long as they don’t screw it up. All three will be starting brand new QBs with no experience (potentially all 3 are freshman starters.)

                          2. He has a staff he trusts for the first time in a while. It’s not that he didn’t trust Bond, but I’m not sure there was a great working relationship and cohesion on ideas. Mahaffey comes in as OC – after spending 5 years playing for Farley, time coaching for Farley and time as an OC for Farley. Mahaffey knows, wants, the same type of offense Farley does. Clanton wants the same OL mentality at this point. McCann has the skill guys ready every week and recruits like crazy. That trust is there. Go through the last handful of years that we see everything going wrong and we have Bond, Davis (who is Mike Leach), a Bill Salmon who was half retired while still coaching, Verduzco who was one foot out the door while coaching here.

                          3. His seat is as hot as it can get without him getting burned by it. This could work in the opposite direction and result in him taking tighter control, but I choose to believe (right now) that he realizes letting go of his offensive control will help save him for another tear

                            Ok, so when you're saying "hand it over" your saying relinquish some control, not retiring.

                              I totally agree Clenz. My views tightly align.

                                Projected game times added for road games. (NDSU plays early on Homecoming)

                                God knows what time we'll play our home games because the volleyball schedule isn't out yet and we know that takes priority.
