    Try winning a semi-final in Fargo, then.

    If we are 8-3 with losses to Iowa State, NDSU (at Fargo), and either SDSU, SIU or Missouri State, with wins against two of those teams we could be in play for the 8 seed. But at the same time there have been other UNI teams screwed by the committee so I expect that to happen again.

    Had no business beating New Hampshire but David Horne was Walter Payton for 3 hours, it's near physically impossible that the ball got through to Surrency on the 2 point conversion, the worst coaching decision in the history of football and Matt Tharp was so wildly out of position that the ball hit him.

    I could go for some more of that magic, it's been too long.
    And -- it needs to be said -- that team had major, major, major chemistry. That was one of the things discussed when they all came back for their HOF induction a few weeks back. And having traveled with them, I saw it first hand. They took their trust in each other to another level.

    And lots and lots and lots of Panther magic. That season was a movie script with how games played out and big plays were made time and time again when needed most.

    I wondered who would be the first to point that out.

    It's quite clear to me we have to run the table to get a playoff bye. I don't recall 8-3 giving us the 8 seed. So, we need to have it in our collective heads to not lose. Yes, going to Brookings, Normal, and Springfield and leaving with a W.

    The Sapp call was actually a really good one. The receiver wasn't defenseless and he hit him with his facemask, not the crown of the helmet.

    That said, that isn't a play that you should be making on a consistent basis. He's a guy we need on the field as there's a pretty significant drop off to Kibbe. I'm actually guessing he'd have gone with Flater in the middle, moved Van Whye to the hybrid and moved Lambert back.

    Let's remember that NDSU was by far the best defense that Day has faced. He is only what, 3-4 games (depending how you want to count his time so far) into a live action at the collegiate level. It will be interesting to see how he progresses in the next several weeks against very good teams.

    The number of penalties we are racking up is just something awful. As bad as it was, we dodged several, most notably the Benny Sapp targeting call. It could easily have been much worse outcome if Sapp is off the field most of the game.

    Yes, sloppy penalties, giving up big plays, and not capitalizing on their early turnover. Its literally the same script every game there I swear. You can’t just be 1 point better than them there and expect to win. You have to play 10 points better than them because they are going to get calls and break a big play.

    There were encouraging things in the game that I hope we can continue to build on. We outgained them, had some success in the running game, and had some impressive downfield throws.
