North Dakota State Picks Up Where it Left Off

Recommended Posts

o

 

Last year, North Dakota State not only won their 3rd consecutive I-AA National Championship ........

 

A) They blew out each and every playoff opponent (4-0) in the process.

B) They defeated a Division 1-A school that beat Michigan in a lower-tier bowl.

C) They finished the highest ranking ever for a 1-AA team, at # 29 in the AP poll.

North Dakota State finished the season at 15-0, including blowouts of all 4 playoff opponents and a win over Division I-A Kansas State (8-5), who beat Michigan in a lower-tier bowl game.

They were ranked # 35 in the AP poll and # 22 by Sagarin before the start of the I-A bowl games.

They probably won't get it, but they have an outside shot at becoming the first I-AA team ever (1978-present) to finish the season in the Top-25. If not, they will likely wind up being the highest ranked I-AA team ever, probably between # 26 and # 30.

Now, the Bison they picked up right where they left off, thumping Division I-A Iowa State on their homefield by a score of 34-14.

North Dakota State spotted the Cyclones 14 points before reeling off 34 unanswered points of their own, to win going away.

It was also their 5th consecutive win against Division I-A teams.

I've been saying for a year now that North Dakota should be moved up a division. Hell, put them in a lower BCS bowl this year against a D1 team (ACC,Big10, or something)and see how they do. They have been the big fish in the small pond for years, you figure the team would want to move up.

Although they actually lost a game earlier this year, which snapped their 33-game winning streak, North Dakota State's is playing tomorrow night in the I-AA semifinals.

They will be trying to win their 4th consecutive I-AA national championship.

Their overall record is 56-3 over the last 4 years.

They won tonight. It's pretty remarkable what they've accomplished.

Every year for the past few years they and their rather large, rabid fan base, takes over Frisco, TX (close to where I live) for a week. It's nuts at the local bars. They literally take them over.

I watched a little bit of the championship game and I was shocked by how loud their fans were. Pretty impressive for a I-AA team.

The Bison FINALLY had their string of 5 consecutive national championships stopped.

Their streak (2011-2015) is the longest consecutive national championship streak in college football ever at any level (Division I-A, Division 1-AA, Division II, and Division III.)

 

Since the advent of Division i-AA in 1977, North Dakota State became the only I-AA school ever to finish in the Division I-A rankings at season's end, finishing at #29 in 2013.

They also are currently riding a winning streak of 6 consecutive wins against Division I-A opponents, which is an all-time record for a Division I-AA school.

    • Stewart wasn't a reach. Grenier was a reach IMO but that was more so for positional need than trying to save money (which, IMO, is an even worse reason). I think the Hobgood pick is the only one that really applies to this argument.  Jordan definitely said that he had Hogbood ranked similar to some others and that we was trying to save money to spend later in the draft (which he did). But ultimately, no, I see very little evidence that this is an organizational strategy by the Orioles.  They've picked highly ranked players at the top spots many times before.  The Kjerstad pick, to date, has been nothing more than unforeseeable bad luck.
    • Well, I intentionally don’t follow the various draft rankings and pundit evaluations very closely.   I have no idea if Lawler is the best talent in the draft, how much better he is than the next guy we might pick, or what his demands are compared to other players’.   I do know that a lot of highly touted players don’t pan out, so I do think there’s risk in putting all your eggs in one basket and taking the guy you like best at the expense of essentially punting on a second round pick.   But it all boils down to evaluations.   
    • Well, he was never going to stick at second.  He is terrible over there. He has a big 2019 and struggled last year and early this year before being sent down.  Obviously the sample sizes are small and he turns 25 in August, so he has time to get back to where he was. His OPS is very high since being sent back down.
    • I don’t think Stewart was necessarily a reach.   Here’s a BA mock that had Stewart going no. 20 to Oakland.   Ironically, that same mock had us taking Richie Martin.  In reality, those picks were reversed.   https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.baseballamerica.com/stories/mlb-mock-draft-2015-version-5-1/%3famphtml In any event, I don’t think picks made by Andy MacPhail, Dan Duquette and their scouting directors have anything to do with Elias’ draft philosophy.   Nor do I think ownership is involved.     
    • If one of these arms throws “well” the rest of the year that would be an improvement. 
    • You pay him.  If he is the best talent in the draft, as a lot of people think, you draft him and sign him.  I would rather have elite talent than a few good guys. Besides, he can demand what he wants but when push to comes to shove, my bet is he doesn’t walk away from 6.5-7M.(which is lower than 1st pick money but higher than 5th pick money)
    • Rotation is 12-34 with an ERA of 5.73. By far the worst ERA in the AL. Next closest is Minnesota at 5.12. Fewest innings pitched but most HR’s allowed.     The position player group has a below average defense and ranks 11th in RPG. It’s not good but it’s not this level of bad. Team is still out scoring the Yankees.    They better not try this again next year. I’m all for giving young arms a shot but they need at least one arm to pair with Means that’s not a reclamation project.
