There was no doubt the Bison coaches had their players more ready to play Northwestern than the Northwestern coaches had their players ready to play the Bison. NDSU was very prepared in the 35-7 win.
Saturday’s demolition of Weber State — 41-0 at the Fargodome — was also an exercise in coaching. NDSU is 3-0 because it has talent and it is well-coached. The Bison did not suffer any type of emotional letdown from the previous week’s beating of a ranked opponent and there was no hint of looking ahead to next weekend’s big bash at highly-ranked Montana State.
The Bison went out and laid a kicking to the Wildcats.
The credit there goes to the men in the dark green shirts.
