    Default NSIC Pick'Em Week #1 - Chat

    Might as well get the chat thread going too...

    Given past history, I think most of the games are close to a slam-dunk as far as picks go.

    The two that made me scratch my head the most was Northern at Bemidji, and Augie at Upper Iowa. In both cases I went with the road team, but I could see those going either way.

    Interesting to see Minot State getting a little love on the pic thread. I think they are/have improved, but to that extent?

    I thought their record didn't reflect their true ability last year. Six of their losses were within one score, so they were pretty close to having a much better season than they did.

    However they did lose to Duluth 37-0. I know every year is a new year, but it seems like picking them to beat Duluth this year is a long shot. I would think for that to happen Minot would have had to improve dramatically during the off-season and Duluth would have to have a big fall off.

    Two games in the South that have the potential to be much closer and more entertaining games than most would expect:
    CSP vs. USF / Winona vs. WSC

    Of course, those could also be extreme blowouts too!

    Just saw this on Twitter. Does this mean that the Marauder is now gone, or will they use both.

    Maybe I'll have to get an orange cap with the new design on it. The one that I have now was just blue with an orange M that I got through LIDS.

    New one:

    From their press release, sounds like a complete rebrand. Meaning they won't use the old anymore.

    The old logo got the same fate as the triple option.

    Just a reminder that the pick 'em threads should only be used for stating your picks. Any comments or banter should be directed to the respective chat thread: http://www.d2messageboard.com/showthread.php?t=91893

    Trying to make this easier for WCSSuperFan as he spends a lot of time putting the pick 'em contest together for us every year. :)


    Give the newfer a break. BFD. He used two lines. Heard nothin' from WCSSF. I'm guessin' you're still p***ed off Senior Weiner closed.

    I thought I was rather nice about it. Even included a smiley face. Someone pee in your Cheerios this morning?

    D**n me. I always forget smiley faces make everythin' okay. And the cereal comment was equally childish.

    Minot has about a 1% chance in this game. But in 2015 Minot had a halftime lead. haha

    I realize that is probably not the case, the venom being spewed just brought back memories of my long lost friend

    That was the most anticlimactic thing I've seen in a while. It's the EXACT same logo but mirrored. The pirate is simply looking the other direction with the patch on the opposite eye. haha Seriously? Rebranding? Come on, Mary.

    I responded to your urine reference with one of my own. I should have been bigger than that. I apologize.

    In all honesty, I was trying to be helpful with my original post about keeping the pick 'em thread clear of chatter to make things easier for superfan. The written word doesn't always convey mood accurately, so again I apologize if that post appeared harsh.

    I fully expect Minot to have a much closer game this year than they did last. In fact, I fully expect Minot to have a much better season this year than last.
