    Pity that we can't get The College Gameday to come into Lubbers for a game. Hell, they've gone to freaking North Dakota twice, why not for us???


    Best thing for the Lakers to do this year is to stay disciplined in this game. The past couple of years its always seemed like Ferris players have gotten up in Lakers' grills after the play and seemed to have pushed buttons and that got a flag tossed on the Lakers and free yards to Ferris. Cut that shibby out guys. Better to used that fuel on the next play.

    Exactly. Last year in Big Rapids there was what, four unsportsmanlike penalties on GV in the first half? (And several for Ferris as well..). We know it’s going to be chippy but hopefully they keep their heads on straight and let their play do the talking

    Ferris intentionally does just enough to draw a reaction without getting caught themselves and our team has consistently lacked the discipline necessary to not take the bait.

    It is a skill that has been cultivated to our benefit.

    Hope you have your tickets...the game is a sell out...GVSU is selling a few SRO tickets and those will be gone soon...should be a great night of football...safe game to both.

    If weather is nice, I think we might get over 17k finally. Looks like it is gonna be pretty cold, though, which I think is going to hamper student turnout.

    We need Tim Tebow to call out the GV student section to pull their heads out of their rear ends and not only go to the game but stay for the whole game like he did the Alabama student section :)

    Haven't anticipated a big GLIAC football game like this in a long time...looking forward to a great contest; I would much rather watch this than UM - Wisconsin! Don't have a dog in this fight so I can just sit back and enjoy what I expect to be a really great game. I would think the whole GLIAC community will be watching this one.

    Agree. Special teams and making necessary adjustments at half time. Refusing to make adjustments has killed GV in this game since TA arrived at Ferris.

    I would think any passionate GLIAC fan not attending a game then, would. I'm stuck going to a family wedding. I may wind up being that "Richard" staring at his phone during the reception. Arguably one of, if not, the biggest GLIAC match-up in years. Did a Saggy/GV game in the early 2000's trump this one?

    I recall that one as I was living up in the Tri-cities area and Saggy was the talk of D2 up there. Was that the season when GV came back with that miracle win in the PO's? I was listening to that one on the radio though low scoring, it was exciting.

    Just repeating what I was told when we called to try and buy a few extra tickets...I know that Lubbers has several nice areas in which one can stand and get a very good view of the game. I do hope the students will stay for the game and not bail at halftime like they are want to do. I can't imagine it is going to be THAT cold tomorrow night.

    OK, let's let up on the students leaving at half. This is typical nationwide. And, for the GV games I've attended, many have stayed when the games are closer. I'm as big as a fan as most, and I too, would like the student section at least 80% as full as they were at KO, but it's the times we live in. And to all those posting.. let's make sure we all stay to the end when we're at the games. And don't throw that "I have a long drive home" line out there.

    There were a few pretty funny signs on the show this morning. I was hoping they would have done a segment on the BS Lounge... or had Jeff Fox and Dariki Mose do the picks.
