    Monday -

    High of 38
    30% chance of snow

    The day before the game (Sunday) it is suppose to drop down to a low of 28 and rain all day...meaning the field is going to be froze.

    Not good for fast backs who want to get to the outside. Also, not good for quarterbacks and receivers who try to handle a hard football.

    Also the Titans play the day before so the field probably wont be in good shape.

    The field at LP stadium is one of the hardier grass surfaces, the only worry is the Titans play the Texans Sunday :(

    In a game like this, the edge generally goes to the team with a good variety of straight ahead running rather than speed to the outside. The conditions hinder the speedy backs and receivers as well as the passing by the quarterbacks. The offensive and defensive lines will probably rule the day.

    Didn't we play not so good on ice in Boise a while back?....Hope we play more like Eddi Lee Ivery vs. AF.

    Was that the game where P J Daniels set the bowl rushing record?

    The one he was referring to was in 07 after Chan had been canned and Tenuta was the interim coach.

    What a beat down by Fresno State :( If I remember correctly, our guys didn't want to go to Boise. I also wonder if Tech would have won that game, would Tenuta get the head coaching job?

    Johnson had already been named head coach before the game. I remember seeing him in the press box. It was an ugly game....

    Glad Johnson got the job. I'm actually pretty sold on the guy. We just need to keep improving on the recruiting side. I think we benefit on that score with stability at HC. I was / am a big fan of Ross n O'Leary. CGO recruited better n better during his tenure before he left. I think we will see the same with CPJ.

    Rain, sleet, snow, or sunshine just hope the guys play hard, have fun, and manage a win. Go Jackets!

    Watching the Titans game, the field looks great! No apparent issues with the footing

    I'm glad Johnson got the job as well. The past couple of seasons have been disappointing but I do think he is a good coach for us. I enjoy the option O and I am hoping that Vad or Justin can help take it to another level.
