Happy Monday, everyone. Wow, it'r really snowing here, we're expecting up to a foot by Wednesday, and we're supposed to get 40 mph winds (or, as we call it in ND, a slight breeze). It should be interesting. I love storms. Al;so, thanks to liveforadrenaline for posting the open thread on Friday, since J-Dog was a no show......again.
I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend, despite our offense's pathetic performance on Thursday. I don't have a lot to say about the game, other than it was ugly and a pathetic display by our offense. They're going to have to step it up on Thursday, because I can guarantee you that 13 points won't be enough against Dallas.
