Weber State Football Gameday Playoff Thread: WSU v. Chattanooga

FCS Playoffs: Weber State wants to pitch perfect game against Chattanooga

The Weber State football team will take on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in the first round of the 2016 NCAA FCS Playoffs Saturday in Chattanooga. Here's the lede from this morning's Standard-Examiner story Wildcats Fans:
OGDEN — The Weber State football team accomplished its goal of making the FCS Playoffs. Now, the Wildcats face the daunting task of traveling to take on the Chattanooga Mocs of the Southern Conference.
Chattanooga was ranked in the STATS Top 25 FCS poll every week this season, sometimes as high as No. 5. At 8-3, the Mocs now sit at No. 11, while Weber State has cracked the rankings for the first time all season at No. 25.
“When you get to this stage, everyone’s really good,” WSU head coach Jay Hill said. “They’re exactly what you would expect a playoff team to look like. This is a team that hung with Alabama last week for three quarters. They’re exactly what a Top 25 FCS team should look like.”
Read Brandon Garside's full writeup here:
Saturday’s game will kickoff at 12 p.m. MST from Finley Stadium in Chattanooga. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3 with Jim Barbar and Watson Brown on the call. ESPN3 is available online as well as on the Watch ESPN Apps. It will also be broadcast on  1430 KLO radio with Tony Parks and former WSU head coach and Athletic Director Jerry Graybeal on the call.

Update 11/26/16 5:31 p.m.: What a bummer, dang!
Frankly, folks we never expected our Wildcats to fall down and play dead, as they did today.

WSU Game Day Thread: WSU v. Cal Poly

WSU Wildcats snap two-game losing streak, beat Cal Poly 22-15

Here's the lede from yesterday's pre-game Standard-Examiner story:
OGDEN — Weber State head coach Jay Hill said the Wildcats’ loss to Northern Arizona was painful, but his team still has a lot at stake with No. 16 Cal Poly making the trip to Stewart Stadium on Saturday.
“Not all’s lost. We’ve got an opportunity to beat a really good team in Cal Poly,” Hill said after practice Thursday. “That in and of itself is a big enough challenge. We’ve got another opportunity to have a winning record with this game, we’ve got another opportunity to reach a bunch of goals that are still out there for us.
“If they think all’s lost because we lost two in the row, they’re crazy. There’s a lot to play for right now.”
Hill believes seven wins and finishing fourth in the Big Sky should be enough to be selected for the FCS Playoffs.
Check out Brandon Garside's full writeup here:
Coach Hill makes it clear what needs to happen to win for  the Wildcats squad today, and for their ultimate FCS Playoffs qualification:
We’ve got to have toughness. We’ve got to swarm tackle, we’ve got to get all of our guys to the ball,” Hill said. “The offense has got to be productive We’ve got to put points on the board when the offense is out there, and the defense has got to find ways out of drives.”
The game kicks off at noon today inside Stewart Stadium and will be broadcast on KJZZ TV,  as well as 1430 AM KLO.

Update 11/12/16 3:00 p.m.:

Too cool. Wildcats fans, no?
We'll sit tight with this encouraging SL-Trib  story, unless and until our home-town newspaper (the Standard-Examiner)  gets off its ass, and manages to get its own WSU football story up.

Update 11/12/16 10:00 p.m.:

The Standard's Brandon Garside has his own story on tonight's big WSU win:
Needless to say, the surfer dude/journalists around San Luis Obispo ain't so happy with tonight's game outcome:
The Wildcats finish the regular season at Idaho State next weekend, a game that kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19.

Update 11/13/16 10:00 a.m.: Added bonus.  Check out Brandon Garside's game highlights video:

Weber State University Game Day Thread: WSU v. Northern Arizona U.

When our Wildcats suck, they always Suck Big-time, No?

Our Weber State Wildcats are back home at Stewart Stadium this afternoon. Here's the lede from yestrerday's Standard-Examiner Story:
OGDEN — The Weber State Wildcats’ loss to the North Dakota Fighting Hawks marked the end of the program’s longest winning streak since 2008, but with three games left on the schedule — two of which are at home — the Wildcats still have an FCS playoff appearance to fight for.
Weber State’s quest for the playoffs continues this weekend as the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks (4-4, 3-2 BSC) make the trip to Ogden as head coach Jay Hill looks to earn his first win over NAU.
Read Brandon Garside's full Standard-Examiner pre-game writweup here:
More details from Mr. Garside:
NAU was picked in the preseason polls to win the conference, but losses to Eastern Washington and Northern Colorado out of the gate have kept the team in the middle of the Big Sky pack.
Since then, NAU is the winner of three straight, most recently an impressive 45-34 win over then-No. 10 Montana.
“They’re very talented,” WSU Coach Hill said. “Their wide receivers are outstanding, in my opinion. They do a great job getting the ball down the field. They’re very sound on defense. Bottom line, it’s another big challenge in the Big Sky this week. We’re excited. We’re excited to be back home.”
Kickoff is scheduled for noon Saturday, Nov. 5, at Stewart Stadium. The game will be broadcast on KJZZ TV and air on 1430 AM KLO, with Steve Klauke and David Hale on the radio call.

Go, Wildcats!

Update 11/5/16 8:32 pm;  Well... that certainly sucked, dinnit, eh Wildcats fans?
When our Wildcats suck, they always Suck Big-time, No?

Get yer shit together please, WSU Wildcats.  Pretty please with sugar on it, ferchissake!

As a followup to our WCF article of 10/31/16, The Standard has a Killer editorial today, exposing the gross ignorance and extremely bad manners of this little GOP twit, Leg 9 GOP Rep Jeremy Peterson, who, for unknown reasons, still remains a viable GOP candididate in Utah's brain-dead Wiener County GOP Asshole brigade.
Read up, people:
Anyone who's tempted to vote for this idiot Jeremy Peterson is welcome to borrow my .44 Magnum revolver, to shoot yourself in the head.

Faux News Dumbasses Apologize For Serially Lying; and Then Urge Their Brain-dead Readers: Vote Trump!
