Will legendary Head Football Coach Bob Green finally lead the Diggers over the despised Saints this year?????


I am sad that I will be in Boston on September 25, the day the Orediggers play the Saints here in Helena for Carroll's homecoming. I always enjoyed hanging out in the little green enclave amongst a sea of purple.

However, Bob Green is the funniest guy on the face of the earth.

2010 Oredigger Football. That made me laugh. Most football teams use X's and O's. These guys probably have to model their plays in 3D with Vulcan or Mincom.

Diggers come back with a resounding defeat of Eastern Oregon, to start off Frontier Conference play at 1 - 0. Meanwhile, the evil catholic empire barely squeaks past Rocky in their opener, and lose two starting offensive linemen in the process.

Me? I'm starting to like Coach Green's prospects for 2010.

Orediggers beat Northern on Saturday. Tied with the Saints for first place in Frontier Conference play.

They host a tough Rocky team this coming Saturday.

GO DIGGERS!!!!

Four game losing streaks will do that to you.

Rocky, Carroll, Tech, Western, Northern, Eastern Oregon....yep, sounds right. We lost some Idaho team last year or so. I think we got two NoDak teams applying for admission.

Correct.

That would be the Dickinson State Black Hawks and the Jamestown Jimmies. Not so sure whether the Jimmies will actually move, seems like a good idea for the Black Hawks.

Do teams sometimes play each other twice or do they have lots o' non-conference games???

Yep. Tech plays Carroll at home and in Helena.

Carroll has now won 42 straight against its Frontier conference opponents.

Tech closes out its season against Western on Saturday......maybe they will be in a double header with the Cowboys.

All evidence to the contrary, ISU is NOT an NAIA team...

Well, its a sad day for the Oredigger faithful, as legendary Head Football Coach Bob Green announced his retirement yesterday after 24 years on top of the digger helm. At least Coach Green ends his career as a winner, with a victory over Western last Saturday (it was a rough weekend for Dillon wasn't it?)



Best wishes for your retirement, coach.

He is a class act. I remember him in my years at Tech-especially noon basketball.
