I am surprised to say that he has been remarkedly well restrained today.

That aside, I was somewhat surprised to see how much the Cats controlled the line of scrimmage. Griz definitely need bigger linemen.

Of course, it is tough to recruit a big corn fed eastern Montana farm boy to be a lineman, when all you can offer is a creative writing degree.

Perhaps fatherhood explains muley's calm demeanor.

I thought the Bobcats played the Grizzlies? This was more like the Robertcats played Los Tres osa.

Going into the game yesterday, the Cats were about a touchdown underdog at home. Based on what I had seen from the Bobcats in Greeley a couple of weeks ago and the griz dismantling Weber at home, I thought this was about right. I figured this game would be a close one, both teams with about an equal chance to win. Some of the predictions by griz fans were absolutely ridiculous, with the griz winning by 21, 28, 40 or more points. No way this Cats team would get blown out at home like that. But the #8 ranked Cats completely destroyed the #3 ranked griz in the most lopsided win in the Brawl in a long time. I was not completely surprised by this outcome. The Cats team yesterday played more closely to their potential than any game this year, even with their best player on the bench. The young QB, Rovig was not spectacular but completed enough passes to keep the griz defense honest and didn't throw any interceptions. The line of scrimmage was controlled by the Cats limiting the griz to only 241 total yards while the Cats were able to rush for 388, with 488 total yards. The time of possession was equally lopsided. This was a great win for MSU football and coach Choate.

Both teams will be in the FCS playoffs. I can now return to cheering on both Montana teams and hope they both represent our state well.

Not only are both teams in the playoffs, both are seeded, both get first-round byes, and both get to host a second-round game! HOW COOL IS THAT!

Best of luck to BOTH Cats and Griz. The 2 are on opposite sides of the playoff bracket so they would not meet in the playoffs unless they did so in the national championship...don't think that will come to fruition, but a guy can dream!

I was confused by this "Brawl of the Wild" thing. Turns out, it was made up around 2010 for an advertising campaign. I still call it the Cat/Griz Game and I care about just as much now as I did when I was back in college, which is to say, not at all.
