Tonight’s NerdStat is a number that’s based on the work that happens before fall camp begins and it’s the process that will start soon for the 2013 season; summer workouts.
Countdown To 2013: NerdStat #82:
- 235-61: That’s the amount that NDSU outscored opponents in the 2nd half last season. That’s a remarkable statistic and it shows a couple things to me; that the coaching staff is tremendous at making adjustments in the locker room; several games come to my mind from last season where that exact strategy was used; SDSU – Game 1; Illinois State and Georgia Southern for starters. It also shows the depth on this team not to tire but to get better as the game goes along; something that is shown in great teams and the Bison have that quality. That is attributable to the workouts that Jim Kramer puts the team thru in June and July and they’ve had a motto to “Win the 2nd half”. Last year’s team certainly lived up to that and will have to have the same characteristics for this upcoming season to make another long playoff run.
