"Trust your defense," is an outdated cliche. Zero evidence that you should trust your defense today (46 first half points). 20 yards of field position is basically nothing.


Shiloh didn't score after that punt...the actually exchanged punts. The coaches were both probably playing the 'field position' game...worked better for the Warbirds then the Skyhawks (Foertsch had big run after Shiloh's punt).

9-Man in ND is all about speed with all this extra space. I'd be interested to see some of the scores in ND if they did like MN and narrowed the field?!


The width of a MN 9-man football the 40 yd width scoring would probably go down, but the game would be more realistic. IMO


Haha more realistic!!! More realistic like watching Shanley and St. Mary’s have to beat the 8 other teams in their class so they can play each other every year ?

The width of a MN 9-man football field is 40 yards. A regulation football field is 53 yards wide. If ND adopted the 40 yd width scoring would probably go down, but the game would be more realistic. IMO

Some 9-man football fans just don’t get it. Narrowing the field would improve the quality of the game. IMO.

I should have used the word interesting in place of realistic. There wasn’t any intention to offend anyone.

Yesterday’s championship game was very entertaining regardless of the dimensions of the field. Congratulations to Wyndmere-Linderwood !

I’m confused. Is this a thread about 9-man football, AA football, or the determination of what is or is not realistic? C’mon, let’s all try to be adults here.
