Griz coach addresses offensive issues

missoulian.com — Inconsistency has been a bugaboo for Montana's offense this season. On occasion the 12th-ranked Grizzly football team has gotten away with sputtering, winning close calls against South Dakota and North Dakota. Other times inconsistency has taken a serious toll, such as last week in a 41-21 loss at Cal Poly.

Hornets' explosive offense to test Grizzlies

missoulian.com — Garrett Safron and his pals put up 48 points on Montana's defense a year ago, so you know they're not going to be intimidated coming to Missoula. Safron, Sacramento State's 6-foot-1 senior quarterback, remembers vividly last November's home overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

Griz, Hornets looking to regroup

missoulian.com — The buzzword word of the week for the Montana and Sacramento State football teams is resilience. Both squads are coming off disappointing losses to Cal Poly. The Griz dropped a 41-21 road decision on Saturday and the Hornets, idle last weekend, have had almost two weeks to mull over a 56-28 home loss to the Mustangs.

Griz learn tough lessons against Mustangs

missoulian.com — SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Whatever it is Cal Poly has been eating at halftime, there's a couple of Big Sky Conference teams that could use the recipe.

Pride of Zootown: Wagenmann has come a long way since his days at Sentinel

missoulian.com — If ever there was a Montana Grizzly tailor-made to be a Missoula icon, it's Zack Wagenmann. Just like Missoula, Wags is easygoing, open-minded and bold enough to do his own thing no matter what outsiders think.

Surging Griz, Mustangs on collision course

missoulian.com — SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The plush patch of grass Cal Poly calls home was rough on Montana's football team the last time it visited. The Grizzlies brought a spiffy No. 1 ranking into Alex G. Spanos Stadium in 2010 and dropped a 35-33 decision in front of a frenetic crowd.

Haynes' return bolsters Grizzly offense for road trip to California

missoulian.com — Sean Haynes compared it to having someone hold him under water for seven months. The speedy senior wide receiver for the seventh-ranked Montana football team overcame more than his share of adversity to make his way back into the lineup last Saturday.

Cal Poly piloted by dynamic leaders

missoulian.com — Whether he's prowling the middle for Cal Poly's defense or beating his buddies in a best beard contest, Nick Dzubnar is one tenacious competitor. The senior linebacker and NFL hopeful will do his best to make things hairy for Montana's offense on Saturday when the Mustangs play host to the seventh-ranked Grizzlies in San Luis Obispo, California.
