The number of big plays the Montana State defense has given up so far this season gives some of the flashbacks to the Bobcats’ 2015 team.

Unlike 2015, however, MSU’s defense has been solid between getting ripped off by opposing offenses and some of those breakdowns have gone against special team coverage units.

In 2015, MSU allowed 34.3 points per game, 247.5 rushing yards, 225.1 passing yards, and 472.6 total yards for the season. It’s not as bad so far in 2022, as the Bobcats are allowing 33.3 points per game, 161.8 rushing, 200.8 passing and 362.6 total offense (these numbers include one loss 68-28 against a strong Oregon State team out of the PAC-12, MSU played no FBS team in 2015 and played Division II Fort Lewis that year).

In four games this season, the MSU defense has given up 10 plays for 25 yards and six for 30 (80, 75, 66, 56, 31, 31, 28, 27, 26, and 26 yards). Special teams coverage units allowed a 38-yard run on a false punt, 80 and 33-yard punt returns, and an 80-yard kickoff return.

“That can’t be our MO,” MSU head coach Brent Vigen said after the Gold Rush game against McNeese State. “We have to make the teams go far and we didn’t do that tonight.”

In four games in 2015, MSU allowed 15 plays for 25 yards and 12 for 30 (78, 62, 45, 44, 43, 38, 36, 35, 34, 33, 32, 31, 28, 27, and 26 ) and one of those teams was Fort Lewis, which gained 277 yards that day. This team would go on to allow 38 plays for 25 yards during the season, including 30 for 30 yards.

In a game against Portland State, the Vikings had five runners with 10 yards or more and seven receivers with receptions of 15 yards or more. Even East Tennessee State, which was in its first season as a football program and was staffed almost exclusively by freshmen, had plays for 37 and 29 yards. The Buccaneers unexpectedly gained 376 yards that night. Despite his 63-7 victory, the season-ending performance played a role in the sacking of Rob Ash, who was the winningest coach in MSU history.

While the 2022 Bobcats are nowhere near the pace of the 2015 team, big games are always a concern. They averted disaster last Saturday in Cheney, Wash., where the Eagles swung out and connected for 56-yard and 28-yard touchdown passes by Micah Smith and a 14-10 lead. The MSU defense settled after that and allowed just 104 yards over the next 40:06, but a whopping 80-yard connection between EWU quarterback Gunner Talkington and wide receiver Freddie Roberson not only blew up this run, but brought all the momentum back to EWU. foster.

The McNeese State game was similar. Morehead State had no significant offensive plays and Oregon State had no plays for 30 yards or more outside of special teams returns. But Beavers quarterback Chance Nolan averaged 14.7 yards per pass and threw 11 strikes on first down to go along with four touchdowns.

The Cowboys hit the Bobcats early with a 75-yard touchdown run, then had a 66-yard TD pass play. They mixed in a pair of 31-yard runs that caught Vigen’s eye.

“We gave up a couple big plays and that’s not where we want to be,” Vigen said after McNeese State’s win. “At the end of the day, we got up when needed.”

“Two big games in particular. I think the first one (75-yard TD run) we were a little too aggressive at the back and they came into the secondary and we had no one home. The second (66-yard TD pass play that had about 55 yards after the catch) we missed a few tackles.

Unlike 2015, the Bobcats have been very strong between big plays. McNeese gained 203 yards on four plays, but only 100 yards on his other 44 plays. EWU had 164 yards on three plays, but only 175 on the other 52 plays it ran.

The Bobcats gave up 193 yards in returns in the third quarter alone against Oregon State and the Beavers were able to move the ball at will throughout the game as MSU only got saves when OSU had was held to a field goal attempt which she missed and when the Beavers took a knee late in the game.

Montana State will be looking to clean up mistakes on defense this Saturday night when they take on UC Davis at Bobcat Stadium at 8:15 a.m.

Trans Faith Leaders Say Scripture Should Inspire Inclusive Congregations https://heartofamericanorthwest.org/trans-faith-leaders-say-scripture-should-inspire-inclusive-congregations/ Sun, 25 Sep 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://heartofamericanorthwest.org/trans-faith-leaders-say-scripture-should-inspire-inclusive-congregations/ PORTLAND, Ore.—Something as small as signs reading “men” and “women” on restrooms at a place of worship can close the door to trans people. “For me, as a non-binary person, I’ve been to so many churches where there’s no bathroom that I feel like I can use,” says AJ Buckley, an Episcopal priest at Portland, […]]]>

PORTLAND, Ore.—Something as small as signs reading “men” and “women” on restrooms at a place of worship can close the door to trans people.

“For me, as a non-binary person, I’ve been to so many churches where there’s no bathroom that I feel like I can use,” says AJ Buckley, an Episcopal priest at Portland, Ore. “And so I just won’t go to the bathroom there.”

Churches are charged with living the message of the Bible both from the pulpit and in the pews.

And it’s hard to connect to spiritual concerns if those present to sing and pray literally can’t be physically comfortable.

That’s why Saint David of Wales Episcopal Church in Portland, where Buckley has been associate rector for eight years, made changes like putting up signs saying anyone can use any bathroom, including pronouns on name tags and preaching to “brothers and sisters in Christ” rather than to brothers and sisters.

“Sometimes we’ll say, ‘God loves you,’ but we don’t always experience it in church,” Buckley says. “And so to have these things that say you’re really wanted here, [means] we’re glad you’re here.”

Reverend AJ Buckley is Associate Rector of St David’s Episcopal Church of Wales and a member of the Diocese of Oregon Task Force implementing gender change and education.

Pro-trans voices emerge within Christianity

Evangelical Christianity has played a big role in the political debate on transgender issues and in the wave of legislation to which it has led. And so this position is widely known: God created humans, separated into male and female – innate and immutable categories.

But religions speak with more than one voice. And other Christians use their scriptures to embrace a broader understanding of gender.

Shannon TL Kearns is the first openly transgender man ordained in the Old Catholic Church, a denomination that split from Rome after the first Vatican Council in the 19th century. He is co-founder of QueerTheology.com and author of the book In The Margins: A Transgender Man’s Journey with Scripture.

“The world of gender in the Bible is much more complex than what I was taught growing up as an evangelical,” Kearns says, pointing to many stories of biblical characters transgressing gender norms.

“We have women who are judges. We have men who spend their time in the kitchen. There are eunuchs, who were considered this kind of other third sex,” he says.

Many Christians Are Rethinking Bible Stories They Think They Already Know

Theology is stories. And Kearns says understanding the Bible’s message about trans people is partly about rediscovering those particular stories. But, in a broader sense, it’s about asking harder questions about the stories Christians think they already know.

For example, in Genesis, angels come to Sodom and Gomorrah, and the townspeople threaten to rape them. The destruction of these cities is often seen as God’s condemnation of homosexuality. But it could be read as a lesson in welcoming the stranger.

“When we look at a passage like Sodom and Gomorrah, we look at places where – where could we still be inhospitable to people today?” Kearns asks. “Do we benefit from systems that harm other people?

Sometimes showing hospitality is as simple as a sign on a bathroom door. And sometimes it’s harder. Not all congregations, not all Christians welcome these changes. Theologian and ordained Baptist minister Robyn Henderson-Espinoza says conflict is not new to Christianity and is central to understanding the story of Jesus.

“I follow the story of a brown Palestinian Jew who was executed by the Roman Empire,” says Henderson-Espinoza. “And this story is painful.”

But Henderson-Espinoza, author of the book Body Becoming: A Path to Our Liberation, says this refocusing of history from the perspective of the powerless rather than the perspective of the powerful is the work of Christianity. And this refocusing has implications for trans people today.

“I think that’s how we bring heaven to Earth: to have these difficult conversations and create more relationships, and create more opportunities to relate to difference.”

Trans people read themselves in scripture the same way all people see themselves in biblical characters

If you look in the Bible, the stories of difference are told there too Kearns theologian. The arc of scripture putting the most marginalized people at the center has always been there. But he’s not surprised it wasn’t always said that way.

“White, cisgender heterosexual men — they read their specificity and uniqueness and call it universal. And that’s the real damage,” Kearns says.

Kearns says it’s not that reading from a particular point of view, from a particular experience, is wrong – it’s the way Scripture has always been read and interpreted. People just need to be aware of what they are doing. And broaden the conversation to include all voices.

“I think we all read ourselves in the scriptures,” Kearns says. “I think the most important thing is that people in marginalized communities are honest about what they’re doing.”

Trans Christians practice a faith that matches their bodies

Good stories survive because they welcome a range of readers into their world. They don’t define the meaning—they reveal it to those who enter the story.

Austen Hartke, Lutheran theologian and founder of the Transmission Ministry Collective, asks the question: “If you believe, like me, that God made me on purpose, then what does that mean I am allowed to do to manage my body?, to live a healthy and full life?

Hartke, who is also the author of Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians, says, “In the same way that if God made someone myopic, they are allowed to wear glasses.”

He says it’s part of Jesus’ call to abundant life. It is not a profanation; it’s co-creation. Holy work.

“Yes, our bodies are temples,” says Hartke. “But temples change.”

And Hartke says the blueprint for that change is in the text.

St. David of Wales' Episcopal Church sees its mission as taking ordinary things (the bread, the wine, the congregation) and making them holy through prayer, song, and story.

St. David of Wales’ Episcopal Church sees its mission as taking ordinary things (the bread, the wine, the congregation) and making them holy through prayer, song, and story.

“Even though Genesis One talks about binaries in the world, we know those binaries aren’t as crisp as they are in this one text.”

It’s not just man and woman, land and water.

“So, for example,” he says, “God creates day and night – it says nothing about dawn or dusk.”

But these intermediate places exist. Hartke says there is a richness in them and in the theology that emerges from them. Because they tell a fuller story of existence in this sacred world.

“If we say God is alpha and omega, we don’t mean God is just A and Z,” Hartke says. “We mean that God is everything.”

(Editor’s note: University of Montana press release)

MISSOULA — Camellia Xu, who posted shutouts in both Boise State and North Dakota State as the Montana football team wrapped up its non-conference schedule, was named the defensive player of Big Sky conference week by the league office.

The second was honored for the first time this season. She was named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week six times last fall en route to Big Sky Goalie of the Year and All-League First Team honors.

Xu, who made four saves, kept the Broncos out of the net Thursday at home. The 0-0 tie was Montana‘s fifth straight shutout against Boise State and extended the Grizzlies’ unbeaten streak against the Broncos to nine games, dating back to 2009.

Boise State had scored 10 goals in three games heading into Montana, including three in a road win over Oregon. The Broncos, who had only been shut out this season by Oregon State, scored four goals Sunday in an Eastern Washington shutout.

Xu made three saves Sunday as Montana blanked North Dakota State 3-0. After playing an intense 90 minutes in Thursday’s game, the Grizzlies gave Xu an offensive assist against the Bison, scoring in the eighth, 38th and 84th minutes.

The win was Montana’s first against North Dakota State since 2006. The Grizzlies had scored just one goal against the Bison in the teams’ three previous matchups.

Last week’s shutouts gave Xu six on the season, 17 for his career, a total that already ranks fourth in program history. She lowered her goals-against-average this fall to 0.70, which leads the Big Sky Conference.

Xu is tied for third nationally in shutouts, one ahead of NCAA leaders Maddy Anderson of Mississippi State and Payton Yates of North Alabama.

After allowing six goals in the first four games of the season – two each in Pittsburgh, Wyoming and Portland – Montana has allowed only one in its last six games, Fresno State in the 90th minute which allowed the Bulldogs to escape Missoula with a 1-1 draw. .

Montana, which has the Big Sky’s best RPI of 120, is 3-0-3 over its last six games and will lead that six-game unbeaten streak at the start of its Big Sky Conference schedule. which opens this week with games in Sacramento State and Portland State.

A wildfire in western Montana has spread over 1,000 acres, tearing through the Helena National Forest.

The No Grass Creek Fire is located in the Helena Ranger District, an area that has experienced high tree mortality.

The 1,003-acre blaze is 0% contained and the Powell County Sheriff’s Office said fire resources assessed values ​​at risk.

Due to the current state of deadwood in the area, the Forest Service said it was “neither safe nor effective to send firefighters to the area.”

AIR QUALITY IN MONTANA DETERIORATES DUE TO SMOKE FROM WILDFIRES

“Firefighters manage from the air, while other firefighters observe the progress, activity and general fire behavior in the planning area from various vantage points across the district,” it said. he declares.

A closing order is in effect around the fire.

Additionally, due to the fire’s remote location, no homes or private property are threatened by the No Grass Creek Fire, allowing the fire to function naturally and provide ecological benefits.

However, wildfire smoke from that blaze and others in the region has forced authorities to issue air quality alerts for most western counties.

MONTANA’S NEWEST WILDFIRE QUADS IN SIZE, BUT YET NOT THREATENING HOMES: OFFICIALS

The state Department of Environmental Quality said Monday that air quality had reached unhealthy levels.

“Numerous active wildfires in western Montana, Idaho and eastern Oregon are emitting smoke that has blanketed much of the state,” he warned.

The Forest Service said the district has developed a management strategy based on real-time factors, as well as site-specific weather forecasts.

The sheriff’s office says cooler conditions are expected throughout the week as some Pacific moisture begins to move into the fire zone.

  • Unhealthy for sensitive groups (orange) in Libby, Flathead Valley, Missoula, Butte, Helena, and Lewistown.
  • Moderate (yellow) in Great Falls, Cut Bank, Malta, Seeley Lake, Dillon, Bozeman and Billings.

Most other areas in the state are currently listed at “good” or “moderate” air quality levels.

Here are the six color-coded classifications of air quality according to the DEQ:

  • BROWN: Dangerous – Health warning of emergency conditions: everyone is more likely to be affected.
  • PURPLE: Very unhealthy – health alert – the risk of health effects is increased for everyone.
  • RED: unhealthy – some members of the general public may experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more severe health effects.
  • ORANGE: unhealthy for sensitive groups – members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is less likely to be affected.
  • YELLOW: Moderate – air quality is acceptable. However, there may be a risk for some people, especially those who are particularly sensitive to air pollution.
  • GREEN: Good – air quality is satisfactory and air pollution poses little or no risk.

When the air quality is DANGEROUS, all children and adults should avoid or limit all exertion outdoors.

When the air quality is VERY UNHEALTHY, active children and adults, and people with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.

When the air quality is NOT HEALTHY, people with heart or lung disease, smokers, children and the elderly should limit strenuous or prolonged exertion and limit time spent outdoors. People with asthma should follow their asthma management plan. People with symptoms of heart or lung disease associated with smoke exposure should contact their health care provider.

When the air quality is NOT HEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS, people with heart or lung conditions, children and the elderly should limit prolonged outdoor exertion. Anyone with symptoms of heart or lung disease associated with smoke exposure should contact their health care provider.

When air quality is MODERATE, particularly sensitive individuals should consider limiting prolonged outdoor exertion.

When the air quality is GOOD, no health impacts are expected when the air quality is within this range
