    Yeah, I remember the men's basketball sucking while I was in school and directly before and after. I have never thought of it as a particularly strong program.

    This was the post I replied to first and to which I was referencing.

    I was not thinking expectations shouldn't be high but some people want to fire coaches almost immediately after they have any struggles. We live in a society where people see one team have success right out of the gate with a new coach but that isn't normal or usually sustainable. NDSU didn't become great in a year or two but they had the right coach and had tremendous recruiting class and took off. It is the same people spewing constant negativity on the board and it gets old. I am pretty sure everyone knows where they stand because it is posted repeatedly. If you have to keep replacing coaches all the time it is a sign you have problems, sometimes patience is needed. Now this isn't directly related to Jones as I don't follow basketball enough to have a reasonable opinion about him. But the Fire Hak crowd several years back and people calling for Bubba's head after a bad and injury plagued season is foolish. Did the basketball team win a conference title recently?

    Do you feel like this about every UND sport? It sure seems like it.

    This is interesting to me because I agree with a lot of what people on the board are saying both ways. For me, the bottom line is that Geno needs to do what he thinks is best for him and his future. Right or wrong it is for him to decide and the current rules allow for it to happen. It is unfortunate that loyalty to a school, program, and coach is largely a thing of the past.

    A lot of the time I feel like consistent play execution is a big issue for the offense. It is also apparent we don't have the horses up front for some of the run game schemes and they need to make some adjustments. You can have a great offensive play call but if timing is off even a little the play is blown. One guy misses his assignment the play will likely fail. Consistency is huge and I think it was a major problem last season.

    Yes, god forbid players have any personal responsibility for F"ing up.

    What really bothers me is that they attempted to flee but couldn't get away. We clearly need to recruit my speed to this football team.

    I understand your point but what are you really looking for? A team only has so many offensive plays in a game and the UND team philosophy is clearly to eat clock and run fewer actual plays in order to protect the defense as much as possible. John should get more touches than 7, 9, and 8 in games. Was he hurt or dinged up in any of those games? Brady needs carries as well because many times he was the better RB always getting forward and not losing yards. James looked pretty good as well but once again to get him more carries you need to take them from another player. Most people on the message board seem to want the offense to open up and pass more which is fine but that would also take carries away from the backs. Rudolph didn't throw much to the RB's in the flats but that might be because almost every time Studs made that type of pass attempt it was inaccurate and turned out to be a wasted down instead of an easy completion. Yes these are the best players on the field for UND but how to actually spread it around is difficult because we aren't going to have 45 run plays in a game in which all backs around 15 carries. My opinion is John shouldn't get as many backfield touches as the other two backs but should be used in the passing game a lot more as well as get most of the jet sweeps and so on. The offensive line needs to get a lot better and a lot more consistent with run blocking and the entire offense will look different and be dramatically improved. Inside zone can hit a lot of different holes based upon how the blocking works out and the OL was consistently getting pushed around by the opposing teams DL which gives it little chance to work.

    I only caught part of the game but when you turn the ball over 10 times against a bad team you have no shot to win. Do it against a good team and it's a bloodbath.

    The complaints started the day he was hired and before he ever actually did any coaching at UND. A lot of fans on this forum were pissed at the hire.

    fixed your post

    The last time Minot State was any good they consisted of a bunch of 25 year old Canadian of which more than a few were cycling steroids. That was back in the NAIA days, Minot is a really hard place to recruit but they were able get some guys back then that couldn't get through the NCAA clearinghouse. I think Mary is running into some of the same problems now, they were a pretty good NAIA team but have struggled with the move to D2 football.

    I certainly don't agree with everything you say in this post but I didn't understand pulling the redshirt on Studsrud for not reason. They also didn't give Mollberg the chance to come back and earn the job at QB which seemed foolish to me because Studs was still young and not really ready to go at the time. As for the rest of your post, not so sure I can get on board because Joe didn't consistently show much in his playing time at UND. Yes he had some good games but a lot of ugly was mixed in. He came to UND as this athlete at QB and I think perception was a QB that you could run and get out of trouble and make plays when needed. I never saw that and I think he bulked up to much and got slow or maybe he never was all that fast.
