  1. 2017 Season

    http://kfgo.com/blogs/und-football-360/30670/four-games-left-what-i-want-to-see-happen/ Agree with everything Kelly said, but I have a couple of other things. Does everyone think it's more important for Mortel to get every snap at LT or rotate him with Bennett? Same goes with Russo, for all I know that's what they are planning on doing.
  2. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    Anybody know where you can watch the entire Minnesota press conference? They just post a short minute and change video. It was the same thing last year, they have to have the worst pre-game video selection in the country.
  3. October 2017 Announcement

    Schlossman is a lost cause, it begins and ends with Women's hockey. He'll take any shot he can at Kennedy for as long as he's at the Herald. What happened right away when Kennedy was named President that Miller and the Herald staff flipped a lid over? I remember Kennedy was on a tour of ND and said he'd answer questions when he got back or something like that. Don't remember the exact circumstance, but Kennedy and the Herald didn't get off on the right foot. Schlossman is pretty much unbearable when it comes to anything non - Men's college hockey.
  4. 2017 Season

    Same and I'm sure it was, probably an overreaction on my part until we see what happens on Saturday. I mean I don't expect him to rip Heidelbaugh, he did the best he could, but him going with Heidelbaugh in the first place the Montana game is a decision that won't easily be forgotten.
  5. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but he was thought to be the best incoming freshman d-man. High offensive upside and solid defensively (compared to Troy Stecher).
  6. 2017 Season

    Don't read this article then. http://www.inforum.com/sports/4344415-und-quarterback-picture-remains-unclear Some quotes: "We're going to see how (Studsrud) comes along this week," Schweigert said. "We took a look at Brad and Andrew's performances and evaluated that. We'll give them both reps this week and make a decision later in the week." "We thought both got better as the game went on," Schweigert said. "They both have a different skill set. Bubba is losing me, if Studs can't go him even considering starting Heidelbaugh is one of the craziest things I've ever heard. Did he not watch the first half last week??
  7. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    I don't know why they'd share with UND, since they own the rights, but I absolutely would share their broadcast with FSN and charge a decent amount.
  8. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    There has never been a safer bet that at the end of the year, Minnesota will have a better PP % than UND. Also think this is the first time I've ever read UND's power play and clicking in the same sentence.
  9. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    Watched the Gophers game today, thought they looked good, especially being down three of their best forwards. Going to be a tough test for UND, going to stick with my split prediction.
  10. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    Minnesota's injuries to Sheehy (especially) and Reedy are ones to watch. It was nice to see some goals finally yesterday, but given they were so hard to come by the first three games, I'll go with a split. The big X factor is special teams and will be all year, against solid teams, they have to be at least even with their opponents. I bet one of the nights UND loses, their PP with go 0-fer and Minnesota will get a couple.
  11. 2017 Season

    Clearly depth in certain positions have caused the mess UND Football is in. I'd argue though that it's simply that, certain position groups that opponents have exploited as much as they can. It's been a worse case scenario at ILB, Cam playing now has helped, the last two games. Before he was back, they had no one. CB is the other, but are you saying Blubaugh isn't a D1 talent? He's a true freshman that has been thrown into the fire. Offensively, outside of Heidelbaugh, who this board has talked about that decision, which back up has looked completely lost? I'm probably too much on the positive side, given the results, but I don't think they are as far off to being competitive as the results have shown. It's other teams exposing the weaknesses (MSU / USD) attacking ILB. Montana exposing the CB situation (combined with the coaching staff playing Heidelbaugh). This will be a vastly improved defense next year and I think we'll see improvements the rest of the year (given no other ILB or CB injuries).
  12. Gameday vs Da Griz

    I know on message boards especially you'll always see overreaction in the heat of the moment. The backup QB situation though is not one and it's something I sincerely hope the local media pushes for answers for. As everyone has said, this wasn't a situation where the "#3" was slightly better, the difference couldn't have been bigger. It was clear after two series that Heidelbaugh can't run an FCS offense. Instead of going to Zimmerman, they continued with Heidelbaugh for what was the most embarrassing first half of offensive football possible. I also think this has to have an affect on the locker room, with how frustrated we all are, I couldn't imagine being on the team and watching that. I'm genuinely embarrassed for Bubba, there's no amount of spin zone he can do to try to explain it. On a positive note, even with the injury situation, outside of EWU, I think UND can be competitive the rest of the year with either Studsrud or Zimmerman. Given the injury situation in general, start Zimmerman against Montana and it's a 14 point game at the worst. That gives me a lot of hope (obviously next year will be better), but that this one year will just be a blip and they'll be back competing at the top of the league.
  13. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    Clarkson is a good team no doubt, but always hope for at a minimum splits non-conference for NCHC teams.
  14. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    I know UND is only 4 games into the season and their competition will get much tougher, but at the beginning of the year, my keys defensively were. Wolanin becomes an elite defenseman, an All Conference type player Shaw / Poolman improve slightly Either Peski / Johnson take the next step and become a solid Top 4 pair guy One freshman step up and become a guy that can be counted on night in and night out, with another of the remaining two being a solid 7th guy It's rare to check all of the boxes, but UND might surpass what I had hoped at the beginning of the year. Wolanin is a stud Poolman hasn't missed a beat Peski / Johnson have both improved dramatically, Peski is a legit Top 4 guy and Johnson could be as well Kierstad has impressed me and we haven't even gotten to see Bast yet This is going to be a very good unit this year.

    Solid night, nice to see the puck finally find the back of the net. Happy with the 3-0-1 start, but Minnesota will be much, much stronger test than UAA & SLU. Love the depth they have on defense this year, Rieger will be the 8th dman this year, but liked that the coaching staff got him in. They no longer have an 8th only for emergency situations and once Bast comes back he'll need playing time as well. Kierstad has had a nice start to his career. I'm impressed that the coaches sat Simo on Friday / Olson on Saturday, put what they think is the best lineup out there, regardless of class.
