  1. 2018 Season

    more vids of workouts. We need to be a hell of a lot stronger and more physical. Better be grinding everyday.
  2. 2018 schedule /team

    Good post. I think it comes down to OL and ILB. If those two positions are substantially better, 4-7 is too low, I would say 7-9 wins and a tournament berth. If one of those groups is better 5-6 wins. If neither of those groups is better than there are several new posts about the new HC and his staff on this forum a year from now.

    I think the dL was affected by the problems at ILB and safety. Could not dial up as much pressure with the inexpenerience/size/athletic ability we had at times at ILb and safety. Pressure creates optimal situations for dl to make big plays too.

    If you can't stop the run, it has a huge cumulative effect on the whole defense. The problems at ILB also affected the passing game, we couldn't get home on blitzes. DB's can look great if the QB is constantly running for his life and getting tagged.

    Depth and experience will be plus for us this year in places other than the DL. I am saying 7 with potential for a 9 if Harris is 100% and the ILB can stop the run.
  6. 2018 Season

    Should be pretty solid two-deep at lb with a bunch more size and athleticism in the middle. Should change the flow of the game a bunch if we can stop the run again and get to the qb consistently when blitzing. Anyone know if Rodgers is 100% recovered? From the article it sounds as though Larson is recovered.

    If Connor Kruse is fully recovered from injury, he will be a significant contributor to the Hawk offense. Kid is a monster physically.
  9. 2018 Season

    Oh BS. You have 12-14 starters out and NDSU has a much different 2017. We’ll see how often you show your face here after you are looking up at UND again....and you know it’s coming....it always does.
  10. 2018 Season

    With Bubba ball the two most important groups are the OL and ILB. If we are significantly better at those positions in 2018 we should have a good season. If those positions are not better it will be another 4-7 or 3-8.
  11. 2018 UND Recruiting

    I would think all three rfr will be 300 by next season. Kruse already is.

    IMO this was largely due to some poor recruiting, attrition and injuries at the Ilb position. Lost O'Brien, Poole, Rodgers and Larson and then even Disterhaupt for a few games and did not get Hunt back til half the season was over. Those 5 would have made a world of difference in that category. Hard to beat anyone when you cant stop the run right at you. The rest of the ILB's on roster were not ready or will never be ready.

    Lots of stuff for Bubba and Co to improve upon, but to me if they get the culture fixed back to 7-9 wins again in 2018, if they don't we are in the midst of a coaching search a year from now. i think if O'brien and Rodgers don't go down to injury we win another 2-3 games in spite of the culture problems in 2017.

    And UND will never beat NDSU again....blah,blah,blah. Wasn’t that what you were saying about 1990 too? Rocky was flying high and then boom, NDSU was looking up at UND for the next 15 years. Won’t be that many years I’ll be over in Bisonville trolling you. Enjoy it while you can.
