    2019 UND Recruiting

    So, you must think that our O coordinator had a dandy season calling plays last year. When we have even close to the success that Coach Klieman has had then you will have a valid point. Until then, not.

    2018 Season

    In my opinion, the very first time we pound Santiago up the middle for the famous 2nd and 9, 3rd and 7 sequence someone should immediately go up to the coaches box and tell Rudolph to take a permanent hike. I could not be more disappointed in Bubba for putting Sioux football second to his buddy system.

    2019 UND Recruiting

    To put it broadly, our needs are a breakthrough class so we can compete with other teams in ND and SD on and off the field. Time for Bubba to show us something.

    One yard and a cloud of dust.

    I love the idea of a heavy line - they were a force to be reckoned with in 2016. This is the type of "role players" we need, not the non-scoring grinders.

    Which returnees do we see taking a nice jump in scoring next year (hopefully several?) I think Mishmash and Kawaguchi for sure.

    A few years back Jones assembled what I feel was the most talented Sioux Basketball Team ever. He decided that the best offense was "streetball" and the go to play was to have his best player and ballhog to go 1 on 4, pivot 3 or 4 times and put up an off balance shot, get a foul, or lose the ball. The guy can't game coach for squat.

    Agreed, but after watching last year's team and the sophomore (now junior class) in particular I think it is even harder to win a nattie without any scorers.

    A huge difference in the number of shots and scoring chances. Hockey is up and down the ice even with a low scoring game. 40 total shots on goal in a 1-0 game is not unheard of along with exciting goalie play. A soccer team with a 1-nil lead can bog down what ever action there was for an entire game. It's like watching paint dry except not as exciting.

    I believe Cruikshank was on our radar for quite a while - maybe even a verbal - what happened?

    Not specifically directed at you, but at those in general who think there is too much emphasis on getting the high round draft picks.

    Nice sarcasm and I get your point. However us diehard fans can point to our recruiting advantages over many schools - a strong tradition of winning and National Championships, the best arena in college hockey, lead the nation in attendance and fans travel like no other team, a proven record of turning out NHL talent, and coaches with player development experience, and probably the program with the best tradition in the country. While every recruit is different, I like to think we have some recruiting advantages over many other schools. Maybe I am wrong but I don't think so. I do admit, however, that in my head I can't understand why anyone would want to go elsewhere so maybe I am overestimating our drawing power. I know that the coaches are the experts, but I still don't get what happened to our Junior class.

    Totally agree - I think what got many posters going is the idea that maybe the Junior class wasn't just bad luck but a change in recruiting philosophy. We have plenty of grinders right now. What we need are scorers. It really doesn't matter what round they go in, but guys who can handle the puck, pass accurately, and hit the net (especially when it's wide open). There is no reason we shouldn't be able to get plenty of these players.
