  1. UND (2-2) vs Northland College (1-2) 11/21 7 pm

    Radio broadcast said that both suffered injuries in Hawaii. Also, said that Franken was mostly held out of shoot around, but did dress and is probably the closer of the 2 to get back sooner.
  2. Well, I’m assuming they wrote the covering of prostitutes fees into the contract. At least i hope they did. That seems like an obvious inclusion...although not sure what the options are for quality in our area. Even better Adidas even covers ones that are in from out of town. Also, this is a very big plus and may come in handy as well. If for some reason you have a problem with a lady official refereeing your game you tell Adidas...Tell them to remind her to “stay in her lane” and from what I’ve read...Adidas will have her promptly removed from the game.
  3. Those Notre Dame uni’s are a perfect example of the utter non sense that being an Adidas School a Times has been. I haven’t been sold on out WBB uni’s this year. However, the shoes that Sica posted is a classic look that forever works. I’m hoping for classic looks, that are time tested. Since they aren’t writing a check to UND, i remain somewhat unconvinced that this was all entirely necessary but knowing our budget... Every little bit of savings helps so I’m willing to see how it goes. Please coaching staffs look at some of the hideous Louisville, Wisconsin, Notre Dame etc...uniforms offerings from years past and at the very least try not let happen to your program.
  4. 2018 Season for attendance

    It is a great article. I try go. and my family goes, and we all love it when we do. But we all go for free. Because of Champions Club. I think there at least should have been attendance v. paid attendance discussion. Because that's really the next step needed. Paid Attendance. Yeah, that's great if you are getting great attendance but if no one is buying hardly any tickets, are you really helping the bottom line of the sports cost. Trust me I like Volleyball, and I think it's great that we are continuing to do well, but I think it's important to put attendance into perspective with that sport right now. Paid attendance is > than attendance, in the end. With our athletic budget having been at the forefront of discussion for approximately the last 18 plus months, it's easy to gloss over the details and focus on the niceness of the story, but as those last several months have shown us, we had best be concerned about bottom line numbers. Now with that little qualifier out of the way. I will be following and cheering for our success today.
  5. 2017-2018 Recruiting

    He would have to 1st be on schedule to earn a degree by May. I certianly don’t know if he is or not. But if he isn’t as many student athletes in today’s college world do it in 5, then there isn’t anything to really worry about, cause he can’t get a graduate trasfer, without a under grad degree. I’m not sure if any of us know the answer to that question definitively. And he did redshirt, so he can’t transfer and burn a redshirt year...its already been used.
  6. 2017-18 Season

    I would agree. IMHO, our uniforms are dreadful.
  7. 2017 Season

    Here’s a hypothetical question. What will Bubba have to do next year not to be on a hot seat and/or for it to be considered a step forward? Win 10 games? Win 7? Win 1 more than this year? Reach the playoffs? Win multiple playoff games? Less player issues outside football? Curious to hear what people would put in their checklist of what a satisfying progression would entail. This year has been tough to swallow. I’m hoping that this was a one off, but there are a couple of things that have to happen and have been mentioned frequently here. 1. O-Line play has to be better. UND has talented runners yes, but the holes haven’t been there enough and that truth actually goes back to last year. I’m not going to get into if it’s coaching or personnel. Bottom line, if they envision being a certain type of team...that area, must improve. 2. I feel that the way the current shotgun quick release spread offenses are with most of today’s college football world is a direct response of the years of the way we and other teams with similar philosophies approached the game, with pressure, pressure, pressure. Right now we aren’t getting there (to the QB) enough. Maybe, some of the time it’s talent, but I think some of the time it’s todays current scheme of offenses to defeat our philosophy- which is start the QB further back from the line of scrimmage and get it out quick. The Biggest help I see in order to continue to be who North Dakota wants to be is have the type of corners that can press the line of scrimmage and stay with their player longer. That way those DLine types and Backers can get there more frequently. These are just a couple of things that stand out to me,

    Stream Iheart Radio App. Choose 96.1 The Fox.
  9. Offense Against Cal Davis

    Kind of like we did at USD on the 1st play. That really fooled them
  10. Adidas deal in the works?

    Of course Adidas has to throw more money for a foothold, kids love the swoosh. Mine do too. For some reason, that's just what I've always observed.
  11. 2017-18 Season

    They(Coaching Staff) have been trying to get them here to The Betty the last couple of years. Especially last year. It would have been nice to have them come to GF last year and then played down in Brookings this year (home&home). They could have saved the 70K, and our fans would have had at least another quality opponent to see on our court. However thats not how it worked out. You're right it doesn't matter after this year as next year both will be in The Summit. But they are probably arrogant enough to try and attempt to buy a conference game out-(joking) they must really not want to paly here
  12. 2017-18 Season

    SDSU is paying UND to come in. Not sure about NDSU. Maybe they pay Stetson & Florida A&M. I'm just a little envious that SDSU is in a position where they don't even have to consider a home & home non conference arrangement with UND. They are so flush down there that they just say here's 70K or whatever it is, and say take it or leave it. It would be nice if the shoe was on UND's foot. Or at least equal footing. However made up this feeling is by me...but I can't help but be irritated when a school who is in our corridor is essentially saying to us, "we are so much better than you, or at least so much better off than you, that we don't even have to consider coming to your place to play- we'll just get our our pocket book and you'll come runnin." I'm probably alone in that it irritates me, and I sit there and think, how did it ever come to this. I understand going to get money games from the Nebraska's, Creighton's and Gonzagaz'a...but at least to me when it's SDSU...it seems sort of demeaning. But I come from an era of fan where the D2 rivalry with the rabbits was super, so naturally it's going to bother me more.
  13. 2017-18 Season

    4 with South Dakota State. My understanding from asking, is that all money games are anywhere from 70K to 105K. The person I know didn't know exact amounts., but did know that they fell into that range. I realize that UND Athletics is hurting for revenue, but 4 money games seems a bit much of an ask for a program who just went to the dance. Maybe they should shell out some $'s like SDSU, and bring some quality opponents in because that is what it will take to get some fairly decent home games. This much can be said....Football and Men's Basketball are more than doing their part to prop up the department budget. Granted they are they only 2 that can essentially go get games like that...but just saying.
  14. 2017 schedule

    Most early season tournaments for Volleyball and Basketball(s) are money losers for the schools that host. Because the host school is usually on the hook for lodging for visiting teams, sometimes meals and sometimes flights, depending on the arrangements and agreements. Plus as the host, you not only have to staff the matches or games you play, but also the ones you don't. From stats, officials, concessions, etc it can add up. Usually a local business or several is sought to partner/sponsor to help offset but usually from what I've been told when you put together these early season tournaments, it's more about how much $ is an acceptable loss on the budget line, not how much money the school will make.
  15. Da Bears

    I believe Color Analyst Mike Berg has said on the radio broadcast that Keaton usually goes to the LOS with 2 plays. He also has auto checks of about 5 plays depending if he see's something specific. Coach Berg, has been talking about this on radio broadcasts going back to Keaton's sophomore year at least. I don't think he goes up there with 1 play and 1 play only. That's why I bring my radio. That guy has some serious insight.
