  1. 2018 UND Recruiting

    To me this is the make/break season for the OL coach. If he can't get more productivity from his line, he needs to go. You can claim injuries for last season but for the past two seasons the offensive line has underperformed and have failed to really open any kind of lanes for our all-conference/american running backs. Yes, teams are stacking the box because the OC lacks any kind of imagination, but with that said they were doing the same thing three years ago and that line was opening massive holes. Get Santiago to the second level and all of a sudden you get your explosive offensive plays.

    A troll is "a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response." Your posts fall under the extraneous as they really service zero purpose outside of your amusement. You are quoting old posts and knowing that it will notify those posters, and you are also probably intending them all to try to respond, again for the purposes of starting an argument for your amusement. Try and be as polite and civil as you want, you're still trolling.
  3. Gameday vs Utah

    Sorry but at this point Bison06 is trolling. Dredging up old posts in the hopes of eliciting responses that really do absolutely nothing to further any conversation other than to point at the bad year UND had.

    I'd be fine with unbiased officiating, call penalties that are penalties and call both teams the same. Last night was an obvious example of not doing that.

    What if I told you it's possible to have an aggressive, defensive-minded philosophy but still have a dynamic offense...

    There was certainly attrition in prior years but this last season saw O'Brien retire and Poole get kicked off the team. Hunt was injured towards the beginning of the year, Larson missed the season (smartly not to burn the redshirt), and Rodgers got hurt the second game of the year. Attrition hurt, but injuries and idiocy finished the ILB off. I agree the coaches failed to backfill last year and the year before for ILB. For the kind of defense UND runs, we need at least 8-9 ILBs on the roster. You play 4 or 5 rotating through, and you have the others filling in on special teams or redshirting.

    Yes, the offense had to win games but they were also assisted by the defense. For example, the tying points in the USD game were by the defense.
  8. 2017-18 Season

    Agreed with this. Brew has shown the ability to develop a team throughout a season. As for Freije, sometimes you just have an off game, it happens to everyone. She'll be fine.

    2017 exposed the offense for what it was. 2016 the offense was gifted short fields and didn't have to win every game (turnovers, total defense, etc.). 3 and outs aren't completely devastating when your defense can get the ball right back. 2017 the defense was so injury riddled and played so poorly that that became impossible. Rudolph never adjusted. He lacked imagination last year, he lacked imagination this year. Throw in his questionable calls to offset his good calls and he is what he is, a mediocre OC that sticks to a game plan to a fault.

    It frustrates me to no end to be watching other college football games and you see how other offenses utilize dynamic running backs. The comment about the UCF running back today was along the lines of, "well what position is he?" and the answer, "he's whatever we need him to be on that play, if he's in the backfield he's a running back, if he's out wide he's a wide receiver." Santiago is that dynamic and yet more often than not we pound him between the tackles on a good 70% of his plays.

    When people in the stands are calling out what the play is going to be on greater than 50% of the offensive plays, you know you don't have much imagination at the OC spot.
  12. The puck was very much visible in the net underneath the goalie's pad. I just can't believe these refs weren't able to see that given all the camera angles they were fed.
  13. How blind are these refs? The puck was obviously in the net.
  14. That has been Miami's MO over the past several years, good skaters, good speed and try to skate circles around the opposition.
