  1. 2017 Season

    One hell of a goal line/short yardage offense coming up ...Norberg and Johannesson lead blocking for Oliveria with a possible jet sweep action to Santiago? Damn UND's offense has potential. Not to mention Keaton is a senior and has best receiver corps yet. Rudolph needs to be thorough and smart and get the job done this year with logical playcalling.
  2. Greetings from Salt Lake

    UND needs to be competitive and attempt to win this game. It would be a program-changing win. With those kind of stakes, you need to go all out. See NDSU vs Kansas State in 2013.
  3. Fall Camp Updates 2017

    There were plenty of wide-open throws that Studsrud missed last season. I think the 70% mark is unrealistic, but Studsrud definitely can improve a few percentage points in 2017. A lot is on him. The receivers and offensive line will be more experienced and better in 2017. It's time for Studsrud to step up or UND will maintain the status quo or, even worse, have a disappointing 2017.

    Ha, no to the damn reverses at this point. Yes to downhill tough UND football, which is what Oliveira and Johannesson in the backfield will provide. Santiago keeps the defense honest horizontally so him in the slot gets UND's talented big backs on the field more which is where they belong.
  5. 2018 UND Recruiting

    So UND is going to miss on all these recruits they've evaluated in-person? Get a grip man. Must be extra pungent in Northside Fargo this morning.
  6. Adidas deal in the works?

    In terms of hockey dictating the choice, why not Nike or Under Armour then? The favorite has been Adidas but a surprise with Nike or UA would be welcome.
  7. Top FR 2017

    I agree with this and I'm quite certain Rudolph is going to try this some non-conference to see how it goes.
  8. 2017 Season

    I completely understand that and appreciate that. My point is an obvious one: UND *must* have early afternoon games during the second half of their schedule due to hockey. That makes things difficult for folks who don't want to attend two games and thus opt for hockey and/or can't get to Grand Forks by noon/1 pm for football. Hockey will always be penciled in for late evening start times. UND football has to work around that. Not a big deal but a fact of reality that may affect attendance a bit on "double-header Saturdays".
  9. 2017 Season

    I think games around 2:30 pm or later are the norm for "primetime games". Additionally, those games would possibly be better attended in Grand Forks considering large groups of attendees struggle getting to the Alerus by noon for some reason. Blame it on the drinking "have a good time" crowd
  10. 2017 Season

    All around the country, college football plays primetime at late afternoon or evening. UND hockey interferes with UND football playing late afternoon/evening games; therefore, UND may actually need to do something unique such as attendance vouchers. UND hockey naturally soaks up the crowd due to the REA and their game times which isn't fair to Bubba and the UND football program.
  11. 2017 Season

    It all comes down to UND's season at that point. If UND underperforms in prior games, the EWU game will have an inappropriately poor crowd due to deer season opener.
  12. 2017 Home Schedule

    Of course. Needs to be done.
  13. 2017 Season

    !@#$ All the games got tougher now. !@#$ Redshirt left yet for Harris fortunately. Next man up; team needs to rally around Deion and still strive for Frisco. Crazier things have happened. Go Hawks
  14. 2017 Season

    Frisco or bust. NOTHING wrong with confidence and high expectations. That should be/now is the standard for UND football. Bubba, his staff, and the student-athletes have done a tremendous job over the past three plus years. Make 2017 a special, special year. Work hard and get it done. The respect for UND football observed today from the Big Sky Conference was earned the right way, as we all remember the Conference thinking the exact opposite of UND only a year or two ago. UND now needs to earn national respect, and Bubba and his program need to go about that the same way. I have confidence that UND football under Bubba will reach the pinnacle sooner rather than later. Go UND Fighting Hawks
  15. 2017 Weekly/Monthly/Yearly Nominations and Awards

    Winning brings forth accolades. UND is the reigning Big Sky Conference champion and that is worth something. On to bigger and better things this season. Go Fighting Hawks!
