  1. October 2017 Announcement

    That occurred in spite of Faison, not because of him. So much untapped potential out there, you have no idea.
  2. October 2017 Announcement

    This will be a significant move that will do nothing but help UND football and basketball. Enjoy everyone. Kennedy is far more committed to the right things than Kelley ever was.
  3. 2017 Season

    I just don't agree. Yes, the number of injuries is concerning and, rightfully so, will affect results; however, UND is completely dysfunctional right now. They are getting blown out. This is not purely on injuries because the backup players are incapable as well. In a year or two, some of these players may improve and even be all-Conference types, but the scheme and plan that is being put in place currently doesn't help the current situation. Why no depth at QB? Why no depth at corner? Why is the defensive line - arguably the strength of the team during the preseason - not anchoring the defense? The defense has been horrible with the DL intact. There are many issues going on; the bottomline is UND is 2-5 during a season they were picked to be BSC champions.
  4. UND Football Strength & Conditioning

    Spot on. There is a discrepancy. In defense of the S&C staff, a lot of the players recruited by Bubba come out of high school way behind the eight ball, so to speak. Bubba and his staff may have to just start by recruiting more physical players.

    The depth on this team is horrid. I've been steadfast with this and nothing from yesterday will change my mind. Yes, the injuries have been horrible, but I can't understand how people just don't see what's going on here. You shouldn't go from Big Sky favorite to bottom-feeder when the starters get hurt. You need to have competent back-ups and UND has essentially walk-ons at all the 2nd string spots. They are very underwhelming in terms of their ability. I would understand if the players were making mistakes due to inexperience and causing UND to lose games by a touchdown or two, but these back-ups that Bubba recruited are fish out of water. Dare I say it, many don't appear to have any business playing DI football. The QB position and offensive line appear to be the biggest failures on offense while the defensive backfield (Bubba's positon group, nevertheless) and linebacker spots (Schmidt's forte) are apparently paper thin for the defense. This is all disappointing; to the point where recruiting needs to be put under the microscope for Bubba. No reason you shouldn't have players that can at least keep you competitive; UND is like a DII program playing in the BSC with the injuries and that shouldn't happen.
  6. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Montana did the exact same thing two years ago to Bubba and company. No changes against the scheme at all.

    Rudolph is both the OC and QB coach. His assessment and recommendation on depth chart and who plays is not particularly challenged by Bubba, but rather just agreed with.
  9. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Rudolph's bias towards Heidlebaugh is, well, detrimental to the team to say the least. Of course, a lot about Rudolph is detrimental.
  10. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Well, of course, if that was actually the situation. Ironically, what you just did there is speculate rather than assess the current state of reality. Reality is that UND is losing to teams they were predicted to beat; and not just losing, but getting embarrassed.
  11. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Because the "best players play" slogan we hear the coaches spew in public is just talk.
  12. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Getting blown out multiple times by fellow Big Sky Conference teams destroys the culture. See 2013. This season will have a negative trickle-down effect.
  13. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Well, between people on here trying to revoke my professional degree and give me behavioral health advice, I'd say this performance from UND football tops everything off fittingly. UND football has major issues going on right now and it goes beyond the injuries. The culture went from good to broken in less than 12 months.
  14. Gameday vs Da Griz

    Heidlebaugh is not good ... at all. Bubba has had 3+ years to find a backup QB and this is what UNDs got? Not good at all.

    I hope your therapy sessions don't cost too much.
