    I stopped reading after "First rule of fandom ..." Go UND
  2. Spring Ball 2018

    You mean this site actually attracts overly biased UND fans/alumni? Who would have thought such a novel concept possible? This site is anything but a credible democracy. In fact, the response to any form of criticism on this board is often exaggerated and illogical. It actually ruins the ability for fair two-sided discussion. I mean, this "issue" (or whatever you want to call it) now becoming the hot topic on this thread perfectly exemplifies both the current lull on UND football and the irrationality amongst many who call themselves UND fans. If you don't like what someone has to say, don't read it and/or certainly don't subscribe and comment.

    Bit sensitive today, huh? Hope you're not too closely associated with the football program; UND football needs a lot more fortitude than that in order to rebound back from 2017.

    It's going to be a prove it or lose it type of season for Bubba. Last season just plain sucked. Bubba and his program need to prove they can walk the walk and win some games. Unfortunatley, due to that, spring ball and fall camp will be minimally intriguing to many this year. I know I'm one of those who feel last year dug this program into a !@#$ hole. Top 10 preseason turned to league bottom feeder will do that to you. I also feel the support for football from an athletic administrative and financial level is iffy at best and that is discouraging. Bottomline: desperately need results (wins)

    Yeah, Confidence is quite rare amongst the ol' Grand Forks folks. Be humble, right? Wrong - time to expect a winner.

    Not much else screams cheap more than the head coach coaching a position group. Particularly when there is no other position coach in that role. The financial situation is less than ideal. Thin ice as far as I'm concerned.

    Bubba's program took a complete nosedive during 2017 and the folks around the program can sense it. We'll eventually see if 2017 was an exception or the new norm for "Bubba Ball"; I'm not holding my breath. Hoping for a turnaround, though, obviously.

    HPC phase II funding and the coaching deficits are two separate issues, but they are just that: issues. They need to both be addressed.
  10. 2018 UND Recruiting

    All great things to hear. Plenty of aims for current funding, both short-term and long-term: HPC Phase II (long-term), scholarships, coaches' salaries (short-term), uniforms and helmets (short-term)

    Exactly my thoughts as well. Why disregard the extra opportunity to excite fans in the Alerus Center? Trial run for new, exciting in-game production for the fall? Instead, entire opportunity is being overlooked. Poor marketing.

    Ain't this is the truth ... Damn

    No spring game: confirmed. Not a huge deal in the overall scheme of things. Most important factor is on-the-field success (aka wins). Until UND can beat NDSU, they will remain second fiddle in the region. Has nothing to do with #1 team in country status, but rather #1 team in region. Just so happens that #1 team in region is also #1 in country. Was hoping 2017 was going to be the year. Of course, under such high expectations, UND choked big time instead.

    The relatively unique (and utterly pathetic) lack of a true spring game in the Alerus Center will again occur, I'm sure.

    These things require money, which the UND football program currently does not have. Have to reappropriate within the department, patiently wait for some mystery endowment, or continue to have UND football scrape by with the bare minimum. Adidas apparel contract does allow UND a few options, although not to the level of top tier FCS programs.
