    5 Players Poised For A Breakout 2018 Season

    I'd argue that Oliveira already did that last year. It would be interesting to know what the median runs for each would be. Not sure if there is anywhere that we can look it up, but I wouldn't doubt that Oliveira would have a better number there. Also curious if there is any way to look up number of attempts that ended in a loss of yards. RUSHING GP-GS Att Gain Loss Net Avg TD Long Avg/G John Santiago 11-11 119 759 42 717 6.0 5 81 65.2 Brady Oliveira 11-0 111 651 14 637 5.7 3 57 57.9 James Johannesson 11-0 41 255 7 248 6.0 4 56 22.5

    Can't recommend watchbigsky.com enough. It's the same broadcast as the pluto app, but is way smoother for some reason.

    5 Players Poised For A Breakout 2018 Season

    Ketteringham - Finally a QB with the skill set of an FCS QB McKinney - Finally a QB with arm strength that can get him the ball. Another year in the system, and hopefully more weight for Mckinney. If rudolph opens up the playbook that could help. Mason Bennett - Had my eye on him ever since he came in with Brady Oliviera from Winnipeg. I think he has some serious upside. Jake Rastas - Bigger Stronger James Johannesson I'd still say Santiago could have a breakout year. Despite receiving numerous accolades already in his career. I don't think he has played close to his potential. He has been limited by the playbook and Offensive Line. If there are improvements here, we could see much more consistent production out of him.

    There were also tons of people who wanted Rudolph fired after the 2016 season, when UND went 9-3 and made the playoffs. People don't want him gone simply because UND lost a lot of games last year. So he isn't a scapegoat. That 2016 team was 105 out of 122 teams in FCS in 3rd down conversion %. Looks to me like Rudolph got LUCKY to have a guy like Santiago that can break a huge run every once in a while, and in turn boost the yards/play stats. The offense has ZERO consistency.

    This. And I could see them developing quite the following in St. Paul. Think TCU. Could even play some football at the new soccer stadium down there.

    Who said that he would demand it? Two people CAN have a difficult conversation without becoming adversarial. However, Chaves can, and should, make it clear that if Bubba is unwilling to make needed changes (assuming the offense doesn't improve), he may not be the right man for the job. Should Chaves just sit on his hands if we have another season where we do not reach our potential offensively? I would think that both he and Bubba have higher standards than that. Coaching is a results driven career. Period.

    Exactly. Chaves is the boss, and he is used to watching competent offensive coordinators. And he cares about football.

    At least according to @SIOUXFAN97, he already did! On his linkedin page, it says he worked on NCAA recruiting for Euro Elite Basketball. Guessing he has quite a few connections over there. Best chance we will have at finding under the radar big-guy talent, imo.

    Social Engineering on Campuses

    You ever think that people from different cultures don't have the exact same focus on schooling? Natives have more pathways into universities like UND than almost anyone - they just decide not to take them. I can think of one particular O-lineman that fits the bill here.

    This is where it's nice having Chaves. After watching Beau Baldwin and his success at Eastern, Chaves will hopefully encourage Bubba to move on from Rudolph.

    So she worked 20% of a 40 hour week and complained about the schools expectations of timeliness in her work? Of course they asked her if she really wanted to be there.
