  1. 2018 Roster

    The TE position is mismanaged related to production and team. We traveled five TEs last year for around 20 receptions and 250 yards. (Cloyd and Pinke combined for 11 receptions and 201 yards, Fielder didn't add much, just guessed because they never update the player profiles) I would think in 'our' style of offense the TE position would contribute at least 50 catches on the year. Going into 2018 we have 7 eligible TE's and are adding 1 or 2 more that will redshirt? So, we're deep at D Line and Tight End, that is abundantly clear. I expect a TE will move to FB or HB. I am tired of hearing that youth is a reason for low performance numbers. Cloyd has all the talent but hasn't produced because he's young and just getting his feet wet for 2 years.........got it. He's a Junior now this season, albeit a young Junior, so don't expect much....... If we feel our players are talented, I encourage the staff to put them in positions to be successful, free of 12 pre-snap checks and reads, anytime they touch the filed. (even as freshman) This whole complexity issue and stacked positions with relatively low production is striking a nerve with me. I think the D line has really good players, just going to be a limited return with a 3-man front. (UND, home of the freshest D-line in the nation, paper thin at LB) I like our TEs, but no real super stars as far as we use them, so low in receiving production that I will bet money other teams don't even prepare for them. You can only play 1 or 2 TEs at a time, glad we are stacked there. Let's try stacking the O-line and Linebackers with talent then we should be able to at least run the ball and stop the run. 5 o-lineman on the field at a time and even more in a heavy set (play one at TE) and 4 LBs on the field most times. Really basic math that 9-10 positions on the field is more critical than 4-5.

    That was way too easy.....thanks for the laugh!!
  3. Future Schedules

    Another item in which SU kicks our a$$ in. They magically get teams heading into their crappiest year in school history, more times than not, and we schedule a peaking Washington. Even Utah turned into a horrible match up the year we schedule them. In previous years they were run heavy, very vanilla, then in 1 year they grab Eastern' s OC, start a Florida high school player of the year at QB, and add Oregon's best wide out. All sucks!!
  4. Future Schedules

    I hope the juice is worth the squeeze. We have some time to get better but we will see next year at Washington what a 60-10 trouncing feels like. I am not sold that this is best for UND Football. It's best for the budget, no doubt.

    The equipment guys will be challenged.......look at that Noggin!! This guy is my favorite recruit, 2018. Rain Slater - Winnipeg, MB
  6. 2018 UND Recruiting

    He was good. Only lineman that could push a defender consistently that year(what I was told). He played for Luke at a DII school, tore his peck and sat out that year, then became a DII grad transfer.
  7. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Our JUCO OL track record sucks. It's been Boas and 2 busts that I remember.
  8. Non-UND FCS Thread

    I wish I had my oversees betting account this open. 20 points was a pretty easy cover. Here is why - Wofford beat Furman by 1 point, Mercer by 1 point, Garrdner-Webb by 3 points, Citadal by 4 points, and Won 2 overtime games (Western Carolina and Chattanooga). They also had a win against Virginia Military Institute, who sucks. Lost to Samford and the Gamecocks took it easy on them. Wofford was 6-7 key plays from a .500 season. Their playoff win was against conference foe Furman, same crappy conference.
  9. 2018 Season

    More so this year, 3 easy playoff games, than in previous years for SU. After the Dukes, Jacks, Bison.......we should be able to compete. To get to the top tier.....well, we better stick to day by day and be a perennial top 24, 1st.
  10. 2018 Season

    After SU finishes off most of the tough teams in the MV, regular season, they wipe their brow knowing they have 3 pretty easy playoff games before Frisco. I heard the Fargo Dome and tailgating was down, their fans are getting sick of the blow-outs. I had 6 different invites but knew there was no chance they lose to an average team from a crappy conference.
  11. 2018 Season

    This is where I am at, playoffs most years, like 4 of 5 years going forward or bust. After the top 2-3 teams in the Nation we should be able to compete and be in the top 24.
  12. Non-UND FCS Thread

    Get a life- You add absolutely nothing every post you make.
  13. Non-UND FCS Thread

    I think they can drop auto bids and/or place more emphasis on conference strength. Wofford sucked and their conference has sucked since Appt St. and Ga. Southern left. That was the 7th ranked team? What a joke. Youngstown St., not in the play-offs, obviously would have been a better game in a rematch compared to that horsecrap Wofford team. If the MVFC has 7-8 teams in the play-offs, then so be it, maybe they should.
  14. 2018 Roster

    I hope we quit wasting eligibility on young players, like Izzy. There is no good reason true freshman can't have a big year. Offensive complexity is not a good reason. Was it odd Stetson Carr had a career day on the last day of his career? Where was the back shoulder to Mercer in 2017, worked the year before? WR production was disappointing in 2017.

    Best of Luck in the Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl Mr. Perce, if Bowling Green ever makes it that far. (need more than 2 wins) That will be epic!! Yes we were horseshit this year, but more identifiable and fixable than BG.

    What took them so long??
  18. Moo U diaries

    Don't you have a calf to mount this morning, King of All D-Bags?? Or all you need is your mirror and Sioux Forum to get off........my bad.
  19. Moo U diaries

    I knew it, but checked my sources anyway. Smoke a little smoke, so does SU drug test on it's own or was this playoff related? And, if you play, you get 1 game, but if you are a scrub, you're done. I will dig deeper to get these answers.
  20. Future Schedules

    So 4 real home games.
  21. Future Schedules

    30-0 in the 1st quarter. 100-0 could have been the score. I don't doubt we justified this game cause SU did it, but that doesn't make it right. Joke game for us, even bigger joke for SU. Sources say 3-4,000 SU fans left at end of the game. My, oh my!!
  22. Future Schedules

    So sad to see the season open with Miss Valley State, total joke of a game. And we paid over $200,000 for it, embarrassing. Throw in Idaho St. and Portland St., UND should almost be paying us to attend. Season tickets hinge on 2 games, Montana and Weber St, that's for sure. Miss Valley State Football was 2-9 this year with Wins against The University of Virginia (Lynchburg) and Arkansas-Pine Bluff. At 2-9, the Delta Devils decided to not renew the head coach. So much drama heading into this game, I can barely contain my excitement.
  23. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    All scrubs. They are not perfect angels down south but they do a good job of keeping things inside the program, that's for sure.
  24. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    You sound like a Bama fan. They might not get in the top 4, move on. Our situation isn't even comparable. If anything, UND is more like Auburn in that we have to beat the in state giant to get any respect. And we most likely will have to do it with more unheralded players.
  25. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    And Auburn never hurts themselves in the innovation department, also a factor.
