  1. Spring Ball 2018

    Not having Gordon as RB is just stupid. Put me in that boat.
  2. Spring Ball 2018

    We don't want to advertise the new wrinkles and the __________ series they are putting in. Just guessing -
  3. Non-UND FCS Thread

    "Stiegelmeier said he hadn't eaten all day, was at home doing taxes and had some wine before he went out without thinking about how much he had to drink." He'd better budget about $10,000 more in personal expenses next year!!!
  4. Spring Ball 2018

    Really good listen! Refreshing to hear good football minds with Craig and Kelly. Diamond back field, would love that. Kelly had me rolling with the Stonebrook flashback when what seemed like 2- 1st downs and 80 total yards, and won on the Tillman pick 6.
  5. 2018 UND Recruiting

    It doesn't help with an AD still in Washington, and a president interviewing in Florida. That's not comforting to donors right now.
  6. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Right, if all the coaches got together and wasted countless weeks on video, testing, interviewing kids, maybe a list of top 250 would mean a little, but nothing more than that. It's amazing after a 9 win season 2 years ago we were the darling of all these lists and polls, and now after a 3 win season we are no where to be found unless a kid had a previous power 5 offer. I doubt the last 2 years of recruits are all that different, yet the hype is because of what really matters, W's vrs L's. We still need to improve depth and talent on our roster, no arguments there.
  7. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Here is what I make of It- Tomorrow, I am going to not review the list and instead grab a cone from Dairy Queen. It will be way more satisfying and I will still know the same (probably more) as those that looked at the list.
  8. 2018 schedule /team

    Sucking in our own conference. We just did that last year!!
  9. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Overall, a lot of good points. Yes, being 3-8 leaves a lot of positions open!! I have 2 critiques: 1) I would keep Gordon at RB. We are an injury away from needing #4 if you place the RB order of 1)John 2)Brady 3)JJ 4)Gordon. If we used our best players in space and created positive match-ups we'd have more touches for RBs. 2) Interesting view that the UNDFB360 guys would mention Garett Maag down the road as this flex receiver/TE creating a lot of stress on the defense. This would probably be a true statement if Maag went to SDSU. I agree with the 360 boys that inside backer, the bigger players themselves, will be a huge positive this year. The secondary is a total wild card for this team.
  10. 2018 schedule /team

    We had one of those in the 90's.
  11. 2018 schedule /team

    Unless, behind the scenes, we find a screen game and get our best players on the field at the same time. We should see more deep balls this year, too. (not overly confident on these things) On defense, either stop the run or have a respectable pass defense. Another year of neither is not acceptable.
  12. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Who's going to be our scout QB? Don't we need a walk-on for that? Let's not repeat the past of pulling our scout QB off the practice squad and start him the following week.
  13. 2018 Season

    Take any opposing offense last season. Here is the scouting report on UND. D-line - pretty good, Linebackers - not good inside and undersized outside, Secondary - not good. Pretty much any offense in the league could take their 5 o-lineman and even add a tight end and in theory double team each of our 3 D-lineman. The result was opposing RBs were at the LBs with a 2 yard gain, and then drag them for another 5 yards, for a 7 yard gain. I think our D-line is more talented than what they looked but suffered because 1) 3 man front is our scheme so our strongest position has the least amount of players on the field and 2) rest of D wasn't a concern for opposing offenses.
  14. 2018 Season

    That's my take, yes.
  15. 2018 Season

    If we stop the run, teams will torch us in the air. All I see right now in the secondary is injuries and inexperience at safety. I predict a 5.
  16. New AD posting and hiring process

    1.) Championships 2.) Foundation for Championship caliber coaches and teams (facilities and $$) 3.) Athletics/UND/Community synonymous with each other 4.) Athletic Alumni Base, Needs to be HUGE!! (we can do better)($$) 5.) Can't think of anything else...........
  17. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Here is the obituary from UND Football standpoint: 1 day from departure to GF.........wtf!! Schobert was not rated or ranked by any of the major college ranking systems.[3] He didn't receive any NCAA Division I scholarship offers.[2] He wanted to play for the Wisconsin Badgers but was originally told he could tryout after the 2012 season started. Due to the lack of interest shown by Wisconsin, the only Division I football program in the state, he planned to attend Division I FCS University of North Dakota and join the Fighting Hawks as a walk-on. In July 2012, Schobert's outstanding performance in the WFCA Large School All-Star Game in which he played running back, safety and kick returner, tallying 145 all-purpose yards, two tackles, two pass-breakups and an interception caught the attention of Kenosha Bradford football coach Jed Kennedy. When he learned that Schobert's only opportunity to play Division I college football was as a walk-on at North Dakota, he contacted people he knew in the University of Wisconsin athletic department. The day before Schobert was to depart for Grand Forks, North Dakota, Badgers head coach Bret Bielema offered him a preferred walk-on spot.[2] In Schobert's own words: "They had a great coaching staff up there. I liked them. I thought I would have fit in, but Madison offered at the last second. It was a dream come true for a Wisconsin kid, so I had to jump on it. The rest has been history."[4]
  18. New AD posting and hiring process

    I was trying to be nice. (Shocking, I know!!)
  19. New AD posting and hiring process

    Let the dating process begin!! For some, not Faison will be enough. Others, maybe even a majority, probably need Mike elevated. A few will sit out or not give as much without Mike in the lead. These are the realities.
  20. New AD posting and hiring process

    I hope everyone that is already madly in love with Chaves are the 1st to get their checkbooks out. And, since he is the guy, I hope he does crush it for UND. Our AD performance history is...... debatable.
  21. New AD posting and hiring process

    Do you write a check to Stepps, Rudy, Fruend, or do you have Bubba in mind when donating to football? Just curious. EWU budget issues of course not all on Chaves, but 10 years and no responsibility, ya OK?
  22. New AD posting and hiring process

    Interesting take-
  23. New AD posting and hiring process

    Also in the article, EWU peer programs are spending $10 and $14 million on athletic facilities and even lower division schools are making upgrades while EWU plans to penny pinch to a balanced budget. And what is the big push at UND....phase II. This is very disturbing. If your finances are not in order, everything else becomes moot. So Chaves will have to rely heavily on others to keep $$ in order, that is what I am seeing.
  24. New AD posting and hiring process

    So we hired a guy that over saw a near $6 million deficit in the EWU athletic department.........and his biggest 2 achievements $wise is less than $3 million combined. Ohh boy- I hope he leaves this part of his vast experience back in Cheney.
  25. New AD posting and hiring process

    Prepare for some culture shock, and not referring to the weather. (Offensive football will shock him more than the weather)
