  1. 2018 Roster

    Thank you.
  2. Official UND Football Regime Change Thread

    Makes no difference - the only legit comparison is if other Big Sky football champs get them.
  3. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Completely over the top.

    I'm not arguing that that there isn't some level of a cultural issue on the team. Please refer to my original post.
  5. The fact is that there has been at least 3 different raids on UND football players place of residence.  2 of the raids resulted in 3 players being charged with intent to deliver.  I know that these raids were carried out by the drug task force after investigations and surveilance which is still going on.   I know that Bubba has been told that more guys are involved and that guys on his team control a big chunk of the drug trafficing in Grand Forks.  There are many more guys involved, just not caught yet.  Up to 60% of the team would not pass a drug test.


    We understand your opinion on this subject. You have posted it 43,572 times (give or take). There is room for an opinion that is different or more nuanced than yours, too. I have been told things that in some ways differ from your info. I have no idea which fact is correct (or if it's a combination of the two) but your account of the situation is being accepted as fact by many posters here. I hope everyone is open to the possibility that what Midwestern Hawk posts on this subject may - or may not - be 100% true.
  7. Gameday: Hawks vs Da Eags

    I️ upvoted it because there is more to the story. Unless more info comes out that refutes what I️ heard these men got the shaft. (Reserving the right to change my mind with more info)

    I believe this to be 100% correct.

    What I was trying to say with this sentence... "This incompetent and stubborn theme that has become the narrative simply isn't true based on players I've talked to." ... was that the "incompetent and stubborn" narrative that has become attached to Rudy and Bubba simply isn't true (at least in this instance) based on the fact that Brad earned the start with his practice habits. I was not taking a shot at you. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear.

    Why do you have to be so mean? Seriously. Why? Isn't there a nicer way to disagree? It's replies like this that are a real stain to this board. I agree with you - there IS a night and day difference between Brad and Zim. It's obvious. And yes I was at the Montana game and was screaming out loud to put Zim in the game throughout the first half. And I was at the Weber game. But my post wasn't defending the decision to start Brad... I was just passing along information. You appear to missed the entire point of my post. Once again I am not a Heidelbaugh apologist. I brought this up because there is a mob mentality that Bubba and Rudy refused to start Zim because they are stubborn and refuse to admit a mistake. But according to the players I've spoken to Brad earned the start with his practice play - the coaches went with the player that earned it. That's all. I'm not defending Rudy, or Bubba, or Brad, or anyone. Just passing along information.

    Sorry to hear that. What a bummer on multiple levels.

    It's time for this narrative to go away. Brad clearly - and I mean CLEARLY - outplayed Zim in practice all season and immediately leading up to the Montana game. Every player I've spoken to agrees with this. Zim often didn't know what he was doing regarding pre snap reads and making the right choices during the plays in practice. Brad was the clear #2 QB based on the fact that he knew what he was doing and Zim often did not. Based on that I don't think Rudy or Bubba were playing favorites. They chose the QB based on what they observed in practice. Once the first half vs. Montana was over it was clear that Zimmerman needed a shot and he took advantage of his playing time. This incompetent and stubborn theme that has become the narrative simply isn't true based on players I've talked to. Hey - don't shoot the messenger here... I'm not a Heidelbaugh apologist - it's obvious that Zimmerman should be the #2 - but based on what I've been told Brad earned the start in practice.

    I agree with your assessment, and I don’t disagree with a lot of the criticism of Rudy. But Siouxphan27 said that we’d never contend for a championship with Rudy and we won the conference championship with him. That’s all I’m saying.
