Why are we even going after that punt

rudolph won't get any better

we can do better than that

Did Richmond ever hold Oliveria to less than 4yards? I just don't understand what I just watched. Game tied, Oliveria 5 yards on first down, take him out, go empty on 2nd down roll left with a right handed QB, incomplete. Don't get it.

It makes much more sense when you realize that Rudolf has been living in Bizarro World this season where everything is opposite.  Opponents have 9 in the box - time to pound the rock continuously - the 2nd and 9, 3rd and 7 situations put us right where we want to be.  We're getting 5 yards a crack on the ground and need to chew some clock - time to rest Olivera and chuck the pigskin.  

This may be the most frustrated I have ever been after a Sioux football game (and with the Sioux Falls game that is saying something).  Time for Bubba to be a real leader and fix some constant problems like special teams and offensive schemes.

Damn. This one will hurt for a while. 

Firing coaches isn't the answer, most likely. Just need to mature as a team and be better for 4 quarters. 

Too many mistakes and big plays given up to win in 2nd half. 

I get what you are saying, and yeah, there are multiple areas we could have won that game. making the first FG. Not blowing that turnover. etc.

Situationally, not running Oliveira late and passing at the end was a coaching issue, not an execution issue and it did cost us. I'm a Bubba fan (big time) but he has to know what rudolph is doing? and get the final say? right? I guess I just don't understand what they where trying to do late. it didn't make sense.

Overall this is young team who got valuable experience today. These are very good coaches who got valuable experience today. I have complete confidence in these guys to get better. It just hurts when its at home, you have hyped it big time, and it goes down that way. Just a gut punch.

I agree i still have faith in the coaches!

Torrey Hunt, 3rd and long towards the end of the game, bat the damn ball away on the deep throw, don't go for the toss-up int when you haven't shown the ability all season to win those battles. Had he just punched the ball away instead of going for that pick, UND likely gets the ball back on a punt.

I do, minus the special teams coaching...horrible and horrible decision to go for the block.

Good lord. Absolutely the worst decision in many years.  Catch the punt at midfield and grind the clock and they can't beat us. Instead running into kicker and they go down and score and off and running from there

Blow a 24-7 lead...........lots to discuss but it is what it is. Season's over. Was a good season though. More positives than negatives.

A good team overcomes that penalty. Rattled. Is this one on Rudolph?

Partly, he lost the coaching battle versus the Def. coordinator for Richmond. Kostich didn't earn his paycheck tonight either.

Not a football person,but our secondary sucks ass so bad.

So how did they led FCS in INTs this season? That is what won the game vs. N. Arizona a few weeks ago. That is an area that needs to improve and it will, but they did some good things this season. And they will get better.
