Can't believe no one has posted this yet!!  This is a huge pickup!! Johannesson is a stud.  Kleiman wanted him bad.  Definitely nice to see UND get some of these guys over NDSU.  Will be interesting to see if and where they will use him next year.  Backing up Norberg would be the best bet.  Like the article says, 
UND will have a crowded backfield.  But if there is a good place to have depth, the RB/FB position is one of them.

Santiago needs to be the punt returner IMO, give him as many opportunities as possible. Everyone  in the stands cringed every time Seibe fair caught the ball.

From what I heard there would be plenty of cringing if John was returning punts, also.  There is a reason for everything.

Agreed we need someone with hands and speed, Seibel didn't have both.

A good punt returner is not always the fastest or the stud RB. Hence, Devin Hester or Ted Ginn of the NFL. Kick returner types have a ball skill and comfort level of playing in space and being able to see the field and ensuing running lanes.

Good point. UND may have to recruit towards a primary return specialist. Maybe the commit from Washington state (Cameron McKinney) can excel at return duties ..... 

I know that Seibel is not the answer. He can't get it done.

That interception against Weber was amazing.   quickness of a Mountain Lion and strikes just as hard.

Just needs to prove he can stay healthy and entire season.

What do you when you run the table in conference?

As Steely Dan once sang: You go back, jack, do it again

For playoffs? Bubba has improve the record of the team by two games ever year.  So the battle cry should be once playoff start

Be two games better, twice.

Why not us, why not 2017-18 season?

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Much tougher schedule is gonna make a repeat difficult. Btw, a friend tells me the SU Red shirts are their BEST EVER.

Not sure if I believe it, but they are very confident going into next year, too.

Actually got an easier conference schedule next year, minus EWU at home.

Better than the 2013 senior class? Poppycock.

Well if they can make it to Frisco too maybe those red shirts can prove it against us.

The same has been said at the Flagship.  And, the recent safety and QB commits, both huge targets.  And, mid year deep threat McKinney.   Plus SU faithful are still dumbfounded by Johanason.

This is called a Reverse Curse.

IF things go wrong next year, I'm blaming you. :)
