Spring Football 2017

272 posts in this topic

Spring football starts this Friday 3/3 so I figure we should get a thread going. 

What / who are you all specifically looking at this spring?

For me, I am curious about the progress of the OL and transfer QB Zimmerman. I am truly hoping Zimmerman will be a solid backup this season and ready to guide the ship next season.

Do we know if Tyus Carter will be participating in Spring Ball?

Talking to one of  the coaches the other day and he was impressed with Zimmerman, said he throws a very nice ball.  Can't wait!!

For sure, O-line, we have to be better this year getting a push.

This ^^^^^^^^^.

We know what we have at nearly every other position group (LB could be debated) but if the OL plays like last year we will not be improved and could be 0-3 after our non conference schedule.

OL, LB, and S are my question marks.

For the first time in a long time, I'm not too worried about the CB spot.  As long as Tyus Carter comes back 100%, whoever wins that spot opposite Harris will have truly earned it and be fully capable.  Speaking of Tyus, I assume he's getting a medical redshirt for 2016?

This is an absolute must! I am hoping to see a younger guy step up.

I'll start out by admitting I don't know or understand. Seems like we have all sorts of Offensive Linemen. Maybe someone would be willing to explain to those of us (maybe just me) that don't understand what makes a great OL. We seem to have all sorts of size. Are some not strong enough, not experienced enough to understand the offense, not fast or quick enough?? Sorry for the elementary questions - been meaning to ask for a long time.

I'm interested to see that "3 headed monster" at RB.  Will be interesting to see how far Johannesson moves up the depth chart this spring session... Is there a new role or packages for Santiago?  I know the coaches hinted during the signing day chat of Santiago playing in the slot more.  Like to see how this all plays out during spring ball.

I don't think I will be as nervous this year when Santiago returns kicks this year due to our depth at RB.

Interesting that Dulin will be moving to try CB. Would be awesome to see that work out, not going to hold my breath though.

Per the SFI write-up, freshman safety Tim Ryan appears to have left the team.  Not really a position we can afford to lose many players at, but apparently UND/D1 football weren't for him.

"WRONG." -- DJ Trump

They are ... The New Four Horsemen

Santiago, Olivera, Gordon, and Johannesson

If the O line can open up some room this year, we could have a ton of fun watching these guys. So much potential. Hope the coaches can get a little creative. Jeez, throw Greibel and Mckinney in the mix ... there is some scary potential. Hope to see some guys other than Toivenen and Wanzek running that reverse play, and even they did a solid job with it.

No worries there.

Watching those guys turn a corner and chug down the field was like watching Schleusner run with the plow still very much hooked in the national title game. Maybe we get some speed guys going with the reverses

Still pretty cool to think that UND football was rated the 7th best team in the FCS after the regular season.

Already pumped for the season, but really wish the Big Sky would put together an app that could be streamed through Roku. Can't wait for MVFC and the ESPN3 coverage.

I'd be interested to see how the receivers look. It'd be pretty nice to have Mercer progress like he did throughout the season.

I was very pleased with his progress throughout last season. He should have some help around him this season so maybe he wont attract too much extra attention from other teams.

Do we know of any more potential additions? FBS dropdowns? Juco Transfers? I believe Jojo Henderson was supposed to be on campus this weekend.
