Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

Everyone has injuries.  The Bison have had many to key players.  Getting pushed around on both sides of the ball is the exact opposite of the philosophy the coaching staff wanted this team constructed on. Our good running backs could be completely wasted if they don't figure out the offensive line situation.

  Not having any depth at linebacker in a 3-4 defense doesn't help.  Be interesting to see if off field problems start to arise if things continue to head in the wrong direction.

Bubba Ball when neither line is getting it done is really tough to watch.

i don't think i have ever seen a more pathetic performance from a backup qb (heidelbaugh) in garbage time that what brad did on those few throws at the end....and to make good players better you need guys pushing the starters into thinking that their jobs aren't safe...keaton's job is very very safe

3rd string guy didn't look good either. Safe to say Ketteringham has the inside track for next year's starting QB

Yet their lines moved the line of scrimmage consistently, and ours had virtually no movement. 

You brought up injuries  ....what lines from what schools that have sustained 5 injuries from a particular position that are moving opposing lines???

I can blame him that...he said it, you didn't. I mentioned it earlier .....I've missed maybe 5 games in 25 years ..have been a fan ....always will be a fan.   I will be at the next home game just like the last 25 years.  Loud and proud. 

I hear ya, and good for you. That kind of support is awesome, but I know I'm not going to feel bad about it. I could travel and spend money to watch bad football, or I could take the time and money and do something with my kids. I'll still watch the games and get up there at some point, but I may not make that extra sacrifice I otherwise would have.

I can see both sides of this. On one hand, should we expect people to drive 3-4 hours to watch what we saw today? Probably not. On the other hand, if you live in Grand Forks (as I do), and you don't have any previous commitments, then real fans of the program should be there and support the team.

Agreed, if I lived in GF and certainly if I had season tickets, would I be there? Absolutely!

The initial post was not directed to you .....it was directed to someone that clearly stated they were selling their tickets for homecoming.

I know, no worries. Frankly I wish I lived closer to by season tickets. But too much money to travel for bad games. I've actually made it to some football games, but not even a hockey game in the last 10 years. Something that surprises me. Hope the rest of the year and next year is better.

injuries are a problem. I still think this team has talent, but mentality and attitude are one of the biggest issues at this point. Ouch.

  Bubba has 3 classes here to work with here.

Right, and if he was able to redshirt them like you would normally want to do......his first true recruiting class would be Sophomores and his second true recruiting class would be redshirt freshman.

Is it safe to say the only direction right now for this FB team to go is up?

A safe is where you put the cash. We need to keep the program getting donations. 

Wrong place for this  question. There is little or no press in No. Dak.

You live in Oxbow was the $ spent there on the diversion buyouts or buyoffs.

Something needs to change either someone getting fired or something idk. To have the first sellout in 9 years? Then blank the bed not good. Right now it looks like a leadership problem.

We can't make excuses, but we can't ignore injuries. Should Bubba have had greater depth after 3 years is the question, but to lose so many good LB's is really hard to put on him.

When you start with next to nothing, then the answer to this question is no. It will take another 2 or 3 classes to really build the kind of depth within the program that you need to be good week in and week out. The injuries didn't bite as hard last year and that helped us win 9 games. This year, our luck has run out and we are playing guys that are clearly not ready because we don't have anyone else. I am still optimistic about the program as a whole.

I would replace Rudolph. It is clear that he has no imagination and is not willing to use the athletes he now has.

So, shouldn't the other positions be able to get a push then? So by that thinking, we are totally screwed the rest of the year or until we get someone back.

Correct. This year is not looking good.

That was painful and completely uncharacteristic of the last two seasons defenses.  Not sure what changed but its crazy how porous they have gotten.  Injuries are only part of the problem.

Someone mentioned it earlier, but why the heck is Brady taking quick passes from the slot and not John?
