    Hey lets bash these guys after they beat the #5 team in FCS who have double the wins as UND the last five years because everyone on this board could coach the team better. WTF - be happy for day.

    They beat a team that has been in 5 of the last 6 Semi finals, at home and we still have people p#&#ed off. I know some of you want Bubba fired so this must be bittersweet, but I am loving this team now.

    A few things after being at the game: Amazing experience. Had the opportunity "sailgate" on a really impressive boat before the game. Once in a lifetime. (It's good to know people who know people.) OLine - better than I expected and played pretty solid pass protection. Run blocking was tougher, but overall I'm encouraged. DLine & LBs - Solid pressure all game. It wasn't Sack City, but UWs QB was harrassed and took a number of good hits. Run D - back to where this team was 2-3 years ago. WR - just like last week, separation was hard to get. RB - I'm not sure Brady was hurt. He got a few carries later in the game, which tells me he was in the penalty box for something. DB - Gotta tighten up that outside coverage. On to Texas. Can't wait!

    Last week vs P5 FBS Washington, we held their hyped up Heisman QB and potential NFL receivers in check for 3 quarters and stopped their rushing game. We picked off 2 passes and had great pressure on Jake Browning for 3 quarters... which lead to the fans booing at halftime! SH is fast, but not a P5 FBS playoff contender fast. We held our own last week and shall again this week!

    To some on this board Bubba is getting more criticism than his total record deserves. Possibly. Here's my two cents. Bubba seems insistent on running a 1980's scheme. When you do that, you need to be successful because watching this scheme fail is brutal. He seems strangely and frustratingly inflexible in his outlook - even when he doesn't have the personnel to match and has shown a real reluctance to make in-game adjustments. He has selected perhaps the only human being who is less introspective as his O coordinator. Bubba would make a great D coordinator, but it's frustrating to have a Head Coach who seems to use much of his game-time thinking on calculating how far back we could put the other team if we punted from where we have the ball. This is not to say he hasn't made positive strides with this program - especially the 2016 season (minus the playoff game). I think we played our butts off at Washington - I just wish Bubba wanted to play to win instead of playing it safe. That punt call summarizes Bubba in a nutshell - you could make argument that it was technically a correct call, but only if you don't factor in the game situation. We are playing a PAC - 10 team on the road and are driving and giving them a game of it. We are playing with house money - for the love of all that's holy, play to win. To me, it's his inflexibility more than his record. We need to take the next step real soon. Perhaps at Sam Houston. We all want him to succeed (and loosen up a bit).

    So I'm assuming when they preview the NDSU game vs Cal-Poly they will show a pic from a previous year of UND v. Cal-Poly. This game should be all about UND not who MVSU has played in the past. The Herald just pisses me off.

    As frustrating as it was to see over and over, that was the only play that was actually gaining consistently gaining positive yards. UW has an incredibly talented defensive backfield that was more or less able to toy with the WR's because Ketteringham didn't have the time to let routes develop. Remember the name Taylor Rapp (#7), you'll be seeing it Sunday's next year, he was a monster back there even when he wasn't involved in the play. Even UND's fastest WR's weren't going to scare UW's secondary, so they put out the guys that know the plays/routes and can block. Nate seemed about a 1/2 second quicker on getting off his spot than he needed to, though in his defense, it was crazy to see the size and speed of UW's defense. I do think UND would have had a bit more success of Olivera could have played more. He could have converted a few of those 2nd/3rd/4th and shorts that UND struggled on, especially in the first half. His style of running would been a nice weapon to have. Tank not being able to go hurt the defense. Greer did great but got gassed taking that many reps against guys that size. Some more rotation there probably stops a few of those bigger runs in the 4th. Defense had the right calls on quite a few plays, just half a step slow or slightly wrong angle, possibly due to the speed difference. That being said, a lot of encouraging things from the defense. Also pretty impressive for UND to not have a single accepted penalty all game (though one PI was declined after an amazing TD catch). To play a clean game with no false starts, holdings, etc against a team that much more talented shows good discipline and is encouraging. I didn't agree with the first punt on 4-1, especially when they had the offense out, ready to go. The second one, JJ easily had it if he cuts to the right, instead he tried to push the pile straight and the UW guys stopped him just short. Mixed feelings on the field goal. I get taking the easy points, especially since they hadn't moved the ball on the first three downs, but on the other hand, you're right there. UW fans were very complimentary and they all said they ended up sticking around for more football than they planned on. Not that the game was in doubt, but there was more than a little noticeable tension when UND had a chance to make in 17-7 with 6 minutes left in the 3rd. Peterson left some of his starters and rotation guys in an extra drive or two when the UND defense was completely gassed to make sure to get a few extra points on the board after last weeks loss. That being said, their back-up QB and RB are no joke, I was told both have chances to be better than their starters.

    I coach high school boys basketball and I remember several years ago when we had a weak team and played a team that was far superior in terms of both talent and size. We played our guts out for the entire game, but still ended up losing by 17. After the game in the handshake line, as I shook the opposing coach's hand I could tell that he was not real happy with his squad and that he had gained a lot of respect for ours, as the only thing that he said (grunted) was "Way to compete!" Those three words are one of the biggest compliments that I've ever received as a coach.

    First off a huge tip of the cap to Steve Greer. He played his ass off yesterday and was disruptive all game. I’ve !@#$ on him in the past for not putting on enough weight and for being barely just a warm body even though I had expectations for him coming out of hs. He earned my respect yesterday and I hope he keeps it up all season. The front seven was for real yesterday. Would have liked to see more than just pressure though. We need to actually get home and lay the wood on the qb. The secondary was outclassed for most of the game. Harris moves better this week but still seems to be a liability. Blubaugh looks much improved from last year and has some dog in him, hopefully he can start to find the ball in the air now as he still struggles down field. Overall, the d outperformed expectations for three quarters then ran out of gas thanks to the hapless offense. It appears the o will only succeed when playing inferior competition. Toivonen is a D2 wr, I’m sure he works hard and is a good kid but he’s too damn slow. It’s inexcusable to not throw some speed in their. We needed one of the little guys in the slot to be a reliable outlet. The lack of aggression on offense yesterday was pathetic. We need to always be in attack mode on both sides of the ball. The kicking situation is alarming to say the least. It’d be one thing if he was blasting the ball and just missing but the ball does not jump off his foot. It’s ugly and laborious. Kicking is like golf, a proper swing is fast and effortless and the ball should explode on impact. I am very concerned about this and agree with UNDbiz that it will most likely cost us a game or two which could mean watching the playoffs from home again. This is unacceptable. Gotta have a competent backup at all positions. If the offense shows up next week we should be able to win.

    The success of the D was frankly shocking to me. First TD was all on offense after the fumble. They were controlling the line of scrimmage for the most part for the first 3 quarters, Harris is back, and their play gave me hope for some big things this season.

    You know, despite the score right now, I can't say that I'm all that encouraged by this game. There's a whole lot that needs to be corrected before facing better competition.

    Thanks. Excited to watch UND football. Excited for this season. Not a parent. A relative tho. Noah has helped us become committed UND football fans. Hoping for a better season than last year. Good Luck.
