  1. Three teams will keep und out of  playoffs .  Idaho st , Unc and poly.  S Utah could possibly be team 4.  A team that is in playoff consideration should NEVER go toe to toe with three 2- 8 (6-25 D1) ball clubs. In those three games und was outscored 95-119. Lost by 35 won by 4 won by 7.  Opponents won the first down battle. Und was out gained yardage wise 434- 492 average/ game. The opposing three teams were penalized more.... 205 yards to unds 173.    Und goes 2-1 vs those 3 while losing nearly every significant statistic. 

    Und has won 6 games by the point difference of 40, 4, 2, 4, 4 and 7 to a combined team record of 27-36.   Und is a handful of plays away from being a 2-8 team    

    Und sits with two solid games....Montana st (W)  and Weber (L). 

    3 bad performances vs 2 nice performances  

    What will the committee see?

    Please give it up.   I know that fact that we won doesn't fit your narrative but we did win.

    I'm surprised that a Longtime fan would work so hard to run our own team down.

    Bubba needs to be gone. Would you agree?  I’m more vocal than most . Have been and always will be but I will never give up on und football.  I’m an extreme hard core fan.  But I’m also they’re biggest critic. I will continue my negative bubba posts until he is gone . I did the same with Rudy for 3-4 years.

    absolutely not true.  We didn't play very well and and still won.  This shows that we were the better team as does the scoreboard.

    Unc didn’t play well either.  Both teams had 3 TOs and that same amount penalty yards.  It was a home game for und.  Und wins by 7 points which und won on a blocked punt td.   If this game was in Greeley they win.

    8 is the absolute minimum a playoff should be. I think FCS would be better served with a 16 team field with no auto qualifiers.

    perhaps 16.   But the fcs really doesn’t have 16 teams that could contend for a title. There is usually a handful per year that truly have a chance.

    That's absolutely a terrible idea unless you completely throw out autoqualifiers and figure out something better than a purely subjective closed meeting room as the basis of field selection. 

    Without a doubt the autos have to disappear.  So many conferences with autos that are d2 caliber.  So many bad teams in the fcs.  Pick the best 8 like the fbs picks the best 4

    None of the teams 16-24 really belong, but the field is 24. 


    I had mentioned it before but I feel the fcs should go to a 8 team playoff format. Way too many participating ribbons at a 24 team format.  The fbs is only a 4 team.

    Look at the resumes of the teams between 16-24, they all have bad losses. We finish 7-4 we belong.

    Without looking at teams 16-24 resumes.... what does und bring to the table that would be considered playoff worthy?  I realize the fcs is weak but there has to be teams that would better represent that post season.    Und has struggled mightily with three 2-9 teams. Getting completely blown out in one of them and losing the yardage game in all three.   They will have beaten one playoff bound team.  Hardly screams “belong” worthy.

    If there had been zero attrition on OL recruits I would agree with you.

    Having 100% attrition is nearly impossible.   But if they were able to keep Merz, Grady , Slater .....etc would that been enough to counter anything that we see today?   Not sure.   But I agree the attrition for whatever reason on the line has been bad.

    Freunds in a tough spot knowing his OL can’t run block unless the d isn’t expecting it.

    Why is that?  After six years of  bubba recruiting you would think the personal would be there on the line.  It’s pretty apparent Bubba wants to ground and pound to control TOP and yet he has not had a line to work with.  Add to that, they were asked to lose a good percentage of the weight this off season.  This coaching staff is a joke.   


  10. Sam (5-5) lost to a 2-8 team today.  No playoffs. 

    Montana st is the one and only game und can hang their hat on. 

    Cal poly and Unc will be recognized as bad wins.  They escaped two 2 win teams   

    Idaho st 2-8 ....absolutely throttles und.  If und only lost ...that would be one thing.  Und was thrown about like a toddler in that game.  

    Und doesn’t deserve to be playoff bound.  No playoffs =Chavez will have his ammo to rid of bubba.    

  11. The better team did not win today. 

    Unc has better athletes and coaches.  

    Und does not belong in the playoffs.  If they somehow make the playoffs that only means bubba will still be coach.

    I want the team to play well in the final two games and then make the playoffs. That's what I want.

    Great.  So do I.  How about bubba on winning the “big” games?  Has he excelled at that?!

  13. 2 minutes ago, SiouxBoys said:

    So because of a bad 16' playoff experience, we should hope to not make the playoffs ever again? 

    I’ve laid out my reasonings.  What’s yours 

  14. Just now, SiouxBoys said:

    You're right. The program would be way better off and completely benefit from not making the playoffs. Nothing absolutely ridiculous to see here.

    I’m never right.  I just need to hear what und has gained from the “16” playoff experience ?

    Imagine losing by 3 on the road at the number 3 team in the country and then posting this. Woof.

    We all live the reality that und football never wins a big game. 10 years running. Some people are frustrated others accept it. The forum gives an outlet to everyone.
