    Und doesn’t benefit from high end talent . When a “stud” goes down it’s magnified 10 fold.

    Bennet is the guy that und CANNOT afford to lose. He was the only guy on the d line that requires a double team.
  7. Unlike many/most jobs....accepting a staff position with a sports program sets you up for an unfortunate possibility of being scrutinized publicly. They know that coming in. It has been on display for decades across the nation. Und doesn’t sit on an island when it comes to fans questioning or calling out the coaching staff. Unlike decades ago there is now a site for those of us that want to show our displeasures. Has nothing to do with hiding behind a moniker. But it’s also a site to appreciate the good things. And yes,...there are plenty of other underlying issues at und that would/could assist in the help of und football. It has been discussed at length. But when it comes to play calling , lack of in game adjustments, player discipline on field ...etc ..that is on the coaches. It has nothing to do with phase II or WW1 built lockers and offices . Recruiting is where that hurts.

    2019 Season

    Und football needs a complete re boot. My chronological framework of bubba from “14-19” : When bubba was hired I was in disagreement with the decision but accepted it as I had no choice. Since he was well known here, we all knew of his track record....nothing stood out on his resume other than perhaps his D2 days as a DC for und. Being a great guy that bleeds und green should not be a determining factor when considering a HC. Year 1 was a mess, as maybe it was expected, but defensively you could definitely see an improvement. He seemed to install discipline and hard work. Offense was brutal however. Year 2 I fully jumped on board. After beating Wyoming it seemed as though und was on the right track. This is bubba’s best team. There was talent and the opposing coaches hadn’t learned bubba ball yet. It was still at that element of surprise. They were hot at the right time and without a doubt should of been playoff bound. Truly believe they could of won one or two games in the playoffs. The bandwagon fans have taken notice. Uptick in und football awareness is real Year 3 . Crowd attendance strengthens. Weak schedule. Opposing coaches have had a year to digest and dissect bubba ball. They were starting to out coach bubbas crew ....but und would somehow find ways to escape numerous games with a victory. A completely broken Richmond team exposes them. Through out the year I was lambasting Rudys play calling. Santiago starts his descend. Year 4. Big expectations. Coming off a seeded playoff year with some returning talent the crowd and excitement had grown considerably. Fail!! Fail!!! Fail!!! Complete fail!! Naia quality team. Nothing else to be said Year 5. Excitement and fan attendance in a downward spiral. Had moments. Coaches are embarrassingly exposed. Players quit playing. Average to weak schedule. Fail!! Year 6. Opposing coaches know exactly what they’re getting into when they play und. Attendance has weakened Crowd is dead. Team plays with no emotion. Complete lack of discipline. ST crews have to be fcs worst. Talent an issue all around. 5 games left. No faith in bubba so I don’t expect any improvements nor playoffs. The trend is clear. Bubba is not HC material. The only one on the staff that has potential is Danny but he is being held back by Bubba, Rudy’s recruits and inexperience as a OC. Not sure if he is retainable at this point. At least with mussman you knew the odds of winning a game was bleak. The expectations were extremely low. With bubba .....its a roller coaster of emotions. Mainly depressing but occasionally upgraded. There are moments where it looks good and the fans interest peaks ....than bamb ..a meltdown occurs. And another. Then maybe a decent showing and we think “well if they can win the next two, they have a chance.” Then another massive fail. Even when they win it almost feels like a lose. Their wins almost seem lucky and their loses are either blowouts or full of WTFs. Headache Big sky teams= finesse Mvfc= physical. Mvfc teams are built along the lines. Und is going to be extremely out matched both from the talent and coaching aspect in that league. Bubba, I believe, truly wants to be a physical team but doesnt recruit as such. He is being physically exposed in a non physical league. Change is needed I will say this again. ....bubba has only two victories over playoff bound teams in 6 years or 63 games. There have been plenty of opportunities squandered. I don't consider Sam or Davis to be playoff bound this year. IMO... this year is another year of below average. Three years running. With 5 games left , I guess theres a chance ....but we’ve seen this song and dance before. Not happening.

    Bubba is always a mess. Week in and week out. Look at him during a game... painful! The only thing more painful is the results.
  10. Hey Ozzie. Your thoughts on today’s game ? You are 100% positive with und football. ....thoughts ? Is und football average, below or above average? You usually wait 2-3 days to call out the negative responses but I’m sure your watching. Thoughts please.

    I would like to add......und was better than Idaho st at absolutely nothing. They would beat und 9 out of 10 times ....and they are bad. Real bad. And they completely destroyed und.
  12. He was never a coach in GF (und). He was surrounded by und connections at s Illinois and maybe was bogged down because of that. He has more than proved himself once he was left the und connection

    Because they have proven themselves. Ndsu has had one of the best Ds in the fcs the last decade or so. Und hasn’t had one of the best offenses in the fcs, actually one of the worst, in bubba years. Hard to promote an OC to HC with that resume.

    Danny doesn’t have any HC background. Barely has OC background. Not saying at one point he couldn’t become a nice HC candidate but not now. Und needs a qualified winner ...whether it’s naia, d2 or d1. It starts with the Und brass. If und is committed to getting a qualified HC they need to “show me the money” . Bubba and mussman have been easy hires. Pay bottom barrel because they both wanted to be here. Cheap cheap cheap. Nothing to do with accolades.

    Let’s lay it to rest. He’s incapable. Whats your thoughts?

    At what point does the Und brass seriously make a decision on bubba. Bubba is a great guy and bleeds Kelly green ....just not worthy to head coach. Do they let him ride out his contract ? Finish him tonight? Let him go to years end than bye bye? Do nothing...everything is fine ?
  17. Completely agree but what in the committees thought process was that bubba was a better candidate than Deboer? I would venture to say it was the und ties. Bubba was able to show the committee he had a 22-21 d2 record and did absolutely nothing at S Illinois as a DC. Kalen deboer had a 67-3 record ...3 national titles. Hopefully Chavez can change the ways
