    The Betty

    Over the past few years Jones has refused to play big games (NDSU) in the Ralph. The Betty has more "atmosphere", says Coach Jones, makes for a great home court advantage.. Some good that atmosphere did us last year, NDSU laid a 19 point beat down on us. It's time for the coach to put his big boy pants on, we're a DI program, why are we playing games, especially rivalry games, in a glorified high school gym? The hockey team is out of town this weekend, the Ralph is wide open. Both NDSU's men and women bb teams are in-town this Saturday They should have put the games in the Ralph and marketed the heck out of it. Work darn hard to fill the joint, to include getting a big number to come up from Fargo. With the hockey team out of town, and the games on Saturday, they should have no problem pulling 10,000 fans in, if marketed correctly. I think the last time they played NDSU in the Ralph the drew 9,000. Look, 10,000+ fans in the big arena can create an atmosphere that can make the Betty's pale by comparison, just ask the hockey crowd. Coach Fitch, who had those great Phil Jackson era teams, would never have played those big games in the Betty. Now why they built the Betty to hold no more tan 3,000+ is a subject for another day, but was a huge mistake.

    UND (4-3) @ Creighton (5-2) 12/5 7PM

    I watched this team play Utah Valley on FSN, not impressed. Their offense consists of running a weave out on the top of the perimeter until someone gets open for a 3 point shot, and then chuck the ball up. It had better go in because no one in green and white is anywhere near the bucket for a rebound. The transition offense consists of Geno, or one of the other speed mercahants, crashing down the lane and taking an out of control, awkward, off balance shot. Very undisciplined, this is the area of their game that reminds me of pick-up playground basketball. We are painfully undersized and losing Bernhardt and Shanks to transfers hurt.. Is there any height help on the horizon? Someone, maybe Jones himself mentioned a player named McNaulty(?).

    My bad, somehow I knew that.

    Why wasn't Nate Ketteringham, the quarterback transfer from Sac St, started. At least he has 2 years of experierance . Are they trying to keep him eligible for 2 more years or what?

    UND vs da Griz

    The Griz are having a good year. Even though our offense is waking up, our defense will not have enough to prevent a Griz 51-28 thrashing at Washington Grizzley Stadium.

    UND vs da Griz

    It would be sweet to lay on the Griz....but I don't see it happening. They are starting to look like the Griz of old and are having a good year. Once again we will be facing a hot qtr.back. Our defense is still reeling from injurys, we continue to have mental discipline/focus problems. Even though our offense is starting to show signs of life, it will not be enough to offset the numbers the Griz offense will lay on us. Montana 51-UND 28.

    2017-18 Season

    Sof the freshmen and transfers who are the ones to keep an eye on, who will have an immediate impact?

    2017-18 Season

    If Bernstine played consistently like he did against Arizona he would be hard to replace.

    2017-18 Season

    That's a terrible loss, he was the only experienced "big" man we had coming back. He really played well against Arizona. He could bring the ball up the floor and also play big on the front line. Jones does a good job with our guard play but he really struggles with centers and big forwards. Is there any hope at that 6'8" + size?

    2017-18 Season

    I admit to not paying much attention to buckets since we played Arizona last March but I was under the impression Bernstein was a junior last season and would be coming back. Someone on this forum made the comment that they hoped Shanks leaving wouldn't cause Bernstein to jump ship. Apparently he did. Any reason why?

    Offense Against Cal Davis

    I asked the pa on 1st down question because I wanted to know if we would do the unexpected. It's a little like pitching to Joe Mauer. Everybody, including your gramma and dog, knows that Mauer rarely swings at the first pitch. The pitcher facing him knows that he can safely throw a meatball right down broadway and get an easy strike. Just like the Mauer example, everybody knows UND will run on first down. Throwing off of pa on 1st down, especially to start the game,.may cause a defense not to load up the box.

    Offense Against Cal Davis

    I didn't have a chance to watch or listen to the game last night. I would like to know if uND threw off play action on first down at any time during the game..

    Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    Ironically we lost our best cornerback, Harris, while doing a pre-fall camp conditioning program.
