    Prospective Sioux Recruits

    Read my first sentence, not worried, just find it strange, especially since that hasn't been the case in the past. Last year they had four '02 recruits by this point.

    Isn't that the truth. What the last two weeks really shows everyone is not to overreact either way. It's too early in the season and at 2-2 it's far from over. I've said it before, but this isn't a bad team at all, lets see how this plays out.

    I have so much faith in Chaves, it won't be like it was in the past. I'm so excited having him as AD.

    This isn't hitting the panic button by any means, just something that I find weird more than anything. I can't believe UND doesn't have a single recruit in the '03 birth year. Most do by now and many have '04 recruits.

    On To UNC

    Time to move on, I mentioned this the last couple days, but UND needs to treat every week like it's the playoffs. Just win.

    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    I'm ready to move onto UNC as well. I'll kind of summarize my feelings since the loss on Saturday. First of all, this isn't a bad football team, they aren't a good football team either, but I think they are closer to that end than the other. There's no "automatic" loss on their schedule, so the season is far from over. The last two weeks have come down to the wire, they made a play week 3, they didn't week 4. Football is a results driven game and unfortunately for this coaching staff, close isn't good enough. It's year 5, there's no more building, after last year it's either win or hopefully Chaves will find someone who can. Their backs are against the wall, I hope they can respond and start stringing wins together.

    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    Agreed. I do want to point out (like you and others have pointed out), that the loss yesterday had equal blame between coaches, players both offensively and defensively. They were in position to win the game and the players didn't make the plays. Too many dropped balls from receivers. I am also very concerned with this pattern of blowing games. Losing yesterday was completely unacceptable. This program cannot get out of its own way. This isn't a bad team. There is still hope yet this year, because the Defense is good (no idea what happened in the 1st half). I've said it before, but they need to think of every game going forward as a playoff game. Do that and they can still have a successful year. Edit: I think most of us would have thought they'd be 2-2 after 4 games. They are still a playoff team with an 8-3 record. If they finish 7-4 (which is what I predicted), I would consider that a successful year as long as they (1) Have some games where they dominate (2) Losses are close. You can build off that.

    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    This is a genuine question that I don't know the answer to. Why didn't UND make adjustments earlier in the game on the defensive side? It was night and day better in the 2nd half, but why not make them earlier? Is there just not enough time when the offense is on the field to get it figured out?

    This. I think the 2015 team was the best Bubba has had, better than the 9-2 team the next year. They were firing at the end of the year.

    2018 Season

    Sitting at 2-2 going into week 5, the season isn't over, but there is also no room for error. I want this team to treat the rest of the year like every game's a playoff game. Just win, starting next week at NoCO.

    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    We'll see how I feel in a couple days, but this loss feels different than any other one during the Bubba era. I always was able to find an excuse in the past (they are building, injuries), but the go to excuses aren't there. Bubba and the team again had a real opportunity to really grab the momentum this program had after last week and again, weren't able to. It being Homecoming really hurts. I don't know if there's any coming back from this one.

    Really like this one, if this happens, the corner will have been officially turned.

    ISU @ UND Predictions

    First off, I do think Idaho State has a quality team, that being said is UND a good team or not? UND 31-17 Two years ago, the defense was very opportunistic, made tons of big plays, but they were terrible at covering the quick pass play. Starting last week, I'm starting to become very confident in this secondary. We'll see how it plays out, but I really like this group.

    2018 Season

    Love to hear things like this, I go back and forth with wanting / not wanting a red shirt pulled. Personally, there needs to be two things (1) Significant playing time (2) Significant upgrade over another option. Like everyone else I love the new four game rule, I hope he sees time in four games and they keep his red shirt. The ship has sailed with Maag, Odom and Waltetzko, but with Waltetzko, I'm hoping for more time from Russo and possibly keeping his shirt intact (now that he's injured until after the bye). I know that's a long shot, but anyone who can play well his true freshman year and is a borderline starter, you know he'd be a monster his 5th year.

    University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    That was my reasoning, especially when you look at CC, I looked at a team like SCSU two years ago, finished tied with UND in points (or maybe one point behind), returned everyone the next year and they finished first.
