  1. Any idea why anyone thinks Covid will just disappear before the spring? I can only think of one reason that would happen.
  2. Lack of depth @ DL and ILB is worrisome. I would add WR. Lost top 2 WR and Izzy. Any ideas on depth chart DL and ILB?
  3. If football doesn’t happen, college athletics will never recover. Overall many colleges will never recover when combining no football(sports)and making classes “virtual”. The gods of higher ed are playing with fire.
  4. Entire facets of the economy can't be shut down for months and not be severe ramifications. If the 2020 football season does not happen, will college athletics ever recover?
  5. Need Maag, and a few others to have monster seasons. I’ll buy the 1000 yards.
  6. Best of luck to Cam. Don’t forget the most important word in your post.
  7. 25-30 touches for McKinney a game and his seasons would consist of 1 game. Kid had a apark for sure, but not an every down RB and not sure hands.
  8. I don't get all this fear of the MVFC? Why?
  9. 4 teams left in FCS. Bubba program played 3 of those teams during its 7-4 regular season. Lost to NDSU playing a 2nd string QB. Lost to Weber St in the last moments of the game. Beat Montana St. In reflection UND played the toughest (top 5)schedule in FCS America? Looks as though UND is much closer to what we all want than many(including myself at times) on this board have thought. Look forward to replies.
  10. Donnell was a beast this season! Great job young man!
  11. A kid from Omaha? No. A kid from anywhere east of the Ilinois border, yes. Also remember at the time Rutgers had NOT played a down in the B1G.
  12. The offense we all witnessed in LA will win some games in the Alerus center in perfect conditions, but will not be worth a damn on the road outside of CA and or any other perfect condition outdoor venue. Sorry, but throwing what amounts to screen passes with the occasional 12 yard crosser is not going to ever win consistently on the road against even mediocre competition(Nicholls). IMO the offense on Saturday was as frustrating as anything Rudy ever put on the field. For 2 qtrs Nichols had NOTHING to worry about on D, we were completely one-dimensional. 1. We need more beef/strength on BOTH lines of scrimmage(much better S&C). 2. We have to have a QB who is a real threat to run. 3. We have to be able to run the ball. The wind was a very real factor on Saturday and we had a poor plan for it at best. 4. We need a 220 lb RB who can run over people as well as make people miss. 5. Have to have WR or two who can stretch the field and are a threat for a deep ball on EVERY play. I was at the game in person on Saturday and I was as frustrated watching Bubba's crew as any time during his tenure with possible exception of 2nd half vs Richmond. If the Nicholls game is at the Alerus, we win by 20+(Chaves and Athletic Department failed miserably).
  13. It was to make a point. You really are foolish to believe a kid wants to play at NDSU instead of a power 5 team? Really?
  14. It's always true unless you consider on the night before signing: "everyone on our board signed somewhere else, we need to fill a spot, how about it" an offer. Also remember the schools where this happens the staff has one foot out the door too.
  15. Until today I just assumed it was just board’s in FCS recruiting offices .....turns out it includes FBS too.
  16. I know that if a P5 school wanted Radunz, offered him and had built a relationship he would NOT be at NDSU.
  17. Unless I was a member of Seth Anderson family or his HS coach or on Kansas staff there is no way I would know for a fact. I DO know Kansas has 10 offers out for SDE ends. Do you think they are all committable? Stop while you are ahead. Here is the list of Kansas offers. Do you think they have 1000 schollies? You think the top of their board for SDE was Anderson? https://247sports.com/college/kansas/Season/2020-Football/Offers/
  18. Sam Houston State was loaded with guys who started careers at FBS schools and decided for one reason or another to drop down to FCS. Does not guarantee they were highly recruited, but much more likely. FCS guys are NOT highly recruited unless you consider multiple FCS offers or a couple of G5 offers highly recruited. When a guy has a p5 offer and ends up at FCS(yes even mighty NDSU), the P5 “offer” was not committable.
  19. FCS schools don’t get any “highly recruited”athletes, unless one considers FBS drop-downs. Just the nature of the beast.
  20. IMO the big edge for Nicholls was LOS and QB. Fourcade was a playmaker.
  21. Every DL and OL need to be 10-30 lbs heavier next season. IMO also plays into the abundance of injuries. By end of game at Nicholls we were the walking wounded at many positions.
  22. If Jaelen Johnson gets to 260, he will be better than Mason Bennett. I would guess Johnson has no idea how to get there.
  23. I’m beating a dead horse too, but FCS football is about development. I’m not seeing guys getting massively bigger, faster stronger.
