    2018 Season

    2017 is over. We can b7tch about it all we want, but it's over. I'll use Brian Kelly at the other UND as an example of what I hope Bubba does next year-make some coaching changes but with them a concept change on how the team plays. Kelly was on his last legs last year and needed a good season to save his job. May be true for Bubba too. Along those lines, won't matter who the AD is-Kennedy will decide. Hopefully we don't have the injuries next year and that in and of itself means the team will be better. Add some RSFr who make a difference and get increased size and strength of all those who played a lot this year. With that, guys like Rastas and Blubaugh will not be starters and will be nice depth for the D. On O, hoping the Oline (which at times gave Studs some time today) will be better and I really think that the QB will be better next year. The speed at WR should improve as well with RSFr's. Still need to figure out how to put Brady, Santiago and JJ on the field a LOT! Playoffs next year and a couple of W's along the way OR BUST!

    I would dare say that player who misses Elijah Grady the most is John Santiago.

    I was ticked at lots of play calls last year and blamed Rudy for it. By the same token, I agree that the QB was not gonna win with his arm or feet and the OL didn't allow him to use either. And I know the D was decimated by injuries, but the team gave up over 30 points a game and NO ONE talks about Schmidt.

    Interesting, but if your friend is a coach, this could be a lot of "coach speak" designed to insure his team does not take UND lightly.

    I don't want to be "that guy" but at this point last year, we were all looking forward to the SD game as that would be the measuring stick. Sure didn't like how we measured up, but the SH game has the same feel to it. I'm hopeful things go better this year.

    2018 Fall Camp

    I was at practice for an hour or so today. Nguon was not in the drills. Looks like a groin/leg issue. Was walking without a limp. Thought Helgren looked good. Big kid, but Waletzko is a monster, as is Jenkins. Helgren was at RT. Zeke Ott flies out there. Nice to see a couple players get on their teammates. Don't have Blair's exact comment but it was something to the effect "They're relying on us and we have to knock this !@#$ off." Ty Carter got on the D at one point; unfortunately in one on one drills he got burned on a post. I wish I could have stayed as they were getting into more 11 v 11. Lots of reps for almost all players. Both of the QBs looked fine. I can't tell them apart so I had to keep consulting the depth chart.

    It appears that's what McKinney is doing. Plus, it wouldn't be hard for Gordon to slide back in an emergency. Sounds like Weah has gotten lots of reps too.

    Why two different numbers? Which is more recent/accurate?

    Noticed that too. To be young and innocent again.

    I agree. 7-4 is a legit prediction, but it's not good enough for the playoffs.

    Not a rah, rah forum and everyone's entitled to their opinion. It does get tiresome to see the same POV's from some but it's a free, open forum. But don't get mad at those who grow tired of the same old stuff all the time.

    7-4 does not make the playoffs.

    Thanks for the comp. What's the DLine numbers for them?

    2018 Season

    I saw him walk off the bus before a game last year, and the guy is HUGE. Now he's HUUUUGE! Yes, size isn't everything, but man there's potential.

    Seguin +10 I really liked him in the spring game Williams +5 Swenson +4 Bennett +22 (257) Geier +13 Ott +3 Tobin +1 Nguon +10 Rooney +12 Russon +9 Jenkins +30 (now at 305, a MONSTER) Helgren +8 Here's the weird part. Dline. Tank -3, Cieslak -8, Morrison -10, Engwall -14 and on the O Line, poor Blair is down 4 though he may not have been 270 as the spring roster shows. By the way I counted 6 over 300 and Helgren is at 298 and Russo at 294. Who is calling for the firing of the strength coach? Some of you just look for excuses to fire anyone!

    Leave No Doubt

    Is the first sentence really necessary? I mean, you're not always negative about the coaching staff, remember?

    I can't imagine anything they come up with will be so outstanding that it has to be kept secret for a couple of games. Just use the personnel you have to the best of everyone's ability and the other team won't stop it even when they know it's coming.

    But isn't it possible that due to a better passing QB, the scheme will change? Isn't it possible that some of the play calling was based on the limitations of the QB? If it's shown that Keteringham and/or Zimm are obviously better passers than Studsrud and the play calling stays the same, I'll be grabbing a pitchfork along with so many others here.

    UNC on the road, a week before Montana feels like a trap game. Worried about that one.
