    360 guys said he should get a look at QB or TE

    2020 FB Recruiting

    For the most part, you are right, but it's not entirely wrong to use the examples as in either scenario the team is welcoming in someone that didn't want to go to their school in the first place. Whether they decommitted or never committed to that school in the first place just doesn't seem that consequential. Does anyone really think Burrow, Murray and Hurts weren't nationally recruited? They picked one team, and later moved to another- one that likely had some interest in them in the recruiting process.

    Great point about OSU and OK. Heisman QBs won in the last few years at schools they transferred to. Burrow at LSU started his career at OSU and is the likely winner this year.

    How is accepting a very good player bad for the program? His reasons for the decommit was made based on a desire to play for a certain coach, and now the coach is gone, why not take him if he wanst to come here? It's not like he said he disliked the UND staff or program; just felt more likely to see his potential fulfilled with a different coach. There's pride and there's foolish pride.
  5. Agree about SC and I think it's time to rethink the 3/4 D. Bubba is here for at least 2 years. Change needs to come in those around him. Freund was a nice pickup. Not his fault QB has happy feet or receivers can't make tough catches or OLine is great at pass protection, but can't open holes.

    Playoff Time

    Nicholls St was shutout 17-0 by Sam Houston. Isn't that worth discussing?
  7. Were they giving an opportunity to a kid in his last game?
  8. IF McKinney can go and IF JJ gets downhill a few times and IF they use Boltman in the run game, why do they need to burn Skokna's shirt? He is not that much of a difference maker yet.
  9. I still remember watching Rooney's HUDL. More pancakes than IHOP. He's been solid and plays even while banged up a lot.

    UNC GDT

    First, I'd say that the STs has been MUCH better the last few weeks with blocked punts and most KO returns being stopped before the 25 with UNC fair catching a couple last week. I think that's been a plus. Additionally, Peterson has been a good punter. Yes a kid misses FGs but if you're looking to prove a killer instinct point, it seems last week's D is a better target than kicking. IMO

    UNC GDT

    I agree with your last point, but using a missed FG as proof of lack of killer instinct is not a viable argument if only because the kicking game has been an issue for a long time and pervades more issues than killer instinct. Though lets not forget the kicker won a game this year with a same length FG.
  12. You don't win Nattys by going through the motions. EVER! They will play hard and while it's smart to sideline guys who are nicked, the effort will be there.

    Was Evan Holm out there yesterday? I really can't remember. Siegel and Nelson were #13's victims.

    2019 Season

    I like Fleck a lot, but this is his 3rd year isn't it?

    Weber St GDT

    Tackling was a huge issue yesterday. I can't recall enough times the first guy to the ball made the tackle. That said, the depth is considerably better than a few years ago. No Bennett, No Turner, wounded Morrison. I did not see any of the frosh (Beach Chadron) am I wrong. Don't forget, Weber stood toe-to-toe with SU for most of that game. Give the boys some credit for fighting to the finish against a top 3 team. All games have IFs, but IF that flea flicker pass to Toivonen is not underthrown, it's an easy TD. We got 3 in that possession but 7 would have changed things, especially at the end when Boltman tried to make a big play because he is a competitor.

    Just scrolling through the comments and I can't believe, after all the crap thrown at Rudy, we have posters questioning why the O is too fancy/creative. Really?
  17. It was a great atmosphere last night. First time seeing the magnificent scoreboard. It's a space ship inside an arena. My friend has seats at ice level right behind the UND net (1st/3rd) and I found myself watching the game on the huge screen a lot. Really enjoy how this team plays and the skill of so many players.

    He's THE type of speed guy UND could use right now.

    New NCAA Rules

    I think the NCAA as an institution stinks. It's a money grab entity and they saw that the states were going to allow this so they jumped in to make sure they looked good AND I bet they will seek some way to get some of the money the players are supposed to get. Student athletes have not been strictly amateur for awhile as I believe the NCAA suffers from lack of enforcement as much as selective enforcement. Look at College BB and the shoe deals scandal. How could the NCAA not know about that, but it took the feds to investigate and go after the bad guys in this deal. But even the feds can't catch all the bad guys.

    New NCAA Rules

    I feel the same way. I feel torn, yet see the many ways for this to be used/abused. If you're a great recruit, and you really don't care about curriculum, you can tell coaches that you want them to set up promotional deals before you sign the LOI. Then you get to the campus and collect your money and it could be a LOT of money. Clemson and Bama and yes even SU will benefit from this as they are the big dogs in the FB landscape in their respective divisions. Not seeing how it helps UND right now.

    Weber State

    I"m worried about Jax Turner too. Saw Waletzko's dad at the game. Cool he came even though his son isn't able to play.
