    Time For Some New Blood

    I don't have much more confidence in our offense converting a two point either but I'm guessing Bubba would know enough to throw the O out there to try and convert if our defense would have got a turnover for a score after the punt. How many more hypothetical situations do you want to throw out to try and prove what could have happened? How much time would have been left if our defense got the hypothetical stop and our offense didn't convert your hypothetical two point conversion? To answer the question if all the hypotheticals you throw out hopefully our defense would have scored their hypothetical TD fast cause I would not have had much confidence in our offense to convert a two point conversion from the two yard line either so we would have had to convert on a hypothetical onside kick. Which would have been difficult for our special teams to convert. Of everything above I still think the most realistic opportunity was punt and get a three and out and force them to punt it and get the ball back on our side of the 50. Not as far fetched as all your scenarios above.

    I’d like to see a 12th added. With 12 game schedule next year 8 wins will the mark. Yeah, I know.....Playoffs??? But you have to schedule to give yourself a chance.

    What’s 7 divided by 3 cause that’s what we gained the 3 plays prior. I understand math and the situation fine.

    Can you blame him? That’s how we won the week before.

    Go for it on 4th down with what I would call less than 50% chance of converting. Get that same stop, same punt and same return and your now starting at the opposing 15 with previous time off the clock. Its all speculative but when JJ got stopped the play before, I wasn’t confident on 4th. However I wouldn’t have been against going for it. Problem is, I don’t think we could have thrown for it and would have almost had to run a QB run play. Only my opinion which doesn’t count for anything I know

    I would have liked to see a QB change at half at the latest. The offense needed that shot in the arm and it’s no disrespect to Ket who I have been a fan of. He was off Saturday (and maybe the one before).

    If this comment is directed at me i will admit I had zero confidence in our offense getting more than ten yards there. I had more faith in our punter getting off a better punt and pinning them inside the 10, which he didn’t do either.

    I'll take a lot of heat for this but in the situation on Saturday with the way our offense was playing the argument could be made that in that situation Bubba made the right call. Our defense did have a better chance of getting a stop vs. the offense getting two yards (on that day and the week prior). Its easy for me to say sitting in my chair I would have gone for it. However I do feel Bubba plays it way to tight sometimes and hopefully some new blood at OC can get him loosen up a little bit. Bubba will always hang his hat on his defense and hopefully that will change. I can think of a coach that was at a school 80 miles to the south of Grand Forks that punted on a 4th and short in a quarterfinal game in 2010 and ended up losing. He will admit he learned from that play and got more aggressive in his philosophy every year after. It was a learning experience for a guy that was a very good coach even though he played it safe all the time.

    On the flip side you could argue no one cares more about the program than he does. If you had to go to battle with someone, would you not want someone that has unquestioned passion for what you are fighting for? Give the guy a chance to fix his hiring error. This is the life of the coaching world.

    Really??? This happens everywhere. Sometimes even mid season. Best wishes to these two coaches in the future.

    Defense needs a body type and skill set like his on the edge.

    Who would UND hire?

    I’m not big on contributing to this topic as I don’t enjoy challenging someone’s lively hood And I like the coaches as people that are in staff. I’ve always held the thought UND needs to look outside for some coaches but an inside name I’d put back on the table of changes happen is Luke Schleusner. The guy was our best recruiter under Mussman and has been with SDSU to get a feel for a program that recruits top FCS talent against other programs. He knows most on the current staff (that would likely still be around) and how an offense can attack teams in this conference. He wouldn’t be a bad addition if there are openings and he is interested. As a note- I’m not sure he’s ready to be a coordinator but find some money for experience and capacity to get him on board.

    Thank You Seniors

    Best of luck to each of these guys.

    Non-UND FCS Thread

    I’m glad ISU didn’t get in. If you want the whole competitive thing to work you should not reward a DII win. Treat their 6 wins the same as other 6 win teams and compare resumes.
