    Doesn't square with what everyone on this broad has always said that und only recruits players with good character.  Lots of pressure on Bubba to win.

    There is pressure on college coaches to win??

    Well - things should be scrutinized 

    this is a black eye for UND even if everything was done right - between a rock and a hard place

    Black eye to follow the law??

    What would you have done different?

    You need to learn more about Title IX and how their proceedings work.  This isn't Johnny Depp vs Amber Herd.  

    I stopped reading the article at the quote below…..zero fact in there.  Only an opinion and it could be taken as affirming that if proper Title IX protocol was followed that the other depts would not have known details of the investigation.  Do I think they knew….probably   

    "I don't know that they would have been directly told, 'Hey, just so you know, there's an investigation going on,'" Dearth said. "But given who all the individuals were, I absolutely believe that the witnesses probably would have overlapped, and so even if they were never given an official notification of it, I'm sure probably people in the department would have found out about (in) some way."

    I'm not saying you have to discuss the specifics of Otis. I would think you could discuss your general approach as a coach though. Its not as though coaches have never commented on players or punishments in the past. Isn't this precisely why you have legal and PR departments?

    What is the point of having a press conference or releasing a statement if your not going into specifics.  Looks worse to be honest.  

    A statement was released for the article….

     However, a university spokesman released a statement saying, "The University has followed all appropriate policies, as well as state and federal laws."

    Officials have already confirmed there were accusations and an investigation. Bubba and the athletic dept could absolutely acknowledge if and when they knew of the accusations without violating any laws or policies. They just choose not to. 

    Or they could say nothing and let the process play out the way it should/did in the correct lanes.  They could take the Bison approach and say “it will be handled internally” and lock the media out of practices.

    If the Bison had an all American player accused of 2 rape charges you guys would be all over it with demands who knew what and when did they know it.

    This is what everyone does not understand, you will not be seeing Otis play in October UND Vs. Missouri State. Otis is banned from stepping onto UND property or any property leased by UND. He will not be able to play this game! 

    I’m not sure how that works……

    Good lord, man. 

    Pretty tough to misinterpret. Cheap shot on the way out.   Program did a lot for him.  Hopefully he understands that.

    LOL please post those falling apart posts.  If und starts offering HS recruits NIL money beyond what the rest of the conference is doing that's desperate. I never come here and start &#33 but respond to &#33 that you post and the truth seems to hurt.  Good luck buying HS kids.  














    Will you feel the same way about NDSU if/when they start doing things the rest of the conference isn’t doing? 

  10. 15 minutes ago, bison73 said:

    He never said that. Youre stretching.

    It’s not stretching.  Cause he comes in here all the time and talks !@#$ about how UND loses guys to the portal so things are falling apart, coaches leave so things are falling apart, making a recommendation that UND get on board with NIL for recruiting is desperate.  Than the same thing happens in Fargo and it’s crickets.  

    So it’s not a stretch.  Its calling him on his simpleness.

    You having trouble comprehending my post?

    Are you saying the Bison will never, ever do this even when the rest of college athletics are going to?

    UND needs to expand more into cold weather research.  Talk to the Twitter King and get some money poured into a research facility for electric cars.  If they can be made more viable in cold weather that is a huge additional market for Teslas.

    Great idea.  It will be valuable on everything from snowblowers to heavy equipment.  It’s coming whether everyone is ready for it or not.

    Midco's production and coverage is great, no doubt.  Far better than what I have seen from either the KVLY or ForumComm coverage of NDSU in the past 10 years, and it's not close.  I just keep coming around to availability.  I know Midco coverage of games is fairly accessible via numerous combinations of apps and/or streaming services.  But that's just not the same as simply flipping on the TV on a Saturday afternoon, and boom there's the football game.  I think there is value to terrestrial/linear TV coverage.  Not saying I favor leaving Midco just because of that, just that it is worth exploring IMO.

    As far as radio, I would really love it if KNOX were the flagship of UND sports.  There is so little radio talk of UND sports it really frustrates me.  I feel there would be more buzz around UND sports in general if the only station that has local talk for 12 hours a day had the rights, because then they would actually talk about them.

    Agree with your first paragraph 100%. 

    The girl that got us there also has two other guys she is seeing for other sports outside hockey.  That is where UNDs growth potential is at for the athletic dept.

    one pitfall of transferring is that you then put yourself back in the pool of available players along with incoming freshmen, so you are vying for spots with a larger group of players. . it looks like the NCAA is looking at this issue:


    Seeing how the portal has really benefited the top P5 programs I see this as an opportunity for the top NCAA programs to now be able to take in the top portal players and continue to sign the top signing day classes.  The benefit for this is change is to the top schools/conferences and not the players or G5 or smaller schools.

    It was low bid and und went with rfp to call their bluff 

    Here is your other quote when it was first announced.  Still agree with it?

    ”The biggest is who can handle hockey almost every weekend KVLY won’t do tape delay broadcasting almost every weekend    wday will be busy with ndsu basketball in winter  so assuming midco will get it back probably cheaper then their first offsr

    stupid chaves”

    And with that decision, Anderson (USD) and Harden-Hayes (NDSU) have both re-opened their recruitment after originally committing to transfer to UMKC. Any chance UND has any interest in the former?

    Would be a nice addition in a more up tempo offense.

    Honest question here. Are we in any better shape going into this season than we were last year? Doesn’t seem like the portal has helped much. What should we expect? Thanks.

    I think so.  Have a huge loss on the OL but as a group i think the other 4 positions are better and we have in my mind one of our top position coaches with that group.  

    Defensively, one of the two transfer safety’s need to pan out.  Thin at CB but still think an option of moving Fort back to that position changes that if it’s needed based on play of the unknown players.

    Sorry not big on eaglestaff, I have watched him in AAU and high school.  He shoots a well uncontested 3 but doesn’t play defense.  

    Does anyone play defense in AAU?

  19. 1 hour ago, Bison Dan said:

    None of them have indicated they want to move up.  The Bison are ready, if they call we're gone.

    NDSU and about 7-10 other schools that are actually in states that appear on the map of the current conference.

    I interpreted your post to mean that UND wasn't interested in a Sioux Sports fundraiser: "Unfortunately, I received limited feedback on my proposal regarding ss.com involvement. "  I apologize for my misinterpretation, and I now understand that there wasn't enough feedback from Sioux Sports members.  If UND wasn't interested in a fundraising effort from Sioux Sports, I would stand by my initial post, but I'm glad to hear that wasn't the case.  I didn't know what the circumstances were, correct, and that's why 3 of my 4 sentences were questions.  With potential recruits that may be interested in such a project, it's odd that UND hasn't really done much to hype the project, so sorry for being cynical.  Usually schools have fundraising web pages with renderings and descriptions, or they provide meaningful updates.

    I can confirm from a recruit that was in Grand Forks last weekend for junior day that this was a topic of discussion for potential recruits and him and his family left very impressed with the plans for this and the plans for the west side grand stand that was just torn down.

    Otherwise small mid majors are going to be nothing more than farm system for the larger schools.

    It’s not really about the players.  If it was the NCAA would care more about the 30% plus that don’t end back up on rosters after entering the portal or they would do a better job posting the data.

    He literally did nothing at NDSU.  Seems like a good kid though.

    Started playing football late, has two years eligibility left.  UND runs a different scheme than NDSU.  Maybe it fits his style of play better.  

    Clearly is athletic enough.  What does UND have to lose?

    And you thought the transfer portal was bad at UND!!  Granted, this was due to a coach being fired, but still crazy. Nothing like a bare cupboard for the next coach!!  Gonna be tough to get applicants when you don’t have any players!


    A new coach will fill a roster quickly with the portal.
