  1. 4 games allowed including playoffs so if they have no plans to play Schuster it will be a non-issue unless an injury causes UND to need him (dang I feel like it's bad karma even to mention this). As has been said UND wins 7 they belong in the field (SOS, perfect at home are two of the reasons) and could even host a first round and win it (teams in the lower half are all pretty average). Once you get past the first round the going gets tougher (yah I was around for 2016 so no need to bring that up).
  2. There was an explanation as to why they just don't use Massey similar to Pairwise - something about not enough games to be a true rating tool?
  3. #9 Illinois State beat a terrible Missouri State by 5 and dropped two spots. Northern Iowa got crushed and did not move.

    It's what they do year in and year out.
  5. Waiting for FCS pundents to diss Illinois state for only beating Missouri State by one score.

    Look at the resumes of the teams between 16-24, they all have bad losses. We finish 7-4 we belong.

    If we finish 7-4 we deserve to be in, #12-24 are all about equal on any given Saturday.
  8. So if attendance drops on in what is basically a play off game we can stop with the "winning will fix attendance" and "band wagon fans will come when games matter" and accept that dwindling attendance is seasonal and a matonal trend.

    What ever happened to Izzy?
  10. I''ll assume that current players are also involved in the recruiting process and can share their perspective on after-thought PWO offers that are just trying to back fill their recruiting class vs a school that was on them early and thought highly of them, followed them and came to the table first with a scholarship for a quality education.

    Much of what he says supports that UND got the shaft in 2015.

    How about we discuss "What if" we win out - who might we host? Pretty sure the coaching staff works their ass off every week to win the game - they don't need to have someone tell them their job is on the line.
  13. There is no accountability when it comes to the polls and that is the way they like it.
  14. We were in the exact same position last year and did not get it done. It hasn't been mentioned since it seems it's easier for some to focus on negativity but our new OC and his system is looking really good for a first year. It's fun to watch a game when you know something unexpected could happen on offense. I want to feel like when we win out and finish 7-4 with our schedule that will be enough - but past history has shown that the system for making the choices in a closed room and the politics that are involved makes me hesitant.
  15. "you've done nothing previous years to build your brand" is a cop-out on laziness on the part of pollsters. If they don't have time to do the job they shouldn't be part of the weekly poll - worse yet is the Coach's Poll - that is probably done by an intern every week as reflected by how out touch it is with what is happening on the field.

    Glad it wasn't one of us that suggested "running up the score"/ 1. Just win the game 2. UND is expected to win over 2 teams with 2 wins on the year so there will be no notice of the score margin (unless it can be used against us). If we win out our pedigree on SOS will be just fine.

    UND: at 7-4 NCAA Committee behind a closed door: hold our beers

    How about the clueless who vote in polls and mail it in without research or vote based on regional agendas? We will be 7-4 at year end and 3 of our 4 losses will be against ranked teams (E W will win out and crack the poll because of their name.)

    How does the bar keep getting moved on winning "big games" - UND (notice the capital letters used by those that respect the Flagship) has beaten three teams this year that were ranked in the top 24 - those who can't find "big game" wins aren't looking.

    Anyone who spells UND lowercase is hiding something.

    Pretty sure we proved where we belong. Lets win out.
  22. There would be if price was more family friendly.

    The only reason we are "sweating' is because it was proven in 2017 that the system used to make decisions on who is in who is out is inconsistent and heavily weighted by the decision makers in the room. There was national discussion on how a 7-4 UND team with an FCS win and a 3 game winning streak at the end of the season was left out over a 6-5 team. We were not the only ones questioning how that happened. Now it's being thrown out that SDSU and UNI "Haven't had the chance to play anyone difficult because of their schedule", but in 2017 some of the "Never UND" discussion included that our schedule was weak - well it's not weak this year so we are "sweating" because if we finish 7-4 they won't be able to say we had a weak schedule but history shows they like to move the bar behind closed doors. If we finish 7-4 and UND is not chosen the system is a joke, if we finish 6-5 we do not deserve to be in (but if 6-5 becomes the bar for the last in we should be considered over an east coast patsy - but that won't happen so we need to just get it done). Side note: perhaps having Chaves on our team could make a difference this year.
  24. Hope some one close to him with his best long-term interest at heart talks to him.

    He could but we know how the NCAA treats anything related to UND, we are a mosquito to them.
