    2018 Season

    Agree. As we've seen at times, Santiago or Olivera do not need very must space at the line to break off a long run. Sometimes just one more battle won by an O-lineman would result in a big play. Rudolph does get that. So does Bubba, who obviously sets up the offensive attack along with Rudolph. If John breaks off a run for 40 yards people will say "great call". If he's stuffed at the line, people will say Rudolph can't call a game. But, I think it's all part of Bubba's philosophy, challenging the offense to be a dominant running team and keep the clock running. I liked Keaton, but at times his accuracy drove me crazy. The Bubba-Rudolph's philosophy seems to be to avoid the 45 seconds drive after a couple of incomplete passes. I think we have some nice QB options heading into the fall and because of that we're going to see the RBs have a great year. Good QB play can make an average line look better and vice versa and that's going to help the run game. I want to believe the offense takes a big step this year. I can't wait.

    How about The Rocket. The Maurice Richard story, pretty good historical account of what he went through.

    Tough to really know based on the Morris ladies. Melissa, the twin that played, has a shooter's mentality and played under control. She will play a lot as a solid guard, maybe start. Didn't hear why her sister Megan didn't play, she was in street clothes at the end of the bench. Moton from W. Fargo plays very strong and should help with depth inside. Leet the 6'5" freshman looks like she will be able to contribute in a year or 2. Faith Dooley at 6'3" is on the roster and that should help after VB, listed as a Junior. Freshman Julia Fleecs moves real well at 6'2". I think come conference time, they should be very tough inside.

    Local WDAZ news broadcasts

    Reggie been gone for a couple years, still in town. I know he runs camera for Midco, not sure what else. His wife, Stacie, is the anchor on WDAZ.

    Local WDAZ news broadcasts

    Per a recently retired employee, they are carrying WDAY newscasts Dec 24th thru Jan 8th. Then back to the 10 per week locally. Also, its the first time in decades that DAZ has neither a local Station Manager or a local News Director. Not looking good.

    I was there too. Drove in 25 miles on ice to get there. I remember they introduced the Livingston team at the Friday night hockey game, the night before. We all kind of chuckled thinking they weren't going to be able to handle the cold the next day. But they did. I'm glad we'll be inside on Saturday

    UND vs Crown (11/11 1 PM)

    Talked to a parent at the game. Shanks not dressing was for missing class, he thought that might be the reason for at least some of the others also, but wasnt sure. 72-33 UND with 12 minutes to go

    2016 Attendance

    I absolutely hear what you're saying. But, my point is that an equal amount of folks with young kids would say similar things about a 4 pm or 7 pm start. There are probably just as many folks who don't want to get their kids home too late at night and may skip the late game. I also wonder what a 4 or 7 pm start on a beautiful fall day would do for the UND student attendance. But, I'm probably in a different situation having attended my first UND football games in the early 60's. 4 pm is almost time for the early bird supper specials and 7 pm is almost bedtime.

    I don't think the start time will affect tailgating in any way. You could have midnight games and the same folks will be out there hours before. If you want to tailgate, you find a way to make it. I bet most folks that currently come 30 to 90 minutes before a 1 pm start will still do that for a 2:30, 4:00 or 7 pm game. Any people that can't make 1:00 pm games due to work or other conflicts will be offset by people working later in the day or having evening conflicts and being unable to make a 4 pm or 7 pm game. For 15 years, I have about a 5 hour round trip for games and I preferred the early start. I did miss an evening games over that time, not wanting to stay over or get home past midnight. I think the worst thing UND can do is have 3 different start times for the 5 or 6 home games in a season. Like Bubba, I prefer Saturday afternoon football
