    Had to find some way to pay for the awesome new scoreboard at the Ralph and bigger trophy case to house the Penrose Cup. :wink:

    I thought the cup looked good at Joe Blacks getting filled from the tap.  No need for it to leave there.

    Interesting if a bit misleading.  I see no cause-effect or correlation since there are vast differences in how each college athletic programs evolved.  I just don't buy the theory that Hockey somehow robs Football of resources.  What's more true is that successful programs of any sport generate resources.  What I do think happens is that with a Hockey program that is regularly in the hunt for a National Championship there is much less demand and pressure for Football to be highly successful.   We are much more content to be slightly above average when we are winning elsewhere.  I don't see the slow development of Phase II as a failure of fan support as much as a failure of UND administrators who have alienated many deep pocket doners.  I think if we didn't have idiots in the President's office and ineffective AD's (not necessary the current one) we would see Phase II as complete or near complete.    Bubba's record would not be tolerated at most top programs but he gets a lot of love here.  That's the difference.

    The REA literally gets 52% of football ticket revenue (resources) in addition to getting paid to administer the ticket sales.

    From what I've heard, Memorial is coming down and a new mixed use building is going up.  As part of the bid to get the land that Memorial is on, the company building the mixed use building will be contributing money towards Phase 2.  I don't know much more than that, other than the coaches/team tentatively plans on being housed out of Starcher Hall and Hyslop for a couple years until Phase 2 is complete.  Also as part of of the overall complex, the on campus football stadium is not in the current plans, but the plan is to make the current field at Memorial the home field for Women's Soccer.  Main reason for football to stay at the Alerus is $$$ to build and to run an on campus stadium as opposed to just renting for a short period of time during the football season.  Overall big things are happening and it's exciting to see!!!

    That is exciting.  I assume we would need to keep the current field for practice also.

    I heard the contract has already been signed for tearing Memorial down.

    This isn't getting nearly enough traction. Did this just happen recently?

    I haven’t heard the P2 story - just an announcement soon. 

    I did hear that Memorial is coming down after spring ball.

    Sorry - I thought the Sacramento info was out there - what I meant was it's easy to understand his move. 

    No problem.  The herald article just said they’d posted the job so he must be leaving.  I looked quickly on line and couldn’t find anything else.

    Grand Forks vs Sacramento, if you do not have ND ties it is easy to understand.

    I do have ND ties and understand a lot of stuff but I don't know anything other than he is leaving.

    Is he going to Sacramento?

    Tom Miller is reporting a few more signees today and a couple of international signees.  So I assume a Dutch and a Canadian.

    Surprised no real time signing updates today

    Has there been any chatter on chartered flights out of msp?

    I checked with creative charters a month ago.  They weren’t real motivated cuz it’s so far away but told me to check back. They do a lot of UM fb and basketball trips.  Also did Montana state FB playoff games this fall. 

    i traveled with them to UND fb NC game and they did a great job.

    And you didn't pay a dime for college. So....think you made out ok

    And you know this how?  I did make out OK because of my degree - not because of a fb scholarship.

    I was a walk on who got a partial my last 2 years. 

    I was a local kid and in school to get my degree.  The coaches knew I wasn't going anywhere so they gave the $$ to the guys competing with my at my position.   I'm not sure how many scholarships were available back then - it didn't really apply to me.

    You mean like when people who travel on business?  

    But I never said or inferred that we should have been paid for those hours.  It was just a part of a laundry list showing where ones time is spent as an athlete.

    I'm with you.  I don't think we should have been paid for the hours while traveling.  It is fair to point out that it did make it more difficult to study for the higher level physics, math and engineering classes I was taking.

    It’s gonna be Schuster. He’s got “it.”  

    I agree that Schuster did a good job when he came in against SHSU and was very poised for a true freshman. 

    I realize it is a very small sample size but his game stats don't stand out when compared to our other QBs last year.   Both Ket and Zim had higher QB ratings and completion %.

    In my mind he has an advantage based on his time in the program and the word is he was great in practice but I don't think he is a lock based on last year.



  12. I was an athlete at UND back in the DII days and there wasn't as much oversight or control from the NCAA.

    I figured back then that I put in 40 hours/week during the season and 25-30 hours/week average during the rest of the school year.

    I included all of these things for calculation during the season:

    • practice
    • weight training
    • film study as a team 2 evenings per week
    • Sunday film review of Saturday game plus some light running and stretching
    • 2 lunch meetings/week to review game plan for next game
    • game day - breakfast meeting, pregame and the game itself
    • Travel time when we played an away game

    Do you have comparative assistant salary pool numbers for SDSU, USD, and UNI?

    Don't know but I believe we hired our WR coach for $40k if that is any indicator. 

    Unless we pay more than them it is hard to see anybody making a lateral move to come to GF without some personal tie to the area or the staff.

    Part of this is to keep our expectations on here in check. I haven't the slightest idea who I would hire, however, I won't be surprised if it is an internal promotion with a hire of a new defensive assistant. As far as outside hires, I wouldn't be surprised by Dosch or someone else with familiarity to the staff. It is hard to hire someone to be a coordinator that doesn't have a relationship with the current staff. That being said, don't expect a splashy hire.

    Our low coaching salary pool certainly plays a factor in why the above is true.  Nobody is leaving a comparable job to come to UND unless they have a relationship with the current staff.

    Brewster is back this year since the 2014  when he made the dance. I think he kind of woke up last year that he needed to work at recruiting and if he wanted his contract renewed he had to step up. I think Brewster has the abilities to be very good coach but I also think his ego gets in his way from reaching the next level. I think he thought should have been ready to move to next level but didn't get opportunity which frustrated him and it showed on his coaching and whole program. I also believe he's in that tough stage of life with kids and family so he is torn in different directions. I have been very critical of him in past because I thought he should have been doing better than he was. Also I wonder if last years team of seniors never meshed as team and had been going on for number of years. This was on him because he was one that chose this group and only one he lost was Frieje and nothing improved after that so it had to be in group remaining. This group looks like it could become very good team but South Dakota is monster this year so it will probably playing for one of the other tournaments at year end.

    I haven't followed the program religiously recently but didn't he have a pretty high number of of players transfer out the last few years?

    I heard from a mother of a player on another Big Sky team that the players she knew said he was pretty negative and hard to be around recently.   If that's true I hope he's turned it around.

    -"We were sitting with him and asked, 'What specifically do you want us to pray about on your behalf?' He said, 'I want you to pray for the person who collided with me. I don't want him to feel guilty,'" Katie Pinke said. "And then he said, 'I hope I can meet him someday.”

    Can’t say enough about the character of this young man. It’s obvious why he is one of the vocal leaders on this team.  Not sure what the future holds for Hunter. But one thing I am certain is that through all of this, he is going to be an inspiration and a witness to many. He already is.  

    Praying for Hunter and his family.  He truly is an inspiration.  I hope to meet him someday

    Has UND ever done helmet stickers like Ohio State or Clemson? Would be kind of cool I think. 

    We had these in the early 80's.   They were given out for offense, defense and special teams players of the game.  I don't know if we were allowed to put them on our helmets or not which kind of defeats the purpose of helmet stickers.

    I assume you are referring to their multi-use setter/hitter, Kalli Hegerle. 
    She has decided to leave the program and pursue a lower level program to “have some balance” in her life/career. She leaves on good terms, and 3.9 overall gpa, so no issues, just “lost the passion” and is moving on. Good luck to her!

    best of luck to her.
