  1. It's just hard to fathom what could have been if he had only stayed those last 2 years.
  2. Some days I wonder the same thing. Mainly that I just don't remember the last minute commits being over the top guys. But yes, Case was an early commit and left and that burns in my mind more than anything that we lost him.
  3. I think the Bison have the "U". It's penned up in the sheep barn with all the other ewes.
  4. What I remember most about last December was the stud QB that jumped ship.
  5. So we wait until the other top schools cheery pick the best players and they we settle for recruits? I sure hope not. Until the last few days our recruiting has been top notch. Hurts to lose a couple of great possibilities but I think we've taken a positive step. We just need to battle for the rest and hopefully Bubba can pull off a few miracles. I sure wish we'd beat the XDSU's on a few boys though.
  6. Sounds good to me. Keep it up.

    Let me guess where. UND, as in University of Notre Dame?

    I wonder the same thing. We should have found a cup cake to schedule for a win. A bye isn't going to get us anything. I'm still think we can pull off 7 wins but it sure would have been nice to go 8-4. At any rate, as others said, no playoffs, no Bubba. I really felt earlier that no PLAYOFF WIN this year, no Bubba. He's had plenty of time to get things done and it's not happening. So why didn't we schedule a twelfth game? No one available?
  9. Klein sounds like a hell of a commit for us. Now I just hope he signs with us in 6 months, can't let someone poach him.

    This is why I'm not impressed with Bubba recruiting these high risk guys like Grady and Weah. We need guys that will be here 5 years.
  11. From the rumors I've heard is that the gobc don't like zeros.
  12. I have always heard they wanted him badly before he went to the Gophs but told him that ship sailed when he was looking to transfer. I'm not saying there isn't an NDSU spin on this, but given the large number of RB's they had plus their dislike for transfers, I'm inclined to think they weren't too interested. Maybe someone from the Bison camp will weigh in on this.
  13. And Grady was a bust really. Good player but still never worked out and really wasn't worth the trouble. Johannesson also is good but not quite I had hoped for either, but it could be the way he was used, and I don't think NDSU wanted him after he went to Gophers so not really someone we stole from the Bison unfortunately. I don't have the answer to what it takes for good recruiting, but Bubba needs to keep trying other things. He doesn't seem to have a lot success he can hang is hat on.
  14. Last year we had a bunch commit the last half of July. We can probably expect a couple sooner, or at least I sure hope so.
  15. I would support HH to run UND. She's proven she can be diplomatic about things, she's a Democrat who has had a fair amount of success in a Republican state so you know she can at least build support where it's needed.
  16. I was glad when Kuppy left and I'm glad now. Main objective going forward is going to be that we don't pull a CU and turn our hiring process into a Gong Show event. Don't assume that someone can't find a way to totally screw up who we get.
  17. The problem with Schafer, assuming Kennedy actually leaves, is he's just another politician. We need someone who is more academic then political.
  18. Yepper. Final numbers posted. I too appreciate the work that Jim and others do on this. Thanks a bunch guys.
  19. Duluth just seemed to get stronger at the end.
  20. Deepest condolences to the family. I never met the man but certainly enjoyed his posts here.
  21. My gut feeling is Duluth over Denver for the title.
  22. I can already hear the brackets busting.

    I agree completely on recruiting being a train wreck, but I put some of the blame a little higher up the food chain than Rudy.
  24. So we should be pacified to never win anything again until the rest of college hockey catches up and wins one? OKAAAY.
