    2018-19 Season

    Adidas screwed up. New jerseys are on order. A bit ironic since Jones was one of the coaches who didn't want to switch to adidas and then this.

    UND (2-0) @ #10 Kentucky (1-1) 11/14 8 pm

    Can't have that many turnovers against a team like Kentucky, but was probably expected from such an inexperienced team. They don't anyone near this level on their schedule the rest of the year, so learn from it and move on. Cautiously optimistic about what some of the new players showed last night, could be a fun year albeit with some ups and downs.

    Filling the Ralph

    Some interesting ideas but why would the REA help facilitate the resale of tickets they have already gotten paid for (and passing the money on to others) instead of the empty seats that haven't been bought yet? Ticket holders can already resell tickets on Ticketmaster very easily, however there is a floor on what those tickets can be listed for, which is the equivalent of face value on unsold tickets. You aren't going to get much closer than that.

    2019 WEST REGIONAL - SCHEEL'S ARENA

    I'm not arguing the cycle of a big event, which is universal for pretty much anything. What I'm pointing out is the drop-off isn't going to be like Vegas as the event gets closer. There isn't a huge upfront cost/time commitment for something like Fargo when people can go on an hour notice vs. a few weeks notice for something like Vegas, meaning the demand from buyers doesn't drop as much and keeps the prices up. I watched plenty of tickets being sold for well over face value the day of the regionals in Fargo, both times. I also helped facilitate getting people tickets at near face value from other people I knew that would have went for more on Craigslist or Stubhub if there wasn't a mutual person involved. Yes, there will be tickets resold near face value but my point is, either be prepared to watch it on TV or pay that minimum dollar, there won't be a ton of panic sellers when the demand is that high and there isn't a barrier to people going on a short notice.

    2019 WEST REGIONAL - SCHEEL'S ARENA

    I agree with the main point but a regional in Fargo is a bit different. The demand will continue to be there as there is minimal travel involved for the large majority of the fan base, so there isn't an upfront cost that locks them in to going or not. The rink being so small suppresses supply significantly. The only thing holding it back is the "unknown" of UND not making it which is fresh in people's mind, especially when a good portion of people ended up eating tickets for Sioux Falls last year.

    And after watching UNI vs Montana, I don't think they'd win more than maybe 4 games in the Big Sky.... Fun when you can just base everything off one early season game with no chance of being proven wrong isn't it?

    Definitely not saying things can't improve or there isn't reason for frustration but I've noticed a lot of the narratives presented as fact seem to be a bit more of revisionist history rather than things that are backed up by actual stats.

    Cool story. Can't wait to have your support on why they deserve it.

    I agree that UND should utilize their TE's and RB's more than they do, but for comparison, NDSU has completed 20 passes to their TE's and 25 to their RB's. UND has completed 16 and 19 respectively, but that doesn't include McKinney's 7 receptions, some of which have came out of the backfield where I'd compare his usage to Ty Brooks from NDSU. I agree you need to develop depth, but the cluster injuries at WR have been a bit crazy, you can only play so many WR's at a time to get them experience. Tough to expect a situation where you're missing your top 4 during a game, your fifth guy has played more RB than WR, the sixth guy is coming back from a 2 year injury and your seventh guy has been dinged up more than he hasn't while he's been on campus and hasn't had a chance to get many reps. Wanzek being back helps but you're still missing numbers 2-4 and hoping for the best. Stanley making the recovery he has

    Being a leader off the field doesn't mean you're a starter on the field. Adam Stiner is also a captain and he's a back-up as well. Talk to anyone who watched camp and practice and the choice on who QB1 should have been and continue to be is obvious and it isn't really that close despite some recent struggles. The fact that Rudy claimed it was an "open competition" as long as he did was more of surprise than who was actually chosen but I'm hoping it was done to prevent complacency. Some of the issues at QB have been UND missing it's top receivers and replacing them with guys who haven't had much for reps at all and the line not playing as well as they were the first half of the year, which has meant that TE's and RB's have had to stay in and block more. Players are starting to get wore down from more reps than they are used to and also playing dinged up. Not an excuse, just a reality and need to find a way to work through it.

    The changing narrative has me confused what I'm supposed to think about Montana. In 2016 the narrative was that UND was "lucky" to not have them on the schedule. Montana ended the season at 6-5 (including a win over UNI) and 3-5 conference record. In 2018, they will finish at 7-4 or 6-5 (including a win over UNI) and either 5-3 or 4-4 in conference play but somehow they aren't even considered a quality team. No sort of double standard going on there...

    Montana's new coach reminds me alot of one of their old coaches.

    Agree 1000%. My post was made in jest. After sitting through the AD interviews, Mike was likely a close second, just didn't have quite the experience he needed. He's working very closely with Chaves on HPC Pt. II which is Priority 1 and I think Mike will be a huge asset on that front.

    I mean, you literally said it was a tie and his connections were simply the only tie-breaker. That's the issue I had with your statement, inferring that he didn't actually win the job, he just got it by default, which isn't accurate. That was directed at a specific poster, not you.

    UND is obviously only capable at hiring from within the family instead of the best candidate. No other way to explain Mike Mannausa as the new athletic director.
