    Kett against UNA I felt was a protest game. It was plain to see a good portion of the offense was flat out done with the garbage that Rudy was having them run. That's how it felt to me outside of a couple players (seniors mostly) that gave everything they had because it was their last chance.

    I agree, let's not derail another thread with useless bison nonsense. If they want to brag about whatever it is they want to brag about, they can keep it to their own forum.

    As far as dropdown or transfer QB's for next year, this year's offense will go a long ways in getting some of these guys to come in. If Freund's offense does well and is as dynamic as advertised, it should look appealing to many a QB looking for a change.

    Likely Freund's call and that's why they brought in the particular o-line coach that they did.
  6. Knew someone on that committee and basically what Kennedy sold to the committee was not what we got once he got the job. The person I know was not very happy about things after the fact. Hopefully UND can get a better person this go around.

    2019 Season

    Many of the personnel issues that most people took issue with on here were a product of the offensive coordinator and his blunders. Yes, he was a Bubba hire and by no means should Bubba be given a pass for that because frankly it was a terrible hire from the start. Unfortunately, Rudolph and his offense were bailed out by the fact we hit home runs recruiting Santiago and Oliviera. Without them the offense is nowhere near as productive early on and the lack of creativity and imbalance in playcalling gets exposed earlier. That first year where teams didn't have game film on the offense was an aberration that was quickly rectified, and the only reason there was any continuing success was thanks to phenomenal talent. The real evaluation has to start here with offensive coordinator number 2. Freund I believe is capable, I think he's open-minded enough to not be stuck to a single style or philosophy and he's young enough to be more aware of what is successful in modern collegiate offenses. Whether that translates to successful playcalling and coaching is yet to be seen but I have hopes. The big knock on Bubba aside from the initial hire and why I think he's still somewhat on the hot seat is the fact that he did not make the change from Rudoph earlier, at minimum he should have been gone prior to last season. If Freund is successful that's just going to make that error loom bigger. If Freund has success with the current roster everyone will come back and say, "well what if he would have had a full year with Santiago and Oliviera?" which unfortunately can only reflect poorly on Bubba.
  8. An outside shot is something that can be developed during his time in college. What I like is the athleticism and ability to finish at the rim. Being able to drive and penetrate is something that can only help the rest of the team by breaking down defenses and opening shots elsewhere.

    2020 FB Recruiting

    Yeah, that's understandable and sometimes hard to judge. That makes me think of Jordy Nelson, tall receiver with sneaky speed. Even NFL defenders say he doesn't really look all that fast and then he's running by them. Hopefully that can be the case with this kid.

    2020 FB Recruiting

    I think it depends on his speed, if he has the speed to play outside then keep him at WR as a match-up nightmare.

    2019 Season

    Here's something I'm not quite understanding from some folks on this board, why is everyone not talking about JJ being the #1 back going into this season? Why are people slotting McKinney there? JJ is a very talented runner with a big frame, he proved he has the ability to break away at times, and he had success even against stacked fronts of the previous offense. To me, JJ is the starter going in. Gordon is the second guy and will split the most carries, I don't see him struggling at all transitioning after a single season and with everyone going into a new offense, that shouldn't be an issue. McKinney will be brought in as RB in certain formations and likely on 3rd downs as an option out of the backfield. We should be fine at RB this year barring injury.

    I'm not terribly concerned with RB depth for this year. JJ is rock solid (although an injury risk given his running style), but Gordon is more than capable for a high number of carries. Look at what he did a couple years ago as a third fiddle to Oliviera and Santiago, he certainly showed flashes of brilliance in limited carries. With the spread offense we'll be running, McKinney is more than capable at sliding in and taking snaps. Would it have been nice to have Weah and his skill touching the ball? Definitely, but by no means are the cupboards bare without him. Hopefully he gets his head on right, buries his nose in the books, and makes use of his opportunity at school to enable him to come back next season to contribute.
  13. Boggles my mind that Thornton can sit there beating on Brubauerer, starts a scrum and yet the sharks get a power play out of it. Sharks are playing pretty dirty tonight and officials are letting them get away with it.
  14. He still has time to grow, and besides, if he has skill he can make it despite size. Look at what Grimaldi has accomplished.

    Spring Ball

    To me, the model that we need to look at is Oklahoma. You look at that offense and you notice just how much they run. Yes, they are known for passing the ball but of course you're going to throw when you have the likes of Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray but when that offense was humming it was because the run game was constantly attacking the defense. Defenses would be forced to bring bodies into the box and isolate defensive backs in one on one coverage which is when the ball goes over the top and boom, big play.
