  1. Deal with the devil (or should I say Nazis?)
  2. I disagree. Although Midcontinent has been a tremendous platform, there is absolutely no question that KVLY would better increase exposure for UND football across the state. In all honesty, exposure via media should be the most important aspect here. Production value means nothing if only limited audiences (people in Grand Forks and Fargo) are watching. To optimize its potential, UND needs to be thinking about exposure to the entire state. Lastly, I ain’t going to read !@#$ on bozoville
  3. Tommy Schuster could make those throws in his sleep. Nothing special here from SDSU - two posts right down the middle of the field. UND did an awful job in coverage on both.
  4. You’re right - I haven’t watched FCS football for the past 10 years. I’ll have to start watchin’ some film, as you say.
  5. Yes, of course; NDSU’s running game is God’s great gift to us all. So spectacular. So unstoppable. Unreal Sam Houston could even think about stopping that nonetheless actually beat the bizons.
  6. I love all your points except the last one. No need to dampen the expectations. UND (and the supporters who pay the bills) needs to have high expectations in order to continue to ascend. The MVFC inaugural season seemed to be the fuel to the fire this spring. Sure, UND may very well lose a game or two next season, but we don’t need to pump the brakes because that is a possibility. It is perfectly normal (and healthy) for a fan base to be upset if they have high expectations. It’s better than the opposite which is apathy. Keep going, keep recruiting, keep developing, keep strivin
  7. Simply put, UND had serviceable play out of a freshman quarterback. He should naturally get better each and every season. I don’t panic when I see the poise and delivery that freshman Tommy Schuster delivered this season. He will get better, especially with better athletes around him. Now, are there better players/QBs out there? Of course. One could always envision a stronger armed, faster, bigger player at the QB position, but it is important to not spend too much finite amount of time on QB when there are definitely bigger holes within UND’s roster. I think it is important that UND
  8. If ... if ... if ... always can play that game. UND is close to being a championship team, but needs better athletes at defensive line, safety, backup running back (behind Otis and Skokna), and receiver (to stretch the field). Offensive line was good but need to take another step to be great. QB is not the issue - UND has chance to have 4 year starting QB that will get better and better each season.
  9. Take out the one longest run from those games by Otis and then what is the ypc average? of course it is less, but also this just shows that Freund was smart enough to not just keep banging his head against the wall when the running game wasn’t working. UND lost to JMU and NDSU pretty convincingly so showcasing these selective stats is silly. And, once again, the biggest difference for UND in these games against top competition was their inability to stop the power running game. JMU and NDSU ran power football right down UND’s throat. Need bigger, tougher inside run defenders, from the
  10. UND’s running game was not consistent against top defensive lines, particularly SDSU, NDSU, and JMU. They largely relied on Otis breaking a big run, but not consistent 4 ypc gains. As I said in my previous post, the offensive line was definitely better this year, but not yet at a championship level. The lack of sacks (which is a great stat) is as much a credit to the offensive line as it is to Tommy Schuster’s individual play and Danny Freund’s play-calling. UND’s offense this spring was heavily built on rollouts and quick passes to avoid sacks, which was fun to see. But when it comes to domin
  11. https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/football/7010989-Commentary-For-UND-football-clearing-the-last-hurdle-remains well written article. UND football is a top 10 program now, that is great. BUT, they are not a top 2 program that can compete for a national championship yet. The 2021 games against JMU and NDSU were lopsided. As far as specific areas where UND needs to improve, it still remains up front. They are better, but not at a championship level. Need better offensive linemen and, most importantly, better defensive linemen. looking forward to fall 2021 and
  12. Well, what the hell?? I mean, I’m sure NDSU submitted a higher bid than UND, but obviously that shouldn’t be just assumed. Little things like this within the expectations of UND football need to change.
  13. Best offensive lineman by far, now gone. Damn Dude blocks opponents into the sideline benches
  14. Well ... yeah. Hope UND gets a second shot at them bozos from Fargo.
  15. Definitely cheering against NDSU as always, but also makes sense in these circumstances. UND has won head-to-head matchup against SDSU, so want NDSU to get their second conference loss. Would place UND ahead of NDSU in standings.
  16. Need to be able to trump that narrative, or UND has no business being a top team. Man up, defend the wide outs, and meet at the quarterback. No reason UND can’t defend the pass this year and beat a team like EWU. In year’s past, it was a problem, but UND’s secondary is a strength now. The weakness for UND’s defense is actually their defensive line. Just look at how NDSU scouted that, brought in the big personnel, and stuffed it down UND’s throat. Still hurts to think about how UND let NDSU’s one sided offense have their way. One thing I know for sure is that EWU won’t be able to punish UND wit
  17. Well this sucks for UND basketball ... at this particular moment. Hopefully Sather can bring in some talented transfers and build a good team, but looks like UND MBB is going to be in a rough spot. DAMN
  18. Obviously this era of the transfer portal is different, and in my opinion, hurts low-major and mid-major division I basketball. With that being said, UND needs to take advantage of the transfer portal themselves and recruit transfers. In this new era, if UND relies solely on high school prospects, I don’t see how they can be successful. All their good high school recruits will just leave after a year or two, so UND needs to be recruiting transfers from the portal themselves.
  19. Cool - thanks for the insight. Wonder when NDSU will get a “real football team”, cause they don’t have one either.
  20. I may sound like a broken record here, but UND needs to be mentally-sound against Youngstown State to get the win. YSU won’t embarrass UND up front like NDSU did, so UND just needs to avoid turnovers and penalties. If UND plays mentally sharp and does that, they should get the win. If UND fails to do that, then I think this team - along with the coaching staff - is just too immature to yet be a top 10 program and the polls will rightfully reflect that. My gut feeling is this program will have their “tail between their legs” and disappoint us. Hope Bubba and the boys pro
  21. In a perfect world where money was not an issue, it would be a slam dunk to build a state-of-the-art on-campus football stadium there for UND. Would really get the community, campus, and beyond excited about football. But Memorial Village is a fine consolation prize. Will help the football program immensely to have dedicated modern football coaches offices, weight rooms, study rooms, meeting rooms, etc. I don’t think some realize just how important modern football facilities (beyond just where you play) are to recruiting student-athletes these days.
