    You know who thinks Tommy is a great QB?

    The MVFC coaches, media and SID's who voted him First Team All Conference at the beginning of the season.

    I know they aren't as smart as the "experts" on this board, but they do have a different point of view to consider.

    Think he’ll be anything conference this season? Regression happens.  Needs to do better. Accept it. Still time fortunately. 

    last comment I make on UND’s QB situation at this time: I am NOT anti-Schuster. I want him to do well so und succeeds. He does some things well, like limit turnovers and put the ball in the right place at the right time. With unds offensive ineptitude at times, however, I just have identified things he could do better, that’s all. Here’s to hoping he has a great game versus Missouri State and UND pulls the much needed upset.

    So if we wouldn't have went on it on 4th down from our 20 and won that game, and if our kicker makes a kick the weekend before and we have a winning record, then you are saying nobody on this board should question our QB play then either huh?  Ok.  I do realize Tommy has some limitations, never said he didn't.  Just pointing out that QB U just south of us doesn't seem to have a perfect QB either, regardless of their record. You could say we had a better QB than them last year, not sure.....could maybe say it again this year but I haven't see their transfer kid play more than just against NDSU when he didn't throw the ball at all.  

    If, but, …

    too many hypotheticals for me to take this seriously 

    und is what they are, 3-4. 

    a sneak here and a missed field goal there didn’t lose und those games. Football games are 60 minutes of several plays, and the culmination of everything leads up to wins and losses. The sneak and missed field goals are just plays easily remembered by the masses. Make a few more plays in the fourth quarter or in the redzone and then fourth down and 1 on the 20 or a last second field goal attempt never even need to happen.


    again , und is what their record says they are. Get over it and accept it. Now, look ahead: there are opportunities to improve and get better.

    Vs SIU I saw a different QB come in and spark this team and than a starter make plays and make a game we were out of.  

    Yesterday I saw two QBs do what they each do pretty well.  We have two different offenses that I don’t think the other could run efficiently.  There will likely come a time when one makes a mistake or two and people question or continue to question him but the last game and a three quarters it has worked.  

    UND lost the game vs SIU. No moral victories. 

    UND played well at home vs a poor WIU team yesterday. 

    I hope the system improves and UND can upset Missouri State in Springfield on Saturday, or else playoff chances will be significantly hurt.

    Students harassing the opposing team is a good thing and I'd like to see that come back

    Right? I’d like our entire crowd harassing the opposing team as a better alternative. None of this weak minded only get up on 3rd down bull$%!#. Need to win games and a build a better atmosphere overall first, not be preoccupied regarding student section location.

    Location of the student section is currently correct at the 20/30 yard line.

    Because others do something is never a good reason to do something.... whatever it is in life.

    The location of the student section is irrelevant in regards to attendance. Attendance has always been horseshit once late October/November arises at UND. You know, hockey season starts…

    Having a team that consistently wins would change that to a degree …

    The team 75 miles to the south.....apparently doesn't have a QB.....since they had to bring Cam in. 

    And this isn’t ridiculous posting material on the board? Some on here have lost their mind …

    also, that team is 7-0, not 3-4. Why you would bring this up as a possible point is beyond me.

    We don't have two quarterbacks.  Vaughn just runs our version of the wildcat, with the added ability to throw a little more.  The comment about our system being indirect proof Schuster isn't good enough to get the job done is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen on this forum, and that's saying something.

    Your explanation is the “wildcat”?

    If you think what UND does is commonplace successful offense, you are mistaken. And it hasn’t been successful for UND. Total points scored, turnovers, procedural penalties, and awful red zone efficiency has plagued this offense in 2021

    Some recognize that and have concerns with how the QB position factors into all that. As for ridiculous hyperbole in regards to posting history on this board, that would be you somehow implying the staff doesn’t see limitations with Schuster, but whatever gets your point across I guess. 

    Bottom line, teams don’t run “wildcat” as much as UND does if they know their QB is very good. Why? Because everyone knows you don’t take a good QB off the field. 

    Still obvious that, deep down, UND knows their current QB situation is not great but playing the split of Schuster and “wildcat” Vaughn is the best chance UND has to win right now. Obvious Schuster has several limitations.

    Yup. Holinka isn’t the guy to point fingers at right now. With the exception of the NDSU game the d has gotten better as games go on which is key. They’re the reason we were in those 3 games we lost. The only legit criticism of the d is they often start slow. 

    Agree, Wouldn’t blame UND defense at all. In NDSU game, defense  did tire a bit but that is expected with no offensive help. Und defense was the only reason that game stayed close.

    The D was great.

    Has there ever been a better secondary in UND history? 10 is there best player. Gavlin, Siegel et al shut him down.

    The D line without the Jalens was solid. Seguin, Lennon and McNaboe playing well and the young beef, Orlando and Pierre are stepping up.

    Finally, the one guy who's been solid for 4 years that doesn't get much hype is Larson. Smart, tough, makes plays. May not be a Ratelle, but he's what you want in an ILB.

    And contrary to an off the cuff opinion by someone mid game, Holinka has been great.

    I agree. The UND defense in the Alerus Center is damn near championship quality, if not already. very impressed 

    Just need defense to travel a bit better. The offense and special teams is not at championship caliber yet, though. Hopefully a few more players will get them there soon.

    Nothing like a 34-10 win, dominating in basically every stat possible (600 YARDS OF OFFENSE), to continue the vendetta against Tommy. Never change siouxsports, never change.

    The assessment of him is what it is, regardless of how the entire team does around him. UND’s TEAM is better than WIU’s TEAM, as expected. The player assessment/grade/evaluation, whatever you want to call it, is independent of team result. A “vendetta” only exists in the minds of those who blindly support Bubba and his program.

    The defense had a very nice game today. Caleb Nelson is turning into a player. He had an outstanding game. 
    Im not sure what’s going on with our red zone offense though. Should have hung 50 today easy. That needs to get figured out ASAP. Call me crazy, and I’m usually very much against this sort of thing, but I think the 2 qb stuff works for us. Can’t put my finger on it but it seems to give the o a little extra juice.

    It “works” for UND because it is their identity, it’s what they do via Freund. Now, is it the best way to develop the QB position and bolster the offense? I don’t think so - it’s absent around the country for a reason. I think it hurts leadership and development at QB position, but Freund is the QB coach, so I guess he knows best …


    I still stand by the old adage: if you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterback. Obviously, if you have a good QB, you play him the entire time. Indirect proof neither Schuster or Vaughn is good enough to get the job done.

    I've noticed modern football doesn't really measure the ball anymore.

    The refs just doing the thing they always do.

    Still in the NCAA rule book. UND got screwed by the refs there first of, but also Freund/Bubba/offensive line deserve what happened given they went with 3rd down run/no timeouts and could not get it. 

  13. 4 minutes ago, Siouxperman8 said:

    Bubba really pissed at the referees at end of half. Something with last play/timing.   I think one referee signaled something (maybe first down?).but not sure what happened.  Anybody know 

    Clock can be stopped for measurement, which technically UND deserved on 4th down given how close it was.

    Even so, the run play call on 3rd down is high risk call.

    Also, calling timeout before punt rather than keeping timeout and having 1:00 to go downfield plus time out in pocket is the strategy that came back to bite them.

    Unreal. How do you call a running play in third down there.  Another example of why Bubba is not a legit DI coach. 

    Bubba/Freund combo, if being realistic given Freund is play caller and Bubba obviously voicing his game management strategy to Freund ..

    Gotta admit....Bubba has managed to completely let the air out of the fan interest balloon before the homecoming game.  Drove by Alerus Center today which reminded me there was a game tomorrow.  

    Yeah, failed QB sneak on your own 20 yard line while BEATING your arch rival will do that to you. 

    okay, I’m just piling on at this point, but no doubt Bubba’s teams need to do better for the masses to get behind him. Remember, the people on this board don’t count, we aren’t the “average” fan.

    You think freaking chaves would stay in town for homecoming game instead of adding extra expense going to qunnipic 




    inhad hope for him


    he isn’t on our hood list

    Yeah he’s a hockey guy. UND does that to people. If he had it his way, would probably fold football and focus on just hockey and basketball, like what UN-Omaha did a decade ago. Okay, an over-exaggeration, but gets my point across.
