Even though the debacle at the end of the year last year happened, and how frustrating it was to watch......I'm SO glad we laid an egg at the end of the year. If we would have just won one of those games we would have been in playoffs and I'd guess Rudy is still calling plays for us. We were never going to be more than maybe a one win playoff team with him. I waited for about 4-5 years for UND to play at NAU again since we didn't play them at NAU since 2013 I think. Had looked forward to that game for so long and being able to see the team in person again. Was such an ugly and embarrassment of a game, but I am now thankful for it.
Last year we were somewhat excited because we thought we had a QB who could throw the deep ball better, it gave us a glimmer of hope for the offense. Well this year we have some real reason to have some hope for our offense and almost the entire offense returning. Most of the defense is returning, and we just seem to have better depth at almost every position than we've had in a while, minus NG. Danny still has to prove himself as OC, but I certainly think there is reason for hope. I'm going to wear my Kelly Green glasses all off season because I have to have hope for something better than what was, otherwise there is no point. We do have a very tough schedule next year though and who knows we may only go .500, but I'm going to be excited for a few months while I can.
