  1. So how is the OL going to be this year, better, the same, not quite as good? Losing 3 starters from regular season....seems like every season it goes back to how the OL does. Seems like we've got some decent younger guys, hopefully they are ready to step up! Is it August yet??
  2. Watched the first 4 1/2 minutes, yeah pretty boring as he is mostly blocking. He does seem to stay with his blocks though. He did though as a Junior in HS have as many receptions as our leading TE last year though (7), so there is that. He probably didn't get a lot of opportunities, but since coaches saw him in person...I'll give them benefit if the doubt in that they saw something. We keep waiting to have a breakout at TE with a huge year and seem to have had a few somewhat highly touted TE's in the past few years. However when I look back we haven't had a TE with more than 10 receptions in a season since 2017 (unless I missed something), I only looked back that far. As much as we all want more production out of the TE, just doesn't seem like it's ever going to happen in our current offense, even with Danny as OC. Cloyd had 147 yards for the 2017 season, and since then we haven't had a TE with over 100 yards in a season. 15 receptions by a single TE in a season would be a monster year given UND's track record with that position, unfortunately.
  3. It sure would be nice to have him at 100% this season to have another arrow in the quiver on offense. If he is not able to go this fall, hopefully Vaughn has improved where they can put him in the Wildcat and make a few throws to keep the defense somewhat honest when he goes in.
  4. I was surprised how many reps he got starting with the very first game given Haas was ahead of him. Pretty sure he was in the second defensive series of the season and seemed to be almost alternating series with Haas from the very first game, which says a lot since Haas is a senior. Great 2 deep out OLB this year that is for sure!
  5. So last year Weah burst onto the National FCS scene, and Schuster in a sense did as well as a freshman QB. Both had as good of or better years that we expected, even though we expected a lot of them going into the year. Belquist was probably the biggest surprise of last year, I don't think anybody thought he would have the production he had. So my question is, who or whom will be the player(s) that will take that leap this fall and become a much bigger contributor than they had in the past?
  6. Win or lose, you have to respect and appreciate the hard work and commitment these young men put in to be in top physical shape to get out on the field and compete. Good luck Jordan, hopefully you complete the comeback and have great year and stay injury free the rest of the way!
  7. Given his dad played for SU and his mom went to SU also, I would be a little surprised if we got him.....but would love it if we did!
  8. Does Hegerle have an offer from NDSU?
  9. Unfortunately we won't be able to give UNI another quality loss this year since they aren't on our schedule. Will be another tough task this year to gain credibility without being able to play Montana or UNI
  10. Herder has them at #6. Beating Weber and then coming very close to beating SDSU at home, they were on a roll at the end of the year so I can't complain too much about it. It will all play out on the field. Big 1st half of the season for us this year with the FBS game, then NDSU home early, USD on road, then SIU on the road. We'll have a pretty good idea by October 16th where we stand. Playing SDSU the last game of the year reminds me a little of when we always played NDSU the last game of the year, will be a big game. https://herosports.com/fcs-football-top-25-herder-preseason-bzbz/
  11. I hope him and Tommy work on the deep ball in the off season too. Seems like a couple of times they weren't quite on the same page....Maag was running a deep route but ran kind of across the field...and Tommy threw it more down field. The deep ball in general needs some work as we all know.
  12. Would be interesting if we got Hegerle since his dad played for NDSU. Unfortunately his dad tracked down and prevented a game winning/tieing TD in the '91 game in Fargo on a 4th down with less than a minute to play, he had some speed. Graduated HS with his mom, she was a track star in HS and great gymnast. Hegerly play in '91:
  13. I would think Orlando would get some reps next year given his size and his presumed athleticism being a state champion wrestler. Hopefully all of the NG's will be healthy at the end of fall camp so they can rotate and totally get after it when they are in there.
  14. Yes I'm sure there are. I know I followed as a guest for a while before creating an account and actually started posting. The more comments the better!
  15. Doesn't that seem kinda small/light for a safety?
  16. I really don't understand how Delaware comes in at #4. SDSU demolished them. We ended the year #6, huge step in the right direction. We should start out in the Top 10 this fall, and as we know it actually is important where you start out. A lot easier to get a seed if you start out in the top 10. https://theanalyst.com/na/2021/05/sam-houston-unanimous-no-1-in-final-stats-perform-fcs-top-25/?fbclid=IwAR0CRvr65t8XvoBdj9sHmS-cDFH23WAtGN85Bp3hGWa4d6hlZGPNocq78YY
  17. I agree. However if you are on statewide tv every week, the casual ND person would get exposed to it without having to go search it out. That is part of the reason the whole state of ND supports NDSU football so much. Obviously winning is a big part of that, but easy access for games helps and just flipping on tv and it's on. Not saying I want that though, because Midco broadcast is so much better.
  18. The first clip you posted the ball was 48 yards in the air the second clip was around 49. Check the flea flicker to Belquist, Tommy's pass was 47 yards in the air. I don't see the big difference. I do think their QB does have a little stronger arm though, and he is a better runner.....which does give him an edge. SDSU got a really good one, they are in good hands for the next 4 years. I have seen Tommy make some perfectly placed throws though into some small windows. Tommy has to be the most Productive/Successful freshman QB since probably Klancher?
  19. They always seem to be open, they are good. Likely partially due to good play design and calling though too.
  20. No doubt. Not sure I've ever seen such a turnaround in 5-7 minutes before, crazy. I guess the JMU coach may not be able to whine about not being the #1 seed after today. Still lots of time yet though.
  21. Wow crazy comeback right now....Sam Houston in the lead. JMU needs to get some momentum back.
  22. Also the guy was wide open by 5 yards.....and QB severely under threw him so he had to slow down and got caught after catching the ball. Probably would have been easy TD if he hit him somewhat in stride. Not sure how JMU is winning with this guy under center
  23. I agree with you that we need a better deep passing threat to open things up. But we've seen Tommy throw the ball 40 yards down field and hit guys almost perfectly in stride. The Maag double move and Belquiest flea flicker play against Missouri state you referenced, even though in your opinion you thought they were poor throws. I'm no QB expert but if you are throwing a go route velocity doesn't matter as much, better to throw a rainbow like Jeff Blake of Cincy used to do so it drops right in on the guy. Stronger arm is more important when throwing mid or deep over the middle and you have to whiz it in to fit into a tight window. Tommy may not be able to throw the deep go route ball 55 plus yards in the air accurately, but I think he can throw it 40-45 accurately. That said him and the WR's do need to work on that more in off season and fall camp, it's definitely not their strong suit. And remember the double move (gadget play as you call it) against Missouri state.....that you criticized he didn't hit perfectly in stride, take a look at the double move pass JMU ran on us and completed and their QB definitely under threw the guy who was probably more open than Maag. Their WR totally had to slow down so much so we ended up tackling him. Tommy's throw on that exacts same play was FAR superior as a freshman, compared to JMU senior QB. Also, I'm curious if JMU fans thought their double move was a gadget play. I haven't watched the game thinking specifically about this but I'm thinking Tommy could have made most or all of the throws the JMU QB made in that game. We lucked out on one 3rd down when it was 3rd and 4 or something like that and JMU was in our territory, their QB threw out to the left for a WR screen type of throw as the other WR was blocking, totally over threw the guy, if he would have been on the money it would have been a first down. I've seen Tommy look off safeties and/or gone to other than his first read. As a young QB though, many times you are going to go to that first read. At least he has looked off the safety when doing it at times. Tommy perhaps should have gone to Maag in the play you highlighted, but i've also seen many a NFL QB miss a guy that was wide open for a TD while they threw it to another WR. Hopefully Quincy will continue to improve to push Tommy going into next fall. Hopefully we can get some games next fall where Quincy gets in early due to us having a lead and he can actually run the offense and we can see what he can do a bit more. It will be nice to have Boltmann hopefully back this fall as well. It's nice having those guys come in as a change of pace to mix it up. I think Danny planned on expanding Boltmann's play package more this year getting him some passes in so defenses would have to respect the pass at least a little when he is in. I would think Quincy's play package would expand some next year too if he is not the starter but just comes in now and then. At least Danny is smart and is going to try and do whatever it takes to win, and I certainly have more confidence in his decision to play or not play guys than before.
  24. Well at least we still know it’s true......that you could say something about NDSU in the middle of a forest.....and within minutes an NDSU fan would pop out of nowhere to set the record straight. God forbid NDSU doesn’t win the championship next year either, the NDSU police will be out in even more full force to protect and make sure not one slightly negative comment be uttered about their Bison.
  25. Here is the longer version of the highlights.
