    Yep, got it the first few times. Grow up.

    Time For Some New Blood

    Thank you, Kap. That’s at least the third time he posted that. It was uncool the first time.

    Time For Some New Blood

    This is, perhaps, the biggest point of all. We have to assume there is a finite amount of money out there, both in the athletic department and with the boosters. I’d be stunned if money is allocated to buy out Bubba’s contract. Can you imagine the optics of that? They cut multiple sports then buy out three years of the head football coaches contract? It would look awful, and perception counts. I’d rather ask donors for money for Phase 2, increasing the recruiting budget, etc. If Chavez wants to tell some of the assistant coaches to hit the road that’s one thing, but buying out the head coach is too much of a financial commitment for my taste.

    Senior appreciation

    Great to see Fiedler recognized for his contributions to the run game. He was underutilized in the pass game but bought in and was a strong asset in the run game. http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/4526584-und-senior-luke-fiedler-unsung-hero-hawks-strong-run-game

    BTW - I'm not related to Steiner (if it matters). :)

    Senior appreciation

    I have admiration for all players that stick it out for 4-5 years. The time commitment for these kids is jaw dropping, and most of their time is spent working their asses off. The amount of actual fun is so small compared to the amount of time invested. It's a grind. While of course I admire the players that have had the opportunity to play - lots of them have been mentioned in this thread - I especially admire the guys who worked their way up from PWO to become scholarship players such as Palmborg and Aplin (I'm sure there are others; please post them if so). That kind of drive and work ethic will serve them well throughout their lives. I also really admire the players that stick it out even though they rarely play. Everyone rightly talks about Santiago, Tank, Olivera, etc., but imagine putting in that work - that grind, all those hours - without being a consistent contributor? That brings me to Adam Steiner. Despite rarely playing that kid is so admired by his teammates that he was voted a captain. That is an incredible accomplishment and speaks to his character. Every successful program needs kids like him and it is a major loss when they leave. My hat is off to you, Adam Steiner, thank you for your contribution to UND football.

    2018 Season

    Helgren is healthy, it was a coaching decision to start Nate Nyugon.

    UND - Weber State Game Day Thread

    My takeaway as well. I tip my cap to Weber. They are very well coached and are a damned fine football team.

    There is a good chance that last year’s OL class will end up being very good - at least a few of them, anyways.

    I think I remember hearing he's slated for center.

    Weber State

    I understand and agree. That’s why I think it’s best that I not read the posts. People should feel free to post emotion based posts if they want.

    Weber State

    This. It's best for me not to read the game time posts as they are primarily emotion based, not logic or fact based. There are so many uninformed posts.

    Weber State

    That sums it up right there.

    FCS Football Polls

    Great point. This board is exceedingly good at downgrading our own accomplishments - and we do it week after week. It's amazing to see. We hand Montana one of the worst losses in the history of their program (worse than most FBS schools have beaten them) and we don't give ourselves credit. We rush for the second most yards in UND history (in history!!) and we downgrade it by talking about how bad our opponent is - even though we DOUBLED their average rush yards given up. And on and on. I'm mostly entertained by these types of comments, but there are times when I just shake my head at the overall attitude of many of the posters here.
