2016 Fall Camp

Recommended Posts

I would like to add that I thought toivonen looks like real deal.  Each of the qbs seem to look his way first and most often.  Indication that they are comfortable with him. Not a burner but a nice frame true fresh that looks willing to learn and puts in max effort every play. Great possession wr.

Great addition

Thanks for the great reports as well.  It's nice that our OL gets to go up against such a strong DL and strong defense overall.  It sounds like we had some success running the ball I think right?  That bodes well because if we can run some on our defense we should be able to run on almost anybody. In Bubba's interview he said he wasn't happy with the Defense in the goal line situations, which means the offense must have executed well at the goal line which is important obviously.  We need TD's not field goals. I'd be more worried if he said the offense was inept at the goal line, because I know the defense will end up being solid.  Sounds like a fair amount of penalties and mental mistakes, hopefully they should be able to get that cleaned up by the Stony Brook game.  Coe sounds good.....but I'm a little fearful we'll be 5 games into the season and having multiple bad snaps losing yards and killing drives like two years ago.  Hopefully he can nail down the snap before week one. It's hard to imagine that both Santiago and Oliviera better than last year.  I mean it makes sense that they are because they were true freshman, but man it's crazy that they are better than last year.....they are going to be really fun to watch for another 3 years, plus we have Nevermann this year.  Has to be our deepest quality backfield ever?

Race between Bartels and Heidlebaugh is obviously a close one; however, I'd guess Heidlebaugh wins it based on him being a bit more athletic than Bartels. 

All 4 running backs are very capable, with John and Brady being a super tandem. Hopefully they stay healthly all year!

The WR spot is surprisingly coming along. Both scholarship true freshmen look quite good and FBS transfer Demun Mercer will be capable on the field too. Throw in the incumbents Clive and Stanley and you have a nice corps for Studsrud.

Cloyd will be an unreal TE moving forward. He will play a lot this year. As others have mentioned, both him and Pinke will be a great tandem moving forward. The depth at TE and FB is really quite good. 

Cant have any injuries to the OL. Right now, starting 5 offensive linemen are going to be road graders. They will move people and the drop off will be minimal to last year's line IF there are no injuries or changes to current starting 5 (Stockwell, Bell, Coe, Taylor, Cox). 

Defensive line and linebackers will be just fine. As everyone knows, DB is where questions lie. Have to get Harris and Tyus Carter healthy and back at CB. Of course, Reyes needs to stay healthy all year - tremendous tremendous player. Arnell and Palmborg both capable at other safety spot. Chris Carter can get the job done as a third or forth corner along with Hunt. I do not think either true freshman corner should be on the field this year; if Holm or Randolph are playing, that does not bode well for the pass defense. Need to have the four "veteran" corners (Hunt only spring ball) healthy and playing! 

Specialists appear to be the same as 2014: Taubenheim and Bolduc.

Same old narrative continues, though: QB, OL, and DBs need to all stay healthy all year and then UND is looking very good. 

Go Hawks!

I will be in town tomorrow morning and I was looking check out a football practice, is it open to the public? If so, are the bleachers open on the west side?

Something like Brad Miller time would be great.   Zero production cost.  Give the players a video camera and have an intern edit the footage.  Solves the "not enough resources" problem.

That video is great. Needs a little sound tweaking but would love some back stories into the world of some of these guys just like TTD with hockey. Keep it going!

If our secondary can't stop a true walk on freshman QB to a true walk on freshman WR........god help us against Bowling Green :)  Granted Reyes and some other starters may not have been in during some of those plays......but our secondary still seems to be a big concern.  Thanks goodness we don't play Montana this year.  Hopefully they can get it cleaned up some, as well as the snap.  Odds are looking good that we will have a couple bad snaps in the first few games.  Hopefully he is short arming them and not sailing them over the QB's head so that in addition to losing a down.....we don't also lose 15 yards.    Thanks for the report though Teeder!

Yes, it was a lot of second and third stringers out there today on D, not totally, but let's just say that youth was well represented. :)
