Schweigert said he would like to move as quickly as possible to fill these roles, adding he’s open to a change in offensive philosophy.

Well that's interesting.....

I guess Bubba finally grew tired of a run off tackle, followed by a pitch out wide, followed by Kett in shotgun falling to the ground.

Schweigert said he made the coaching staff decisions on his own and not under the directive of first-year athletic director Bill Chaves.

Schweigert said he would like to move as quickly as possible to fill these roles, adding he’s open to a change in offensive philosophy.

“We’ll see,” Schweigert said when asked if he wants to stay with a run-heavy offensive style. “We just want to move the football consistently. I think those decisions need to be made as we talk to potential candidates.”

Would rather have seen Kostich and Baukol go before Knauf.......

I really can't believe Kostich isn't the first guy gone.......

I think the correct call was made today.  Special teams is more than a punt formation, which needs to changed by the way.  Kostich brings a lot to the table.  I think the kicker and punter are better next year and that will help, too.  If we ever used TEs maybe we could evaluate him better next year.

there was progression throughout the year, I thought.  From what I've read on here, Kostich really connects with the players and is a good recruiter.  Probably what saved him.

Wasn't there a song that went "2 out of 3 ain't bad"?

Why does S&C receive so little attention in all of this?  There seems to be very little physical development of players after they arrive.

As a season ticket holder for 20+ years the not going for it on 4th and 2 sealed the deal for me on my decision not renew my tickets. These coaching decisions/changes aren't changing that. One more year as an independent and one year in the Valley then NDSU comes to the Alerus in 2021. If this program isn't still a total s** show after the 2020 season I'll revisit getting season tickets again......plus it's not like I can't get tickets at walk up for any game.

Good points. I'm sure the TEs will be used more; they can't be used less.

This.....^^^

Some people here are as nutless as Bubba.

If this comment is directed at me i will admit I had zero confidence in our offense getting more than ten yards there.  I had more faith in our punter getting off a better punt and pinning them inside the 10, which he didn’t do either.

These were the correct decisions. I think Bubba and Schmidt can build a championship defense. The offense, with QB and offensive line being the most disappointing positions, was not even close to an average level from '14 - '18, unfortunately. These were the right moves to make but now let's see who the replacements are - that is very critical. 

I like how Bubba recognizes and addresses the recruiting and depth concerns. This obviously needs to improve, and since he mentioned it, I now expect it to improve. Add it to the objectives for next season.

 

AREAS NEEDING TO IMPROVE:

1) QB play

2) offensive line play

3) offensive play-calling and scheme 

4) Punt Protection

5) Field Goals and Kickoff

6) Recruiting and Depth (namely offensive line, wide receiver, and now running back and defensive line).

The problem for me in that situation is momentum.  The series before the defense creates a turnover after the offense and specials gave NAU unbelievable field position at UND 30.  3 plays and 1:44 later the offense has bombed again and the d is back out there again.  No qb change, nothing different.    When we punted, Bubba was signaling the game and season was over.

For argument sake.......punt pins NAU at the 10. Say they gain 5 yards on 3 plays. They punt from the 15. 35 yard punt to 50. 8 yard punt return. Where is UND starting with the ball? Huh........

Minus previous minutes off the clock to boot.

I would have liked to see a QB change at half at the latest.  The offense needed that shot in the arm and it’s no disrespect to Ket who I have been a fan of.  He was off Saturday (and maybe the one before).

The punt there was unconscionable to me.  Bubba was signaling he had more confidence in the defense scoring than the offense getting 3 yards.

Go for it on 4th down with what I would call less than 50% chance of converting.  Get that same stop, same punt and same return and your now starting at the opposing 15 with previous time off the clock.  

Its all speculative but when JJ got stopped the play before, I wasn’t confident on 4th.  However I wouldn’t have been against going for it.  Problem is, I don’t think we could have thrown for it and would have almost had to run a QB run play. 

Only my opinion which doesn’t count for anything I know

Agree. We were 3rd and 2 and I believe we got stuffed on that play.  Pinning them deep with a punt is a reasonable play there.  It didn’t work out so it turned out to be a bad idea.  Going for it was reasonable too but not a slam dunk. 

In hindsight it is clear but wasn’t 100% at the time.

Can you blame him?  That’s how we won the week before.

What is 10 divided by 4?  Same odds needed every play moving forward. 

Goodness.......
