2019 Season

Here's a question that I know the answer to, but I'll ask anyway:

Zimmerman redshirted at EWU in 2015.
He went to a JC in 2016. 
He appeared in four games for UND in 2017.
He appeared in six games for UND in 2018. 

He's only appeared in three games in 2019 before he went down with an injury. 

Any chance he could get a sixth year of eligibility? (I know, I know, slim and none and slim left town. Sixth years are like double-eagles in golf.) 

That said, it would be nice to have another QB that knows the system next year. 

Otherwise it's Schuster, Grover, and gut ache. 

Didn't Scotty Guldseth play like 8 years for the Mens BB team?

More likely to get another transfer or FBS dropdown than get Zim another year, IMO.

I agree; but, do you file the NCAA paperwork just in case?

If we're trying to get injury redshirts let's talk about one for Donnell Rodgers for 2017.   I know 0% chance but how awesome would that be. I think he's gonna be the hardest guy to replace next year.

It seems like Freund has called a good offense this year.  Like everyone, very happy with that development.  What I can't understand is why our defense bends so much before they finally stiffen up.  I figured Schmidt would have his recruits playing defense like when Schmidt out there himself.

The DL has been severely undermanned this season.  Guys have stepped up, but only so much can be done with lack of weight and/or experience.  Especially when Mason was out, put ton of extra pressure on rest of defense.

Saw this on twitter.  Would be great if Siouxsports members rallied behind this and really upped their donations this year!

He would have had to miss his 2015 year (the original redshirt year) due to injury.  That's the most common way 6th years are granted.  That's how Zach Vraa was awarded one anyway.

Holiday Magic from Markus was an amazing experience. I’d recommended donating to this cause. I’ve seen first hand the impact it has on families, it’s incredible.

Yes. His post was 2 weeks before that announcement.

WOW. That says a lot.... emotionally driven is huge.... hope they can right that in 2020.....

To be emotionally flat for a playoff game is inexcusable. That’s on every person in the program. Cannot happen.

I think we saw this all season long.  Slow starts, poor performances against weaker teams, great performance against Weber.  Something is up, and we can all see it.  Sure hope it gets fixed.

Leaders need to light a fire. That goes for players and coaches. I’ve seen clips of Bubbas pre game speeches and those are not gonna get anyone fired up, others need to pick up that slack and spark the team.

Consistency is something that  the UND football program has been missing since they moved up.  You watch some of the top teams in FCS, and you see a professional, consistent performance for the most part, game after game.

Yup... excited, focused, and leadership in recruits.... then some type of disconnect.

Need to support coaches and staff so they can support players.....

WOW, just wow

Bubba just doesn’t seem like a real high energy guy

I have listened to him give multiple talks at coaching clinics. Nice guy, but doesn't really get you fired up.

"There wasn't probably the same intensity I didn't feel like on Saturday that you thought it really would be," defensive coordinator Eric Schmidt said. "That it would be really, really ramped up, and a lot of times it's because you're not emotionally ready to play."

I find that quote very disturbing.

I noticed that quote in the article, too, and I was wondering why they wouldn't be ramped up to play a playoff game.  Seems very odd.

Nothing should have to be said for a team to be jacked for a playoff game. If anything, the coach should have to calm them down.

This is a principal concern with the coaching staff, particularly Bubba. Regardless of your style, you need to be an effective leader of men to be a good football coach. There are doubts. 

Alternatively, is UND recruiting the right guys? Shouldn't have a team that is "down" for a playoff game. 

I believe it's the former; that is, the coaching staff's inability to lead them, however.
