2019 Fall Camp

Recommended Posts

Looks like the OL are about 20-30 lbs too light.  If und is indeed installing  zone blocking in the new offense they should be alright. Typically OL outweigh the opponents front.   Might not be the case this year.

Yeah I remember seeing that just thought it was interesting. 360 guys said he is here just must be a logistical thing.

I'm anxious to see Boltman's progression as a WR during fall camp.  Most depth at WR we have had in some time, kid like that needs to be on the field, make it happen coaches.

Is there a reason so many on the OL lost weight?  I don't know football well enough... Could the OL coach, freund, and the strength coach have planned for this, so the lineman can be quicker/faster?  Are lineman in passing offenses normally smaller?  What the hell was our strength coach doing?  If this wasn't on purpose, it's rather alarming.

I would say since there is quite a few guys that came in lighter, there was obviously reasoning behind that.  It wasn't just a coincidence.

Am in GF today so I stopped by practice this morning.  Not much to see with only helmets on today.

Good tempo at practice and some good looking athletes.

Can you confirm that our offensive linemen are anorexic?

The coaches have a plan with the weight of the OLs. They are well aware of their weight. Time will tell if this is the correct plan, but as of now this is a fan generated issue.

I have to say going through the weights on the roster, I have a lot of questions.  Maybe the OL is by design, but far too many guys are not putting on weight.

They can have some of my weight.

Ya I also feel they are undersized, but if this was an issue it seems the S&C staff would work on it.

Players gainz are tracked weekly if not daily. Also 4 weeks until season opener so 10 to 15 lb additions isn't unreasonable.

I cannot confirm that. There were some big dudes in that group.

Shakey's Pizza closing a few years ago might also have something to do with the weight loss.

There is still the hot wing pizza at Popolino's! I miss that place.

It was a beautiful day to kick-off the year out at Memorial Stadium this morning. A little overcast to start but the sun cam a-blazing as the morning progressed.

Speaking of blazing, there is a marked uptick in the tempo of the offense between plays in skelly and in 11-on-11. It's like they are in hurry-up all the time. Execution did not seem to be impacted too much for the offensive unit.  This is a welcome change, I think. As long as coaches know how to use tempo -- both hurry it up and slow it down -- in game situations.

Yes, yes, yes, the hogs are a bit leaner this year. Noticeably so. This does not appear to be by accident or unintended, after a quick survey of in-the-know folks on the sideline.

It was nice to see Otis out there practicing as hard as ever despite having to sit out the fall. His explosiveness and speed seem to have gotten even better and more sudden. And his catching out of the back field was better. Keep it up! And study hard, Otis.

Also really good to see Izzy out on the field at full speed. Same goes for Mikey Greibel.... starting off fall camp without a cast on his arm.

As far as new speedsters, I give you Sammy Fort. He looked aggressive and ultra fast in drills. He also took some time on KR duty.

Coach Schmidt took some time today to introduce Nos. 52 and 93 to UND Fall Camp life. The DL frosh duo had to redo one particular drill a half dozen times one right after the other. No dogging allowed, boys, under Coach Schmidt's watch.

As was mentioned earlier, former Hawks receiver and special teams standout Alex Reed is now an assistant, working with Coach King with the WR Corps.

QB Grover had a couple of really nice balls in which he dropped it in perfectly with the receiver surrounded by defenders on sideline routes. One to Chrysten Cochran (AKA "CC") and the other to Maag.

Maag also went the distance after a short over the middle pass. Maag caught the ball about 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, then made an awkward move to head up field. The  move surprised the two DBs that were about to converge on him and he was able to escape the tackles untouched and burst 45 yards for the TD.

Leach was 5/6 on FG tries from varying distances.

The other kicker in camp, presumably Brady Stevens, was 3/4 on FG from varying distances. His last was a miss -- oof!

The No. 1 Offensive line appeared to stay true to the 2-deep today: Waletzo, Tobin, Rooney, Hergel and Russo.

Morrison (1) and Lickfeldt (2) alternated at Nose on the defensive side. I will continue to monitor this area.

Pedro Schmidt, of all players, had the best offensive showing during 11-on11 drills to finish out the day. One of the wildest plays involved Pedro sneakily getting behind the DBs, and the QB  spotting him for a 40 yard catch and run for a TD.

Kett looked fine...nothing to write home about yet. Zimmerman held his own today as well. Grover looked really good. Schuster looked smallish and like a freshman should --his head was swimming.

Let's do it again tomorrow! 

Great update.  Thanks, Teeder!
