Doesn’t seem real yet that we play next weekend.

Should I assume that every team is treating this as a regular season? Not holding anything back or playing personal differently?

will losing teams say that this isn’t the real season so no big deal? 

I think for a lot of teams it's going to depend on how things go.  For example, should we lose the opener and then lose to SDSU, and then get a 3rd loss by mid season, well at that point playoffs are pretty much out the window.  I could then see the coaches getting younger players more reps than they normally would, and I would hope the do so.  Nobody is losing out of a year of eligibility this year, so by the end of the year, depending on your record....may determine how hard you are really trying to win.  Not that you aren't trying, but maybe not giving all of your studs as many reps, keep them healthy for the fall, getting young guys some experience to build depth for the fall. On the other hand, if you are winning.....you are going to pretty much play it out as regular season trying to keep winning and make the playoffs.   That is my take on how it may play out.

Hi fellas, I’ve enjoyed your banter and analysis for ten plus years. The Whooping I watched today was my most enjoyable UND football game since getting liquored up back in the day at the “Best Bet”  i

Has anyone heard anything about streaming options yet? I know regular season MVFC games are on ESPN+ or 3 but nothing is listed for the spring season.

I'm also in Colorado and have concerns about how to watch the games this spring.  About an hour ago I scrolled to next weekends schedule on ESPN+ and there are no MVFC games listed at all. Not sure what that means. The new Midco sports streaming service is not available in Colorado. I'm near Utah so I could conceivable drive into Moab or Green River and find wifi. Hopefully the MVFC games will start populating the Espn+ or 3 schedule this week.

Sure miss plutoTV. Free and generally reliable. 

couldn't disagree more about reliability with them.  constant buffering for me with their live sports programming.  it was nice having all conference games in all sports in the same location on tv though.  volleyball has since dropped off my radar because its so hard to track now.

I think they really want to name Vaughn the starter, but he hasn't shown the consistency he needs to have to get the nod.  Schuster may start this weekend, but wouldn't be surprised to see Vaughn start sooner than later.

Love hearing that he thinks the OL is one of the strengths of the team, I can't remember the last time that was the case.

Anyone else nervous about the middle - NG and Inside Linebacker..   They have to be stout playing in the MVFC.  If UND can't stop the power running game up the middle it is going to be a long season.

Last year we beat Montana  State, and nearly beat Weber State with starting DL of Jaelen Johnson, Griffin Lickfeldt, and DeVore (taking from the Tom Miller article), Bennett was injured for a part of the year in 2019.  We lost Bennett but everyone else is back and should have more weight on and they guys returning from 2019 should be improved.  While I'm trying to be glass half full, it still concerns me and remains to be seen how well they can plug things up and not get pushed back.

Hopefully it's not just an inferior DL that they've been lining up against.
