I think its a fair criticism when UND should be trying to build its fan base.  The schedule doesn't say ESPN3/+ to let people know that it will at least be on one of those services, and the game notes imply that there is no streaming option: "For the first time since Nov. 30, 2019, North Dakota football is set to take the field against Southern Illinois on Saturday afternoon from the Alerus Center. Fans can watch the contest on MidcoSN with Alex Heinert and Ryan Kasowski on the call or tune into the Home of Economy Radio Network with Jack Michaels and Tom Dosch."

Fans who are indiferent arent going to look any deeper than that.  Its UND's responsibility to get the word out - its called marketing.

One more thing for me to complain about and I'll stop, but it would be nice for there to be landing page on fightinghwaks.com for football gameday, or at least a more recent football article than March 1st.  Pretty sure the landing page the whole week leading up the the home opener was for hockey puck drop that evening.

You sure seem like a avid fan. Hang in there my friend, it'll getter better as the wins come.
Works that way all across American. Let's put another W in the bucket today.

Yeah, you're right about winning and that's a great point.  I should probably get back to work and do my own job.    At least for 10 min until game time.

So biggest question out there.....Does the team continue with the black jerseys on the road next weekend?  I say absolutely!!  Keep going with what works!!  Business suits seem to work well for UND sports teams!!!

Road teams typically wear white so I bet that's what they wear. However, keep the blacks rolling at home!

I do like that look! I also like the all whites with green helmets. In this case i'd go with the black pants to keep the mojo going.

If I knew how to do it I would make a video with guys like Dom Izzo talking about this with images of negative tweets displayed, and then it would transition to a highlight video of UND dominating and then clips of Dom back tracking.

I have to imagine that the way UND is playing, in conjunction with the way NDSU is playing will really help balance the regional recruiting IF the trajectory continues through the spring. Wins over SDSU and USD already help, and a win over NDSU would be big too.  A strong spring season is great, but if we can back it up with another nice season in the Fall we will really be positioning ourselves to win more of the recruiting battles we need.

I am well aware that I am looking way to far ahead with some of this, but from a recruiting standpoint, it would certainly help. From a playing standpoint, all focus is on Western.

Wow what a great season so far! So many positive things on both offense and defense.  Love our schemes on both sides and we are back to a defense that gets pressure and sends people from everywhere. Getting back to the days when it was questionable if the other teams QB would make it a full game!  After watching all 3 games (2 in person) I do have a question for the even more hardcore fans than me.  One thing I have noticed is Tommy seems to consitently be a half second late in making his throws, not throwing until well after the WR breaks often time giving the DB time to catch up or ending up to close to the sideline to make a play. Is this something others are seeing and if so does that get fixed with game experience and practice?  I assume so?  I just worry given he has such great protection many times that those should be easy in rhythm throws that even a young QB should make at the FCS level.  Please tell me that comes with experience so I can be as excited about this team as I want to be!

So far in all three games we have sent their starting quarterback to the trainer, the USD quarterback came back out and took them down the field, but have to wonder if he didn't have some issues that limited him.
