2020 Football Season

Recommended Posts

2019 ended with a thud.  Never too early to look ahead to the coming season.

Since we are moving down to the MVFC, the schedule next year sets up more favorably.  Without digging real deep into what every team has returning for players, I see 7 games where UND can be favored, three likely losses, and a pick ‘em.

WIN vs Valparaiso 

LOSS at Kansas St

WIN at Youngstown St

PUSH vs SDSU

WIN vs Missouri St

WIN at Western Illinois

WIN at Portland St

WIN vs USD

LOSS at Illinois St

LOSS at NDSU

WIN vs Southern Illinois

The outcome of the SDSU will determine if UND gets a seed and the first round bye that comes with it or if we play on Thanksgiving weekend again.

You are hopeful.  I’m thinking this based off our who’s coming back and who made the playoffs this year.

I agree with your version more.  I don't see SDSU as a Push....unless they are graduating a LOT.  Losing Rodgers is going to be a big loss for us, obviously Bennett too but I think our biggest lost will be Rodgers.

I like our chances at home against SDSU in an early season game.   Will probably be Potato Bowl and biggest crowd of the season.  Different story if it were in Brookings.

Agree about Rodgers, huge shoes to fill.

Anyone know anything about Cam Hunt?  I expected big things from him this year, but he sort of disappeared in the second half of the season.

This appears to be a best case scenario.  I'd put at least one of those "wins" ends up as a loss.  I see a 6-5-ish year coming.  But who knows, that's why the game gets played.

Cam Hunt was dismissed weeks ago.

This is an 11 game schedule......did UND opt not to schedule a 12th again for next season?

UND has 6 road games.....at best they'll win 3 (1-5 this season). I can see 7-4 but more likely 6-5. I think they lose to SDSU at home and go 2-4 on the road.

Only 11 games allowed next season.

The 12 game season happens something like once every 5 years.  All depends on where Labor Day falls.

It will be a very difficult game. SDSU is at a different place with its program compared to UND. They have no problem challenging @MInnesota and @NDSU so @Alerus Center won’t be much of an added challenge. 

It will he a fun game in the Alerus Center, just not sure UND will have enough talent to win. UND’s coaching has me doubting.

That was quiet. Too bad as well. Did his departure coincide with our run D becoming absolutely pathetic as the season winded down?

If UND starts of 1-2 which is possible the attendance should be very good vs SDSU. But what happens to home attendance going forward if UND loses that one? Who will show up at 1-3 vs a bad Mo. St. team?

Now if UND is 3-1 I'd hope people would come to watch them go to 4-1.

Attendance or lack thereof has to be a big concern for Chaves at this point.

I don't think he gained more than 5 pounds in 3 years.......not sure how that's possible.

Attendance and the “game day experience” go hand in hand

wasn’t the Chamber big in UND football? Is there a visitor’s bureau?

need to cast a big net to improve the experience..

He didn’t play that much all season.  Was suspended for a couple games before he was dismissed. 
 

Need more beef up front for run d. Need a couple 300lbers at NG and 4 260lbers at DT.

If you don't have a QB who can throw more than 20 yards downfield, you adjust your playbook to fit your players. 

If you don't have a large body up front, you need to adjust to fit your players. Schmidt isn't doing that.

Who is the Brad Johnson- like qb you’re thinking of?

Good news is we get Holm back for another season. He was by far the best d back and I am looking forward to seeing him play a full season.

Maybe this question has already been covered but since Zimmerman was hurt most of the year can he come back next year as a QB candidate?

I'm just using that as a hypothetical. Freund isn't going to run vertical routes every play if he doesn't have a QB who can throw.

Why is Schmidt running the same old system if he doesn't have the right type of players?
