For the public at large, and for non-FB die-hards, hockey success creates an aura of contentment and satisfaction and the tolerance for mediocrity in other sports will persist.

You know, last time hockey won a title other sports were very successful as well. Just sayin. Could build athletic department momentum for next year.

Who better to carry the torch of continued mediocrity into the future?  Would have liked to see at least 1 playoff win before giving him an extension.  

I don’t know much about football, if I did I wouldn’t be reading these type of boards to see what’s going on.    But I will say this, after Bubba got done visiting with us over our kitchen tabl

I agree.  I really like this site for keeping up with UND Football.  With that being said, we have people on here that take pot shots at players, and coaches, and now we are blasting a coach because h

Even better.

Two possible schools of thought with respect to managing the Department:  1. Hockey wins, we can exhale/slide.  2. Hockey wins, we need to press hard and shoot for blockbuster coaching hires and pull the stops to build a winning culture.

I don't know where the current AD falls, but it seems a lot of people on here were quite unhappy with today's news.

Meh, a lot of people around here complain like farmers. There’s a brown lining to everything.

Seems more like a coincidence to me, but whatever floats your boat.

The AD knows what will happen this spring and in 2023:  30 FCS programs will realign this spring and go FBS in 2023.  One year buyout in 2023.  Eric Schmidt will be the new coach in 2023.

The only unknown is whether UND hosts Texas or Oklahoma in the Potato Bowl during UND's inaugural FBS season.

Does it really matter until Phase 2 is built?  Look at UND's locker room situation vs the other Dakota schools... Cannot see much upside with a new coach until that project gets rolling.

For the record, UND had the third highest bid of the 16 teams that played in round one. Unfortunately got matched up with #1 or 2.

But we will hear the myth of a "marginal bid" for eternity on this site.

Raise your hand if you knew that North Dakota was one of “only” TWENTY FIVE schools to make the FCS playoffs in 2 of the past 4 years...

Pay that grad student a stipend for digging deep to find that totally meaningless statistic!

"Comparison is the thief of joy" . And please give the thought that those who don't call for a coaches head are complacent. No one is satisfied, everyone wants more success.

I’ll take “conversations with my NDSU grad dad that’ll never happen” for $500, Alex...

“Hey, son, did you know that NDSU is the ONLY school that has won the FCS national championship in 8 of the last 9 years?”

”REALLY?  Well, UND is 1 of only 25 schools to make the FCS playoffs in 2 of the last 4 seasons, so top THAT, dad!”

When you put it in that context I feel much better about the state of UND FB.

Please email Chaves and let him know what you think about this deep dive into mediocrity.  

UND.AD@und.edu

 

My guess is most people will be kissing his ass in a couple of years. Although some will do the usual spin and ask “what took so long”. Those people don’t matter, nothing is ever good enough for them.

FCS schools in North Dakota have a combined 9 Conference Championships, 12 playoff appearances, and 8 National Championships this past decade..  And UND is a part of that.   ;):D

Are you predicting a big change in the success level of UND Football?  Are we going to dominate the Valley.  If so, why?

would we dominate the Valley with a new staff?  My guess is NO, at least not for 3-4 years, and that's easily debatable

That's because anyone coming in would have to rebuild.  The bigger question is are we going to be where we want to be as a program after 10 years of Bubba?
