Everyone enjoying the F'n Clown Show they made college football??

Not really, but it would be more enjoyable if UND was at least winning. Especially hard to stomach now with UND losing PLUS all their players leaving. 
 

May not be popular, but Bubba HC era is nearing an end. You want a FCS championship caliber team in Grand Forks? Then time to move on and get someone better. May not be until 2024, but needs to happen.

Schools must be a lot less stringent these days when it comes to transferring credits from one school to another. I remember back when I was in school(late 80's) I had friends switch schools and they would lose credits going from one school to another either because the class didn't fit the cirriculum at the school you were transferring and many times if you didn't have an A or a B the class would alos not transfer to new school.

Some of these are more athlete than student plus when the bill is being paid by a scholarship credits don't mean that much. However a vast majority of student athletes that enter the portal will end up not finding a home or at least one with a scholarship

Pretty solid advice since there is a lot going on behind the scenes and in this particular case, the player has not indicated anything publicly.
Maybe some realize the grass isn't greener and are welcomed back. Maybe they aren't.

So you and midwestern know for 100% fact that these players are transferring out because of Bubba? 100% fact?

I can only speak for myself, but of course I don’t KNOW the motivation of every player in the portal, but to think the season and the way so much of it transpired does not have an effect is silly.   
if we had won the conference and we’re hosting a playoff game at the Alerus center on Saturday, at this very moment no UND player  would be in the portal.
What effect did the season have on the UND football fan base and attendance at the last home game?  It was snowing but if UND would have been 8-1, would the attendance have been so pathetic?

Thanks for the answer.

Wait til teams get bounced from the playoffs and see how many transfer.  They typically wait til the season is over.  I would imagine NDSU will have plenty.

Weah- if you look at his social media you can see what his attitude is……me, me, me. Maybe he is leaving because he sees less playing time in his future with a stacked backfield. Ziebarth and Smith make weah leaving much more tolerable and these guys are as good in different ways. I do see him leaving as a lack of character because of all the work UND put into him to help get him where he is at. He needs a slice of humble pie and maybe he can get that going to Minnesota. A team will have to consider his baggage; ball security, catching the ball (better in 2021), potential legal issues, potential work ethic issues, etc…… How far does Weah want to move from his home?

I do see Nelson and Robertson leaving because of Dixon coming in. We will gladly take them back if Dixon goes elsewhere. Dixon is coming to UND because of his playing time prospects and because of our top defensive play. He could go to a better team but have the potential to sit longer. I would love to see any of our transfers play FBS but are they good enough to get a scholarship offer?

Guys that didn’t play much are not transferring because of Bubba and the coaching staff. They want to play! Most end up transferring down but some do transfers laterally or up so anything can happen.

Starters that leave want bigger and better things. They want to play in the top FBS league to prove themselves or they want to transfer to a winning program that has the potential to contend for championships if they are stuck at a school they don’t see getting there. I would say not many starters leave just because they don’t get along with the coaching staff or don’t respect them.
