Re: What's with players leaving?

Jalen played for Valor Christian High School (Highlands Ranch) and won a state championship. One of his teammates there was Kayle Knuckles. Kayle Knuckles is on the basketball team at Concordia. This might be a good fit for him. He never really got back 100% after his injury and there are players n...

Re: What's with players leaving?

I see that Radebaugh and Harris are not coming back next year. Does anyone know why they have chosen not to play their Sr. year at UNC? They would really have helped us. We did get a good transfer, but he will not be eligible this coming season. Maybe some of the new players would be too much compe...

What's with players leaving?

Correction. My Bad. I reread the Tribune article and somehow didn't see the first part about them returning. I only saw the later statement about them being missed when they leave.

Spring Football

Does anyone know or care what is going on with the Spring football practice? No mention on the UNC web site and only one or two mentions from the Tribune. I am hoping for a good season, but it doesn't look like anyone from the school is excited or even cares about football at UNC. Loosing seems to d...

Re: Shout out to the basketball teams

What a rough tournament for the Bears. Women flame out early and it looks like the men are getting bounced as well. I have said this before and I stand by it. Conference tournaments for small conferences that will only get one March Madness bid stink. The team that wins the regular season should be...

Re: Early signings

Hey guys. I've been lurking on here since about June and just now registering. Full disclosure: My son is one of the kids that signed. I try not to view my kids through daddy glasses, but I can't promise to be completely unbiased. I don't know who all else they're after for this class, but so far I...

Re: Early signings

Except for a couple of players it looks like a lot of DII players. It must be hard to get really good players with such a down and out program with the same old direction from the top to bottom. I don't fault the coaches for lack of effort, I fault the administration for not making changes when it w...

Re: Coaching Update

I don't think the offensive coordinator was our problem. I think the defense and O line was our problem and the losing tone of the program these last many years. The only way to have these things fixed was to start with a new direction of the program. It is nice that we have student athletics that c...

Re: Coaching Update

I always thought we scored enough points to win a game, but gave up a ton of points on defense. Our offensive line was non existent and our defensive backs gave up too many long play gains. We just need a new direction of the program and now that seems to be out of the question. Lets hope by some st...

Re: Head Coaching Candidate wish-list

So, the money issue made me curious. Collins has $150,000 a year until his contract runs out in 2021. So, depending on the contract the athletic department would owe him $450,000. I am assuming this is without cause. I haven't been able to find his contract and I have no interest in submitting a pu...

Re: So...what happened?

I think Dunn is a wrestling guy and doesn't have football as his main priority. At least we have good coaches in our basketball programs. I have seen this in my years of high school teaching and coaching that when you have a former wrestling guy as athletic director their heart is in in wrestling no...

Re: 2018-2019 First 3 games at home

Colorado Christian tonight then Colorado College (2 CC's in a row) on 11/9 then a good home match against Peperdine on 11/13 before the Texas road trip. I assume we walk over the first 2 teams but Peperdine could be a really good game (but you never know this early in the season). What we do know i...

Re: 12 Players suspended

This is more than a casual incident. These are 12 starters, the team leaders. They didn’t miss curfew they ignored it. They finally got fed up with Darren Dunn ignoring Coach Collins lack of leadership skills. The players don’t respect Coach Collins. If you want someone’s respect, you earn it. Coll...

Re: 12 Players suspended

Sounds like a way to make an excuse for another loss this week. If we were 7-0 instead of 0-7 something like this wouldn't have even come up. Players would have been focused on winning and wouldn't have even considered violating team rules. I say get rid of the whole mess and start over like they di...

"If I knew how to fix this, it’d already be fixed,” Collins said. “We have four more (games) and we have to try and get it fixed. We made too many mistakes in the first half of this game." LOL We are all looking for a way that could fix this. As readers of this board, our only way to fix things is ...

Stugart also knows how to get blown out by UNK. Let's hire another coach with a losing record at his current school. Yeah, I honestly don't know if he would even come to NC because facilities are better at Lindenwood and they have deeper pockets Looked him up and he is 97-35 and only had 1 losing s...

Re: Big Sky Power Rankings 2018

We are now 110th out of the 125 FCS teams.

http://www.compughterratings.com/FCS/rankings

Just 2 of the 125 teams with a 0-6 record. Yes I think we have hit rock bottom. We did look good playing against UC Davis's 2nd and 3rd team players.

Is it time now?

Re: Head Coaching Candidate wish-list

I would say after today's game that anyone would be a welcome change. We just need to have a new start with fresh ideas. I wonder if the administration can see this or do they not care about the football team at UNC? They must see the empty seats in the stands are sending their vote as to what needs...
