What's with player leaving basketball team?

Anyone know why Kadie Deaton is no longer a Bear basketball player? I really liked the energy she had and thought she would be a great player down the road for the lady Bears. I hope it was not a personality conflict with the coach and each made an impulse decision to part ways. Hope it all works ou...

Re: Mind Blown - Welcome Ed McCaffrey

Net/Net this is all positive for the school and the football program. Regardless of his coaching experience I have to believe his track record of success on and off the field will translate into improvement. My experience in sports and the corporate world is the team has to buy in to what your sell...

We're #243 out of 255 schools

From the latest RealTime RPI rating of the total FBS and FCS football teams we have almost hit rock bottom with a RPI rating of 243 out of the total 255 teams. Our administration should take note of this and wonder if this is the vision they have for our football program here at UNC. Other sports at...

Re: Coaching Candidates, Thread Number 50

I think we've had about 50 of these threads the past couple of years, so why not another? I think Collins will get another year, because the school cannot afford to buy him out, but it's fun to poke around and see who might be available. My top two candidates... 1. John Wristen - CSUP 2. Jed Stugar...

Re: Coach Collins: 27-67 (.287 Win %) 18–47 Conference (.277 Win %)

Doesn't anyone from the UNC administration from the president to the athletic director to the coaching staff have a clue how to fix this mess. We are not even competitive in our losses. This game with Eastern was 40 -0 at half time. I could see if we lost by 14 or so it would look like we have a dec...

Re: Division II

A step back would not be good for UNC. The only sport that is not competitive now is football. It would be sad if the whole program goes down for the problem of the football program. It can be fixed and must be fixed. Stay positive and Go Bears.

Re: That was ugly

We are now playing at a level comparable to an 0 - 3 NAIA team with 24 scholarships. Southern Oregon only lost by 8 more points to Sac State then we lost by and they didn't even get shut out like we did. We really need to get this mess turned around fast. Lets hope we can get a win over South Dakota...

Re: That was ugly

What Collins should do is to reevaluate his coaching style. He has not had the right formula since he got here. The first thing he should do is scrap that crazy early morning practice time. It only messes with young peoples natural time clocks. They get used to early morning game play and when they ...

Re: Wazzu takeaways, next up is Sac State

From watching the WSU game on TV it is obvious that we have a very poor zone pass coverage scheme. Their receivers were wide open too many times and coupled with our inability to put pressure on their quarterback they tore us up. Maybe with less skilled opponents that won't look so bad when we play ...

Re: Week 1 Opponent - San Jose State

Did anyone see this game in person? If so did it look as bad as it sounded on the radio? It sounded like we have no offense and no defense of the pass. This was against a BCS team and we were expected to lose, but I hope we at least look a little better next game at Washington State and then play co...

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...

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.

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

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...
