  1. 10-4. Didn’t see it there, saw it in the transfer portal thread, which didn’t make sense to me. Feel free to delete this.
  2. Found this posted in the transfer portal thread… I mean, this is a surprise and HUGE news ! Thanks to Big23Head for initial posting: EDIT: i suck at quoting
  3. Ok, now this rings a bell. GD zone blocking. Hiestand was a proponent of this, and our Big Boyz never seemed to be able to get a push off the line because of that. Counterpoint is we got a bunch of guys to be productive NFL linemen. Guess we’ll see what our identity will be next year once all this gels together
  4. If only for shaking things up and creating new powers, all the while giving the kids more of their share, i’m all for it, especially if ND is all in
  5. Why is my memory failing me here… I remember swearing at our weak running game, especially north-south when if was with us. I don’t ever recall being able to lean on our OL and run game to close out games, convert 3rd downs or get a 1-2 yard push off the line consistently. We were always getting yards off the jet sweep or option or QB scramble. Apologies if I’m mistaken won’t deny he helped develop a bunch of our OL into NFL starters
  6. Better run blocking this time Harry. Please? Hope we can officially welcome you back home shortly !
  7. I’d like to think Freeman ‘s coaching was strategic. Pushing everyone to their limits to see what those were. Our lack of depth (and talent at certain positions) became so obvious as the game went on, yet Freeman didn’t try to slow anything down or make any substitutions. Our lack of depth was indeed obvious at WR, LB and Secondary. Austin leaving hurts. We’ll be thin for another year. So let’s hope we can build the running game over the summer. That said: was surprised at the dropoff at RB as well. Looks like Kyren pushed everyone to be better. Without him, we lose 2 more games this year easy. He kept drives alive all by himself. What happens if Cam Hart gets hurt again? Even crazier drop-off, can’t even imagine the drop-off after Lewis…
  8. I know you know why. More time will always favor the football factories. If anything, 8 team playoffs shortens that , hopefully leveling things a bit
  9. Was. He’s officially back, but he’s decided to be on the sidelines more or less
  10. Didn’t say Gundy payed bad on purpose. Meant to say he quickly gauged us , noticed what to target and adjusted. Good part of this is preparation, plus experience. MF didn’t. At all. And as much as Elder grates me, I agreed with him on that. It was troubling. No doubt Freeman will accumulate experience. But he needs to better prepare. The whirlwind of his hire, saving the recruiting class, reorganizing the coaching staff, holidays, all the other stuff required from a ND head coach, etc. So i’ll give him a pass on the lack of preparation for this one. But another deer in the headlights game next year, against OSU or whomever, would be very concerning indeed.
  11. Good on the mods for drawing a line in the sand. I mean, you banned Echo for less than this, and IMO he brought way more to this board than Elder. Better delivery too I hope he learns from this, though it’’s not his 1st time. If all he wants is a soapbox to spew his all knowing gospel, let him stand outside and see how many followers he can muster. worked for Jesus… this is a discussion board, not a podium. If Elder has an opinion i’m all for hearing it, but only if he is also open to debating it with facts and arguments, not insults or other any sort of abusive demeanour, as well as accepting other’s opinions. It should go both ways so all can profit from the exchanges. with that said, Echo, it’s a new year, come back we have an open spot lol
  12. Whatever. I’m out. Way to be impartial here, congrats Bud
  13. Then be a better poster. Goes both ways. You want to troll and call people names, deal with it.
