Spring Game 2014 Info

The 2014 UND Spring Football game will be held tomorrow, Saturday April 26th at the Alerus Center.  The game will begin at 1pm.

Here is a list of things going on prior to and after the game:

  • The annual Kids Clinic will precede the game at 11:30 a.m. and is open to kids eighth grade and younger. Comfortable clothing appropriate for athletic activities is recommended but no cleats.
  • Parking and tailgating is free on Saturday and lots will open at 8 a.m.
  • Saturday will also mark the first day parents can sign up their children for the 2014-15 membership year of Jr. Champions, the official UND Athletics kids’ club. Membership (which previously cost $25/year) will be completely free in 2014-15, with thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsors, U.S. Bank and Midco Sports Network.
  • Following the Spring Game, which should conclude no later than 2:30 p.m., fans will are encouraged to come down to the field, meet the team and the new coaching staff and get autographs from the team.
  • As we stated previously on twitter, the game will be Offense vs. Defense.  They will setup in various spots on the field and run a set number of plays from each spot.
  • UND Sports had a nice spring ball video preview with OC Paul Rudolph.

Position battles we will be watching:  

  1. Quarterback (Bartles vs. Mollberg vs. Hanson vs. Palandech – The QB spot is 100% up for grabs)
  2. Running Back (Shaugabay vs. Sparks vs. Sharp vs. Garman – The RB spot is 100% up for grabs)
  3. Wide Receiver (McGill vs. Carr vs. Young – The two starting WR spots are 100% up for grabs although we would give McGill the edge for one of them)
  4. Outside Linebacker (Idowu vs. Butler vs. Hickel vs. Labat)
  5. Safety (B. Carr vs. James vs. Reyes vs. Coyle – We feel Reyes is the future at one of the safety spots and the other three will battle for the second starting safety position).
