Initial Thoughts – Day One

UND held their first practice of the 2016 season on Friday.  By all accounts, things went fairly smoothly and the intensity was high, which isn’t a surprise.  Holding that level of intensity into late-August is the real trick.

Thoughts On UND Signing Class 2016

A “Senior Day” Win For UND

To say UND “needed” that win last weekend over #22 Northern Arizona is debatable.  They have been out of the playoff discussion for week’s now and these last games were all being played for pride and the senior’s on the team.  However, now that they have won the game it seems like they did “need”…
