Are there any freshman or redshirt freshman who are gonna come in and make an immediate impact?

This site lists http://www.sportsnetwork.com/default.asp?c=sportsnetwork&page=/cfoot2/news/AGN3975504.htm

Jordan Paula as our best newcomer.

Also, is there a reason why we aren't getting any transfers from other programs. I noticed other Great West schools were getting transfers from some big D1 programs.

With our proximity problems, I would imagine we're relatively unknown by athletes seeking a transfer from D1 school. That being said, winning cures everything. If we keep winning and start making a name for ourselves, we'll start attracting more of the Nebraska, Minn, etc. transfers looking for a fresh start. The transfers are usually looking for 2 things when transferring down a level. First and foremost: playing time. At a not-to-distant second would be a winning program.

We need to get our football program to the level in the public opinion where an 8-3 record is an expected result each season, much like our neighbors to the north. Then, we'll start getting more transfers, better recruits, more scholarship donations, nicer shoes, the best mouthguards money can buy, cushioned benches on the sidelines, heaters, a dance squad to go along with our cheerleaders...the sky is the limit.

A couple of true freshman may have there shirts pulled along the DL. We have been hit with a couple of injuries and a couple of guys who have decided to leave the team. Our depth there is a little thin......The guys are getting ready to be done with fall camp and start the season, They will be ready.....

2 DL left shortly after spring ball, Chet Delbridge and Travis Aherns, both had injuries that hindered them. Both were excellent lineman and there experience wiil be missed. Ryan Schlieman (DL) left during the first week of camp. True freshman Hank Goff (DE) is doing well

Not surprised Goff is doing well. He was a force in Minnetonka's win in the championship game.

I read in the Argus preview this morning that Willie Jones is also out indefinantly with an injury. This makes us even thinner on the DL. Anyone know how long or what his injury is?

Yep, you bunnies have some catching up to do in regards to getting some transfers. Out of our 10 new transfers, 5 of the come from d1a programs. Solid programs. We have a Qb from Mississippi State, an O-lineman from Colorado State, a fullback from Wyoming, a LB from Boise State, a Wide out from U of Nebraska. The rest of the transfers come from the Juco and CC. ;D ;D ;D

That is what you do when you are trying to rebuild after a disastrous 2-9 season, you look for the quick fix. If I were Coach Dalton, I would be looking for short cuts to respectability too. If I were a UNC fan I sure as heck wouldn't be bragging about it. ::)

I won't hijack this thread and make it smack. However, 89Rabbit, letting players on our squad who didn't quit fit in on the 1a level isn't looking for short cuts. These players want to come be part of the Bears and we aren't going to turn them down. We have some holes to plug and why not plug them with experienced talent?

Because you can't plug them with home-grown talent.

Nothing wrong with JUCO kids or transfer students, every program uses them. As a matter of fact I am a big fan of both James Epps and Mike James a couple of guys we got from Ft. Scott CC before last season. However, having to add 10 in one season does not show that your program is "ahead" of anyone. In fact coupled with your record in 2004 it show the opposite. It's kind of like taking four cards in a game of 5 card draw.

Go State! ;D

Why do you keep dwelling on our past record? Seriously, in every post you keep coming back to it. You're the only one that keeps doing this. The last I looked at our current standings every team in the conference is 0-0.

If you don't want to turn this thread into a Smack thread, starting a post with "Yep, you bunnies have some catching up to do" is probably not the best way to go about it.

Simply put UNC was a bad team last year and your record is tagible proof. It is ok to be bad. However, if you are bad and then you post smack you shouldn't be surprised when people remind you of just how bad your team was.

I know you Bears fans want to pretend that last year didn't happen (and who can blame you) and all you really want to do is talk about your "Glory Days" in D-II so let me put this in D-II terms for you - Augie went 3-8 last year. I am sure their fans are talking about how the Vikings are 0-0 on the year as well.

So your take away is that teams that go 2-9 really shouldn't post smack, and if they do please expect people to remind you that you went 2-9.

Does that help clear things up for you?


Go State! ;D

How many times are you going to come back to our past record? Are you going to keep doing that until Sept 3rd when both teams should end the day 1-0 (heck you do play a d3 team, i expect you to win). What's the deal?

Smack is supposed to be fun, and anyone who takes this stuff seriously probably should look into counseling and should avoid the smack board.

You question our recruiting. We question your record. In the end, it's all just talk and nothing to get upset about. :)

On the subject of D1A transfers, I remember sitting in Southerns stadium in Baton Rouge last year looking at the impressive list of transfers on their roster from LSU, Mississippi St. , Florida, and other SEC schools and I began thinking that this might be a problem...

It Wasnt...

SDSU 31 Southern U. 24

I have no doubt we will beat you. After all, we usually do. Over all series goes to UNC, 18-14. :P

i personally think that D-IA transfers aren't worth much. they were failures at their previous school and they may or may not be able to do something better at a lower level. The last D-IA transfer that UNC got that i remember getting significant playing time was QB jon boyer from CSU. he was terrible but not as bad as our qb last year. most D-IA transfers end up riding the bench at I-AA or D-II.

to keep this in the spirit with my UNC brother: SDSU's football program is mediocre at best and UNC will win by 14-50 points this year. last year was a fluke.

P.S. That SDSU player shown in that one picture that you always post of SDSU winning that rock when you beat NDSU looks like a midget.

Good points on the D1A transfers.

14 to 50? Now that's an interesting prediction. Are you aware that the game is in Brookings? In November? The weather in Greeley last year certainly kept the scoring to a minimum. The same thing could happen this year. I don't doubt that UNC should be better (and granted UNC played a very tough schedule last year) but I think that's kind of a silly prediction.

I predict SDSU will win with a margin of somewhere between 1 and 115.

P.S. I believe they prefer to be called 'little people'... and there aren't any on our football team.

Not a bad prediction. If SDSU wins i bet it will be within the range you stated.

Who would have thought a subject title of "New Talent??" would turn into smack about UNC?

I predict we beat UNC 78-0. ;D If I remember correctly, that is one more point than a lesser division score I've heard recently. Who does UNC think they are... MN-Crookston? ::)

Nah, I'm 40. But I'm a college professor and I'm around kids who say stuff like that all the time. It's not something I use very often in my own world, except on the smack board when I am acting like a 17-year-old (that's about the intellectual level of the smack board, I think).

By the way, I saw former UNC receiver Brad Pyatt catch a pass for the Colts against the Broncos last night. While he never played in the Great West, it's always nice to see players from the Great West schools in the NFL.

I predict that uncbears will highjack the next thread he posts in. I also predict that he will post a statement with a variation of the following, "UNC is the best." I also predict that when someone from this thread sends him the "UNC sucks" response, he'll give his hurt "why do you have to dog on UNC" retort. And you pretty much know where it will go from there.

Good luck in football this year. You're going to need it. I hope you can make the trip to Brookings this year for the game. You can enjoy the replays of SDSU killing UNC on our new scoreboard before heading back to Harry Highschool field. Then, on to the Big Sky. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Yeah, Brad was a great player for us on our 2002 march thru the playoffs. When he and Steve Cutlip announced they were transfereng to UNC, I had great hopes of both of them leading us to another title. They were a good combo (they both played on the same high school team too, in Denver). It's too bad we came up one game short. That was a very interesting season for Bears fans. Lots of ups and downs and worrys (Steves inegibility.) Brad left after only one year. There were rumors floating around about some of the reasons that I can't go into now. He's a good football player and hopefully he'll stay healthy.
