Re: New Running Back from U of Michigan

Looks like a good fit for him at UNC. A small guy with lot of grit and smarts. Hope he has a good year and helps make UNC a better team. I am looking forward to see how we do this year. Can't be much worse than these last few years.

Re: Wyoming strikes again

Is there any good news to this recruiting problem? It seems that all we hear about are people not wanting to come here. Do we have anyone that Smiley recruited that wants to be here?

Re: Wyoming strikes again

This is starting to look more like a bad divorce than a change of coaching jobs where one party is taking the house the car and custody of the kids. At least when Boyle left home he didn't take the coaches and kids.

Re: Smiley named head coach

Good news for the Bears. Now the big question for me, is how well can the Bears recruit? I think coach Smiley will be great with the game plan, but the coaches need to get talented D1 players to work with. They have good talent coming back and that should be a good start.

Linder's Replacement

It is always hard to lose a good coach, but that is the way it is now days in the coaching world. The good ones move up and the bad ones move on. I would hope they hire coach Smiley and can keep the rest of the current staff. They all seemed to work well together and did a good job recruiting.

News from Spring practice

I hope some of you local Bear fans will keep us up with how things look at Spring practice. I am really excited to see a new look for the Bears this year. We can't be much worse than we were these last few years so anything positive would be nice to hear about. I hope they don't keep those early mor...

Re: Can Linder win the BIG GAME(S)?

No problem with coach Linder. The game last night was that we got beat by a really good team and we came a few shots and missed free throws of winning that game. We might have another shot with them in the playoffs if someone can knock them out before we have a chance to meet them again. Our team wi...

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 ...

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...

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...
