In what I would term a pleasant surprise, UND has uploaded their 2019 roster to the Fighting Hawks website. Before we dig into the subtractions and omissions we need to clarify a few things. UND signed a large 2019 class (we predicted a much smaller class). With the latest addition of WR Hayden Overby (Thompson,
The 2019 UND spring football session officially concludes this Friday with the “Spring Wrap-Up” practice/scrimmage. It’s been a fairly uneventful spring session for the Hawks. No major injuries (a huge positive), quiet battles going on that will undoubtedly go on into late-August, etc. With that being said it doesn’t mean there aren’t things to look
It appeared to be a pretty good day overall for the five pro hopeful’s that represented UND today. Their were five Hawks present yesterday and all five performed the full range of tests. We have compiled as many results as we have access to (the results are often word of mouth and not formally presented).
After practice on Wednesday I was able to catch up with new OL Coach Joe Pawlak. Pawlak’s passion and intensity for offensive line play is apparent at all times. In fitting in with the rest of the offense, Pawlak always hustles everywhere he goes. Including running away from me as I was trying to catch
The UND Football team resumed spring practices yesterday after taking off a week for spring break. As one would expect, it was a bit sloppy at times but wasn’t short on big plays and enthusiasm. First off, when walking into the HPC it’s a totally different atmosphere now with the west side bleachers installed. Besides
March 1st is proving to be a big day in the world of UND Fighting Hawks Football. The team begins spring practice today at 4:15pm in the beautiful HPC. One difference that fans will notice is the elevated seating has been installed on the west side of the building making it easy to swing in
UND Football will once again be hosting their annual Signing Day Party tomorrow night at 5:30pm – only this time with a little twist. The event has been moved the the Ralph Engelstad Arena lobby this year. The reason being is there’s also a game going on immediately afterwards that people may want to attend.
The UND defense is coming off a 2018 season where they were dominant at times and dominated at times. Overall, their effort & results were playoff worthy, but we are sure ‘consistency’ will be the focus as they cast their gaze to the 2019 season. UND allowed 22.6 points/game in 2018, which was good for
Well, lets take another shot at this. We gathered up some names of potential candidates for the defensive line job that was recently vacated by Jordan Gigli. Gigli took a similar position at Northern Illinois. Some of these are corroborated names, while others have been researched on our own. Let’s take a look at some
UND had their destiny laid out in front of them before the ball was even kicked off Saturday. Win and go to the playoffs – more than likely hosting a home game. Lose and the season’s over. In what was a fairly ugly game overall, the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks jumped on the Hawks early and
If you want to know exactly what will happen (or could happen) this coming weekend and how it will affect the FCS playoff field we got you covered. Welcome to another edition of the 360 Rumors Bar Grill and Casino podcast. This week we are happy to be joined by Shannon Schweigert of the UND Football Tailgate
In a pregame tweet on Saturday we ended our thoughts with “Just Win Baby”. UND did just that – beating the Portland State Vikings on Senior Day by a score of 17-10 to improve their record to 6-4. The Vikings dropped to 4-6 on the season. With the win UND kept their playoff hopes alive
It’s the final home game of the season this Saturday vs. Portland State. Game time is 2pm. The Hawks are in do-or-die mode as they need to win these last two games to finish 7-4 and have a shot at the FCS Playoffs. This final home game also doubles as the annual Senior Day, where

I think it’s safe to say that Idaho Vandal fans had bigger expectations than to be 3-5 in their inaugural season back at the FCS level. That is, those fans that didn’t revolt and claim to abandon the program after the announcement. Idaho is 3-0 at home and 0-5 on the road. Upon further review
In what turned out to be a drama-filled football game, the UND Fighting Hawks came up short in their comeback bid losing 35-30 to Weber State on Saturday. UND dug themselves out of several holes, including a 14-0 deficit to start the game. But, ultimately it was the Wildcats that made a few more plays
Buckle up folks, we got a good one on tap this weekend. The #4 Weber State Wildcats and their smothering defense are coming into the Alerus Center for a knockdown, dragout tilt with the #22 North Dakota Fighting Hawks. Game time is set for 2pm at the Alerus Center. Weber State is 5-2 on the

Even though it hasn’t been officially confirmed by UND, the word is that UND captain Tanner Palmborg is out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. The injury was sustained last week vs. Montana. QB Dalton Sneed was flushed out of the pocket to his right and Palmborg was rushing up field
This week we are joined by the foremost authority on Big Sky Football, Colter Nuanez of Skyline Sports. Colter gives us a full breakdown of the Montana Grizzlies season thus far, the matchup with UND and his prediction on who wins the game.
The UND Football team is currently on their bye week so we figured now would be a good time to recap what we saw in the first half of the season. The team currently sits at 3-2. As most know, they need to reach 7-4 to have a shot at the FCS playoffs. However, that
On the Tailgate Show with Shannon Schweigert we laid out our breakdown of the game along with our predictions, like we typically do. Kelly thought it would be a tight three point game for UND. Craig felt the Hawks would win by about 12. The Schweigert Brothers and Charlie Bridgeford predicted comfortable victories, as well.
Two teams desperately needing a win will be locking horns this Saturday out in Colorado. North Dakota, coming off a devastating 25-21 loss to Idaho State last week, currently has a 2-2 record and a daunting upcoming schedule. To drop this game and fall to 2-3 would be a near-fatal blow. Northern Colorado currently has

Idaho State vs North Dakota Idaho State comes into the game with a 1-1 record. The Bengals pounded D2 Western State 45-10
Bubba Schweigert’s squad had just come off a roller coaster slate of games – Beating Wyoming for its first FBS win ever, sleep-walking through a narrow victory over Drake, losing to long-time rival NDSU, beating UC-Davis at home, then heading out to Portland State to take on a red-hot Vikings team that had just beaten
