    He needs an offense other than Dave Richman's. When is that experiment going to be done? We've lost all momentum from Miles/Saul...and Dave's team wins enough despite him to keep him around.

    Have you watched any of the last 5 games or are you just throwing this out there? Dave's offense is working great for Grant Nelson, wasn't always the case this season but has been for the last few weeks and now NDSU is on a roll.

    Grant has NIL deals here, has the Nodak Insurance commercials, has the Shoot 360 deal and I believe one or two others. No he's not making millions but there's a chance with all the recent hype more deals could come his way and be enought to keep him around.

    I just hope he's still at NDSU by next fall and not somewhere like Kansas.
    Agree, doesn’t have the strength/physical game for the NBA….yet. He can put the ball on the floor in the Summit league, the NBA would be a different story. Just hope he stays home next year!

    He is clearly not NBA ready, but he will be after playing another season. What works in the Summit aint the NBA. He could get drafted now but he would be a low pick and then end up in Europe. If he develops next year he's a high 2nd or low 1st. Even Mike Daum went undrafted and is playing in Italy. Grant isnt at his level yet. He will be

    I'd be shocked if Nelson doesn't transfer to a P5 next season. Wish him well whatever he decides to do though I'd like to see him finish here.

    I wouldnt. He's set up to be the focal point of our team thats young and improving. Big stats get you noticed. At a P5, he's not going to be "the guy."

    Kevin Obanor from ORU transfered to Texas Tech and averaged 10 ppg and 5 rpg wasnt getting him 1st round talks so he returned as a super senior. He's putting up 15 and 5 now, his stock is improving. I think his stock would have been higher if he stuck with ORU and be the guy who took them to the Sweet 16 on his back

    It is characteristic of the unlearned that they are forever proposing something which is old, and because it has recently come to their own attention, supposing it to be new.

    You are really trying to equate MBB with FB?

    Maybe Bisonville sponsors a NIL contract for GN as our spokesperson. We need press, guys, and this is the ticket. Lakes can make the first donation.
    Insert something clever here...
