    Default 2023 Season Thread

    Bison have another 3 home games remaining before the conference schedule begins. NoCo and Pine Bluff should be a couple Bison confidence boosters, while Creighton might be more comparable to the upper teams in the Summit. Creighton is currently 0-2-3 but played a fairly tough schedule so far with B1G, SEC, A10,and Big 12 opponents.

    I'd love to see SDSU's 5 game or Denver's 9 game winning streaks end this season.

    Currently sitting at 2-2-2 and 1-1 in exhibition games.

    Bison start conference play with a pair of ties and a loss at SDSU.

    RPI current for conference games.

    Would have been nice to pick up 3 pts vs KC. The next 3 games will be huge to hopefully pick up 7-9 points and get out of the bottom third of the conference standings.

    Bison with a draw at St. Thomas and a loss at Oral Roberts to end a 3 game 1 point total road trip. Any chance of making the Summit League tournament (top 6 of 9 teams) and a conference win now most likely comes down to the game vs UND this Sunday. 5 tournament spots are pretty much sewn up, but the #6 spot is still a possibility. A win would potentially give them enough points to move ahead of KC who still has to play Denver, Omaha, and both SD schools.

    Looked up RPIs of NDSU's Wins from 10/1- out of 347 teams:

    NDSU- 214
    Austin Peay- 304
    Coastal Carolina- 248
    NoCo- 328
    APB- 335

    I haven't been able to make any games this year, but am wondering if this is really poor recruiting or coaching causing this????

    It was the battle to the bottom of the Summit League, so there was plenty to pump up. A win would have placed NDSU in a very good spot to secure a Summit Tourney ticket.

    Bison now in 8th place and with a road game at USD and a home game vs Denver to finish the season. It's going to be extremely tough to gain enough points for a Summit Tourney spot (top 6 in the tourney, Denver currently #1 and USD #4).

    NDSU RPI currently at 234 and the 4 Draws are against the bottom half of the Summit.

    This one might be shaping up to be one of the worst. Have to go back to 1997 for a winless conference record and that was with a 4 team NCC.

    I would say at this point it's time for a coaching change. I don't know if Dan Weiler wants to come back to the area but he would be my top choice for next head coach.
