    Would he want to? Head coach at DIII national champion John Hopkins might be a much better gig than the NDSU job. Might be more difficult with the higher admission requirements, but has to be easier than skipping over players in your region and trying to recruit players from other parts of the country to play at NDSU.

    John Ross might have been a good option as well a couple years ago, but pretty sure he's done coaching.

    No idea if he would want to and I agree with being able to recruit much more regionally at John Hopkins. I know he still has lake property near here and he has a large family that mostly still live in the area.

    Past decade of conference finish and records:
    2013- 3rd 4-3
    2014- 4th 4-2-2
    2015- 1st 7-0-1
    2016- 1st 5-2-1
    2017- 3rd 5-2
    ====Mike Regan Hired====
    2018- 3rd 6-2
    2019- 3rd 4-2-2
    2020- 5th 7-8-1
    2021- 8th 3-6
    2022- 5th 4-5
    2023- 8th 0-2-4 (Current standings, 2 games left for NDSU and 3-4 for most other Summit teams)

    Looks like Mark Cook's recruits kept the program going for two years and now has been depleted of whatever mojo they had to finish near the top of the conference.

    And now we see why only one point vs three points in the UND game was so important. UND knocks off ORU today and jumps over NDSU. NDSU now is in last place in the conference with game remaining against #4 USD and #1DU.

    Hoping for a miracle finish to the season, but it's looking like the worst season in decades.

    Do you think we're we looking at a "dead man walking" type of situation?

    Possibly, but doubtful with women's soccer not being a higher profile sport. I can't think of another sport that's taken such a quick and consistent fall under the current AD. A bad year here or there maybe, but not leaving the top half of the conference and now finishing in the bottom half or last/near last place consistently.

    Bison drop the last road game 2-1 to USD. Looks like they were generating shots and had mire, but not enough finding the back of the net.

    Next up #1 in SL Denver to finish out their last hope for a lone conference win for the season.

    Great win over Denver but it looks like it will be too little, too late as UMKC is leading USD 2-0 at time of posting.

    Wish I could have watched the game. Wondering if it was the Bison playing well or Denver letting off the gas with a top 2 spot secured.
    Good fight to finish the season, but looks like 7th in the Summit is the best they can hope for. Need to have some wins against the bottom of the Summit to make it out of the bottom.

    Congrats to Abby Wilkinson- wins the Summit League GK of the year award along with First Team All-Summit League.

    Wilkinson was the only Bison on the Summit First, Second, or Honorable Mention teams this season.

    Congrats to Amaya Garrett who was named to the Summit League All-Newcomer team.

    In Summit playoff news, SDSU takes care of business to move on to the Summit Final along with Omaha who took down Denver 3-2 in penalties after a 2-2 tie (2OT).
