Congratulations Minot for making a great hire and for being decent human beings. The treatment Hoffner received from Mankato State and the local authorities was beyond horrendous. I am a new fan of Minot State.

MarkHighwater you are on the wrong page and have no class, see ya.

I was partial to Aldrich, although I think this is a good hire and know that many of the football players are happy about it which IMHO is what is important. I believe he will turn things around for the better. However, I think it will take 2 - 3 years so hopefully people are patient. Again, as I have stated before there is currently some talented players on the team as of right now. Let’s hope they are utilized to their full strength. In addition I know the majority of new HC clean house but it would be nice if Hoffner kept a couple of the coaches. Kittel would be a good OC coach. Heitkamp should be kept just for his commitment to Minot State. Obviously they have to interview well and buy into Hoffners ideas and I guess ultimately they have to want to stay.

Anyway,good luck Coach Hoffner here is to a new and exciting start to BEAVER football.
