  • I don’t have much positive things to say about the 2021 Mavericks. Yesterday (especially in the first half) was absolutely embarrassing. 3 straight home losses at the Blake is embarrassing and inexcusable. I truly hope this is just a fluke season and that they are simply rebuilding for a season we are used to seeing.

    This is a very HOT take but if this were a D1 school and the team performs like this next season, Hoffner SHOULD be on the hot seat. Maybe I’m overreacting but right now I’m seeing a bunch of Mavericks play like they want to pack up and finish the season to get it over.

    • Question for Mav fans:

      When is the last time that the last home game was played in October? It has to be quite a while back.

          Good job- thanks! I remember that big Thursday night game with Augie that was televised.

            So...unless there are two Anonio Alzheimers that are 19 years old running around Mankato, this is likely #20 for the Mavs. Good stuff for a good season. Is it 2022 yet?? :)

              I think that is a safe bet. I was just saying Friday night at the Senior Recognition night that fortunately we haven't had a lot of off field problems lately.

              • Any chance SMSU gets its first ever win over Mankato? Mankato finally having a down year and we don't have our usual firepowe, especially at QB

                SMSU is 0-18. Almost won in Mankato when Thielen was a senior. SMSU was ahead midway through the 4th quarter and suddenly Thielen took over. That was year. Dang

                  Likely not. Mavs are certainly down, but I’d be beyond surprised if the Mustangs won. Even in a year like this one.

                    That’s still true. This one doesn’t make “a lot”. But it’s still unfortunate.

                      MSU 58-10 over CU, MSU 58-0 over UIU, MSU 68-10 over MINOT. SMSU is better than those teams.

                        Think he gets boated off the team?

                          Perhaps, but likely not directly. Suspended, yes.

                          He came in as a FR transfer from Central Missouri. Perhaps next year he’ll find himself at his 3rd school.

                            Hot seat..? They were in the chip in the last season D2 was played. Semis typically otherwise, etc.

                            This type of rebuild should've been easy to see coming....with all that was lost on D, then an immediate injury to the top pass rusher returning, and the mainstays on offense finishing out their careers in '19 also. Most of us figured they'd just reload, but in retrospect that sounds a lot easier than it's accomplished.

                            Was Hoffner on the hot seat in 2016 after that down year? I don't recall that chatter. This was a down year, for sure..but plenty of guys like Charles Coleman, Sleezer, Ekern (QB), Sample, and others have emerged and the Mavs should be setup to be a top squad in future years with those players at skill positions. The Mavs OL didn't control things this year..so they'll need to get things right there..but the pieces are there for success next season. This year they had to figure things out.

                            I don't think Hoffner and his staff are on the hot seat in the slightest. This isn't D1, first off....and furthermore, he's been at the controls during recent unprecedented success for this program.

                              Whatever it means, I'd be interested in the boating process. ;-)

                                I believe he is under contract until 2024 (correct me if I’m wrong). I was pointing out to next year if mavs struggle like this but yes I am aware this isn’t D1 so coaches have a longer leash. When I made that post the emotions were getting the best of me because nothing pisses me off more when players are playing uninspired. I knew they wouldn’t be as good as 2019 but I wasn’t expecting a drop like this. I’ll also give credit to the other teams for playing well.. with the increased scholarship numbers for each team the league got better as well. Looking back I put way too much stick into the returning linemen and the FBS transfers… which some have played well and some have not. There are some young players that look promising and from what I heard the incoming recruiting class looks strong again. I’m just not used to seeing the Mavericks struggle but it reminds me that I should be thankful for how successful they’ve been as a program. But if they struggle again next season, then I think more supporters of mav football will get frustrated and more impatient.
