  1. New AD posting and hiring process

    So, MM is just a no . . . WMU guy doesn't seem to move the needle. Chaves was just on WDAZ with one of the most ridiculously poor fitting suits that I can remember. Just ruined it for me. So . . . It has got to be the lady from UTSA, right?
  2. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    What is weird is the structure of this entire article. I had read it earlier and saw that they say: "If picking an All-Showcase Team in terms of top Division I prospects, the nod goes to forwards Justin Pearson, Shane Pinto and Azzaro Tinling . . . " Then in the scouting report further down that you included, they rag on him a little bit. Do they mean they picked the all-showcase team before the tournament. Not that they picked it based on the performance at the tournament? Are they saying though he is essentially one of the top prospects there, he just didn't perform as well as expected in this particular viewing?
  3. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    Agreed, it disappoints me to no end that instead of getting diverse restaurants (we still don't have an Indian restaurant and are just now getting a Vietnamese one), we have seven Subways, 5 McDonalds, etc. Getting a new franchise is only slightly better.
  4. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    (In general) Kneeling is not an intent to disrespect, the large majority of them are not protesting the anthem or the flag and have repeatedly stated that. We could have a discussion about why they should or shouldn't kneel, but it is disingenuous when people project their own reasoning onto protestors actions. It is actually commandeering their protest for one's own means, which subjectively is just as disrespectful. Note: I don't think that you (Frozen) specifically have crossed that line but others have. Personally, I think the linking arms or kneeling BEFORE the anthem were good compromises and attempts to get the point across without letting the "disrespect for the flag" narrative overshadow it . However, one could say that if your arms are linked then your hand is probably not over your heart. However, a good number of people didn't put their hand over their heart in the first place and it was never a problem. I do stand for the anthem when in person (I actually don't while watching TV and never really thought about that until recently) and I do yell Sioux . . .
  5. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    He sang Oh, Canada at the MLB All-star game a couple years ago. Just like Mark though, he sings it straight, doesn't drag it out, doesn't try mess with it, just nails it 40 times a year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muBWWwhVCQ4&feature=youtu.be
  6. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    Three best anthems on the planet: 1. Leo Welsh 2. Mark J Lindquist 3. That kid from Ottawa
  7. NORTH DAKOTA vs. St Lawrence

    I think they just mean that someone mentioned that Mismash and Kawaguchi were scratched, not really an elaborated story about it. Regarding them sitting, I think that sometimes as a young player, seeing the game from above the ice can be good for you too. Might not necessarily be strictly about performance, but also about the opportunity to see the game.

  10. Miami , Oh

    I lived just north of Miami for a few years, so when the national launched I started making regular trips to Oxford for the games (and to Columbus to watch the women play OSU). Look around at the flights: CVG (Cincinnati airport in Newport Kentucky) is the closest and there is some fun stuff to do around there before heading to campus OR DAY (Dayton) sometimes has better prices. Though campus is pretty sweet that's pretty much all there is in Oxford is campus. Note: You can fly frontier from Bismarck to Cincy . . . probably really cheap. I generally found tickets not so easy to get as the rink is really small and though they may not always show up, the season ticket holders take up a bunch. Standing room only tickets can get you in the door, and towards the end of the first the ushers will actually direct you to an open site (as of two years ago anyway). But I would definitely try grab tickets of some sort ahead of time. I bought tickets from a Sioux fan who donated money to MU in order to get presale access to the tickets, so take them when you can get them. Note: the arena is dry
  11. Improving the game day experience

    Yeah, they were doing the oversized Q-tip "jousting." We had some wooden horses/giraffes/unicorns on the other side of the lot for racing that we brought over. Were going to "sit" on them and try joust but the line and crowed around the jousting pit was a little crazy.
  12. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    Sorry, if I sounded too dickish, I didn't mean to . . . re-reading my comment I might have.
  13. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    All time point record is a little misleading; it is only four years. Also, his team was the worst in the league . . . he had seven points in their last game and they still lost (to the second worst team in the league).
  14. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    So "we" win Bantam Elite league, two uncommitted ggf players get honors. Has anyone seen Helgeson or Parker play?
  15. Indian nicknames in the news

    No, I am saying that neo-Nazis are built on a platform of prejudice. Black Lives Matter is a movement for equality; though there are some racist, hateful people in it, the movement is not founded in or based on it. If I start a murder club that would be bad. If two people in your book club murder someone, the book club is not necessarily bad . . . the murderers are. If my murder club is treated with more disdain than your book club, that's not a double standard. I think the most precise definition of a double standard is the application of different sets of principles for similar situations. The situations are not similar. Regarding the last part of your message .......obviously, according to me, you have no idea what I am saying. I wasn't even trying to argue with you, just noting there is a difference between some bad people and a bad institution. I thought you were just being hyperbolic, maybe you aren't, maybe you really think they're the same. Your response where you negatively imply that I think race defines someone's heart though is just plain inflammatory.
