  1. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Like I said earlier, I have no opinion on this subject until I hear both sides. I’m not arguing your opinion on Kennedy, I was simply pointing out my experience as well as information that I am involved in regarding his attitude towards major UND donors. Please respect my opinion before jumping up the conclusion that I’m relaying “garbage” information. That said, everyone has their views, some bias some not, and this article (if mostly true) aligns directly as to how Kennedy is acting towards other donors. This may lead to more stories/experiences UND Donors have dealt with. Or it may not. Regardless, I understand and respect your viewpoint as it seems that you have had personal interactions with him. Mine and obviously others have had different experiences. You dig?

    This isn't information from "second third hand garbage". I stated I PERSONALLY know of the way he treats donors. He is a bully.
  3. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Don't have an opinion on it until I hear both sides of the story. What I do personally know is Kennedy is destroying relationships with UND donors, not only the englestad family, but the richards family as well. He tried going behind the richards family's backs in the sale of the golf course land money. Didn't communicate what he would use the $$ for, not what richards family intended, pissed off the family, now kennedy may be in legal trouble for it. Just another example of Kennedy and the donor relationship he has been ruining. ALso, most faculty at the Alumni Foundation is scared to speak up against him in anything, says he's a bully. While i think Kennedy does some things right, he still is doing things wrong. Tough job.
  4. Things to do in GF

    Creating a more vibrant Downtown. That's what Bergum wants and GF is delivering. Alerus Financial proposing to replace their existing location (express) and having a new branch located in this building. Neat.

    Hope they book Hairball again for next year! I've seen them before last Saturday's concert and knew they wouldn't disappoint. Boy was it busy! I think the large attendance was due to students still here (spring fest), nice weather, and the fact it's just a bit early for the weekend lake people to head out of town. If they could figure out something along the river bank for next year that would be interesting. Even better, bring it back to U park! HA
  7. UND Budget Cuts

    Why haven't we heard anything on the Men's Golf program? It seems to be a topic nobody has information on, nor does the athletic department or anyone here at siouxsports even talk about. It all seems very bizarre to me. To my understanding, the team needed to raise their own endowment, something along the lines of $4 million. How is that fundraising going? I haven't seen a FundMe page on it or anything! I'm curious if Chaves will want to take on the heat of some alumni following through with the cutting of golf if the money is not raised. It was not his decision, so I understand that he has no blame here, but no AD wants to have cutting sports programs in their reputation.
  8. Spring Ball 2018

    Any hearings on how heidelbaugh is transitioning from QB-WR? My guess is he will be used for short routes/blocking due to his lack of speed. I hope we see some action from him in the game tonight!
  9. New AD posting and hiring process

    Bill spoke at the CC reception last night. Very impressed with his communication skills and he talked to many donors and student-athletes. Seems to be miles ahead of our previous AD. Great things to come in the future for UND athletics!

    If you had some sources for all the non-sense you type then maybe we'll start respecting your posts

  13. NORTH DAKOTA @ Bulldogs - FRIDAY Gameday

    here's an outrageous over-reaction after tonight's loss: when are berry's recruits going to start showing up? at what point does berry start getting questioned..
  14. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    Things I've tried in the past couple of months: Crooked pint- been there twice, one night they have a classic burger deal w fries for around $8 or $9. Will go back more for the rotating tap beers Vinyl Taco- went there first time last week- very impressed! Service was great, food was incredible, and groovy music. Definitely visiting again Chik-fil-a - didn't blow my skirt off. went thru the drive thru couple times. one time it was a 25 min wait and they were out of regular buns? lol Also had the brunch at Rhombus Brewery and was not impressed although their dinner/lunch menu never disappoints Need to check out the new sickies location
  15. NORTH DAKOTA @ Huskies - FRIDAY Gameday

    wow.. UND at 4 on PK with 83 penalties.. very good improvement there. Also give credit that St. Cloud went 0/7 on their own Olympic sheet, where they normally get 1 or 2 PP goals at home
