  1. UND Budget Cuts

    Slowly creeping up, we need ag economy to rebound.
  2. UND to Summit/MVFC

    I have not yet become a fan of commissioner Tom Douple, but do welcome him and the Summit office move from Chicago to Sioux Falls. Shows a little clout in the western U's of of the Summit.
  3. Destination hockey

    What we need from you gfhockey, is to break the news on a couple of blue chippas coming to UND!

    This thread is a full blown prairie fire. South Dakota is even helping, wow!
  5. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    If you get drafted soon after the 31st round and play with a chip on your shoulder, you're a Blue Chippa !

    So where does it show the annual $ spent to pay the bond on The Betty?
  7. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Ya, you are a good week ahead of the GF Herald. The real concern here seems to be understanding of the makeup of The Ralph (3 non-profit corps) and how it works with the UND AD. Strinden claims all $ stay within The Ralph and AD. Records show UND covers the AD's annual shortfall. Does The Ralph have funds set aside, can they pay more to the AD? Kennedy seems to be trying to get more funds transferred to AD, which probably would offset UND's $ given to the AD each year to balance their budget. In this case, these additional $ would probably not be available for any sport to spend? Maybe the bond taken out to build The Betty is paid off in 2020? More potential then.

    Just a taught here. If UND AD received a great majority of the FB ticket sales or even all of the about $.9M in total FB ticket sales, would it change the ability of more money to be spent on FB. Probably not, when FB would still outspend the money their program brought in. UND has been covering the shortfall in the AD in years past and this will be a large challenge for UND to do in the near future.

    The Betty bond being paid of in 2020 is great news, wonder what the annual payment is? After this final payment the 52% ticket take might be renegotiated? Anyone know what the % of ticket sales split was in place when The Ralph opened in the fall of 2001, that would have been before The Betty was built?
  10. 2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Kinda nice when a conference competitor of ours (especially one with the last conference title) loses a commit, but not all that good when the 0.0001 NCAA non-qualifiers are the crooks. I would have to say it must be tough being a Clown fan since NCAA 1st round loss and week later Motzko goes to their close neighbors, the Goofs. Almost feel sorry for their fans.

    I would say most posters and a large number of just viewers are slowly getting a lesson in The Ralph here! One of SS best threads.
  12. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    That was the draw, it was first just a beer bar, then added food & booze.

    Completing HPC phase II and higher salaries for the majority of coaches and assistants of all sports would be a big lift for UND athletics. The thing that bugs me the most about what I've learned on this thread is the bond taken out to build The Betty, then as it sounds (at least on here) The Ralph pays the bond. Be interesting to learn the details of this plan. Not much on here said about the concessions, parking, and etc. Could the largest bar in the state be actually paying for The Betty with all it's profit from those sales?

    Why change of location, maybe the rest of the Board of Directors will also be present? More to learn?

    Most U athletic departments across the country receive complaints from their alumni in that the financial reports are too complicated to understand. In our case, throw in a RE Arena, Inc. and it complicates things even more. This is a good educational thread for the fans. Hope the May 30th meeting in LV, NV brings more light to our athletics?
