  1. Someone posted this map over at Really gives some perspective on the great divide between east and west. I still say, if Douple is wise, he will be thinking about getting UNC and starting Summit football. It would protect the autobids and solidify the conference. I also believe that UNI would jump ship at some point and join the Summit. It would not happen for a while, due to the money and perceived strength in the MVC, but they will come. UNC gets beat up on a lot of the forums for under performing since transitioning to Division I. Maybe what they need is to get back with their old NCC buddies. While Greeley is often put down, it is a growing metro with potential. I am in construction and do projects with Hensel Phelps, one of the larger general contractors in the country, and they are based in Greeley.
  2. I went to the US Education OCR website to review any similar cases to UND. Typing hockey into the search, the first hit was Merrimack college. Here are the findings of the complaint... Merrimack had a student population of 52.6% men, 47.4% women and athletic opportunities at 65.2% men and 34.8% women. This reflected as a significant disparity (12.6%) and Merrimack agreed to the following.... I don't believe they will find a "significant disparity" at UND. I am thankful that Kennedy/Faison had the foresight to get legal representation on board from the beginning.
  3. There was a time about 10-12 years ago that the FU fans were envious of UND tailgating. Time to make that happen again.
  4. Didn't there used to be a Valley Dairy in 314 Cambridge. My sister used to have nicknames for all of the Valley Dairy locations... Carton Dairy, Mission Dairy.. She called this location Alley Dairy.
  5. Why is this any of our business? Let him play football and get an education without questioning his motives.
  6. What are UND's obligations moving forward in regards to the Summit and MVFC? Has UND signed papers obligating UND to those conferences legally? Has UND made payments? If the Summit blows up, can UND fall back to the Big Sky?
  7. Hutchison's Kelley Ragan signs with University of North Dakota I love this part...
  8. To maintain the basketball autobid, you will need to bring in another baseball playing school to replace Omaha. That is why on a recent post I advocated bringing in Northern Colorado. They could be travel partners with Denver. Although, I honestly don't know much about the relationship between UNC and Denver. Bringing in UNC also provides 6 schools paying football, which would allow for Summit football in the future.
  9. I started a thread about that topic over on egriz...
  10. With an I-29 based conference, maybe they can go back to calling it the Mid Continent Conference. I never have cared for the name Summit League. It sounds like a women's over 60 Tuesday night bowling league.
  11. if I were Douple, looking at the long term health of the conference, I would be exploring Summit football. If the rumors are true about Murray going to the MVC, is it possible that WIU would go to the OVC, as Murray's replacement? The conference has taken a shift westward, leaving WIU on an island of sorts. An island somewhat closer to the OVC footprint, Then you have the Indiana alphabet schools. Fort Wayne plays baseball. Could they be plucked by the Horizon? You need 6 for baseball and If WIU or Ft. Wayne leaves, you only have 5.
  12. With Sioux Falls becoming more of a hockey town with the Stampede, expanding the "Fighting Hawk" brand into Yote/Bunny territory is a good thing. Put the regional in Sioux Falls a few times, more Hawk fans.
  13. As I see it.... 1. UND is not part of the current MVC expansion conversation, nor should they be. 2. It would not be good for UND, if one or more of the other Dakota schools left the Summit, with UND just joining to cut travel expenses. 3. SDSU is the most attractive of the Dakota schools for potential membership, due to combination of geography, facilities and basketball history for both the men's and women's programs.
