  1. What do you think of the logo now??

    My kids all bought t-shirts. Some said Fighting Hawks and some just said North Dakota. They were sad to see Fighting Sioux gone, but we have moved on.

    Fitted. Got it at Sheels for about $20.

    Went to GF and had to buy a hat.
  4. Where to stay in Grand Forks

    If you have enough people that you would need two hotel rooms, this works better for us. The deposit gets reimbursed, so the only thing you are looking at is the standard rate plus tax and the cleaning fee.
  5. Where to stay in Grand Forks

    Since the first VRBO that we went to was booked for our recent visit to GF, we stayed at a new one in the Aspen Lofts. Great place and has an amenities building. We were so busy that we didn't get to take advantage of that part, but the unit was great. If you are going to stay in GF for a few nights, I recommend this place. https://www.vrbo.com/999868

  7. Arbor Park

    i didn't know that. I am going to GF later this summer. I will have to check it out.
  8. Arbor Park

    Since I have not lived in Grand Forks for about 25 years, I had to pull up Google Maps/Street to get an idea of where all of this was. i don't know the names of all these little pocket parks, but I now know where Arbor Park is. If Google Street is any indication on the popularity of the park, I would say it is dead. There is no one in it. Granted I don't know what time the picture was taken, but the coffee shop at the corner seemed to have some business and the park next to the coffee shop (where Benners, the greatest hobby shop in history used to be) had people sitting in it. So we are talking about a downtown park that, from the sounds of it, is under utilized, being turned into a mixed use development project; while there is acres of park by the river two blocks away. I think most cities would love to have something similar to the Greenway. Pocket parks are nice, but you need development, as well.

    http://abcnews.go.com/ Nashville is a great and beautiful city and it sounds like America is finding that out.

    Was it like this.... ?
  11. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Someone posted this map over at http://csnbbs.com/thread-818307.html 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.
  12. Merrimack College as example

    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... https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/investigations/01106001-a.pdf 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.... https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/investigations/01106001-b.pdf 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.
  13. 2017 Season

    There was a time about 10-12 years ago that the FU fans were envious of UND tailgating. Time to make that happen again.
