  1. 2017 Bracket Challenge

    Good point! I tried that last year and look what happened
  2. If Not Us, Then Who?

    You got a problem with 60 year olds? We had two national championships when I was a student (okay, it took seven years of being a student...) Oh, and I'd throw up in my mouth a little if I ever called the Sioux the Hawks, dammit there it goes, aagh!
  3. 2017 Bracket Challenge

    I am terrible at these things cuz I select winners based on emotion rather than intelligence, that is, I pick who I want to win. That said I agree with cowboys5xsbs!
  4. 2016 bracket challenge

    Well, my bracket is completely shot, but I am smiling. I think I may be on to something guys. I had BC and DU for the championship because I hate them both. Evidently I jinxed them!
  5. 2016 bracket challenge

    Was there only one game today? That's the impression one would get from the leaderboard.
  6. Why cant UND have a new nickname yet?

    The problem is, every time you wash a shirt the fibers wear out just a little more. Eventually our Fighting Sioux shirts will be little more than spider webs, especially if you have a wife who keeps washing stuff whether you threw it in the hamper or not!
  7. NCAA

    Wow, can't wait to see how this plays out.
  8. New Nickname

    A lot of good stuff on here. Too bad it has fizzled out in the last month. I still like just having DAKOTA on the uniforms, but as many have said, the NCfuqnAA will never let that be it.
  9. NCAA

    Watching the football pre-game last night. A guy dressed up as an Indian (presumably a Seminole) riding a horse comes on the field. The announcer says "don't you just love the pageantry and traditions of college sports?" Man, it just irritated me that we have been denied our traditions, but Utah and Florida State are ok! The hypocrisy of the NCAA! hy·poc·ri·sy /hɪˈpɒk rə si/ Show IPA noun, plural hy·poc·ri·sies. 1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess. 2. a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
  10. North Dakota Oil Industry

    Actually, there is potentially 400 billion barrels in the Bakken. That is nearly twice as much as in Saudi Arabia and 10 times as much as ANWR. It could last nearly 100 years using your estimate. As someone else said, they have unlocked the key to producing it through horizontal drilling, but the next challenge is getting it to the market. It has been estimated that in the next few years North Dakota will need 17,000 more workers for the oil field, but this generation of computer geeks doesn't want to get dirty. I say bring on the Texicans! From nextenergynews.com (02/13/08): Massive Oil Deposit Could Increase US reserves by 10x America is sitting on top of a super massive 200 billion barrel Oil Field that could potentially make America Energy Independent and until now has largely gone unnoticed. Thanks to new technology the Bakken Formation in North Dakota could boost America
  11. SiouxSports.com Bracket Challenge

    Well now, even though the list says I'm in 200th place or so, the way I see it I'm tied for seventh! Don't feel bad HeidiSioux. There are about a hundred of us in the same boat. Sioux gotta win cuz they're about the only team left on my bracket!
  12. Hey Kourna, welcome to the club. Unfortunately, the name Sioux will be history soon.

  13. Another discussion on the Sioux Nickname

    What I don't get about this is the fact that other "tribes" are allowing the use of their names (Utes and Seminoles to name two). Why do they not have the same perspective as Mako? I am of Scandinavian descent. Should I be upset when "Vikings" is used in a derogatory way? Yes, this isn't a race thing, it's a respect thing. No one should be using derogatory terms at an ahtletic event. It is not an issue of team name it's an issue of respect for your opponent.
