  1. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    He's missing on too many recruits. He has far too many players leave after one or two seasons. It's a sign that the staff is not evaluating talent appropriately. Also, I'm going to get ripped for this but Poole's situation could have been handled differently. I'm sorry but every football team in the country has players that occasionally smoke marijuana. Hell it's legal in his home state. It's a football team not the church choir.
  2. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    True. The coaching staff is 100% culpable with this. This is Bubba's 4th season. There is zero excuse for the lack of depth and for how this team is executing. Injuries are part of the game and you need to have the depth to overcome them.
  3. Gameday: F'N Hawks vs Bobcats

    I think the seniors are a big part of the problem. This team is once again not ready to play. It looks as though there is no leadership in the locker room whatsoever.
  4. Gameday vs USD

    This game and the season so far reminds me a lot of the 2002 team unfortunately. That team came in with extremely high expectations, had key injuries early that made us extremely young at LB and DB, and also to be frank had an unfocused offseason after the national championship, and approached too many games with an attitude that we just had to show up to win. We were beat down at home by Central Washington early in the season, didn't beat anyone who was any good (UNC, UNO) but did beat NDSU, SDSU, and USD who were all terrible that season. We also lost games to Mankato and Augustana who were far less talented than us. We finished at 5-6 and the upcoming offseason the coaches pushed us as hard as any offseason during my career there. It was the type of offseason that could have made or broken the program. Fortunately, it re-focused the team and we were playing for a national championship again in 2003. I hope I'm wrong on this but there are just too many similarities right now.
  5. Memorial Stadium

    Why do the Lamoreaux twins get to tell private donors what to do with their money? They are not that important.
  6. One Week Later

    It's pretty bull$%!# that he's leaving out targeted gifting (Champion's Club, etc.) which is a large amount of the direct institutional support. I'm sorry but if I give the school a $1,000 for the right to purchase hockey/ football tickets then that revenue doesn't exist if they cut athletics. I know that doesn't fit in Rob's never-ending quest to prevent others from pursuing athletic activity (in hopes that they will all join him in his morbid obesity) but that's just a fact.
  7. UND to cut women's hockey

    Then UND should go with the Sicatoka approach. Basically say that due to the state legislature, ND doesn't have enough funds to clear the roads or to prevent home bound old people from starving in their houses (Meals on Wheels cuts) so it doesn't have enough money to finance women's hockey.
  8. UND to cut women's hockey

    UND really doesn't need to do anything. People overestimate the effectiveness of a social media campaign. The Lammy twins aren't even coming up with a plan to help defray the costs. They are going to tweet and facebook about it and somehow that's supposed to convince UND to cut $2 million in costs someplace else.
  9. President Kennedy Message on Athletics

    I don't get why you think UND would generate revenue out of this. The market that you keep citing as a potential market for players and fans (MSP) just had a professional lacrosse team fold only two years ago (the Swarm). If they can't make it cash flow, why would a program at UND be any different? Like women's hockey, there is a reason that most institutions won't touch lacrosse with a ten foot pole. There is no market there.
  10. President Kennedy Message on Athletics

    And causes facility problems because it would play in the HPC and kick football back outside for spring ball.
  11. UND to cut women's hockey

    That's sort of how life works. Most things worth accomplishing are difficult to accomplish. It's difficult to win a championship in these sports because tens of millions of people are invested in and care a great deal about them. That's just not the case with women's hockey. It's easier for UND to win a championship and produce Olympians for the exact same reason why 290 people show up for playoff games. There just are not that many people who care about it.
  12. Great effort by this team tonight. I have to say they represented the school well and I'm proud of them. Arizona has a ton of talent, so it will be interesting to see how they do in this tournament. They definitely are capable of beating anyone in the tourney, though I can see how they'd frustrate the hell out of their fans at times.
  13. As March 6 Looms ...

    I know I'm going to get flamed for this but has it occurred to North Dakotans that they could avoid this boom/ bust cycle if they'd pay higher state income tax rate than 2.9%? At what point does the state government just admit that there is a base level of services that North Dakotans desire (universities that function, highways without potholes, etc.) and then come up with a plan to raise that revenue that isn't entirely dependent on the price of a volatile commodity?
  14. Moo U diaries

    It's looking like he's going to lose the popular vote by 2 million votes and in his first 9 days he's appointed a white nationalist as his chief strategist, an Islamophobe who most in the national security establishment view as a likely Russian spy as his national security advisor, and had a surrogate go on TV and cite the internment of Japanese citizens during WWII as a good historical precedent for setting up a national registry of Muslims. It seems like the concerns of these protestors are much more legitimate than a bunch of white guys taking over a wildlife refuge because they don't want to pay grazing fees.
  15. Bartels or Heidelbaugh?

    Bartels has won before at UNC... I think you'd have to give him the start if called.
