  1. Facilities Master Plan

    It's one possible idea in a 30-year planning cycle. This is why it's tough to do business in the public sector. Folks glom on to one possibility (in some cases the most extreme) and act like it's the only option and that the decisions are already made and set in stone. As an open government proponent, I wouldn't have it any other way. But it sure is a challenge to appear like you're a well-oiled machine just humming along when the whole world gets a peek at how your sausage is made. This is why there's a perception that corporations and private colleges do things better .... they have the same issues, they just get to keep it behind closed doors.

    In a better location, too!
  4. 2017 Season

    Ran into Coach P awhile back, and per usual, was excited for the upcoming season. Talked about a new recruit coming in from Finland (TBA later this spring) who will be another solid addition. He loves it here.
  5. UND sports

    The following is a short except from a much longer article, which appeared a few weeks ago in the university’s online magazine —UND Today, about UND’s most recent financials report to the NCAA (it addresses some of the cost cutting and what has been done with those savings): Then, last year, UND Athletics had to reduce its overall budget by $1.3 million to adjust for $700,000 in one-time NCAA distributions that would not be replicated and as part of University-wide cuts brought on by falling oil and agricultural prices and decreases in state funding. The resulting Academic Year 2018 budget of $21.9 million reflects funding from ticket sales, contributions, student fees, and $6 million in institutional support. This belt-tightening resulted in the elimination of women’s hockey and men’s and women’s swimming and diving, whose total budgets in the Athletics Department were $2.3 million. That didn’t mean, however, that UND Athletics all of a sudden was awash with freed-up cash. Last year’s restructuring anticipated reinvesting about $500,000 of those savings in new scholarships in eight remaining programs (women’s golf, women’s and men’s tennis, women’s and men’s track and cross country, and softball), both maintaining UND’s strong record for gender-equity compliance and enhancing the competitiveness of those programs. Another $200,000 was used to offset increases in scholarship costs, and $100,000 covered increases in health insurance for Athletics Department employees. Also, about $175,000 was needed for contracted salary increases to retain coaches and assistant coaches with proven track records. These financial moves leave UND with a stronger, more competitive athletics program and will be reflected in UND Athletics’ FY18 NCAA report, due at this time next year.
  6. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    So what’s your concern, then? Seems relatively harmless.
  7. Next Season

    Yes he did.
  8. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Did we really? According to many on here, UND is going to hell in a hand basket on greased skids.
  9. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    True. Folks are going to believe what they want to believe. And the paper of record has done a pi$$ poor job getting these things right. But, you know, sensational sells.
  10. UND to cut women's hockey

    I love it when Jeff Dodson tweets about former UND baseballers and what they’re up to. But the update tweets on WIH always seem to be dripping with ulterior motive.
  11. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Because he works their a$$ off and holds them accountable. Novel concept in the public sector.
  12. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    He’d bolt for $1.3M and the Sunshine State in a heartbeat, too, given the chance.
  13. UND to cut women's hockey

    I think you all are making the point just fine, but to put it another way: those former UND players that BS tracks should thank their lucky stars they cut WIH at UND, because it allowed them to transfer into either one of the traditional Big 2 in the WCHA the real reasons UND never could make it) or to a team in a weaker conference where they actually have a chance to play in the tourney. Bottom line: UND's inability to be a top 2 team in the WCHA kept these players out of the tourney. And coaching, it sounds like.
  14. UND (10-18, 5-11) @ SAC (6-23, 3-13) 3/1 9 PM

    Looked better at the line, too.
  15. School of Communication to be dissolved

    Moser, are you that crank on KNOX Radio who calls in under the pseudonym ”UND in 3 years guy”?? Your rants on here are awfully similar to his on the radio. Dude, UND is a big organization with lots of moving parts. Things are not the same as they were in 2008. Some things are worse off, others are far better off, and still others don’t exist at all anymore, for better or for worse. Such is the evolution of a big public organization that thrives or struggles depending on the prices of oil and wheat, and that has a transient population that moves on every 4-6 years. It’s been changing since 1883. Ever hear the old saying “you can’t go home again”? Dynamic organizations like colleges and cities are not static. They change — constantly. So please spare us the threads from 2008, and in the immortal words of Aaron Rodgers: “R-E-L-A-X.” Just because the grass always looks greener on the other side doesn’t mean it necessarily is.
  16. Olympic Hockey

    Damn! With her, we might have had a chance at 2nd place in the WCHA now and again instead of alternating between third and fourth every year, depending on what kind of a season UMD was having.
  17. Olympic Hockey

    First Olympics in the Golden Age of web streaming and cord cutting —is a real killer.

    Frickin’ Rudolph!!!!! Oops! Wrong thread.
  19. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Sure, I guess. It’s a product of capitalism ....work your butt off and prove yourself, when opportunity arises, seize it.
