  1. I'll update the links on the front page soon. Here are your traitors leaders: http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketleaders.php Here are the picks: http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracketpicks.php Until a surge very late today, it looked like UND wasn't even going to be the favorite, a rare occurrence here.
  2. My bad, bracket is open until sometime tomorrow afternoon! Try again.
  3. I think I have the bracket working. As usual, I'll start with a "soft launch", so take a look and let me know of any problems with either submission or the layout of the bracket (e.g. do the matches look right?) http://siouxsports.com/hockey/bracket.php Who will join the illustrious list below? 2016 UND1981 / stack / nhockey30 / ringneck28 / bigskyvikes (UND National Championship year) 2015 WiSioux 2014 johndahl 2013 FSSD/Brainerd Sioux 2012 mj3und 2011 tho0505 2009 Big A HG 2008 willtippen 2007 seanpc03 2006 teamsioux 2005 mynameiscuomo 2004 paul62/BigGreyAnt41/brew003/UP2SKI Edit- a previous draft of this post was up for about 30 seconds before I realized it wasn't ready and pulled it down. Sorry if you jumped in during that time to find a disabled save button, I think it's all working now.
  4. Spaten FTW. But I mostly jumped in for the discussion of Guinness at St. James Gate vs. U.S. They make it quite clear there should be absolutely no difference between a Guinness on draft there vs in U.S. It's all brewed there and should not change appreciably in a sealed keg over a few weeks. Unless you're in a hole in the U.S. with dirty lines and a two month old keg, it's the same. But no one likes to say that, because it makes their trip to Dublin less special The brewery is a destination unto itself, worthy of the pilgrimage, but the beer is the same.
  5. That's fake news. Sad.
  6. I updated the forum so logins are secure, like when you do online banking or shopping (for the techies, it now uses https for logins so your login information is encrypted during transmission). There's a small chance this might cause some people problems logging in, particularly with older browsers. Let me know if it does.
  7. Don't know how I missed this message. I created new versions of those tables/tools on the CollegeHockeyRanked site. I updated the links to point there. Sorry!
  8. Correct. Discussion of the coach's public performance in his job as a coach is on topic.
  9. Please stop with the personal attacks, keep it about the topic. Thanks.
  10. Alright, clearly there's a problem. I'm turning off automatic registrations for a while. Anyone who registers for a new account will require manual approval from me, which will create a bit of a delay. I hate to do it this time of year, so sorry for the inconvenience.
  11. Yep, thanks. The best way you all can help is when you see one pop up, hit the "report" button and that dispatches an email to all the mods. One of us is then able to jump on it pretty quickly.
  12. Yeah, there was a quick flood of new spambots. They can usually sneak a few through before the filters begin to catch them, but now they seem mostly contained. Sorry for the inconvenience.
  13. I personally wouldn't mind having a buy/sell/trade forum. But, normally we do such a thing when there's a problem with a topic dominating a forum, so we split it out into its own. I don't feel like the number of buy/sell/trade threads in any of the sports forums is overwhelming, and I think the people who participate in the buy/sell/trade threads in the hockey forum actually appreciate the increased traffic it gets from being in that forum. That's my one concern with just giving it a shot, is if we forced the sale threads into a separate forum would the decreased traffic harm them? I don't have a strong opinion on this, that's just my gut reaction.
  14. Yep, let's all keep the discussions about the topic and not personal details of other posters. Thanks!
  15. Ok, I updated the feed URL. New stories should flow in shortly. I'll check on it again tomorrow.
