  1. So no locker rooms were put in HPC phase 1 or are we redoing something that was just built?
  2. Looks like even the NDSU guys think they get free rent.
  3. The thing is, we need other things a lot more than we need new locker rooms. The HPC needs phase 2, and coaches salaries need to be drastically increased, so that doesn't leave much for locker rooms. Obvious solution is renegotiate the deal with KEM but as a major donor she holds the high cards so not much we can do. I think you are wrong on NDSU paying rent too. It seems to me there was a post here earlier that said they get free rent for the Fargodome since NDSU gave the land to build on. That's their cash cow.
  4. Should we offer to gold plate his jock too right away? Come on, yes locker rooms need to be nice but don't need to some exotic looking place to inspire the players. Besides, we aren't USD. We don't trash the locker room when we lose.
  5. If a player can't win because he wants a nicer place to hang his jock, then he's not committed to the sport.
  6. 2018 Season

    The game against Sammy will be very telling for this team. If we intend to do anything this year, this is a must win. Sammy is the type of team we will be up against all through the playoffs, so need win here and keep winning the majority of games after that.
  7. Ralph also announced in the papers that if the Sioux name was changed while the REA was still under construction he would cut the utilities and just let the place let empty and half finished. That should have been enough of a lesson for anyone at UND to remember not to alienate anyone named Englestad.
  8. So none of this is tied to the original donation agreement 20+ years ago?
  9. The premise was for the benefit of UND but that still doesn't make a legal case to change what UND willing agreed to over 20 years ago. It's a lousy agreement, don't get me wrong, but can't really be changed IMO without full agreement from the Englestad family. Maybe they should have asked for advice from the law school before agreeing to the terms.
  10. Apparently in the rush to get the donation a lot of things were overlooked and I'm sure Kupchella wanted to keep Ralph content. The thing is, the contracts were signed to get the REA and no amount of litigation is going to change this. All Kennedy is doing is alienating our biggest donor. As bad as this deal is, we can't win by trying to change it now. Seriously, if you were the Englestad's, would you let UND out of this deal? I'd say you wouldn't.
  11. North Dakota "ALL DI TEAM"

    Five years ago we said the same thing about Bubba being our savior. It's not just about the people you hire, it's more about the program, but I don't have the answers either. Remember NDSU lost most of their coaches and they still kept on winning.
  12. North Dakota "ALL DI TEAM"

    Equally as bad is the fact that Kenny Golladay was only here one year. I just cringe when I think about what could have been.
  13. 2019 UND Recruiting

    It will be if a bunch of them are commits in 6 months. The work is far from over, in fact it's just beginning.
  14. UND Budget Cuts

    Looks like he gets a $50,000 bonus just for staying there. Looks like a huge raise to me.
