    Jerseys

    That is an amazing assortment. Truly a spectacular lot to win! Crazy that they didn't sort these items a bit better. Looking at the WWE shirt, I think you have some really good signatures that I can see from the single picture. It looks like HHH, Kurt Angle, Sgt Slaughter, Teddy Long, Marianna. Those first three are certainly great signatures. That might also be a Shawn Michael's autograph to the right of HHH, but it's kind of hard to see. This link from the event might help you identify some other signatures. http://prowrestling.wikia.com/wiki/August_16,_1999_Monday_Night_RAW_results

    UND to cut women's hockey

    I would think that NDUS could certainly counter for attorney fees, which could get high if this goes to court. I'm wondering if non-students even have standing to bring the case and maybe that's why NDUS was targeted. Seems like this case will be tossed by a judge before it goes very far.

    UND to cut women's hockey

    Hayduke, I appreciate your passion for hockey and willingness to play devil's advocate for the sake of discussion, but this answer has been stated several times. I'm sure we could have a good-natured debate about some of these and which apply to football, but here is the list as I see it. 1. Nearly $2 Million deficit per year 2. High cost per athlete ($80,000 per year/per athlete) 3. Extremely low attendance 4. Minimal public interest 5. Minimal Champion's Club related donations 6. Minimal merchandise revenue 7. Minimal TV exposure 8. Average on-ice results (Poor championship level results) 9. Limited local recruits 10. Low future growth potential

    UND to cut women's hockey

    IMO this is the most short-sighted part of filing this lawsuit. The only way that women's hockey is returning to UND is if UND decided to reinstate it. As has been mentioned several times, Title IX does not require that specific sports be offered. So in the event that NDUS (UND) lost the case, which they won't since they are Title IX compliant, there is no mechanism for a court to require that women's hockey be reinstated. If a school is found to be non-compliant with Title IX, they can just make adjustments to funding and resources of current sports. If any lawyers on the board see it differently, I would be very interested in your opinions.

    Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Based on what evidence? That Kennedy wants to revisit an agreement that is signed annually and potentially make it more beneficial to UND? What evidence do we have that McGarry is willing to move forward in good faith? We know she has lied regarding Kennedy's unwillingness to meet. BTW, I agree with you that McGarry is trying to get that message across. I just question her credibility.

    Fair Point. It's hard to believe that a compromise can't be reached in these negotiations.

    I don't think we have seen a quote from Kennedy saying anything along those lines. He doesn't seem to want to negotiate this publicly. The only references to Kennedy's unwillingness to work with McGarry have come from her. Based on the fact that she has already been caught in outright lies, I'm not sure she is the best source for what is actually happening behind closed doors. Like you, I hope this can be worked out. That being said, Kennedy needs to proceed in the best interests of UND.

    Or maybe UND could just select the floor design it prefers for The Betty and get a little better distribution of revenue generated from REA? Either or I guess.

    I'm going to assume something and I know that can be dangerous. My guess is that the University of Denver has chosen to use "Denver" rather than their logo of their own volition rather than having that choice dictated to them by the management of an arena.

    Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    I was never the biggest Red Pepper fan, but I decided to take my business elsewhere when I saw a Red Pepper billboard in Fargo that said "Go Bison". That was a bridge too far for me.

    I though maybe you were posting on a MN politics board at the same time.

    What's so frustrating about this article is the amount of conjecture required by those of us with limited knowledge of the situation. Why can't the Herald truly research the topic, ask the hard questions and supply the answers rather than writing an incomplete piece? You are right in asking for the local paper to do more.

    Sorry I'm confused. Who is Dayton?
