    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Nor should we ever join that conference.

    Ralph donated the arena to benefit UND and UND athletics.....NOT to make money for himself. The problem is, he is dead and his entitled only child is trying to screw UND over any way she can.

    This sounds like a clear and concise argument to move back down to Division II. No thanks.

    I loved this show as a kid!

    This inane idea that each program should have to sustain itself with its own revenues has to die. It is NOT how intercollegiate athletics works and it likely never will work that way. And this approach will assure that we will continue to wallow in mediocrity for the foreseeable future. Just sayin'.......

    She brought it on herself by lying to the Heraldo, dragging contract negotiations into the open and acting like a diva. You can feel sorry for her, I will not.

    Well said, my friend. Thank you for saying it so articulately. I let my emotions take over on this issue and it doesn't come out right. We need to think outside the box when it comes to athletics fundraising. We need to get creative when it comes to raising money for FB, MBB, WBB and all the other sports we have not cut. And yes, that means "spending other people's money", but it will be money that those people VOLUNTARILY gave to UND athletics to make us stronger as a program. That is how intercollegiate athletics is funded today. If people have a problem with that, then they should rethink their own support for these programs. The Athletic Department, the Alumni Association and others should get together and figure out how to do this. Otherwise, we should just move back down to D-II and the NSIC. PS: Once September 2030 comes around, we should hire the firm that runs the Alerus Center to run REA. And make sure KEM has absolutely nothing to do with how the arena is run or who gets what sum of money each year.

    This is not a totally insignificant concession. I still think REA has no business getting its grubby little hands on FB revenue, since FB doesn't play in either arena.

    Where should we build KEM's throne room? Down the hall from Kennedy's office so he can run any and all decisions by her first? (sarcasm) Hope all you REA brown-nosers are happy.

    Wonder if REA is getting more of the FB revenues too? #whenitrainsitpours (sarcasm)

    Sounds like the same old crap to me. All hail Queen KEM.

    Agreed 1000% That arena is one gigantic cash machine. The idea that UND is getting all there is to get simply does not make sense.

    Oh, okay. Sorry about the mix-up. I do think Jones is coaching for his job right now, but an immediate change is not in the cards.

    I don't think I was calling for heads in my post. I was pointing out the acceptance of mediocrity that has crept into the culture of the athletic department. Last year, with the exception of Volleyball, was dismal across the board. I am hoping Chaves doesn't give contract extensions like candy on Halloween the way Faison did. Also.......I cannot help it if facts are sometimes negative.

    Be careful, you'll be accused of "spending other people's money" (sarcasm) While NDSU makes waves, UND makes excuses. Sad, very sad.
