  1. Future Schedules

    If you really think UND is going back to Division II and into the arms of the NSIC, then you guys are way more arrogant and self-absorbed than I thought you were. Here are some facts for you: 1) Fargo is not Minneapolis. 2) UND is not going away. Now go on back to Bisonville and keep dreaming about the Big 12 and/or Big 10.
  2. Grand Forks Sales Tax Vote

  3. Grand Forks Sales Tax Vote

    I know Interstates have a minimum of 40 mph. We could have a minimum for our streets.
  4. Grand Forks Sales Tax Vote

    THIS!!!
  5. Grand Forks Sales Tax Vote

    Really? This is a true story. This isn't the Onion.
  6. Grand Forks Sales Tax Vote

    Anyone who votes no on this had better not have a problem endorsing THIS as the solution: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/07/us/omahas-answer-to-costly-potholes-go-back-to-gravel-roads.html #TANSTAAFL #civilizationworks
  7. New AD wish list

    Some people are upset that Lennon left just as our Division I transition period was starting. I have moved on from that and so should everyone else.
  8. New AD wish list

    I don't think Hakstol is going to take a pay cut to come back to Grand Forks.

    Personally, I don't give a rat's a$$ if he has a D or an R after his name, as long as he is doing his job. And so far, I can't complain too much regarding Kennedy.

    I think there is some value in having reporters that hold those in power accountable for what they do or don't do. That is in sharp contrast to the Forum's sycophantic slobbering over all things FU. I think there is a happy medium between dirt digging and a$$ kissing. The Heraldo is a little too close to the dirt digging side, but I don't think they are as bad as some people think.
  11. New AD wish list

    The Heraldo discusses some possible AD candidates: http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/4345162-national-search-underway-next-und-ad One name on this list that raises a red flag with me is Jody Hodgson. I am afraid we would go back to a hockey-only mentality with Hodgson in charge of the Athletic Department. Which is what some (special emphasis on some) people around here want. I don't know if Dave St. Peter knows enough about intercollegiate athletics. His management experience is a plus, however. I think the best choices on the above list are Josh Morton, Dale Lennon and Josh Fenton.

    Agree with this or not, I think Tom Miller makes a solid case that this retirement was not voluntary: http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/4345174-tom-miller-not-buying-it Things that make you go hmm.
  13. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    I believe Rumors Bar & Grill also runs buses to the games.
  14. 2017 Attendance

    Heck, I might have trouble getting my a$$ up for a 12:30pm kickoff.
  15. College Hockey Expansion

    We would end up being the Red Headed Stepchild of the B1G. They would take us to get to 8 teams, then treat us like dirt while they kiss Notre Dame's Irish a$$. And I just don't see them making the move worth our while in terms of $$$$$ and TV coverage.
  16. New AD wish list

    Don't bother trying to decipher his delirious rantings. The planet he lives on hasn't been discovered yet.
  17. Future Schedules

    Why not? We would have a solid chance of beating them. And an FBS win is an FBS win.
  18. October 2017 Announcement

    That's the problem, I don't see the snobs in the B1G agreeing to make it worth our while from a monetary standpoint.
  19. October 2017 Announcement

    Which means the idea is DOA.
  20. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    Well, my birthdate is May 13th, so putting down 43 is inaccurate. Boy, am I anally retentive!
  21. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Minnesota

    I am 43+ and I feel the same way. So many great games, so many great moments. The rivalry goes beyond the coaches and players to the fan base and even the media on both sides.
  22. October 2017 Announcement

    So you think everything is a zero-sum game? Elevating FB and MBB will NOT cause problems for hockey. #falsechoices #redherrings
  23. October 2017 Announcement

    That would be a B1G Mistake (pun intended).
  24. October 2017 Announcement

    The Buck Stops with the President. Not the AD.
  25. October 2017 Announcement

    My point is that the delay in moving up was caused by Kupchella, as he was in charge at the time.
