  1. Carson and team whipped the Steelers today. He passed for over 300 yards and still doesn't have an interception on the season. Congrats to him, and his 3-0 record, regardless if he went to NDSU.
  2. New AD posting and hiring process

    Have qualifications been posted yet? Or will that be set by a commitee? Anyone know target dates for getting the proceas started?
  3. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    CWU is making plans for facility upgrades. The rump of the Big Sky will need more teams. Evergreen St has melted down, and CWU has seen an increase in enrollment of those trying to avert snowflake students and professors. http://www.dailyrecordnews.com/news/
  4. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Twitter reports the the CWU President wants to build up their facilities to FCS capacity for a CWU DI move. The Big Sky would have to split for that to be allowed.
  5. College Hockey Expansion

    A MAC-Horizon bus league is inevitable. Oakland, Toledo, Illinois St, and Buffalo are just a matter of time. Bowling Green badly wants out of the WCHA. The pieces are just about there.
  6. College Hockey Expansion

    Adding Ariz St and UNLV to the NCHC would cause WMU and Miami to leave. Net positive.
  7. New AD posting and hiring process

    Portland St just got a new AD from Willamette College, Jan 1st. Their old one high tailed it to Ga Tech to become a deputy assistant AD. An awful lot of AD turnover, especially on the side of the weaker or lesser financed Big Sky programs. The Portland St board seems pretty convinced that a Big Sky split will happen soon, so jdub and southpaw need to be posting there to give them their reassurances.
  8. New AD posting and hiring process

    It would be nice if Chaves could take Mannasau or some other UND person under his wings and gave him some real executive experience. Some AD's just want to hog all the pertinent experiences for themselves like often happens in corporations. Healthy organizations are always grooming internal people to eventually take over. In my mind, that has been a problem with UND leadership for more than a decade, as they are so intent on holding any power strings and vetoing leadership development. Look at the UNDEERC, the Business school, entrepreneurial school, the Law School and Kelley as examples. The Aerospace school seems to be an exception. Kennedy and Chaves should foster that development.
  9. New AD posting and hiring process

    Deanna Carlson-Zink, Steve Brekke, MM, and Valerie Sussex have in their job descriptions to raise money for the athletic department. An AD should only be an auxiliary help.
  10. New AD posting and hiring process

    Criticizing a comment again? Oh my word. Our negative Nellie strikes again.
  11. UND (5-11, 1-4) vs Weber (10-6, 3-1) 1/13 2 PM

    Drew over 2000 to the game. Nice turnout. Buchanan, Walters, and Brown seem to be delivering key minutes and points and Crandall seems to have got his rhythm back.
  12. New AD posting and hiring process

    Congrats Mr Chaves and best of luck. Know I'll be excoriated for this but big changes are coming to the Big Sky. My feelings is Chaves knew EWU couldn't hang with the Idaho, the Montanas, and UND when they split off. Weber St will take their place and Chaves already knows this, so he cut and ran to a better job. The fundraising job at EWU was just too much for FBS.
  13. Guess Fargo and Bismarck have so many sophiscated people that they would outdraw teams in NWPL cities like New York and Boston that have trouble drawing even 1000 fans a game to tiny rinks. http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nwhl-hockey-slash-salaries-1.3857931 Put your mony where you mouth is and invest in a Fargo NWHL team. Fargo would hit the big time finally.
  14. New AD posting and hiring process

    This article says WMU and GVSU are in an enrollment war, with GVSU winning even without DI athletics. http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2017/12/a_tale_of_two_schools_comparin.html
  15. UND women's hockey was such a shock for women's rights, second only to Crooked Hillary losing. Oh the humanity of it all!

  17. New AD posting and hiring process

    The new UTSA AD is formerly the AD at NAU. Talk about embarrassing for Elliot. She almost has to get a new job now. NAU doesn t have fan support or an endowment, yet has double the enrollment of UND.
  18. New AD posting and hiring process

    Since Porter claimed to hire P J Fleck to WMU, that is hard to top. Might as well coronate him now.
  19. NHL expanding to Seattle in 2014?

    Guess San Diego may get a new arena near Petco Park. San Diego and Houston could be on the backburner for an NHL team then.
  20. 2017 Season

    UND leads 2-0 against Chatty. Can follow the progress with statsbroadcast.com, which has a link via a UNDVb tweet
  21. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Western Illinois' fb coach has once again left for greener pastures. News conference tommorow. W Illinois will have to move to the OVC soon is my speculation
  22. List of the University of North Dakota's Richest Alumni

    Rink Burgum had over $60 million in Great Plains Software in 1997. That should be worth at least $250 million now, as Microsoft has reinvented itself as a cloud company.
  23. List of the University of North Dakota's Richest Alumni

    Newmont Mining bought Miramar Mining for $1.5 billion. Dave Fennell was a major shareholder, as he started Hope Bay Mining, which has significant gold holdings in the Nunavut Territory and was then part of Miramar.
  24. List of the University of North Dakota's Richest Alumni

    Where is B John Barry? Supposedly he has a net worth of over $1 billion. He was a former owner of multiple banks in Minnesota and Arizona until they were bought out by Norwest later Wells Fargo. Also owned a significant portion of Sun Country Airlines at one time.
