I mentioned some of this yesterday in another thread, but much more appropriate here.
It's been 18 years since NDSU has been at the Alerus.
Bison have never beat the SIOUX in the Alerus, slipping in 2001 & 2003.
In fact NDSU hasn't won in GF since 1997, which was at Memorial Stadium.
For the Hawks fans attending that have never been to this Rivalry game, you will be in for a treat.
CERTAIN (hello Lakes) ndsu fans are encouraging their fans not to show up in GF - GREAT! This will make their return to the AL more of an embarassment than they every imagined. What a bunch of pussies! We don't need them up here anyway - they have the smell of desperation about them this season anyway!
Its almost as if people have maybe seen this movie before and can get a big wiff of which direction the wind is blowing and they dont want to be left holding the bag....
or from another perspective
Maybe people are generally concerned for their health and that of their family and are choosing to no longer take on their percieved rising risk.... which is their right to do.
Good times! I was a freshman, and playing in UND's marching band in 2003. During the 4th quarter some of us went over and sat with the NDSU band which was kind of fun. All in all, it was a great freshman experience. I still remember the subway commercials leading up to the game (Bohl's buffalo chick vs Lennon's Chicken Teriyaki) .
Can't believe it has been so long since the Bison have played in the Alerus and hoping it picks up right where it left off. Get the crowd into it, and for old times sake, tear the damn goal posts down! Need to win, hopefully make a damn statement! Can't wait!
