    I realize the "just leave if you don't like it" comments in our country have been vilified as racist and xenophobic over the years, but I believe it's important to discuss what most people I've heard say that actually mean when they say that. The United States is flawed, but it is also the most prosperous, equitable, self improving, welcoming, innovative(I could go on) society in the history of the known world. Note that I didn't say perfect, but what other country would even try the way we do? Our system of governance was developed by geniuses who saw the flaws in each and every other system around the world and built the United States to be different. Fast forward 250 years later and we have people who seem to want to change our country into a type of system that the people who built this country specifically avoided because they simply don't allow the types of freedoms they hoped to create for citizens of the United States. So why are we allowing people to dismantle our country from within when a free person who wants to live under certain types of laws or have a certain way of living can move there. Those systems already exist elsewhere. Live there if you want to live that way, don't ruin this amazing country. People scrimp, save, pinch every penny and scheme for generations figuring out how to get to the United States and live in this great society so they can change their life and the lives of their descendants and we are allowing it to be absolutely ruined from within. It's awful.

    This is a disappointing trend! More people in the 15-24 age range have died from pneumonia (247 in the entire US) this year than COVID-19 (142 in the entire US). More teenagers will die from driving by 4 times in 2020 than COVID-19. Why can't we live life and those that don't want to attend games or participate can watch on TV.

    I know it's all about serving UND's long term best interests, but I have a "bad karma" feeling about joining the Big 10. While it would be great to have UW and UMinn back as conference rivals, I just don't like the idea of rewarding people like B Alvarez and turning our backs on loyalties with programs like DU and UMD.

    We gave the experts three months, flatten the curve, to get an understanding and prepared. This is viral. This genie is out of the bottle. It will take it’s share. Get over it; viruses kill people. And all we can do is react. We are not in control. Nature is. I say drop all the restrictions. Then you decide how you want to play it. Live your freedom your way.

    After posting 90+ videos on YouTube and SiouxSports I'm out of Sioux victories. It's been a lot of fun and I've enjoyed the feedback/comments from all you hockey diehards. If you don't want to scroll through all the pages of this thread, feel free to check out YouTube... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqgKzKhLCVfPMvbM3tEShQA/ I have to say this video was really the one that got this whole thing going so I think it is fitting to end with this one. An all time favorite, Sioux vs Gofers, 1998 at the Old Ralph.

    I want nothing to do with the Big10...that conference needs UND far more than UND needs it.

    UND is in a position of power in any negotiation that would happen. The B1G needs UND, not the other way around. If they do go, it better be for guaranteed annual money. I still don't like it. The NCHC is self-sustaining at this point and is the premiere college hockey conference. It's where every new school wants to join and every current school in the footprint wants to join. If UMN and Wisco weren't forced to stay in the B1G, they'd be trying to join the conference as well.

    i get the $$$ part of moving to the Big Mistake, but leaving the top conference in the country would be quite an adjustment. I don't even care that Minnesota isn't in the same conference as UND any more. They moved and look what has happened to them; they can't sell out a home game against anyone. Gofer hockey; social distancing since 2013!

    You have no idea what their circumstances are. Maybe they are making a short trip and don’t find the mask uncomfortable. Maybe they are being extra cautious because they have a severe underlying condition and they don’t want to touch their face more than they have to. Are you mad at Pence now for telling people to wear masks? This goes beyond “judgey”. Criticizing people for taking precautions to keep themselves healthy is truly pathetic.

    First amendment has already been nullified with the use of the term "hate speech" being legally enforceable. Public college campuses have become bastions of censorship. Twitter, facebook, instagram and google are knowingly and admittedly censoring conservative posts. During Covid, the right to peaceably assemble has become a crime, unless you are protesting. But you have to be protesting for BLM, if you protest for being able to open your business at the state capital it's against the law. There is a reason they wrote this one down first, without this one, the rest don't matter.

    Let me try to clear it up with a question. Does a white American who grows up in poverty and with drug addicts as parents have an advantage over an African American in the exact same circumstances? The ultra wealthy, old money in our country is mostly white people. But ALL white people get somehow lumped in with this “old money, waspy, Ivy League” persona that simply isn’t reality. What I’m saying, is money is what buys privilege in our country. Not skin color.

    This country is absolutely bananlands. Death rates are down, people for the most part have been pretty cautious since mid-March. More people (sheep) are wearing masks than ever, that's a good thing, sure. Death rates of Covid 19 are tremendously down (again as mentioned) athletes and high profile people are getting the (faux) virus, which is fine/good. They are recovering in way less time than 2 weeks. Once again quarantine for 2 weeks and 6 ft' social distancing is a myth. Restaurants and opened businesses are cleaner now than ever and have new cleanliness policies than ever before, which is good. Feel bad for the sheep that will take the fist vaccine in ~ 6-months, good luck with that! Let's have all the liberal universities join in for an agenda and political reasons to cancel future developed men and women sports. Wonderful. Tell me what is going to be different if they start sports in January rather than August? The Virus must be scared of cold temperatures and wind chill in January. I am not a subject matter expert, but either is Fauci. He's a puppet who's accuracy is worse than the weather person (can't say weatherman, pc these days). Keep moving the goal posts! Absolute joke!! I am adding the Covid 19 debacle to the Las Vegas shooing. Funning how that was just push aside and under the rug. After November and 6 months after that, I feel I will place Covid in that same personal file for me.

    I'm just picking this thread because I also have a thought and there's no reason to create new threads: Can we create an option to ignore entire threads? Before I completely quit SiouxSports because every thread turns into politics, it would be nice to choose to only see the ones that are actually related to sports. Or if 5 people flag a post as political, then it doesn't appear if you have a setting checked. Clearly, the politics have been allowed to go unchecked into threads other than the 5g and it has ruined this board.

    Considering the very noticeable upticks in Texas, Arizona and Florida over the last few weeks, specifically the amount of those hospitalized, I'm not sure warm weather is the magic bullet everyone was hoping it would be. Encouraing to see things are still well under control in this immediate area, but that could just naturally be from the ability to easily socially distance here. Also, I guess I'm not sure how the election year thing plays into it considering this seems to be a global pandemic with other countries taking measures far more severe than the US to control the spread. Are all of them in on this whole thing as well? Canada and the US mutually extended a travel ban until mid-July. The EU is looking at disallowing visitors from the US (along with Brazil and Russia) if/when they reopen their borders early July due to coronavirus response. Not sure how those things are the US media blowing things out of proportion and tie to the US election.

    So my question is, are we getting to herd immunity? Maybe more people have been exposed to this than we actually thought. Unfortunately, I think COVID-19 has been highly politicized and prevented us from having a serious dialog about this virus.

    Can you imagine what we would learn if we tested for any other disease(s) like we do COVID-19, and then hung on every little morsel of data like we do? Our understanding of living with -- and amongst -- communicable disease would be forever changed. If only we knew, we might not be selling our immune systems down the river. When did absurd delusions of immortality come to shape everything that is said and done? When did it become okay to stop living? Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. What are people so afraid of? Dying...or living? I would much rather die from living, than live like the dying.

    ND has around 40 currently hospitalized due to COVID. MN around 250 hospitalized. Deaths.....no dramatic change in either state but now the focus in the local/regional news is all about positive cases. Do 6000+ test in a day and get 99 positives, of which 40 (CDC estimate) had no idea they are "sick", and watch out. This "uptick" BS is just feeding into the misinformation that fits the media to further an agenda to fit the fear porn narrative. Pelosi recently stated the "greatest risk" to the spread of the virus is sending kids back to school. All based on science and data? She is such a f-n moron.

    So the 'science and medical experts' that we're all supposed to trust have been mostly wrong the whole time then, including Fauci..... Where do we stop trusting the experts and when? They've been wrong on so many things. That's what this is and has been all about. Bad 'science and medical expertise'.......and politics. The forecasting and models by literally every health organization have been statiscally and tragically off. There have been constantly evolving opinions by the general public, and.....wait for it.....'medical experts and scientists'. They don't all agree on this just like we don't. However, fact is, we just don't hear about those differing 'medical experts and scientists' opinions because they are filtered and diluted out by mainstream and social media because it doesn't fit a narrative. At some point, we just have to decide what's best for us individually. If someone wants to lock themselves in quarantine and wear a mask everywhere they go, have a blast. But if I choose not to do that, there should be reciprocity. We all know that hasn't and won't happen. The data since the start of all this has never been empirical. If I die of a heart attack tomorrow and test positive for COVID-19, I go down in the stats as COVID-19. That's what they're doing. Honest question: why don't we have vaccines for the Influenza strains yet? How long has it been around and why haven't we solved that yet? It kills thousands of Americans every year. The response will be because there are way too many strains and it morphs so often so when you get your flu shot in the fall, it really only covers 10-20% of flu strains. The novel coronavirus will do the same thing, I promise. Yet now we can't get back to 'normal' until a vaccine is found...... ....or until Trump loses in November. At which point we will be back to 'normal'.

    I'm old enough to remember back to Earl Anderson, Jim Cahoon, and Al Hangsleben, but watching these archived games is really a learning experience. New (renewed) appreciation for Ian Kidd. Hrkac's on ice intelligence quotient was through the roof. Hockey in the late 80s was still very physical, but there seems to have been less chickensh*t stuff after the whistle. I guess since the players weren't punished as severely for the big hits and fighting, they were less interested in small-time showy stuff like facewashes and stickwork. It's good they are making the game safer and more wide open nowadays, so I'm not complaining about the way it is called now. Just an observation. I may be wrong, but with the large increase in numbers playing the game in the States since the 70s, the game has gotten a LOT more competitive. As good as they were, I don't see how those teams from the 80s would fare as well against the top teams today. And I'm an old timer inclined to remember things as being better than they were.

    It's my tripping point. I had a Great GF served in the civil war and survived. Another Great GF had a brother that dies in the civil war. Many relative that served in WWI a d WWII. I served during Vietnam and well as a brother. It's about all that served that made this country the best ever. Sports means nothing in comparison.

    I stole this. But, hey. Outside of these issues Trump is probably fine. My biggest issue with Trump is probably the fact that he has had no prior political experience, went bankrupt 6 times and has many failed businesses, paid off a porn star to keep quiet, has over 24 harassment allegations, has had 2 articles of impeachment drafted against him, illegally contacted Ukraine to help him win re-election, has the most hours of golfing over any president, has done nothing to help our dying climate, botched the coronavirus response because he called it a hoax by the democrats instead of acting quicker, has never had an approval rating of over 45 percent, the whole Central Park 5 incident, thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax, told POC to go back to where they came from, throws meltdowns on Twitter, constantly retweets himself agreeing with himself, has had tweets flagged for misinformation, signed an executive bill regarding Twitter after his feelings got hurt, has increased our debt, hasn’t pulled out of any wars, adbandoned the Kurds, is really fat with a spray tan, has US pride at an all time low, has 10 cases of obstruction of justice per the mueller report, used George Floyd as an excuse to brag about job numbers, wanted to use violence against peaceful protestors, has done nothing to solve the wealth gap or poverty rate, has increased our debt, is fat and has an ugly spray tan, said he would date his own daughter, talked about fake treatments during a corona press conference, used to be an anti vaxxer, violated an official weather map with a fucking sharpie, all the !@#$ in john Bolton’s book, said that cases would disappear if testing stopped, has a Vice President that can’t say “black lives matter” only “all lives matter”, falsely claimed there’s an AIDS vaccine, loves himself but has little empathy for others, is a complete asshole to reporters, made fun of someone disabled, the “grab by the pussy” thing, wanted to nuke a hurricane, thinks windmills cause cancer, has told over 19,000 false claims, talked more about him on a ramp than George Floyd, wants burning the flag to be a crime, called the coronavirus the kung flu, and has done nothing to help the average American.

    Schuster is definitely the favorite going into the season. The other two are true freshmen and Schuster won a game for UND against a ranked opponent in 2019. There's no guarantees, but Schuster is the early favorite for sure.
