    Over the last 4-5 years, SS.com members have raised nearly $30,000 to assist UND football with equipment (specialized knee braces, concussion caps, video equipment, etc.). We should be very proud of what we have done – I know that the FB coaches and AD greatly appreciate our efforts. While the season is a few months (or maybe a year away), it would be great if we could assist the program again this fall. As most everyone knows, we have finally moved the FB locker room and offices out of Memorial Stadium. For those who hadn’t visited Memorial in recent years, it was truly a dump and an embarrassment to the program. Frankly, I am surprised that our recruiting efforts didn’t suffer more than they did due this lousy facility. While we all wait for HPC2 to become a reality, the move to Starcher and Hyslop has been a major improvement. It is far from ideal but a better situation. There are four player meeting rooms within the FB offices in Starcher. There is a need for a workstation in each room with video editing equipment. The cost of each workstation and computer is about $1,000 with the video editing equipment also totaling about $1,000. That means the cost of providing four fully functional stations would be $8,000. The athletic department has a deal with Dell to provide computer equipment at very reasonable prices and the editing software will be provided by DVSport, the industry leader in athletic replay editing. For consistency purposes, we will continue with the “Let’s Help Bubba” name. I know some question that but please understand our goal is to help the football program with their needs. Last year, we quickly hit our goal for purchasing Guardian helmet concussion caps and then moved on to specialized knee braces for offensive linemen. With the season moving to spring (we hope), the coaching staff would like new jackets for the team (for outside games). We will assist with that effort if/when we hit the initial $8,000 goal.

    That’s nothing more than a damn lie! The nuclear option was instituted by none other than Democrat Harry Reid in 2013 in order to stop those nasty “obstructionist” Republicans. Once the Republicans were in power in the Senate, McConnell only extended that rule. What goes around, comes around...

    I find it interesting when asking about "green energy". Most folks are for it when that's left as the query. But ask how much more per month they're willing to pay for "green electricity", the positivity drops. And ask if they willing to have rolling blackouts at times because baseline demand* can't be met by "green energy" the positivity drops again. Everything is a great idea in theory, until it has to work in practice. *See recently in California

    The fact that a sitting congresswoman dismisses the the whole 9/11 event as "some people did something" is what's most embarrassing.

    Man today just really hit me that we won't be having UND football this fall. We should be pumped right now speculating who's going to start at QB on Thursday, who will breakout, which true freshman will see playing time, etc. Instead we speculating when a season for the FCS will actually happen. F COVID (and politics)!

    Contrary to popular belief, two things can be true at the same time. 1. Covid-19 can kill you 2. The media has absolutely overblown the risk

    I find it interesting that the longer this thread exists the more it is solidified and proven that all politicians are corrupt, morally and otherwise. If we can agree on that, maybe we can stop with the petty, he said something mean, he’s mentally unfit etc etc garbage. Maybe it behooves us to actually vote for politicians based on policy. This is my justification for voting for Trump. He’s a trash human being, in a political sea of equally trash human beings. So vote based on what is being done policy wise and in that way, I think Trump is superior to Biden.

    I agree, that isn't ideal. The good news though is I just checked USD's schedule and they play UNI the week before, which will be a tough game. However, they play on Friday though...so they will have one extra day to recover. We are part of the MVFC, so by default now we get to use the word brutal about our schedule every year

    I'll take spring over nothing, but as we watch FBS leagues and High School sports backpedal and reverse their decisions, I think it is pretty clear a lot of people jumped the gun with the decision to cancel or postpone events.

    Now Walz has two new benchmarks he's going to follow before ending his MN COVID emergency......positivity rate and % of "infections" from community spread. Both of which are at best educated guesses based on how the MDH handles testing, data and metrics. I thought it was just 14 days to flatten the curve. Then I thought it was deaths and hospitalizations. Then it was some dumba## dial system. Now it's another obscure set of benchmarks. He spent millions on a refrigeration warehouse for his 74000 death count model. He watched downtown Minneapolis burn and turn into a mini lawless 3rd world country. Glad I'm not a resident of MN under the "leadership' of that clown who's only objective is moving the Covid goalposts so his executive power stays in tact.

    One of my biggest frustrations with liberals of late is the "microaggression" nonsense, and here's why: I've long held that focusing on racism overlooks a bigger problem: classism. In the same situation, if the black male is dressed in a suit and tie, and the white male appears to be homeless, you'll be more afraid of the white male. But saying this is a "microaggression" and will get you written up in your sociology/anthropology 101 course these days, even if you say trigger warning. Drives me nuts. EDIT: didn't really finish the thought. People aren't afraid of black people as much as they are afraid of poor black people. Addressing that as a society would be constructive.

    I know I know.....rigged system....not rigged enough to prevent a person of color from getting free schooling solely due to their skin color, or by getting free schooling or even making millions of dollars playing a sport.......or singing.... acting..........or even starting up the right business.....but still rigged.

    Were lockdowns a mistake? To that nagging question, the answer increasingly seems to be yes. Certainly, they were a novelty. As novelist Lionel Shriver writes, “We’ve never before responded to a contagion by closing down whole countries.” As I’ve noted, the 1957-58 Asian flu killed between 70,000 and 116,000 Americans, between 0.04 percent and 0.07 percent of the nation’s population. The 1968-70 Hong Kong flu killed about 100,000, 0.05 percent of the population. The US coronavirus death toll of 186,000 is 0.055 percent of the current population. It will go higher, but it’s about the same magnitude as those two flus, and it has been less deadly to those under 65 than the flus were. Yet there were no statewide lockdowns; no massive school closings; no closings of office buildings and factories, restaurants and museums. No one considered shutting down Woodstock https://nypost.com/2020/09/06/its-now-looking-like-the-lockdowns-may-have-been-a-huge-mistake/

    Tactics are tactics, but let’s not make the voter registration movement from democrats out to be altruistic. If voter demographics were to change in the future, we both know the democrats wouldn’t be pushing to be so inclusive. It’s all about winning, not about trying to be inclusive.

    You and Dem leaders continually saying Trump won’t accept the election results after 2016 makes this post funny to everyone else. They haven’t accepted 2016 yet.

    I've made this point many time in this thread and it seems to fall on deaf ears. Without some new information proving the way we've handled things for decades wrong, the approach we took(are taking) has zero basis in science and was a complete overreaction that has ruined countless lives. This is unacceptable to me. If some new information had come to light about quarantining healthy people being more effective than quarantining sick people, than our approach would be "following the science" without said groundbreaking study, we were throwing darts in the dark. Logical people have seen these inconsistencies and then wonder what the motivations for this new approach could have been.

    UND could have kept the KSU game and made 500k, plus have tons of extra practice time, and we could have proceeded to play in the spring, as scheduled.

    Trying to cloud the issue to make your feeble argument hold a little more water? 5G doesn't scare me or most......most including myself acknowledge that there has always been a component of socialism in America, the argument is over what level that should be, Antifa should be treated like the criminal element it is, Bill Gates is rich and out of touch like most rich people are, most including myself are all on board with black lives mattering.....just not making the club of lives that matter exclusive to any one race....vaccines are good for the vast majority of people but it's not unreasonable to express caution over being first in line for one that has been fast tracked like none other in history......which brings us to masks......unless medical grade and put on with the proper training....their usefulness is minimal and the people that truly need to worry about Covid (old and already sick people) should not be basing their feeling safe on the 30 year old liberal arts graduate that has a cheap cloth mask on with her nostrils exposed at the local starbucks.

    Orgeron's comments come on the heels of Texas Tech self-reporting five more cases of COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the team's total number of positive cases to 75 since players returned to campus in June. (75 of roughly 100) Isn't it clear this is the answer? Texas Tech is almost thru the herd immunity process. I know for a fact the only symptom of a player in GF was loss of taste, that was his symptom. Holy Crap, let's cancel the season until the guys can taste a grinder from the Red Pepper. This is such a travesty. I sure hope we were a dissenting voice in the Conference when the MVFC folded.

    You can stay home if you'd like. Where does this "how dare I get sick, and it better not be your fault" mentality even come from? Do you have a solid grasp on your own mortality? It's the human condition. Living, illness, dying. Choices. Risks. Why are there so many special people all of a sudden who think they have dominion over any of this?

    I'll answer that this way. If I have a severe peanut allergy, I can control my own environment. I can make sure that nothing enters my home or my vehicle or any other space I have control over. Furthermore, I can make rules for those who want to be around me in my spaces that they will follow those to a T or I will be very sick and/or die. If however, I decide to go to a grocery store or a football game, I don't have the right to ask every person in the store or in the stadium to follow my rules. I, in those situations, have to protect myself from the part of the world that leaves me vulnerable. This is exactly how I suggest people handle Covid-19.

    So the "reporters" and "journalists" on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC to name a few are in your mind cult members? I guess I never considered that but they do use the exact same terminology and buzz words...almost like they all get the same script sometimes.

    LOL - Give me a break - who's been trying to destroy President Thump since day one. As far as McCain and others they started the criticism and Thump hits back. He's not W who let the left walk all over him and didn't say a word. This article is a joke.

    Your logic would only follow if people were somehow forced to interact with others. In 2020, if you want to never be in the same room as another human, you don't have to. If you're scared or believe you are at risk due to pre-existing conditions then don't go. Let the rest of us live our lives and decide what our own risk tolerance is.

    Leftist BS logic. Let's force a lockdown of the entire country economically(antithetical to what Trump wanted) and when the economy tanks we'll keep repeating the mantra "This is Trumps America" You're like a child who shits his pants and then blames it on his little sister who told him to go sit on the toilet before soiling himself.
