  1. This type of post makes it harder for many of us to do our jobs. One of our nurses who was in her 40’s and otherwise healthy bought into this baloney fueled by political rants that have nothing to do with this medical challenge we are facing. First of all you show ignorance of the subject when you claim “no respiratory virus in the history of humans has ever been eradicated so the body needs to learn to fight it at some point or another”. Even a basic science student with any review of viruses and immunology knows smallpox was eradicated through vaccinations by 1979. Today it exists only in laboratories if ever needed again for research. We are close to eliminating polio through vaccines. Polio cases exist in only a handful of countries. I’m not sure how many patients you take care of, but it shouldn’t be any if you spew this nonsense. In the last few days, 8 of the last 12 patients I tested were positive for COVID. 5 were sick with cough, fever, fatigue, body aches, sore throats and a couple with diarrhea. 2 of them had been sick for more than 10 days so didn’t qualify for monoclonal antibody infusion. The other 3 were infused, with good results. Non were vaccinated. Ages were 20, 38, 54, 67, 69. The 2 who waited too long still feel crappy but they are ok. 3 had been vaccinated and felt like they had a cold. One lost sense of taste and smell. 2 who tested negative were vaccinated one wasn’t. At Sanford today over 70 pts were in ICU or on ventilators. Only 3 were vaccinated. Although a small cohort and anecdotal, it is consistent with what physicians are seeing around the world. That is solid evidence supporting vaccination. The vaccines went through all 3 phases of testing. They were tested in thousands of subjects. Over a billion people have been vaccinated. It has been proven very effective. It markedly decreases your chance of getting infected but it’s possible you could still get infected. It almost eliminates the chance you will die from COVID or end up with a serious infection. It is still possible. The chance of blood clots from the J&J is about 7/1000000. The chance of myocarditis from the Pfizer or Moderna is about 2-5/1000000. We can treat the blood clots. The myocarditis usually resolves spontaneously within a couple of weeks. You don’t become immune by going to Packer games or hanging out in large crowds. You become immune by successfully fighting off an infection or by getting vaccinated. You odds of avoiding clots or myocarditis are better if you are vaccinated. PM me if you want a more detailed explanation of how the illness or vaccine stimulate our bodies to produce antibodies. Make a decision about getting vaccinated based on scientific facts and evidence. Make your decision based upon the recommendation from your physician. This isn’t the time to get into alternative treatments or non-physician doctors who aren’t trained to recognize, treat and prevent infectious disease. No one who knows me would mistake me for a left wing liberal. Refusing to be vaccinated is not the way to further one’s political beliefs or causes. The best way to do that, is to stay alive stay healthy and attend your party caucuses this fall. The recommendation for vaccination comes from both Trump and Biden. The research and testing was by medical and scientific researchers from all over the world. Because we don’t like the government mandates or we don’t like the media, or we don’t like the present administration is not a reason to refuse to take care of our health. To allow our dislike for Fauci, Biden, some of the Governors etc to keep us home and let our hockey team and the nation see us abandon our team in the national spotlight because of unfounded fears or politics is sad. We will no longer be able to claim we are the best college hockey fans in the world if our team can’t count on us to sacrifice the inconveniences of getting in the arena or worse yet refusing to get vaccinated.

  2. Vaccinated individuals have less severe symptoms AND are less likely to contract COVID. If everyone were vaccinated, we'd have fewer people with the virus and those that did catch it would (on average) have better outcomes. Sounds awesome and not hard to understand at all!

  3. Can you guys stop ripping Weah without all the facts being known? This isn't politics... he's one of the best players, with a great story, who plays on a team that we all root for. Does it benefit anyone by treating him like he's Trump or a Clinton?

  4. This team is so frustrating. Another frustrating day For a little bit of clarity/context 6 pt loss to NDSU at home- should have won.. this one is on Bubba in my opinion and a couple inexplicable calls 7 pt lost to USD on the road- this one is on the Offense some really bizzare play calls.. could have won this game USD is apparently also better than everyone thought.. they are laying a beating on UNI at UNI right now 3 pt loss to the Salukis on the road.. if we had a kicking game or dont drop 2 TD passes, we win this game. (I still think we should have tried that 38 yd fg instead of 4th and 5) No blowouts.. In fact we are all talking about how we could have or should have won all 3 of those games... All three likely playoff teams with likely 2 of the 3 being high seeds. Im not a good loss guy.. but holy crap.. we are not as crappy as a couple people are trying to make it out to be.

  8. You’re posting on a message board multiple times a week/day about this game and other things related to UND football. Why insult someone else and disingenuously shame another poster for doing what you clearly are doing yourself simply by posting about it here? We are all fans and probably spend too much time thinking about this. It’s fun, it’s an escape from all the real life things you mentioned.

  10. I didn't like going for it in 4th down from our own 20 yard line, but if they would have converted everyone would be saying Bubba and/or Danny are geniuses with gargantuan testicles. Defense was so impressive today, really fun to watch. Holinka had his guys dialed in nicely.

  12. This sounds like a teenager living in the wreakage of the future. Am in my mid-80's/ received my booster shot yesterday. My vax card, airline tickets and game tickets are all loaded on my phone. The same is true for the other 7 members of the family although they will be car pooling. Looking forward to dining at the best rib place in Knoxville, hooking up with OLD friends and watch hockey. Also have my tickets for this weekend's game on my phone.

  13. Twenty-four hours before flight, check in on line and load boarding pass onto phone. Pack bags. Make sure tickets to game are loaded onto phone. Arrange transportation to airport. Stand in TSA security checkpoint line. Present boarding pass and id. Remove shoes and load crap into bin. Go through x-ray machine. Put shoes back on and police up crap. Wait for boarding. Present boarding pass. Stand in line watching people try to hoist crap into overhead bin. Two hour ride in cramped airplane. Stand in cramped plane for twenty minutes as people try to remove crap from overhead bin. Navigate airport to ground transportation (bus, cab or car). Drive to hotel. Present id and credit card at hotel. Unpack crap. Find way to Bridgestone arena. Present electronic ticket. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO! You'll need to pull a card out of your wallet to show the ticket agent. Screw it. I'm not going.

  14. Update: I received a lot of local contributions to cover the cost of the stream of the game tonight. This is on top of the many people here on the forum that offered to chip in. Thank you to everyone that offered to help cover the cost but since I've received enough, I will not be needing to collect any further! I'm anticipating a higher than usual amount of viewers for tonight's game. I'll post stream link in the gameday thread since we have one for it now!

  16. I don’t think so. Risk reward didn’t make sense. We were ahead. Defense was playing well. We had been able to move ball but hadn’t run well. They were in FG range with an excellent FG kicker when they got the ball back. If we get the 1st down all we get was another set of downs still deep in our own territory. 1 1/2 yds is tough up the middle. Giving them the ball on our 20 and the int when he could have run for 2yds had he run right away gave them three and cost us 3 or 7. Isaiah Smith is too explosive not to give him more touches. Receivers not running routes to first down distance hurt us a few times. That was a game we can’t afford mistakes like that. Defense played well. Limited them to 3 FG’s til last minute when they started quite a few times with decent field position. Most people don’t care but our punter had a great day. Offense wasn’t consistent enough. Oline didn’t “impose their will” but protected Schuster pretty well. Kids played hard. Can’t make those mistakes against good teams. This game could have gone either way.

  17. Going for it on 4th down I side the 20, dumb. Reverse on 4th down, dumb. Tommy int in the red zone, dumb. Those are the three plays that really stood out and cost the game. This ain’t that same NDSU greatness. We can beat them but we have to clean it up and make sound decisions.

  20. Oh cmon. This entire topic is predicated on political hackery. Hell, most people I know who are anti-vaxxers were oddly ultra supportive of things like the Patriot Act - aka "What's the big deal? If you're doing nothing wrong you have nothing to worry about! We need to keep America safe!" There are several billion people on this planet who would kill to have the luxuries we do; to be inoculated against disease/ability to spend income on entertainment. And here we are complaining about inconveniences, or that if we give into vaccination mandates it'll set a precedent whereby the gov will be empowered to use 5G to brainwash the populace into getting microchipped by the Reptilians. Get the damn shot, go support the Sioux!!!

  23. So I just met Marc Chorney. I’m sitting at the bar after the game, minding my own business and he comes over and says, “Okay I gotta sit next to this North Dakota guy.” I say something complimentary about Quinnipiac and then mention how they have a player whose dad was an All-American at North Dakota. To which this guy says, “Oh, you don’t say?” And then Taylor is standing there and says, “You’re talking to him!” We all had a good laugh. Really nice guy.

  29. Wow. This thread. Yes having to show proof of vaccination or a negative covid test is an inconvenience. And yes, the directions are confusing. But we’ll get it figured out. It’s not a huge sacrifice, we aren’t suffering, as many have during the pandemic. I feel pretty darn lucky to be able to travel to this game with lots of friends and family. We’ve waited so long for it to happen and we’re almost there. It’s exciting!

  36. No idea what Bubbas “command presence” is like in the locker room in the heat of battle, but what we see on the sideline, in press conferences, in interviews is not confidence building. I think at this stage he is what he is and the probability of him cracking the national championship code this late in his career is very very low.

  37. Just realized I had a Bison shirt in a tote of clothes a friend gave us for my daughter...so last weekend is on me... I'll burn it tonight to get it out of the house and we'll be all good for the USD game. The jinx will be off!! Deepest apologies, I'll be more careful in the future about what gets in the house!

  38. You couldn't be more wrong idiot. Try watching it - 10am-11am on Food Network on Sundays. The show is called "Girl Meets Farm" - Molly is an east coast food blogger who met a guy from EGF and wound up marrying him. They live on a farm just north of EGF. She's 9 seasons in on her Food Network show and cooks up a variety of theme recipes with an amazing personality and panache. She also promotes GF/EGF at the same time - most recent was a reference to an "awesome" local diner called Darcy's Cafe (with video from Darcy's) for a great breakfast. She's a great local resource we should embrace and tap for positive PR for the greater GF community - instead we act like gfhockey....saying she's a "hotdish whore" without knowing anything about the real story. Do some homework if you're going to comment on everything Mr Wisdom! If she lived in Fargo she would be a local media star! If she's going to open a restaurant/bakery in EGF at the old Whiteys/Sickies location - it will BE AMAZING and we should all be happy about it. Wait and see

  39. I get that it came at a bad time (and it was definitely a bad time)...but we're being awfully critical of a guy who threw 1 interception...which came on a bang bang play when he was trying to make something happen. The proper play would have probably just been to eat it and kick the field goal...but there's no guarantee we make that either. It hurt a lot...but I'm gonna cut Tommy some slack here...those things happen to all QBs. I think this team is really missing a healthy Maag...we need a physical big bodied receiver to step up...and I'm not convinced that Richter is athletic enough to do it (if he is he needs to show it).

  40. Maag plays so soft now though. He was best as a fr and soph somehow. He’s just not a dude. And same goes for Quincy Vaughn. HE IS NOT A POWER RUNNER FOR FUCKS SAKE! Stop pretending he’s anything but a pocket passer. He has no power when he runs. He stops the second he meets resistance. If they wanted to get those two yards against a good DL they should’ve given it to Otis. He can at least break a damn tackle.

  45. Saw a car roll right through the middle of all the tailgaters to get to their spot at 12:30. There were people everywhere. He ended up driving over my buddys custom made fighting Hawks bean bag toss boards. No reason any car should be allowed to pull into their tailgate spot less than 2 hours before gametime (probably more). Not only does it irritate fans, but it is potentially dangerous with all the fans walking around. Alerus needs A LOT of updating when it comes to gameday planning, but this is one that really needs to be changes ASAP. They have a time when the tailgate lot opens, but there should be a time when it closes as well. Pretty simple.

  46. This next game will tell me everything I need to know about the state of the program. How well will our coaches and player leaders prepare for this game? Will we show up like a bunch of losers and !@#$ the bed or will we show up like a bunch of winners, pissed off and ready to take it out on the opponent?
