  1. I'm not looking to pick any fights on the vaccine or anything else, but in my opinion we are asked, and willingly provide, lots more sensitive information all the time, for legitimate and maybe less legitimate reasons. For instance, someone asked what you'd do when asked to produce your Real ID or passport to get on the plane, and I think it was Sic who said he'd give them non-medical information. I don't know what anyone else's vaccine card looks like, but mine has my name, my D.O.B., the brand of the vaccine I received, the dates I received the shots, and the location where I received them. That's it. Until you're about 30, every time you go into a bar you give them your name and D.O.B. I can do a heck of a lot more damage to you with your Real ID or passport than I can with the Covid card. I got my shots at Walmart, of all places, right next to the check out aisles, with a steady stream of the refuse that is the Walmart customer base walking past me as I sat and waited. It doesn't get much less confidential than that. I don't know if they still do this, but when I registered at UND I had to turn over all kinds of vaccination records, for them to keep on file (again, they didn't ask to just glance at them). I've had to turn over my social security card and passport or other id every time I've gotten a job. I had to give a copy of my birth certificate and passport to the clown at the DMV that gave me my enhanced drivers license. Is any of that ideal? No, but we have to do it, and we do. Whoever posted that all they're going to do is glance at the card and let you go is 100% right. They won't remember any of your information ten seconds later.

  2. Just so we are clear. If you are unvaccinated and have a negative test you are good to go. If you are vaccinated and unknowinlgy have Covid you are also good to go. Trust "The Science"

  3. My desire is for us to pack the place, and rock downtown Nashville like we did in Vegas. I'd rather have them require the covid card and let us fill the arena than reduce capacity, or eliminate the crowd altogether. If this let's the arena people, the City of Nashville or the State of Tennessee feel better about letting us fill the barn, then I can make due.

  4. Everyone needs to support the team! We are in the Missouri Valley now and are on a 11-12 game winning streak at home. The atmosphere helps the players and also helps with recruiting the better players. The team has rewarded with wins at home! The chance is there for another playoff run but it takes everyone! Fans, Admin, Coaches and Players! Let's Go!

  5. I think we pretty much know where everyone individually stands on COVID. Do we really need to continue with the snarky comments. Some of us have lost family to the virus - oh that's right they were going to die anyway and the virus is a hoax.

  8. I just want to say that I really hope you guys do well the rest of the way. Maybe even taking down the Bison or even James Madison or Sam Houston State for the championship. I know you look at our 1-5 record last year and thought you should beat a 1-5 FBS team, but we are much improved. I do think you guys beat our team last year. We had a coach who wanted to keep our season shut down, and the attitude carried down to our players and us having the poor season we had last year. I know some of you saw this, but we brought in alot of transfers from other schools. Our program this year is not in the same mess that it was in last year.

  10. You guys are letting the politics of the vaccine cloud your thinking. Private company. Private property. They make the rules. You don’t get to bring your gun. You can’t bring your cow, or your pet chickens. You can’t even bring your drunk, naked cousin from Watford City. If you want to go to a sporting event where no vaccine is required, head to Alerus. Now, if you want to bring your cow, pet chickens or drunk, naked cousin from Watford City, you’re going to have to go to the Fargo Dome.

  17. Hello Everyone, I have two new articles for you. A recap of last week's MVFC results can be found here: https://www.missourivalleybeat.com/post/mvfc-week-1-and-0-recap A primer for this week's games in the MVFC can be found here: https://www.missourivalleybeat.com/post/mvfc-week-2-primer Check them out if you'd like. Always fun to see people reading my stuff! Thanks, and good luck against Utah State. I think that game is eminently winnable.

  21. I heard of a sting in Fargo back in the Backpage days where police posed as johns and targeted providers. The police used the sting to get the sex workers alone to inquire about their safety and to give them contact information if they needed help. If the pimps showed up, they were arrested. The sex workers were not arrested and I believe some or all were given a gift card to a local grocery store or something like that along with the offers of help. If you're actually trying to stop human trafficking(a noble cause), that seems about 1000x more effective than what GFPD just did.

  23. Ok, so the big picture... in this situation... is that we lost our No. 1 center... like I said. Got it If he didn't leave, would he still be a detriment to the team? Goodness. He was voted a two-year captain in spite of any tension he may have created prior to leaving. This absolutely not addition by subtraction.

  24. After a summer of hiatus, I am back with my first two MVFC pieces of content of 2021. In case you missed me in the spring, I am just a guy who enjoys MVFC football and enjoys writing so I combined both into this blog. I don't make any money for this, I just do it for the love of the game. If you have the interest/time, check it out. My week one MVFC primer can be found here. I think you'll roll pretty easily in Pocatello: https://www.missourivalleybeat.com/post/mvfc-week-one-primer My article ranking the MVFC money games in order of likeliness of victory is here. Fighting Hawks come in at #3 with your very winnable game against Utah State next week: https://www.missourivalleybeat.com/post/quick-hits-ranking-the-mvfc-money-games Check them out if you'd like. Best of luck to UND this weekend.

  28. I was finally able to watch the game last night. I had a good reason to miss it though! That goal line stand was absolutely huge. After the spring it was really nice to see a stop like that. The offense looks good and it appears we have a high ceiling as long as they can shore up most of those mistakes. Namely the snaps. Bummer to lose Haas but it seems we have some depth there. I was really happy with the secondary and the scheme. That hit by Coley that knocked the ball out sticks out to me. I really didn't like that this game was scheduled but you play what's on the schedule. I am happy with the end result and we need to fix up some mistakes and if we can do that we could be really competitive tomorrow night.

  29. Can't underestimate the importance of stopping ISU four consecutive times when they had a first and goal from the one, and the game was still up for grabs. Unbelievable. There were other factors that were important, but I think that this defensive sequence was the key to the W.

  31. Really hate the "sloppy, clumsy way it was announced - with the team on the ice, practicing" narrative. NCAA allowed one hour of organized practice time per week. Everyone saw the writing on the wall and knew the date and time the announcement was going to be made. Idalski knowingly scheduled that one hour practice at the exact same time the announcement was going to be made. He did it for optics and to throw egg on his employer's face. Shame on him. And yeah, UND (men's) hockey has a great tradition, which makes it all the more embarrassing that despite that tradition, the hockey facilities, the heralded Lammy twins, and a parade of European Olympians, UND women's hockey never managed to win a single NCAA playoff game. Ever. EVER.

  33. Perhaps prospect camp revealed he was more advanced/developed than he thought he was. Either way, sucks for us fans but Sioux hockey is only entertainment for us. This is Weatherby's career. Like Gino used to say - nobody has a right to stand in front of a man's right to make a living. Good luck to him!

  34. I'll fess up to some sour grapes, but I didn't care about the knee situation. The anonymous bashing of a school employee on his girlfriend's behalf was a poor choice though. A big part of it for me was my expectation that he was going to come alive like Frattin did as a Senior. Both had strong second halves of their Junior year. Not comparing their off ice lives at all; he seemed primed to explode this year.

  35. I'm gonna say it... I wish you well, Jasper. I'm sure this decision wasn't easy and you are going to/have already pissed off A LOT of people, but you do you, man. Players come to UND to try and win a national championship and make it to the NHL and I'm all for a guy jumping at his opportunity. Good luck and I'll be cheering for you to make it to the show. With all of that said.... ugh, this blows.

He wanted to beat North Dakota State and win a national championship. "I feel like I've always wanted to beat NDSU, so that was one of the main reasons, and I wanted to win a national championship for the program," Turner said. His dreams are my dreams.

  42. Too many penalties, but overall a good start. Schuster continues to protect the ball. We didn’t give up a lot of big plays. Run defense was good. Nice mix of run pass. We didn’t blow them out but we dominated after halftime which is always good. Special teams were special. Touchbacks on all KO. No punt returns and most impressive stat was we averaged over 50 yds per punt. Clean up penalties and eliminate drops it would have been a dominant start to season. If we can stay healthy and get better each weak, we can be pretty good.

  45. Well...get all the students on the UND campus for move-in weekend with opening classes to start Monday (yesterday) then send a campus wide email late Sunday afternoon about an on campus indoor mask mandate. Typical nutless leadership....again. Like the decision for the mask mandate was just decided on Sunday.

  46. Absolutely no respect for Weatherby to make a decision like this in August. You commit to the team this spring, the staff is counting on you, the rest of the team is counting on you and then in late August you bail? Absolutely disgusting. Jasper obviously is much more of a ME type player than I ever thought. Couldn't care less what his hockey career looks like the rest of the way.

  47. And a different team would be best for him if he wants to play. But a lifetime back up QB in the NFL is a good gig. Chase Daniel has made about $50 million and has started 6 NFL games.

  48. Weatherby is a forward and Morrow is a defenseman. How would that have helped? Either way though, absolute dick move by Weatherby.
