    4) No Protheroe or mini-Protheroes (like mini-Dictas) have been spotted on campus since Joe's epic bust at Niner's minicamp

    Here's a picture of gundy daydreaming ...

    Mine must be by Pony Express.  Hopefully they arrive today.

    You got the runt carrier pigeon.
    He can only carry one ticket at a time and for just a half-mile.
    Then he goes back and gets the next ticket.
    Repeat.

    ... a quiet game is usually a good sign for a corner 

    Yup. DBs are like hockey defensemen: When you notice them it's normally not for a good thing. When you don't recall a play by them they're probably doing it right.

    I don't think I have ever seen that before in my life.  3 outs recorded on baserunning blunders. 

    Statements pounded into us by an old baseball coach: 
    - Never make the first or last out of an inning at third base.
    - Never get trapped off base on a line-out to that base.  
    - If it's going to be close, only send the runner home to tie.

    The Rangers broke all three ... in one inning.

    I’m ok with letting Augie in...with one condition.

    Sanford has given the other Dakota schools at least $10 million. I’d vote yes when the check clears. 

    Um, time value of money? I'd say $10M plus a half-percent vig. ;)

    It's not the plays... it's execution.  I can call what the AC is going to run before they run it at 90 percent clip (just like many would lament about Rudy) but they just execute to perfection so it works. Predictable is fine when you have the horses. You'll kill the other team, tonight, Gundy! Don't ever sleep on three yards and a cloud of dust! :D

    At risk of saying it the 100th time, and saying it as a compliment, 

    NDSU does not do anything exceptional. but what they do they do exceptionally well.

    It was amazing how often they did that.   I'm sure there are stats that show whether it was way out of the ordinary. 

    It was nerve-racking. 

    It's hard enough to watch the first/last minute of period with those guys; it turned out you had to fret the first minute after a goal too. 


  8. I used to eat at Shangri-La before games.

    I used to eat at Grizzly's before games.

    I used to eat at the Chinese place on Columbia before games (lot of staff came from Shangri-La). 

    I used to eat at Wild Hog before games. 

     

    Anyone else see a pattern ... ?  :crazy:

    ... and the NCAA says whatever.  Kind of like the attendance requirement.

    So they selectively enforce, or randomly choose where or when to enforce, certain stated rules, policies, and guidelines. 

    Sounds ... arbitrary and capricious ... to me. 

     

    Various ears, for various reasons, just perked up with my use of that phrase.
