  1. Say there are 12 outstanding offers; the first ten are guys we really want, the remaining two are guys who are second choices or back-up plans. One of those last two offers jumps at it and becomes first commit and there's the scenario.
  2. This is not wrong. "First commit" might be a marginal guy looking to take whatever shows up, and he doesn't pan out and wasn't worth the offer. "First commit" might be a high end guy overlooked (like that LB that ended up starting at Wisconsin) that we may have outkicked our coverage on. That said, first commit is commit by the player, not the UND staff. So, to point, tracking "last commit" or "fourth commit" or "second guy to commit on a Tuesday" are each probably just as valuable as "first commit" from an analytics point of view.
  3. To Mafia I say, до свида́ния
  4. The claim last year is they were using up the in-stock inventory of numbering in the equipment room. Must be a lot of inventory.
  5. One more comment: I'm glad they simplified the blacks. Basic black is always classy, elegant, and in style.
  6. He needs to trust his system. He can't get the yips at the first sign of trouble or doubt and start calling dives over LG on first down ... every drive.
  7. Will adidas be supplying more than jerseys or does the agreement extend to all hockey gear? Will we be seeing Reebok* helmets? *adidas owns Reebok. adidas used to own CCM but sold that recently.
  8. Always OL. Always.
  9. So goes, so goes.
  10. Yes, the patch color accenting (different from jersey base) makes it pop better. I was told the hawk in the logo will always be white, no matter the presentation (black or green) of the ND behind it.
  11. Lose a yoke border, add a stripe, depending on which you're talking about.
  12. Forgive my jersey-heathen-ness, but other than an Adidas logo and take a border here, add a stripe there, ... um ... ?
  13. The smooching sound you just heard was the kiss of death.
  14. Minnkota Power (Grand Forks) is a big push behind enhanced (CO2 based) oil recovery. They'd be grabbing off-gas from their stacks (Young Station) and compressing it to CO2 and selling it to the CO2 injectors. Selling what is normally waste, that sounds good for Minnkota, right? You missed the real reason: No atmospheric (CO2) emissions from Minnkota's coal plants. Project Tundra
  15. 17th Avenue South is a non-starter. It's a mile from both 32nd Avenue and Demers Avenue. What should go there is an underpass (no ramps) like at 40th Avenue in Fargo. That would let Alerus traffic go west from events to the north-south road in the industrial park and then to 32nd or Demers. I know the King's Walk folks want 47th Ave but it'd be more cost effective to finally put ramps on Merrifield Road (where there's already an overpass). It's only three miles from Merrifield Road to 32nd Avenue South. Putting in a Merrifield exchange would truly open up south end development. As far as a south bridge over the Red ... 32nd would make sense as would Merrifield Road, because they'd line up well to Minnesota side roadways, so those can't happen.
  16. You can do that as long as the luck formula involves someone standing in front tipping pucks.
  17. My concern: Who's going to step up and show the group of forwards it's acceptable to put up some goals, early and often. Last season it was like they were afraid to.
  18. Well, either my math is off, or Berry is carrying 27 this season (instead of the Blais/Hak traditional 26 slot roster): G (3): Thome, Scheel, Feeney D (8): Peski, Poolman, Bast, Kierstad, Rieger, Tychonick, JBD, Frisch F (16): Johnson, Yon, Bowen, Michaud, Smith, Mismash, Adams, Keane, Kawaguchi, Hain, Weatherby, Senden, Blaisdell, Albrecht, Pinto, Caulfield Given recent history, I don't have any issue with that. We've seemed to be scrambling at times to fill a game day roster card.
  19. Right now it's all pretty pictures. What'll scream "FBS" to me is someone walkin' in and goin' all ...
  20. Given that city block is about 365' from curb to curb north to south (University to 2nd Ave N, thank you Google maps) that's a softball field. Allowing for stadium and street standoffs you have about 220' down the left field line which is a minimum.
  21. I'm the field shown is only marked for football and soccer, not lacrosse.
  22. And built for defense: The batters look into the afternoon sun (to the southwest). Pitcher's park.
  23. Eat up that much general parking (softball complex) they'll need the east parking ramp. If they put athlete housing on old Memorial, they'll need east parking ramp. Maybe, just maybe, the bridge to nowhere will go somewhere (other than a west parking ramp).
  24. Tell that to the guy who loads hand grenades into shipping crates.
