  1. I was referring to their social status within their environment, not economic status. The cheers, the fans, the hangers-on, the recruiting, the girls; gives one a sense of self importance beyond the ice, field, or court.
  2. Many (not all) standout athletes, particularly DI athletes, are pampered. They live in a world quite different from us "average Joes" and always have. Good for them. They are talented in a way that most of us will never experience. We enjoy watching their talent. But because of their talent, those around them have idolized them, giving them every advantage. Their self-importance grows. There is no better representation of this privilege than when we have to hear college athletes who are wearing state-funded uniforms, practicing and playing in benefactor-funded facilities, eating chef-prepared
  3. Fargodome is booked Saturday. May be same issue for Yotes. Welcome to unplanned spring football.
  4. Or they just milked it as long as they could knowing full well, given the stringent protocol, what the eventual outcome would be. Now the story can be, "we wanted to play but nobody would agree to play us.." So very Bison of them
  5. Really? After months of politics on the site, this is where you draw the line. You are about as consistent as a bowel movement after Taco Bell.
  6. And, there you go again. We know what you are. Pretty clear. You hide it pretty well from your employer and your church. Sad.
  7. Ok. Slow down, take a breath Siouxsports.com. Port is a "columnist " not a journalist. Big difference. Yes, he interviewed the Vetter girl. But the University is prevented from sharing its side RE FERPA. So step back from the ledge. I know its difficult since sensationalism is the M.O. on this board. But just once lets try to not go all Thelma & Louise on this issue. And Oxbow6, you should sit this one out. Your discussion of "x" v. "ck" in Jaxson's name said so much about you. Go Cardinals. They must be so proud.
  8. Almost certain Sicatoka's Bible qoute is for the benefit of posters on this board.
  9. Not arguing. Pointing out slippery slope. A new era in speech is upon us. Racism is never justified. Speech is hard to govern. Context is important and the "goring of one's ox" is often the catalyst. I see "the reversal" of the decision as the discussion point.
  10. Agree or not, Fighting Sioux was removed with rationale being it was racist. Does the continual reference to Fighting Sioux by hockey players and fans constitute the same speech? Or, are we now in an era where football players dictate punishment for volleyball players. And hockey continues to get a pass. Confused. Me too.
  11. You mean kinda like referring to the hockey team as the Fighting Sioux?
  12. Was there a new incident or is this a reversal of the Ath. Dept's original decision?
  13. You're a little late to the party Petey. Thanks for playing.
  14. Really? We're going to head down that road. Hard r? Hair splitting at its finest.
  15. There are two girls in the ticket ad. One is in no way associated with the recording. To say otherwise is a lie.
  16. Its an ugly word. Are we prepared to censor lyrics?
  17. So. Would it be ok if they just listened to the lyrics? What about lip syncing? And what about the girl who is in no way involved. Should there be clarification?
  18. Let's be accurate. Singing lyrics to a song that was playing in the car. Does it make a difference? Yes. And its not the vb girl in the ad who was recorded. She was in the car. UND needs to clarify who said what. There's two girls in the ad. One was in the car. One did nothing and is not involved. Can you say slander?
  19. Never gonna fault a kid for having honorable goals. Seems a better alternative to being a middle aged smart ass on an anonymous blog.
  20. Dont correct posters on this forum with facts. They don't like that.
  21. Not saying you did. "Fair enough" was for your take. The rest was for the board meteorologists.
  22. Fair enough. But have any of you that are critical of the travel decisions RE Idaho St. stopped to think about the logistics of rescheduling the flight? Roughly 100 passengers with team and support staff, most of them students. Yes, student schedules matter. And are there charter planes just lying around the tarmac waiting to be re-scheduled? Don't think so. What about the cost of rescheduling the charter, the additional hotel stay? In a tight budget already, where does that come from? Then there's the decision to bus to Bemidji. Totally on the charter company since they were unwilling to land
  23. As hard as it may be given what students account for revenue wise, I agree. Need to seriously consider reconfiguring. Bad look was even worse at midfield yesterday. TV audiences get a really bad impression. Suggest it. See what student reps have to say.
  24. So happy you were never on a team I coached. I would have left your ass on the curb as the bus was pulling away.
