    Ya I agree kids are kids. But aren't we talking about men now? :blush:

    Not necessarily. The comforts of college prolong adolescence. They are young men, but still kids. The real world will be there soon enough. And we hope the college years have prepared them for it.

  2. Family,  community,  faith. Even the "hellians" I went to school with in the dark ages eventually come around. The bad guys get put away or die young. Those that live on want to live in peace and eventually turn to things that make us all safe and secure. Nobody wants to live a life of chaos. More recently, we've let 24 hour news channels and social media promote discord (our differences of opinion rather than our common interests). We and younger generations will learn how to better navigate this somewhat new medium and get back to center.

    I coach a Highschool sport and they are so different than millennials it’s crazy. However, after you peel back the first couples layers which have been created by social media running their lives since they were 5, they’re the same as every other generation. If you don’t baby them at all and demand accountability after a bit they get it. But it’s a tough transition for them.

    I agree. Every generation has "their thing" but kids are kids. They want to know somebody cares. Taking the time to get to know them reveals that. Older generations (like mine) have been predicting the end of society since cave men ruled. Culture changes, but eventually our common values prevail. Good insight Geaux.

    With a QB that would struggle to start at GFC......not bad.

    You always have to be the biggest jerk on here. What qualifies you for anything other than being spoiled jackass from Carrington who Daddy put through optometry school. Grow up.

    Why the qualifier related to money? You simply asked for another former student athlete who had a building named after them.. and then added a strange addendum that Ralph didn't count. Maybe they're honored for both -- philanthropy and atheltics. Who cares? It's a good news story whether Hajdu thinks so or not. 

    And long overdue in either case.... as long as Hajdu's not the one saying it, right?

    It does make a difference. And its not a "strange" addendum. Whether or not a person is being honored as a benefactor or for athletic accomplishment matters very much in Hadju's contention that the honor was "long overdue." As pointed out, Pollard was in the very first Athletic Hall of Fame Class. Hadju simply wants readers of his tweets to see how "woke" he is by implying the University somehow overlooked Pollard. Except in this case as usual, Hadju is FOS.

    You left out the part about Hylsop being a benefactor. (another poster pointed it out) He wasn't honored with the naming of the arena for his baseball prowess. Just like Ralph wasn't given the honor of Ralph Engelstad Arena's name for his goal tending. Both were benefactors. Convenient omission if you're trying to paint my comments in a particular direction. My comments were not on the appropriateness of the Pollard honor. I believe it is appropriate.

    My point is and has always been about the LONG OVERDUE comment by Hadju. The naming of the HPC for a student-athlete is unprecedented. No other building (athletic or otherwise) has been named in honor of a student-athlete based in whole or part upon their athletic achievement. (Mr. Pollard is a historic UND figure as well) Therefore, it is not overdue. Nobody else has had this honor. Fritz Pollard, Jr. was not overlooked in favor of other student-athletes. The "long overdue" comment is simply Hadju being Hadju. 

    Picking nits. Okay, maybe. But I have seen similar tripe from Hadju aimed at the University ever since he left. I hope he didn't let the door hit him in the ass on his way out.

    Maybe you miss him being in the employee lounge.

    Challenge accepted.

    On July 17, 1981, the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education officially changed the named of the (UND) Fieldhouse to the Hyslop Sports Center in honor of W. Kenneth Hyslop, a UND baseball player from 1904-06....

    You cut the story off short. Was Hyslop honored for his playing days or philanthropy? Makes a difference.

    Did not know that. Stand corrected.  Thanks for the research. 1906 to 1981 = 75 years. 1936 to 2021 = 85 years. Overdue. Ok. But Hadju still suspect. That's a hill I'm willing to die on.

  8. Oh I think it's great. Primary tenants are football and T&F. The right thing for many reasons. Just don't understand the "long-overdue" comment from Hadju. Other than , since his UND departure, he's been quite critical of UND administration. Leaving was his decision,  but acts like he has an ax to grind.

  9. Why is it "long overdue?" Name another campus building named in honor of a student athlete. Well, I'm waiting... Ralph doesn't count. To say it's long overdue, there must be precedent. A history of naming athletic buildings after athletic alumni. It's a fitting and great honor, but hardly "overdue " given this naming is the first of its kind.

    I guess "don't question the motives of Hockey God Hadju." He has always been and will continue to be a smug, holier than thou jackass.

    Fitting name to attach to the HPC. I do find it interesting, however, that J. Hadju had to weigh in on it via twitter calling the naming "long overdue." Really Hadju? The building opened in 2015. Nothing about it has been long. So glad that smug SJW moved on from UND. Blame Canada, ya hoser.

    Truth is there aren’t many teams that can compete with what su has recently done in football. On the field success along with fan and admin support. 
     

    That said, I enjoy my school and love UND football and UND sports. It has given me many years of fun. In the up times and down years.

    and I like Busch light but don’t chew - yuck chewing

    I have Busch Light in my fridge. It was an attempt to stoke the flames of a 127 yr old rivalry as we head into a season. Sarcasm, satire, smack, whatever. Didn't expect anyone to view it as an editorial.

    Generally speaking this is true in hockey.    But for football and basketball?  No way.  Tons of those kids come from environments well below "average joe" standards.   

    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.

  13. 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

    This dancing the fine line of politics.

    I say that because a vote was taken by a city council regarding MPLS PD. That’s fair topic. But not here. 

    And no further. Thank you. 

    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.

    I'm pretty comfortable in this discussion but I appreciate the advice Mr. Philome. 

    And, there you go again. We know what you are. Pretty clear. You hide it pretty well from your employer and your church. Sad.

  16. 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.

    The accusers are the victims in this situation. Who are you (or any of us) to tell people whether they should be offended or not. Especially about a racial slur.

    I live in 2020, where the teachings of Jesus are largely ignored by my fellow Christians. I don't see those being offended as casting stones.

    Almost certain Sicatoka's Bible qoute is for the benefit of posters on this board.

    I believe the accusation was "hostile and abusive".
    I believe the accuser (NCAA) stepped back from that claim as a part of the settlement agreement. 

    < enter the lawyers to check my recollections > 

    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.

  19. 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.

    At this point it's probably better for all parties. 

    (I don't know details of what has or has not transpired; however, if there's this much uproar will they still be able to be students and student-athletes without constant "reminders" that will come ungracefully.) 

    You mean kinda like referring to the hockey team as the Fighting Sioux?
