    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.

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

    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.

  8. 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?

    Yes it would be okay if they just listened to the lyrics, this was not the case. Do it in private if these two find joy in such a discriminating word. They should not put this out for the world to see. Personally, this made not only them look bad, but the whole university look bad. This other girl is involved with how she states they would say this word before bed. “Weird and random but funny” this other girls exact words. Seems odd.

    There are two girls in the ticket ad. One is in no way associated with the recording. To say otherwise is a lie.

    The other one did do something by being in that video. You can hear her laughing, this is not a laughing matter. Also on twitter there are screen shots of her using this racial slur in various different ways...

    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?

    A und volleyball player using a racial slur. On video. Seems that it was brought to Chaves attention and he didn’t do anything about it months ago. 

    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?

    He was a position coach at D2 UND before going to Jamestown as the HC.  He left Jamestown to go to SIU as position coach and later ST coordinator.  He left his MVFC job to be the HC at Northern.

    Dont correct posters on this forum with facts. They don't like that.

    I've never criticized a take of yours (don't think so at least :lol:).  Everyone has opinions, we don't all agree, that's life.

    Not saying you did. "Fair enough" was for your take. The rest was for the board meteorologists.

    That Idaho State game will forever be remembered as the "what the hell happened"?

    I am dumbfounded we didn't get our football team to Idaho earlier.  We knew the storm was coming and still our team ends up on a bus to Bemidji and touching down in Idaho like 14 hours before game time.

    They beat us, it's not an excuse, but a "what if?".  

    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 in GF given the conditions. And they were late to Bemidji. So, what about the storm. Local weather forecasters were arguing over the path and severity right up until it hit. So if the team was somehow able to leave early and nothing hits GF -- you 20/20 hindsight experts would criticize that as well. "The team laid around in Pocatello for 3 days. We were flat." Finally, do any of you really think Chaves and the coaches didn't discuss all options? I get criticized on here for my takes. But this forum is really all about the old saying about opinions. Its always 20/20 hindsight masquerading as expertise. Its the majority of you who have never done anything close to keeping a team together, leading a group in anything that come on and say sh*& about anything and everything as if you know. "That's what this site is for." You tear down everything and everyone in your path, then rip me for doing exactly what you do -- only to posters on the forum. The height of hypocrisy. I've been called old, angry, weak, everything on this board. I'll only admit to old :)

    I'm swinging the other way......first time I've said this but the students need to go from their current sections. Yesterday was just pathetic. My daughter hasn't missed a game and stays to the end but it's her and just 37 other students. Find a different section for them. 

    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.

    It's just so difficult to even have any hope of a win today. This team has crapped the bed so many times in big games when it counts, that to get your hopes up for a win will just leave you crushed.

    I'll be watching and hoping for a win but not really expecting one. And that's not how a fanbase should be.

    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.
