  1. What part do you want me to explain to you ? I DONT care if he is in the community BUT I agree a coach SHOULD be involved in the community. But if we had a coach who was a hermit and never came out of their office but won championships. That's what I care about. I don't buy tickets when teams are losing and win 1 game game a year but the coach is out in the community. In the end that means nothing. Winning is all that counts in sports. And fans don't buy tickets to losing teams .
  2. So basically we want a homer coach that loves Grand Forks and goes out in the community and wins one game a year. That should bring alot fans to the games. I agree a coach should be out in the community, love Grand Forks and bleed Green. But if they dont win games none of that matters. To me the most important thing is a good coach and if he or she is a community great. I would take a Pryor that had a fun team to watch and won then someone who loves UND and loses. I am not from here and not a alumni. As a fan I dont care how much I see him around town. I come to games when they win not when they show up to fundraisers. If they lose and are terrible no one has interest. You can argue that all you want but fans dont want to see horrible teams no matter what sport. Also it wasnt Pryor's fault the team went 1-28. It was a unfortunate dismissal of two very good players and hiring a assistant coach that has no business being a head coach.
  3. We need a coach who can coach, win and recruit kids. I dont care if they buy into community, if this is a stepping stone for a coach let it be. We need someone to build the program to hand off to another coach that can keep it going. The days of coaches staying here their whole careers is probably gone. Division 1 athletics is different then Division 2.
  4. My Point is this A.D just likes to promote the assistant coaches and UND connections. I dont believe this A.D hired the last three coaches? He didnt do a national search for it. Also for the woman's head basketball coach position. We fire the head coach promote the assistant to interim coach. That coach wins ONE game during the year and then we hire her as the new head coach.?? I am saying the current A.D needs to do more then just worry about hockey. UND sports has slowly went down hill since his hire in my opinion.
  5. NO more homer hires!! We need to do a nation wide search and get the BEST candidate. UND can not keep hiring people who have tires or assistant coaches of head coaches that are fired. We dont need to hire a former athlete that went here either. Go look for the best coach! Look at what NDSU did with their womens basketball coach hire. He turned that program around in 2 years. We need new blood and ideas for this program.
  6. I have no idea why Nero gets so many chances with coach. Someone else should have his minutes
  7. Did covid hit the team ? Only 4 on the bench for Weber game
  8. Look alot better in the second half. Some of these new players need to play more. The rotation looks alot better in the second half
  9. I'm at the game tonight against Crookston. We are down by 3 at half time to a team picked dead last in their division of the northern sun conference. This is going to be a very long year for basketball in grand forks this year.
  10. Now if we would have just took the FG instead of going for it on 4th !!
  11. I am going to take some things back I have said about Coach. On paper she looks to have signed some really good recruits. I hope this will translate into wins now. I will be cheering for them all year to succeed.
  12. How about UND do a national coaching search instead of always hiring someone with UND ties. Again looking from the outside, but I see this all the time that a UND former student, assistant coach etc is hired over some quality candidates outside of the school. Just like the women's basketball hire. I am going to give her a break because she has done some good recruiting now it just needs to translate to coaching wins. But this volleyball hire looked like a disaster hire from the beginning.
  13. I wonder where they will be located? It would be nice to have some restaurants on the south side of town. I have eaten at several Freddy's always good food and different fast food then your typical fast food restaurant.
  14. Who or what is Molly Yeh? What kind of food?
  15. Is this fact? Or just hoping to get here. I have not heard anything they have coming here yet. I agree chicken is much better then Bdubs food in general is.
  16. I ate at the Charros in Bismarck this weekend and I asked about the Grand Forks opening date. They told me August to early September. Sounds like the owner is making some improvements to this location and wants to make sure its done right. I was told alot of staff from the Bismarck restaurant will be coming to work here. One thing different from the restaurants is that here they will be making their own tortillas. Also there was a hour wait to get in to the restaurant and its been open for 3 years there, but it was worth the wait!
  17. That does look like a good get for UND! Do you know which Big 12 and Big 10 schools she had offers from?
  18. I ate at the one in Bemidji (under a different name ) and was very impressed. I also have tried to eat at the one in Bismarck and every time the waiting list was to long and I never wanted to wait that long. Excited for a new Mexican restaurant in town. Their Facebook page says they will be open by July. Any word when?
  19. Super value bought hornbackers . Hugo's negotiated with them that if they close their grand forks store they would change to the super value off brand of products. Super value gets money from selling their off brand to Hugo's and closes a marginal store . Only ones that lose are the people of grand forks losing another choice for a grocery store and Hugo's keeps their monopoly in town. I wish someone would come in and get rid of that monopoly. We don't need 6 Hugo's in town.
  20. https://t.co/E0fnZIl9Pf?amp=1 Looks like we lost out on Isaac Mushila. I was really hoping we could land this one....
  21. This is the year to do it because they all have 3 years of eligibility left. Get their freshman years out of the way and get them for the best years of their careers. Still time to mold them into the players you want.
  22. https://www.dnronline.com/sports/dukes-add-transfer-guard-ihenacho/article_384bed10-be7d-5ea5-ab69-09df0a9ab89e.html Article says he wants a better community around him ? good luck to him but that's a lateral move in my opinion. We need guys that want to be here. I just hope it's not the coach and it's the players he recruited
  23. Looks like he gets to the foul line alot. Tells me he takes it to the rim. Shoots a good percentage too. Let's get him !!!
