  1. I was there too and it was probably the worst game I have ever attended. It was like a nightmare happening in slow motion.
  2. I do have to say that I am not a fan of hs kids transferring for athletics. That's what college is for. I don't have any experience with being the parent of an elite player but I do as a parent of a good player who was displaced by kids that transferred. We had 5, 4 and 3 kids transfer to play basketball at my son's grade level during his freshman, sophomore and junior years. 12 new players that weren't there when the local kids were in 8th grade. That doesn't even count the ones that came in the grades around him. We had 40 kids playing travel basketball in his 8th grade class with two top playing at the top 'A' level. By their senior year there was only one still playing and he was on the jv. Most of those kids didn't move into the district but claimed hardship or faked an address to get in. I have heard of parents who have had 'marital problems' and the father moves into an apartment in the desired district. After the child's sports season is done they miraculously reconciled and he moved back into the family home. That's an extreme example but if one or two come in it has a big impact on one or two local players and their families.
  3. Hard to argue that this isn't a tougher schedule than he would get playing at a ND high school.
  4. We were also told by some that donations would dry up when the Sioux name went away. Apparently that didn't happen either.
  5. I don't see Tyus Carter on the roster anymore. Did he leave the team?
  6. I cannot confirm that. There were some big dudes in that group.
  7. Am in GF today so I stopped by practice this morning. Not much to see with only helmets on today. Good tempo at practice and some good looking athletes.
  8. Decision on SCSU title IX suit. Not good for the admin Federal judge: St. Cloud State athletics fails to provide equal opportunity to women. http://strib.mn/3198usE

    I did get a receipt in the mail
  11. Might have been only a short term thing. Some years ago I tried making it at home. I was not impressed. From what I can find it was a thing for a while in late '60's. That would make sense regarding the timeline.
  12. I played youth hockey in there. I remember the concession stand selling hot Dr. Pepper. Not sure I have seen that anywhere else.
