    Awesome! Are you still going to give it to the students now that they’ve moved? Or will you have to find some STH to do it?

    Good question.  I didn't realize the students had been moved officially.  Will have to figure it out in the fall.

    Great story - thanks for sharing and what you do, many fans love the Sack City sign. TV cameras find a way of giving it's credit due. Thanks again. Hope to C U tailgating in the fall!

    Hope so too.  
    Somehow it’s become Sickies Sack City at the Alerus.  Still waiting for a free burger and beer or two.

    This is Siouxperman8 's.
    Official as it gets, just wasn't at the crime scene.
    I'll let the author expound?

    There was a sack city sign years ago in the DII era and I loved it.   At tailgating a few years ago a guy told me he had done the original one but it was long gone.

    It inspired me to make my own so I enlisted my wife to help me.  She thought I was crazy but after a short trip to the craft/fabric store we made it.  I had an old picture of the original and tried to match the lettering as best as I could. 

    We hang it behind the visitors bench but sit on the other side so we enlist the students sitting by it to run the thing during games.  Last year we had to move it down closer to the band because there were a group of students that hung over the railing and pounded on it while harrassing the visitors.  They must have pregamed pretty hard because they were lit up for every game.  I fully endorse the work that they were doing but it was a little hard on the sign and the paper numbers.  I figure it just added some character to it. :)

    We live in the TC and won't be at any games this spring but will be back in full force next fall.

  4. Won't be making any of the games this spring.  Wish I had gotten our Sack City sign there today.  Would have been busy. 

    Plan to hang it in our house next week and work it here.  

    Great second half today.  Ran the ball down their throats.

    Time to what, fire Kostich?  Didn't you see all the posts earlier about kickers, isn't much Kostich can do to coach kickers up.  Either the are good or they are not. Missed extra point is not Kostich's fault. 

    True.  Still disappointing to miss xpt in that situation.

    It kind of depends on what you are looking for...  I have both ESPN+ and Midco Plus.  ESPN+ picks up the Midco broadcast.  ESPN+ typically doesn't produce the games.  If is in on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPN3 it is typically ESPN produced.  I like the MidcoPlus service because I am from South Dakota I enjoy watching all the local teams and action.  And Midco does a great job.  I am always impressed with the production quality it is outstanding and Alex H. is bombtastic (got that from my kids, I guess its a thing).  

    thanks for the insight.  I am starting with ESPN+ but might add Midco later to watch other UND teams.

    I'm excited for some UND football!!  Hearing Boltmann is probably out though is a huge buzzkill.  I think he would have gotten a fair amount of snaps at QB today, especially if Tommy Gun struggles to move the team. 

    Did they say what’s wrong with Boltzmann?  I missed it

    I would assume so, but this will be the first broadcast from Grand Forks on ESPN+ (right?), so how would one know for sure?

    I was hoping someone had an idea of what they normally do from other venues. I’ve never had reason to use the service. 

  9. Anyone have experience with the Midco streaming app?  Trying to decide between that and ESPN+.  Also - any idea what  ESPN+ uses for announcers?  Do they just pick up Heinert and the local broadcast?
