    NDSUCKS Dump Thread

    Saw a twitter post from an ndsu fan saying they're jealous of UND's FBS schedule. Has Matt Larsen scheduled any fbs games? Seems like they have many gaps in future years.

    Certainly it's more than two.

    University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Something that has happened at every other university in the last 12 years and for every school other than DU, it was this decade. DUs two misses were the two years immediately following their back to back titles. Did they suddenly no longer become an elite program?

    And Brad knows all of them, which is why it's mighty helpful to be a good friend of his. And why Stoney should be a highly trusted poster about unreported issues.

    So what you're saying is that getting a win over Wyoming is nothing special because it is easy to do? Tell me, how has NDSU fared against the Cowboys?

    WSJ: Oil Booms in North Dakota

    The goal of the U.S. was to make it to the moon. They achieved that goal, but times change and it doesn't make sense to continue to keep that as your goal. Same with energy. You don't need to scrap those fuels all together right now, but you need to supplement it with something that is sustainable. A couple hundred miles from me, a city that was built 400 years ago is going to be destroyed because of the push for coal mining. That makes zero sense. You don't need to expand the use of fossil fuels, every country should be expanding the use of renewable energy and working toward making that sustainable.

    Better yet, just don't return.

    Do you realize what a budget deficit is? When you need to cut things just to get back to breaking even, you don't suddenly become "flush" with money.

    How does your NDSU afford the move to FBS? They can't increase attendance without building a new stadium and this time won't be able to do it with the city's help. Sports 2-4 are floundering and have been a mess recently. Attendance can only go up slightly, but you see that happening with a new schedule of MAC teams that nobody in Fargo cares about? The savings from the Summit/MVFC are big for the Dakota schools and if NDSU goes FBS, they'll lose that in order to play games against exciting teams like Eastern Michigan, Kent State and Buffalo. Take a look at the average MAC home football schedule against FBS opponents: -Syracuse (ACC) at Western Michigan, on Aug. 31 (CBS Sports Network); -Cincinnati (American) at Miami on Sept. 8 (at Paul Brown Stadium); -Kansas (Big-12) at Central Michigan on Sept. 8; -Maryland (Big Ten) at Bowling Green on Sept. 8; -Utah (Pac-12) at NIU on Sept. 8; -Miami (Fla.) (ACC) at Toledo on Sept. 15; -Western Kentucky (C-USA) at Ball State on Sept. 22; -Army (Independent) at Buffalo on Sept. 29; -UMass (Independent) at Ohio on Sept. 29; -Army (Independent) at Eastern Michigan on Oct. 27. I don't think moving up makes sense for any of the local schools because attendance can't grow with the cost of the move. Even with new stadiums, you'll run out of people to go to games. Throw in a few down years, the ability to not play for a national championship and games against teams people have never heard of and you're not generating the millions of dollars it's going to cost to move up.

    2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    Yeah, it was a commitment to spending the resources to remain relevant in hockey. At the time the NCHC was formed, Mankato was considered one of the budget-conscious schools in the WCHA.

    Pairwise 2018-19

    The main thing that gives me hope is UND has a pretty good goalie and that's all it takes late in the season and playoffs. He has given this team a chance to win every night and I could see him putting together a string of dominant performances.

    Campus Closed

    There was a blizzard a few years back in Colorado Springs. Barely anyone was out, but my friend that I met at UND and I went to a local bar. One other customer there so we started chatting. He was a UND grad too. Not surprising the 3 people at a bar during a blizzard were from UND.

    In this case, it is two separate words as may be is being used as a modal and not as the adverb maybe. If you were going to complain about grammar, it would have been about the lack of the word It to start the sentence.
