  1. Why would BG go now when they weren't interested the last time around?
  2. UND is in a position of power in any negotiation that would happen. The B1G needs UND, not the other way around. If they do go, it better be for guaranteed annual money. I still don't like it. The NCHC is self-sustaining at this point and is the premiere college hockey conference. It's where every new school wants to join and every current school in the footprint wants to join. If UMN and Wisco weren't forced to stay in the B1G, they'd be trying to join the conference as well.
  3. 2 RSF and 2 true freshmen is quite the young QB battle but I don't think adding him makes UND better. But I also have no clue.
  4. I agree and I apologize for my example only including the deficiency of the current administration. I also should have included that I don't want to see posts from Democrats saying that masks are necessary and that preventing the spread of coronavirus is reliant on everyone. Who knows which one is backed by facts and which one is bull$%!#. Regardless, let's keep it out of posts in other threads.
  5. I'm in no ways triggered by a thread I haven't read in months. And I'm not saying get rid of that thread. I do miss the SiouxSports where there were no politics involved in nearly every thread. @Oxbow6 showed in the Nashville thread that you can make a post that is relevant to the topic while not bringing politics into. That's 100% ok. But we don't need constant mentions in the threads about the political side of things. For example, I can say that the likelihood of the Nashville game continues to dwindle due to significantly more concern about venues holding large audiences. What I don't want to see in every thread are political comments, for example talking about how the Trump administration has severely neglected the importance of testing and tracing and that's why so many southern states are now reversing their opening strategies while the US has seen not only the highest number of positive tests but also a higher positive testing rate within those tests. I also don't want to see posts comparing the US to Europe and the number of positive cases, despite the same number of tests, because that's politics and shouldn't be allowed outside of the Dumpster Fire thread. If wanting to talk about sports on a site called SiouxSPORTS makes me a snowflake, I sincerely apologize to the true snowflakes that are offended by this idea.
  6. And yet UND agreed to it in the settlement. It wasn't originally required until UND sued.
  7. You are generally only eligible immediately if you drop down a division, not go up. But who knows anymore because there have been so many exceptions.
  8. I'm just picking this thread because I also have a thought and there's no reason to create new threads: Can we create an option to ignore entire threads? Before I completely quit SiouxSports because every thread turns into politics, it would be nice to choose to only see the ones that are actually related to sports. Or if 5 people flag a post as political, then it doesn't appear if you have a setting checked. Clearly, the politics have been allowed to go unchecked into threads other than the 5g and it has ruined this board.
  9. Reading Tom Miller's article, he's a walk on that wants to get into coaching. Was originally in touch with Rudy, which tells us a lot.
  10. 3 years of eligibility according to 360 guys:
  11. When they finally didn't get crushed by the Yankees in the playoffs.

    The Gemini Athletics logo that's under the neck ties on his jersey.

    Jerseys

    Looks very close to the style worn in at least 2016-17, except on this one you don't see the GA on the front. However, on this one from earlier in the year, it is clearly visible. It could also just have been a previous/current year photograph: Edit: Looks like it was first used in 2015-16 and they used old photos for their social media posts in-game:

    There is no record of a Wilson having played for UND WIH on collegehockeystats.net.
  15. The incredibly reliable and accurate gfhockey has been the only one to mention that bus service may be cut. Regardless, cutting the bus service should be seen as an attack on the poorer population in the GF area.
  16. It could be a bit of an unannounced relaxing of the rules for players who 1) had their season cut short due to Coronavirus and 2) have the blessing of their previous team.
  17. Your interpretation of that statistic is wrong. Just because more white people than black are shot and killed by police, it does not mean it's more likely to happen. The percentage of white criminals killed by police vs total white people arrested is smaller than that for blacks. Thus, the likelihood (i.e. percentage compared to total population) is actually significantly higher for black people.
  18. Being a white male is so tough in American. Combine it with being a Christian, and it's practically the most dangerous minority to be a part of!
  19. So, you're saying they weren't explicitly quite racist enough when they said the n-word on a video shared by themselves on social media?
  20. If you and others are offended by the term, then yes. I understand its history and am thus not offended by it, but to each their own.
  21. I just came to edit my post. I actually agree all 4 are just as offensive to the people they're targeting. And CS is there too.
  22. I would think at least 3 of those deserve punishment but none of them are close to the n-word.
  23. 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.
  24. But why didn't UND get approval from both tribes? Because the leaders of one felt it was racist. I think there will be a significant change in hockey's use of Sioux. I'll be honest, I have a lot of Sioux gear but it feels really inappropriate to wear clothing with a giant Sioux head.
