    NDSUCKS Dump Thread

    Serious question, how much was Entz running the defense and how much input did Klieman still have? My understanding was that Klieman's involvement was still pretty significant which is why some of the ndsu folks have some concern about the hire and subsequent DC hire.

    NDSUCKS Dump Thread

    An OL coach who was going to be fired, a DC who was demoted from a position coach to ST/asst position coach after 1 year at UNI and a recruiting coordinator who was 3-30 as a head coach at an NAIA school. Lot's of rocks to be thrown around about new hires I guess. Ask your new WR coach what he thinks of UND's new WR coach and then check with your former OC what he thinks of UND's new OL coach. Guessing the comments won't be what you want them to be. Young guys with lots to prove. But I guess the positive is, they don't have bad track records either.

    Scoreboard change

    The money for the scoreboard is not coming from UND's athletic budget. but for comparison: The cost of the scoreboard is the equivalent of the cost of 2-3 years of WIH expenses at UND. The ad revenue generated by the scoreboard will be more than than WIH did through ticket sales and other revenue sources. Obviously takes the student-athlete opportunities out of play but just puts things into perspective for the people complaining.

    Scoreboard change

    I was told they weren't going to be able to keep it on there due to the changes that were going to have to be made to support the new boards. They would only be able to pull it off if they could use the same frame, which didn't sound possible. Either they figured out a way to do it or they are just showing it in the rendering to keep people from complaining until it is too late.

    There is a reason for that one and it wasn't that he thought taking a significant pay cut to move to Fargo was some sort of promotion. He was making $350K/year at Rutgers, his new salary is likely around 25-35% of that.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    That article is 14 months old and I can't find anything confirming or even a passing mention that it has made any headway since then.

    And I'm sure sure the 20,000 (!!!) post thread about UND on the MooU board is full of stuff that affects Ndsu...

    Kennedy vs donors... again?

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong on this but if I remember correctly, part of the reason it got cut was with how the budget cuts were allocated. While I'm not sure the course was actually profitable each year (though very close to break-even one way or another), when looking at the budgets, it was about a $300K line item that is pretty non-essential to the mission of the University (much more so than housing or dining), especially when the golf teams don't even utilize it. And that number is the annual operating costs and wouldn't include any upgrades or capital needs of the course. Closing it didn't really move the needle one way or another on the profit side, it does make an impact in terms of cutting a percentage of revenues/budgeted funds, which is what the state mandated cuts were based off of. Also, to be clear, only 25% of the land the golf course sat on was gifted to the University, the remaining 75% was purchased. I don't know what land prices were in 1962 and whether it was sold at a discount, but UND paid $300 acre for 75% of the land, with the remainder being given. What's interesting is the current size of the course is only 67.5 acres, much smaller than the original 150 acres.

    The appeal was denied on Wednesday before the team left, which is why he didn't travel.

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Denver only cares about Denver. They moved into a conference that didn't require them to change their sports offerings. They preferred to move to the West Coast Conference but that would have required them to add sports which would have bloated their athletic budget. The Summit didn't care and Denver wasn't sticking around the WAC with the band of misfits. It is a safe bet that they didn't make a decision in late 2012 to join the Summit because they knew UND going to join it 6 years later and just 2 years after UND announced it was joining the Big Sky. Nov, 2010 - UND accepted into Big Sky July, 2012 - UND officially a Big Sky member ????? - Denver realizes UND isn't going FBS in the Big Sky, but instead joining the Summit and will go FBS with that league Nov, 2012 - Denver accepted in Summit July, 2013 - Denver officially a Summit member January, 2017 - UND accepted into Summit July, 2018 - UND officially a Summit member

    Is he part of the same group of guys who wrote a nice big fluff piece about the hiring of a new assistant coach shortly after he was hired and then failed to mention the DUI he got in between getting hired and the article being written which was a span of a few weeks? Or same group who failed to report a player being charged with Disorderly Conduct/Fighting the night of a quarterfinal game and then being allowed to play in the semis and finals? They did manage a quick comment that he was suspended for the season opener this year against Cal Poly but gave zero details on why other than "in house punishment". Yeah, sounds like a group that is all over reporting things like this. Both of the above examples are public record if you don't believe me. You're about 10 years behind on how things are handled. The Fargo media is scared to death to lose access like they were threatened with under Bohl and they've continued on, holding back plenty of stories or doing minimal reporting by just stating it was an "in-house punishment" or "violation of team rules" with no details on why. I'll concede that there are times, that is the most information you are going to get or at least able to go public with, but when your employer has the reports that have the reasons on them and you ignore it, it is intentional.

    That's your opinion and nothing more. You don't think it's strange that an internet reporter was the one who "broke" the story shortly before game time when at least one player, who was a starter, didn't even make the trip? The team had been there since Thursday and Forum Communications had multiple reporters there the whole time and just happened not to notice. That's besides hearing that at least one or two reporters flat out knew and chose not to report it.

    So players are taking substances that are on the list without pepper paperwork? Interesting angle to take, nothing to see I guess, just a clerical error with multiple players.

    Well then that's changed. I know that early in this current run, there were games against some big time programs turned down for various reasons.
