    UND to cut women's hockey

    She got to go somewhere where she could win instead of underperform. Two of the best players in the world (plus how many Olympians) couldn't do better than a T-2 in conference and zero NCAA wins.

    Coach Jones?

    With all that success, I assume attendance is on the rise?

    Minimum of 2 spots are required to be purchased anyway (one to park, minimum of one to actually tailgate). But if $30 instead of $10 or $20 is the determining factor on whether you're going to tailgate or not, then I question how much you really wanted to. I really don't think they are missing out on a ton of people on this. If people don't want to (or are unable) to commit to the whole year, there should be a little bit of a premium involved. If $15/spot is too steep, they have continued to try to improve Tailgate Village for those who don't want to set up spots, plus the Champions Club tent always has free food for members.

    Coach Jones?

    I think that's a bit of hyperbole and there is definitely room for debate. Yes, fresh off of two impressive years at Mayville considering where they were when he started but his only experience outside of NAIA at the time was at 3 years at NDSU as a director of basketball operations when they weren't exactly lighting the world on fire in the NCC. There was no guarantee that was going to translate, unless of course you get the advantage of hindsight. If he was a true "rising star" in 2006 like you claim, I feel like he would have gotten his first head coaching job outside of Mayville before 2014 when he left Tim Miles side. I'm not diminishing what he's accomplished at all, he's done a good job where he's been.

    Don't go or don't set up their own spots? There's plenty of other options for those that don't want to set up their own spots between vendors that set up and wandering up to pretty much any group. And I'm guessing the Alerus Center isn't making much money off tailgating by the time everything is paid for. Pretty confident that the price of a spot (at whatever price) is one of the cheaper things on our list of expenses when we tailgate. Chances are, if you need more than 2 spots, you're part of a group and the cost per/person becomes pretty minimal when you start adding in food, beverages, etc.

    Coach Jones?

    Just pointing out how ridiculous it is to criticize a decision made 13 years ago based on today's information like you knew it was the wrong decision all along. I don't know the details of why Smith wasn't even a finalist, but hiring Jones, at least at the time, wasn't considered a bad hire let alone a blunder .

    There's 6 home games instead of 5 this year and I doubt they are raising the price. Worst case, you can still park in your tailgating spot and go inside to the Champions Club tablegate at Playmakers for the last game. The November 17 game last season was probably one of most fun tailgates our group had, snow and all. I'd love to see some tailgating in December this year and happily pay for the chance to do so. I think your math is off on some of this. Reserved/season spots are $20/spot/game in Fargo. These spots are also determined on a priority point basis, so unless you're a big money donor, you aren't getting a spot. Single game spots are $5/spot in Fargo, if you can get them, which for most games requires staying overnight on the street in your vehicle. For UND the price has been $50/spot for the whole season for reserved/season, regardless on how many games there has been (between 5-7). Call it $10/game since 5 has been the norm. This is a first come/first serve basis, at this point in time, anyone can get an open spot regardless of how much they donate assuming there are some available. Single game spots are $15/spot, so a $5 markup/spot/game if you don't want to commit to a whole season. I can't remember the price, but I believe non-tailgate parking is $5/vehicle. The price to tailgate is cheap. The only group that could even remotely be frustrated with it is those who only want to tailgate for a couple games year and feel like they are being overcharged, but the price/spot is only $5 than what a season pass costs, no different than how tickets work (season tickets cheaper/game than single game tickets). I have a bigger issue with people who have season passes and either don't use them or show up 1 an hour or so before the game and drive through lot to use their spot as a parking spot. They should have a set time when vehicles are no longer permitted to drive in the reserved spot area.

    True and I wish it was flipped in favor of UND. But in the grand scheme of things, it appears people still don't know the difference between UND and NDSU.

    2019-2020 Recruiting

    http://fccrams.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/bios/Ethan_Richardson I assume he would come in as a junior? Has been at Fresno City College for 3 years. Played 8 games as a true freshman in 2016-17, redshirted in 2017-18 and then played 32 games this season. Would make sense to help even out the classes since Panoam and Saddler are listed as the only two scholarship players in that class.

    Time to Boo Berry?

    It is, but sometimes a little logic needs to apply to people's opinions. I didn't tell anyone how anything was going to be, just providing some real world numbers that, regardless of what people think, play a huge role into future job security. And a serious LOL at you lecturing people on supposed pontificating.

    Time to Boo Berry?

    True. However I'm assuming Berry's contract is typical to almost all other coaches contract where the full amount is guaranteed with the only relief the University would see is an offset if the individual takes another job and the requirement then only becomes they have to make up any difference between what was owed and what the individual is currently making. Maybe there is an opportunity for a lump some buyout, but not sure why most people would take that option in this particular situation.

    It's easier to ignore that the 2013/14 Oklahoma team had a starting lineup that was 1 senior, 3 sophomores and a true freshman and the only other upperclassman who could even be considered a contributor averaged 6/3 in 15 minutes/game over the season. Can't imagine how that Oklahoma team got better over the next 2 years considering all 4 underclassman of that squad stuck around. As was previously stated, it was a good win, but Oklahoma was picked to be over-ranked and upset before brackets came out.
