    Plenty of reasons for people not being able to make the trip as planned. But in my opinion, not "wanting" to follow the guidelines of a private business is a pretty weak argument for skipping out on a trip that's been almost 2 years in the making. Just my thoughts though. I have no doubt you have your own.

    There has been plenty of tickets for face value available for the last 6-8 months at minimum, well before any mandate was announced. Appears it gives some people cover and feel better about not going though.
  3. Must have been working too hard in the oil patch to catch the announcement from almost 2 months ago.
  4. To a degree, yes, obviously it slows momentum. But noticeable in attendance? Maybe a few hundred at most. I honestly think weather has a bigger impact on both student and walk-up attendance than a win last week would have. Just my opinion though, could be completely off base. Just some points of reference: In 2015 after UND opened with a win over Wyoming, the following week's home opener/Potato Bowl had 9,800 in attendance. In 2016 UND opened with road losses to Stony Brook and Bowling Green and attendance was 11,500 for the home opener/Potato Bowl vs South Dakota (which for the record was a top 10 game ever at the Alerus). In 2017, UND got beat pretty good by Utah and the following week had 12,000 in attendance for home opener/Potato Bowl. 2018, Potato Bowl was the 2nd home game and 4th of the season. 2019, it was the season opener.
  5. This was all the way from 20th Ave (Happy Harry's) through 38th (Target/Lowes). Right in front of the mall was particularly bad. Though I've still seen an accident or two even with the new turn lanes, but it is significantly better.
  6. Really doubt that many people were waiting for that result to buy their ticket. If they were, they weren't that bought in to begin with. Expect 8-9,000 unless students show up or there is a huge walk-up crowd. Maybe decent weather help. Not ideal but it is what it is.
  7. Lined moved from -8/-9 all the way down to -6.5. Surprised it went below 7. I'd assume that means money is coming in on UND.
  8. I mentioned that when I stopped by to watch fall camp that MVJ seemed to stick out in one-on-one drills in terms of motor and athleticism. 6'5" is tough to replace in terms of length but I don't think the drop-off will be too bad. That's not a knock on Haas, I just think wehave some guys who are ready to step in.
  9. Put this in for QV's package please!! (minus the OL downfield drawing the penalty)

    UND @ ISU

    I'd guess at least one of the runs was designed and there was another roll out or two where he had the option to dump it off or run if it was covered. Zero concern about Quincy not throwing yet. Those plays are in the playbook and no need to use them until needed. Opponents know this as well but still aren't sure how it will be deployed.

    Lot of young guys playing vanilla defense on this last drive. Nice hold to end it.

    UND @ ISU

    Masterful play calling. If he's covered, Tommy can get the two yards easily himself.

    UND @ ISU

    It's in the playbook and will come in time.

    Yikes. Glad to see Boltman in especially with Maag limping off there...

    UND @ ISU

    Strange what the proper execution does!

    UND @ ISU

    Two touchbacks is a nice start for the special teams

    UND @ ISU

    They are different situations.
  18. Add an hour or two of cold smoke before sous vide to up the flavor.

    UND @ ISU

    Belquist didn't travel. Boltman will test his leg before the game. This team is completely different than 2 years ago, UND rolls.
  20. Plenty of issues to go around. Some controllable, some not. They definitely compounded though.
  21. Within a month if I had to put my money on something. More than a couple reasons for the delays but it is going to be a big thing for downtown once its up and running.
  22. It will be done in phases just like The Lights in West Fargo. All 3 won't be done at once.
  23. Pete Carroll really going all in on pounding the rock this year.
  24. I'd expect a bit of a snap count, especially for BB. Test it out and see how it feels. But the prospect of both of them out there is a game changer for the offense.
