  1. Ah, hubris...it’s only a matter of time now...
  2. Wow, what a fun game to watch. Up tempo, balanced scoring, good D, and the crowd... as good as it gets. Can't tell me that team couldn't have played with, or more likely beaten, any of the DI teams we've had here. Really miss that...
  3. Totally agree on hiring a coach that can win versus winning the press conference. Can UND prove it’s a legit DI school? The answer up to now has been obvious...
  4. You're not quite right. We eat there all the time and know the owners--Trish & Jim. They have always owned Speedway, but took it over from a manager that wasn't getting the job done back in 08 or 09. The also owned Boston's but couldn't work with the franchisor so they sold the building to Space Alien's. Love the Popper burger, cheeser cheesers (deep fried mac & cheese), queso, and steaks. And the Speedway sauce!
  5. Something else we suck at. How is our bowling team doing?
  6. Philly is a _ _ _ _ hole town for so many reasons. The Flyers couldn’t have handled this any worse if they tried. There’s s reason they suck. Hak should be happy to be out of there. But, otherwise, I love Philadelphia...
  7. Another effing “locker room problem” year? How many of those can we have? Good coaches don’t allow that to happen
  8. So was it I wa bu che, or E wa bu che? Was never sure. Did he not play on the 80 natty team?
  9. Please forgive my ignorance, but is there a place where I can find out who our committed recruits are for 2018, 2019, etc? I thought wiki showed that but it only goes thru 2015. Thanks for any help.

    2018 Season

    So, you've criticized Bubba, Rudolf, the O line, the offensive schemes, the defense, and the marketing department, in the last month alone, in addition to anyone saying anything positive about the 2018 team. You forgot to dump on the cheerleaders; I hear several of them weren't practicing their pyramids this summer. Being a fan usually means you actually like the team. And, being a fan, most of us would like to have positive thoughts for the new season that's on the horizon right now. Sure, it may not play out positively, but is it wrong for a fan to hope that it does? We can all castigate whomever we feel is responsible if, and when, everything goes south. It seems that you would rather predict failure and hope that you're right so you can say "I told you so." I guess I'd rather live in "UND fantasy land" than Nohopeville.

    2018 Season

    Maybe this has already been addressed by someone, but I did not see Ray Haas on the roster. Is he gone?
  12. So the Pepper also changed their hot sauce a while back. It’s thicker now, and in my opinion, not near as good. Anybody else have a problem with it?
  13. If he did that, he would be calling McGarry a liar. I suspect he wanted to avoid doing that.
  14. I don’t have any idea what the true story is here but it should be pointed out that McGarry is also doing battle with UNLV, her alma mater, and has rescinded their $14m donation to the Med school there because the president was “pushed out.” I understand big donors have significant influence, and that college presidents and governing boards can all be very obtuse, but how much control and influence do we want non-elected individuals to have with state run institutions? The fact that McGarry requested this interview tells me she intended to throw a grenade here, and hopes to get a certain result—-Kennedy gone, or Kennedy more agreeable to what she proposes. Again, I don’t know much about Kennedy, or his abilities, but these tactics by McGarry seem pretty strong-armed. They really put Kennedy in a difficult position. The Ralph donation wasn’t a contract with the devil, but UND certainly sold its soul to a certain extent, and it has to be somewhat frustrating for a college President not to have full control of its major sports—hockey, and men’s & womens b-ball.
