    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.

    Maybe this has already been addressed by someone, but I did not see Ray Haas on the roster. Is he gone?

    Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    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?

    Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    If he did that, he would be calling McGarry a liar. I suspect he wanted to avoid doing that.

    Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    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true story is here but it should be pointed out that McGarry is also doing battle with UNLV, her alma mater, and has rescinded their $14m donation to the Med school there because the president was “pushed out.”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.

    Downtown Grand Forks

    You never answered my question. Any info about businesses lobbying for the change? Grand Forks planning decisions usually come from the bureaucrats in city hall. Not a downtown business owner, but weary of people blaming them for stuff our government does.

    Did you see anything about business owners lobbying for this? Yeah, they’re always getting something for free.

    This guy...doesn't have a freaking clue. Team looked bad tonight. No scorers except Klabo.

    So your “logic” is still: if they didn’t do it last year, they can’t do it this year. Glad you’re not Brew. I’m sure he doesn’t think that way, or any other coach, for that matter. Theyre 5-0 at home. Unless you were at the away games, all you’ve seen in person were wins. They can make up for the two close conference road losses when they get Idaho and EWU at home. They’re going to get better. They have been fun to watch.

    So, if they didn’t last year, they can’t this year? Not following your “logic.” They’ve got 3 excellent players, Klabo, Freije, and Morton. They’ve got 4 that might be good by the end of the year: Moton, Dooley, Dailey, and Reinke. Dooley is the big wild card. If she blossoms, it would solve our height shortage and give us another great competitor. I think they’ll be fun to watch—-already are.

    Brew always starts slow and gets better as the ladies learn the system. They’ll win the conference tourney.

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    You missed my implication. SU and Gopher fans don't want to hear about any other programs, as if those programs don't have a right to exist. Thats how some on here are sounding. Not being dramatic. However you're being Jackassian, as Barreiro would say. Now back to committed recruits...'

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    There are a lot of posters on here that are sounding like the Gopher & Bison fans we love to hate. Other programs have a right to exist. Other programs can be as good as, or better than, UND in any given year. Other programs have even gotten recruits that we would have liked to have had, or that we whiffed on, i.e. Lizzotte from GFRR. They also have a right to be proud of their programs. Other programs, SCSU, since we've been denigrating them, are better than, and more highly rated than UND right now. We hope to catch and pass them before the year is over, but we are where we are. Sheesh.

    I would have to respectfully disagree on most counts. I think the Bison are decent. Jacobsen, their pg, played very well as did several others. They have several big girls that are good and going to get better. They’re very young, almost all freshmen and sophomores. I’d say their new coach has recruited well and they will be very tough to beat next year. They weren’t easy this year—-game was tied at the end of three quarters. As for excitement, while it wasn’t Roebuck vs Ruley, both teams played hard and the crowd was into the game. Very fun game to watch.
