  1. Whether we believe Chauvin is guilty or not, we certainly cannot be proud of the way our system worked, or was worked, in this situation. Our politicians are assumed to have taken civics class, so they’re supposed to know about the separate branches of government, the Bill of rights, and a thing called due process. One always needs to put himself in the position of the person on trial. Can a fair trial, (and that’s what our system is supposed to guarantee) really be had when there is essentially a mob outside the courthouse threatening to pillage and burn if the “wrong” verdict is re
  2. Present roster has 4 girls from ND; 8 girls from MN; 1 from Iowa. Considering there aren’t that many DI players from ND, that seems pretty local.
  3. Agreed. But, it seems like UND never moves up as much as might be expected. Even if it's 5, that's impressive. And I know, who cares about the polls, but they do affect who's in the playoffs so no harm in watching them.
  4. "Logically," based on what happened yesterday, the top five this week would probably be something like this: 1) James Madison 2) Weber St. 3) Kennesaw 4) Nicholls 5) UND

  6. I believe Carl was the piano player there forever.
  7. I didn’t watch. Who said it? And in what context? Thanks.
  8. Saves lives? Really? Our governors decided long ago to make the hospitality industry the whipping boy for spreading Covid. But the science? Well, a recent Wall Street Journal editorial pointed out that the state of New York's own contract tracing data showed that restaurants & bars accounted for a mere 1.4% of the virus spread. But it didn't stop the state from shutting them down. Many of these restaurants have undertaken herculean efforts to make their customers safe from the virus spread, but that has had no effect on shutdown hysteria. It's the arbitrariness of these shutdown orders, th
  9. I don't want to get into politics either, but I'm kind of guessing the money ran the other way--from EGF to St Paul, in income and sales taxes, alcohol license fees, restaurant license fees, etc. etc. etc. Politicians tend to forget that fact--that any money the government has came from its constituents.
  10. They've only played 3 games so far, in a very weird season. And they've been in all 3, even against Marquette. She has not had a chance to show anything yet. She's a super competitor. (She coached her old high school team to 2 state championships in the interim between playing at UND and coaching here.) I think Mallory is going to surprise some people.
  11. So is there still a chance? https://www.wsj.com/articles/can-this-man-bring-college-presidents-to-their-senses-11597696478?mod=djemBestOfTheWeb If you can't get to the story because of a paywall, the gist of it is that Justin Fields at Ohio State is leading a movement to get the Big 10 to do an about face and reinstate the FB season. And it's not just him. Parents at other Big 10 institutions, including Michigan and Iowa, are urging the reinstatement of the season. It seems the Big 10 has been less than transparent on the final decision to cancel the season. No one knows the tally of the
  12. It looks like the reason is they couldn’t find any opponents. Same result, but I give them credit for making the effort.
  13. https://www.inforum.com/bison-media-zone/mens-sports/football/6614386-Bison-football-shooting-for-game-at-University-of-Nebraska I may, at long last, be giving up my hatred of all things Bison based on this. There are many quotes, from very intelligent and introspective people, that apply to our present situation---and not just talking about playing football this fall. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold." - Helen Keller We really can't avoid danger--we just think we can. Hiding under the bed isn'
  14. Yes, that is a convenient argument, but, if we can’t disprove systemic racism with data, then it can’t be done. We can’t climb inside peoples minds—yet. Until then, I guess we have to take their word for it—“inherent racism” I believe they call it.
  15. A Harvard economist, Roland Fryer, who happens to be black, and the youngest to ever achieve tenure at Harvard, set out to prove your premise, that blacks were shot more often than whites by white cops. However, Fryer found, as he put it: "The most surprising result I have found in my entire career." The result? That blacks are actually 23.5% less likely to be shot by cops than whites. His paper is entitled: "An Empirical Analysis of Racial Differences in Police Use of Force. It's on the internet." Fryer concluded: “It is plausible that racial differences in lower level uses of force ar
