  1. I always wonder about people that call others "band wagon" fans. It's as if they're saying they are the only true fans and no one else has a right to support their team. But, how much fun would it be if fandom were limited to only "true" fans? Isn't it a big part of the fun when we have lots of fans, and the Ralph is raucous, and we dominate opposing teams' arenas, and we party like rock stars in Vegas, and Tampa, and Nashville? C'mon, we all have at least one thing in common--we love the Fighting Sioux! And it doesn't matter how old or how new the love is. All that matters is the love!

  3. 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...

    I think people get to caught up with hiring to WIN a press conference. Need to focus on person whom can be winning the Summit. If at end of day Chaves picks THAT coach, we will be in great hands. Seems like a lot of "wishing and hoping" for succes with the Boschee name. UND needs a coach that can OUT RECRUIT others in the league, primarily, UNO, NDSU and the Jack's of Brookings. Still believe Herbst at UWGB is the right person. Coached at UND in past, Grand Forks ties, Been in a coach in the league and recruited the level of Summit and Horizon, won at U of Mary as a head coach (probably most impressive item on list). I didnt realize he was also a head JC coach as well....the overall coaching experience, plus time at Division I programs, seems invaluable.

    Any idea what next steps are now that the posting has closed?

    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...

    the owner of speedway owned space aliens iirc...when they sold the building to sakura they then and went and bought speedway and have done a smash up job over there...every ford 150 is there for crappy beer night!!!!

    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!

    I have to say I really want to be a Kennedy supporter.  Given his business and political background, I hoped he might be a breath of fresh air compared to most typical University presidents.  

    But now given his disasterous decision to move UND sports to the SumValley, coupled with the fact that he is apparently alienating the University's largest benefactor, me thinks this guy might be completely inept and needs to go away.

    Whether or not everything McGarry says is true, it is obvious she is pissed off, and the relationship is weak at best.

    Funny that Kennedy doesn't flat out deny saying the things McGarry has alleged.  Only that he doesn't "recall" saying most of them.........

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

    Easy big downtown business owner.

    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.

    All the business owners that want a free face lift and shot in the arm.

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

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

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

    They haven't won the conference tournament since 2014. That is 3 (going on 4) years. That is my "logic".

    And I don't think blowing late game leads on a regular basis is "fun to watch". Neither are all the turnovers.

    They have talent, but they are grossly underachieving right now.

    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.

    You mean like they did last year? Oh wait.......:silly:

    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.

    Agreed. I am sick and tired of this team underachieving. Brewster has talent to work with, but they can't hold leads and lose games they shouldn't lose. You rarely saw one of Roebuck's teams blow big leads late in the game.

    I think after Jones, Brewster is #2 on the coaching hot seat.

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