    for covid?

    I am sure many do. It sure wouldn't be a stretch if they do it, as immunizations of all kinds are required to attend school at all levels.  Are you against requiring immunizations to attend public school?  Just curious. 

    Saw this in the news a while back.  https://www.willistonherald.com/news/regional/north-dakota-universities-don-t-plan-on-requiring-covid-19-vaccine/article_ff4a2c6c-a116-11eb-863a-93dbd647d19b.html


    Jerry Rostad, vice chancellor for the North Dakota University System, said they are doing everything they can to encourage students and staff to get vaccinated.

    “When you look at what the Centers for Disease Control and our public health officials are saying, vaccinations are important in developing herd immunity in the fight against COVID-19,” he said.

    Rostad said the campuses are going to encourage everyone to get vaccinated, but that is the furthest the NDUS will be going.

    “I want to be clear we are stopping short; we will not be doing any kind of vaccination mandate or requirements,” he said.

    College sports and amateurism unlikely to survive in todays climate.  These justices are distancing themselves from their predecessors, who recognized a need to exempt the NCAA.  You can keep elevating the P5s and form smaller, tighter super leagues where athletes get some measure of their economic worth.  But how does the whole house of cards not fall?  

    Maybe the small handful of money making athletes at the small handful of money making schools will share with the rest to keep the rest of D1, all of D2/D3, and all of the non-revenue departments, teams, and schools afloat.  You know, out of the goodness of their hearts.

    I've seen people saying its a good move because no one knows that Dixie State is in Utah and aligns them more with schools in Utah. Then the one's, like me, that wondered why it was called Dixie State to begin with and think its an good move. Then you have the ones claiming "wokeness" and hate all change.

    Rahm was asymptomatic. If only there was a way he could have avoided contact tracing and having to be subjected to mandatory testing.

    And being coerced into taking a limited-authorization vaccine he wasn't personally prepared to take for the sole purpose of making other people feel better.

  5. No words to express how stupid it is to DQ Rahm for a "positive" COVID test at Muirfield.  Dude has a 6-shot lead heading into Sunday.  Is he even sick?  Has anyone proven any correlation between a "positive" test and illness or contagiousness?  Can he not play a solo round, or wear a mask?  Golf is played OUTDOORS, FFS.

    A tainted tournament, and an asterisk due for the eventual runner-up.  I mean, "winner."

    We're no closer to normal, sadly.

    Beautiful game-winning goal.

    And there ought to be a meme.


    Easily one of the best clutch players in recent memory.  Seems like he's always on the ice - if not in the mix - for the game winners in OT.

  7. The Fargo CBS affiliate just pulled the plug on the PGA Championship with a hole to play in the third round.  To show their pathetic newscast.  Idiots.

  9. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that any person who still cares enough to wear a mask voluntarily would choose not to work in a busy supermarket environment, handling items and currency that have been pawed and groped by rando members of the public standing inches away who now don't even need to wear masks.

    Who are we even pretending to protect from whom at this point?

    I see your points and if he was several years in I would agree. However with only a year or two into the job I would have liked to see some professionalism to offer the school more stability. 

    Loyalty, nobility, and professionalism aside, not many of us would (or could) turn the blind eye to 2X+ salary and a spot in the bigs.

    I mean, comparing what each city had to deal with as an aftermath of the flood isn't really apple to apples.

    Is it sacrilege to suggest that GF's survival of the flood was a Pyrrhic victory...that in celebrating the short-term recovery (itself a worthy achievement, and a tremendous source of civic and national pride), a mortal wound was ignored or overlooked?

  12. One could deduce that GF has been greatly hampered by the post-Cold War transition at the AFB.  Nukes -> Tankers -> Drones(?)...no inside info here, but from the outside the scaling down of the base's mission has not been kind to the local economy.  If they closed it altogether, would it even be felt at this point?

    During that same period, GF has endured cuts and austerity at UND, and more recently, a weak Canadian dollar.

    Recipe for disaster.

    Meanwhile, seems that everything keeps coming up aces for Fargo.

  13. If you read some of the articles in the Denver Post over the past couple of months, you may start to feel bad for MK because you will see that he really has been railroaded.  A chorus of the usual, noisy minority of suspects on campus, and their hymn of 'diversity and equality above all' sung as a thin veil for 'my way is the only way and I've no tolerance for any other viewpoint.'

  14. How ironic...the hosting of NCAA championships was a big (but obviously not the only) carrot in the retirement of UND's nickname. 

    Now, it may not even matter.  A ban occasioned not by the Fighting Sioux, but rather the Fighting SiouXXY.

    It comes down to balancing giving more kids the opportunity to play versus potentially competing for championships.   With (3) teams they will be very watered down.  The chances of competing with the top east teams would be cut dramatically.  I personally don't buy into the argument that creating a 3rd team will cause kids not to play, or for more kids to take the junior route.

    It's essentially the same situation with their girls team.

    Short-term hit, long-term gain.  It happens in growing suburbs all the time.  In a few years, they could all be contenders.

  16. I’m gonna buck the consensus and prevailing sentiment here and say that while rooting for St Cloud has its own merits, Duluth is the best (only?) choice in Pittsburgh.

    If UMD does not win it all, then the absolutely epic battle for the ages in Fargo Saturday night into Sunday morning will have been for naught.  Love or hate the Bulldogs, how can UND fans possibly want any other outcome than having gone toe-to-toe for 6+ hours with the eventual NC? Nothing else will soothe that wound, IMHO.

    Besides, as most have noted, it keeps the title in the NCHC for yet another year.

  17. Tests, tests, tests...

    One year in, has anyone even mathematically correlated a positive test to sickness, severity of sickness, or contagiousness?

    What confirmatory test protocols are in place to rule out false positives?

    Have QA/QC standards been implemented to ensure test validity and technician competence?

    Are PCR cycle counts still a variable?

    Has the specificity or affinity of the test kits for specific pathogens been characterized with any certainty?

    Maybe we were not as dominant as was thought.  

    The weight of expectation.

    Duluth, despite a hell of a run, still enjoys a little bit of anonymity (dwarfed by older cousin Goldie and next door superpower UND) and gets to be the perennial, ‘small school’ underdog.
