What's Needed At The Alerus?

Alerus Center definitely half-assed it for a long time ... the gameday atmosphere committee and new Alerus Center management seems to be making a difference so far, though (consider new sound system).

While I love the new sound system and lights that the Alerus Center will be getting, I don't know if either the committee or the new management group had anything to do with them. The committee has had like one meeting and the new management team hasn't been in charge more than two weeks. A sound system and new installation of lights isn't something that just happens on a whim, that is something that is built into the budget well ahead of time.

Forgot to mention management team

Totally agree, many complaints have been made over the last few years. Improvements will be much appreciated.

Reindeau decleater against UNC.  Possibly the biggest hit I've seen.  

Cole Reyes knocking out UNC running back.....

You could hear the Reindeau hit all over the stadium - If I had to name one single play that turned our program around this would be it.

"One great change coming is an upgrade to the Alerus Center's lighting and sound systems. It's not due to the new committee, but was simply a renovation taken on by the Alerus Center. It was desperately needed and should make a noticeable difference this season."

 

These improvements will be magic and will be on board for this season!!! Was sooooooooooo much needed.

With this and the committee's actions, a football experience in 2020 when we are in the MVFC should be quite a different experience that the games of last year.

The Bizon will be shocked when they show up in the Hawk's Nest in 2020, and they will slip and slide.  Tickets will be a premium for that game!!!

Is it August yet? Absolutely.

Still waiting patiently for the 2020 conference schedule you got your hands on to be released.

Are you praying the MVFC Gods keep the Bison out of Grand Forks forever?

Nope. I don't mind one way or the other.

How ironic is it that during the season we amp up most game day components, the most crucial element goes missing: wins.

For those who were on the football team, is our locker room at the Alerus a big issue?  Is having a new locker room in the HPC/renovated locker room in Memorial more important than a nice gameday locker room?

For me the Alerus lockers were fine, we really only used them the week or part of the week of home games.  Nice lockers in Memorial would be more important in my opinion because 95% of your "locker time" is at Memorial with spring ball, fall camp, away game weeks, winter and summer strength and conditioning .

I agree. The Alerus could use a little facelift but I’m not sure it would be worth it. At memorial it would absolutely be worth it.

A winning team again is what’s needed at the Alerus. I want Bubba to have success and have a sold out game. 

Times ticking. Still optimistic.

I predict a bounce-back season in 2018. #daybyday
