What Coronavirus means to UND Athletics

Recommended Posts

I like the last sentence in the third paragraph, just before the questions start. ???  

"All net profits it makes every year are turned over to the UND Athletics Department at the end of each event year."

No extension of time for UND season ticket renewals?    Really???

Do they still have the ability to pay in installments?

It means that while there is literally ZERO athletics going on in the entire country, we cannot talk about the virus and how it's being handled by the people in charge.  Because the mods said so.  

Instead let's talk about footb....I mean hock....I mean basketb......I mean well, ummmm.....

There is a little middle ground though, just look at all that has already been impacted by the virus.

1) Spring Practice Cancelled

2) Spring/Winter Sports wiped out

3) UND WBB coaching hire

4) Likely no HPC Phase 2 coming this year 

5) Recruiting issues

6) Long-term financial impact on UND/UND athletics/Grand Forks community and potential sponsor ships

Likely other impacts not even aware about on the UND athletic community.

I am reading a lot of chatter today about the NFL having a season. The models were wrong the entire time and the economy is going to re-open in May. :cool:

Let's start with the draft.  Drag it out for a week so have something to watch.

ESPN would certainly love this. It already is what a 3 day affair ? At least gives the talking heads something else to chat about

Yes, lets broadcast a 3 hr discussion on the long snapper the Vikes are drafting out of New Hampshire Community College in the 8th round.;)

Coronavirus means UND is getting way more hockey players back than they likely otherwise would have.  Still would prefer to be in Detroit for #9 right now, but at least it's something.

So are going to have a temperature check before entering the Alerus center for Football games.  If so I will pass on season tickets.  Not drive from Williston to be turned away.

Yes, but I heard they’re giving away free rectal thermometers to the first 1000 fans. 

And half-price beers for fans who are willing to share said thermometers.

You want to make sure to get one still in the original packaging. ;)
