      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Gopher Basketball

Looks like the Gophers are back to normal. Got thumped pretty bad against Michigan State. I only saw a little bit of the end of the game so I'm not sure what happened.

That's about how long their ranking lasted the last time also, wasn't it? 

 

While I fully expected them to be a better team this year, I also didn't think of them as anything more than NIT bound. Still nice to see them get a couple conference wins though.

Anything should be better than last year. I haven't seen much of them yet this year except the second half of the Ohio State game but I love to watch Richard Coffey's kid. Hopefully he just keeps getting better. The sad part is it seems the Gophers have a hard time recruiting these good players unless they are the offspring of a former Gopher alumni.

Boy, it sounds like after last night, some of you have given up hope already.

Last night is one of two games this year they have looked pedestrian.  I doubt they will shoot 30% very many games this year.

I think it would have been tough for just about anyone to match Michigan states energy last night.  I can see this team as a 22 win team.  Should be good enough to make the tournament.

Well I agree this may have been true in recent years...it seems this is maybe changing. Next season they have 2 kids from NY coming in, 1 of which (Isiah Washington) is the #1 pg recruit from NYC...the kid can flat out ball and I think his ceiling will only rise since he committed/signed.

 

I think NCAA tourney is realistic this year, and they could even make a small run. I honestly think this team can beat anyone, I also think they can lose any game as the pieces are quite there yet. They did lose Fitzgerald before the season that was expected to add a lot. Looking into next season the only player they lose will be springs he is def a spark off the bench and veteran presence. However with Mason being a senior guard next year I think that team could be real legit!

At least they've already won more Big 10 games than last year, right? I'm always told by Gopher fans that means "they're heading in the right direction".  :D

Maybe Fleck can coach basketball too?

When was the last time the Goofs beat 2 ranked teams in a season?  Pretty good second half last night to stretch their win streak to 5.

They were already in even before last night, I think. Now they are working on getting a decent seed. I think a 6 or better is a lock, as long as they don't throw up on themselves and lose the rest. Could go as high as a 4 if they win out and win a couple in the conference tourney.

Hard to believe they were 8-23 a year ago!

Wow what a run they have been on lately.   Pitino has definitely rewarded the fan base after last season, with the best big ten season in the last 20yrs. With a win against the Badgers they will get a double bye in the big 10 tournament.

Just a month ago saying "a win against the Badgers" would have been laughable, and now it seems likely! Quite a turn-around...getting hot at the right time!

He deserved it, he flipped the record from last year 8-23 to 23-8 this year.  I saw a projection for the NCAA tourny that has the Gophers as high as a 5 seed.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
