      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 .

Just turned it on after the Wolves game! Caught the last Clemson TD, I always root for the underdog when my teams are out...which is... quite a bit. lol

Fantastic game!

Watson had some poise, nice win for Clemson.  Got to admit i didnt see this outcome coming.

Sorry Big Dave, nice season, i think Alabama's defense got worn down and couldn't make up losing Scarborough and less than stellar QB play.

I am sure we will see Alabama again next year.

It was a good season. I knew they would have trouble with clemson, good QBs always give that Bama defense fits. They are built to stop the run and pressure QBs into mistakes. Watson is too good of a QB and didn't make that big mistake last night. 

 

Alabama's offense has not been good all season. I'm surprised they scored as many points as they did without the defense scoring. I said before the game that Bama needed to score once on defense to win and that would have been the margin. I think not having Kiffin calling the plays may have hurt the offense in the 4th qtr. Kiffin had a way of spreading out defenses throughout the game so those running backs could take control in the 4th qtr and keep opposing offenses off the field.

 

To be honest, at the beginning of the year I thought this was going to be somewhat of a rebuilding year. True freshman quarterback and their best offensive player was a sophomore running back who was injured most of the year.

Last night was the first time since I got rid of cable 9+ years ago that I wished I had it back so I could watch the game.  Had sick kids at home so couldn't get out to catch the game somewhere else.  When it comes to college football I don't really have a rooting interest in any particular team. I just want to see entertaining football and some drama and last nights game had plenty of that.  Its what a title game should look like.

Agree totally with you guys: terrific game!  Too bad we don't see more contests where the matches are a bit more even. But last night was a dandy!!

Sure seemed like Alabama defense delivered quite a few hits with intent to injure. Stay classy. 

 

Ever watch football before?

Back to being a fraud agan I see.

That has absolutely nothing to do with last night's game. Why do they allow you to stay on this sight?

Did you read the link below where Clemson's star linebacker admitted that they do things like that in "every game"?

 

That's how it had something to do with last night's game.

And that happened in last night's game how many times? Alabama leading with the helmet any chance they had was shown many times.

How would I know, I wasn't in the game.

You're butt-hurt about that one play that the ref's didn't call and even the announcers said was a legal hit? I would be more worried about players admitting to the grabbing of scrotum.

 

Why be mad? The team you wanted to win won. Congratulations.

 

Guess which team has a better chance of being there again next year? Without Watson, Clemson will go back to mediocrity no matter what Swinney thinks. Alabama will lose some key defensive players but Saban never seems to have a problem reloading those and Alabama's offense has nowhere to go but up with Bo and Hurts returning next year.

How many penalties were there?

 

Maybe you are a Gopher fan and you're just not used to watching aggressive defenses play?

It will be interesting to see how Alabama does next year. In theory, their QB will be 1 year better, as will their RB. But I think Sarkesian is going to be disappointing as an OC. I think the rest of the SEC will be down next year though. 

 

No doubt this was Clemson's only shot! Swinney has good recruits, but I'm seeing an 8 or 9 win season next year. Great game!

    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...
