      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!

    • My new project involves putting my big boy pants on and upgrading from the 4'x7' panel on the fish house to a 8'x24' for the house. Believe it or not but I had to unhook it from the house for fear of starting a fire due to making too much heat. I haven't quite figured out how to control it yet. 
    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It also works great when you aren't out there  it sure is great to come out to the house after work and the house is already at 60F or warmer   It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal. 
    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....
