      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 .

March Madness???

Anybody stay up late and watch Oklahoma-Davidson? I'll be rooting for Stephen Curry this year...would love to see him in a Wolves uni.

Davidson has some good games on its nonconference schedule before they romp through the Southern conference.

Davidson had their butts handed to them last night by Duke. Your boy doesn't have the help he had last year and you don't win with just one great player. He has shown this year that his defence is a little suspect and has struggled from the field when they have really needed him to make a big shot.

He can't sneak up on anyone this year, like he did last season. Teams are defending against him much better than last season. He is still a great scorer unfortunately the rest of the team can't score a bucket to save their lives.

Even if he scores 35 a game it isn't enough when nobody else on the team can score in double figures. I think the Wolves would be better off getting T.Hansbough, than just another guard that wants to shoot eveytime he touches the ball.

Unless Davidson plays well in their own conference, we may not see him in the tournament come March. Unless it's in the NIT. JMHO

Impressive show by Duke. Didn't catch the game. Duke has looked much more well rounded this year than last and should be a good pick to go deep. I'm going to have to catch a few more games. Gotta be getting close to Duke-UNC pretty soon.

Davidson will be in the tourney, they're 3-0 in conference play and are in no danger of missing...They won't need an autobid with their RPI/SOS.

Wolfies are playing better of late, but I'd like to see a guy that can score from anywhere come on board. So if it were Hansbrough or Curry, I'd take Curry. Hopefully there will be better options.

Interesting and worthless piece of information that I remembered last night: I have Stephen Curry's father's shoes! It's a 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon type of thing:

I played for and got the shoes from my HS assistant coach, who played with Kevin Lynch at Bloomington Jefferson, who played with Dell Curry at Charlotte, who fathered Stephen Curry. They are Reebok pumps, size 16 in case you are wondering.

How 'bout those Demon Deacons!

As always, it's going to be a tough ACC schedule with Duke, UNC, and WF ranked at #2, #3, and #4 as of today.

Fox Sports North-HD last night.

I just caught the last three minutes and WF did everything they could to let UNC win the game. They're fortunate to get the win for the mistakes they made in those last minutes.

Looks like that #1 ranking will get passed up and down Tobacco road until the tournament starts. Wake has to go to Cameron and there are still two games of Duke-UNC plus the conference tournament.

Great game for the hoops fan. Had everything you'd want in a CBB game. Duke Vitale even called it when he said to watch out for Johnson on the inbounds.

No doubt. WF has beat two #1's now and Clemson which is also a top-10 team. WF is definitely someone to look out for down the stretch.

The game easily could have gone two ways last night. If not for Singler and Henderson WF may have blown Duke right out of the building. In fact, it was looking that way for a while when they stretched it to 11 points or so but Duke came back to tie it up late. On the other hand, if Paulus or Scheyer hit a couple of those three's as they typically do, WF would be the ones playing from behind. Duke shooting 33% last night just wasn't enough and is about the only way another team is going to hang in there with them, and WF barely won even with Duke shooting that poorly.

Should be a fun stretch of games the next month.

How about those Bison!! Right now they're leading the Summit Conference and Joe Lunardi has them as a #14 seed in his Bracketology segment. This team has been four years in the making and purposely arranged to give them a shot at the type of year they are having right now with a strong class of seniors.

LmitOut,

I'm in my last year at NDSU. I've been to a few of their games this year, including when they played the Gophers at Williams. This team is the real deal, and if they get a decent draw in the tournament, could certainly be a cinderella.

Here's why:

-A senior dominated team

-A pointguard who can take over games, and averages 23pt a game

-They're not scared: have beaten Wisconsin (17) and Marquette (8) on the road the past few years

-Haven't had a bad loss this year, lost to USC by 4 on road, Minn when they shot OVER 60% for the game (rediculas)

Lunardi has waffled them between a #13 and #14 lately, I feel if they win out, especially with their bracketbuster game against Wisc-Mil, they'll get a 12 seed, which can be a great spot for a run in the tourney.

Unranked Maryland takes down #3 UNC today in OT!!

The ACC is a mess with every team beating up on the other, yet almost any one of those teams could play in the tourney next month and be competitive. Their overall records will not show what type of teams they really are when it comes to tourney time.

Anybody else watching Mt. St. Marys vs. Robert Morris (I call them Bob Morris because we have a good vibe). What a game so far. Could come down to another nail biter!

Montana St. vs. Portland St. after this game is over. Keep'm coming!

    • Ain't even Labor Day yet. As my bus driver use to say "What's da matter witchya?"
    • LOL  Absolutely right! Delmar, didn't you ever winter camp? In a tent, in the snow? You should try it! Or, put a barrel stove in that palace of yers! Nothing like a cracklin' fire to come back home to...that's what makes it fun!!   Now HERE's an uninsulated cabin! And fulla bats, with no windows! Screens and sheets!  Chimney comes down to nothing, stove was ripped out years ago. Home for me and my buddy for 3 days every year while fishing the tourney up in McGregor. 29* at nite.....
    • Oh boo hoo,   fare weather cabin dweller. The spring and the fall is best time spent around a fire inside or  out.
    • The first snowmobile that my Dad owned when I was a kid was a 340 Arctic Cat Panther that looked just like this one:   After I left home I didn't get back into snowmobiling until 1998 when I bought one just like this little number brand new:  
    • Glad your well guy took care of the problem.  But a drilled well typically has a submersible pump down at the bottom of the well so it needs no priming, regardless of circumstances.
    • Gets a little chilly with a space heater and no insulation...
    • Foreign even! They sure like this site for some reason....
    • Dear Del, Regurgitate it all again, since that is your only option and nevermind the truth behind how the human body works.  Del, you let a handful of bad seeds sour your taste for Chiros but fail to see that you were prescribed high cholesterol meds during a routine blood test that you probably no longer takes due to new findings on cholesterol.... LOL, cant make this stuff up, it really happens, but go ahead and post a link from some Gazette you found on page 5 of your google search.  LOL, cant make that stuff up either, it really happens, and its being threatened to be used! Whoa ho ho bud, scary materiel there.... "You must cite studies but I can copy and paste from SportsAuthority and some "The Patch" article"  Wow, step down from that mountain top you seem to think you belong on daily.  "Cite studies on an opinion you dont hold, but i have insinuated you do time and time again as ammo against you, because chiros are crazy" LOL, man Del, get off the internet bud. I've explained the relationship between the quads and hamstrings, I dont need to cite a study but I am very glad to know that in your eyes,  something only becomes effective once it is commercialized, a study is worked up-people are paid and you are influenced that its good through repetition of those things and tightly toned bodies.     The only thing I disavow that I somewhat defended in the past on here was processed sugar and cane sugar.  Pure evil.  I consume anywhere from 3-6g of processed sugar weekly, dropped from 200 to 188 in about 2.5 months and you couldnt really tell except for my face a little.  You want to see an adult on a sugar high, you dont have to go far to see one....   I'll be waiting for you to share someone else's article and opinion..... Your friend, -Juice
    • Problem solved... There is a pressure valve about 8 feet down.  Turn off the power, open a valve and when the line pressure drops below 15 psi it self drains to 8 foot down.  Extremely happy as this makes turning water on and off for the weekends sooo much easier than going down to the lake and priming the pump with 5 gallons of water poured into a 1 inch pipe..
