    What are you talking about? You want Harris to fire Farley, but not honor the payout clauses of the contract? A great legal mind you're not.

      It's been too long since we've painted a new championship year up on the wall. Eight years since our last outright championship and seven since we shared with NDSU who got the auto bid. Unacceptable.

        All this talk of poor results in several of our sports, reseating issues, lack of ticket sales, etc. is concerning to me, too, but please I wish everyone would think about withholding money for tickets and PSC, not supporting the Panthers, etc. because you are only punishing the student athletes who I believe are trying their best to represent UNI. They are young men and women who have come to UNI to be athletes but to also get an education and become productive and successful citizens for life. I will continue to support UNI despite losses, because I think it's the only fair thing to do for the athletes.

          National championships have always been outside UNI's reach, and frankly, with the juggernaut that NDSU has become, conference championships might be as well.
          But losing (and not even just losing, but getting our butts handed to us) by teams like this years WIU and YSU teams just is not acceptable. And there have been similar questionable losses in the past few years as well.

            I don't think anyone expects us to win a National Championship, since we never have, let's at least feel like we're in the mix and could is extremely reasonable in my opinion.

              Disagree. We had the best team in 2005, 2007 and 2008. Should have been National Champs all three. BTW WTH happened in 2006?

                And 87 and 92 and MAYBE 03.

                87--Lost to Stan Humphries in a multiple overtime game in Louisiana in a game that should have been here.
                92--Kenny Shedd ran into a brick wall, literally.
                03--Got sent to Delaware to play in a blizzard due to Patty V's incompetence

                Eric Sanders played on a nasty ankle all year in 06.

                  '92 and '03 still give me nightmares.

                      What could have been, if the end zone wall would have been padded when Mr. Shedd ran into it.

                        Lots of stuff needed padding back then. Back when the bball court was in the middle of the Dome floor, my best friend ran through one of those big purple curtains that they would put up in between the removable bleachers... and ran smack dab right into a giant cement block. He was lucky to not completely break his face. Of course we were young kids at the time and most people would know not to go barreling through a dark curtain without knowing what's on the other side... but yeah. Lots and lots of nostalgia from literally growing up in that building back when it was much different than it is now.

                        Sorry - took us completely off topic.

                          I'm not sure that would have helped much. He hit that wall HARD. Still would have screwed him up pretty badly.

                          I'll blow your mind here--If Kurt Warner is the Quarterback on that team, Shedd doesn't get hurt. He made a great play on an AWFUL throw which caused him to lose his balance and go into that wall. Warner throws him a better ball and....

                            They added padding on the end walls after the Shedd incident. And I just recently noticed that they've also padded a whole lot more along the sidelines. (that may have been in place for a while now, but I just got around to noticing it during the high school football semifinals this year)

                              UNI wasn't the best team in 2005. They were a good team that benefitted from a whole bunch of lucky breaks.
                              And if UNI was really the best team all those other years, they would have won at least one championship.

                              I definitely miss having QBs like Eric Sanders and especially those offensive lines from that era, though.

                                And 1996 was a pretty good year too. Made it to the semi-finals behind the field stretching go routes of Dedric Ward only to come up short to the eventual champion Marshall team featuring Randy Moss.
