      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 .

Duke vs. North Carolina

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Best rivalry in the nation will be played out this week during rivalry week on ESPN.

This matchup is that much better when both teams are ranked in the top 10. It's at North Carolina, and both teams have one loss each, are ranked 2 and 3....always great games, great players, great tradition.

I'll be recording the game as I have my own league that night. UNC leads the all time series 127-96. Gotta support UNC...a state school versus the rich boy Dukies. Truthfully I've had enough of both schools, but I'd rather see UNC win I guess.

There have been some pretty good games over the years. Check them out at Wikipedia some time.

Duke has always been there. Carolina had some down years when I think Daugherty was coach. I think that was his name, the guy that coached Notre Dame. Games are always fun to watch. Up tempo and the crowds are unbelievable.

No surprise here: "Duke" Vitale will come back from his throat ulcer surgery 3 months ago in time to call the Duke-UNC game. I love Dickie V, got a photo with him when I met him in Florida, but man does that guy fawn over Duke like Madden loves Brett Favre.

Go DUKE!

Up by 3 at the break. They led by double digits but it slipped away in the latter part of the first half. Time to crank it back up again and put this state school back in it's place.

The old saying "throw the records out when these two play" certainly applies with these teams. It doesn't matter if either of them is having a bad year, it always is a knock down, drag out fight to the final buzzer. Gotta love it.

Well the middle of the 2nd half has been very sloppy. If Duke loses it'll be due to missed FT's, and if UNC loses it'll probably be from turnovers. Duke has been on fire from the 3pt line and has helped overcome their inability to hit a simple FT.

Duke pulled it out. If UNC hadn't lost to Maryland it would have been another 1-2 matchup. Should be an interesting game at Coach K court in early March with Lawson back.

I have been a huge UNC fan for many years. They did get outplayed tonight, no doubt about it. They did somethings that hurt them in the game. There going to be there for the tournament and give it a run. By end of the tournament, we will see which team is better!!!

Go Heels

Well, Hansbrough came to play (28-18). He disappeared at times last year. Might play himself back into the lottery if he keeps it up.

It appeared that Duke's strategy was to let the mouth-breather score and not pick up a bunch of fouls trying to stop him, while guarding the other four and making them beat Duke. It seemed to work. whistle.gif

no Lawson, could have played a big role. i'm a neutral fan and avid college basketball fan, and can say him not playing would have made a difference. u should be able to atleast admit that right lmitout.

Hard to say. Their other "big guns" didn't play very well either against Duke's defense, so I guess we'll have to wait for the next game to see.

Duke didn't have their big guy to battle against the mouth breather, and he'll be back for the next matchup to soak up some fouls too.

UNC returned the favor tonight. If they win the ACC tournament they will be the #1 overall seed. I'm sure by next weekend we'll be preparing for another Duke UNC tilt. Three per year is pretty common. 16/15 for Hansbrough.

As soon as I heard Valentine and Hess were reffing the game I knew it was over before it started. Hate to do the ref blaming game, but I challenge anyone to find a game that they worked that Duke has won. Coincidence? Hardly.

Last night I was chatting with a buddy and I called it. I said as long as those two weren't reffing Duke had a chance. Go figure, guess what zebras showed up. I've watched enough Duke to know.

It was a good game and Duke rallied to take the lead late but couldn't overcome the lack of officiating to finish it out. I wasn't surprised to say the least.

Longtime Dukie, I would take the other side. I thought the NC center could have shot 10 free throws. He got none. Duke has no chance of getting to the elite 8/final 4. 1 cold shooting nite and no inside presence.

Yeah, but in football you can run with the ball without dribbling and it's not a violation. Hmm, I guess you're right...it was more like a football game than a basketball game. \:\/

It was a good game. Hansbrough is very tough. The only way Duke will win it all is if they shoot lights out. We should be in for a great March.

      I have a number of family and friends fishing the river Thursday thru Sunday this week.  No reports yet.  I will pass them along as soon as i hear.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
    • PSU
      Lot's of walleyes to be had, but most for me seem to be smaller (8-10 inches)
