      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 .

Kelvin Sampson/Indiana

Recommended Posts

KFAN was reporting that sources were saying Kelvin Sampson was fired.

I don't see how a guy gets hired and there are investigations into phone calls and then a year and a half later he's still doing it! He knows the rules. I think Indiana will can him in the next two weeks...they don't want to chance messing with their mojo and tournament chances. They want to win bad at Indiana, but not bad enough to cheat.

Sampson's a real piece of work the way it sounds. Good coach but apparently real arrogant or real stupid, not sure which. The consensus at our coffee table caucus earlier in the week was that he's toast. You're a basketball guru; what do you think the chances are that The General, after spending time in exile at Texas Tech, could return now that the guy who fired him is no longer there?

Bobby could easily return...he could be governor in Indiana.

Sampson is toast...he may have to resign just so this is taken care of sooner. He will be suspended and he definately coached his last game.

Indiana doesn't want to step on the NCAA's toes but want to rid the University of him...

Guru? sick.gif Far from it.

You're lobbing a softball here. Myles Brand ran him out and as Executive Director of the NCAA will advise against Knight going to any big program. There's a reason Knight was relegated to basketball purgatory in Lubbock and there won't be many takers for a guy his age and with his reputation. I think Knight may get another chance to coach again but at a small school. Guys that make mistakes but have huge amounts of history (Huggins, Sutton, and Knight for example) generally have to get back on their feet at small schools so it definately will take some time. If I'm Bob Knight it's not worth my time. I'd rather stay retired and only make the news when I hit someone with a load of 6 shot.

Knight stepped down what a day or two before the Sampson allegations came out. Coincidence?

It would be great for Indiana and great for college basketball if the General was brought back to where he belongs, coaching "Big Red". Personally I would love to see it and it would be a heck of a story.

There is something seriously wrong in this world when you can't just flat out fire a crooked bum like this. Why in the world does he get $750,000 to go away???????!!!!!!!

As an aside, I mentioned to my partner in the office on Monday that I thought Bobby Knight got wind of this from an old buddy/booster and made himself available. He didn't think so, but I still do...

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
