      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 .

Really? I mean it's obvious where your heart is, and thats fine... but if you had to lay down some of that hard earned cash of yours, what would you say then? I believe MN is better than SCSU by a fair amount, however I also believe in the "overly loud annoying 80's hairband music blarring over the speakers and they think it's cool factor" blush.gif going on up there.... therefore my prediction 3-3 tie and Gophers 4-2 for three points and a successful road trip.

I hear you Buzzsaw, but being an alum of both SCSU and the U of MN, I have to tell you that I would take the atmosphere of a game in St. Cloud over Mariucci. Okay, I know I am opening up a can of worms here, but it just kills me when I go to Mariucci and see so few students and many corporate seats left open. It is definitely a great rink/arena, but it just lacks that college feel sometimes.

Anyways, I better get out my Guns n' Roses CD to brush up on the lyrics for Saturday night. grin.gif

I can't disagree, mariucci arena is an older crowd, but not old people... just not a bunch of drunk college kids acting like caged animals... I digress. I personally would way rather go to a game at mariucci then the way overrated arena in St. Cloud.... just get seats at either end and you can also participate the chants without being an indignant drunken college kid.

My feelings exactly! I would put Mariucci right behind NoDak for best arena in the area. (Sidebar, if you haven't been to NoDak, make the trip --it's worth the drive) I also get a kick out of the Goph's coordinated chants.

But the Marriucci experience is just different from the smaller rinks. Those ethanol induced chants are a big part of the college game. Like last weekend, "Fra-zee's Was-ted"

And back to original topic. Though close, I see the Goph's sweep. Maybe a little bad blood from the final five semi last year?

I have not been to the SCSU arena, I can say that going to Mariucci for many gopher fans is like going to Lambeau to watch a game for packer fans. I can say I have been to UND several times (not the new arena) and that is a great atmosphere as well. I remember watching someone from the maroon and gold skate around a dead gopher and scoring a goal up there it was great.

I think the Gophers will get out the brooms this weekend.

I think we’re losing sight of the most important thing here. Since I’m married to Jill… and she is going to the game in St. Cloud Saturday night… I have to miss my Saturday night pick-up game because I have to stay home to take care of Mr. Hockey 2023! Anyone up for babysitting in the Lakeville area Saturday night? I have a 56” HD TV with the Center Ice package and CSTV for you to watch while the boy sleeps. It’s a pretty sweet set-up! Anyone? Anyone?

Definitely one of the worst games the Gophs have skated all year. I thought they were pretty flat last weekend, but tonight was worse. St. Cloud definitely should have put it away.

Two things about tonight's game: gopher's were not moving to the puck. A lot of reaching for around and hooking. They got beat several times tonight standing around. They had trouble breaking out of their zone when they were standing around.

The other thing was mental mistakes. Just about every defensemen tonight was making errors including vanelli. Okposo's gaff at the blue line coughed up a goal, as did Vanelli's penalty behind the net, resulting in a power play goal. Briggs must have had a brain fart tonight, as he let in some soft goals. He was not playing angles well, and what was with that last goal? tuck that elbow in man!

Gophers need to pick up the pace tomorrow night. When they skate and move the puck around, they are unstoppable. The CC series was a fine example of how well the Gophers play when they skate and move.

tomorrow's gonna be rough at the NSC; gophers better bring their A-game and skate like they've got something to prove.

unfortunately it was me, and I was right frown.gif

At least the gophs pulled their tails out of their rears and saved face this game. If they wouldn't have stepped up in the third and OT it would have been ugly. The Huskies looked really good tonight though. After that skuller shot, Frazee got beat stone cold on that third goal. Must have stung...

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
