Interesting.......

I paid a visit to the uno (dII) board to see if any SDSU people have been over there taking shots at their faithful these past weeks when their program was coming apart from the top down.

Not one person has bothered.

Conclusion.....

uno (dII) and their fans are irrelevant.

SDSU, on the other hand, win or lose, is the measuring stick other area teams use to determine whether they should feel good about their program, or not. That's the way it is in DI. All the lesser divisions prepare for months just to give themselves a chance to knock you off (those that are brave enough to try).

Those that are afraid to try appear in swarms when one of their own does well. They see an opening to chatter their little man talk. It is just that talk. Few of them have the nerve to actually step onto the playing field with us, because they know what happened Saturday just doesn't happen very often at CAS.

So chatter on little men, we have Big D-I fish in our pond to worry about in the weeks to come.

uno (dII) and their fans, on the other hand remain "irrelevant". ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

UNO Chancellor Nancy Belck resigns

BY HENRY J. CORDES AND MATTHEW HANSEN



WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITERS

Former UNO aide had charged for wife's trips to Alaska, Hawaii


NU chief says UNO lacked 'good judgment' on spending

Expense record altered by Belck


Expense alteration spurs talk of whether Belck should resign

Nancy Belck - the chancellor who saw UNO through a decade of unprecedented transformation and growth - resigned her post today in the face of controversy over her alteration of an expense record.


Nancy Belck

Her resignation followed a cascading series of events that began with the June layoffs of five employees from the university's athletic department.

It was soon revealed by UNO officials that the deficits in athletics had been going on for five years, prompting Belck to divert $2 million in university funds to athletics to keep the department afloat.

Then came revelations that her top aide, Vice Chancellor Jim Buck, had been receiving perks funded out of the athletic budget, including a Cadillac and country club membership, even as the department was seriously in debt.

After prevailing in a public records dispute, The World-Herald last week published the full extent of Buck's spending of university funds. He spent thousands of dollars on trips to the NCAA Final Four, travel by his wife, expensive dinners and golf outings, even billing athletics for his own charitable donations to the department.

The records also included an expensive dinner Belck, Buck and their spouses hosted at the 2004 NCAA convention at one of Nashville's finest restaurants. The tab was $1,263 for eight people.

It was that record that Belck altered to suggest there were also "select NCAA Division II staff'' present at the dinner. When asked about the discrepancy, she said she made the change for accuracy, reflecting her assertion there were others at the dinner that inflated the tab.

However, four athletics officials present at the dinner said the original Buck record reflecting eight diners was correct.

Belck submitted her resignation to NU President James B. Milliken, effective immediately.

The chancellor, who came to the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 1997, said recent news reports about her travel expenditures and those of former top aide Buck had diminished her ability to lead the campus.

"As a metropolitan university, UNO must continue to move forward," Belck said.

"Unfortunately, because of the environment created by events of the past several weeks, I can no longer provide effective leadership. In the best interest of UNO, I believe removing myself from this controversy is the most appropriate course of action," she said.

Milliken named John Christensen, UNO vice chancellor of academic and student affairs, as interim chancellor.

"The immediate task at hand is to recapture UNO's momentum and turn our attention to important priorities and opportunities for the campus," the NU president said.

"John Christensen is a seasoned administrator and a man of great integrity, and I am confident that he will provide the leadership needed now to move UNO forward," Milliken said.

Milliken said Belck had "provided thoughtful and energetic leadership for the University of Nebraska at Omaha for the past nine years.

"She has guided the campus during a period of significant growth and accomplishment, mobilizing university and community leaders in a common effort to develop and implement a strategic vision for UNO," he said.

The NU president cited several examples, including the Peter Kiewit Institute's growing reputation as an innovative and competitive programs in the nation in information science and technology, as well as UNO's new role in central Omaha revitalization.

Jim McClurg, chairman of the NU Board of Regents, said, Belck's decision to step down "demonstrates that her concern for the community, the state and the university supersedes her own interests. Her accomplishments as chancellor will have a lasting impact on the campus and have greatly benefited the faculty and students of UNO."

So now with Dr Miller's retirement there will be 2 college president openings - one in SD and one in beautiful Omaha, Ne. You can either choose to live in a thriving metropolitan area and get paid a just wage (Belck was making 217k) or else you can live rurally with limited cultural opportunities, nasty winters, and be the lowest paid land grand pres in this great country of ours. No. 50 out of 50!! I know what most people would choose.

Actually it should read like this....

You can choose to live in Brookings, South Dakota, where there is a fantastic quality of life, outstanding education, low crime rate, low taxes, a dynamic buisness culture with such known businesses as 3M, Daktronics, and Larson Manufacturing. Plus you'll work at a progressive, dynamic university with an outstanding reputation for research, alumni support, as well as a strong academic focus.

Or you can live in Omaha... take in the wonderful, heady aroma of the stockyards, wear fashionable bulletproof vests to and from work, and work with remnants of a corrupt and criminal administration that used the athletic department budget as its own personal piggy bank.

And remeber, the only good thing to come out of Omaha is I-80! I-29 doesn't even want to associate itself with Omaha!

The job in Omaha is a good opportunity for someone to come in here and turns things around. All you have to do, is look better than Belck(which a monkey could do) and you come out smelling like a rose. If you come in and make great things happen.. you are a hero. SDSU's new president has a tougher job of keeping up the good job that Miller did and they also have to watch a lot of sporting events where the Rabbits get their arse kicked. Seems like a no brainer to me.

I believe that looks like a compliment of sorts for an SDSU person. I think someone is getting a little soft spot for SDSU, just a little one.

When someone sees a written confirmation that your president will be paid 300k please post it. I am highly skeptical. I am originally from Missouri - "Show Me" the evidence.
SDSU has outstanding alumni support? Can't they then pony up some money to get some new fb stands and can't they get more than a lousy 6k for a d1aa fb team? High quality of life in Brookings? - I guess if you love fast food, bad winters, 6 dollar an hour jobs, a d1 team that can't beat non scholarship schools then it is a truly great place to live. I mean Brookings is an alright place - but I don't think many reasonable people would consider it high quality living. It is OK living.

Looking for a place to grab a casual dinner and some drinks and then a night spot with live music or another form of entertainment. We are staying near the Crossroads mall and UNO campus.

Need to catch the SDSU game so headphones would have to be acceptable ;D.

Are the Mavs in town? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Jack MD,


There is a new smoke free sports bar on 74th and Dodge called Indigo Joe's. Not my favorite sports bar in town but it is nice. If you are looking for some fine dining go up to the Westroads Mall which is west of there on 102nd and Dodge. You have Macaroni Grill and P.F. Chang's. The best restraunt that I have ever ate at in Omaha is just south of the Mall in Regency. It is called Flemings. It is more upscale and will drop you a Benjamin for two people, but it is worth it. Another option is Village Pointe on 168th and Dodge about ten miles west of where you are at. There is great shopping and so many great restraunts it is crazy. Make sure you take the new expressway to the right just past the interstate to get there faster. Not sure what kind of music you listen to but there is good night life to be had in Omaha. Let me know what you like. You can also never go wrong in the Old Market downtown. Great food and atmosphere. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know how your trip went.

Very helpful, thanks for the info.

I will definitely stop at Indigo Joe's. Any smoke-free business will get my patronage in preference to others. Village Pointe sounds good. My wife likes PF Changs. If my brother and his wife want an upscale place Flemings sounds like it will do the trick.

What do you know about the Drover (sp?)?

As for music, anything will do.

Can't go wrong with the Drover. Great steaks and romantic atmosphere. Still prefer Flemings steaks. Melting Pot out at Village Point is fun dining experience. Great sports bar at Village point called the Scarlet and Cream Letter Club opened by ex-huskers including Scott Frost. Let the women shop while you watch football.

I've checked them out a couple of times. Tix are very expensive there (around $200/ticket). I'm not spending that much on tix. Heck, I only got $110/ticket for Red Sox vs. Yankees (in NY) last Saturday night. I have a friend who lives in Omaha who's also looking for tickets. He said the same thing, if the Huskers don't make it, tickets will be all over the place.

This weekend Nebraska plays Creighton at the Qwest center and they are trying to break the single game attendence record for a Ncaa volleyball game of 12,500. They already have 10,000 sold. Might want to try e-bay closer to game. They just added 1,500 seats to the Qwest this summer and it might be worth checking if they have sold those tickets yet.

last time I was in Omaha for pleasure, we ate at a place tucked into the old market. It was in a little alley off the market. The alley was a narrow brick lined walkway with shops on all sides. Very good eats and a good wine selection. Can't remember the name though as it's been a couple years since we went there. Any idea what I'm talking about, either Mav? You had to take a couple steps down from the main walkway to get into the place. Not sure if this helps.

sdsu beating creighton is a signficant outcome - can't say the same for tennis. I lost interest in tennis about the same time that connors and mcenroe retired. I don't even know if it was published in the Omaha World Herald or else it was buried so deep nobody noticed.But then when wins are in short supply in SD you have to celebrate whenever you can.
The bad news is that it looks like a bleak winter in men's bb - the good news is the mid continent is coming to town and there are a lot of crappy teams in that conference you CAN beat.

We actually have a lot of promising young talent that will be taking the court this fall; you might be surprised, Mavpower. As for wins being in short supply, you haven't been paying attention; our women's basketball program has had twenty straight winning seasons!

As for being in the Mid-Con, it will be awesome when we win the conference tournament and make the Big Dance. Meanwhile, UNO (if they still have an athletic program) will be lucky to break .500 in whatever conference they slide into after the NCC goes under.
