  1. Lacrosse at a "DI" UND?

    SiouxMD: Your first "quote" isn't a quote of any UND official. It's the writings of David Dodds, Herald Staff reporter. How much do we trust any reporter (I'm not singling out Dodds in particular, but he gives a simple case study), to get the story correct? Well, let's look at: Uh, no. You are allowed to have one mens and one womens team "play up" in a sport other than football or basketball. Common examples: UND mens and womens hockey; UMD mens and womens hockey; Johns Hopkins (DIII) mens lacrosse (DI). PS - The quote from Boyd I interpret to mean: We haven't decided if it's worth the money to hire a consultant (consultants everywhere just cringed) when we got copies of NDSU's and SDSU's reports for free off the 'net.

  7. The Name 'em Game: 2018-19 Edition

    It's the end of "next week" Mr. Schlossman.
  8. The Name 'em Game: 2018-19 Edition

    OK, so it's the off-season. Here's a blast from the past to pass the time. The game: Name the new players on, *and* name any early departures from, the official hockey roster for 2018-19. Scoring: For every new player you name correctly you gain a point. For every new player you claim will come in but that isn't on the roster you lose a point. For every new player that comes in that you don't predict you lose a point. For every early departure you predict correctly you get a point. For every early departure you claim but they stay you lose a point. For every early departure you don't predict but that happens you lose a point. Entries: Due before the first early departure happens or official release of the roster this fall (whichever happens first). Final scoring when fall camp roster is released.

    Didn't Schlossman speculate we'd know the ins-and-outs by the end of this week? Tick-tock ...

    Nothing worse than being Charlie Huddy to somebody's Paul Coffee.
  14. The rules (same as 2017): - pick six (6) forwards - pick four (4) defensemen - straight POINTS, not goals, POINTS (G + A) scored by your ten players in the four rounds to the Cup determines winner - no more than five (5) players from a single NHL team on your team Teams must be in before first playoff puck drop Wednesday night. And I'm not going to have much time to track scores this year; I'll need help with it. Thanks to everyone in advance. For those with short memories: last year's game

  17. Prospective Sioux Recruits

    I don't want the best player from any USHL or BCHL or AJHL team. I want the second best player from every USHL and BCHL and AJHL team. <--- a Vegas state of mind.
  18. Destination hockey

    Bridgestone is a nice arena in a good part of town to host hockey fans. I can personally verify those statements. No further comment.
  19. Destination hockey

    Dang. I was hoping they'd put ice back in here for an event game. Stay at the Wagon Wheel.
  20. UND Budget Cuts

    Some of NDSU's existing housing makes Johnstone/Fulton/Smith look like the Ritz. Don't be surprised when some of that, especially the stuff on valuable ground (say near their union and new STEM building), becomes "available" shortly after the new facility comes online.

    But you can for actions while being a hot head.

    So, Oxbow, I'm really "Agent J" of the MIB ... forget me not.
  23. Stanley Cup Game 2018 Edition

    To pass: stoney - I need (Wild Bill + Kuznetzov) to outscore (Ovechkin + Oshie) by 17 Bluth - I need Wild Bill to score 8 points petey - I need Kuznetzov to outscore Ovechkin by 4 home - I need Wild Bill or Kuznetzov to score To be passed by: rube - Ovechkin must outscore Kuznetzov by 8 Goon - Ovechkin must outscore (Wild Bill + Kuznetzov) by 14 Looking at that I'd say I'm pretty safe at #5 and should be top 4. What's interesting is if I get my points to pass petey, and my point to pass Bluth, I'm really not that far from stoney. <-- I'm coming for ya man!
  24. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    1. This thread is to discuss conference realignments. Check the other crap at the web portal. 2. I needed the old thread to keep up with all the changes so it getting locked was a real disappointment to me. 3. I have moderator powers. (Betcha didn't know that.) I haven't ever banned anyone but do wonder how it'd feel, so, in the immortal words of Harry Callahan, "Go ahead, ... make my day." 4. Expect a strict constructionalist interpretation of the forum rules and guidelines.

    Was I happy on August 5, 2005? No. I knew what was coming: 2012. Was I happy that something generic (bird) was the choice? No, but I could see it coming. Did I figure generic begets generic when it comes to a logo? Yes. Was I happy? No. All that said, when I hear "Fighting Hawks" or see the new logo I'm happy. Why? No more nonsensical news stories about how the old name causes this, that, or the other. No more grandstanding "protesters" when we go on the road. No more having to listen to pontifications by Jeanotte-heads. No more NCAA threats. So, amongst all that unhappy, I found my happy in this outcome. So yeah, I see that name and log and I smile because I found happy in unhappy.
