  1. The former administration also agreed to it, must not be nearly as bad in the big picture as some people think.
  2. It expired a year ago. UND signed basically the exact same agreement this last week and said they felt "very good" about the agreement.

    Some times the blue chips pick college hockey, some times they pick Major Juniors. It differs every year. But more and more are picking the college route which is great to see and only hope continues. Seven first rounders this year are playing or will be playing college hockey next year. That's great to see!

    Oliver Wahlstrom is an incoming college blue chip for Boston College. Most like to draw the line at "First Rounders" to be nice and include a few more players.

    That means the "real blue chips" were 1-12 "or so" this year.

    Facilities Master Plan

    Sounds like the Richards family doesn't trust the University and what they say they'll do with the money after selling the land:

    Facilities Master Plan

    On a related note, The Richards family is not happy the way the U is trying to sell their donated land, including writing to the higher ed board to try and block it.

    Facilities Master Plan

    With exceptions, that's probably why the university now mandates all freshman must live on campus.

    "Back in my day" UND had so many students some had to start the semester staying in hotels around town until UND had rooms become available. Now I drive by Dakota Hall and it's a decimated, old, overgrown, unoccuplied, piece of property. A reminder of the Universities glory days.
  13. The Engelstad Family Foundation just gave $250,000 to ND Farm Rescue.

    2018-19 Non-UND College Hockey

    NCAA Hockey Committee: We don't want to help prepare you for the NHL.
  15. When UND athletics is a little cash strapped they have the option to use "institutional funds." If you're a fan of athletics and dislike music therapy this is a good thing. It also helped trim the athletic department fat (cough womens hockey cough).
  16. To buy on ice projectors or video replay boards for the Betty?
  17. Yes, Ralph Engelstad Arena Inc is making money off the arena. REA Inc (and or other arena management groups) is a non-profit that takes money from UND ticket sales, operates the arena and gives back money to UND they don't "use." The money stays between the arena or UND. Each entity wants more.
  18. For the 1000th time, Engelstad Foundation isn't profiting off of the Ralph Engelstad Arena.

    Grand Forks Economy

    If Fargo raises their minimum wage, will Grand Forks have no option but to follow? GF could soon have a $12 minimum wage.

    Little Known Tidbit, The hat and tshirt Oshie is wearing is from "Warroad Brand," an apparel company he (co)founded.

    I think my next UND jersey might have to be an Oshie Jersey. Guy is cementing his Legendary status!

    UND to cut women's hockey

    Wonder if Dan Siegel was the instigator.
