  1. College Hockey Expansion

    I know why this won't happen, but it would really be better for AF to join the WCHA and then just play a non conference series against Army.
  2. PyeongChang 2018

    Let's be honest, even with the college players (plus a few recently retired players or players whose owners let them go) the US and Canada teams will still have some pretty competitive teams.
  3. What do you think of the logo now??

    Sadly I haven't been able to attend a game in person since the new name was adopted (Texas is pretty far away), so I can't comment much on how persistent the booing is (although I could occasionally hear it on the TV), or which teams have fostered the best environment, but in terms of support, I'm pretty sure the athletes are smart enough to realize that fans are booing the name, not them or their performance.
  4. What do you think of the logo now??

    So where was this outrage when we were still the Fighting Sioux and only the hockey teams wore the logo?
  5. What do you think of the logo now??

    Well as a current MS student and BS grad I would have thought the $80K (rough estimate) I've invested on my two degrees might have warranted a vote. I'm not sure what went wrong with the committee. They repeatedly ignored what polls indicated that most people wanted. Rumor has it Kelley appointed a lot of PC minded members but I'm not sure how true that is.
  6. What do you think of the logo now??

    For the record, one can accept the change and move on while still recognizing that the NCAA/UND administration have mishandled pretty much every step of the process. We can still support the school but that doesn't mean we have to agree with their logo or funding decisions. Most people I know, fall into this category.
  7. What do you think of the logo now??

    I think the school should have road out the "No Name" policy for longer. Both sides were moderately happy with it for the time being. But no...the administration(s) had to put fuel on the fire. First with the nickname committee, then with the terrible logo. But fires aside, the fans did submit some truly unique names. How did names like Green Hawks or Sundogs* ever get past the initial cut? *As a meteorologist I liked this name, as a fan I think it was terrible. No one besides Hawaii wants to be named after a rainbow.
  8. UND to cut women's hockey

    I agree ...you think they'd be able to realize that in times of tight budgets, some things need to go such as the $25K banquet and weekly awards
  9. UND Budget Cuts

    This was one criticism I had with cutting Swimming and Diving to begin with. The school will likely still keep the pool because most 4 year colleges have pools plus the community seems to be pushing them that way too (not sure if they'll help with the budget though). All I can say for sure is that being from Minnesota, not having somewhere to swim would have given me pause on choosing UND.
  10. What do you think of the logo now??

    Ah. You're right. I was thinking of Indoor/Outdoor track and field getting counted twice. Regardless you're missing the point. Cutting sports, majors and professors is far worse for our image than underfunding the marketing department. Demolishing some of those buildings is overdue. Some may have been avoidable with proper maintenence from past administrations but that is a moot point and I don't blame Kennedy for those choices. But the buildings that remain, even the newer ones, are still falling apart with numerous leaks, outdated AC (if any) and heating systems, etc. I'm not saying they shouldn't increase the marketing budget, but $3M is a huge jump considering the current budget.
  11. What do you think of the logo now??

    Baseball, golf and women's hockey make 3. Swimming and Diving officially counts as 4 sports...so 7.
  12. What do you think of the logo now??

    No you really don't get it. The name was retired. Fine. We will move on because we have to. But cutting 7 sports (assuming men's golf goes), academic majors and buildings does more to harm our image as a school than marketing the new brand that, to date, hasn't even sold well at its current funding.
  13. What do you think of the logo now??

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/article159321249.html Saw this today. $3M for a re-branding campaign. We can't afford to maintain the buildings on campus or fund all of our sports, but we can sure afford to jam a new logo and slogan down your throat!
  14. Indian nicknames in the news

    Same people the Indian names have offended...rich white lawyers who aren't affiliated with the names in any way.
  15. Indian nicknames in the news

    And yet, somehow Fighting Irish, Padres and Demon Deacons are ok.
