  1. UND to cut women's hockey

    Culver prep school I guess. For some reason he couldn't get a college job after blindly spending his program into the ground while the rest of the school experienced budget cuts.
  2. 2018 Season

    Nothing like a bit of optimism to start the season...
  3. UND to cut women's hockey

    Probably one of the most reasonable posts I've seen about women's hockey in 2 years. It never should have cost $2 million a year nor should it require a $60 million endowment. Either way, UND is a school first. Protecting academics from massive athletic loses makes sense.
  4. UND to cut women's hockey

    Regardless as to the result of the case. I don't buy that there wasn't a way to save WIH without a massive endowment. You could have cut other sports (track, softball, tennis etc) and just WIH dramatically reduce their budgets. Idalski's contract was up, step one would be to hire a cheaper coach who focused on local recruits. Am I way off here or are there other factors I'm missing?
  5. Lacrosse at a "DI" UND?

    Do you really think the administration would want to deal with the PR nightmare associated with canning Baseball, Swimming and Diving, and Women's Hockey only to start a lacrosse team?
  6. College Hockey Expansion

    For the sake of their fledgling program I sure hope they pick a better coach than Idalski

    This was my favorite fan made Fighting Hawk logo
  8. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Oh yes.. That tiny, indistinguishable logo at the center certainly destroys my point about the team using main logo when the large ND is plastered everywhere else including the center field. I should have said 2010 beforehand for the men's team. The women's team switch to the jersey you posted in 2008. The football team didn't wear a large/traditional logo on their jersey in a very long time.

    I'll concede that the logo was on the banners at the Alerus and even the Hyslop Pool if I recall correctly. But the logo did not appear on the jersey of any non-hockey team while I was a student (07-12). From what I've been told this was true prior to me attending as well and a Google search shows that the 2001 championship uniforms didn't display the Sioux logo or name. Speaking of Google, it does appear the word Sioux appeared on the basketball jerseys through 2011. Logos don't often make it onto basketball jerseys so I'll concede that point in terms of their jerseys.
  10. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    I don't get the hypocrisy on so many of these posts. For over a decade every sport team except hockey excluded our logo and no one said boo. Now all of sudden, people who claim to be for "unifying the school" are throwing a fit because the Betty court will have the logo on the ends of the court instead of the center. The logo is still there! If you're going to be mad about something, be mad about something logical. Like the fact they named it the Betty SIOUX Center... As for the welfare of student athletes, please show me any kind of hard data that their performance is being negatively effected because the logo is under the hoop instead of center court. I hope their mental resiliency is stronger than that. Finally the most ridiculous claim is made by Kennedy himself. Is there really anyone one this forum who believes am NDSU student will somehow be tricked into thinking they are in Fargo because "North Dakota" is written on the center court despite walking over the Hawk logo at the ends of the courts? Does anyone really think that the athletes from either UND or NDSU are really so weak minded or are they literally blind? If so, then both schools need to recruit smarter athletes.

    I mean, a contract is a contract. If the REA doesn't want to change the terms there really isn't much the school can do about it. As for the WH and REA relationship, that certainly seems like something that should have been discussed before the school cut the program. Kennedy is a fool if he didn't.

    Maybe things have changed since I graduated in 2012, but it seems to me that moving basketball and volleyball off campus would kill student attendance.
  13. New Mascot

    Considering the mascot looks more like a Falcon anyways, how about Terminator or Marv after Grand Forks resident falcons
  14. 2018 NCAA Tournament - Worst to First

    My whole family is from Minnesota and it really depends on where you live. The northern part of the state prefers Duluth or UND (and a few BSU). The western part goes to SCSU, Minnesota State or UND. The eastern part is UMD or even (shudders) UW. Really UMN is most popular in the suburbs. It's almost like geography matters.
  15. 2018 NCAA Tournament - Worst to First

    Ah. Ok. Well that's probably true then. I've met a number of Michigan fans who barely know or care they a team and Gopher fans who think they have been missing the playoffs because "the committee" is biased against them.
