  1. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    Not to mention the first team was Minnesota during the Big Ten's inaugural year so most of the players were WCHA alumni/recruits. Still, it's impossible to ignore the fact that the conference has come a long way and did much better than I expected this year.

    So if the rules changed to require a conference to have 8 teams instead of 6, there would only be 5 autobids... I don't see any downside to that rule change...
  3. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    I could be mistaken, but I believe each conference can technically do that if they want. But then they'd forfeit their tournament bid.

    Are you serious? Most of the consideration list was better than the final 10. There was blizzard, aviators, bombadiers, Norse and roughnecks comes to mind. Nokata as well but that was on the non-consideration list.

    I thought my displeasure at the lack of "No nickname" was apparent when I said Kelley butchered step 7. That and the exclusion of any name that was actually interesting, unique or traditional.
  6. University of north dakota fighting nodaks

    Yeah, can't argue with any of that. Although I think it's fair to say Kelley butchered step 7 and Schafer chocked on 8. Some people will always say that Kupucella, Kelley and Faison could have fought harder and that may be true but nonetheless we are stuck with a PC name probably forever. However, I look forward to the day that a wise future UND president let's a student redesign the logo.
  7. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Funny picture but I think you're missing the point about mascots. They're fun. They boost fan participation and cheers. The Sioux logo was great but we couldn't have a mascot to go along with it and that was fine. But since we had to switch we might as well get a matching mascot and have fun with it.
  8. College Hockey Expansion

    Yes...because brand new teams always become instant successes. Like ASU.
  9. NORTH DAKOTA @ Miami - FRIDAY Gameday

    But at least we have an Olympian...Why does that sound ominously familiar...
  10. NORTH DAKOTA @ Miami - FRIDAY Gameday

    We will need to do well in the tournament. It's hard to be hopeful about our odds there considering this year's performance.
  11. NORTH DAKOTA @ Miami - FRIDAY Gameday

    Too many dumb penalties. Yet again.
  12. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Western teams are dominating this year.
  13. Olympic Hockey

    Would certainly make the last few weeks of NCAA play even more interesting
  14. President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    If he takes the job he'd have the shortest tenure since Blackburn (litteraly our first president). Frankly I expected him to be here awhile considering he and his wife are relatively local. Still, I wouldn't blame him if he can actually double his salary. That being said, it's hard to me to form an opinion on his short tenure. He mishandled cutting sports (we won't cut any sports in my tenure...a few months later...jk) but he inheireted that problem from Kelley/Schafer and the ND budget shortfall.
