  1. New AD wish list

    Probably wouldn't want to leave the Flyers to be an AD.
  2. October 2017 Announcement

    Yeah, my post was merged over from another thread. Admittedly it doesn't make sense here.
  3. College Hockey Expansion

    If the NCHC didn't take a Power 5 school they won't be taking Oakland anytime soon. I suspect they'd join the WCHA or we could see the CCHA reform IF Oakland actually makes a team. Remember these are only studies at this point.
  4. College Hockey Expansion

    Right...cause Oakland University is so massive. Having lived near StL...they are ripe for a college team.
  5. Mark J Lindquist - Anthem Singer

    I always liked TSgt Robert Carter from the AFROTC Detachment. Then again,I personally knew him so I may be biased.

    http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/4344697-und-athletic-director-brian-faison-retire-dec-31 Good riddance I'd say. I know he did a lot of good for the school too but I'd argue he did a lot more harm than good. Thoughts?
  7. What do you think of the logo now??

    I haven't been able to watch a football game recently until today. Is it just me or our helmets awful? Green helmet with a green logo on one side and a tiny number on the other side. Needs a bigger border around the logo so it doesn't all blend together.
  8. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    They may have but if ND wanted in the NCHC would probably still have said yes.
  9. What do you think of the logo now??

    Doesn't have anything to do with the non-hockey teams having lame jerseys with no logo for over a decade. :-)
  10. UND Budget Cuts

    Having little to no access to the facts, here's what I can say about Kelley. A. He's better then his predecessor B. He was student friendly while I was a campus student, but his popularity with staff amd students took a nose dive in his later years. C. He botched the nickname from start to finish. In the early years, he tried to play it neutral but it was later revealed he was trying to retire the name as quickly as possible. Then there was the nickname committee and vote debacle. The logo design I leave on Schafer. D. While several new buildings were built (with private donations for these projects) and several were renovated, other buildings fell into disrepair. E. Several teams and majors were cut right after his administration. It's conceivable that these could have been avoided for some (likely not all) with better budgeting during his tenure. F. Due to lack of transparency, I don't know how much of C-E are really his fault, as opposed to the fault of state officials. Ultimately I do think he tried to do what he thought was best, but a lot went wrong at the end of his watch and his lack of transparency led to distrust and dislike by students, teachers and alumni alike which makes it hard to see him in a favorable light. In short, I don't expect any alumni to donate money for a Kelley Hall anytime soon.

    I think this is also a problem with the Gophers. Lots of in state talent has been going to other Minnesota schools. Most notably UMD
  12. UND to cut women's hockey

    That's true of most of our our sports. How many fans support golf, soccer, tennis, track, swimming and Diving or softball? What gets me is that the hockey team knew the school was in a budget crunch and still had that massive budget when teams across the Red River were equally competitive for a fraction of the cost. As soon as they were no longer declared "safe" they had huge target on their backs and they have no one to blame but their own inept staff.
  13. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Well all the more reason for him to leave considering we don't have a team anymore.
  14. College Hockey Expansion

    NeutralZone rated their recruiting class as 9th best. ASU doesn't want WCHA if they can avoid it. I think Big wants to snipe an NCHC team for their 8th member and both conferences are waiting to see if that happens. Scenario A: NCHC team leaves for Big, ASU fills vacant slot in NCHC B. No NCHC teams leave, ASU joins Big C. NO NCHC team leaves, ASU and one WCHA team joins NCHC, Big stays at 7.
  15. College Hockey Expansion

    Perhaps. But that could take a decade or more to pan out as they need more actual PAC teams first. The other western conferences offer better opportunities in the near term.
