  1. For those of you that can't follow the entire thread. SJHovey talked about the contributions of the entire family, not just the twins. Several of you ignored that part of his statement and just made it about your argument. The entire Lamoureux family has been an important part of the UND Athletics family for many years, probably longer than some of you have been alive. And I'm guessing that the Lamoureux family has more national titles than anyone on this board.
  2. Actually, the Lamoureux family has 2 National titles at UND.
  3. UND was in the same league as Minnesota for 62 years. The same league as Wisconsin for 44 years. The same league as Michigan and Michigan State for 30 years each. The same league as Notre Dame for 10 years. Those would all be considered historical opponents. The only 2 schools from the Big 10 that UND hasn't been in a league with are Ohio State and Penn State. Minnesota and Wisconsin are just as local as Duluth, St. Cloud, and Omaha. As far as NCHC opponents, they have been in the same league as Denver and Colorado College for 66 years each, Duluth for 51, St. Cloud for 27, Omaha for 7, Miami and Western Michigan for 4. UND has plenty of history with schools in both leagues. UND has had more deeply heated rivalries with Minnesota and Wisconsin over the years than with any NCHC schools other than possibly Denver.
  4. There aren't any 2020 Winter Olympics. Winter Olympics will be held in 2018, 2022, and 2026. Summer Olympics will be held in 2020, 2024, and 2028.
  5. Ray played at UND for 2 years in the mid 70's. He coached at Thompson in the 80's. He also coached at Standing Rock for a while. I think he coaches at Grant County High School right now. Ray is about 5' 5" and grew up in New York City. His daughter, Tonia, played at Thompson and at UND. She was part of the National Champion teams of the 90's.
  6. Montana and Montana State both have a lot more name recognition in Division I, which covers half of your examples. Montana, especially, has had some years with good success in basketball for a low level DI. There may be connections between staff that help. There could be multiple other reasons that games happen. I didn't say it was impossible. The truth is that a school like UND, located a long distance from almost all high Division I schools and playing in a low level league, is going to have a very hard time getting games against P5 schools. The P5 schools have very little incentive to play UND when they have 300+ other choices and most of them make more sense. But the budget has absolutely nothing to do with it. The school would welcome a chance to play at a P5 school for the exposure and the money. But it is highly unlikely you will see a P5 school play at UND unless it is another Kansas type situation.
  7. For those that are asking for games against big time opponents, what is in it them? They have a lot of mid and low level Division I schools that are much closer. Those schools are probably better known by the local fans. They all want to play the big name schools. And it probably doesn't cost much for them to travel because they are close. Plus playing UND hurts the RPI. Those are a couple of the reasons it is hard to find higher level opponents that will play UND.
  8. Who said they were out "to get" Jones? Let's say the interview was arranged and publicized. Then Jones had to cancel. It would be pretty normal for them to play with the situation rather than just say he wasn't available. Everything turns into a bit on KFAN.
  9. It's also not out of the realm of possibility that KFAN was notified that Jones couldn't make it and they decided to make a "no-show" bit out of the opportunity.
  10. Sometimes bankruptcy is just a tool to eliminate or restructure debt. It happens a lot.
  11. I'm pretty sure that's $50 for the entire series.
  12. The schools are named in the North Dakota Constitution. A change in the Constitution has to be approved by a vote of the people. The people are very unlikely to close one of the schools.
  13. Call or text me at 701-739-2362
  14. I still have the tickets available for tonight. Make me an offer if you're interested.
  15. Tickets are still available. Make me a decent offer.
