  1. COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    It would be nice to get some of them - pretty blank for a few years as far as high-enders.
  2. 2018 attendance

    Totally agree - After the core of about 6000, the rest is subject to performance maybe more so than most because when the Offense isn't clicking it is absolutely painful to watch. There is a big difference in watchability between a team that constantly goes for it and sometimes falls short and our team when we are floundering. Bubba worked his tail off to improve the attendance and game day experience, but neglected to think of how fans react to what he put on the field last year. After the tailgating etc. it comes down to what we are seeing on the field. A make or break year for our football program.
  3. NORTH DAKOTA @ uno - SATURDAY Gameday

    I remember the Rube era very well - maybe seeing that makes me really on edge when I feel us slipping now. We have established a reputation for excellence and for turning out NHL ready players. Let's keep it up.
  4. NORTH DAKOTA @ uno - SATURDAY Gameday

    Every time I get really frustrated with this team they play a great game. Maybe when I see how they can play it causes frustration when they don't. We still have some serious work to do - I hope they get at it this week and take care of business. Cam did a nice job not only in this game but in handling the goalie situation in general. That's leadership.
  5. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    Quite possibly - even though our facilities to train are the best in the country. I have not seen a Sioux team with worse puck skills since the Bjorkman days. On the times where we do make the right move or pass more often than not we can't control the puck. Same with zone entry. The big question is will Berry learn from this and make adjustments or will he go "Bubba" on us?
  6. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    For a coach who didn't say two sentences without mention "team culture" during our championship season, Berry's team this year seems totally lacking in culture. No leadership, taking entire periods off, lapses in concentration, stupid penalties when our PK is floundering, and after scoring a goal always taking the next shift off. When you add a mediocre roster to this kind of play you get what we are seeing now. Perhaps time to clean house? We have a lot of guys who aren't contributing squat.

    If Wolanin goes, there goes our scoring .
  8. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    I am babbling about the lack of talent on this team and the way they take stupid penalties, coast for about half the game, and seem to give up a goal within a minute of scoring one, and have horrible special teams. And not every recruit is in the pipeline for years. Some are late additions. See any Blue Chippers on the roster. Have you looked at the front line scoring stats? Tell me where I am wrong in my assessment of this team.
  9. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    When I heard Berry talk and watched the team his first season I thought "wow, this guy has it together". Since then he has done squat for recruiting and has a team that is totally devoid of the mental aspect of the game. I am just stunned at how fast things fell apart.
  10. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    The big question is Does Berry have the chops to turn this around next year. One thing about Blais - if you played like about half of our team tonight he'd let you know. Berry needs to get in smarter and better guys. I don't think this crew will ever learn not to take stupid penalties. Maybe time to clean house for the non-producers.
  11. NORTH DAKOTA VS. uno GAMEDAY THREAD

    We have a lot of passengers on this bus. Time to get in some guys with talent and a little fire in their belly and a head on their shoulders. UND hockey is just brutal to watch anymore.
  12. 2018 schedule /team

    To be fair, he's all jacked up on Snake Juice.
  13. Olympic Hockey

    At the tune of several million dollars in the red per year?
  14. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Another reason Bubba and Company should be on the hot seat. Their offensive philosophy is crap as is their player development. They are making it so no top QB in his right mind would sign here. See this year's recruiting results. Time to get their collective act together and think outside the tiny box they have put themselves in.
  15. NORTH DAKOTA vs. CC Tigers - FRIDAY Gameday

    What leap of logic did this come from. I want UND to recruit anyone who can score at the college level. Nowhere did I mention Penticton, Jones, or Rizzo. If you think we have a great bunch of front liners then we differ a bit.
