  1. And the Duluth News Tribune photo on the story of Pionk leaving is him driving his shoulder into Cam. Don't feel sorry for UMD at all.
  2. You are correct and I knew that, but as I was typing on my phone I left some clarification out. My mistake. That said, my point remains. You win on MN and WI and I agree with you there. While historically correct on Michigan and Michigan State, only the oldest UND fans remember that. A live rivalry really doesn't exist with any of those teams with anyone under 50 and many over 50. Also, other than MN, you have no local game (Duluth, St. Cloud, etc.) which I believe is important to the fan experience. I think the regionalism of conference affiliation is a big deal for the fan experience, and you'll lose that in the Big10. But even more than that, I'm concerned that UND would get short shrift in other matters from that arrogant conference.
  3. In this day and age i can understand the lure of $ and association. I just think we've seen the detrimental effects of busting up a historical conference and the related rivalries and worry what would happen if UND was playing a little 6 schedule instead of the local and historical opponents we are used to. Couple that with a complete distrust of the Big10 conference.....i would fear being treated like the red headed step child in that conference. I agree there would need to be iron clad guarantees and i wouldn't even trust them to live up to those.
  4. I admit I haven't paid really close attention to a lot of what has been written for and against UND to Big6, but I don't understand the attraction.
  5. We're fans. We're not driving, we're in the passenger seat. We still get to experience the thrills of the ride, but we can check our looks in the mirror or even text if we want.
  6. Looked like a CFB 2, there, same as UND was called against in the UMD game
  7. No Punk
  8. Agree with you on the season as whole, but I think its arguable over the last 2 weekends of the season
  9. I understand the point you are making, but is Duluth that much more blue collar than Grand Forks?
  10. I certainly would have liked to see Jost stick around for another year for the program to really imprint on him. I suspect having been here less than 12 months he'll barely remember his time at UND.
  11. Clearly, we're not married
  12. He did one year, but if I recall correctly he gave it up after a while as it was difficult to act as a captain and play the position. it's been a long time, though, so someone feel free to correct me.
  13. Armbrust's save % wasn't nearly that good....
  14. True but they played without Boeser, or a healthy Boeser for a good share of the season. That accounts for some of it.
  15. agree completely with this
