    Will UND Baseball ever return?

    So there is no way in H#ll that baseball is going to be a sport again at UND other than intramural?

    Will UND Baseball ever return?

    I'm wondering with the move to the Summit, what would it take for UND to bring back the baseball team other than a $20 million endowment?

    UND to Summit/MVFC

    Wow...the costs must be astronomical!

    President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    What I don't get is how DeLorenzo gets to stay on at UND...He was part of the Kelly growth program which caused UND to crazy on building replacement (utilization rate is so low they are now destroying buildings) and expanding our athletics programs to 21 sports (U of Wisconsin Madison had less programs at the time!). Add on the fact that an across campus survey showed him with the lowest scores in trust and integrity...so what gives?

    Social Engineering on Campuses

    How is asking if something seems like discrimination is assumed as threatening to the person asking the question? Aren't you jumping the gun a little by assuming that is the intent of the question?

    2019 UND Recruiting

    So why doesn't Bubba change out the coordinator? I can understand loyalty to a peer, but his loyalty to this guy could be his undoing as the head coach of the UND football team...Granted, the team needs to execute, but some of the play calling (e.g. Playoff game) was excruciating to watch.

    President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    I think his Strategic Plan is rock solid and a significant paradigm shift for the University...The fact he hasn't communicated it effectively and brought people on board seems like the negatives here...many people are scared of the changes on campus and most of these fears could be gone if someone did a good job of explaining the why's and how's of the changes. Additionally, ND culture finds it repulsive to be a job hopper and his recent foray into interviewing for a "bigger' school hasn't helped him in the Trust department as well. Many people are leaving the University without positive things to say about it (e.g. Maybe they needed to go?? Who knows), but an even better indicator is the amount of UND alums I talk to that aren't interested in sending their kids here given the current operations of the University which get played out negatively quite a bit in the Herald. Hopefully he will remain for at least 5 years to give his strategic plan a chance at success, but if not we will be back to square one again...

    I heard it was Daryll who called him to just confirm that everyone wants the F'Hawk logo at center court and not to back down to those FSF people! By the time he got back to the negotiating table they had already closed the deal with the same terms as before...oh the humanity!

    That was my understanding...he was there for the first few minutes to introduce himself and the 'UND negotiating team' and then dismissed himself...Honestly, I think it was a stroke of genius on his part or actually listening to someone who is a negotiating expert. The whole friction point for KEM was the President and instead of what's best for UND everyone was focusing on him. Apparently, the move was successful in keeping the relationship in tact and at this point that's a big win for UND!

    That's what I'm hearing...he did the introductions and left until the meeting was over...actually a good approach considering how hostile it got with him as the lead negotiator...

    Wait for the Rod tip to bend a little and then slowly turn the reel a half turn until you feel tension and then pull it back hard...there, you just caught a Darell!

    Yes, both inflation and the addition of the Betty which is connected to the facility...Note that one was paid by privately while the other came out of ND tax coffers and each building has significantly different maintenance and ongoing capital needs. Lastly, a new hockey arena would never have been built by the State and the only reason we have the Alerus is because we needed to spend Federal matching funds or lose it...

    So, is there a financial report from the UND AD that shows your supposed pilfering of the UND Football revenues to the Men's Hockey program? Or is it more money going into the maintenance and updating of the facility which happens to house the Hockey Program?
