  1. College Hockey Expansion

    So, let's get back to talking about schools that have serious money and can afford D1 hockey programs. The biggest hurdle for any school adding a hockey program is an arena, that hurdle is being overcome in Iowa City. No matter how many times the Iowa AD says that Iowa has no intention of adding hockey, I don't believe him. Illinois is studying it. Nebraska has long been rumored. Iowa is a natural fit with those schools and now will have an arena for it. Smack dab in the middle of USHL country and just to the south of MN and WI, and just west of Chicago. Right in the middle of fertile recruiting grounds even if Iowa itself is not a hotbed of recruits. http://daily-iowan.com/2017/10/02/coralville-moves-forward-with-new-iowa-arena-project/
  2. Non-UND FCS Thread

    Barstool Sports put up the video. USD had nothing to do with it. Still, it's tongue-in-cheek. We can laugh a little.
  3. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Bantams? I've heard speeches like that before. In fact, I've heard the exact same "puppet" phrase before. People have no idea the things that get said in a locker room. Do they actually think it's all "cheerio and go get 'em sport"?
  4. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    That was not us, but we have been up in GF 5 times over the past couple of years for hockey games, tournaments, camps. Regular enough I know the town pretty well now!
  5. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    No. We have not. Watch them on Midco all the time though.
  6. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    I hope he does too. I would be thrilled.
  7. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    I was in Grand Forks over the weekend for my kid's hockey. Went to Red Pepper for the first time ever for a grinder. Excellent. Wished I would have went there in my previous numerous trips to GF. On Sunday we got some subs from Fat Albert's before heading out of town. Love the Atomic from Fat Albert's, always try to hit that place when we are in town.
  8. Gameday vs USD

    You realize that's a penalty. Should have been 15 yards and a game ejection for making contact with the head. Strev was sliding and gave himself up on the play. Jeez. But like the Energizer Bunny Strev popped up and kept going & going. Austin Simmons is the backup and last year I thought he was actually better than Strev. So I think the team would be in good hands if Strev went down.

    You been to Illinois? They charge you drive on the roads there. Had to get me an I-Pass cause I got tired of having to pull over to the cash section of the toll booth. The roads are about the only thing that is paid for in that state.

    I've seen more UA stuff in hockey recently. Hockey socks, hockey apparel, etc. No protective equipment or anything like that, but that's not their business either, they are more apparel.
  11. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Football drives the bus on conference re-alignment at the FBS level. At the FCS level it is basketball and the NCAA tournament access that drives re-alignment. The Summit and MVC or the Summit and BSC or the Summit and WAC are not going to merge because that would result in the loss of an autobid to the NCAA BB tournament. The Summit is going to become one of two things, a strong conference with the Dakota 4 as the backbone leading the conference, or a group of cast-offs that limps along with the Dakota 4 stuck in the middle of the crapfest. I don't see the Summit surviving without the Dakota 4.
  12. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    SDSU fans are very protective of their "precious", the SLT in Sioux Falls. Fact is if we could ever manage to put together a conference with the Montanas, etc. the SLT in SF would be gone on an annual basis. It would either become a rotating tournament or we would have to settle on one central destination, hence my suggestion of Rapid City. The Rushmore Plaza can hold 10,000, it would serve just fine as a tournament home.
  13. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    One could say that right now the process of trimming the fat is happening. Take the 4 Dakotas and Denver (Summit) and join them with the Montanas, Idaho, EWU, and one more (UNC?) and it would be the perfect conference. Then the debate will be where to hold the Summit League Tournament. Sioux Falls will be seen as too favorable to SDSU and USD, but it would still get tremendous support. Simple answer is to move it a little further west and make it more centrally located. Rapid City would make a great host city and provide a lot of other entertainment options too. Now that we have this all figured out for Douple, etc. it's up to them to make it happen.
  14. Let's Go To Vermillion

    On sale to Howling Pack members only. General public sales are still a couple of weeks out. Not sure how many tickets will be left for general sale because I heard HP members were buying chunks of seats up.
  15. What do you think of the logo now??

    Not now, but eventually, yeah, that should probably happen.
