  1. 2019 UND Recruiting

    I agree with the current players but was talking about recruiting.
  2. 2019 UND Recruiting

    I'm a Bubba guy but the 3 win season is a killer. We needed to build off the the 2016 season with the playoff game and 3 wins last year killed that. we are starting in a hole.
  3. 2018-19 Season

    Not doubting what you are saying. Hard to believe he can get 19 credits completed this summer from a distance but I haven't been in school for a long time.
  4. 2018-19 Season

    At what point is Jones held accountable for all of the players leaving his program?
  5. 2018 Season

    Me too. I committed to the hockey tix, hotel and airline tix before the fb schedule came out.
  6. UND doesn’t have a female head coach now

    You definitely have options. Don't read the Herald and don't follow Schlossman and you should be in good shape.
  7. UND doesn’t have a female head coach now

    The women's golf coach resigned and is done June 30th. That is not speculation. it is a fact. She is the only female head coach at UND so at that point UND will have no female head coaches unless they hire one before that date. I find it noteworthy and leads me to believe that UND will almost certainly hire a female coach. Secondarily they will want to have someone in place before June 30th so they aren't 1 of 2 universities that don't have any female head coaches. That is the reading comprehension part and what most people would take from the article. You apparently want to pick the article apart to prove a point about Schlossman or the PC world we live in. You found a way to do that but I am telling you what I got out of the article and I found it interesting. As far as I know funding for UND has not stopped and Brad Berry hasn't resigned but maybe I missed that. The only female head coach at UND will be done in just over 3 weeks. That is indisputable.
  8. UND doesn’t have a female head coach now

    A portion of the article is below. As of June 30th, UND will no longer have a single female head coach in its athletic department. Martinson has been the only one for the last five-and-a-half years since Kristen Gay was let go as head coach of the women's soccer team. According to Herald research, UND will at least temporarily join Arkansas-Pine Bluff as the only NCAA Division I schools without a single female head coach. There are approximately 350 Division I schools. I see a fact and context - both for UND's situation and nationally. He could have added to the end of the first sentence - unless UND hires a female coach befor June 30th. I guess I was able to fill in that part for myself based on the first and third sentences. He even says temporarily join Ark-PB.
  9. Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    I tried to use the Red Pepper a number of times over the last 10 years to cater grinders for an annual event at UND. Nothing fancy, just pre-make the grinders and bring them to us and collect your $1200 - $1500. We made it work a 2 or 3 times but they were never easy to work with and didn't have much interest in our business. The last time we tried they strung us along for a couple of months by telling us to call back in a week and then turned us down. I finally gave up and used Rhombus guys pizza truck and another local food truck. They were both great to work with and we are happy to have moved on.
  10. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    The floor looks great. My only contention is that if UND (which includes the coaches, AD and president) agreed on a design, that is what we should have. Whether it ends up being right or wrong, they should still have that say.

    or, in other words...........the rest of the university doesn't matter as long as hockey has been taken care of and you better not mess that up.
  12. 2018 Season

    Great news.
  13. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Here is my limited manifesto on the nickname, logo and floor at the Betty. My understanding from those that deal with MK regularly is that he can be difficult to deal with. He needs to figure out how to maintain a relationship with a large donor like KEM. I am not a big fan of the nickname or the logo but they are what we have and I support both. Fighting against them serves no purpose in my mind. I was a huge supporter of the Sioux name and wanted to fight the good fight but it got too harmful for the university to continue with it. It sounds like the agreement with REA is written to say that it exists for the betterment of UND (or something like that). If that is true then the REA should honor the wishes of the men's and women's bb teams, the vb team, the AD and the president in deciding what is at mid-court at the Betty.

    Fighting Hawks gear has a decent foothold with people at football games and when tailgating. When many of those same people head to a hockey game night (and it can be the same day) they think twice about wearing it in the arena because it has not been accepted there. I know I consider changing to Sioux gear and usually wear a mix of both.
  15. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    That’s fair but don’t underestimate the impact of the hockey staff not buying into the new name and logo. The hockey crowd is taking a lot of their direction from them. Most coaches got on board early and tried to make the best of the situation and that helped with acceptance by those fans and at those games. Berry was noticeably silent. A little chicken and egg going on here again.
