  1. I'm of the belief, that other schools, having now seen that UND can eliminate Women's Hockey, they too will be looking to get out from underneath the heavy costs from WH as well. Of course, that's only if they can make the numbers work themselves. But I wouldn't be surprised that there aren't other schools out there examining how UND did it,
  2. I've got to believe that the teams will fly to Denver, and IUPUI/Fort Wayne. Perhaps, I'm wrong? Definitely going to bus a lot more than in the Big Sky which is nearly zero.
  3. At that time when we played Wright State, Alstork was either leading the nation in scoring or right there. It was definitely a game where we didn't get the benefit of the whistle. There were a couple this past year. at Wright State and at Northern Iowa, seemed to stand out to me as the most glaring.
  4. With "One Shining Moment" unfortantely they don't show every team. I think the song is only 3 minutes long or so, and every year there is quite of few omissions, for as many schools that got featured there are twice as many schools omitted. That's the way it's always been as far as I know. For example I didn't see Arizona or SDSU just to name a few. It would have been cool to get in the video, but I don't need that for validation as I was able to thankfully witness many shining moments with this past seasons team. In the end, it was a great season to follow.
  5. The email was sent out stating that a funding plan was not going to be reached by the mouthpiece of the President's office a couple of weeks later, as the baseball team was taking the field. Demostrating yet again, that it was the presidents office over that period of time that was clearly out of touch. Honestly,check the schedule or better yet, have some balls and do it in person like the Athletics Department officials did when they announced it the 1st time.
  6. Then during the press conference, the question was asked on whether or not there was any chance that the programs could or would epbe saved. The answer was no. Then a week later during a forum at th union President Schaefer, did a 180 and said programs could potentially fundraise to save their respective programs which turned the world upside down, because just a week earlier they had been firm that they would not visit that option.
  7. Actually no, the cuts were initially announced by Brian Faison and Ed Schaefer at press conference at the Betty. About an hour after they had notified players and staffs personally at a meeting. (I believe you are utilizing revisionist history)
  8. I can't believe I'm stepping into this... but I did post this on the women's forum yesterday after the tough loss. I don't really like comparing the Men and Women as it's apples and oranges but for curiosity sake Looking at the 5 year run in the Big Sky tournament for the Women is interesting Year 1: Didn't qualify for 8 team field Year 2: Took care of business at home Year 3: Lost as the 6 seed in only game of tournament to 3 seed N. Colorado Year 4: Upset by 9 seed Idaho State in Semis Year 5: Upset by 7 seed Portland State in Quarters. Reno has been tough on UND. Now for the Men, Year 1: Finished 3rd in the Big Sky Regular Season (which was the highest finish by a Big Sky Newcomer Men's team since the league's inception) Won a quarterfinal game, lost a classic Semifinal. Year 2: Finished tied for 2nd....Won 2 games in Big Sky Tournament before losing in the final at Weber Year 3: Lost year---didn't make the tournament. Year 4: Tied for 4th, Won 2 games in tournament, losing in a classic semifinal to....Weber State Year 5: Won Quarterfinal Here's a question, who has more Big Sky Tournament wins since joining the conference? Men or Women? As far as the D1 transition years are concerned...there was some good and some bad, but remember UND essentially went to Huff, Anderson, and Webb as freshman and the team got better each of their Freshman and sophomore seasons where they played their best basketball to win the post season tournaments. I just think, that saying the women's program has been more consistent is a rather cloudy comparison at best. Go UND
  9. Tough one tonight. Could be an interesting battle between this years Portland State sophmore class and UND's sophmores for the next couple of years. Looking at the 5 year run in the Big Sky tournament is interesting. Year 1: Didn't qualify for 8 team field Year 2: Took care of business at home Year 3: Lost as the 6 seed in only game of tournament to 3 seed N. Colorado Year 4: Upset by 9 seed Idaho State in Semis Year 5: Upset by 7 seed Portland State in Quarters. Reno has been tough on UND.
  10. Didn't UND win 79-71 at the Betty last season, and split the season series? I don't think the Fighting Hawks have lost 3 straight EWU coming into this meeting. I could be wrong maybe I'm thinking of a different team.
  11. Actually on the radio broadcast with 2 minutes to go. Before UND started to foul to extend the game. They said foul shots were 25 to 9. 20 to 3 at that point in the 2nd half. Certainly it was unfortunate to get homered to that degree, but they played hard and gave everything by the sounds of it. Also to a previous posters comment on dealing with Morgan and maybe doubling. They tried guarding him with nearly everyone, but they also talked about how UNI, had just made 20 3's against SDSU on Wednesday night...they felt if they doubled, he was such a good player he would find a lot of open players for open 3's. Sometimes you have to pick your poison. That's understandable
  12. He tried a pull up against Weber in the Big Sky semis..that didn't go any better. Looking at the numbers we don't have anybody that can hit a 3 other than Hooker...and I'm assuming he was covered in that situation, but I was listening and wasn't watching. Crandall, had already scored around 2 defenders in close to the basket in the 2nd half so it's not like he isn't capable of pulling it off.
  13. Also, if I'm an opponent defending UND right now, I foul Bernstine, every time he shoots it. Right now he might be lucky to be a 40% FT shooter this season.
  14. It was said after the game on the broadcast...that they shot free throws all summer, and even yesterday they each shot 50 during practice. The individuals who continually miss, it basically is killer instinct and handling pressure. Not sure how you emulate that, but they've all been in these moments enough to figure it out, and it doesn't seem like they can. Not sure what the answer is? Not practicing free throws, maybe that will work. On a positive note...and I have to at least end with something positive. Cortez Seales, played a pretty solid game. That was pleasant to see, as he has been basically absent the first 3 games. That surprised me that he basically came out this season and laid 3 duds, he had to know that the team was going to need him more this year... but if we get today's Cortez as the season moves forward... that will help.
  15. All thes things above sums up the feeling perfectly! Congrats ladies!!!
