  1. I have not received my notice to renew season tickets yet, any word on when this is happening?
  2. Wouldn't it be a great keepsake to have...who would be in charge of something like this: UND Hockey, or REA, who?
  3. Is there any talk of Championship DVD, or a year in review DVD like Sports Illustrated does after the Super Bow? It might be kind of fun to watch those last 4 games on rainy day in July...
  4. I agree. The vote has nothing to do with what people wanted. When push comes to shove, yes people had to vote for one or the other, it still doesn't mean that that is what they wanted. I'm not a "nickname fanatic" but this still feels like a bad dream.
  5. The new mascot could be "Mike". Mike the Hawk. Mike Hawk.
  6. Totally agree!
  7. Which sporting event will use the nickname first? I might throw up when I hear it for the first time. Do you think it will get better over time?
  8. I felt the same way, but one of these two names are going to win, so I really think you should use your right to vote and vote for one. Trust me, if there was a "none of the above" category, I would have chosen it, but I really felt obligated to vote in the long run.
  9. I'm a Nodak voter that wasn't going to vote today, because I am really embarrassed for my University. But I have changed my mind and will now vote for the Rough Riders. Some form of "Hawks" was predicted before this whole messed up process started and now that time is here. This vote is extremely difficult because for a majority of people we have to choose the lesser of the two evils. Any form of Hawks has never appealed to me for a lot of reasons, but I can not support Hawks. On the other hand, I am not in love with the Rough Riders, but it is the lesser of the two evils and for that reason, it will be getting my vote. Just my 2 cents.
  10. Great post! You said everything that I have been feeling, thank you! Go Nodaks.
  11. I can't believe you forgot to add this quote from TR as well: ‘I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and I shouldn’t like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth.’
  12. Too late for this being a "farce", this is a joke. I'm voting NoDaks because it's at least somewhat original. There's already RoughRiders at the High School, and Fighting Hawks is just silly because you try to retain some of the past by keeping the word "Fighting" and then you pick the most bland animal/bird possible. Yuck. I am really disheartened by this whole process.
  13. When 3/4's of the voters chose not to vote, you know there is a problem. 60,000 people feel that this system is flawed and messed up, and I agree. 60,000 "non votes" is a majority...I hate to say it, but this whole thing needs to be blown up and done over...
  14. Yep, that's it, thank you!
  15. No, not that one, it's the background music for when the players skate out to the blue line when they are being introduced. Thanks though.
