  1. 2017 Season

    Cripes, this is no time for injuries.
  2. 2017 Attendance

    I agree with you 1000%. Bubba has accomplished nothing short of a miracle already.
  3. 2017 Attendance

    Not "has built"....."is building". The program hasn't accomplished all its goals yet.
  4. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Brad DeFauw, Peter Armbrust, Bryan Lundbohm and Zach Parise (who I believe committed in 2001) come to mind. The Gophers did not have a good record against us during that time period either. They took quite a few butt-kickings from us in that "rusting hulk" of an arena from 1996-2001.
  5. Conference Realignments - Take 2

    We won 5 NCAA titles in that "rusting hulk", the last one in 2000. Heck, we won two in the "The Barn" (a WPA project from the 1930's). We have won exactly ONE in the new REA. I remember in the years before the new REA, Gopher fans yammering on and on about how great Mariucci Arena was and how it was better than a bunch of NHL arenas and what a dump we were playing in. Yet, we won most of the recruiting battles against them from 1996 to 2001. You make way too many assumptions, Mr. SiouxVolley.
  6. Hardee Placed on Leave

    That is good to hear. I hate to see people struggle with alcohol and/or drugs. Good luck Coach Hardee.
  7. Improving the game day experience

    Neither have I.
  8. UND Sports TV Options

    What are the ratings for Midco non-live sporting event programming? Do any of their non-live programs get good ratings?
  9. UND Sports TV Options

    Does KVLY's contract explicitly prohibit any other media company from having an NDSU coaches show? That is a good question to ask someone who knows. And I will jump all over Midco if needed. We signed a contract with them to give our programs coverage, so if they are canceling one of our coaches shows, I would like to hear the rationale. Nobody forced them to sign a contract that requires them to pay UND for coverage.
  10. UND Sports TV Options

    And these are our "partners" in television? With "partners" like this, who needs opponents. Will they replace this with a Bison football show?
  11. Fall Camp Updates 2017

    You can never have enough running backs (injuries happen). Also, we can always move an unused RB to another position.
  12. 2017 Season

    Preseason polls mean nothing anyway.
  13. 2017 Attendance

    We have used black in our athlete uniforms for years now. Makes sense to use it for the band too.
  14. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    Yuck. Glad we aren't in that league anymore.
  15. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    That is a good example of what I was talking about, I am sure it is not the only example.
  16. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Really? I thought it was about putting the best team we can on the ice so we can shut up the Canadians. Guess not.
  17. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    I heard some people during the WJC last year commenting on this topic. And it seemed like there was some nepotism going on. And yes, I know we won gold last year, but that doesn't mean there isn't some favoritism going on.
  18. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    Don't you understand? Some NHL Hall of Famer's kid has to have a spot on the team, so someone has to fall on the sword. And this time, it's Mismash.
  19. 2017 Season

    There is nothing worse than wasted potential.
  20. Moving Forward Together

    What a difference four years makes! We are moving in the right direction as an athletic department and I cannot wait to see what happens next! http://blogs.und.edu/und-today/2017/08/moving-forward-together/ Fight on Fighting Hawks!
  21. 2017 Season

    WIH was an unfortunate casualty of bad coaching hires and state budget issues. I think we should focus on the positives.
  22. 2017 Season

    Related to this topic: http://blogs.und.edu/und-today/2017/08/moving-forward-together/ It is much more fun to be a fan of this school's athletic programs now than it was just four short years ago.
  23. 2017 Season

    You and me both.
  24. 2017 Season

    Patience my friend. We will find out very soon who is and who is not on the team.
  25. 2017 Season

    Good point. If he has clinical depression, that would explain a lot. I have struggled with depression and it is awful.
