  1. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    So, have B1G homers been sitting around for years waiting to have enough statistical "evidence" to mount their B1G > NCHC charge? One good season and WHAM! My question is, where was this conversation each of the past four years? And can you really make the argument with a straight face on the heels of Notre Dame's inaugural season in the league?
  2. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    ESPN just reported SF attendance at 8k.
  3. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    ESPN brought the "A" camera crew to Sioux Falls this weekend: The puck has been off screen so much it doesn't need a SAG card.
  4. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    And both games go to intermission at the same damn time.
  5. 2017-18 Non-UND Hockey

    Instead of the penalty box, couldn't the AFA players simply be given two minutes of KP?
  6. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Starting with the lowest roster number, I'm 2 for 2 with traffic citations, 1 for 2 with the latest brouhaha. This shouldn't take long.
  7. University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    So we're 5-on-3 for two minutes, and then what?
  8. I had a feeling this might go 'viral' once Schlossman tweeted it out.
  9. Anyone have Wild Tickets available?

    Hot tickets. Could probably save some $$$ by sitting 2 and 1, rather than 3 together.
  10. Anyone have Wild Tickets available?

    By "best" do you mean cheapest, or safest? Because those things are sometimes incompatible. I have bought re-sale tickets using TM and StubHub, and I have never had a bad experience. Private parties via Craigslist can be a mixed bag...PayPal gives the buyer some protections. Then again, I see a lot of handshake cash transactions taking place across the street from the venue 20 minutes before game time, too.
  11. 2018 West Regional - Attendance

    The poll closes in a few hours, but as the pollster, I'll go ahead and make some preliminary observations: Even with most votes coming in before the weather situation was imminent, it is fairly clear that UND fans were not going to be filling the stands this weekend, even if it meant losing money on tickets. I sometimes wonder whether UND hockey fans are also 'hockey fans.' Judging from certain events in Grand Forks of late (U18 worlds, womens USA vs CAN, Iowa Wild vs Moose exhibition), I would tend to say no. The relative lack of excitement about this UND-hosted NCAA regional within moderate driving distance doesn't change that answer with respect to college hockey, although I know a number of you are frequent attendees at the Frozen Four. Maybe the ultimate test would be a UND-less regional in Fargo, but let's hope that doesn't happen. The 36% of you who 'never intended to go' surprised me -- I suppose that knowing the geographic makeup of that bloc would be helpful, and maybe some of you were planning on going to the Frozen Four instead. The 23% who hadn't yet bought tickets is also a bit surprising as demand was initially very high (i.e., the lower bowl basically sold out) -- but I guess you would have had access to the upper bowl, the other teams' unused allotments, and the secondary market. Not really surprising to hear this week that the participating schools did not use up their allotments; as another person pointed out, UND really is in rarefied air when it comes to traveling fan support. The tickets forum here, and peeks yesterday at Craigslist in both GF and Sioux Falls tell a similar story. Paid attendance will, of course, be strong and the NCAA should be pleased. Butts-in-seats is the question, and we'll have to see how things look (unfortunately, on television). If you are at the games, feel free to post pics and/or your observations of the crowd. The surprise ending is that several of us appear to have seized upon a unique opportunity to make charitable donations to good causes in and around SF, especially those that can brighten some kids' weekends and possibly even ignite a passion for hockey. I hope that Sioux Falls' youth hockey is also promoting the event, and that unsold tickets will not go unused. Thanks for participating!

    I bought mine on TicketMaster and simply sent the 'print at home' .pdf as an e-mail attachment.

    Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire still accepting donations. And @franchise ,
  14. 2018 West Regional - Attendance

    Awesome idea. Is this a thing they do, or do you have to know someone locally?
