    2018 Season

    Ne neither, and I'm thinking I won't get season tickets this year because of it. I still plan to go to games, but not sure of committing Sunday afternoons in the fall to volleyball. I wouldn't be surprised if attendance drops off with the irregular schedule. And I hope in 2019-20 UND exercises more clout when it comes to home games.

    http://www.thesummitleague.org/sports/wvball/2018-19/schedule?teamId=084k7k5sgsnrbci6 Summit League has posted the conference schedule dates, but not times. Extremely disappointed that UND will now have a lot of home matches on Friday and Sunday.

    The Gophers wouldn't want to risk playing a North Dakota school that could beat them

    I ended up working late, and couldn't go anyways.

    Anybody know if this is open to the public?

    2018 NCAA Tournament - Worst to First

    Maybe you misunderstood- I was saying big 10 schools rank hockey as #3.

    Agreed. I say take the opportunity if given. We’d be silly to say no to the big 10, even if we lose some conference clout.

    2018 NCAA Tournament - Worst to First

    Yeah, I'm (almost) with you. I don't think being associated with the Big 10 can hurt. Until you realize that UND's #1 sport is the rest of the conference's #3 sport (if lucky). And that UND may not have much to say in terms of how the conference goes about its hockey business. UND in Big 10 hockey is kind of a damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    There is some truth to this, too. The problem with the NCHC is not the quality of hockey, but the lack of big names behind it. Any conference would be strengthened by Minny's and Wisco's hockey resumes and big-time athletics departments.

    I wonder what he thinks now - the program he transferred from is a (somewhat unlikely) frozen four participant; whereas the juggernaut program he transferred to didn't make the tournament.

    At this stage of the tournament, I also approach cheering this way. UND's "rivals" are the 6 other elite hockey programs with numerous national championships (Michigan, Denver, Wisconsin, Minnesota, BC, BU).

    http://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/football/4425628-unds-john-santiago-and-brady-oliveira-brothers-football-and-faith Nice piece about Lightning and Thunder. My biggest impression of the article was how Santiago drops (as if out of nowhere) the desire for a National Championship - a pretty lofty goal for team that has played just one NCAA playoff game, but it's nice they have something to shoot for.

    I think I've settled on rooting for Notre Dame for this reason. They've been close a few times (championship game in 2008, semifinal games in 2011, 2017, 2018), and having another big name school be relevant at hockey is good for the sport. I still wish the NCHC would have snagged them. I think it would have been worth it, even having to bow to their demands.

    2018 West Regional - Attendance

    The region final didn't have UND last year, and attendance was terrible for that game. I was a little ashamed.

    2018 West Regional - Attendance

    I can't speak for the rest of them, but I am definite "Yes" when it comes to NCAA hockey. (NHL season is too long and doesn't captivate my interest.) I watch as much of the NCAA tournament as possible, whether UND is playing or not. Once UND is not in the running, I cheer for schools that have never won the natty, or have not won it in a long time. I also watch WJC games (generally just the USA ones, but may watch a championship game regardless).
