  1. Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    Lol, the "attention of the AP" is merely Kolpack writing a story from his couch in Fargo, and it being posted to ABC News is an auto-generated page from any stories posted to the AP Newswire. There wasn't anyone from AP or ABC News headquarters who saw this and thought it was a big story.
  2. New AD posting and hiring process

    You might need to give the man a little more time, haha. Pretty sure the seat of his chair isn't even warm yet.
  3. 2018 Softball

    I think it is because the field at the HPC is not wide enough. The turf at the Alerus has a lot more space between the edge of the turf and the sidelines than the HPC's turf.
  4. President Kennedy Comments on HPC Phase II

    Were you looking for something like this, or were you looking for something different like inside renderings? http://www.undsports.com/PhotoAlbum.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=13500&PALBID=484752
  5. What do you think of the logo now??

    A lot of times our opinions are tied to our perceptions. A person might think that no one likes the Hawk logo and name because none of their friends like it or they don't see other people wearing it. That might be because the friends or people that they spend a lot of time around them might not have a lot of it or none at all. At the same end, there are people who have others all around them wearing the new logo constantly and they get the opinion that the community seem to really be buying into it. Its all about the bubble that people keep themselves in. The same thing can deal with everything in life and is probably most often seen in politics. Because of this, unless you come strapped with PDFs with hard sales figures, i'm going to take everything everyone says as pure wild conjecture. Right now, its purely Schrödinger's hawk...its both selling well and selling poorly.
  6. Sioux vs Bucky TV options

    I was upset when I saw that they took FCS away, but apparently If you have the sports pack, your Midco login will still give you access to all three FCS channels on Fox sports GO which is available on a LOT of devices.
  7. University of North Dakota Hockey 2017-18 Season

    I think part of their deal with NCHC is conference games only...or something like that.
  8. Jerseys

    They will still fill it in with the number. Did you not like how they did the last jersey with the number in the center of the "North Dakota" on the front?
  9. UND Sports TV Options

    Looks like a couple things have changed: http://www.undsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=13500&ATCLID=785161#Shows The entire page seems to be updated, it even includes the new nchc.tv app.
  10. What do you think of the logo now??

    I took the article to mean that it will have the new North Dakota wordmark like it did the first year post-Sioux logo... My buddy who went to all the games last season said they said it all year long.
  11. What's Needed At The Alerus?

    While I love the new sound system and lights that the Alerus Center will be getting, I don't know if either the committee or the new management group had anything to do with them. The committee has had like one meeting and the new management team hasn't been in charge more than two weeks. A sound system and new installation of lights isn't something that just happens on a whim, that is something that is built into the budget well ahead of time.
  12. What do you think of the logo now??

    Does that mean that we had 28 teams? With your line of logic, Track and Field would be a total of 8 broken down Men's Indoor Track, Men's Outdoor Track, Men's Indoor Field, Men's outdoor Field, Women's Indoor Track, Women's outdoor Track, Women's Indoor Field, and Women's outdoor Field? According to the NCAA website Swim and Dive is its own sport as well Track and Field. A team may only have one or the other, you are still listed as a team under Swim and Dive. Track and Field, though, is split into two sports with an indoor and outdoor seasons. So, when it comes to Swim and Dive, you can split at gender, but that's about it.
  13. UND Sports TV Options

    Fire OS, though built on Android, is Amazon's own little toy, so they want full control over it. They take out all of the google services off the Fire OS I believe. There is a pretty easy way to install those onto a Fire OS device, but Amazon tries to keep it within their own little eco system. It might work if Neulion submitted the android app to the amazon app store...I have no clue how that specifically works, though.
  14. Should Basketball Use the Ralph?

    To the first highlighted point, you would have to be careful. If you notice, even when the MHKY team is out of town, the school is careful not to schedule anything during the game time for the men's hockey team where ever they are playing. They know that basketball games scheduled during a hockey game would suffer on attendance because many people are going to be at home or at a bar watching the game. The school did have a good change this year with having game times later than the normal 2pm during Saturday's with no hockey in town. I think it helped with overall atmosphere at the games and the way the season went down for both MBB and WBB we are most likely to see the atmosphere flourish more (I hope). Men's hockey, though, is an unwieldy animal though, and can cause eyes to be diverted away, no matter how far away they are playing. To the second highlighted point, we have to watch ourselves after these most recent cuts, practice on the game weeks may sound like a good idea but we would have the added cost of having a crew come in (they need more people than the normal REA staff) to help cover the ice and install the floor every time, which would not exactly be a cheap endeavor. It would have to be limited to only before they have games in there to make it more cost efficient, but even then we cross the line of the players not feeling like it is their home floor. We are at a disadvantage because of the fact that UND does not own this facility, meaning that the school has to pay for anything new it wants. I'm sure they get a discount because UND is the main tenant, but its nothing like owning your own building. I agree that this is probably the best time to revisit the thought of maybe having games back in this building, but, and this goes back to a point I made up above, we need to watch ourselves. We just got through some very ugly, very public cuts, and any spending that happens with UND athletics is going to be under very strict watch by the public and those who felt wronged by the cuts. Having basketball games in there is a novel idea and can be good, but it needs to be approached very gently.
