    Nickname....Who's everybody mad at?

    You can't fix 'stupid'...some. People like to live 'in the past'....glad I've taught my kids to think/reason....

    Nickname....Who's everybody mad at?

    It's bloggers with names like yours....and those who call the team(s) Sioux that keep it going.....and the name of this site.....That's what keeps it going.....It's over.....it's a dead issue....why don't the "Susie's' let it go????…."Redskins' Forever"....(GFC)
  3. Been reading comments about the upcoming FB season for the F'n Hawks...I have seasons and am looking forward to it... Some folks still are calling them 'Sioux'....my question to those folks are..."Who are you mad at? or are you just tormented like a 3 year old who didn't get their way?" It's not the fault of the NCAA...if it were...whey did Florida State , Illinois and Utah keep their NA names? Is it the AD, Administration, Coaches, what???? The real culprit, if there is one is the ND legislature and some 'boosters-mainly hockey'....they treated the Native American people of ND badly and tried to 'ram' the name down their throats....all under the 'guise' of respect....When for former finally realized...hey we can't be heavy handed in this matter...it was too late....some NA entities were 'pissed' at the process.... Upset...look inward...

    President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Kennedy's vote was unanimous...vote for chair of NDUS was not......anti-Kennedy GF Herald made a big deal of the mid evaluation....Herald a perfect example why 'press' held in low regard....excessive opinionization in hard news stories...

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    narrow view.....Big Ten Network's cash is generated from all sports...not just one (hockey)….One would hope UND would do likewise...if negotiating a deal….BIG not likely to add a school like UND as an affiliate...in hockey....more likely to add a school with same stature...academics, research, etc.....not just because of a single sport....therefore...ASU has a better chance than UND.....but more likely Illinois......

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Just read the Big Ten Network will distribute 51 million ...PER school this year.....no way will they share that with any school who would become an affiliate member in any sport..

    2018-19 Season

    Geno working out daily with the Gophers.....will be taking other visits......Colorado State and Zaga….top competition for his signing with Gophers...….I'll bet the farm he'll become a Gopher....(or Goofer….as some with a Fighting Sousie bent' like to say)

    2018-19 Season

    Gino to Minnesota makes sense....Gophers need a back up point....It's Gino's home town....team he's probably always dreamed to play for...be happy for the young man....also to play in front of family/friends.... Credits/smedits….how does UND get those Canadian 'junior' kids into school.....???? Always a way....not unique to Power 5 teams.....

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Just trying to be positive as I was 'instructed ' to become....Are you attempting to be negative????? And I know what epitome means...but thanks anyway!!!! I'll compare degrees with you sometime....anytime/anywhere....

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Reported here and elsewhere, UND Fighting _ _ _ _ _ (insert fav nickname) just signed the top recruiting class in NCAA hockey for next year. That, along with an outstanding nucleus of returnees....led by a dedicated and talented coaching staff...should make UND the prohibitive favorite to win the 2019 Ice Hockey nationals. Should be an outstanding year at the epitome of venues in collegiate hockey.

    2018 Season

    So tell me....I want to know...where should I respond to be critical of hockey and coach Hak....?? I did mention FB which is why I responded here... let eat me know the appropriate spot....and I'll happily attack arrogance there!!!!

    2018 Season

    This site is so funny....programs and coaches are open to criticism....which is good....with the exception of the 'holy grail' of UND sports....hockey....I've been temporarily suspended and threatened with banishment for speaking critical of that program and speaking Ill of 'the baby jesus '...(small J)...his highness David Hakstol... the name of the site tells all....if truly supportive of UND...should want to drop reference to it and unify ALL behind the new UND moniker and symbol...that old name 'ain't ever coming back' Two area programs overly riddled with arrogance, self indulgence and self import....NDSU football and UND hockey...
  13. The NFL tried to address the 'National Anthem' issue but did not....they created too much 'wiggle room' and left much open to interpretation... Maybe the solution is to eliminate that tradition....after all ...it has NOT always been the norm....playing of the anthem originated around the time of WW I to show support and was not universally installed, even then...I, as a veteran, take offenses at the anthem played at UND sports venues with the ending, considered 'cute' by some, as bring disrespectful to our 'brave' veterans who served...I've attended sports events in many states and not heard the anthem varied as at UND events....
  14. Sounds like, like Engelstad family and their foundation has moved past the ' nickname/logo' issue..good for them. Now if the Herald and other 'Fighting Susie sniffers' could do the same,,..and pull in one direction for UND!!!!
  15. The healing process would be further advanced if this 'site' would change it's name!!!!!
