  1. UND to cut women's hockey

    Don't think the end is near for collegiate women's hockey....but not a good sign.. I would suspect there are more young females, thru high school age playing soccer in MN/ND than play hockey......prolly same for males, too.. in the US I would suspect soccer is also more popular...both in participation and general fan interest...
  2. College Hockey Expansion

    F S F L....i was offered a teaching job at GF Central In the mid 70"s...always considered GFC the more enlightened of the 2 public HS's.....after your ascerbic and vindictives personal attacks....perhaps I was wrong!!!! Didn't accept the job even tho a fantastic one....pay differential from MN too great with wifey and 3 kids..... Hope you can channel your anger!!!!!! Life is too short...
  3. College Hockey Expansion

    At least most of you get my point...about 'like minded institutions'..... F S F L is somewhere in the past....fighting the nickname/logo battle!!!!! It's over F S F L,,,,I'm sure you're too young to remember the GF Central chants of "Redskins Forever"!!!! Moorhead State did look at D 1 hockey....playing their games in Scheels Arena...10 million start up fee said their Prez....didn't have a 'Ralph' to step up.....yet!!!!
  4. College Hockey Expansion

    Your title belies your thinking....you missed my point..I was talking about 'like' institutions....UND...as an institution, is not in the same class, as PItt, Duke, AZ, any BIG school, or others being mentioned....for expansion....they are more like the Bemidji's, Union's , Merceyhurst's, Mankato's......of the world.... Way to go "F S F L"..... How's that workin' out for you??????
  5. College Hockey Expansion

    Can't forsee hockey expansion at the UND, Bemidji, Mankato, Omaha level of colleges...any expansion would come from major universities and/or conferences....with more resources and alums with deep pockets....than small time institutions..( gotta be 'real'...Ralph was a one time trick pony!!!!!!)
  6. 2018 UND Recruiting

    Chicagoland is deep in talen.......and those kids get "cold weather ".....the cold winter wind coming off Lake Michigan....is much worse than a North Dakota winter.....so no shock there!!!!
  7. UND to cut women's hockey

    You've said that well, UND1.....that's what I missed about UND M hockey,,when Blaise left....it went from being fun...with a touch of humility....to 'arrogance..and it's all about me' with the subsequent regime....(one who could never win the big one....never has ... as a player or coach....and never will....the 'ice may be getting thin in Philly)
  8. UND to cut women's hockey

    7 Gophers, former or current, named to US National Women's Team......out of 23 selected....almost 1/3 of total.... Glad to see many UND players and recruits have found new homes....Cutting a sport at one small school does not mean the "Death Knell" for the sport...
  9. UND to cut women's hockey

    Dear "Management"....Thx for the answer on the site name...it was an honest inquiry...With regard to trolling....I find this site the most informative about UND sports...my honest opinion is that I don't like the direction UND hockey has taken after Dean left....how is that different from the "Fire Brian Jones" thread or the rants against Muss.... Those individuals have a right to express their opinions, just as I should be granted the opportunity to express my opinion about the Hak regime.... Private enterprise has a right to stifle free speech....but that is kind of the antithesis of what forums/blogs are intended to provide...open discourse of opinions!!!!
  10. UND to cut women's hockey

    No...Blackheart....I don't hide behind any pseudonym....been known by my real name...John....for my 70 years on this earth...and unlike several on this post...'never lived in my mom's basement'....and sponged.......been supporting myself/wife/family all my life...and done real well....at it.... Enjoying Fighting Hawk M/W BB and Football now....life is good......not tormented by the past....as some who hold on......
  11. UND to cut women's hockey

    Love this site....check it several times per day to learn "all things" UND sports...this is the only hockey related link I check, some days there is nothing other than hockey threads here....tho.... Glad to see the consencus is a) women's hockey @ UND is dead , and b) the Fighting Sioux nick name/logo ain't ever coming back.... I used to follow UND hockey under Geno and Dean, but then Hak spoiled it for me in spite of all his National Championships....no wait..!!!!!!! Honest Q....when will this site change name?????
  12. 2017-2018 College Hockey (Non-UND Hockey)

    The recent news from college hockey about lack of neutral site applications for regionals...makes ESPN"s point....that at the collegiate level, they....and the vast majority of the US....doesn't care about hockey.!!!!....."put lipstick on a pig....it's still a pig"....the "puck sniffers" following UND hockey can't grasp that!!!!
  13. 2017 Season

    Agree with Eric P Nelson....way cool!!!!
  14. UND to cut women's hockey

    The vocal 'minority' of what is known as the hockey culture cannot embrace or accept the reality of the cutting of WH or the new 'nickname/logo'......or the fact that, nationally, ice hockey is no longer in the 'Big 4' of US sports in popularity!!!! What is it now, 7,8, maybe 9?
  15. US vs Canada - Women's Hockey

    still......have an arena with the Ridder name attached....ND taxpayers then should 'pony up' to support the deficits in all phases of state government....is that your point???
