  1. Future Schedules

    Playing Power 5 teams is great for recruiting and as a measure of program progress/success!!!! Would not be possible if still 'Fighting Sue's'!!!!!
  2. 2017-2018 NHL Season

    Hak and Fighting Sue 'apologists'....everywhere...they're everywhere.....If he wins the Cup or a national collegiate title...somewhere...sometime....I'll be the first to acknowledge.... Watch Fighting Hawk MBB on FSN today @ 2:00 PM....
  3. 2017-2018 NHL Season

    Flyers lost 7th straight.....but it's early...coach'll turn it around....
  4. 2018 UND Recruiting

    WI should be fertile recruiting ground....Badgers only D 1 program in the stage for FB....no D II....all WI state schools are D 3....like St. Thomas...johnnies...Concordia... Of the MIAC...no scholies ...
  5. Fire Hakstol's Replacement

    You're about correct on age.....but live in a 4 level house...not my mom's...been quite financially and professionally successful, thank you... I have Fighting Hawk season FB tickets and attend most MBB Fighting Hawk games...some WBB as well.... IMO there are two entities....whose fans are arrogant and insufferable..........Bizzon FB fans...and Fighting Sue hockey fans....there is such a thing as 'winning with class'...and neither demonstrate that...... Did drop Sue hockey season tickets after 4 years.....because of previous sentence....Thanks for your concern re: my life....'get one of your own'!!!!!!!
  6. Fire Hakstol's Replacement

    LOL...no you don't get it!!!!! Your comment is so hypothetical.....he's never won the 'big one'......either as a player or coach.... Dream on 'Mc Sue'!!!!!!!
  7. Fire Hakstol's Replacement

    I looked for the "Fire Hak" thread, but couldn't find it...... But the 'noose' is tightening around coach's neck in Philly...will Flyer fans and media accept another missed playoff season????
  8. F.HAWKS VS TROY TROJANS

    Gino da man!!!!!
  9. NORTH DAKOTA vs. Gophers - FRIDAY Gameday

    First off, Schlossman does a great job covering 'his' sport...read his report of last night's game in the Herald, the Pioneer Press and the Forum...excellent descriptors of the game...but expected of him as he grew up a 'ranger'... However in the articles...he referenced the Gophers as "Minnesota and Gophers"...while referencing UND as just that " UND" ...never as "Fighting Hawks"....their recognized name...Hope as an objective journalist he's not still 'bitter' about the name change.... I remember GFC's cry of "Redskins Forever"......how'd that work out???? FB and BB cultures have moved on.....if the lead writer covering this sport would move on, perhaps hockey would also...... He's a good journalist....Herald is fortunate ...
  10. Gopher weekend - Hockey

    Your blog name tells it all!!!!! Everything is 'garbage' I'm sure .....if it doesn't confirm to your 'perception' of reality!!!!!
  11. Gopher weekend - Hockey

    No, it's reality!!!!!..UND/ND should have used the Florida State approach....they went to,the Seminole Nation and asked what they could do to keep using Seminoles....ended up donating a % of all sales of items bearing logo or name....ND legislature and UND/fans. Initially tried to ram it down he throats of the 5 NA Nations.....when that failed , then they wanted to appease, but by that time they had alienated enough to block retention....Not surprising from a state that came up a handful of votes short of allowing folks to hit 'protesters ' with their vehicles (last session re: pipeline)
  12. Gopher weekend - Hockey

    Good thing UND dropped FS nickname or they wouldn't have the opportunity to play the Gophers or any other Power 5 conference team..wouldn't be D 1 in other sports either.....Flickertails Forever!!! What was wrong with that Nickname???
  13. College Hockey Expansion

    "Hockey talent in NW Minnesota".....someone made a statement about the Gophers getting their first recruit from NW MN in 10 years...obvious shot at Gopher hockey.........talent pool is no longer within that territory....mostly small school levels of play there....Only Roseau, Bemidji and Moorhead play at the highest state classification in hockey from NW MN....Gophers main source is Jrs. and double A high school levels....Sloppy reporting, but was 'fake news' anyway as main point was a shot taken at U of M, which was intent I'm sure....
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
