2016-2017 What a Year for UND sports

Recommended Posts

I know it is hard but another big accomplishment this year is the rebalancing of how many sports UND supports. This allows UND to be more competitive with the sports that are most followed. Today announced the end of men and women swimming and diving and with women's hockey - for us to look back at how great this year has been.

Really? Because I see this as a black eye on the athletic department.

What did you expect the dept to do?  Tell Kennedy to stick it?

We do have bad timing for cuts though, last year 3 days after winning the National Championship. This year just following NCAA appearances from MH and MBB. Do it before the tourneys and you have a possibility for negative publicity being stated on national TV, wait till after and it overshadows accomplishments that have been made.

Or a black eye for the ND budget?

Was all the success in 2016 - 2017 just last year? Wow, what a difference 2017 -2018 has been. Thank goodness for volleyball and hockey. I have confidence football will rebound but not too sure about the basketball programs

I wouldn’t hold my breath on hockey.

WHAT??? Hockey needs to rebound....the Sioux have been awesome for decades but again, how many young men are getting better offers from big schools with more money...
