    Unless you can convince the REA that making money is a bad thing, that ill never happen. Money trumps all.

    Doesn’t make any difference if we are talking about a school superintendent, minister, hospital administrator, or city administrator.... what are your expectations and will you put the money behind them to do the job right.... I think we need to keep the focus on the future....do some of the coaches need to go or be reassigned? Buying out anyone is just admitting you made a bad mistake several years prior... A new AD will have a lot of work to do....Ozzie has a good handle on this.... start some fundraising right away I get the washing machine comments.... really get them!

    For my $.02, this is the biggest reason for the quiet crowd. I really dislike that we're selling our home ice advantage - crowd noise - for a few bucks here and there. Would welcome as a compromise, there's no in-game adverts during the 3rd period and overtime.

    You're not exactly helping your case here on the insecure thing.

    The problem is that most people's expectations accounted for having a terrible OC, and Sam Houston actually being a good football team. Wasted potential is one of the saddest things in life, and watching UND struggle to scrape by the past few years has not been enjoyable. The more wins the better, but even if UND makes the playoffs this year, that doesn't mean people should be content. The utilization of Santiago is straight up depressing. Many of the issues that GeuxSioux refers to have been apparent, and voiced by many, since before we lost to New Richmond as a 9-2 seeded playoff team.

    If you're waiting for firepower the likes of the 2015-16 team before getting excited about the hockey team, you'll probably be waiting a long, long time.

    The current ticket master system also places a floor on the price you can list them at. For instance, I can only list this Friday's ticket for $40 of which ticketmaster keeps 10%. On a week like this where people can buy them with a Hugo's coupon for $25 that's not ideal.

    I suppose this one wouldn't fly anymore either. Anyone recall this one?!! If you can't score a goal hit the ref. If you can't score a goal hit the ref. If you can't score a goal and your team is in the hole, If you can't score a goal hit the ref.

    I agree a trusted resale place that doesn’t add-on ridiculous fees may help. You used to be able to post them on theralph.com as long as they were at (or below) face value. Now they just point you to ticketmaster. The other key may be transitioning to mobile tickets that are easily transferable. If you are from outside the GF area it would be much easier to buy/sell tickets. I once met a guy from this site in a taco bell parking lot in Minot. I understand why that face-to-face transaction may not be for everyone. Or why out-of-towners don’t want to drive multiple hours and risk picking up tickets they bought from someone in GF last minute. Being able to download the ticket immediately would increase the trust factor and make the selling process much easier.

    No I expected much better last year. This year my expectations are close to being met if they still make the playoffs. Many of you didn’t even think we would make it this year and will complain even if we do. I’m sure many of you would still complain if we lost in the semis knowing your low expectations at the beginning of the year.

    Exceeding low expectations doesn't mean the coaching staff should all be retained. Exceeding low expectations doesn't mean fans should be happy with the current product.

    Really? People take themselves way too seriously these days.

    Were you happy last year because they didn't lose all their games? 3-8 is better than what it could have been.

    I'm not following this logic.

    My expectations were much higher than many this year as I thought we would go 8-3. Many of you should be happy that they exceeded your low expectations...... not having a losing season is better than what it could have been.

    This is why we will remain a mediocre football program. My expectations are that after 5 years Bubba should have at least 1 playoff victory.

    What was your prediction at the beginning of the year for the end of the year record. Many of you didn’t experience ext the team to get more than 6 wins this season. Did we leave some easy wins in the field? Yes but we also came up big in some tough games. The season may still be a disappointment if we don’t win, but I will be happy that we didn’t have another 3 win season.

    Of course. UND fans are treated the same as everyone else on bisonswille and AGS.

    In my opinion it's equal parts "students these days", improving the Ralph experience, and product on the ice. The arena was buzzing during our championship season - since then the quality of home games has gone downhill a bit - not just won-lost, but the types of games. We really need some scoring up front. I know we have some great recruits coming in and some quality frosh, but we just don't have the firepower any more. Remember, this is the fan base that has seen Bochinski, Parise, Duncan Toews and Oshie (on the same line), Frattin, Schmaltz, Caggula, and Boesser. Not much like them anymore. Fan opinion on this season depends on whether you saw the Bemidji series or the Wisconsin series. It seems like after the title we celebrated for a bit and then looked up and Duluth and St. Clown were better than us. We should contend for the conference championship almost every year. Not having much scoring from the upper classes seems like a way of life now. As to The Ralph Experience - start with the music and cut some of the ads - it's not rocket science. Also, someone should be working almost full time analyzing what is needed for the students to come and be active. We need this to be the best hockey experience in the country.

    What was the reason ORU left the south to rejoin the Summit?

    Is that a point of discussion? Is it important? I would say 3-4. 2 on a very regular basis.
