    It is with a heavy, heavy heart that I announce that our very own sprig passed away this past Friday. I spoke with his son a few moments ago and he asked me to post an announcement on the SiouxSports.com board. HIs obituary is below: http://www.amundsonfuneralhome.com/obituary/timothy-kessler Tim Kessler was one of the biggest Sioux fans I have ever met. I spoke with him many a time at WCHA Final Fives and NCHC Frozen Faceoffs. He was also a regular at our annual Hoggsbreath brunches and I enjoyed chatting hockey with him whenever I got the chance. To the family, as I know you'll be reading this, please know that you are all in our prayers. @sprig , you will most certainly be missed by your friends here on the message board. May God bless you as He welcomes you home. Goodbye, my friend.

    Sorry in advance, this might be long... I've debated with myself long and hard about posting this, but decided to go ahead. I've always found that being open and transparent is a healthy place for me to be. First - I'm outing myself. Some of you have probably guessed already but I'm Carl Engwall's dad, Eric. I hope you'll understand that I just didn't think it was necessary, or even a good idea, to expose myself as the parent of a current player. Second - The last couple of weeks have been pretty rough at our house. Third - Our entire family, Carl included, has enjoyed being a part of UND football these last four years and we are sick that his time on the field as a Fighting Hawk is over. Fourth - We will continue to support UND football and the university as a whole. Despite Carl's dismissal from the team, none of us has an ax to grind and we wish nothing but the best for this team and this staff. Without going into detail, I want to express our appreciation for the experience Carl has had as a UND football player. The coaches he interacted with most directly, DL coach Gigli prior to his departure, and DC Eric Schmidt since he took on the DL - have always taken an interest in him as a person, as a student, and as a football player. Even since Carl's dismissal from the team, Coach Schmidt and Coach Schweigert have continued to check with Carl to make sure that he's okay and to encourage him to finish school and earn his degree. Both of them have called me, as well, and expressed their sadness that things didn't work out for Carl and their support for him moving forward. As a parent, we couldn't really ask for more. In any situation like this, there are too many "shoulda, coulda, woulda's" to count. More than enough to go around. My wife and I feel like there are a million things we could have done differently. Coaches Schweigert and Schmidt both expressed their own frustrations, too. At some point, though, the kid has to become a man and take the responsibility for himself. This is a rough and costly lesson for a young man to learn, and we all hope he does. Only time will tell, of course, but for now he's focused on getting his degree and graduating from UND in December, which is the point of all of this, right? Lastly, thanks to all of you that have supported UND football from near and far. Watching and occasionally participating in your discussions and debates about the Fighting Hawks has been great fun. You're a part of that community, and I know many of you have supported UND football with your time, your money, and your days in a green uniform. Your passion has made this more enjoyable for all of us. We'll be cheering from the cheap seats... Go Hawks!

    This is going to be a special game for me. As this will be my last Potato Bowl game with my dad as his health has gone down hill. We have been going to the Potato Bowl every year since 1985, so hopefully UND can get a victory for me and my dad.

    Sioux/Hawk Nation...... Just wanted to add a positive comment following the tough series loss last night. I'm a Denver parent of a UND football player.....We put on our kelly green and attended Saturday night.... I'm not aware how well it came across on the streamed broadcast, but if you weren't there you'd have been SO very impressed with both the size and volume of the Dakota faithful...... On several occasions we "owned" the arena with the "LET'S GO SIOUX - LET'S GO SIOUX"..... It was our first UND hockey game.... and got goose bumps as we sat in the end section with that Sea of Green. Our hearts went out to the Seniors as we watched the finality of their last season set in (as they consoled each other on the ice at games end)..... The bar is set high with UND hockey...I get that, but there should be acknowledgement for how hard they battled last night. Guts and heart. We left disappointed but PROUD of where our son goes to school.....and SO excited for 2019 Fightin' Hawk football !!! Congrats to UND Hockey this season........... you have 2 new fans for life.

    More than 15 years ago, I used to spend time here defending the program, as it had stumbled after Mr. Blais's two titles. Then I defended Mr. Hakstol, who was a terrific GM and coach who just barely failed to win national titles. I feel that Mr. Hakstol's main problem was that he built teams to win seven-game series, rather than a single-game elimination tournament. With a different format, he probably wins titles in 2004, 2005 and 2011, perhaps also 2006 and 2007, and maybe a few others. But it's tiring defending the program on the internet, so I haven't lately. Now I feel the need again, and it's comical that some of the detractors are the same ones who were on Mr. Hakstol's case, and who probably were Mr. Berry's biggest fans almost three years ago. Also, sadly, some current detractors are long-time reasonable fans that have surprised me. I feel that the state of the program is not materially different than it was under Mr. Hakstol. UND had a run of NHL first-round talent at forward from 2002-2008, and again from 2014-2017. In between, the teams usually looked a lot like this one, with more skill up front but less at defense, but with a similar tight-checking style of play. But "two missed NCAAs!" 2018 was basically no different from a number of seasons under Mr. Hakstol. Pairwise #14 usually gets in, and last year it didn't. From a rational evaluation standpoint, that's the same kind of season UND had a few times during the NCAA streak. This season, although they may still qualify, it seems more likely that they actually miss with a Pairwise finish between 15-20. But a top 20 Pairwise is not a sign of a program in disarray. How has the team played at the end of the year for Mr. Berry? In 2016, but for 25 minutes against Denver, they put on a four-game clinic. In 2017, they absolutely dominated BU and suffered a fate that is exhibit A for how dumb this sport can be. They didn't allow a shot on goal for the entire first overtime period, they actually scored in overtime but had the goal dubiously reversed, and ultimately two future NHL stars combined to score a goal against them. In 2018, they played a very good St. Cloud team into overtime before losing, then beat Duluth in a game that Duluth felt it needed to win to get into the NCAA tournament, which it won three weeks later. UND was basically playing as well as the best teams in the country in March. This season, it just finished four weeks against teams ranked something like #1,3,5 and 9 nationally. They split with SCSU, dominating them 5-1 one night; Lost a "hot goalie" game 2-1, with Denver's goalie stopping 45 of 46, before tying the next night; Split with WMU, dominating them 5-1 one night. Split with Duluth, dominating them 4-1 once. That was in Denver without Poolman, and against Duluth without their goalie and essentially what would have been one of their two scoring lines in Jones, Mismash and JJ. With the "hot goalie" and injuries, you can say "excuses." Whatever word you want to use, a level-headed analysis considers the actual facts of the situation, and those are occurrences that likely affected the outcomes. To be fair, St. Cloud had ill players when they got waxed, and all teams deal with injuries. Even setting aside these mitigating circumstances, the truth, both from the results and the play on the ice, is that UND is playing just as well as the top teams in the country. Could a program in disarray do that? The main things I read here are: 1) They are much less talented than nearly everyone. 2) They are poorly coached. 3) They don't show up. Given that they are playing as well as the best teams in the country, those three things cannot all be true. All of those deficiencies would doom a team, they would be like Canisius (!). In fact, even just one of them probably makes a team uncompetitive against top opponents. Which suggests that actually none of them are accurate. Of course Canisius will ultimately be the reason they fail to qualify for the tournament, if that happens. It is unfortunately another one of those things that happen in hockey. The much-derided shots on goal actually do usually reflect play, and if you drop two games when you outshoot the opponent 82-30, you just shake your head and try to make up for it the next week. I'm personally proud of how they have persevered, the coaches and players. My timing for this post may be off, because I suspect next weekend maybe as tough or tougher than the last four. CC has been consistently good, and at times excellent, since Christmas, and they are hungry and playing at altitude. I still expect another strong effort from UND, both this weekend and for the rest of the year. I also think the next three or four years look to continue the run of excellence that started in about 1996, with only a few dips along the way.

    You guys played an outstanding game. Best of luck the rest of the season, and I look forward to a rematch in the playoffs!

    Probably the biggest win in UND history in the D1 era and people are really on here complaining? Yeah we didn’t do much in the second half till the TD drive. But, we were playing arguably the most successful team in the FCS in the past decade not named NDSU. They are the 5th ranked team in the FCS and had a 21 game home win streak. We beat a very good football team on the road. Can we just celebrate for 5 mins before the naysayers come on here diminishing a great win?!!

    Wow so Bubba's 3rd year he had us in the playoffs, ahead of most peoples schedule, then we take a step back last year with a rash of injuries (yes it's an excuse but it's also fact I don't need a post from you telling me injuries aren't an excuse) and now we should assume it will be a rarity for UND to ever make the playoffs under Bubba. Whatever. We get snubbed from playoffs in his second season, top 8 seed his 3rd year, then don't make the playoffs last year. If you average the last 3 years not sure how you come up with it will be a rarity UND will make the playoffs under Bubba. Even many NDSU people think we should have made the playoffs that year, so if we didn't get screwed that is 2 of the last 3 years in the playoffs. I'm sure others on here would agree.....we expect to make the playoffs every year going forward. Yeah Bubba should have signed better lineman in that class when 95% of recruits already new where they were going by the time he was hired. Fall camp is here, most of us are excited. Yes we do still have questions and concerns....but can you just stop for a while and let this season playout, or at least start? Three negative posts from you before noon today already.....we get it.

    Top Ten Reasons the Gopher fans didn't come: 10. Too busy rowing at the football game. 9. There's a lot to do on Saturday's in Minnesota; hockey just doesn't matter. 8. There was a Wild game on Thursday. 7. There's an election coming up in 10 days. 6. Vegas isn't any fun anyway. 5. Mourning the departure of Lucia. 4. They are so stoked for Big Ten season that nonconference games are just meh. 3. Their most dedicated fans were told by Twin Cities police not to leave town. 2. There's beer and gambling in Minnesota too, doncha know. 1. Maybe all their fans did come.

    Some quick hitters after returning from Houston.... - Offense looked good in the first half and half of the 4th quarter. Third quarter was tough to watch. Credit to Rudy for 2/3 of the game and the players for executing. It's a step in the right direction. - Thankfully the defense played great and gave the offense a chance to win it at the end. You train all winter, spring, and summer for the chance to have a game winning drive in the 4th quarter and they did it. - You train all winter, spring, and summer for the chance to stop a game winning drive in the 4th quarter and they did that, too. - Nice to see these kind words from the SH head coach: "Their tailback is phenomenal, their quarterback is really good, their offensive line is great, they’re very well coached…and you know that’s kind of where it’s at." - Most thought we'd need to get some turnovers to win. We didn't and still won. - Rudy's third down call on the game winning drive, a swing pass to Brady, looked from my angle like it was going to score. It appeared to be a great call that wasn't executed. - Ket struggles with quick outs; hopefully he relaxes going forward and sets his feet. It appears he's not comfortable throwing it; perhaps he's thrown a pick six with that throw at Sac St. and it spooked him? I'm not sure. - On the other hand his bomb in the 4th quarter was gorgeous. - What else can you say about Holm's play yesterday. He was fantastic. - Kostich is the best recruiter on the staff, the kids relate to him as well as any coach on the team, and he should absolutely not be fired, but he has to get the special teams fixed immediately. I'm not talking about the place kicker; that's not on Kostich, that's more because the kid is a true freshman and D1 is a big step up from HS. I think he'll be fine (there has already been improvement). I am talking about the other facets of the special teams. From my view the player off of the line doubled the SH player coming up the middle with Aplin instead of hitting the guy on the outside which led to the block. As we all know normally the percentages say we should lose that game when you get a punt blocked and we are fortunate the the offense and defense picked up the slack (especially the defense immediately after the block). - I was at both the Washington game and the SHSU game and there is no comparison between the wide receivers at both schools. I'd take SH's wide outs here at UND in a heart beat, but the Washington WRs are heads and shoulders better than SH's and it's nowhere close in my opinion. - We were missing Mortel, Waletzko got hurt during the game, and we still gained 187 yards on the ground. Hats off to the OL who look like they are beginning to play as a unit even while rotating players. Maybe last year had something to do with the fact that the line had 4 first year starters? I'll answer that, yes, that's why they struggled last year. Lots to improve on this year but they are headed in the right direction. - Who would have thought we'd have 76 more total yards of offense than SH? Amazing effort by the defense. - I was pretty surprised at all of the negative comments on this site following perhaps the biggest win of the D1 era here at UND. I'm glad there is passion but my goodness. Enjoy it for a while, everyone. This was the game that many here said they "had to have," and they did it. The mood at the game was absolute elation and joy, and to come here and see complaining was a real head shaker. - Beat ISU!!

    Because if UND upsets NDSU it changes the FB climate of the region. Recruits look at things differently and FB takes a big step forward for UND fans and will raise doubt in the mind of a number of Bison fans whose lives revolve around Bison FB. There are an awful lot of fair weather NDSU FB fans who have jumped on the bandwagon over the years. They have no affiliation with NDSU other than they want to associate with success. Same thing with UND hockey and previously with UND FB when we were winning. All coaches need to approach it as “just another game”. UND has very little to lose unless they are embarrassed. NDSU has little to gain. A win for NDSU isn’t a big deal. A close game or a loss means that bird in the rear view mirror is getting bigger and it’s a Fighting Hawk.

    It was a beautiful day to kick-off the year out at Memorial Stadium this morning. A little overcast to start but the sun cam a-blazing as the morning progressed. Speaking of blazing, there is a marked uptick in the tempo of the offense between plays in skelly and in 11-on-11. It's like they are in hurry-up all the time. Execution did not seem to be impacted too much for the offensive unit. This is a welcome change, I think. As long as coaches know how to use tempo -- both hurry it up and slow it down -- in game situations. Yes, yes, yes, the hogs are a bit leaner this year. Noticeably so. This does not appear to be by accident or unintended, after a quick survey of in-the-know folks on the sideline. It was nice to see Otis out there practicing as hard as ever despite having to sit out the fall. His explosiveness and speed seem to have gotten even better and more sudden. And his catching out of the back field was better. Keep it up! And study hard, Otis. Also really good to see Izzy out on the field at full speed. Same goes for Mikey Greibel.... starting off fall camp without a cast on his arm. As far as new speedsters, I give you Sammy Fort. He looked aggressive and ultra fast in drills. He also took some time on KR duty. Coach Schmidt took some time today to introduce Nos. 52 and 93 to UND Fall Camp life. The DL frosh duo had to redo one particular drill a half dozen times one right after the other. No dogging allowed, boys, under Coach Schmidt's watch. As was mentioned earlier, former Hawks receiver and special teams standout Alex Reed is now an assistant, working with Coach King with the WR Corps. QB Grover had a couple of really nice balls in which he dropped it in perfectly with the receiver surrounded by defenders on sideline routes. One to Chrysten Cochran (AKA "CC") and the other to Maag. Maag also went the distance after a short over the middle pass. Maag caught the ball about 10 yards past the line of scrimmage, then made an awkward move to head up field. The move surprised the two DBs that were about to converge on him and he was able to escape the tackles untouched and burst 45 yards for the TD. Leach was 5/6 on FG tries from varying distances. The other kicker in camp, presumably Brady Stevens, was 3/4 on FG from varying distances. His last was a miss -- oof! The No. 1 Offensive line appeared to stay true to the 2-deep today: Waletzo, Tobin, Rooney, Hergel and Russo. Morrison (1) and Lickfeldt (2) alternated at Nose on the defensive side. I will continue to monitor this area. Pedro Schmidt, of all players, had the best offensive showing during 11-on11 drills to finish out the day. One of the wildest plays involved Pedro sneakily getting behind the DBs, and the QB spotting him for a 40 yard catch and run for a TD. Kett looked fine...nothing to write home about yet. Zimmerman held his own today as well. Grover looked really good. Schuster looked smallish and like a freshman should --his head was swimming. Let's do it again tomorrow!

    For being such a supposed "terrible" president, he sure has managed to impress and garner interest from some pretty big name schools during his tenure at UND. Almost like people had a personal vendetta instead of looking at some of the stuff that was accomplished, particularly in the face of the budget mess.

    My first post on SiouxSports after following my friend sprig for years. His family and friends greatly appreciate your kind words and condolences. He was a wealth of knowledge of Sioux hockey and a true fan in the best sense of the word. My first hockey game experience was with him in the old barn in 1971 and have never looked back. Watching Rube Bjorkman walk on the dasher in front of the Sioux bench in the brand new Winter Sports Center in our treasured seats above one of the exits (the better to hide our drinks). The list is endless. Several years ago at a game with the four of us old friends, he retrieved a puck that came over the Engelstad boards and gave it to a little girl behind us. After the game at the Speedway, a woman came up to him and identified him as the guy who gave the puck to the little girl who was in her family and had suffered a tragic family event, and how much that puck had meant to her. That was Tim. ‘A sprig is not just any duck but a northern pintail, a beautiful bird. A fitting avatar for a beautiful human being. I am a better man for knowing him. yzerman says it well.

    I’m Steve Greer’s dad and want to thank you all for your support and criticism. A fire needs fuel! We need a fire under UND and it begins with you all. Had many great times in your awesome town and the Alerus Center is second to none. The Championship was an incredible ride that we will never forget. That team was un-stoppable. The hospitality you showed us was remarkable. We will forever have a soft spot in our hearts for our friends up north. Thanks for the memories and we will always be UND fans! Nice that the conference change will bring UND closer to St. Louis soon. Looking forward to many years to come and re-visiting GF. BTW...we need more NG’s. I raise a glass to you all! Steve Greer Sr.

    It was a nice service. One of his buddies from college eulogized him and it was very cool. It’s seems we spend our whole adult lives saying goodbye to people love and admire.

It was kind of neat to know that he will be burried in his Sioux Jersey. @sprig Rest In Peace.

    This is not a feel-good post and I know there are some who will trash it, but I want to start by sharing a story about John Gagliardi, the winningest coach in college football history from St. John's, MN. The story goes that when he felt his team needed a perspective-check he used to hold a quarter up to the sun and say that the quarter was their football career and the sun was their life and that they needed to keep that in perspective. Damn that loss on Saturday was probably among the top ones in disappointment in the FCS era. Mostly because of my expectations of what i wanted these kids to accomplish for themselves. For me it's a day of tailgating and football, I don't have film to watch on Sunday or a test on Monday and I didn't spend my summer in a weight room. I will choose to be there on Saturday and holler just the same during the Hawk Walk and game. I know the crowd will be small, the student section will be empty. If/When changes are made I know the staff understands that is part of being a coach and as a fan i know it means having patience and keeping the faith. I want the seniors to enjoy their last home game, I want the rest of the team to have a coaching staff that will help them look to the future with optimism and dedication. At the end of the day they are student-athletes. Damn that one stung...how I react is a reflection on me and my ability to keep it in perspective.

    Right now I really can’t stick up for UND football. But how sad and pitiful is your life? To have the time, to come onto a sad and pitiful teams fan board on a Saturday night. I mean I’m a fan of the team and care about how they do. You claim UND is insignificant in your life yet here you are. Did your Saturday night Dungeon and Dragons game get cancelled?

    Holy !@#$ some of you need to step back from the ledge. Absolutely embarrassing. The team gutted it out and everyone should be proud of that. Yes, we could have done some things better...but they could have as well. Enjoy the win and look for some improvement next week.

    Entering the 6th year of Bubba Ball I think a pattern has developed that we all recognize. Pre-season optimism based on returners and our last couple of recruiting classes - speculation on who will step in and be a great player (however, on closer examination we find that for most of the recruits we were the only DI offer). A hopeful start followed by some frustrating games - there is always a problem at QB and we wonder why so and so is starting and more importantly why we don't get a quality QB recruit every year to keep the program going. The defense plays pretty well, but there is usually one area of weakness - either we have a great line and linebackers and a poor secondary (who then play 10 yards off the ball) or we have a salty secondary and a undermanned front. The offense has periods of adequacy, but usually manages to shoot themselves in the foot - We usually have at least one deficiency that negates our strength - fast but undersized receivers or conversely big receivers that can't get separation or a QB that locks on to one receiver - here we don't seem to use our strengths well - see Santiago; the O line doesn't get much of a push, or if we are moving the ball too many penalties or other miscues (fumbles, penalties etc.). At this point we are wondering about our strength and conditioning (again) and our special teams are horrible (another long discussion on recruiting failures here). We then start to take care of the cupcakes on our schedule and some optimism arises but we usually have one horrible upset. Then, we fade down the stretch and end up around 6-5. Win or lose we usually have a couple of extremely hard to watch games at the Al. Off season talk centers around almost making the playoffs (if we only hadn't had 6 turnovers against EWU we would have been a playoff team) and a discussion on why we can't get better attendance. We have a mediocre season but not a total disaster and Bubba says we will work harder day by day - rinse repeat.

Some of my most favorite memories I have are going to Potato bowls with my dad. We always went to that game, it is special to my family as well. Your post brought back alot of those great memories into perspective. I really hope you both have a great day and enjoy the game together. Have a great Potato bowl, and I hope you both can celebrate a Fighting Hawks win on Saturday.

    The UND program was so important to them that instead of committing to their hometown team right out of High School, the decided to go to an already established program at Minnesota so they could better their chances of making Team USA. The fact that the team had little notice when the program was shut down falls all on Idalski. Everyone at UND knew about the budget cuts that had to be made and every coach at UND knew that cuts had to be made in the Athletic Department and that there was a big possibility of programs being cut. Heck, even some bums on a fan message knew what the costs of every sport at UND was. You can't tell me that Idalski didn't see the WIH program being cut was a very realic option. The fact that he didn't prepare his players for that outcome or even discuss that is his fault. When the Lammy Twins went out and made public statements to the media ripping UND, Kennedy, etc, I lost all respect for them. I get it. they were part of the program and the knew most if not all the girls on the team. But there is a mature, respectful way to respond and then there is the immature, childish, temper tantrum way the Lammy twins responded to the entire situation. I respect them as players and what they have accomplished on the ice. But as far as them as people, they have lost all my respect and likely many others with their behavior.

    No matter how hard some try to push SDSU as our true rival I just cant digest that one. When I played they were just another game. Mankato State was given higher regard than SDSU. Now--granted SDSU has a much better FB team. The only thing that get me excited is its good competition. The Marker doesnt mean squat to me. When it comes to UND it matters not if you are good or bad , we need to kick your butt and be done with it. Its that simple. UND will always be our rival. When we start playing each other again I dont think it will take too long for the youngsters to catch on. They are going to have some very good teachers.

    As a group, many of you came in unheralded. Many of you will leave as legends. Thank you for busting your ass for this program. It’s a shame things didn’t work out better, you guys deserved more than one shot at the playoffs and you deserved better coaching. Thanks for the great memories and for leaving the program better than you found it.

    The reason I don't attend as many football games now is because the Alerus is an extra mile roundtrip from my house and requires I take 2 left turns instead of only 1 left turn to get to The Ralph. That's a lot of extra gas money waiting for those turns and I want to be able to afford to pay for college for my daughter.

    Montana, the team that lost to Western Ill., and Montana St. beat Western Ill if anyone noticed. Sac St. and Cal Poly rushed all over the Griz. Cal Poly turned the ball over too much including a fumble 6. The Griz run D is so bad it managed to make Smok'n Joe Perothroe look relevant again. (He's not) NDSU made Cal Poly look like a high school team. Let's stop creaming our pants about Montana, we could not have played any worse our last few meetings and barring major injuries in our bye week we will be healthy. I swear half our posters man crush on the Griz. We better win this frickin game!!
