  1. I don't think I have ever told this story here, but this seems like a good time. It was June, 2016. My brother asked Brad to come to my mom's house with the national championship trophy. My mom didn't know he was coming. He walked in and said "Hi I'm Brad Berry." She said "Well I know you are!" He spent about 45 minutes talking with us. My mom had stage 4 cancer and died about 3 weeks later. Class act by Mr. Berry.

  2. Bubbs is such good people its ridiculous. Bringing the students pizza before the games, talking to people on the street that others wouldn't give 10 seconds of their time too, taking the time to talk to youth teams around the state. Like or hate the decisions he makes as a coach, the guy is an all star human being.

  3. Your bs gets a bit old. You wanted to get rid of Hakstol. You criticize Berry. What do you know about coaching or what it takes to become a champion? Had UND played UMass, missing those key players, I’m pretty sure the first person calling for a coaching change would have been you. Some of the people actually believe you and something called the GOBC could influence coaching decisions anymore than any of the rest of us. Sandy is an excellent coach. His players didn’t get the job done. Berry and Hakstol have proved to be excellent coaches. They and Sandy have been recognized as outstanding coa

  5. NCAAs are very much cyclical. UND is the only school to win titles in 6 decades, a remarkable model of consistency. Since our first title, the longest drought we have ever had is 17 years. UND has also won its 8 titles with 5 different coaches, so the program has shown the ability to sustain under different leadership. Other big programs Michigan Most titles (9), but majority are ancient. Program was stuck on 7 for 32 years, then returned to take 2 of 3, and is now in 23 year drought. Denver Among its 8 titles are multiple repeats, the one accomplishment UND lacks.

  10. If you watched the selection show, Starman was all about players, stats, who had good special teams etc. Bucci was all about "it's going to be a great jersey game" between LSSU and UMass. I mean he literally adds nothing. Melrose knows hockey but he sounds like spends about 10 minutes before the game reading over the players names and then just slaughters them during the action. College hockey needs more guys like Starman and Ben Holden. End of rant.

  11. Honestly the 2017 version was electric too, after the check through the glass the game got turned on its head. When Wolanin scored to tie it the place was bonkers then when Dixon scored in double OT I can't believe the roof didn't collapse. The only problem with it was the refs deciding it was offsides using the same camera that the bigfoot video was captured with from the other side of the ice!

  14. Way too much overthinking on this. As someone else said, caste a new nickel, replacing the Indian head with a Hawk. Simple, easy, keeps tradition. I know there is not currently a coin like this in circulation, but so what. Maybe the schools can get a commemorative Nickle going and make some money off ot it.

  19. Does anyone remember when Sports Writers were crusty and gruff and chain smoked and threw a little something something in their black coffee that they drank out of a Styrofoam cup? They wrote from a more masculine world view and were guy's guys and you didn't know or care what their political views were. Think Soucheray and Reusse. Not saying they were perfect but definitely preferable to the soy latte drinking, tofu eating, beta cucks that seem to cover sports these days.

  26. Our coaching staff recruited an outstanding group of student athletes. They did a great job of keeping them healthy this year. They were able to manage some of the very best talent in college hockey and get them to play unselfishly with a team first priority. They helped this team get in a position to win it all. They have won it all before. This group also believed in this program, each other and our coaching staff to stay together this year and take another shot at a National Championship. That should be all the evidence one needs to appreciate the fact that we have an outstanding head coach

  27. If we're going to track what is more/less now a common virus and cancel games for one player college sports will be a joke. We used to glorify players for playing a game with the Flu (Jordan) and now 1 player out of a hundred per team (1 out of 200) can cancel a game and eventually the season with a Positive test. (often with no physical symptoms) We're living in the twilight zone folks. No MVFC Champs, just a bunch of CHUMPS in leadership roles.

  29. Sandy took 11 years to lead a team to a title. We're in Berry's 6th year and two of those were effed up due to a pandemic... and he already got the team over the hump that they couldn't get over with Hak. Personally, I have quite a bit more tolerance. Two down years while he got his recruits in and established his own system and culture is nothing... especially in this day and age of college hockey with parity and choices for kids to play abound.

  30. Score two with the extra attacker with under 2 in regulation to tie it. UMD wins it OT.....not so fast. Offsides. UND hit posts, crossbars and had one flop and stop on top of the net right behind the crossbar in OTs. 80+ minutes of free hockey over the course of 2 days. Someone had score. Some team had to win. Great environment. Fun to be apart of.

  33. Myhra was a character and nice guy. I never would had thought of naming a building after him. I had the privilege of sitting next to Fritz Pollard at a UND alumni dinner one night. Great guy who had tremendous respect for UND and especially Jack West his former coach. He told some great stories of being a black multi sport athlete at UND as well as his Olympic experience in pre-war Nazi Germany. He was one of the best student athletes in UND history. He also has a very successful post grad career serving our country. He was a credit to his family, the University of North Dakota and our na

  34. Yes, that's the rumor going around. Solid coaching move this morning too from Sandy to get those UMass players kicked out of the F4. He picked the right ones too, the last thing you want is to face the opposing teams starting goalie and top goal scorer.

  37. This exactly. We'd trade anything to have had 1/10th of your success. WMU is rarely in the NCAAs, and we've never won a game when we've been in. It's literally been nothing but an occasional conference championship and some pretty close "almost" moments. Enjoy what you have.

  38. You people are bonkers. If anything, Sandy is just luckier. One bounce UND's way this past weekend and nobody is saying a word. In hockey, good coaching puts a team in position to win, but with a single elimination tourney, luck is nearly as important as good coaching. Sandy happened to be luckier this past weekend, as the game went to 5 OT while his team got a bye instead of the number one OVERALL seed in the tourney. Duluth finished 3rd in conference this year, and then got lucky and beat us. UND prob wins 3 of 5 vs them. That doesn't make Sandy the best coach for UND when we already

  44. Went to the game. Had a guy behind me yell “Sioux suck sh*t” the entire game and another guy in front of me criticize “the guy in the wheel chair”. Every fan base has them, but this NDSU fan base has a higher than average number of morons. Pathetic. The idea this isn’t a rivalry anymore is nonsensical propaganda from the Fargo media. UND was not physical enough today to win. That was the difference. The defense could not stop a FB from running all over them. The missed XP hurt momentum despite Weah’s huge play. Lastly, UND’s offense certainly could have done more. Schuster and
