  1. 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.

  5. 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

  7. If you were born a male, you should not be allowed to compete in women's sports. If you were born a female, you should not be allowed to compete in men's sports. This should not be a controversial statement.

  10. I didn’t realize how weak this conference was; no wonder NDSU cruises through it every year. I feel like an ndSU fan at the moment; “everyone’s too scared to play us!”

  11. No, no, no, and NO to Bemidji. I do not miss being in the same conference as them. Hell, UND playing them routinely in OOC games even got stale. If they left, St. Thomas would be the lone Minnesota school in the CCHA. ASU and Mankato would be good. I think biggest reason Arizona State didn’t get into NCHC when they first applied is because they didn’t have shovels in the ground for arena. Pretty sure Mankato was a shoo-in to even out the numbers. I don’t care if Miami chose to leave but I’d ultimately be pretty bummed if WMU left. Games against them are competitive and fun to watch.

  12. Higher win percentage for every team in the nation is at home Crowd noise can cause a false start Excited fan base, events, buzz in town Economic impact of thousands not from GF coming to town (on a more normal year) So yes, it does matter.

  14. I understand what you’re saying but if you base successful years solely on post season you won’t find a coach that will stick around per those standards. Penrose and Faceoff titles have to account for something here in the last two years.

  15. If we could land Cruikshank I think this portal would be a homerun for UND. That could potentially give us the options of Weatherby, Ford, Senden, Cruikshank and Jamernik up the middle (and I'm not including any of the potential freshman)and I'm of the opinion you can never have too many centers. Much easier to make center a wing than vice versa.

  18. ^This Yeah this last month has been a complete sh*t show, but no matter what I'd much rather our players get the experience they got in live games this spring, verses say Montana who sat out and had regular spring practice. You can't tell me these live reps against good teams like SDSU and NDSU for positions like our OL and QB weren't invaluable no matter what happens? With this wacky season........ just need to roll with the punches, and then get back to normal in the fall. The way it's looking we have a home playoff game, I'm just going to enjoy what we got, even though was pissed when s

  20. What the heck. I would like to think that if we had a losing spring season that we wouldn't just quit. Teams had the option of opting in or out at the beginning. But once they made the commitment to play shouldn't they just play? Or am I missing something.

  21. I was being facetious, just want to know what this team is going to look like heading into the fall. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm already anxious for some college hockey.

  24. I'm honestly fine with either team winning it. Cool to be guaranteed a first time winner taking home the trophy. SCSU keeps the trophy in NCHC, but have to deal with their fans. UMass we never have to deal with, but it takes the trophy to the East Coast. So, both a plus and minus with either winner, so call it a wash.

  25. Fun fact. Hockey East has 9 national championships as a league. If SCSU wins tonight the NCHC will have 5. Umass wins HE will have 10. Hockey East: Established 1984 NCHC: Established 2013

  27. UND planning for full sports crowds in the fall, but ready to 'pivot' if needed https://www.grandforksherald.com/sports/hockey/6987555-UND-planning-for-full-sports-crowds-in-the-fall-but-ready-to-pivot-if-needed "We are going as if everything will be a full go," UND athletic director Bill Chaves said. "That is our anticipation. That's how we're selling our venues at this point. That's our default position. If we have to pivot, we would. But right now our assumption is we're selling full venues."

  32. It was your inclusion of BSU. They're a fun little school and I love the local game but they don't typically have the budget or mindset to compete in the NCHC. Honestly, I don't expect any NCHC team to leave anytime soon. Some teams like Miami and CC have been struggling but I suspect they'll keep playing on. If anything, I could see ASU and MSU joining as the 9th or 10th teams before anyone left or swapped out.

  34. 95% of fans and the administra ton would move to the nchc in a second. In fact, I heard (not sure if it's completely true or not), that msu told the other schools when the ccha was formed that we were still going to make the push to join the nchc. It just makes sense for us. There is little fan excitement about playing Ferris or bg or lssu. There just isn't a natural rivalry with them.

  37. Yeah, Thome left the right way and I guarantee if UND ever has to play St. Thomas, which won't happen next year, Thome wouldn't be that guy from down south acting like a fool against his former team.

  38. Nope. Once the job of seeding teams begins, the committee doesn't care about automatic qualifiers vs. at-large bids. Besides, there are only four seeds this year. Missouri State is on the outside of the bubble and needs a lot of help. The cancelling of the MSU/UND game was a disaster for their hopes. UND is seeded with a win(likely #4), and probably on the inside of the bubble with a loss.* NDSU is seeded with a win(likely #2), and unseeded with a loss. SDSU is seeded with a win(likely #2/3), and probably on the inside of the bubble with a loss. 80% c
