    President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Larger definitely, better performing is a stretch, as someone who has worked in a university setting I can tell you that really about the only ACT, SAT and GRE scores will tell you, in the long run, is how well students take standardized tests. I have seen plenty of the students that you classify as poorer performing, go on to thrive and graduate with honors, and likewise, I have seen plenty of "higher" performing students that crash and burn or graduate with middling grades. The reality is that the people who love standardized tests are admissions officers who have the herculean task of deciding who gets admitted to the university each year, and standardized test scores are a good way to cut out big swaths of applicants and discourage some from even applying. I can't argue with you on higher profile or weather though. But saying its better school based on act scores just shows how many applicants that school needs to cut back on.

    President Kennedy Candidate for UCF President's Job

    Kennedy pretty much ran out of goodwill when it came out that he's already looking for a new job at a "better" university. I could see people being a little more forgiving if he had been on the job for a longer period of time, but given that its been less than 5 years it just looks bad for him.

    major difference - one was designed by a professional firm that took $50,000 for a logo that bore a striking to a distinct existing logo, the other was done by a fan for shits and giggles which bears a tangential resemblance to the Nazi eagle, but would also bear the same general resemblance to the US eagle, Prussian eagle, Russian eagle, polish eagle.... the list goes on. That said nice job going the Nazi reference, that's what to goofer fans were doing after the f'hawks name won the lottery. Although... adopting the nazi eagle symbol would piss off all the gender, ethnic, and Starbucks studies majors that make up the future Starbucks workforce, who knows maybe they'll transfer out of UND and we can actually enjoy our university again.

    Actually, its based on the Plains Indians Symbol for the Thunder Bird, the Birds that would often be seen prior to a storm. But Hey I guess Godwin's law still applies. Still, why worry anymore, anyone who right of Marx is seen as a Nazi these days so may as well just use the Nazi eagle anyways.

    That was part of the thing that got me about the initial unveiling of the Postal Hawk logo, I was expecting A primary and Secondary logo, When is saw the current logo I thought it was just a secondary logo. Now functionally speaking whether you think its a good or bad logo, it works for most sports, but for hockey, it only really works as a secondary logo worn on the shoulder patch. However, if you tried to put that logo on the front of Jersey I don't think it would look good at all. I would like to see them try something like this, though no doubt the hordes of PC worthless studies majors that infest most campuses would throw a shitfit screaming about cultural appropriation because the design looks too native, cause god forbid anyone's sensibilities should be hurt.

    I'm betting its just a rumor, whatever he thinks of the logo the fact of the matter is they just spent 50,000 on is another 38,000 on the stupid fur-suit. I'm guessing they need to get a few more years out of it before redesigning it.

    College Hockey Expansion

    Great then the NCHC can be just as geographically spread out as the WCHA. I mean don't get me wrong its cool that more schools are interested though I worry about college hockey become too much like college basketball. But still, UND just switched conferences in all the other sports to decrease costs, adding Louisville would only up travel costs for the league as a whole.

    Would have been a better hashtag if the gaggle of PC profs that ruled the Nickname Committee had had the balls to go with an aviation-themed Nickname.

    Well if the tags are still on then he was probably going to return it.
