  1. I think that is referring to how deep the s--- is behind the bizon manure spreader.
  2. Couldn’t agree more! I called the Ralph management a few years back and made the same request.
  3. Somebody had it right, I was trolling! But I have to say I am a bit surprised by the total lack of appetite for bringing up the conversation again, and I am totally on board with that. Now would somebody please tell the fans at the hockey games to let it go also?
  4. Just throwing this out there for discussion...Heidi Heitkamp's name has been tossed around as a possible candidate for the UND president's job. Heitkamp is also very popular with the native tribes in ND. Is it possible that she might be the just person we need to have a serious discussion with the tribal leaders at Standing Rock to convince them to reconsider their opposition to the Sioux nickname?
  5. I gotta say Chad Walthall impresses me the most. Seems strange he hasn't been lured away from Moorhead State already. He has a 172-79 record at MSU in 8 seasons and has assistant coaching experience at Iowa prior to that. UND would seem to be a great fit for him and the next logical step up.
  6. Good asset to have, a great recruiter. Ideally a team needs both, a talented head coach for the X's and O's and a great staff to recruit the best players you can get. Maybe Coach G would excell at both?
  7. Coach G? So you want more of the same? We can do better.
  8. Tom Miller put together an impressive list of top 10 candidates. I'd be surprised if the next coach isnt on this list. Herbst is a very Bubba like candidate, and that hire has yet to prove itself out. I would go with Phillips (NDSU, OHIO) or Walthall (Moorhead State) if available.

  9. Does anybody have any thoughts on what agreements may have been made at the May 30th meeting between Engelstad-McGarry and Kennedy?
  10. I'm not a Kennedy fan, but I have to side with him on this one. What the basketball and volleyball athletes, coaches and the majority of their fans want, they should get. It should not be dictated by the management at the Ralph. (yes, I believe that is where it is coming from, not the Engelstad family) I also support Kennedy's efforts to bolster the new logo. Nothing sickens me more than great divide among our fanbase over the nickname which has been greatly enabled by the management of the Ralph who continue to do everything they can to keep the Sioux name front and center. They have succeeded in keeping the hockey fanbase Sioux fans while every other sport has moved on and identifies as Fighting Hawks. I was as staunch a supporter of the Sioux nickname as anyone, and always will be. But you know what? I can't change what has happened. I can't change the minds of those who somehow thought the name was offensive, while most of us thought it was honorable. I can choose to live in the past and be somewhat unfulfilled when our teams are introduced as the Fighting Hawks, or I can choose to embrace it and move on with my life and find solace in supporting the university that I love.
  11. Changing the nickname back to the Sioux? (Standing Rock has a new tribal leader)
  12. This is coming from a guy that loves the Sioux nickname and still wears Sioux gear and will always love it, but I have new Hawk gear also and love it the same. That said, the time has come for our sports teams to all play under one united banner for the good of the university. The football, volleyball and both basketball teams embraced it and had great success. The powers that be in the hockey program need to move forward and do the same. Put it on the uniforms, on the ice and on the outside of the arena. Leave the Sioux logo anywhere it is integrated into the building or has historical significance as a continuing reminder of our great past, but it is clearly time to move forward and end the great divide and it must begin with leadership at the Ralph.
  13. How unbiased could a poll on a website called Siouxsports.com possibly be?
  14. NDSU loves itself so much it is going to play itself? LOL, just a typo.
  15. Since NDSU got its way with two home games (2015 and 2019) vs UND and none in GF, where will the first Missouri Valley Conference game be played in 2020? Will the MVC see the injustice and give the game to Grand Forks or will they favor the older member of the conference and play a third straight game in Fargo? NDSU's insistence that both games under the current deal be played in Fargo may backfire on them when the MV chooses Grand Forks for the first game that really means something..
