    ITS OVER!!!

    I'm not calling them kids nor do I defend the argument behind that group of thought. I'm also not sensitive to and for them either. They aren't boys anymore and they came to college to pursue hockey now above all else, whether or not hockey ends up being their forever. All I'm saying is the guys are aware of what the fans think and the criticism (again, along with praise) is taken to heart.

    ITS OVER!!!

    Was friends with a few of the guys, and had classes with even more, who played on the '13-'16 teams...... you'd be surprised. They are aware of SS and the scrutiny (or praise) they receive on this board. SS is just as accessible to them as it is to all of us. And believe it or not, there's emotional sincerity driving their appreciation for us fans, be it personally, in an interview or whatever the mode is.

    UND vs DU

    As great as it would have been to pack the Ralph for the natty, I can't imagine being anywhere else but downtown GF for the game. One of the best nights of my life, as I'm sure many others can say.

    Omaha at UND Gameday (March 9)

    'You're correct, my mistake. Was looking at and focused on the percentages of the 40/89 or 34/90. Not sure what led to it. Thanks for the clarification.

    It's worse.

    UND Budget Cuts

    GREAT question that you'd think would be answered by now, especially with the number of votes of no confidence on his record.

    How much more?

    Sincerely, I'm not picking on just this post but those of the like that have been coming in waves over the last two months.... Clinging to these very broad topics that are obviously catalysts for change without granular suggestion for improvement, is simply wasted space. At the end of the day, we all want a better team. The construct of that better team is up to our coaching staff, who are paid professionals brought into our program for a reason. Be it conversion rates on the PP, strategic and efficient line orientation/combinations, getting up and down the ice via breakouts and zone play structure..... so many things go into smart play. Talent this year is lacking relative to years past, but that isn't to say it's not there at all. I don't disagree that we have other deficiencies (could be in our staff, sure) and changes need to be made, but statements similar to the quoted above are and have been awfully frustrating. We aren't a team without coaches, and games aren't played without our athletes. Everyone is responsible for the execution and requires, at the very least, a reciprocal effort. On the bright side, we have the top face-off winner in the country by a long shot in Rhett, which is a respect that will be sorely missed but hopefully a role that can be filled and evenly distributed in the coming years. A majority of our current roster has promising potential, and that coupled with incoming recruiting classes is an exciting prospect for our beloved program. It's a down year, but far from the "demise" as some would suggest. Until then....let's do our best to enjoy this final stretch. It's not over until it's over. The negative energy leads to the lower.

    2019-20 hockey schedule

    Not much of a choice being independent. Pumped to see them capitalize on their endowment. The evolution of that team over the last few years has been fun to watch.

    2019-20 hockey schedule

    I agree completely with the Huntsville and Canisius sentiment. It's expensive and, at best, a schedule filler that could have a detrimental impact in the event our boys don't show up to play. Anybody feel free to correct if I'm wrong, but I believe when we have a series against an atypical opponent, no matter the host, they do their best to duplicate that series at some point in the other building. Multiple drivers here (offset travel costs, guarantees non-conference scheduled games, etc.). I do know it didn't happen the last time UAH was in town. Was at that series a few years ago and it was uneventful. As many of us know their program has been shaken up a couple times this past decade with threats of being shut down or moving out of the NCAA ranks. For all reasons, a tough opponent to schedule with, but if anything good exposure and experience for everyone.

    Prospective Sioux Recruits

    If he put up 2.64PPG last year, just over 2 this year and isn't in the juniors, there has to be more to the story.

    Haha, all good man. We're here for the same reason; credit to you on conveying our mutual line of thought when trying to identify the crux of this season's woes.

    Everything in the parentheses was 100% a joke. All fun and games, no fingers being pointed at anyone. Try not to hurt your brain thinking deeply about this. Not worth the effort.

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Considering the caliber of upcoming recruiting classes between us and Wisco, along with a bright outlook on UMN's rebound after this season, I don't think we're that far off. Keeping it sustained, however, is another topic.

    If no outright suggestion of injury, likely sickness and hopefully ready to go again for tomorrow. (AKA Bubs had an early week hoorah kegger with the boys and a couple of casualties were had)

    UND vs. Duluth -- Friday Gameday

    Weirdly, the closer we get to this game, the more and more my nerves are calming. I have a good feeling about tonight despite some holes in our line-up. UND 3-2; JBD on one.

    Campus Closed

    Couldn't agree more. Just a few years ago (school year 2014-2015) I remember a handful of walks to 8ams in January where normal air temps were -28F. Class getting canceled wasn't a discussion, much less a thought on my mind; we just dealt with it. Dealing with the same thing down in the cities. Put up with these same freezing below zero temps in high school, fully expected to go to school and now most of the metro area has it off through Thursday. The level of sensitivity continues to rise almost faster than political correctness these days.
