    Boycott/DUMP Mark Kennedy

    To be clear, there is a difference between hockey first and a hockey only. No one is seriously advocating we drop every other sport except hockey. I think the decision to cut Women's Hockey over numerous other, less popular, sports made that very clear.

    What do you think of the logo now??

    People didn't know that? It places in the top 3 almost every year.

    No Confidence on DiLorenzo... Again

    I don't know much about him aside from a few comments my faculty have said over the years. But it's pretty damning that arguably your most important department has unanimously voted against him.

    It's a bit of a myth to say that you need coaching or playing experience to comment on the coaching of a sport. Sure it certainly helps, but some of the best analysts never played their respective sport beyond high school. Playing, analyzing and coaching all require different skill sets. Now some of those skills may overlap, so it helps to have first hand experience, but by no means is it required. That being said Joe Buck is an exception to this as he lacks the skill sets for all three careers. I cringe everytime he speaks. Luckily it is very unlikely he will ever announce a UND game.

    What do you think of the logo now??

    Perhaps I should have said subjectively. But seriously, if an official poll was done that asked if fans like or dislike the logo (not the name, just the logo) does anyone here really think the majority would say yes?

    What do you think of the logo now??

    I think both of your examples are better than our current Hawk logo. For those of you who think that a new secondary (or primary) Hawk logo wouldn't improve fan support than you haven't been listening (or reading). Sure, some die hard fans will never be appeased by anything other than Sioux, but most people that oppose the current logo dislike it for one of two reasons (or both): 1. No vote, an interim president made the choice 2. It's an objectively bad logo. If Kennedy has the opportunity to fix Schafer's mistake, than more power to him. There is the con that he will take heat for spending yet more money on the issue, but if he does it right I think it would be worth it.

    I ran into a few students last week and there is a rumor on campus that Kennedy wants to retire the current Hawks logo (just the logo, not the name) at the end of the year.

    Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Still a better logo than Fighting Hawks

    UND to cut women's hockey

    Culver prep school I guess. For some reason he couldn't get a college job after blindly spending his program into the ground while the rest of the school experienced budget cuts.

    Nothing like a bit of optimism to start the season...

    UND to cut women's hockey

    Probably one of the most reasonable posts I've seen about women's hockey in 2 years. It never should have cost $2 million a year nor should it require a $60 million endowment. Either way, UND is a school first. Protecting academics from massive athletic loses makes sense.

    UND to cut women's hockey

    Regardless as to the result of the case. I don't buy that there wasn't a way to save WIH without a massive endowment. You could have cut other sports (track, softball, tennis etc) and just WIH dramatically reduce their budgets. Idalski's contract was up, step one would be to hire a cheaper coach who focused on local recruits. Am I way off here or are there other factors I'm missing?

    Lacrosse at a "DI" UND?

    Do you really think the administration would want to deal with the PR nightmare associated with canning Baseball, Swimming and Diving, and Women's Hockey only to start a lacrosse team?

    College Hockey Expansion

    For the sake of their fledgling program I sure hope they pick a better coach than Idalski
