    UND - Sam Houston Game Day Thread

    Hey lets bash these guys after they beat the #5 team in FCS who have double the wins as UND the last five years because everyone on this board could coach the team better. WTF - be happy for day.

    Bubba and his band of coaches

    I don't disagree at all- and I am guessing back then UND was rolling and it was easier to get better recruits... but the wave right now is with the other university (It CAN come back here) and it makes it easier. Plus, recruiting has changed dramatically from the student athlete side over the past at least 10 years. How many want tradition and how many want "how much gear do it I get, how nice is it and what brand am I wearing" " How nice is the locker room, what's in the lounge and meeting rooms (like how many big screens)" 2nd phase of HPC will be a huge impact on that

    It is eassier to recruit kids to Fargo North Dakota to win a National Championship, when they have won so many..... compared to recruiting a kid the Grand Forks when Illinois State, Northern Iowa, South Dakota state, maybe closer to home with similar win to loss results. Then you have the offer percentage from each school to take into account as well. The high performance center certainly helped because it took much of the weather out of the equation.

    2018-19 Season

    It has been discussed - He is Logan's all time leading Scorer, and player of the year in the Mississippi Valley Conf in Basketball and Track. OUTSTANDING point guard who had spurned several mid major offers to play football. His hudl is worth a google https://lacrossetribune.com/sports/local/preps/high-school-basketball-cj-siegel-s-hot-start-has-la/article_dda4b9ed-b238-5ea5-8fd5-ef07cdc17f5a.html

    Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    I keep hearing that the legacy is more important to a certain program. Is it more important to the players who are actually playing the game or the people who had there identity taken from them by the NCAA? Because those people will always be Fighting Sioux, that can not be taken away - but the future generations will be Fighting Hawks and their experience should not be any different from those who came before them because of a logo battle they have nothing to do with.

    LIke it or not - I will restate and say excluding hockey - the Majority.. since you like to bold things .....of athletes playing at UND, and coming in the future do not identify with the old logo or name - but they will leave their legacy as fighting hawks and will do it proudly wearing that uniform for a University that they will love after four years as much as everyone else here does. I am curious though - as one year leads to another and another if the logo or name will make a difference to Hockey players in H.S right now that may play at UND 3 or 5 years from now. They will obviously know the history and legacy of the program - that doesn't change - but will they care which name is placed where - a thought only, not offering an opinion (before someone else has a coronary at that computer)

    I don't know that anyone cares about this or not, but: UND's current student athletes and incoming athletes, and recruits that you all see tweeting the "love" they just got from the coaches in Memes etc......ALL Identify as Fighting Hawks. Current student athletes do not know anything different and in this generation, branding and gear and facilities are all important. They want to walk into a venue and see Their logo, their mascot...... who they are - All over it. They proudly wear Fighting Hawk gear because they are proud to play for the University of North Dakota. Many know about the Fighting Sioux in general, but not on a personal level. in 10 years you will have a generation of Alum who will be telling their kids about playing for or going to Fighting Hawk games......Playoff games, NCAA appearances, Conf Championships. It could be done for no other reason than that. Also, from what I have seen on here and other places, I would expect the Alerus Center will have Fighting Hawks Logos on the turf the next time it is changed. I don't think there will be any disputes. This is a natural time to do it for basketball because the court is being redone.

    Playing and practicing indoors is a nice draw for guys not used to the cold. It should stay that way

    2018 UND Recruiting

    here is an update on one of the 2018 recruits. Two interesting things: 2 Horizon League teams pushed hard for him to decommit in November and switch to basketball, and, he passed up playing in the Wisconsin football coaches association All Star game, to be on campus at UND in July

    2018 UND Recruiting

    Dont disagree on Brookings being in the middle of nowhere What I am saying is: An athlete from the WI area can go to a 500 or slightly above MVFC team within 4 hours of home and play away games that are within an easy travel distance for families. A parent could easily see all home and a few away games. It is 9 hours from Madison to Grand Forks and until 2020 No away games are any closer. Just an observation
