    Please don't bring facts and statistics into the conversation. We all know that scsu coaches developed these players into elite scoring machines and Berry missed the boat by not recruiting them.

    Scoreboard change

    I suppose One could make that argument but One would be wrong.

    There's a difference between being a Vietnam era vet and being a Vietnam vet. Vietnam era vet just means you were in the service during that time period.

    This is exactly right. It's comical reading some of these posts. Even though we have more of the local kids in the pipeline right now, if Bubs had missed signing just one of them there would have been an uproar here. Great post, jk.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    Apparently, there's a zero percent chance of that happening Wilbur.

    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    That's a good point. When something new is posted on this thread I open it up to read ideas/thoughts on why/how UND and the Big Sky could go FBS. I really have no interest, or time, to read all the back and forth bickering. Will it ever happen? I have no idea. Is it being thought about and has it been discussed by the Big Sky presidents & the commissioner? I would hope so, otherwise they're not doing their jobs. I'm sure a lot of people pointed fingers, laughed at and thought Wilbur and Orville were a little loony when they told people they were going to build a flying machine powered with a rubber band. Others laughed at Henry when he was trying to replace the horse and buggy with a motor driven buggy. It's a good thing there are some that dare to go out on the ledge and try something because there are a lot more that would rather sit in a safe chair and laugh at these crazy-*** ideas. Maybe someone should start a thread titled UND and the Big Sky can't go FBS.

    UND to Summit/MVFC

    After we get Augie locked down I've heard from a very reliable source that the Summit will put a full court press on Morningside College. This will be so much better than playing Montana, Montana State. Idaho, UC Davis, Cal Poly, Eastern Washington.
  11. Yes, hopefully the REA management will continue to operate the building past 2030. It's amazing to me that each year you go and attend your first hockey game it's like the arena is still new. If Ralph would have turned the arena over to the university after the building was completed I'm not very confident that it would look like it does. I doubt there would be any funds put away to keep it fresh and new. With a government entity handling the proceeds over the last 17 years that pool of money would have suffered that same fate as the Social Security Trust Fund. They'd most likely would have used all the funds to pay the salaries of professors who want the arena tore down.

    Yes, that's right. Even back in the 90's, when their fans would use the excuse about older players, it was very close. Some years we'd be older by just a little and other years they'd be older by just a little.

    They can??? What have they done over the last 5 - 10 years with their hockey hotbed recruits?

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    Parise committed on opening night of The Ralph. While DeFauw & Armbrust were good players for the Sioux, it's quite a stretch to say we won a recruiting battle to get them. Bryan Lundbolm's dad played for the Sioux and the Gophers would have really liked to get him but there was no question of where he was going. If you want to count "almost wins", we almost won a recruiting battle for Keith Ballard. He even told Blaiser he was coming to UND and then at the last minute went with the Gophers. Yes, they took quite a few butt-kickings from us in the old Ralph but I can't think of one recruiting battle that we won until Ralph gave UND the new arena. About the only one I can think of is Karl Goehring. But it was the Wooger who pretty much handed Karl to us with the way he recruited him.

    What recruiting battles "wins" are you talking about? I'm having a hard time coming up with any.
