  1. What is disturbing is how the media see this event, as it does with most things, through a political lens. It is hard to find news that is not sensationalized, left or right.
  2. That is the man. I have a friend whose parents had seats right across the visitor tunnel from Bruce. It was comical watching him throw comments the whole game at the opposing team/coach. Brooks wanted his revenge.
  3. I have a story that I heard a long time ago and I am not even sure if it is true or who told me. A certain fan used to sit behind the visitor bench and liked to aggravate opposing coaches and Herb Brooks was one of his favorite targets. In an effort to get some retribution Brooks had light syrup poured on the fans seat, so when he came in and sat down he didn’t see it. Brooks turned around and had a good laugh. Hockey is the best sport. The personalities, the action, the rivalries.. Sioux hockey is the greatest with the best fans in the world.
  4. I like this idea. Would honor the conference championship and differentiate it from the others. “Unfinished business” for the guys in the business suits.
  5. To get us through this trying time. One of my favorites is the from the 80s against Wisconsin. UND scored a goal and a dead badger swung out of the rafters right in front of the press box. The place erupted.
  6. My son had not heard that anyone else had come up with this idea and said, “well when you are playing a game and your mom calls you to come inside, whoever is ahead wins, so UND should win”. He is a teenager and was joking.
  7. Evidently UND is still in the Big Sky... https://www.argusleader.com/story/sports/college/2020/03/03/summit-league-tournament-brackets-schedule-results-live-updates-ncaa-basketball/4825594002/
  8. There was a manager who put together his annual budget, with reductions in one if his departments, as he thought that department was inefficient and did same of the same work as another department. He forwarded his budget to the people who reviewed the budget and funded the departments. They disagreed with his assessment and funded how they thought best. The budget was not cut, nor were the inefficiencies corrected. Am I close?
  9. I attended a men’s breakfast at my church this morning wearing a UND sweatshirt. One of the men asked if that was the school that kept winning the championship. I told him no, it was the other North Dakota school and we talked a bit more about football. He asked if that was the D3 or NAIA championship, since he knew UWF won the D2 championship. He was shocked to find out that it was actually Division I. Funny.
  10. I can post the “plumbing” plan tomorrow.
  11. I am a contractor on the Gulf Coast and get invitations to bid on projects along the coast. I saw the Nicholls Athletics Building get posted today. After UND played there recently, I thought there may be some interest regarding this.
  12. Is it just me or does Mankato remind anyone of UND 20 years ago, top notch hockey and a football team on the edge of a D2 championship. Nice to see our local team win it this year after failing two years ago.
  13. I had jury duty this week. Due to the jury pool waiting area being cooled to the mid 60s I had on a pullover that had UND Hockey on it. No logo, No Sioux. I walked out of the vending area and was greeted with a “Go Sioux” from a lady passing by. Made me smile. The name lives on 1600 miles away.
  14. I see Sica's point. Saigo led the charge against the Native American nicknames with the NCAA. St. Cloud State had protests whenever UND played there due to the Sioux name. Not that the demise of SCSU football and athletic woes are exactly connected to the actions from 15-20 years ago, but....karma.
  15. Kind of nice to see how opposition views the coverage that UND hockey enjoys. Thanks Brad and the GF Herald. I also liked this line..
