    UND and the Big Sky could go FBS

    I like SiouxVolley's thought process. He sees the big picture. Whether he is right or wrong, time will tell I suppose. He wants UND to go nationwide in all sports, like we are in hockey. It seems like 90% of folks here would be happy with tippy toeing into Fargo. The Big Sky offered us a huge opportunity to set ourselves apart, but for some reason few seemed to embrace it, including the fanbase and administration. IMO, slamming the door on the Big Sky will go down as an even bigger mistake to the athletic department as it was to wait 5 years to join DI after UNC, SDSU, an NDSU did. Honestly, the nickname fiasco has been handled far better than conference affiliation issues. And that's not saying much...........

    2018 QB Battle

    Just watched, WDAZ's coverage of media day. They touched on the QB competition. Did I hear him say that Zimmerman is a Captain? If so, that may say a lot................... WDAZ

    UND-MVSU

    I'm thinking 56-10 in favor of the F'n Hawks for this one.....................................

    2018 attendance

    I'm in the camp that attendance will take care of itself as best as it can based on the product on the field. The product was crappy last year so I expect a dip this year, but a good start to the season can do a lot to remedy that. As far as the student attendance goes...........I'm 40 years old, and the parent of a college student. Students are young people and I know from experience that young people are stupid. That's just the way it is. They will show up in full force for the first game, and it will decline each week from there. It is what it is. As others have, said it isn't unique to UND, or even UND football. The student section is shrinking at UND hockey games as well. Some of them will regret it in 10-20 years when they are forking over Champion Club fees for similar seats that are free right now and driving 100 miles to get to games like I am now.............................. I tried to explain it to my kid, but there isn't an app for it yet.........................

    I am confident that we are going to give Sam Houston a surprise........................

    2018-19 Season

    The mirror scheduling in the Big Sky was ideal. Fans always knew there was going to be a basketball game in the Sioux Center every single Thursday or Saturday all winter long. The Big Sky seemed very accomodating to UND's hockey schedule. We were normally the only team to have afternoon conference games on Saturdays if i recall correctly................ This Summit schedule screams small time to me. It reminds me of the NAIA scheduling that the North Dakota schools do like Jamestown U, and Mayville St. Basketball comes before hockey for me, but as someone who travels with a family 100 miles or so for games, its going to be tough to make Wednesday nights work. But........we all know we made the move so we can play NDSU more often, because that is what the fanbase yearns for. I expect there won't be a ticket available for that all important NDSU game in February on a Wednesday night.......................So I guess I'll just stay home and figure out how to watch it the InterWebs................ And the Mens/Womens double headers? What a joke. Lets just join the DAC-10 if that's still an option. Nobody wants to be at a college basketball event for 5 hours. The iPhones in the student section will be out of batterty power long before the second game starts their warm ups.......................

    Hennessey

    Ryan Cunningham on KNOX is an excellent play by play guy for any sport it seems. I really enjoy listening to him regardless if it is hockey, football, basketball, or volleyball. He does a tremendous job in my opinion. I'd love to hear him doing UND games in some fashion in the future..........

    Where to eat in Grand Forks.

    Seriously, if the Red Pepper's grinders are actually worse than they were before, they must be horrible now.................. I've tried it numerous times and have never have understood the infatuation with that place. Given the choice, I prefer a Flatlander microwave grinder out of the gas station cooler over what the Red Pepper offers..................

    Kennedy vs. Engelstad Foundation: GF herald feature

    I have to say I really want to be a Kennedy supporter. Given his business and political background, I hoped he might be a breath of fresh air compared to most typical University presidents. But now given his disasterous decision to move UND sports to the SumValley, coupled with the fact that he is apparently alienating the University's largest benefactor, me thinks this guy might be completely inept and needs to go away. Whether or not everything McGarry says is true, it is obvious she is pissed off, and the relationship is weak at best. Funny that Kennedy doesn't flat out deny saying the things McGarry has alleged. Only that he doesn't "recall" saying most of them.........

    North Dakota "ALL DI TEAM"

    It has now been 10 seasons since North Dakota became a Divsion I program. I thought putting together a "team" from the last 10 years of the DI era at UND would be a fitting off-season topic. Just a few guys off the top of my mind that have stood out............ OFFENSE: Braden Hanson Greg Hardin Keny Gollady John Santiago Brady Olivera Josh Murray Jake Miller Defense: Deion Harris Dominique Hawins Donovan Alexander Cole Reyes Alex Tillman Dan Hendrickson Will Ratelle Ross Brenneman Garrison Goodman Dayo Idowu Special Teams: Brandon Hellevang Zeb Miller I know I am missing several outstanding Offensive & Defensive Lineman. Help me remember!

    Memorial Stadium

    You don't seem to like much at all about UND football lately...................... The Alerus is an excellent facility for the level of football that North Dakota plays at.

    Big Sky NFL prospects

    Not surprised Reyes hasn't gotten a shot from an NFL team yet. Talented player, but made of paper mache........... He could never stay healthy against FCS competition. Taking hits from NFL players would probably cripple him for good..................... Maybe he will get a look from the CFL..................

    Conference Realignments - Take 2

    I truly can't wait. Guaranteed games against Augustana were the reason I wanted UND to move to DI back in 2002. I sure hope Mankato gets on board next...............
