  1. I guess I gotta say 72-2 UND so I can be on @Stockdamhockey's team!
  2. Yeah, because the apathy of fans is exactly the same as the feelings of players.
  3. It's just so difficult to even have any hope of a win today. This team has crapped the bed so many times in big games when it counts, that to get your hopes up for a win will just leave you crushed. I'll be watching and hoping for a win but not really expecting one. And that's not how a fanbase should be.
  4. I think the biggest issue is your #3. He is constantly injured. He was on MVP pace when they won the Super Bowl, but as we saw, a very average QB playing a bit out of his mind was able to lead that team. I think when Wentz is asked to lead the team when it's not the perfect setup, he has had some trouble with that. And his injuries probably play a big role.
  5. The problem with any minor league team is that they play a majority of their games Thursday - Sunday. Unless they're heavy on former local players who have tons of followers, they'll be going head-to-head against UND hockey. Yeah, it's more family friendly price-wise to go to these games vs the Ralph, but what's the major draw vs high school teams?
  6. May have posted this before, but the hockey team at Cheyenne High School in Colorado Springs has been using the geometric logo for years.
  7. I love it when adults dislike something that's not even intended for them. Mike, like every mascot, is for the kids. That bio isn't written for the salty adults in the room, it's for the kids who want to learn more about Mike.
  8. Embarrassing for whomever "Siouxfan" is on that board. Fortunately, we don't have anyone that crazy over here
  9. Here in Germany, I went to a game last week with my Sioux jersey on and was asked about the Notre Dame sigh-ux. UND isn't top tier and even with a deep run into the Final Four in basketball still won't be a household name, or barely recognizable. Although, the f'n hawks logo sure stands out among other logos when displayed in a bracket.
  10. Markstrom is expected to be back this weekend. If he isn't, the Canucks play back-to-back on Saturday/Sunday. He could get in on Saturday vs the struggling Devils.
  11. What do you expect from jumbo when he posts an article? If it's a complete mess, he deserves criticism. Fortunately, it never is. The same can't be said about Goon, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't hold him to a standard that involves getting the names of players or teams right on a consistent basis.
  12. I didn't mention my credentials until someone said I was likely jealous of Eric's access to the press box. So if you want arrogance, I can go there with tales of my press access to collegiate and professional sports in multiple states and Europe. I have already contacted UND, but as I'm sure you know, that's not a precursor to disagreeing with something on Siouxsports. Is it too much to ask that someone who covers a team and sport we love actually know how to write?
  13. To be clear, I'm attacking his content not him as a person. I've met Goon and his family and they're nice people. I just expect UND hockey to have a standard of quality when it comes to press access. I have no problem with Seamore Sports and their coverage. I actually appreciate it.
  14. Everyone can start a blog for all I care. I had a NASCAR blog from 2004-2006. Dale Jarrett was the best. But that doesn't mean I deserved a credential to races. There are thousands, if not millions, of blogs by people that can't write. They can have a blog all they want, but there needs to be a standard of quality when it comes to access.
  15. Having sat in the press box at the Ralph and 5 other NCHC schools, the first four frozen faceoffs and been in the locker rooms of the Chicago frozen four, I don't have a hint of jealousy. I do have issue with a fan who starts a blog to "cover" their favorite team despite barely having a grasp of the English language.
  16. What, Adam Schill getting a shutout vs the Canisius isn't good enough writing? 3 grammatical issues with this tweet from our resident 8th grade "journalist."
  17. Anyone know the reason bemidji was wearing red unis this weekend?
  18. I see they have D2 club in mens and women's but is there anything showing they're actually adding them? Honest question.
  19. Shouldn't they actually have lacrosse in order to get a bid? They're at 20 sports already and need to spend a good amount of money upgrading facilities. They could maybe stick with 20 but could potentially drop swimming and diving.
  20. I'm sure a team from Buffalo will be scared of snow Grand Forks gets fewer than 43 inches per year.
  21. I'm happy with Kett reacting to fans who are giving him !@#$ at that point and I'm happy with Bubba getting in Kett's face for what he did.
  22. It was a win against the #12 team. Hopefully, the result inspires more fans to turn out. I really hope the conservativism was on Danny and not Bubba. Danny is still learning and can adjust, just as he did from last week to this week. If it's Bubba, then we need a new HC regardless of the results of this season.
  23. This was the type of offense we all hoped for when Danny was promoted.
