    2019 Season

    Of course UND is. But there must be other schools that have the same issue who are much bigger. Side note, I'm hearing there's a chance Holm could be back next year regardless. Not sure if that's related to him only playing 4 games this year or if it's related to that Sophomore year. Would be great if he was able to play more than 4 this year and also get that year back.
  2. I may be misinterpreting your post, but it seems you're blaming him for not expressing his concerns earlier to coaches/trainers. While I agree that it could have been helpful, I also think when you get to the upper levels of competitive hockey, there's a stigma to admitting something is wrong and seeking that help. Hell, it's something that has a stigma in everyday life. I think instead of blaming the player, we blame and work to fix the culture of making players feel like they have to hide/play through their problems/injuries. Every year, we hear about guys who play through some horrific types of injuries that would have sidelined a normal person for months. And we applaud the guys for being tough and old-time hockey players. And that's what these kids feel: they need to push through the pain and suffering, even if it's detrimental to the team at times. And especially, even if it's detrimental to their long-term health.

    It doesn't apply to Rodgers because he took a redshirt year, but are there any instances where a player could petition the NCAA for an extra year based on the new 4-game redshirt rules? For example, Evan Holm (the only UND player I've found that this applies to). He played as a true freshman in 16-17. 4 games in 17-18. Rule gets passed the following summer. Plays more than 4 in 18-19 and presumably 19-20. Based on rules at the time, that makes him a true senior. But can he petition the NCAA to have that true sophomore year considered as a redshirt year for not exceeding the 4 game limit? Just retroactively applying the 4-game rule. Also, the UND football roster website is horribly inconsistent. Sometimes it list players as a Redshirt Fr/So/Jr/Sr and other times it's just as Fr/So/Jr/Sr even if they took a redshirt year. Made doing this research much more difficult, as I initially thought it could have applied to 3-4 more players.
  4. This thread is quite the stretch to try and make something that's religious into something associated with universities. But, I'll play along. @SiouxVolley, what type of proven science should they be teaching at universities?

    But how beat up is UND if they have to play another game next week? Potentially, having to win the last 3 of 4 with an injured D line. Before the season I would have preferred UND to play 12 games, but that late-season bye sure seems to be helpful.
  6. She is competing within the rules set forth. If you have a problem with it, take it up with the Big Sky.

    Minnesota Sports Trump is a fantastic follow too

    They played well against two MWC teams, beat perennial best 5 loss team UNI, and have won the games they should. This week and next should tell us more. If they don't win in blowouts in both, then UND could steal the game.

    3 games to go. 2 of which should be definite wins.

    I agree, but we're also looking at first and 10 from the 25 if that PI gets rightfully called. Instead, it's 3rd and 10 from the 40. The offense went a bit too deep into the flea flicker well but those are fun to watch.

    Great job by the D today to keep those playoff chances a live

    He did a jump pass instead of planting his feet. It still went 40 yards, but you gotta set.

    Great call! And that throw is exhibit a as to why Boltmann isn't the QB

    Let's get this party started! Go UND. Also, some MSU news:
  19. Build it and they will come. So many cities throughout the world have seen that making downtown attractive again will draw people. Good for GF to get on board.
  20. The NCHC needs to schedule more games against Atlantic Hockey. Head to head, the NCHC is even with the B10 and Hockey East, but schools from those conferences have played AHA teams 9 and 8 games respectively. 9 of B10s 20 wins are against AHA teams and HE is 2-4-2 vs the bottom league.
  21. I guess I gotta say 72-2 UND so I can be on @Stockdamhockey's team!
  22. Yeah, because the apathy of fans is exactly the same as the feelings of players.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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?
