    Time to Boo Berry?

    So basically just be happy with the participation ribbons that come out in the multi thousand $$$ season renewal packets that are being mailed out a little over a month from now? The championship club loves Kool aid drinkers like yourself. Does UND have a chance to rebound next year? Yes. Was last year below par? Yes. Was this season even worse? Yes. Not saying the world is ending tomorrow but don't pretend that this year was even close to where UND hockey needs to be.

    I'm glad you were able to take time away from your MENSA meeting and English Comp class to call people names mixed in with big words that only serve to try and deflect attention from the team. Losing two to Canisius hurt in the pairwise? Say that out loud. It's not even a resurgent (not that I'm sure that they were ever good) Canisius team. That is where UND hockey is at right now. The crown jewel of the school is dangerously close to sliding into mediocrity and will need 2-3 Freshmen to come in next year and produce right away like Kristo, Spirko, etc, to avoid that fate. Not impossible but a tall order.

    Ridiculous to have standards that low for a premier program like UND, but UND is shaking your hand for it (while their other hand is pick pocketing your wallet). UND hockey should have standards like Duke basketball, Alabama football, etc, not be happy with participation ribbons like Michigan Tech and Canisius get for trying hard each year.........well let's just stick with Michigan Tech

    They absolutely equate. If Berry misses for a 3rd year he needs to be done. Wisconsin showed what happens when you ride a coach too long and you hit bottom. I don't think Eaves was a bad coach and I don't think Berry is a bad coach, but there comes a point where your record doesn't lie.

    Funny you bring that up, because watching this year's hockey team was about as exciting as watching a robotics competition......or watching someone else play a video game.

    ITS OVER!!!

    That may be true......but UND can still offer a facility and a near NHL like fan following that should still make a difference. Parity has also affected college basketball in the sense that most teams can be competitive on any given night....but at the end of the season you still see the Duke, Florida's, and Kentucky's of the world.

    Don't really blame Hennesy and even the Hons Twitter rant. They make a living/partial living by schmoozing the UND hockey team. Not much different than Paul Allen and the Vikings.

    University of North Dakota 2019-20 Season

    Agree that JBD is the biggie this off-season. If he leaves it's a trainwreck. Adams would be best served transferring to another college and sitting out a year to get bigger/stronger. On a positive note, I think the Hain Senden Smith line has the potential to be one of those prolific lines people talk about years down the road.
  9. There's no choice but to be all in on next year's freshman class. 2-3 of them need to hit and come in Senden like for this team to have any chance.
  10. Thank God this season is over.
  11. Stay the course....trust the system.....pucks will start going in.
  12. We also would have accepted "they are now worth about as much as your UND football tickets"

    UND @ DU -- First Round NCHC, Game 1

    Yawn.

    UND @ DU -- First Round NCHC, Game 1

    DU 3-1 with an empty netter. Poolman scores the lone goal for UND. No reason to think UND suddenly finds offense this week as they have to step up significantly from the last two weeks of competition.

    COMMITTED Sioux Recruits

    Mismash has shown flashes, Weatherby still has a chance as bigger guys can take longer to develop, and Guch has turned into what I consider to be a solid 2nd line type of scorer........but Adams has been a bust and shown nothing his two years at UND. He's the underclassman version of Hoff or even Januitenean. He's small, not particularly quick/fast, he's not strong, and he doesn't have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Not a good combination.
