    What's Needed At The Alerus?

    I think both can be used effectively together. I think the band should be used most of the time. The band is one thing that makes college football great. Hearing the band play after we score or even just briefly after a first down or a big blay is great. Use the music for the intro, on 3rd downs to get the crowd motivated, and between stoppages in play (timeouts/quarter breaks/etc).

    NDSU has had "Yell leaders" for years. Something UND needs to have to help organize the students cheering during the game.

    2018 Season

    Amazing how fast things can change for a team in a season. Last week we were 2-1 coming off a huge upset win of a top 5 team on the road. This week, UND is currently 3 point dogs to 0-4 Northern Colorado.

    Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Look at the other mascots in the sporting world, especially college mascots. They are mostly goofy looking people or animals. And that's the point. If you want really want to rank the goofiest/weirdest/ugliest mascots, our Hawk is definitely way down the list when comparing to what is out there. https://www.google.com/search?q=college+mascots&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi9gvLBpdbdAhVMPN8KHTTAA4sQ_AUIDigB&biw=1280&bih=899

    How often do you see a head coach fire a coordinator in the college football world? I can't think it happens very often.

    What do you think of the logo now??

    Exactly. for those that were upset about the logo, we could have ended up with something like this. Given the alternative, I am glad SME went with an original looking logo instead of the same bird head logo like this one.

    UND- Idaho State Game Day Thread

    off topic a little, bit this was the scene after the game of the student tailgate lot. I am glad more students are coming to the game, but this is embarrassing.

    Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    https://fightinghawks.com/sports/2018/9/20/mascot-info.aspx Mascot Info- The Fighting Hawk A recent arrival to our Grand Forks campus has North Dakota school spirit soaring sky high. Our Fighting Hawk was migrating north when it spied the perfect perch on top of The Ralph. Scanning the locale, the bright green hawk was instantly impressed by the determination and resiliency of University of North Dakota students and athletic teams. Raptors use that same intense determination when stalking their prey and so The Fighting Hawk developed an instant bond with everything North Dakota… and forever pledging lifelong loyalty to our alma mater. Just like the North Dakota faithful, this is one tough and hard-working bird who is ready to team up with all of us to continue building our championship legacy. So, whether on the ice, court or field… the new mascot is prepared to cheer our student-athletes onto victory and see to it that we soar above each and every opponent! More about me! Hometown: Grand Forks, ND Honorary Graduate From: Hawkademy Major: Working on that M.D. (Mascot’s Degree) Relationship status: Single, not looking, in love with University of North Dakota Primary activities: Soaring, perching, hunting and, mostly, cheering on North Dakota! Favorite food: Bison burgers, coyote chowder and jackrabbit jerky Hangouts: North Dakota sidelines, stands, rafters (hawks are drawn to anywhere with a “bird’s eye” view) and especially loves spending time in the kid’s zone Favorite pastimes: Giving high fives, dancing to our fight song and, of course, posing for pictures with fans Study habits: Hits the books at Starcher Hall, regularly frequents IT department to replace missing computer mouse... Most loved holiday: North Dakota homecoming and “Hawk”oween Frenemie: Goldy Gopher; at least we both wear pants. On a personal note: Nothing scares The Fighting Hawk, not snow, ice, lightning or thunder. Especially not Thundar. Follow me!

    Why do I get the feeling that if/when the students vote on a name, it's going to be "Hawkey." I mean, it's not horrible but seems like they would want a name that is all sports inclusive instead of a name that makes you think of only one sport at UND.
