    Filling the Ralph

    They initially should have given the students 103, 104, 105, and 106. Opens up 108 and 108 to Diamond Club members. they make more money off of those seats. Plus, 306A, 307, 308, 309, 310, 310A they could either sell as season tickets or have as seats they sell to the general public. Unfortunately, like I said before, the majority of people in 103, 104, 105, and 106 aren't giving up those seats.

    The REA and UND screwed up by putting the student section where they did in the lower bowl. In the old Ralph, the students had half the arena. Obviously they couldn't do that at the new Ralph, but they wanted to make sure the students still had great seats in the lower bowl and not just put all the seats in the upper bowl. They really should have done what most college hockey arenas do and put the students at the end we shoot at twice. Also, splitting up the students and having some in the upper bowl and some in the lower killed the vibe as well. Not sure there is much you can do about it now.

    Unless you can convince the REA that making money is a bad thing, that ill never happen. Money trumps all.

    I suppose this one wouldn't fly anymore either. Anyone recall this one?!! If you can't score a goal hit the ref. If you can't score a goal hit the ref. If you can't score a goal and your team is in the hole, If you can't score a goal hit the ref.

    Filling the Ralph

    There was a group of 5 of us in college (late 90's, early 2000's) that went to all the games together. We named ourselves the "Siouxperfans." (Where my screen name comes from). We started many traditions at games that are still done today. From the backing up beeping when there is a penalty at football games, to the "You sit" chant and the slow sieve chant at hockey games, it is awesome seeing these traditions still going almost 20 years later. That being said, the pride and joy of our group for cheers that we started that are still going today is the "Sioux Yeah Yeah" cheer!!. We rotated the person that would yell "Sioux Yeah Yeah" at first, but it eventually fell to my friend Brett who was the primary "yell leader" for the cheer. He may have been the person that you saw running around riling the crowd up. Unfortunately he lives in Florida, so he is not available

    One thing that has always bugged my about the Ralph is every time there is a stoppage in play, there is an add read over the PA or a commercial on the screen. I get it. they have to generate revenue and that is the best way to do it. But man is it a buzz kill. The best part of the Vegas game was during stoppages, the Orleans played awesome music which really got the crowd into it. Obviously they will never get a way from the adds during the game, but man I wish there was a way they could have less adds.

    Obviously people go to the games to watch the team play live. But you need to look past that to keep people coming and to get new fans to make the commitment to pay the price for tickets/parking/food/etc as opposed to just watching it at home. College attendance for many sports is decreasing. Especially in the student section. Not school is immune from this. Ticket prices at the Ralph are also getting to a point where it is getting really expensive, especially families, to go to games. The one thing that UND has done, but can do a better job at, is the in game experience. Football has done a great job with improvements they have made to tailgating, in game entertainment, branding at the Alerus, etc. the committee they formed to focus on that really has done a great job. The hockey program doesn't need to work as hard to market the game experience. Year in and year out we are National Title contender and have always had high end talent on the ice. Not to mention a facility that is the top in college hockey. But UND and the Ralph can't just bank on that and think it will be that way forever and get lazy with their marketing of the product and appealing to the paying customers that walk through the doors. Maybe a committee similar to the Football game day experience committee needs to be formed to ensure that the hockey game day experience continues to be the best in the country.

    What do you think of the logo now??

    I agree with you on the gray. Not a huge fan. The new basketball jerseys with green letters on gray are awful. The dark ones they had last year were much better. Take my comment as a tongue and cheek remark about #siouxforever fans. I am with you on the green. We need more of it not less.

    Hate it all you want the the MVFC gets maybe over ranked, but UND will most certainly benefit being in the Valley moving forward from 2020 on. If we go 7-4 in 2020, we are in the playoffs without a doubt. Doesn't help us now, but something to look forward to I guess!!

    If I was new to ND hockey and say the fans in the stands, I'd assume our nickname was still the Sioux!! Perception matters, but only when it is something you want to perceive as important.

    Initially I didn't see the Sioux silhouette on the right saide. I saw a failed attempt at making it look like an indian with a colorful headdress. A couple minor tweeks and you can see it.
