  1. Granted I am not about to try and figure out the details of how the Pairwise ratings work, but don't understand how St. Cloud can remain at #2 after a loss to #25 Miami. So much for the Pairwise killer theory. By the way Thanks Miami, Penrose Cup closer!
  2. Reason I did not want Hawks as the nickname. Example of how we are now just one of many Hawk schools, not even getting it correct
  3. A Bald Eagle or a hawk..... Really.
  4. Sad, sad day in so many different areas of the nickname topic. Never to be the same, will never be better. The press conference and video was also sad. Do not see nickname as a good choice amoung many other issues associated the selection IMO. Guess the students got their choice. Good luck younger generations and others who voted for the new name on trying to promote a bird as your symbol of greatness and pride for a great University.

  6. Agree with you 100%... But I think It will be the "Fighting Hawks" because there to many NoDak voters against Roughrider name. Should be a great hockey series this weekend, Hawks vs Hawks. Go Hawks. Sad so sad!
  7. I am not very familiar with the difference in quality level of the WHL compared to Division I College Hockey. The reason I am asking for an explanation I noticed ex-Sioux player Tambellini in 27 games played this year has 28 points, +12. Could he have contributed like this if he had stayed at UND? Was it a better move for him to advance his hockey career to leave and play in WHL with Calgary Hitman?
  8. I was hoping he would stay but figured he would go. Good luck Rocco, we will miss you.
  9. Nice article, enjoyed reading it. Thanks for posting.
  10. I just could not believe they were showing the NDSU BB game. I keep thinking there must be a snow storm or something because it was an outdoor game and maybe the hockey game was cancelled. A meaningless BB game over a National TV sporting event of any kind is just plain stupid. Don't give me the argument of the almighty advertising dollar either, that just does not pass the stink test. Bad Bad decision IMO.
  11. Thanks for the info. His numbers do look good, that is why I was interested in finding out more about him.
  12. Sorry if someone has mentioned this earlier in this thread but what is the story on Gage Hough, now playing for Omaha. Committed? Is he good enough to play DI hockey? Are we interested in recruiting him? Just curious.
  13. Do you know for a fact he has not given to UND? I do know he has given to Williston High School through anonymous donations. Not everyone wants their name in the spotlight when it comes to giving donations.
  14. Phil was born in Montana and moved to Williston early childhood and graduated from WHS. He now resides in Whitefish, MT The gym building at Williston High School is named after him.. Phil Jackson Field House. He has returned to Williston a number of times including his past two high school class reunions. This summer he was asked and returned to Williston to act as the Master of Ceremonies for the Babe Ruth World Series. He was very gracious and gave a inspiring talk to the young baseball players at the Opening Ceremony banquet. So I would say he has not lost his fondness for ND
