    Kennedy vs donors... again?

    And what you (and KEM and her cohorts) need to understand is that a school's #1 revenue sport absolutely has to help fund the other programs on campus. And that isn't happening right now. My first loyalty is to the school itself and all its programs/missions. Not to one individual (coach, president, etc.). Not to one program at the expense of the others. And definitely not to one donor, no matter who her daddy was. And that is why once 2030 comes around, the Engelstad Foundation and whomever else has their fingers in this need to be out of the picture. Permanently. That arena is one big cash machine. I cannot believe that all the profits are eaten up by operating expenses. The convoluted management structure is perfect for hiding where the money goes vs. where everybody thinks it goes. I have said this before, but we need a forensic accountant to untangle the finances of this arena. Because I think there is a lot we don't know. And it would infuriate us if we did. Either this situation changes or we should just move back down to Division II. Because being a low-end Division I athletic department is not in the best interest of UND. And I believe it is not what most supporters of UND want. We also should cultivate relationships with other potential donors. Division I costs way more than Division II did and we need more revenue streams than the Champions Club, 50/50 raffles and leftover table scraps from REA, Inc.

    And no talk about Hot Goalies either.

    Your response is what he is aiming for. He writes provocative stuff to get a reaction from people. That is what he gets paid to do.

    Shaw's gone.

    I am guessing Shaw's replacement is on one of the Frozen Four teams. Our season ended a month ago. The college hockey season ended last Saturday night. Why else would Berry wait until now to make the move? Just a hunch.

    Shaw's gone.

    You'll get told that he won't ever come back, but they won't tell you why. I don't know if he would leave a high level position in the USHL for an assistant job in college.

    2019 DI Mens Ice Hockey Championship

    I guess I don't really care one way or the other, now that Denver is gone.

    2019 HOF Class of 2019

    And here is the team that started it all. It was so sweet to stick it to Amy Ruley in the Bison Sports Arena in the regional final (and during the next two years as well)!

    Why don't you contribute something meaningful to the discussion?

    Everybody starts out somewhere. Based on this logic, Clifford would never have been hired at UND. It is also unlikely that Shirley would leave after less than 3 years on the job; he seems like a North Dakota lifer. We need stability and loyalty right now, not more instability and wanderlust.

    March Madness 2019

    As long as the Unholy Trinity (Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky) isn't in the Final Four, I am okay with whomever wins.
