    Sioux Jerseys returning December 2018?!

    UND wore 58-59 replicas about 15-20 years ago. They didn't have a Sammy patch then. I suspect it might be the same this time around, unfortunately.

    So no one else knew about this...?

    I’ll second that request and add Sammy (the green and white only) along with any of the old Blackhawk style logos. Always wanted to have some custom pucks made with the vintage logos.

    Many seem to emphasize that it was McGarry, not UND or Kennedy, that went to the herald first and made this public.

    I agree with you there. Those are all fair questions to raise and points to make.

    Shell game is exactly right. UND needs to pay for the usage, services, and employees at the Ralph. Ticket revenue is simply the means through which UND pays for that. Take ticket revenue out of the equation, and UND needs to find some other source of money to pay for the usage, services, and employees at the Ralph. I understand you agree the funding for UND football is not tied exclusively to the football teams’ ticket revenue. The athletic department is going to allocate money to the football team regardless of the team’s ticket revenue. Others on here clearly don’t understand how any of this works. They actually portray it as the Ralph taking away money that the athletic department allocates to the football team. Changing the 52/48 breakdown or removing football ticket revenue from the usage agreement would do absolutely nothing to ensure more funding to the football program.

    This assumes all sports are funded through their respective ticket revenues. I have not read anything that would support that assumption, however. So why are some so concerned about 52% of football ticket revenue, when other sources of money fund football?

    So if football got 100% of ticket revenue, you’d be in favor of firing Bubba and replacing him with a top notch coach? Got it.

    So football is funded through other means than ticket sales---just like women's hockey was, which had no ticket sales. Since football is funded through other means than ticket sales, why all the hoopla about the Ralph getting the 52%? Serious question, folks. Please excuse my ignorance.

    Does the 48% of football ticket revenue that UND receives go exclusively towards funding the football team?
  13. Benny Baker

    Yes, I agree that poor performance has led to the football team averaging less than 10k fans per game over the last ten or so years.

    Nope. Never insinuated nor implied that at all. Just provided “details” about attendance figures over a longer time period, rather than just one season. Go UND football.
  15. Benny Baker

    Yes. And thank you for acknowledging that over the past ten years, UND football hasn’t averaged 10k fans a game.
