  1. FLOhockey....new network covering college hockey for the BIG, WCHA and Atlantic Hockey conferences.....great new exposure in college hockey hotbeds....Minnesota , Great Lakes area, PA, NY and New England areas...Great exposure for to add to expansion of the sport...
  2. You are correct....5th....Mankato. Is WCHA...but it must be Western Michigan's fab facilities...that has them rated that high...Some of you believe the 'fake news' hype of the Heralt'...As I've said before....I do like hockey and followed UND hockey since Rube Bjorkman days...Current state of UND hockey is arrogance....by some......
  3. 5-0 win was a good start.....latest 'National Poll' had 'Hawks at #18... 6th rated team in the conference...behind the 4 usual powers plus Western Michigan....early polls don't really matter, but gives a look at what the nation of hockey thinks of a school/team....
  4. Play for pay....now the law in California.....MN legislator bringing it up in January for that state....will affect, Gophers, Bulldogs, Beavers, Huskies, Mavericks....Will it hurt teams in states w/o such laws... in recruiting........(sidenote: this will be tested in the courts...but this morning....Lebron tasking NCAA to get onboard with this)
  5. I type in sound bites.......you millennials should get that.....don't hate UND...got a paycheck from there for a time.....just distaste of 'puck' arrogance....Duluth is beautiful...plus lots to see and do there......St. Cloud is one of the fastest growing metro's in MN.....much faster growth rate than GF.............(that enuff periods for you grammarians)?????....with the changing hockey landscape....I don't see UND returning to dominance........
  6. Pre. Season 4th place finish....closer to 5th , than 3rd.....Arena doesn't do it anymore....most everyone has good facilities...it's 'exposure' for the kid....plus community livability....Grand Forks great for the locals.....but ...pretty low for most hockey 'mercenaries'....they also don't get off on 'tradition''....it's 'what's in it for me...now!!' .....just sayin'...
  7. Love to read your statistics...as to % of Native Americans who approve of old. nick name....I'll wager most of you who still embrace the Si**x name are 'white' ....can't get beyond your own ignorance of cultures.....I have a son in law who's NA, one d'in law Latina and one d'in law Philipino....most racism, some subtle-some not, goes completely over the heads of 'whites'....my kids' spouses have certainly enlightened me..
  8. Thought it 'way beyond your level of sensibilities'...given your blog handle....that ol' moniker will pass just like the first UND nick name....will fade and become a piece of trivia....
  9. Have a friend who attended the game in Fargo last weekend...several times throughout the game he heard the Bizzon 'droolers' let out the chant 'Sioux suck !@#$'...not original and speaks to a certain mentality.....however it highlights the reason 'Indian nicknames' were deemed offensive.....it's one thing to shout "Jackrabbits suck !@#$' or 'Cyclones suck !@#$'...but this is not only taking a shot at a University logo but a group of human beings.....Hope the 'Siousie sniffers' see the difference...
  10. Wild to name Bill Guerin as GM...comin from Penguin organization....to be intro'd tomorrow...Go Wild..

    2019 Season

    I see the Crookston Daily Times is owned by the new 1.4 billion dollar mega media merger......would be great to see them purchase the Herald and restore a 'home town' feel to the paper......

    2019 Season

    Kuddo's to the Herald for its coverage of Fighting Hawk football...hope it carries over into the BB season....like to see 'fair and balanced' sports coverage of sports that most Americans care about.....(it's not just about 'hits'....lots of folks still get a paper news product)
  13. Article in today's Strib about the possibility of the University of St. Thomas and Northern Michigan adding DI women's hockey...both in discussion phase with WCHA but both have some internals to figure out....One interesting note from the commish of WCHA women's hockey..."St. Thomas has an 800 seat arena ready for use which would be about the right size for women's D I hockey"....maybe that's an issue...separate venues as the light attendance often looks sad in large men's arenas.
  14. Some of you are upset at the arrogance of the Bizzon FB posters on this board....rightly so....but matched by the arrogance of the 'Siouzie' hockey sniffers...both need a good douse of humility.....
  15. Those that know me...know that I am far from bring sad or bitter....what I find pathetic is that if I disagree with your script ....or take a shot at your 'baby Jesus '...you resort to name calling.....I'm sure some of you are young, or at least , immature , by your responses...Name calling rolls off me...I consider the sources....
