  1. Read last week that St. Thomas: 1) made ACT scores for entrance optional, 2) dropped their MBA program and 18 faculty positins, 3)?got a 20 million dollar donation for scholarships... Smells like D I to me ..

    The Herald

    I just read the parent company of the St. Paul Pioneer Press just bought about 8-10 newspapers in Minnesota...the closest being one in Intrrbational Falls....please buy the GF Hrrald, the Bemidji Pioneer and the Duluth Ttibune and stop the 'drip, drop' death knel of Forum Comminictions of these once proud news organizations....
  3. Read I yesterday's Strib that the NCAA will meet soon to discuss a path for U. of St.Thomas to join D I...think the. Pioneer League makes sense for them...academics stronger than MVC...also many private schools....also thinking Big East for BB...same reasoning....hockey has some issues with rink availability...perhaps WCHA or NCHC...WCHA makes more sense as the Tommie's will bring women's sports as well....enrollment is 10,000 undergrads...plus a grad school...
  4. Wentz seems like a nice boy....just can't stay healthy...prolly should retire as concussions are life altering....Byron Buxton will also,be a bust....can't stay healthy....Twins would be smart to trade him.... Off topic I know, but similar situations....
  5. Sad the Hawks lost....you posters who say 'UND FB is stuck in the 90's/early 2000's' are hypocrites .....keep callin the team 'Sioux'...that ain't happening....OBW look it up....'why did FSU, Utah and Illinois get to keep their name and logo'....it wasn't the NCAA...it was the hard headed approach by the legislature and UND itself....but that's the way of some folks....blame others for self induced situations..... UND will beat the 'juicers' sooner rather than later....Mark it!!!
  6. Good to see Berry and Motzko are beer drinkin'., pizza eatin' buddies....Lucia had a strong ego and Hak was/is just a hateful guy....glad boff are out of that rivalry...
  7. I stand corrected.....this team is really good...Happy for Berry...it's mostly his system...mostly his recruits....hats off to him snd the team......the ghost of 'coaches' past are just that, in the past.....I can enjoy UND hockey again.....

    Hak

    Is Hak toxic with respect to the NHL
  9. 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...
  10. 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......
  11. 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....
  12. 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)
  13. 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........
  14. 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'...
  15. 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..
