  1. 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..
  2. 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....
  3. 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...
  4. 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)
  7. 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.
  8. 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.....
  9. 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....
  10. Glad this board is 'tempered' with Hak's new job....the Fargo Heralt' almost wetting itself with the news.…man/boy love is almost scary....I rest my case....he's 'wet himself' in the big one....never having won the ultimate as a player or coach...maybe he can, by riding on Toronto's coach's coat tail.....….
  11. Yes, I knew that John'S Hopkins is a power in lacrosse and that Notre Dame has brought success and depth to the BIG in hockey, my point was/is that UND is not in the same realm of academic standing/prestige as these 2 affiliates or the BIG, which was the main reason for the non invite....
  12. Great series of articles in the 'Fargo Herald' (Grand Forks afternoon paper) on the future and vision of Big Ten hockey...I found the commish' comments about affiliate membership in any BIG sport telling....they've added 2 affiliates....John Hopkins in lacrosse and Notre Dame in hockey........more to do with 'like minded institutions in standing' , than athletic performance....kinda puts closure as to why UND wasn't asked to be a part of BIG hockey....
  13. No UND incoming Fighting Hawk players, nor NCHC, drafted in round 1....Sure some will come off the board today......Some on this board have accused me of not liking hockey....not true.....I do follow hockey, quite closely actually...Berry seems like a good dude....what I dislike is unwarranted arrogance, which I perceived was evident within the previous coaching regime, and with some 'newby' fans who only have that as a perspective....Blais, Gino and going back to the mid 50's the UND coaches practiced 'hard nosed' hockey with just the right amount of humility.... College hockey today, has quite a bit of parity, which is good....prolly won't see the dominant programs like Michigan, Minnesota, BC and UND have the 'runs' they previously enjoyed....that is good and will ultimately return humility and gratitude to programs....and fans alike....

    The Herald

    Further demise of the Herald, in it's attempt to make hockey 'mainstream/relevant'...Front page today, above the fold....an article on some kid from Piss Creek, Sask...who may or may not be drafted...when Sacred Heart....a local team finishes 3rd in the MN state baseball tourney.....their best ever finish.... Watch out....I listen....to CJOB Winnipeg...the sports leading radio....every morning...Toronto and all of Canada....loving the Raptors....Look out....'Mainstream invading the 'holy land of pucks..."
  15. Looks like John was their primary KR/PR last night...saw in box score Brady had a tackle....must be on special teams...Roster finalized this week...
