  1. Pretty sure his dad went to UND. Typical Cities pretty boy, but a good enough dude and hopefully he steers his kid to Engelstad.
  2. Nice work Moderator. Would love to read only about UND hockey on this website, but a handful of you guys (moderator included wtf) feel compelled to unnecessarily bring a very debatable and politically sensitive topic into darn near every discussion. I bet the other moderators are really impressed with your posts like the above.
  3. It is science-based, but a bunch of people in this country decided to make it political. I know, it's crazy.
  4. I think most of us don't, but some people are experts on all subjects and like to come here and point out even the smallest flaws in other people's decision making. Bonus points if there's a reference to the so-called "raging pandemic".
  5. Let's talk about some new or good restaurants in GF so we stay on thread! I know the mods only shut down the political talk when there's a response (ref always get the retaliation!) so I guess you guys can keep it up. Personally, I miss Player's. Two for one drinks and half-priced apps really helped me out back in the day. I used a Jedi mind trick on the bartender/manager to get a pitcher of beer and four Morgan Cokes for the price of a pitcher. 4 beers in a pitcher, the equivalent two-for was 4 drinks. $8 I think. Had a good local stumble my last couple years at school with a cheap buzz at Players and blackjack and dirty girls at Southgate. These days, I'm a big fan of JL Beers and Vinyl Taco.
  6. yep, sorry. shoulda just pasted the pdf like stoneySIOUX up a couple posts...
  7. Mishmash Adams Kawaguchi Hain Pinto Gaber Budy Weatherby Ness Blaisdell Senden Caulfield (Keane) Kiersted JBD Sanderson Frisch Kleven Bast Scheel Go Sioux!
  8. Agreed - not like I'm going to root for those metro/private school/Eurotrash Pioneers or anything, but it would seem like the best Pairwise scenario is for UND to hold on to the #1 overall (maximum protection in any potential bracket iterations) and have DU stay on the 1-seed line to avoid ending up in their regional. Wooster with BC as the 2 sounds like something the Sioux would get "rewarded" with, but hopefully it's more like Allentown/PSU. disclaimer: single-elimination postseason hockey is highly dependent on streaky snipers, goaltenders, and puck luck. Above discussion is meant to pass time in late January and will not have any bearing on the eventual results in the NCAA tournament.
  9. Have two extra in 302. Will sell for a beer and a shot each. Thank you.
  10. That makes sense, thanks for clearing that up. Getting the login credentials out of my non-tech savvy parents was such a challenge that when we finally logged in and couldn't watch, I was devastated. Guess it's time to get the credit card out for NCHC.tv... Thanks again.
  11. Anyone have any tips to use MidcoSN online? My folks are visiting and we tried to use the TV Everywhere-->MidcoSN stream, and we got to watch some high school football. The hockey showed on the schedule, but couldn't find a way to stream it. Any advice?? We listened on the radio, but were hoping to watch tonight. I've been on the fence about NCHC.tv this year but maybe I'll just drop in. Thanks for any help and go Sioux/Hawks!
  12. That picture against the Gophs looks like it was taken right by the TV well that our tickets were just above. Great shot!
  13. In a long career of lurking on sports message boards, this current discussion might actually be one of the most ridiculous I've had the pleasure of reading. Gripe all you want about the lack of scoring on the current squad, but to waste people's time saying we don't have an elite program is the definition of trolling. Or a colossal waste of time for all involved, tough to say. I'm a UND hockey fan and roughly 58% Irish (100% on St Paddy's Day), and this guy makes me shake my head. I'm guessing he has similar struggles with the difference between weather and climate?
  14. Sweet thanks. Pony up for playoffs NCHC.tv or listen to Tim on the radio sound like the options...
  15. Any intel on TV for this series? NCHC.tv only or any chance of CBS or one of the Fox College Sports channels picking it up?
  16. What'd they have for sale - Dakota Legacy? Any pics or anything?
  17. No question there was fat to be trimmed in the WH budget. I understand wanting to treat them equitably to MH, but at a certain level of expenditure you’ve got to pump the brakes and realize that the women aren’t playing in front of a packed house like the men. Was just down in the guts of the Ralph, and the ladies were living pretty large for a minimally revenue producing college program. That said, I think there’d be a way to maintain a women’s program at the school with the best and most storied hockey tradition in all of college hockey. The REA is a heckuva facility and it’d be great if they could support a program for aspiring female hockey players – doesn’t have to be a jetsetting Olympic feeder program, just give kids a chance to play some puck before they move on with their lives after graduation and get a professional career that isn’t their collegiate sport. You know, like 99% of every athlete (m/f) at UND outside of MH over the last two decades.
  18. Refer to my previous comment regarding your reading comprehension. It's also possible you didn't read past the first paragraph in my post, which would also explain it and potentially be an indicator that you got a little more value from your theoretical UND education.
  19. It was actually a way of saying "I understand where you're coming from, and may even have thought that way myself at one point" and then presenting my opinion that is obviously different than the majority of people in this thread. That said, my character is virtuous af, no pretenses about it.
  20. This was funny, if maybe a little concerning. Will be wary of anyone drinking mimosas at all future UND hockey games I attend...
  21. It's an idiom, not piling on or name calling. And your second sentence is what's known as a "straw man argument". Whew, I've lurked on this forum for a decade and should have known what I was in for if I decided to chirp up.
  22. You might need to look up the definition of hypocrite and/or work on reading comprehension. Cheers broseph.
  23. I hate to interrupt the circle jerk in here, but the point you guys are missing is that some people think it’s important that college hockey be available to girls->women. I agree with them. I may not have ten years ago when I was saltier and a little more conservative, but now that I have a slightly different worldview and a baby girl I absolutely think women’s hockey at UND shouldn’t go down without a fight. I’m sick of career administrators making the “tough decisions” while making a buttload of dough and then retiring to Colorado or wherever and not giving two sh*ts about the tough decisions they made. It’s easy to point to the dollars and cents and say that hockey needed to get the axe – but the opinion of the people wanting to save the program is that a $1.3M deficit can be made up a number of ways, and eliminating a program at what we like to consider the premier hockey school in the country isn’t how they would have done it. Does the women’s team live a little large for the revenue it brings in? Absolutely. Do we need to prioritize Olympians (some foreign) over local players and budgets? No. Could we cut the WH budget by 30% and make some deeper administrative cuts to make up the difference? I think so. Doesn’t take too much senior-level “reorganization” to free up a decent chunk of change to allow UND to provide an opportunity for girls to grow up dreaming of putting on the green and white. This website has gotten hard to read for someone with different opinions. There is rarely true discussion; it’s all piling on, name calling, and mildly-to-moderately flawed logic getting passed around between the same 10 usernames. I think the nickname situation just has all UND fans itchin’ for a scrap, regardless of topic! Go Sioux!
