  2. In a column/article about UND hockey, longtime Herald sports writer Tom Miller dropped this bomb: Really, Tom? You had to go there? It's 2017. We're several years removed from the previous regime, we've grown, we've matured, we've tasted success, we've made the playoffs, and we are full of hope and optimism for the first time in a long time. Yet, you had to take a snipe at the previous coach? By name? Show some class. The writer here could have used big boy words and made several creative or witty allusions to the recent down period for UND football. He could have indirectly referenced Mussman a million different ways, and all of the readers in Siouxland would have gotten the joke, and maybe even smirked a little. He could have taken the high road and tied FB attendance to fan apathy or performance generally, instead of calling out a coach or a staff. This was small, petty, and mean. And bush league journalism. Okay for Deadspin, I suppose...maybe that's where Tom's aspirations lie. The Herald is blessed to have such an excellent sports writer in Brad Schlossman...I only wish the same could be said for his colleague and understudy. Boo, Tom. Boo.
  3. Just a friendly reminder that single-game tickets for your Defending National Champion UND Fighting Hawks Men's Hockey Team went on sale today. BONUS REMINDER: This would be a great opportunity to redeem those Ticketmaster settlement discount voucher codes you might not even remember or know you had. If anybody needs help locating such codes and/or redeeming them, post a request here and I'll give you a quick tutorial BEFORE you check-out at the TM site.
  4. Art is subjective. http://artblog.catherinehoman.com/is-art-itself-subjective/ It is shamefully ignorant to suggest otherwise. Moreover, every person is free to dislike a particular work of art. By that same token, no person has any business whatsoever telling another how he or she should respond to that work. And out of minimal respect for the art, and the artist, one should not confuse his or her own negative aesthetic emotion with an assessment of the objective quality of a work. The notion that there could be a singular drawing that would instantaneously garner anything close to universal acclaim and acceptance as the Fighting Hawk logo is fiction, and a fantasy. Words like "good," "better," and "best" are meaningless except to the individual using them. The hyperbole and vitriol I have seen expressed on this subject lead me to believe that many were looking for something that simply does not exist. I have no doubt that many will keep looking, ignoring the harm it may cause. Petitions and calls to the President, and veiled (or not) threats of withheld donations, are sure to follow. Some will quietly object by not buying anything (thus depriving UND of royalty revenue), while others will sit in silent judgment on friends and neighbors. A few will make it a point to noisily reject the logo at every game and at every gathering in hopes that a friendly ear will be close by. So, for you personally, does this fool's errand continue and if so, how long and to what end? How many iterations, and how much time, trouble, and money, until 'they get it right'? Assuming you'll accept something short of perfection, what qualifies as good enough?
  5. "Identity," as defined at dictionary.com From the logo reaction thread: How's this for a reason: the interlocking ND was not UND's identity. Like it or not, this is a problem that was never, ever, ever going to go away. I find it ironic that many of the same people who continually lambaste UND's administration over a lack of leadership and the failure to take action to address problems (e.g., the budget) are finding it so difficult to praise the leadership now and give credit where it's due for taking a definitive stance and -- finally -- giving UND Athletics a true identity.
  6. Over the years, I've seen a lot of people on here cop a serious, borderline snobby attitude about cartoonish logos and goofy mascots. Regardless of what UND's new Fighting Hawks identity looks like, here is some proof that UND is going to need something more than a 'logo.' This is a huge part of what college athletics is about and, IMHO, this is the kind of fun and frivolity that UND is and has been sorely lacking. I think a mascot should be priority # 1 going forward.
  7. UND's Fighting Hawk is going to need a name; I'll start: Clarence Beaks.
  8. Here we are, less than 24 hours from the title tilt in Tampa with Quinnipiac. I'm curious, what do people think about the relationship (if any) between the ultimate success on the ice and the nickname situation?
  9. http://www.grandforksherald.com/opinion/letters/3910873-letter-memo-fighting-hawks-logo-designer-have-fun This guy gets it. When was the last time any of this was fun? Haven't we had enough solemnity, seriousness, and negativity?
