Them replies after the letter are awful! I cant believe people have no compassion anymore!

And than to say its the fault of the UND for using the name, are these commenters a bunch of teenagers? I have been to a lot of away games and never heard this crap anywhere! But I have never been to a game in Duluth, all I can say is wow!!!!

I apologize to any UMD fans that may be reading this, but that fanbase has some of the biggest idiots I've ever come across in my life. The only respectable UMD fans I know are my cousin and the teller at Wells Fargo. To defend this kind of thing is ridiculous. I'm glad I was raised to have common sense and decency of what is appropriate and what is not.

It's always our fault. You can't make this crap up.

This had me laughing out loud. Just funny.

And the last part, yep. It's popular to hate the Fighting Sioux.

Every fan base has good and bad eggs, but UMD seems to have 2-3 that roam the web that make their entire fan base look stupid. Back on topic, absolutely disgusting what was chanted. I can't believe they can pre plan that and everyone involved just goes along.

So Accourding to these highly edumacatped UMD fans it's the university of North Dakotas fault in using the nickname that results in the actions of racist and abusive chants of their own creation and use?...

I can only imagine, with that logic, ......what the UMD solution would have been to racist name calling directed towards African Americans or other ethnic bigotry......would they be howling for an entire race to change their names and visual identity as well?....

The fighting sioux usually wipe the floor with that team. They are lashing out because they can't beat us. It is classic jealous behavior in which they are lashing out. I truly feel sorry. Not to sorry as they have our trophy from last year.

Jupiter over at GPL just put this up tonight. Very cool tables show all the earnings of NCAA hockey teams. I was actually surprised to see Minnesota makes over 3x more than UND, who makes the second most in the nation.

I wonder if that is due in part to them rarely leaving Mariuccci. It certainly is true for non conference games.

I honestly have no idea. I just don't see how they can make so much more. Unless their FSN contract gives them a couple million per year. Which is highly possible.

Your probably right as it may have something to do with the tv contracts.

MN also has a huge fan base (relatively speaking, for college hockey) so perhaps merchandise sales, etc may contribute. I would guess the TV contract must be a big part of that, as mentioned.

That's very interesting. Denver, this weekend's opponent...breaks even? In fact, they are $1.00 in the red. That suprises me.

UND's are (I believe) par with Minnesota except for the more expensive series against Minnesota and Denver

I'd have to imagine by that list a lot of the schools just put their money at about breaking even and put the rest into other sports numbers or something judging by the amount of schools that break perfectly even. Looks like 1-26 do it with the actual numbers and 53-58 do it with actual numbers.

I can't imagin MN recruiting budget is very costly. Almost all their players still come from MN so it's not like coaches are flying all over the country to watch games.

Interesting that they think Minnesota will be a #1 seed. Also think UND will end up in St. Paul with Minnesota.

I don't think either of those would be stretches assuming UND makes the NCAA's...

After looking at this, you guys should be pissed that your team hasn't been better the past few years...you're the Notre Dame football of college hockey! :lol:

I would think the Gophers would almost have to win out to climb to a #1 seed. Placing UND in St. Paul makes sense geographically but the committee would be forced to ship them somewhere else if the seeds are Gophers as a #2 and UND as a #3 or #1 and #4.
