sanford steps in

That wouldn't surprise me at all; however, when does Sanford get designated as a regional monopoly?

What's going to be needed in the Hawk's Nest? I'm optimistic, more seats in 2020.

I still wish they could make a horseshoe by putting seats in the one end.  And then on the other end make it entirely glass so some natural light can get in.

Couldn't do a horseshoe but could add fargo loaf style end zone seating.

I guess that is more what I meant.  I realize curved seating isn't going to happen.  But seating in one end zone and then glass on the other would be pretty sweet.

Chelsea Dagger after every touchdown!

Copycatting the hockey stuff is weak.  Like #RollTribe or NDSU's hook 'em weak.

Why not make it a school tradition instead of #hockeyonly?

Western Michigan uses Chelsea Dagger after every touchdown. So I would more so look at it as copying them since its football.  But if you want to make it a hockey thing....

But I do feel it's funny a bison fan is telling me that copycatting is weak. NDSU's athletic department lives by copying others. Don't get me started....

The copycatting all started in 1890 when ND Agricultural College started after we were in buisness for 7 years (1883).

In the early part of the last century, they were called the Fighting Aggies. How many of you knew that?

I already started by saying it's weak that NDSU does that...so..yeah...go for it I guess?

I think most people are familiar they used to have a different nickname.  I think they've also went by Farmers at one point. Wish they'd kept one of those old names.

So their logo could look like Nebraska's. Instead of red just sub in yellow and Farmers instead of Huskers and boom.

Although glass on one end and seating in the other end zone would be spectacular upgrades, it is quite the pipe dream.

From a realistic perspective, I would say:

1) NEW sound system

2) New turf with fighting hawks logo at midfield and end zones -- this could become reality in a few years as the Big Sky logos will also need to be replaced by MVFC logos

In the end zones I would just put the word--- Hawks---.

The current turf was installed prior to the 2013 season.  We join the MVFC in 2020.  I would anticipate the Alerus waiting until then to install new turf.  Still relatively new.   Hopefully when they do replace it the 3rd times the charm and the Alerus decides to put in a midfield logo that IS NOT the Alerus Center logo but the Fighting Hawks logo.

The Alerus Center might not be the Alerus Center in 2021.

When do the naming rights expire there?

According to this article from 2015, the deal was for 20 years.  So it will expire in 2021.

Also, I guess I didn't realize the Alerus Center changed their logo.  Ironically one that features "bird wings" in the A.

Does that mean it goes back to the original name...Aurora.
