What's Needed At The Alerus?

Maybe so, but the REA getting a new scoreboard was probably about 100th on my list of issues and desires for the hockey team. 

Agreed, but at least they are drawing crowds - Led the nation in attendance.  Both Bubba's need to pick it up this year.  I love the football only fan's reply to any issue -  "but hockey".

Don't get me wrong, I love our hockey team. But big screens have never done much for me.

Are they though? 

I think we can agree both programs have some work to do to get actual butts in seats next year.

Personally, I've never understood conference logos on a team's playing surface. 

Really?  You're smart enough to know that the conference wants it for marketing!  Come on Sicatoka!!!

Wait til UND is in THE VALLEY...according to what I've seen from some other fan bases, you may need to be calling your doc after 4 hours...

Because of a migraine from hearing all those mouth breathers bloviate?

From the priapism problem Sic mentioned in another thread...THE VALLEY seems to cause issues with that...

No the priapism was only for JuiceU. I want to enjoy the game after being fleeced for a ticket (which I admit I paid for on my own). Now you priapism for a whole conference? Every game?

Is that a side effect of Clean Victory?

I did not go to the game against Drake but did hear from my dad that game day programs are no longer being printed.   Does anyone know if this is something that's becoming a trend at other schools around the country?  I think it's a bad idea.  I don't want to constantly be pulling out my phone to determine who's who and I certainly don't want to print the program at home prior to going to the game.  This seems like a bad idea to try to save a few dollars...

I prefer to spend the $2.00 for the program.  However I will print off the roster and 2 deep for the games from now on.

Looks like it might be for all sports.    Making a pdf available before the game.    I would always try and get a FB program over the years and it was rare they had anyone selling them on west side of the Alerus.   If I wanted one, I'd have to hike to the east side.   If they discontinued printing them because of low sales, IMO they didn't work very hard at making them available to half the arena.

It might be a generational thing but glad programs are now online only. I would say a lot of the printed ones go unsold or tossed in the trash after the game. Seems a lot of waste in paper, ink, and trash space. Also saving the school money on the unsold programs

Waste of ink maybe.  Paper is recyclable.  If it's truly costing the school that much money, raise the cost a buck or two.  

Not sure how wifi is in the arena this year, but historically it's been very difficult to access internet while at the games.  Hopefully they improved it if we need to rely on it in order to access the game day program.

Don’t know if this has been mentioned but the team’s entrance against Drake was embarrassing. There was no flow to it and the light stayed on.

just opened the digital program from Drake game.  would be tough to read at the game on a phone.  lots of old people that couldn't manage that at all.

kind of agree but my guess is 1/3 of the people attending games (not just UND but NDSU as weel, like my father) would not know how to view a program online.
