Assuming the winking and smiley emoji would obviously mean I was being sarcastic.  My bad I guess!!  I figured the "Mafia's 2 emails a day for the past 4 years" part would pretty much end any confusion.  Apparently not!!  

 

Wait, I didn't think the MM emails bit was a joke, though haha.

Who's to say the athletic department didn't have some input?
It's not like The Ralph to remove Sioux Logos without a push?

It’s actually adding some logos that have been a part of the past.

Looking at the latest picture inside the Ralph, I noticed that the banners of the other NCHC schools that were previously hanging above the South bar were not put back up after the new video board was added.  I wonder if they are moving those to a different location.

This was a missed opportunity to dig into a conference change conspiracy theory. "Did anyone else notice that the NCHC school banners are down?  This has to mean we're joining the B1G right???"

I heard the 8th member of the new WCHA, but must bring back women's hockey to join.

Did I miss what they did with the "old banners"?

That set will probably fetch a pretty penny at the Gala as the "last (and only) Ben Brien Sioux logo hockey championships banners" and the ones that first flew when the new Ralph opened.

oh please, he would have done 3 a day if it was via pony express.  Odds of a mail bot program fighting for room on his ipod?

Assuming the Ralph sticks with "era specific" banners that have the logo the team was wearing at the time of its championship, this will likely be the banner next year hanging with the other Conference Championship banners.

While I have seen a lot nicer, as a supporter of the University of North Dakota, I love it. I could look at 15 more like that before I go.

There should be no banner, except for the Penrose one. Don’t hang second place or what if’s. Recognize this team on the wall somewhere else in the arena, but not with a banner.

Hang a small "banner" that is black with "2020" on it it in white letters.  Put it next to the retired numbers.  Would recognize the season that ended early.

At the risk of being banned from this site, I have an issue with #23 being retired, but that’s just my opinion.  

I do get misty-eyed, however, at the new era-specific banners hanging in the rafters.  They’re gorgeous.

I like them too.  And hate to be a stickler, but really wish they had the actual logos UND was using.  Every time I see 1980, 1982, and 1987 now, I think modern day Chicago Blackhawks.  It might be a trivial distinction to most, but UND's never had that logo on their jersey.

The  "blackhawk " logo UND used on the jerseys in the 70's/80's is the one on the banners of those years where UND won a Championship.  Not the current Chicago Blackhawks logo.

 

3 hours ago, Benny Baker said:

May not be the exact, current blackhawk logo, but those logos are absolutely 100% not the logos on UNDs jerseys in the 70's/80's.  The easiest way we know this is that the logos for the 80 and 82 seasons were different than in 87, but every blackhawk-style banner in Engelstad has the same logo.

 

3 hours ago, Siouxperfan7 said:

I get what you mean.  But having that era logo consistent on all the banners looks better than displaying multiple logos with only slight differences.  Heck, the Brien logo changed over the years.  The new banners look great.

Frozen4sioux's moniker is a good example.  I think that is what the Sioux were using in 80, 82.

I like the Boston Bruins banners.  The logos/B's on those banners show slight variations over time and history, but those variations are consistent with the actual logo the Bruins were wearing.

Wrong.  UND is pretty much using the 1996 Blackhawk logo on the 1980’s banners.  While it looks better, it was not the one that existed a decade earlier.  Further muddying things is that jersey “uniformity” then is not what it is now.  You often had Sioux players on the same team sporting different crests on their jersey fronts due to different vendors supplying the school with patches.  CRAZY!

 

2 hours ago, Benny Baker said:

Right on.  I think 82-83 through 85-86 seasons were especially a hodge podge of uniforms.

 

2 hours ago, MafiaMan said:

Agree on that point.  I’m not sure I’d like it as much seeing a half dozen different Blackhawk logos on the banners. This is a case of “close enough” for me to be happy.  I’m just glad the Brien logos are gone from all of the national championship banners.  Nice logo, but didn’t mean anything to someone on the 1959 team!

With the 2020 NCHC title, Engelstad will be hanging 27 championship banners next year.

Let's not start hanging participation banners now.

Agreed.

 

I agree with the idea mentioned earlier that take a wall and honor the team that way.  I'd also be open to other/additional ways to honor the team as well, but banners at the Ralph are meant for very specific, and very special, accomplishments.  Not for what could have been.

Right!  This is UND we're talking about; not St Cloud State!!

Carried over from the other thread...carry on!
