Gotcha...as long as they don't hang a banner with *2020* on it in line with the National Championship banners.

Pretty much a black banner with just 2020, but by itself.


I was confused by what you meant the first time.

Ok. Have to clarify.  What exactly did Berry say about JBD?

He just referenced “next year” when talking about him. 
 

I also heard his interview on TSN yesterday and he was the same way but the interviewers couldn’t get him to bite on whether JBD was returning or not. He just said they were still going through conversations. I think Berry knows but wants JBD to be the one to announce the decision.

Have to register now to open any article in the Herald?  Ridiculous.  Continue writing your own obituary...

Fargo Forum just announced that they are going to suspend the printed copy of the paper on Mondays and Fridays due to loss of advertisement revenue.

With the announcements of guys coming back, it makes one clear message. These guys want to finish what this year’s team started and continue to right the ship of the program after a couple lackluster season.  Could not be more excited for the upcoming year. Hopefully some more announcements are made.

They already do, but teams will give UND their best every weekend. And if they handle business like they did in ‘19-‘20, it will be another fun year.

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.

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.

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!

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

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!!
