    What are everyone's thoughts?

    I'd like to see a better photo, or better yet, when they play on Saturday. That being said, I tend to like them. I'm curious what patch is on the shoulder, as it doesn't necessarily look like the interlocking ND. Either way, I'm sure I'll have to get one when they come out for sale...
    I like them, and I'll buy one too. They are a little similar to the Michigan St. jersey, but all and all they could be worse.

    It's really hard to tell. I'm hoping the school releases actual pics now that the cat is out of the bag, but I doubt that happens.

    New jersies look ok.

    Evidently the media is receiving a lot of comments about the controversy over the Sioux name and I found a lot of interesting comments following this brief article.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisf...not-acceptable

    Seems like the British have a good sense of humor!!

    Speaking as one of the British first peoples tribe (a bit like the american one but we dont seem to be getting the reservations or the casinos to run) I cant see what the moaning is about.

    My country's sporting mascot is a freaking rooster - one of the most ridiculous animals you could imagine. A fighting Sioux is way cooler. PS: I know I am not adding to the sophisticated unfolding debate about Native Americans. But still!!! A ROOSTER!!!!
    The Fighting Sioux often play the Golden Gophers from the University of Minnesota. Have you ever seen a gopher?? I think a rooster definitely beats a gopher.
    I don't think depicting native Americans as warriors is stereotyping them as savages. America values military power... It's a genuine badge of honour. If Indians were depicted as lazy, insular alchoholics... You'd have more of an argument.

    A real shame that old beautiful Sioux jersey is gone. Stupid NCAA.

I can't remember the name of it off hand, but I will look it up and let you know when I find out!
    Although mine was a couple of years ago. They didn't do it there, but shipped it out to get it done.

    Pretty funny when you consider that UND's entire roster, other than the top line of Kristo, Knight and Nelson, had fewer career college goals coming into this season than defenseman Justin Schultz scored these past two years. Throw in a handful of walk-ons, mix in a bunch of nickname b.s., bake for 6 months, and presto, a Broadmoor.

    Here's what worries me a bit, though.

    I've been pretty convinced most of the year that the WCHA is weak. Our teams got manhandled pretty good in most non-conference action, with occasional success here and there.

    Sometimes when you spend 3 months playing only each other, the closeness of the competition masks this overall deficiency.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I don't believe UND is the 4th best team in the country right now, just like I don't believe Union is the 3rd best or Yale was a top seed last year.

    I don't see us rolling through this region like we did last year. Minnesota probably has the best chance to make Tampa, just playing at home and with a lot of revenge on their minds, although I wouldn't discount W. Michigan or BU. I wouldn't be surprised to see a reprise of 1999 when no WCHA teams made the Frozen Four.
    I would not be surprised if there's zero WCHA teams in the Frozen Four either. But I take some solace in the KRACH ratings which have UND at #3. Unfortunately, Western Michigan is #7, BU #9 and MN #10. Its a tough road.

    I am also reassured by the attitude of the coaching staff ... none of this talk that fans like me do about how much we've "overcome difficulties", or "short bench" or "three games in three days". Its all about winning the next shift, and the next, and then the next. Who wants it more.

    I also give a ton of credit to the players for playing the system. Its not just that they are well coached. Its that they continue to play their systems and trust each other. Witness the first 30 minutes Friday, where we played our systems and even when Minnesota kept stuffing Sioux breakouts, it wasn't catastrophic because we held our "shape" (as the soccer people would say). There was no noticeable bickering on the bench because these guys trust each other.
