Coach Hakstol On the Fighting Sioux's season “Like I said, it’s impossible to try to, at this point in time, put the season into perspective. If we could sit down and do this in 48 hours, I probably would do a much better job of it. …A very proud group of men that really wouldn’t take no for an answer throughout the entire year. We gave ourselves a chance tonight. One of the questions was, ‘What happened tonight?’ We had a good first period. We didn’t make enough plays tonight. Once we got it back to 2-1, we made a mistake to allow it to go 3-1 without forcing Minnesota to make a great play, and that really turned the tide against us. Momentum’s a big thing in a hockey game. That was a huge momentum swing tonight. In terms of our season, I couldn’t ask more from a group of warriors.”
While none of us enjoy watching our team lose to end their season with another painful loss, the reality is that only one team will end their season with a win and a national title. I have read a lot of comments on line from various fans talking about how this year’s team was a pleasure to watch and might have over achieved. On the other side of the coin, we still have fans that no matter what head coach Dave Hakstol does it will never be good enough until the Fighting Sioux win the national title. Yep, it’s been 12 seasons since the Fighting Sioux last won a national title.   During that same time frame three teams from the WCHA have won national titles - DU (X2), Minnesota (X2) and Wisconsin (1X). Those teams have also missed the NCAA tourney when UND has not for the last ten seasons. The last time UND missed the NCAA tourney was 2001-02. Until this season Minnesota has missed the NCAA tourney for three season in a row. Here is your chance to weigh in with your thoughts on the season. I am kind of interested to hear what some of the fans have to say about the season a day after the Fighting Sioux lost to the hated Rodents in St. Paul. What was your favorite memory of the past season? What do you want to see next season? What did you think about the new North Dakota Hockey Jersey’s? Who stays and who goes? What’s your thought on the coaching staff?
