Just an FYI, Fink is no longer listed as a UND recruit by Heisenberg.

So were you and rabid up late last night perusing Heisenberg for decommits? I see he posted the same comment, at about the same time, over on Chris Dilks' site.

There was a poster over on Sioux Sports that said if Chay is able to play at all this season he can't take a medical red shirt.
If he were to come back at this point and play in even a single game I don't think he could take a medical red shirt because he would have played in the second half of the season.

Yeah, that was mentioned over on the Sioux blog as well.
Brad is going to contact Fink and see what is up.

I like Lucia's attitude about wanting the best players on the ice from his team AND his opponent. That's the right attitude to have.

Confirmed:


Hopkins native Mike Fink says that he decommitted from UND a few days ago and has re-opened his recruitment.

Fink, who currently is playing for Des Moines in the USHL, said that UND wanted him to play one more year of juniors, but he wants to move on.

"I decommitted a few days ago," he said. "North Dakota wants me to play another year and I want to try and go to college next year and I want to go somewhere I'll play a lot. It's obviously nothing against UND. I realized I probably wouldn't get the playing time I needed or wanted there and I need to do what's best for me."

Fink originally committed to UND two-and-a-half years ago.

Good luck to him with whatever teams he lands with. I wonder if he'll catch on with another WCHA team? Maybe BSU or UNO...something like that?
He probably made the correct decision based on the players we currently have and the other forward recruits coming in within the next two seasons.

Too luck Fink, too bad we never got to see you in a Sioux sweater.

Sigh... The latest in the fighting Sioux nickname saga from today's GF Herald:




Supporters of UND’s Fighting Sioux nickname who lost their lawsuit against the state last year filed an appeal with the state Supreme Court Friday.

It could extend the life of the nickname because it could block the State Board of Higher Education from retiring the nickname until the court decides on the appeal. But Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said Friday the appeal doesn’t prevent the board from changing the nickname if board members choose to do so.

The board will discuss what it can do about that at its monthly meeting Thursday at UND.

Grand Forks attorney Pat Morley, who filed the appeal on behalf of the supporters, said it typically takes as long as nine months for the Supreme Court to decide, but he understands the state will seek an expedited hearing and he’ll agree to it. However, Stenehjem said Friday he expected it would Morley asking for the expedited scheduling of the case.

It could all be over in 45 days, Morley said.

The nickname supporters, all members of the Spirit Lake Dakotah Nation, filed the lawsuit when it became apparent that the state board was getting ready to retire the nickname at its Nov. 19 meeting in Minot.

A settlement between the state and the NCAA, which considers American Indian nicknames offensive, gives UND until Nov. 30 to win the approval of both the state’s Sioux tribes to keep the nickname. The supporters had already campaigned successfully to win their tribe’s approval in April, but fellow supporters at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have strug-gled.

Last May, the state board decided the Nov. 30 deadline was too late because UND wants to join the Summit League athletic conference and the league has said it won’t consider an application until the nickname issue is resolved.

When Standing Rock tribal leaders showed no signs they would move toward nickname approval anytime soon, the board began discussing retiring the nickname early.

Nickname supporters argue that the state is obligated to stick to the original 2010 deadline because it has an obligation to them as Sioux people who would lose out if the nickname is changed.

But authority to change UND’s athletic nickname is “part of the core responsibility of the Board of Higher Education, and not the courts or anybody else,” Stenehjem said.

Geez, one bad loss and this guy already jumped ship.
Fine, we don't want you back once the postseason begins.

I liked the team's effort in the game, they just weren't rewarded, especially in the 2nd period. If they work hard, those bounces will start going their way and in the net. Now off to NY, where we need to at least split the series.

No doubt. I think they played well for the most part.
They controlled almost the entire 2nd period, and then just fell completely apart after the fluke goal. Then they played well again in the 3rd.
Not a bad effort from the Sioux, just not their night at all.

He already said he isn't coming to the F5. That means I can put my feet up on his seat! I'm all for it. MEg, Biddy, Boosh and I will have lots of fun taunting him.
