As the leaves change color and the weather gets cooler, it means only one thing. If you thought hockey, guess again. Its time for North Dakota hockey players to be busted for drinking offenses in various watering holes around Grand Forks.

Sophomore forward Danny Kristo will be benched for Sunday’s exhibition against Manitoba after being cited by police for underage drinking. In whats sure to be the first of many crimes this season, Kristo surely won't be the last.

There is obviously a lack of things to do in Grand Forks, so here are a couple of suggestions:

1.) Go to class
2.) Get your GED
3.) Watch reruns of Gilligans Island
4.) Figure out why you went to UND in the first place

The more likely scenario is that DU won't sweep anybody this year.

You failed to mention when Oshie was cited for a loud party 10 hours after losing in the frozen four

I suppose this brightened your day after yesterday's tragedy of realizing Denver Boone has 2500 more friends than you.

Its funny you highlight so many offenses by UND. Nice call on St. Cloud last week too. Seems like you are envious of all other teams. I'm sure that no underage DU hockey player drinks, or at least none have been caught... why.. Denver residents wouldn't be able to recognize any of the DU players yet alone know that there is a college D1 program in the city.. UND players have a better chance of being recognized in your city.. now that's sad. You'll never be anything more than jealous of the true WCHA power team 'UND', when you catch up on Nat'l titles and conference championships then speak. Otherwise zip it and be happy you are in the top 5 of the WCHA..

Denver has the same number of National Championships and one less WCHA championship, sport. It really isn't that tough to rip on the Pioneers, so next time know what you are talking about before you try. Thanks.

until the usa figures out that the drinking age should be 18 this will continue to happen....so what who cares, you all were never 18, 19, 20 right???? boys will be boys!!! leave them alone, look in the mirror, dont throw rocks......what did you learn in kindergarden????? GET A LIFE AND QUIT RUNNIN DOWN KIDS!!!

DU players aren't perfect in case you haven't heard... didn't Maiani get suspended last year as well for a game? I believe so. so I wouldn't laugh too much b/c one day the shoe will be on the other foot and it won't be the last.

DG just likes bad lil boyz - that's all there is to it - quit hating on him...

I think the police in Grand Forks need to take more of a "Sergeant Scultuz" approach to their police work.

Wow! Looks like a lot of Sioux envy if you have to spend so much time compiling a teams past.

ND their players getting arrested. Other teams hide the fact that players are getting arrested. Which program actually has the most arrests? Hard to really to know.

No Denver hockey players have been arrested by police since the early '90s.

That doesn't mean they are choirboys - there have been team and school disciplinary actions taken on DU players, but none of them have been police-related.

DU tries to recruit character players, and for the most part, they get guys who have stayed out of police custody....

Joe- we learned not to break the law

Please tell me this won't affect the drive to make North Dakota a state.

Dirty said...

Gwoz is obviously paying off the Denver PD and Post. Either that or DG and Swami are paying them off. Because we all know DU players have gotten in trouble since the early 90's, it just doesn't get reported.

Dirty- did your Mommy ground you again? You have been posting alot lately. If she didn't, you should really try to get out of the basement and get some fresh air

I'm certainly no Sioux fan, but considering there's no other charges (assault, etc), I'm about as upset with him as if you would have written he walked down a street.
