The really important question waited for the end of today’s press conference.
Will the UND coaching staff go with toques or fedoras for Saturday’s outdoor game against Nebraska Omaha at T.D. Ameritrade Park?
“I don’t think we’re built for fedoras,” UND coach Dave Hakstol said. But the coach didn’t rule anything out.
There should be a lot of interesting sights on Saturday afternoon when the takes take to the ice at the home of the College World Series. Yes, that was the topic of today’s media session.
The team hit the ice after interviews for a quick practice, then they are scheduled to board a bus and begin their trip to Omaha. They will go as far as Sioux Falls tonight and finish the drive on Thursday morning.
Everyone also talked about the fact that they are currently preparing for the indoor game on Friday, not the outdoor game.
UND should have a full complement of players available. Nebraska Omaha will be without forward Brock Montpetit, while Mav forward Zahn Raubenheimer is doubtful.
We’ll have a few stories leading up to the series and the outdoor game. Check back for them throughout the week.
Here’s a transcript of the live chat from today.
