    No crawling over anyone by us. We've always had 2 seats at the beginning of a row, but actually haven't sat there for awhile preferring the bench seats instead. If there is a conflict with the women's game we either have sold the men's tickets to a friend or relative or in a few cases given them to someone who has never been to a game at Mariucci.

Kind of ironic because we had just decided 2 days ago to not renew the men's tickets for next year. Getting too old to go to both and we enjoy the women's games more.

    That's why he joked about it being an audition, not an interview.

    It's been a long week so I guess my reading skills are on "weekend mode." Lol

    My wife will be ecstatic, if he's hired, since she's been saying she wished he would replace Don Lucia for the past 2 years. I think he'd be fine, okay, maybe more than that. Hopefully, he'll give the team the energy boost they need and maybe an also needed kick in the breezers at times, too.

    I said it's been a long week. Not only my reading but my typing has also taken a backseat to my mental fatigue.

    Not having watched the game I thought maybe you were referring to some of the St Cloud player's having loose breezers. It's difficult to skate if you're having to pull up your breezers all the time.

    So I wonder if any of the St Cloud players heard rumors before the game with Air Force that their coach might be going to Minnesota? The #16 defeating the #1 seed hasn't happened since...oh, holy cow I just can't remember.

    Oh, holy crusaders I'd just as soon forget!
    They did say on the telecast today that over the years St. Cloud has been to the tournament 13 times but has lost their first game 9 of those times.

    You should take some time off to regain your strength, 6-8 months for a start

    It happened to SCSU in the last couple of years so this is their second faceplant. They were#1seed then too. We shall not speak of that other blue and white team humiliating a MN team

    Maybe some anger management during that time?

    I was thinking more like 6 to 8 days or at least 6 to 8 hours, which is already over. Oh well, no rest for the wicked!

    You know, it has happened before, but not where most people think.

    The upset that started all the upsets wasn't a #16, they were #15 - and were a top 20 pairwise team, on the bubble as making it as an at-large. It's remembered because it was the first upset of a 4 over a 1, but as we've seen, if the same thing happened today, it wouldn't be at all surprising.

    The first time a #1 actually lost to the #16 didn't happen until 2015 - when RIT knocked off Mankato. (So ironically the top 2 names that keep being brought up in the coaching search now share that rare distinction of being the only coaches that have been a 1 that lost to a 16!)

    I did not remember their colors so maybe it is starting to slip "the mystic chords of memory." Sorry about that, I just finished reading "Team of Rivals." I would have sworn that the team in blue and white was a 16th seed, not a 15th as previously posted. I do remember they were a good team though and gave the hated Sioux quite a battle the next game before losing.

    Air Farce not so much. 26 minute to get their first shot on goal

    I was thinking perhaps a cranial extraction. The methane seems to be causing brain damage. 6-8 months might be the minimum to recover
