    Heck UND fans don't think UM as the best team in Minnesota anymore, they have been behind both Saint Cloud and UMD for some time
    Minnesota has been the 4th best team in the state for awhile.

    Agreed. I would much rather North Dakota beat Denver than Minnesota. Of course, I live in Colorado...so that may have something to do with that. As for SCSU and/or Duluth, it's probably about equal in comparison to Minnesota.

    The rivalry is certainly a shell of its former self...which I believe was one of Lucia's goals in pushing to not continue the rivalry after realignment.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Gotta love the rodent fans here. The obsession is still strong.

    I can only speak for myself, but you are the next game up for us. I was curious as to how this past weekend went for you guys, as that could affect this next game. I like to hear thoughts of opposing fans, status of the team, etc. It's not personal. Well, until puck drop. Then you all can die in a fire. After the game, though, I'd be happy to have a beer with...most of you all.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I see a few MSU fans here and last I checked there's a game coming up between the programs.

    No one knows, last I heard. It should've been, unless Vegas underestimated hockey (which had been their reputation). I would think that after the Knights' season, this might be rectified in the future, if given the right matchup.

    Didnít get to watch a lot of either game as itís harvest season but what I did see was UND had some trouble with their team speed. Kato is a good team. They will make the tourney come March. UNDís goalies were horrid Friday night but much better Saturday. The one positive is they scored 8 goals after only scoring 2 total against Bemidji. Not sure what their identity is yet but one thing it isnít team speed. Should be a good one in Vegas a game that should of been picked up by CBS Sports or NBCSN.

    I would imagine the organizers didn't think they could justify the costs against their anticipated ticket sales.

    On team speed: "Team speed, for crissakes, you get [expletive] [expletive] fleas on the [expletive] bases, getting picked off trying to steal, getting thrown out, taking runs away from you. You get them big [expletive] who can hit the [expletive] ball out the ballpark and you can't make any [expletive] mistakes." --Earl Weaver

    UND seemed to be playing the classic Gopher style of hockey: go ahead and score 4, we'll score 5. Unfortunately, that isn't really sustainable overall.
